I'm so glad you wrote this list!

I'm totally fascinated in #7, but does that mean I have to wait 7 weeks to read the back story to that?

What in the world? to #24, 29 and 33.

lelly said...

great list! i, too, cannot stand the feeling of newsprint, and have gone to great lengths to photocopy the crossword puzzles onto regular paper!!

and i cannot STAND the song Red, Red Wine.

lots of things in common, and yet, you definitely have a lot of "uniques" on your list.

Not sure if my first attempt at commenting came through or not... Kind of new at this blogging thing. I guess that could be added to my list.

Wow, quite a list! Mine would be quite boring in comparison to your list. I am proud to say that I knew and understand most of the things on your list, but I also was able to discover new things about you. Thanks!

I love your list! You are one cool chick!

Oh, and by the way, I don't think I fit in very well in the mommy world even though I have 4 kids.

Oh and another thing - there's no way you're going through menopause! You are way too young!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Oh, just saw that you are a fan of David Sedaris. I'm loving that!
