100 Things

Apparently a cool thing to do on your blog is make a list of 100 Things about yourself (I first saw this on The Pig's blog, and have since seen it on a couple of others). Never wanting to be the one that's not with it, I pondered long and hard and finally came up with a list of 100. So, without further ado, here are 100 Things About Me:

Oddly enough, I knew all these things about you - except how many cars you & Hubby have had. But I knew it was a lot. I don't understand why you don't like popcorn.

angelq said...

I've been working on my list for the last week. I'm such a follower apparently.

24. me, too!
37. me, too!
38. never owned one of those...
65. Done that - with cjh!
75. That is so great!
81. You haven't met the right one.
86. me, too!
100. I do! It's so much fun!

Bubba's Sis's BFF said...

Very cool! I should do this myself....and you know you aren't the only person in the world who doesn't like margaritas or popcorn, I don't like them either. But, what's this about cats? I think Cleo is insulted. ;)

cjh said...

Ok, I sneakily read this yesterday when I should have been leaving to go to work (like away from the house). I didn't allow myself to comment then, though.

Ok, I counted. There are 28 things I could just cut and paste onto a list of my own. Is that cheating? Maybe we are Hillary/Chelsea. :o) I'll have to work on my own 100 things sometime soon.

Bubba's Sis said...

I can't wait to read everyone's lists! I think it's a great way to get to know everyone, plus give yourself a little introspection when you are making your own list. I have already thought of a few more things, so I may do like Pigs and add to the list from time to time. Like 10 Things at a time, the way she does. Is that copying?

Bubba's Sis said...

cjh -

Which 28?? :-)

I think you and I are a lot alike.

cjh said...

While there are some I can agree with, I maybe wouldn't include them in my own list. Ones I would include (but will try not to b/c I do think it's cheating): 9, 13, 18, 22, 24, 27, 33 (thus actually answering your question here), 37, 38, 40, 44, 45, 47, 56, 61, 65, 67, 68, 69, 73, 74, 79, 89, 91, 95, 96, 98, 100. Ok, I got 29 that time...

Bubba's Sis said...

You can include any of those on your list - after all, if it's true about you then it should go on The List! I don't consider it copying.

Now, let's eat a bunch of chocolate and then take a nap with our lovey-pillows!

nora said...

I will begin my list.

me too on 6, 9, 15, 27,31, 36, 40, & 42.
7. I wish I weighed that.

That's a lot of cars, yo.

No. 10 is just gross. GROSS!!!

Bubba's Sis said...

No it's not! It's yummy!

Hiya. I just wanted to say that your being a Texan with roots in Mississippi and Tennessee isn't necessarily why you like to go barefoot so much. I'm a New Englander who was raised near New York City, spend my summers on the Jersey shore... yet I like to go barefoot as much as possible. So it's not a southern thing, that's for sure.

See ya :)
