What a great list!! Did you write it all out first and then post about it? I miss you so much and since I'm an emotional wreck these days, I cried while reading your 100 random facts. You're welcome.

Alissa said...

I loved reading your list and I love feeling like I know you well enough to have already knew half of that. And in someways we are so similar other ways no way no how. :)
I totally understand the excercise thing, what happened? I find I loath it right now.
I'm doing the free trial with Netflix-I've been thinking I should do a post of the movies that I've liked so far-So look out for that post.
Well, this long enough! Good to hear from you!

I was certain that #100 was going to say, "I'm pregnant" or something to that effect. That would have been a perfect ending to the list though ,eh? I had myself convinced it was going to be that and I was getting really, really excited. But alas, nope! lol I'm such a freak, right? We miss you guys!
