I said I wouldn't but I have....

I’m going to try the 101 things again…

1. I wear slippers in the library when I study – I hate to wear socks, so I normally just wear flats and bare feet – that get’s cold – so thus the slippers, but no I don’t walk around in them

25. I have a child – a furry, four legged one named Max

30. I can’t and don’t drive and have no intention in learning
31. Dirty Dancing is my go to chick flick – Pride and Prejudice is close behind… but I am a sucker for the dancing – maybe because that’s repressed as we all know what dancing leads to, right?

101 is a lot of things...6 months or so ago I found buffy seasons 1 and 3 used cheap. (I hadn't really watched it before.) So I started with season 1 and ended up watching all 7 seasons. Great fiction. I'm a fan.

38. Used bookstores and coffee are my idea of a bit of heaven on earth…

My "101 Things About Me" blog was the BEST procrastination blog I have written yet (that was in my other blog that I deleted though). And I inspired like 3 people (or more) to write one too. I wonder if Louie Lou will write one....

LeahA said...

Jenn said...

I am blonde, we all know it, not point in candy coating it Cheryl.

24. Ya for the kids - it's the only way to get a story across - make fun of yourself

26. Social context - he doesn't care that I'm single, have no grand-babies on the way or that I have a propensity towards bad language

28. Yes only homemade - more specifically it's the rinds of green unripened watermelon - the whole don't get rid of anything...

36. I do live in Vancouver

38. Totally Portland...

43. Is more that the stuff stays in the house forever because we don't have recycling here - I have to give it to my parents. Speaking of which I was going to see if there was a community compost...

60. I know that's why I eat it...

71. I know - seriously like oh shit!

73. Boo to Andrew yes!

87. I do have a thing for well quaffed man-hair
