Veronica said...

I'm NOT looking forward to my 100th post. You did a great job.

Karen said...

Phew - what a list! I wouldn't have the patience. good job!

Theresa said...

yeah congrats ( a little late) on your 100th blog- mine is coming up soon to.

What a list- like your last one:)
many things stuck out the bike ride- I can see why you are done for a lifetime- I too hate clutter, and use my credit card for everything-frequent flyer miles baby! And way to go on never having a cigerette- I took a puff once but that was all. Can't stand the smell of smoke.

Have a great week

As you requested, here is the site I got the instructions on how to do the peekaboo posts. Follow the directions to the letter, except I would do #3 right after you save your blog to your desktop. Love this hack. Have a great day.

Expandable Posts with Peekaboo View

Shaunda said...

WOW! Congrats!

JaniceNW said...

By being stuck in a rip you mean riptide in the ocean yes? On the west coast we call them riptides and on the east coast they are called the undertow. I have lived in both places.

We have quite a bit in common. Good list!

Jennifer aka Binky Bitch said...

I made it! I made it!

I, too, am unable to parallel park, hate gambling, am NOT a daredevil...we have lots in common!

Lori said...

Woowee...I dont think I could think of 100 things about Great list. I have a little something for you over on my site. Come and check it out.

Heart of Rachel said...

Congratulations on your 100th post. I enjoyed reading these things about you.

So many interesting and wonderful things about you. You don't wear a watch? I seem incomplete without one. I think #89 is sweet. I love bubble baths too. Finding and marrying the man of your dreams is one of life's greatest blessings.

Tracey said...

That was awesome! Thanks for sharing. I don't think I could THINK of 100 things to tell about myself...

Amanda said...

Wow! Thats an interesting list. Thanks for sharing.
You've done well to make it to 100 things about yourself....I've tried doing a post like this several times but always run out of things by about 30.

ditto 60
99 - it's my best source of humor ;)

AnGlOpHiLe FoOtBaLl FaNaTiC said...

We have quite a bit in common, but I'm very confused about 98. Catholics are Christians.

baby~amore' said...

Thanks to all you made it- a marathon ...Veronica,Amanda & Lori - I had lots of inspiration, read a few other 100 posts, (cut & paste), use numbers as significant years of things you did, add it a few you can't do and a few you can do, something you liek (chocolate, bubblebaths) and borrow the rest.
Looking forward to yours and Theresa you too.
Thanks Lori ... I am honoured.
Thanks sandee -still working on Peekaboo.
Yes Janice- riptide is called a rip here.
I will check you your Jennifer.
Rachel - not wearing a wrist watch comes from being a Nurse - I did wear a fob watch at work but too lazy to put one on off at home. So lost the habit.
Dallas - yes I agree laughing at yourself is fun.
Angliphile - I hope it wasn't your list I 'borrowed' ideas from ...uh oh! No offense to catholics but just attending a Catholic church didn't make me a Christian.
Thanks for stopping by everyone.

KT said...

Wow! I love your 100 things! I used to read Trixie Belden too!! Haha!!
