My friend Brittney posted 100 things about me on her blog. I found it enjoyable to read. I wondered if I could even come up with 50, so I decided to give it a try. I found this to be hard for me.

Way to go! This was awesome to read. I'll challenge you to a game of scrabble. I have never lost at it. It's MY Game! Thanks. Britt

It's funny how so many years apart and I still know a lot of these things about you. You're awesome! I am inspired! :)

Slight problem-we are thousands of miles away! Guess you'll have to come visit. Once you see the new pics on my blog, you are going to want to-he!he! Britt

Most of the time I feel like I have known you forever but sometimes I feel like we just met. I think that is what I like about you. I am always finding stuff out about you that I did not know. It makes for a very interesting friendship. Well, for me anyway! I am inspired. I think I might try to come up with 100 things about myself as well.

Kurt says that one reason he was/is attracted to me is that I am/was "mysterious". Still am I guess.

I think anyone who reads this should do 100 things about them. I would love to read it.

I loved reading your list. You are a very interesting gal! I must say we have a lot in common, but I am particularly JEALOUS of your 7 Broadway shows in NY!!! no fair...I've only seen 4 and they were no where near the east coast. fell off a 25 foot cliff on your snowboard? That has always been one of my fears. Last winter Vern almost went off a cliff when we were skiing. I came around the corner to find him literally dangling over the edge trying to recover one of his skis! Did you brake anything?

Nicole, I didn't fall. I dropped in on purpose. It was the scarriest things ever, but it was one of those things where after you've done it you want to do it again. But I didn't because there was no way I was spending another 30-45 min. hiking in snow.

The only reason I went was because my hubby went off and yelled up to me that it was only like 10 feet. So I did it. Ten feet, landing in powder, it can't be that bad, right. After flailing my arms in the air for what seemed like an eternity, I knew there was no way it was 10 ft. He only told me that to get me down. No broken limbs,no nothing. It was all powder. I'm glad he lied to get me down, it was worth it!

What a great list! There are so many things about everyone of us that no one else knows. Good job for posting 100 things.

My Three Sons said...

ok, you're definitely braver than me! I guess the little white lie that it was ten instead of twenty may have helped me go down, too! Powder is the best!

He licked your eyeball??? The "18 Mexicans" scenario is a hoot. This is a neat idea.
