  32. I relish sitting in cafes by myself with a book and a latte.
  33. I ‘never say never’. I think it is a jinx.

  56. My front tooth is chipped. Noticeably.

  58. Caffeine doesn’t really affect me. I can have a coffee one minute and go to sleep the next.

  82. I wish I had stuck with the piano when my Mother wanted me to take lessons.
  83. I am a homebody.
  84. All of the jewelry that I wear regularly means something. The trio of tiny gold rings I wear on my thumb, the circle necklace, the small dot necklace, the tooth necklace… they all have meaning.
  85. If I were to do all that I aspire to do, I’d have to quit my dayjob. (I’m not going to do that though.)

  94. I have a little crush on Will Ferrell. And James Gandolfini. There are reasons for both. Oddly, they are both the same reason.

  96. And have LOTS of peppermint.
  97. I only started getting carsick this year. I get it bad sometimes now. Ugh.
  98. When I fly, I love to make up stories of where the other passengers are headed and why, especially if they are particularly interesting looking.
  99. I live in my head. A lot.
  100. I like to make lists. Obviously. I make these 100-things lists for several reasons. They force me to really think about things that I like, things about myself; it is a wonderful way to explore and a neat challenge. And, they are neat documentation. In ten years, I can come back and see what all has changed.

  1. more similarities. πŸ™‚

    i agree with you on no. 8.

    i share your nos. 11, 14, 17 18, 27, 28, 30, no. 34β€”my right foot is ALWAYS colder than my left! it drives me crazy! πŸ™‚

    i also share you nos. 36, 41, 43 (except movies, not books), 47, 48, 50, 52, 61, 64, 66, 73, 78 (one of my faves, too. do you own any Django Reinhart – spelling???), 80-83, 85, 89, 90, 95 (has to be made with real milk), 96 (with lots of butterschotch schnapps and whip cream), 100 (i make lists ALL the time and never use them.)

    i’m gonna try your no. 31, because i think that sounds like a blast. πŸ™‚

    your little (i mean big) lists are so fun. they would be a great resource if someone was ever to write a biography about you. πŸ™‚

    merry new year!

    • I know you wrote your list a long while ago, but I just read it today (home sick for three days does fabulous things for your life!) And anyways, I think you list is simply divine!!!! Love your blog. You made my ho-hum-flu-day so fun!!! I will be looking for a tile for your kitchen backsplash; if you’re still working on it. I love home projects!!! I am making a ballerina tutu shower curtain and painting my bathroom a wonderful pink! And of course a million other things! someday a dream closet!??…..

  2. Thanks for you comment about my bicycle image.

    I have such a difficult time doing lists, and posts that involve a lot of writing. Not that I can’t write, but I live such a busy life – mostly work. I never seem to have time. But was wondering if you’d mind if I copied and pasted yours, with responses to each item. To sort of highlight your post, and do one of my own. It’s easier for me this way. Besides, I was dumbfounded how I had many more similarities than differences in that list. Would you mind? I’d, of course, put a link to your post, as well. Not that hundreds are going to my blog–not yet…

  3. Ditto on #86 (hopefully you and I will never pass each other on opposite sides of a road–chances are we’ll both be dizzy!), and ditto on #94–at least for me it’s a strange obsession with Tony Soprano, and it’s hard for me to separate the actor from his character. Go figure!
