  1. That was really good! I learned some things (good things) I did not know.

    Can I huff your playdoh?

  2. You can huff my play dough if you will finally apply to the Amazing Race with me.

  3. Amazing work, and I found it even without a link. I am impressed with your openness and honesty. Amazingly I found 25 things we have in common and that many completely opposite. Interesting.

  4. Guess what Princess of Everything?
    If you do a Goggle search for Princess of Everything---you are listed number #1. I never knew anyone of such "status". It is like knowing Royalty right along with Princess Diana! Now you can list 101 things about yourself.

  5. I love Sonic ice, too. It's the best ice anywhere. And you like Diet Coke with Lime, too? It's the best! If you take a cup of Sonic ice home then add a can of Diet Coke Lime to the ice, it's perfect. I'll make you one when you come over, ok?

  6. Great list.
    I agree about the raisins and onions. Raisins and brocolli are much better =o)
