    I love the list. Thank you for taking the time to type it up!
    Michelle :)

  3. We have a lot in common. My leg hair is growing as we speak...heeheehee.

    And you can write a book--I did for NaNoWriMo 2005, but I never want to see it edited or published (even though I liked it; that one was for me alone).

    Love your last meal--yum.

  4. Hey poppy & mei's mumma. Nice to see you.

    Michelle - yeah to the leg heair! LOL

    Lisa - we should start a club for this leg hair malarky.
    How great that you wrote a book just for yourself. I might do it one day, after the wildflower blossoms.

    DIY Dad pointed out that out of 100 things, 6 include books. *blush*

  5. From your list we might be sisters...seems we have much in posted on my blog and I had to come and "meet" you...SO, nice to meet you Mon...though I use Ragamuffin as I blog, I'm Jen. I think I might have to do a list of my own!

  6. Wonderful list. And reading through this I see some spooky parallels with what would be on my list if I did one.

    You do spreadsheets for your books??!

    I bow down before you in reverence and awe. You really meant it when you said you're into books. Hehe.

  7. Jen - hey, welcome. Pop in again.

    Docwitch - No, no reverence, just pity me.

  8. Ditto on the leg hair. I also love books and your last dinner.

  9. we have loads in common. i don't remember the numbers because unlike yours my memory is not topnotch. but we have more in common than not.

  10. Yay on the leg hair Lisa! lol

    ladybug-zen - I'm not surprised that we do, reading your blog. :)

  11. 53. My level of skepticism is very high.

    you played great with words. you believe in the unseen and read the tarot. do you know what it means skepticism?
