I would love to know some things about you. Feel free to use your age as the number of things. If I've tagged you please comply only if you feel like it!



  1. You had me at #8 and #9. I think I love you:)

    Hugs and Mocha,

  2. Love the list! I'll definitely comply! My next post will be my 100th... maybe I can come up with 100 things about me? Or that might be too long (and boring to read!) Maybe I'll just stick to my age and shoot for 24. :)
    I especially like #s 14-15. Oh.. and 13!! My dog definitely has my heart.

  3. Very cool. I will try this too. ;) I am happy you are so fulfilled with life!

  4. Cool! I'll do that this morning. BTW, love the fishing pic!

  5. What a fabulous list! This looks like something that I would like to give a try too!

  6. I'm sorry to hear about the sleep! (Though maybe you don't need more than that.) I wish I were in my 20s (so my list would be shorter) but I'll go for it; maybe Fri. .have to set a reminder for myself!

    Yep, gettin' old.

  7. It was so nice to learn more about you! I especially like #14. I like #37 - it would be wonderful if everyone could get along in this world. Thank you for tagging me. I'll start getting my list ready:)

  8. I agree with the others - very cool to learn more about you :)

    I'll hit you back with a list of my own... I'll say tomorrow. I'll probably spend the day jotting down random thoughts at work.

  9. I love posts like this! My 100th post is coming up on Friday and I'm doing 100 things about me! If you are interested, you should stop by. You'll find out more than you would ever want to know!

    And I hate my feet!
    And I wish I could make a living as a writer.
    And I love spring too.

    The reason I love these lists is that you can always find at least one thing you have in common with someone. What a great way to build relationships!

    And happy birthday.

  10. Thanks for the tag, Kim. Haven't done a meme for ages so might take you up on this one - have a paranormal post first.

    38 in a few weeks. I keep thinking I'm 29, but then i wake up and realise I'm 39!

  11. Great list!

    One of my favorite body parts is my feet too. My birthday is coming up, maybe I'll do this list as a post for that day. :-)

  12. Great list! It so nice to get to know a little about you. I've watched Law and Order since the 90's too. I love those marathons. I also try to be a good listener in conversations but don't always suceed.

  13. I love this......#29? So true, so true (unless you are my big bro who shot me in the stomach with a pellet gun......having a hard time with that one and it was almost 40 years ago, lol).

    Steady On
