100 Things (for the new year)

"I do feel compelled to steal everything else I see."

Does that make you a supressed kleptomaniac? ;)

I was thinking of making a similar list. I'll get working on it now because I really should be studying for an exam.

And yes, I read the whole list, now I know you 100 points more!

I'm still not on the sidebar... and thinking of ways to finalize your fiery death.

Abigail . . . I did read them ALL . . . you can quiz me at home if you don't believe me!
p.s. you make me want to blog even though I would not rock it like you do

Hi - I'm a recent lurker... Cousin of the lovely Heather Anne...

I laughed out loud when I read "HOLD THE PHONES she has low washer fluid". Jersey the Jetta also yells when she has low washer fluid.

yeah. i like you.

Hey, I read your complete list. So, what do I win? Or is it one of those "the journey is the destination" deals? Or simply false advertising? Although, can it be considered advertising or enticement since it follows rather than precedes the list?
