  • *sigh* Im gonna attempt this on my blog. Dont be suprised if you see my on cam with spots of hair ripped out.

  • It was surprising difficult to do. I read one today that just made me go ugh! It was boring. Every sentence I just typed would have been numbered in her list.. even this one lol

  • Hope this isnt a dumb question Jen, but how did you get this post to appear separate on the list from all the others? BTW stealing this blog idea too ...will give me something to play around with on the weekend. Love the idea.

  • This is a very interesting perfil. Once you published them i think i can comment some of them. The best is the number 53 about "fun only" and "serious only" friends. I think you must mix them.I know that will be hard work... but it worth; Really some items are surprising ex. numbers 24, 31, 76, 84 and 69 (specially this one and i didn't understand it...at light of 97 ); Thanks for the number 34. At last i would like to know how many times you ... (no it isn't what did you think...) changed this post after you have written it at first time. "Melhores saudações" (isn't french ..is portuguese). nothingandall

  • In response to the above.. Thanks. And No I dont enjoy the position 69. I prefer to be able to fully concentrate on what I'm doing. So that means one at a time please lol.

    I've not changed the post at all since I wrote it.. I do need to add a few notes. I did fly for the first time in Sept.

  • You may be right. We mustn't to share the attentions for several things and don't make any right. But that thing i am not so sure, because is terrific ...) lol.

    By Blogger looking4good, at 3:43 PM  

  • Congrats on the weight loss! I had never before tried to touch my nose with my tongue. I can't, I now know, and I'm wondering just how many tried it when they read that!
