Great list!!! I love it,especially #15!! I agree! I was so happy to have my gallbladder removed, but it was the best diet before I did! LOL! I lost an average of 9lbs every 5 days! I know you know what I'm talking about. The Stand is a great book. My dad cried when he found out I pregnant with my first, I didnt know, he was at work. It just about killed me when I found out. But I didnt get married until I was 8 months pregnant with my 2nd. Figured I might as well get married, since I kept having babies! HA!
There are so many comments I could make, but there is so little time.
However, this is a GREAT list!
Some excellent facts here; they reveal so many tiny details that are fascinating.
Wow we have a lot in common! I love everything 80's too! I saw the MC Hammer tour w/Vanilla Ice. I love scrapbooking. I am in the same crappy battle with my weight (ugh). My hair was stick straight growing up and somewhere in my teens it went poodle curly. I could go on, but this is your blog not mine, LOL!
Let me know when you're getting you belly button pierced- I'm in!
That could just as well be my very own list. Except for the sisters thing. And belly-button piercing. But the rest...oh yeah. :)
Great list! I love Wendy's fries dipped in my Frosty! My husband thinks it is just wrong.
Gosh, we have A LOT in common! I counted (I'm a dork like that) and there's at least 20 things we have in common. If you love dogs and tearjerker movies, you should watch "My Dog Skip" if you haven't seen it already. I cried for 2 hours after that one. :)
I love your list! So many interesting things.
I'm from dana-elayne.diaryland.com and I loved your list! :) My mom had a college freshman, a high school freshman, and a kindergartener! It was insane, but fun!
Cool List man...rawk on...
Hello my name is Denise & I was actually looking for blog on BB All Stars when I stumbled into your blog... found you by mistake I guess you could say. I thought we had so much in common that I had to write a response. I tend to get long winded so I apologize for this ahead of time. I noticed your last post was in May so I'm not sure you even read this thing anymore but here it goes...We have a lot in common girl, starting with our loction in Indy. I was not however born and raised here... I'm from a few places. I also am "Livin' in the 80's" and have been told so many times by my co-workers. The top 100 was great and it sometimes felt like I was reading what could have been my own... we have about a 50% match on our lives. Yes, I'm anal like that and actually counted them...it's too funny, right down to our jobs, I also have an associates degree in MA. In case your bored and want to compare and contrast these are the #'s of your top 100 that would also be mine (if I had a top 100) never blogged before, like I said I just stumbled in here...but it looks addicting though. Here it goes - 4,7,9,17,18 ( only my hair started curly and went straight)23,24,28 (got married in 91' so that's what? 16 yrs, I lost count LOL), 29,30,35,43,48,50,54,55,56,57,58,60,62(Kmart was my 2nd job),63,66,74,75,77,80,81,85,86,87,88,92,94,95,97,99 (I lived in Orlando for awhile so it was easy for me to visit Disney),104 (I hated shrimp forever because of the texture),107,108,109,111 (I'm still a flirt though!!),113,114,117,118,124,126,
127,128,129 (just 2 kids though 10 yrs apart)and 137. So if you got through this message and actually compared the things in common you should email me. Denisew1972@yahoo.com I have no blog or homepage and I'm terrible at checking my email daily - I don't know where you find the time to do it... I was actually looking for who won the Head of household competion for Big Brother and thought I might find it in a blog somewhere. Ended up finding out on CBS in the chat room, duh. Should have tried that first...Loved how you describe 'Date Night' it's the same in this house- anything that doesn't involve children count's as a date... I can totally relate!!! Anyway, I've taken up too much space already, sorry- just had to comment! Later ~Nisey~
What a great list!
And I think it gives quite a bit of insight.
Hey....it's Michelle and I found your blog by accident, but I'm so happy I did. It was uncanny reading your list, because I knew I liked ya, but I had no idea how much we have in common....probably a third of the list....weird...nice style on your blog!!! Very fun to read!!!
Item No. 49....I used to be the tall slender brother-in-law. Now, I'm just one of the "Belly Brothers" and I don't like that either.
Wow great list, there were a few I could relate too.
So glad I stumbled and found your blog.
Wow What a great list. We have a lot in common. Where in Indiana are you from?
