Better get that "no girlfriend is good enough" thing under control or chances are, you'll never have grandchildren. Be happy when your young men are happy. (I have no sons, but have had TWO MOTHER IN LAWS.)

I like sniffing clean laundry--especially sheets off the clothesline. Love it!

Work men in the house are a necessary evil. My other half is a finish carpenter so I've heard both sides.

I think a shaven head would be far less trouble as well... and what's up with chocolate???
Badger said…
I would totally do #19 and #20. Maybe even #21.

#s 33-37: YES for me too.

#40, I am the opposite.

#50, make mine salted. But not double salt. That shit is evil.

if I wrote this list, half of them could just be directly stolen from you.. interesting, eh?
oh, and how do i get a site meter?
tut-tut said…
*** is a bit, hmm . . . well, HOW detailed?

I've never had No. 39.

There's an old John Wayne movie that I believe Castaway pays homage to, in the name of the coconut. I could be wrong, though.
Julie said…
what are you 4 children's book type tattoos? (you left a comment about them on another site)
BabelBabe said…
#38? Well, answer it.
Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Yeah, you gotta get past the "No girl is good enough." I for one will be thrilled to have someone take them off my hands...
aldo love henna dyed hands. H bought me a henna kit years ago for my bday and I never did it - maybe I should dig it out. I also love nose piercings - little itsy bitsy ones - just not on me.
and I'll bet you are not as into spinach pie as that lady at WF yesterday...

i forgot #17...no worries...they are an abomination.

[finally vlooh. your word verifications are always quite taxing]
robiewankenobie said…

okay. i'm done now.
*sits on hands*
Jennifer said…
oh...#24 makes this lurker nervous. i lurk, but don't stalk. I check in often becuase you amuse, entertain and feel like an old friend more than you know.

loved this post.
blackbird said…
- don't be nervous Jennifer...#24 isn't meant to make you scared.
paula said…
I can pop my hip, it freaks people out.

I REFUSE to comment about #22 as I am GREEN with envy.

All this talk of socks and pedicures and my WV is featyw. Hmm.
Jennifer said…
I don't know how anyone can actually LIKE the smell of Play-Doh ?

I like quiet mornings too. It just makes the day all the much better.

I would love to get a henna tattoo! Because I would never want a REAL tattoo.

I will cut your hair for you :) Drop in sometime.. you know where I live ;)
katy said…
But do you like to eat raw tuna? I'm the opposite...it's a texture thing.
Pixie said…
alright I'll say hello then, seeing as you're watching me. I think I miss playdough now my boys are over it.
KitchenKiki said…
Since I'm being watched, I'll say hello.

#15 have you visited A Year in Bread?

#8 me too

#30 I have a friend who henna's my hand or back or foot almost every summer. It is really cool

#35 & #36 Often at the same time

#39 desperately

#46 a perennial favorite. But I haven't made it in years.
