I just wanted to resurrect an old blog entry to regenerate interest in doing the list thing. My 100 things about me you didn't know was typed in March 2005. Others were doing the list thing and it was fun trying to come up with 100 things.

Consider this a challange to you to make your own list. :wink:

Well, since I couldn't figure out how to republish my original list, I did a cut and paste.

29) I am very much pro life!!!!!

30) I majored in music and played piano in college.

31) in high school I was considered by most to be the most musically inclined and the 'top dog' but when I got into college I had a rude awakening, I was no longer the top but was surrounded by many other great musicians and was just another fish in the pond so my ego was shattered.

60) I used to be a pretty good singer..alto Now, I can't carry a tune in a bucket. Guess it's true, if you don't use it, you lose it. This is a result of the stroke and smoking, so it's half my own fault.

73)one of my cats has claimed my computer printer has his perch..so when I want to print something out, I have to lift his 20 pound body off the printer, hold his attention till the item is printed and then let him go.

74) the other cat likes to lay beside the food dish and reaches into the bowl for a crunchy and pulls it out onto the floor beside him to eat it, it's too much work to stand over the dish to eat

Janice, no sense in me doing the "100 things..." list. There aren't 100 interesting things about me.

 

Loved your list though.

 

Sue.

Well, make a list of 50 or 20 or however many you can come up with. You might be surprised if you just take a few minutes. lol
