  1. Ditto to what Ames said! It’s really interesting to read posts like these. Already, I feel like I know you a little better. 🙂

    I have to agree on your favourite movie also. I love Sweet Home Alabama. It’s one of my favourites also. Oh, and about winning a shopping spree in a bookstore? I was JUST wishing about that today while I was book shopping with my brothers girlfriend. *sigh* If only, huh?

  2. I loved reading the list!
    #16 – I totally agree and I hate when they do it in restaurants too.
    #28 – YES
    #36 – me too
    #55 I want to do that too
    #61 – how is that possible???
    #75 – yep
    #80 – ME TOO!

    I love these posts. I think they’re easy. I could do 100 more in about 3 minutes.

  3. I got sick on cheesies once when I was little, after eating a big spagetti supper – so imagine that. I’ve never been able to eat cheese since. But for some odd reason it doesn’t bother me to have small bits on pizza.

    LOL – once I got going it was a bit easier. And when I was finished I was doing stuff around the house and kept thinking of more.

  4. Very interesting list! I like reading these too. It’s always fun to see what people say. And it’s neat the things you’ll learn. 🙂

  5. LOL! Great list! Verra good. I don’t like cheese either. I thought I was the only one. LOL

    Sweet Home Alabama is such a great movie. Josh Lucas is so hot! I might have to dedicate a post to him. LOL

  6. Wow, this was a great read, I feel like I KNOW you now, Valeen and I’m a flirt too and I can be a bitch too…sometimes, I tried pot once too and I didn’t do it right cause I didn’t feel anything…LOL. I too, put a lot of stock in romance novels, that’s probably why I’m still single.

    I too, think it’s very interesting to read these kinds of post, it’s cool to read something you didnt know about the person…I like it!

  7. I’m allergic to pot. Nothing like trying it out in high school and ending up in the emergency room afterwards, eh? LOL
