    48 is very beautiful.

    55 is a hurdle you must over come!

    Go and sing that song in a Mall somewhere, then run away laughing.

    Alright, dude. YOU LOVE THE SMELL OF CIGARETTE SMOKE?! That’s messed.

    I found a left handed wallet the other day. It was DEFINITELY left handed.

    I talk to my pets when everyone’s home, and when we’re at the dog park, and when we have company, and when we’re on a walk….oh yeah, AND when noone’s home!!

    Awesome list!

    Okay, so I know I said this last night, but I’m actually surprised how many of these we have in common.

    Perhaps they are universal constants and our feeble mortal mentalities just clued in.

  5. 5 Okami July 28, 2006 at 1:45 pm

    Oh – I let me know if you would like a little assistance with #90.

  6. 6 Doug Murata July 28, 2006 at 5:14 pm

    I feel the same way about #63.
    Good call on #66!
    Good call on #95!

  7. 7 LMizzle July 28, 2006 at 6:33 pm

    Ultra: 48 isn’t as romantic as you’d think. They’ve actually divorced each other like 3 times, then decided they want to get married! What’s up with my relatives?!

  8. 8 PIE! July 28, 2006 at 7:45 pm

    I love love Canon in D.

    And I remember your writing about your Japanese aunt. In New York, was it?

    Lauren, this was pretty fascinating. The next time I see you I demand to see the Neo Matrix thing.

    And the stork bites.

  9. 9 Doug Murata July 28, 2006 at 11:16 pm

    You’re surrounded by Coke-philes!? Well, now that I think about it, so am I. What’s this world coming to? You have my sympathy.

  10. 10 Okami July 28, 2006 at 11:50 pm

    Count one more Pepsi drinker in the crowd!! Me too.

  11. 11 Blondie August 2, 2006 at 1:24 am

    I’m surrounded by coke philes as well, but that’s because of where I work…and it’s the OTHER coke…

    Everyone wanted to be a veterinarian when they were little. Fortunately for most of them, they wised up before it was too late.
