I guess I didn't remember that you hadn't already done a 100 list!

I had no idea lavender was your favorite scent. What the?

I think I knew all the rest of this. But I'm not sure I believe that you are uncoordinated. And seriously -- cold cereal 3 meals a day? I don't even eat it for breakfast that often.

I love your nicknames.

I'm still giggling about Blue's Clues. That must have been a function of sleep deprivation or some such.

#94 makes me smile.
DITTO on #99!

This is a great list Jessie!

I laughed out loud about you not getting Blue's Clues right, that's too funny!

I hate Randy's sneeze so much and was happy to see that you hate Timm's sneeze as well.

It cracks me up that you're afraid of sprouting vegetables.

Lavender is my favorite scent- how did I NOT know this about you?

I think my feet could give yours a run for their money in the beyond hope category, and no that is not bragging- it is sad :( I wish I could wear cozy socks all the time but my feet get way too hot.

And I completely relate to #26, 27, 28, 40, 52(bigtime) 68, 69, 70 and others of course...

And your sprouting vegetable fear still makes me laugh.
