This might be the best 100-facts list I have ever read in my life. I could comment on probably 20 different things you said, but I just want to ask: Why did you think your mom was Rosanne? (duck duck goose)

jeneypeney - March 9, 2010

Haha! Well they actually looked pretty similar in the 80s (curly dark hair, big build) and were both extremely outspoken and loud.

So apparently my child mindset thought they were the same people 🙂

2. cari - March 17, 2010

i think that i’ve decided that i like you.

it took me (obviously) years to remember that you friended me on 20sb, shows how much i go there, right? so i thought i’d check you out and see what you had to say. duck.

this is the probably the most awesome 100 things about me list ever. it’s almost inspired me to write one of my own. i’m sure i’ll never get around to it, but i’m inspired. duck.

to be honest, however, after reading this, i’m slightly self-conscious about you reading my blog. but then again, i’m slightly self-conscious of anyone starting to read my blog. but then i figure it’s totally possible that you’ve already read part of it. or you just saw that we’re both from fargo and added me. either way. i just thought i’d share that with you. goose.

this is sort of an epic comment, but i didn’t want to leave something lame like just duck duck goose. and by the way, it’s duck duck grey duck. 😛 haha.

jeneypeney - March 19, 2010

You have no reason to be self conscious about your blog… The only bit of advice I would give you is to break up your paragraphs more. Easier on the eyes 😉

Otherwise I totally like you too. And your blog. And your epic comment. And the fact that you live in Fargo.

Let’s be friends! 😀
