This is my 100th post

And I'm too swamped to even make it a good 'un. (See, Mom and Dad? I do homework!) Instead I will leave you with a survey, which I just stole from Danalee, which she stole from somewhere else.

Also I will tell you that last night for dinner I had a toasted baguette with slabs of warm brie, thick bacon, and cherry tomatoes inside. And oh my gosh it was good.

Ahem. Here is your survey.

THREE NAMES YOU GO BY
1. Stephanie (I don't know why)
2. Tee (to my sweet baby niece)
3. Nemesis

THREE PHYSICAL THINGS YOU LIKE ABOUT YOURSELF
1. I look sexy and vulnerable in pink
2. I can raise one eyebrow to give foolish people the Look of Impending Death
3. I have great calf muscles, which makes people think I'm a runner even though I'm not

THREE PHYSICAL THINGS YOU DON'T LIKE ABOUT YOURSELF
1. My milkmaid shoulders
2. I am so white that you can actually see my veins through my skin
3. My complete lack of abdominal strength--I will probably just slump over one day and be unable to straighten up

THREE PARTS OF YOUR HERITAGE
1. English
2. Irish
3. Southern

THREE THINGS THAT SCARE YOU
1. Spiders
2. The old men on LDS Linkup who try to write me
3. Scary clowns

THREE OF YOUR EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS
1. My keys (turns out to be a problem when I don't have them)
2. My mobile, because I like to think that the world will stop if people can't reach me
3. Four different lip-gloss products, since I lose them all the time

THREE THINGS YOU ARE WEARING RIGHT NOW
1. Jeans
2. A librarian bun
3. A saucy grin

THREE OF YOUR FAVORITE SONGS
1. "At Last" by Etta James
2. "In a Little While" by U2
3. "Hang on Little Tomato" by Pink Martini
(Wait, I just realized they sort of all have the same theme, even though that's not why I picked them. Huh. Betcha Freud would have a field day with that one.)

THREE PHYSICAL THINGS ABOUT THE PREFERRED SEX THAT APPEAL TO YOU
1. Sense of humor
2. Shoulders
3. The accent
(My preferred sex is male, btw.)

THREE THINGS YOU WANT TO DO REALLY BADLY RIGHT NOW
1. Stop studying. (Oh wait, I just did! Hah!)
2. Go out and play.
3. Drink Ghirardelli hot chocolate next to a fire

THREE CAREERS YOU'RE CONSIDERING/YOU'VE CONSIDERED
1. Superpower
2. Librarian
3. Queen of the Universe

THREE PLACES YOU WANT TO GO ON VACATION
1. Paris
2. Prague
3. Anywhere with clear blue water and a beach and people who will brink me the slushy fruit drinks

THREE THINGS YOU WANT TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE
1. Travel all over the world
2. Become the scary old lady on the porch who yells at the neighborhood kids
3. Not go sky-diving

THREE WAYS THAT YOU ARE STEREOTYPICALLY A GIRL
1. I cry at commercials sometimes.
2. I have a princess canopy bed with pink ribbons and flowers and streamers all over it
3. Wait, what do you even mean by that question? Are you saying that it's acceptable to refer to women as "girls"? What kind of sexist pig are you, huh?

THREE KID'S NAMES YOU LIKE
There is no way on this green earth I would tell the Internet that, because every time I so much as think of a name I like, it shoots to the Top 20 list. So I'm just keeping that to myself, you nasty bunch of name poachers. You know who you are, and I hope your kids have perpetually runny noses and that they will wear too-small sweatpants constantly just to make you look like bad parents.

I like the answers. There werent really any food questions on there though. I like ones with food questions. But maybe that's because I'm hungry and I know there's a stash of halloween candy in the closet.

It sounds like, perhaps, you have been brunk too many already.

Aside from your hilariously witty answers, which do deserve loads of credit, did you ever consider the idea you just might have "issues"?

(not to say that I don't...)

But before I forget to pass on the message, an Anonymous Scary Man wanted me to tell you that the world is out to get you.

(by the way, the reason I can say these things to you is because it's just a joke, and we all know that you don't really have issues. The reason you can't tease me back about these things is because it probably wouldn't be a joke, and we all know that I probably really do have issues. . .I'll have to speak with Freud about that one though.)

True spitfire.

There are only two types of people:

Those who are paranoid.

Those who don't have all the facts...

Stupid

Wise move on the names. Too many baby name thieves out there waiting for their chance.

I really want to see prague one day. All those centuries of architecture that never got bombed by anyone...wonderful.

I can also do the Impending Doom eyebrow. Which became quite fashionable when The Rock came to pro wrestling. :)

Ghirardelli makes hot chocolate now?! Have I been living in a cave or under a rock? I must have some posthaste!

Congratulations on the 100th! You don't cry over beer commercials do you?

I have the kid name problem too. Emily, Isabella, Jacob - all former favorites of mine until every 3rd child was named Emily Isabella, and her brother named Jacob. Grrr.

Happy 100th!! I can't wait for 100 more...in fact, try to do 100 posts in 2 months time....that sounds good. Forget classes and a social life....who needs those?

I cannot do the Eyebrow of Doom. But I can do the Cross Eyes of Insanity and the Fish Lips of Hilarity...you're jealous, I know.

Nemesis,

Congrats on 100! Also woman, you refer people to my blog on what has to be my dumbest post ever?! Are you for me or against me?! Seriously, you steal it then out do me, however I am 100% giddy with delight that you'd find anything worthy of stealing from my madness.

Last December I went to a conference in Chicago and decided they call the main drag the Magnificent Mile because there is a Ghirardelli store that of course sells ...wait for it...HOT MOCOLATE! I had a big steaming, creamy, chocolaty, mug EVERY day I was there. Sigh... I have determined the only two decent facts about winter are the ability to gorge on hot mocolate and not having to shave the legs. TMI? Maybe, but it's the truth.

Okay, I started laughing at the old lady on the porch yelling at neighborhood kids thing. That's an admirable goal.

And congrats on your 100th. That's quite a milestone.

I also want to add my congrats on your 100th post. I have enjoyed each and every one. You are my hero, Nemesis!!!! If only I could be you. :)
