  14. I hate that I have to refer to Vitiligo as "Michael Jackson disease" for people to get it.

101. You are neat.

66. I just ordered some clothes yesterday for myself...not me.

Nice to know you. I'd be hard-pressed to come up with 100 things about me. But I will try...for my 100th post (which is just 4 posts away!)

gone said...

I could be wrong on that "myself" thing. I use what I like to call "auditory grammar," so if it sounds better to me...it's right in my book. So, feel free to correct me if that is the case.

I'm an ass, I know.

John said...

what about your writing? I love to read your stuff.

John said...

I think I am going to have to do this list on my site too

aughra said...

Awh, Bib? That's sweet.

Let's see HNT!!!!

Princess Steph said...

what a great list. I never would have guessed that you are 38, especially after the HNT from a few weeks ago.

I feel you on the love of shoes - its a big problem for me. And now I want more.

You are going to have to give us more details on the wedding (like your dress for instance)

... :(

Girl With An Alibi said...

Thanks Matt!

Jacob, myself thanks you for that correction in grammar and so do me and I.

John - check out my storybook blog. Only one story on there right now. But there will be others.

Aughra, stay tuned for HNT...

Steph- I get the age thing alot. Actually I think buying shoes keeps you young.

afp - why so sad?

The Moviequill said...

did you hear they are doing a big screen version of Flash Gordon now? (BTW my last name is Gordon and I always wanted the nickname Flash..well I did have it once in college but I'm trying to downplay that)

Christine said...

Thank for writing that but I will say that knowing you are 38 just made me feel really bad about how shitty I look. LOL

Girl With An Alibi said...

MQ- no I didn't know that. I must notify my college roommates. We used to get drunk together and watch the old one as we each recited different lines. This could be cause for a reunion!

Christine- don't feel bad hon, not having the John induced stress you have to put up with probably slows my aging process. ;)

Den said...

Wow, I was just messing around and found your page!
Very nice.
If you are interested, go see my discount digital camera related site.
It isnt anything fancy but you might still find something of interest.
