  1. I cry about dumb things too... I'm not convinced that's a totally bad thing, at least it gets emotions out and they don't get bottled up!

    That's so funny that you kept your speeding ticket a secret! How do you talk yourself out of keeping that secret for 10 years?

    Good luck at the dentist, I hope it isn't too traumatic!

  2. Nice to "meet" you! Good luck at the dentist, I too am not a huge fan of them. We have a lot in common.

  3. Trac, I love your " you list!"

  7. caramel? love it too.
    sweet tea - hello! would bathe in it if i could.

  8. I hate spiders and needles too.
    I hate that every time I turn the tv on they are showing someone getting a H1N1 shot! I. do. not. want. to. see. that!

    Spiders make me freeze...I can' even kill them.
    I think they are aliens.

    GO HOGS!

  12. that was a fabulous list! and my mom is one of my besties too...she drives me nuts but i'd be lost without her!

  13. I love red and black too....which is good because my college colors are red and black. My middle name is Michelle. I was born in Alaska and lived in Hawaii, camped in the Florida Keys...lived in California, been to the lowest and highest point of Texas and lived in Virginia and now live in Maryland. So, have you guessed, the only corner of the U.S. I haven't been to is Maine.
