I’ve always wanted to post a “100 Things” post about myself but never seem to have the time to sit down and do it properly. So… I am doing it in three parts and will post bits throughout the week.

5. I like my cream, with a tiny bit of coffee.
6. I’ve never had a true, best friend.

8. I crack my knuckles.
9. I cannot stand it when people talk on their cell phones while using the facilities.

25. I appear to be very organized but really, I am a seething, whirling, mass of confusion.
26. I enjoy doing laundry.
27. I think I’d do well as a stand-up comic.
28. I’ve never been a fan of Botox but lately… it doesn’t sound so bad.
29. I always smell nice. Smelling nice is a priority with me.

31. Respect is a big thing with me.
32. I can eat chili peppers with the best of ’em.
33. I like to shop for others, but hate to shop for myself.
