100 Things I Like

KT shared with us, her faithful readers, her 100 Likes the other day. I thought that it was a great idea, so I'm totally copying her. I also found out that Heeland Lass did so as well. The idea is catching on!

100 Things I Like

Rules: Make a list of 100 things you like in no particular order. Avoid the obvious (significant other, cake...) and be completely honest with yourself. If you try to think of things that you are curious about and inspired by, you'll end up discovering a lot about yourself and in doing so developing a sort of bank of your interests and ideas.

For the record, I don't agree with the cake issue as I don't actually really like cake, except pound cake, but there you have it.

freckles and a redhead? You must be Irish!

Canadian Money is pretty badass. There is magical properties in the coloured ink.

thanks for coming over to opera-land! (paste)re: Danielle Charbonneau: LOL - I do a great impersonaton of her - she just sounds so damn snooty - you would think she would work that French Canadian accent towards the sexy end of the spectrum.
But hey, don't give up on WHFR - classical from 2AM-10AM 7 days a week, and my show 10AM-1PM on tuesdays. :)

and hey, I looked at your profile - The Eight is one of the best books EVER.

Thanks for being my first vote. I'm in the lead now by ONE point. I'm hanging on a precarious thread..But holding strong. haha

I liked your list, I wish I was inspired enough to make my own.. but the problem is that I've read so many other versions..that I can't think of my OWN happy things anymore. I might have to wait a few days to clear my head before I attempt it.

Ooo .. I have never been sure what staple removers are for, they are not that hard to remove without one..still whatever turns you on :)

I think I would like your freckles too ;)

Cole: Just possibly. ;-) I like the loonies and toonies best. So practical.

whfropera: Wish I didn't have to work during the day so I could listen to your show.

Clarity: I shall will it that you win. ;-)

Dipper: If you were a girl and cared about your fingernails, you'd understand the love of staple removers.

Great list. I have actually played Pooh sticks on the actual Pooh sticks bridge (as drawn by Shepherd). My Dad won, of course.

cool. i love lists. having OCD i make lists everyday, mostly check lists... things i have to check and then check off the list. making a list of things i rather enjoy instead of necessity is much more fun, but takes a little more effort. -kez
