  66. I am really curious about religions other than mine.
  67. I am poison to electronic appliances. ESPECIALLY ones for which I have purchased extended warranties that have just run out.
  68. I always try to make some goofy face in pictures. Everyone has dumb pictures of people smiling! My best friend’s mom threatened my life over this when I was a bridesmaid in her daughter’s wedding.
  69. I love traveling. I once went on vacation alone for a month in Switzerland just because I thought it would be awesome. Having a family in the airline industry doesn’t hurt when loneliness kicks in, either.
  70. I went to Vanderbilt University because it was the best college I got into. I got scholarships to 2 other schools, but their only majors were Being a Cowboy and Beating Up Gays, so I turned them down.
  71. I sometimes sleep in the “butterfly” position. That’s touching the palms of your feet and then laying your head on top of them. My friend’s mom saw me like this at a slumber party and asked me if she should call the hospital.
  72. I am a cat person, but dogs are okay, too. Especially ones that look like puffs.
  73. I have no qualms with utilizing walkthroughs and strategy guides of video games. I bought this game to relax, pal, not to get stuck in the whale’s mouth for all eternity because I never got the feather to tickle its uvula and sneeze me out.
  74. I like Guiness even though it tastes like a loaf of bread.
  75. I don’t like going to doctors. Not because I’m afraid of pain, because they’re mean to me. In my life, I have had a dentist who yelled at me for having a cavity (I was 25), an optometrist who asked me if I just wanted to get glasses because all the other kids had them, and a gynecologist who told me I probably had cancer from radiation poisoning. (I don’t; she got the dates of Chernobyl wrong…and the country.)
  76. When I was little, I didn’t want to be a ballerina or an astronaut. I wanted to be the CEO of NBC.
  77. I can be pretty lazy. Not with life goals or stuff like that. With things like rolling myself around my house on my computer chair because I don’t feel like getting up.
  78. I expect honesty from others, and I am honest to others. To a fault.
  79. I am a pack rat, and I cannot throw away anything from my childhood because I don’t want it to be sad.
  80. I got to meet Chuck Palahniuk, one of my favorite authors, a couple years back, and it was the coolest thing ever. He can make people pass out by reading to them!
  81. Anyone who meets me after only knowing me online informs me that I’m not as big of a bitch as they thought I would be.
  82. When I was little, I thought everyone was a robot but me. Then I realized I had never seen the inside of myself either…DUN DUN DUNNNNNNN!
  83. I should really be on the show “What Not to Wear.” Seriously. You should see the things I choose to leave the house in.
  84. I love Alton Brown, but I sort of wish Rachel Ray would fall on a cheese grater.
  85. I am not great with keeping in touch with old friends, but I try.
  86. When I was younger (and before “The Truman Show”), I thought my entire life was being secretly taped as a sitcom, and I made it a point never to leave a room without making a joke, so they could take a commercial break while I was gone.
  87. My favorite meal will always be grilled cheese with fries, pickles on the side, and a diet coke with a lemon. Yes, I am 10 years old.
  88. I used to swear a lot (see archives/old pictures of me). I don’t so much anymore. Sometimes, but not so much.
  89. I laugh at really inopportune times. Like when someone says something really mean that they meant to be serious.
  90. The only time I really punched someone in the face was in 6th grade, after he told me I had cute puppy dog eyes.
  91. I love really spicy food. My friends once made fun of me while eating sushi and wasabi because tears were streaming down my face, and I was sniffling as I told them how great it tasted.
  92. I’m moderately okay at speaking in accents.
  93. When I like something, I get obsessed. Like buy all books, DVDs, calendars, tchotchkes, and set it as my desktop wallpaper obsessed.
  94. I have been an extra in two movies! A made-for-tv movie starring Christopher Reeve and Judd Apatow’s movie “Funny People.”
  95. I grind my teeth in my sleep, and people in other rooms have wondered how I have any teeth left.
  96. I’m really not as egotistical as this list makes me out to be.
  97. I need
  98. four
  99. more
