100 Club

This is my 100th blog post!!! I thought long and hard about what I should write... to commemorate the 99 ridiculous posts I've made so far... but nothing came to me. I asked D what I should write for my 100th post and he said, "I'd say write about writing blogs... but you wouldn't go for it" and I told him he was right. I'm not going to do that. That's the most ridiculous idea I've ever heard. Boys just don't understand.

So after a little research, I realized that other bloggies in the blogosphere do a "100 things you don't already know about me" post. Uhm... no. Thanks though! I am no where near that deep of a person to have 100 unpublished secrets about myself. For goodness sake, a week ago I posted BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES! I have no blog filter.

So... I'm going to give you 100 things, alright. But in batches of ten. Please don't be distracted by the erratic capitalization of random words. Some words just feel important.

  4. Opening presents
  5. The process of getting back in shape
  6. How quickly my phone dies
  7. Brad Paisley
  8. The sound of someone scratching dry skin
  9. Mustard

10 Favorite Quotes:

  1. "I'm afraid of losing my obscurity. Genuineness only thrives in the dark. Like celery" - Aldoux Huxley
  2. "I didn't know what I wanted to do, but I always knew the woman I wanted to be" - Diane Von Furstenburg

  5. "The best things in life are free. The second best are very expensive" - Coco Chanel
  6. "Shoot for the moon because even if you miss, you'll land among stars" - no idea
  7. "It is a bit embarassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one's life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than 'try to be a little kinder;" - Aldoux Huxley
  8. "Actual happiness always looks pretty squalid in comparison with the over-compensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn't nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand" - Aldoux Huxley
  9. "Happiness is a hard master, particularly other people's happiness" - Aldoux Huxley
  10. "After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much, so you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers" - Veronica Shoffstaff

Thanks to the ten to twenty of you that read my blog on a regular basis and make the time and energy I spend on it seem less whack-o. I really, really do appreciate it! I won't be stopping any time soon. You can't make me!
