Yippee 100!!

OK, so this is actually my 101th post, but:

  1. I just couldn't pass up Wordless Wednesday... because:
  2. it took me a while to be able to get some good pics of that sumac! :)
  3. I don't think I can think of 100 things about me! ;) (I'm just wasting some numbers here)
  4. I don't think I even know 100 things about me.
  5. OK, I'm way too obsessed with this blogging thing
  6. And don't even get me started on the tweeting thing
  7. Really, I have way too many blogs
  8. And sadly, most of them are horribly neglected ;)
  9. Really, 3 of them I manage to post about once a month to
  10. I just did a monthly posting about my disappointment in "America's Got Talent" on one of them
  11. I started a blog with my two sisters, who apparently actually have lives ;) as I'm the only one who's posted to it (very infrequently)
  12. The other blog I have associated with this email I had just started and posted once before:
  13. getting a part time teaching job at a local community college.
  14. I started it because I absolutely adore memoir and totally aspire to write one someday :)
  15. Someday will probably take a long time to get here ;)
  16. And I'm lucky to post once a week/2 weeks on my family/friends update blog. (which I won't give you the url to in case you're a horrible stalker) ;)
  17. I also love to crochet, when I'm not obsessively reading other blogs or posting or tweeting.
  18. Someday I plan on sewing
  19. See #15
  20. Really, I bought a machine and fabric almost two years ago
  21. I've sewn about 3 things since
  22. How many things do I plan on sewing?
  23. Millions.
  24. Someday
  25. See #15 again.
  26. Somebody's been googling me
  27. I hope it's not one of my students
  28. 'Cause they happened upon this blog, not my family/friends blog which has my name all over it
  29. I only had something with my name on it here once
  30. And I took it down once I got googled
  31. But it still shows up under a google search
  32. Grrrr
  33. It probably was one of my students
  34. they were probably my new subscriber that day
  35. they'll use something here for blackmail for a good grade ;)
  36. My husband is more comuter savvy than I
  37. He will find out who googled me
  38. then I will google them
  39. I just like using all the forms of "google"
  40. Crap, I'm not even to 50 yet!
  41. Oops, I just said crap, so I will probably get a PG-13 rating on my blog
  42. Seriously, I've never used a swear word here (that I can recall) but the word "poop" makes me rated PG instead of G.
  43. When I'm not blogging, I'm swearing all the time just to make up for all the swear words I don't use here.
  44. I was hoping to get this post done before nap time was over.
  45. Didn't happen.
  46. I'll be lucky to make it to #50 before all hell breaks loose.
  47. We live in the vacation/fishing/hunting capital of Wisconsin
  48. I saw three bear cubs running across the street within spitting distance of our house the other day!
  49. I'm addicted to Hazelnut coffee.
  50. I'd love to have a Hazelnut Late
  51. But there are no coffee places around here
  52. We live in a town with a population under 100!
  53. The closest grocery store is 25 miles away.
  54. The closest Wal-Mart is 35 miles away.
  55. If I want to do any *real* shopping I would have to drive at least 1 1/2 hours, if not 2.
  56. I have to order ink cartridges online
  57. We had to drive an hour to get a toddler swing last summer
  58. We drove an hour last weekend so I could get some fancy schmancy yarn :)
  59. I spent too much on fancy yarn
  60. I feel a little remorse
  61. But then I've never actually bought any fancy yarn before
  62. It wasn't really that expensive
  63. Nor was it all that fancy
  64. But it was wool and alpaca blends, which I've heard are really nice to work with
  65. I bought them to start making x-mas gifts
  66. Can't decide what I'm going to make this year
  67. Last year I made all the nieces and nephews hats
  68. And coffee cozy/coaster sets for the adults
  69. I might just make hats again, but different ones
  70. hats are easy and fun and quick
  71. And did I mention that we have tons of nieces and nephews?
  72. We had a new addition this week! One of our nieces had a baby girl on Monday!
  73. I crocheted her baby booties, hat, pants and a nursing reminder
  74. I keep meaning to crochet up a bunch of nursing reminders and sell them on Etsy
  75. See #15
  76. I also meant to get her the baby gifts before she had the baby
  77. I'm lazy
  78. I got them in the mail yesterday
  79. But I did send them priority
  80. the dog just came out chewing on a q-tip from the bathroom garbage. ewww. stupid dog.
  81. I'm just reaching now ;)
  82. Shrek will only keep the kids entertained for about 10 more minutes
  83. I've been working on this post off and on for a couple of hours now
  84. If any of you are still reading, sorry for the major lameness ;)
  85. I hate housework. But who doesn't?
  86. But I'm lazy and hate housework
  87. That's just not a good combination at all
  88. I'm completely addicted to Pearl Jam
  89. And the Chili Peppers
  90. And the Foo Fighters
  91. And oddly the Dixie Chicks
  92. I hate country music
  93. I love reading,
  94. But I'm too addicted to the computer
  95. Reading blogs counts as reading right?
  96. 'Cause I think I read like about 90 or something these days
  97. D wants some donkey crackers
  98. at least he's not asking for damn crackers (that's what he calls graham crackers)
  99. I've got goldfish mashed in my carpet again
  100. Shrek attention gave out just in time ;)

Congrats again! I didn't know that was a 100 post thing to do. I probably just complained on my 100 post.

I removed my name from my blog too - I feared nosy fellow students would google me and find my blog and realize all I did was complain.

I realized my co-worker was googling me. I wasn't sure why. Everything out there that you can find via google is what she already knows about me. I asked her. She said I told her too.

Am I that narcissistic? Maybe I just am.

Oh! And I too want to sew, and I too have a machine and patterns and supplies, and I made a bag and it took me forever and I never tried make something else.

In otherwords, I understand #15. : )

(Our cat likes to take q-tips out of the trash too.)

I totally missed my 100th a few weeks ago, but heck, I missed WW too. I wish someone had mentioned Wednesday to me! I completely skipped Wed. and not just in blog land. I thought it was Friday all day.
