Oooh, love this. I will be stealing this for sure. And boring you are not ... had hives? Been stuck in an elevator? Written a fan letter? Hmmm, there must be some stories behind these...

Krystyn said...

I might have to steal this one, too!

amanda said...

omg how fun is this??

and now i must go back and reread your much to take in!! far, far, far from boring!!

duchess said...

Great idea! You've done a lot of interesting things - mine would be completely boring.

Are you sure you're from NC & never had fried green tomatoes??

Wendi said...

Steal away girls.
Yes...there are stories.
I *may* share them one day.

I do live in NC.
I do love tomatoes.
I just don't think I have ever eaten them green and fried.
I *have* watched the movie atleast a dozen times.
Does that count?

LaskiGal said...

Oooohhhh. I may need to steal as well . . .

SOME of what we have in common:
4, 10, jealous of 12, 29, 32 (and I wasn't even drunk!), 33 (and to catch the attention of a cute guy I liked--so lame), 47 (OCD anyone?), 57 (would love to do this!), 84 (high school track and field), 92 (pre-req as an English teacher), 189, 190 (as a result of teaching senior high school students--it was the end of the year--I was going crazy). So many more I could add!!!

Kristen said...

That's it!

We are getting together so that we can enjoy a huge YUMMY plate of Sushi!!! Yummy, seriously! ;)

I totally thought this was so much fun, and so NOT boring! Loved it! Might steal soon!!

Stephanie said...

Okay, this may have to be a future post on mine! How neat! I definitely learned more about you! I like it!!

Grammy Staffy said...

O.K. I am totally behind giving back my awards and answering tags... but I have copied this over to Word and plan to get to it.

I was going to make today "Makeup Monday" and give out overdue awards but after Sunday dinner last night my grandchildren wanted to stay with us for a couple of days. Between playing in the pool, playing games, having tea parties and eating (they are hungry every 30 min.)I haven't been able to get more than a few min. on the computer today. .... so...I guess that I will have "award Wed." Keep in touch. I'm not ignoring you sweet people that have sent me blog love.

Have a good day. Love ya

Marla said...

Boring... hardly, that would be nothing on the list... just did it for a post for tomorrow, i'd more than I thought...

Fun activity, only is there a shorter version? I need one of these in "sections" to complete. My A.D.D. won't let me get through it in one sitting.

Can't believe July is here already!


Sue said...

This is cool. I have done many of the things you have done too! Although, I can't say I carved anything out of soap? What the ?
Probably will wind up borrowing this in the near future!

Susan said...

Very fun! I copied it and posted to my blog today. I was actually suprised at the memories it brought back as I went through the list. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

I love this idea!! I'm with McMommy. Who was the fan letter to??

I wrote one to Rider Strong (Corey's best friend Shawn on Boy Meets World) when I was 14. I loved him...and Jonathan Taylor Thomas from Home Improvement. I put stickers ALL over the envelope. I pictured him looking at a huge pile of letters and choosing it, and only it, to read amongst the sea of girls.

Sadly, I received a copied "signed" picture of him a few weeks later and never heard from the jerk. If he could see me now, right??! :) Psssh.
