100 (plus) posts

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 5:03 pm

Recently I have noticed that several people have reached 100 posts on their blog. I never realized that I hit this milestone until they made note of it on their own blogs. Evidently, there is a ‘100 Things’ pseudo-ritual of some sort related. Well, I’m a little behind then (he he, I wish) so, I sat down and tried to think of 100 interesting things about me. I found 100 things, but I don’t know how interesting they are.

  5. Yeah, what’s the name you don’t like? Or how about this, what name would you prefer to have? 🙂

  6. Good list. I don’t think I’ve ever done that list.

    My second toe is longer than my big toe, too.

    Toe rings are cute. So are ankle bracelets!

  7. Having a second toe bigger than the first toe means you are of Scotch/Irish or other Northern British Isle descent.

    Seriously, I have it and so do my kids and I’m definitely Scotch/Irish. I’ve looked it up before.

  8. I was an English major in college too. I enjoyed all the reading even though having this degree (B.A.) hasn’t helped me out all that much.
    Also, my 2nd toe is longer than my big toe. Hubby says I have “monkey toes.”
