    I love your list, what a lovely way to introduce yourself 🙂


    I’m following your blog 🙂

    #66 is just a tad short. You’ve also seen goats (heck, saw your first, second & third goat be born when you were only a few weeks old), and horses, though maybe not the actual being born part, cause horses are sneaky like that, but certainly got there while they were still all wet. And wolves, too.

    And wasn’t there a certain Toulouse Goose that just hated everyone but especially you, and used to chase you around all the time? I think you saw him hatch, too.

    Oh, and re. #24, I’m pretty sure the vampire thing/covered neck is hereditary. Your sis (and I) suffer from this as well. Though, I’m pretty sure your uncle had something to do with it, for me at least.

    The ear dwelling spiders, well, that’s just plain weird. Though I bet that started when we lived in Ohio in the woods…

    Excellent way to tell people about yourself without the regular boring, “Hi, I’m 26 and I’m a blah blah blah”.

    Thoroughly enjoyed reading all 101 points. 🙂 And I agree with and can identify with many of them. Especially the chinese food one.

    Liked reading about your time in Kosovo as I’m currently stationed here. Base is a little smaller than it was then. WLC isn’t quite the same either, but hey, it’s better than stateside.
