Sarah said...

*Pounding fists on old wooden table top* We want the list! We want the list!

2 people you've hooked up with have died? Wow. Now THAT is different...

Nice list...but I have to admit...I think you cheated a smidge with the "Hot List".

pamela said...

Ooh you totally did cheat on a couple. Or maybe I just like writing so much that I made things not similar to the other. Or? Maybe I'm just crazy. Wait.. What?

Sarah said...

I love your list and I love YOU! Muah!

I am also going to make a list. And also cheat. Because 100 things? Eh. I don't want to dig that deep.
