100. My favorite t.v. show is "The Amazing Race" and if hubby and I could, we would be there.


Paula said...

okay--so you and I have some important similarities, like a love for the gospel, but you're the only other person I've heard admit that they HAVE to clean their ears with a Q-tip as soon as they get out of the shower. It drives me crazy if I don't!

Jamie Dawn said...

My hubby uses NINE Q-tips after every shower. I am not kidding. He has some ritual that involves ears, belly button, nostrils... It's a nightmare!

Happy New Year!

You say: "I wish I could read music but don't for the same reason. My close friend wants to teach me but I'm resistant."

Maybe you should check out:

How To Read Music Without Reading Music.

This gives you a whole other, simple, down-to-earth perspective that your close friend may not know about yet.

Fred said...

Great list.

You can have my trampoline. Just give me your address, and I'll mail it. :) It's just sitting in the yard annoying the lawn guy who has to move it every week.

And, there's no other way than barefoot.

Happy New Year!

Anne said...

Paula - If I see that we're running out of Q-tips are start to panic.

Jamie Dawn - nine? I only use one per ear. How many is that? Oh wait, two.

Susie - Okay, I'm waiting.

liypoifm - Thanks for the tip. I'll head over to check it out.

Fred - I'm afraid it would annoy OUR lawn guy too - Hubby.

Happy New Year everyone!!!

Chocolate rocks.
your hair looks weaved, but i think it’s pretty,
i don’t polish my nails either, it is a complete waste of time, but i like my toenails polished, i just cant get to them very well anymore.

if you had ten acres, would you run naked around it? if you get big enough lumps, you could have lots of shade.

i like to bake too but rarely do it

what is your first name?
no comment on swingers,

some kids have stinky heads. like all of the friends of my son. what is with these parents, why don't they make sure their kids wash their dang heads?

i can’t stand clutter either, but from the looks of our pic’s, we are both sucking at this.

i will debate religion too, but avoid it because it makes my blood pressure rise,

i miss my 4 wheeler,

i wish i had a house IN a lake,

i’m a huge pessimist. but i wish you would not have admitted you are huge. i don’t like life, goes with the negativism. i complain a lot, get it from my dad too,

i love paper, and pens. if you saw how much of these two items i own, you would be disgusted with me,

i like to sing, but never do it in public, i miss the stage too, everytime i try to step onto it. haha.

i want an all organic farm, and make my own electricity, and clothing from homespun wool.

You would probably have more friends if you would please get in the shower, for the love of pete.

i like to scrapbook, but have never done it,

me too on the steak and salad,

i like your jokes, i’m a joker too, but i have to make up my own, cause i can’t remember any.

i hate playing the piano, my mom tried to make me and i rebelled. i refused to read the music, and played by ear.

do you dig in your garden to plant things, or bury dead people?

what are purple martins.

as for going out in your jammies, just do it.

i hate going barefoot, and if you do that often, i think you need to use a pumice stone on your heels. please tell me your heels aren’t crusty.

good sheets rock,

i like to drive fast too, cops keep pulling me over, and i hate that.,

if you jump on the trampoline at your age, you will wet your pants, trust me.

i tan a lot, and i don’t have wrinkles, because i invest hundreds of dollars in skin care that ROCKS

if you ever head over to the cliff in oregon, please stop in and get me.

i can’t wait for the day to watch you and hubby on amazing race, i too am a truth seeker,

in summary, we have a lot of things in common, i think i like you, if i lived there i would be a good friend for you. I’m glad I met you, and I hope we can continue to be good blogging buds for years to come. thanks for sharing this stuff about yourself, and it helps us know you better. one last thing. please post a pic of hubby. we need to have the complete picture of your happy family.

Anne said...

Hmmm, a picture of hubby? I'll have to think about that - he may not be very happy with me if I do that. I don't have any digital pics of him either. I need to figure out this scanner of mine so I can post some of my conventional pics.

Badoozie said...

just snap the picture. what, are you skeered of him? tell him susie will kindly beat him up if he does not let you share him with us. we are just a crazy bunch of stalking bloggers, who want to know everything about everyone, and that includes spouses, and stuff. now if we were asking about the type of underwear he has, then i could understand his concern. so tell him, not to worry, we won't be over in that neck-o-the-woods anytime soon, so he can just cooperate. i have always found that if you cooperate with me/susie, then you aren't likely to get the tar beat out of you.

uncle joe said...

AJ has no pictures of me but plenty of Hugh Jackman. They are everywhere. She is living in a fantasy world. Playing piano without notes is a real thing. That's how I play. Since you already sing and play guitar and have an understanding of melody it should come easy to you.
I have a 1975 Les Paul that is worth a lot of money so I understand the guitar thing. We gotta go. Talk to you next year.

Aunt Jo said...

I loved your list... I like lists about people. I have a freakishly long list about me. Maybe I will send it to you if you ask me nicely. It is WAY too much to blog about in one post and who really cares anyway? Very few people.

One thing I thought was funny was the Q-tip thing. I am the same way. My doctor tells me that it
is not good to have your ears SO clean, but I don't care. It feels good and I can't stand the watery feeling in my ears, but nine Q-tips is a little weird. (I however, am totally normal in my world.)

I love polished nails-fingers and toes, especially my toes in the summer when they can see out in my flip flops.

I want to say a WHOLE lot more, but I have to go to a party in the real world with oxygen now. Good-bye Bloggers and Happy New Year. Hope you get some kisses at midnight.

Badoozie said...

some people. going to parties. having invites. and me, here all alone with my baggy drawers, farting and wishing for good luck in 2006.

i have a 2004 pignose guitar, does that count? huh?

you guys, i have the worst luck. i got this coupon with my ipod that i bought long time ago. anyway, i've been shuffling this stupid coupon around the house from here to there, for many months. it expires tonight. so yesterday i set it out. do you think i can find it? nope. i looked everywhere. it was for 15 songs. it is the last punch in the gut for my year.

Aunt Jo said...

Get all that junk off your table and maybe you could find it Messy Susie.

Kish said...

Do you mind if I do this on my blog? I hate to be a "thief"


Anne said...

kish - go right ahead sweetie! I got the idea from another blogger. Can't remember who it was though.

Kish said...

Thanks. One day when I get a free minute I will, ha! i am swamped with bills, cleaning, re-ordering checks, ebay crap, taking care of my 3 year old child and my 35 year old child (ok, husband, ha :), thanks again!

google nut said...

I just happened upon your blog and it's proven to be quite interesting. I run a garden statue website at and I have some deals you may find interesting this spring. I will return often to your blog and check out your new posts. Good luck and keep it going!
