  3. I LOVE Dr. Laura too. No way would I even be able to think of 101 things about me. I always get stumped on, “Say one interesting fact about you.” One! I can’t even do that.

  4. #41. I think alot more people read your blog than you know.

    #77. I was stuck on the Thunder Mountain Express ride at Disneyland once and had to climb down the first tunnel to get out. I took a picture of it…

    #81. I listen to Dr. Laura too, and what to tell some of those callers “to get a life!” Who has time for all of their drama?

    #92. Stumped on the Type J?

    Cool tidbits on Jennifer (not Jenny), but not necessary to have learned the fate of the hotdog!
