Sometimes, I'm just against the fashion. If I put this trendy list down in my zone, I'm thinking of doing it with a twist. Perhaps even a subversive satirical twist.

I do think if you are looking to attract members of the opposite sex that this is a good list to put out there. However, it could be dangerous. What if they turned it around on you and said: "You can't be intimate with me until you know 100 facts about me." That would stop you in your tracks.

That's an idea. I have another one that I think I will spring next week. But if that fails (as many do) then I may jump on your bandwagon!
