100) I am a maniac ... I was born in Maine

99) (why does the song 99 bottles of beer on the wall echo in my brain now?

9 ( I know I cheated but give me a break) when I was five months my parents took me to a park in Maine that had seals resting on rocks out in the bay.

A maniac, eh? When I was first diagnosed bi-polar, one of the ways I coped with that new knowledge was to pretend to joke about it. I'd say "Yep! I'm a Manic-Depressive! No, it's not contagious... I inherited it! My Mom is a maniac and my Dad is always in a bad mood!" Anyway... I wanted to tell you thanks for your sweetness in my blog today, and I ended up with a nice bonus... to congratulate you for your 100th! {=}

Someone suggested that I do a "100 Facts About Me" blog for my 100th post, but I couldn't. Too much stuff I didn't want to share at the time (though I later did). This was fascinating to get to know some stuff about you. First date at a hockey game, eh? Well, it IS Minnesota, so that's probably more commonplace than I think.

And don't worry, I can't dance, either. Blindfolded giraffes on acid have more grace than I do.

No plans on doing this myself - I'll just keep posting my 10 things from time to time & bits of info here & there.

A list of 100 is too much for me to come up with all at once!

Sis, I just loved reading your bio....couldn't get enough...I am so sorry of the death of your best friend...so does that mean that position has been taken or is it available? I know I can't take his place but would love it if we could become the best of friends! I know we are sisters already but to add best friends is a real treat!

nice job!

Was you're friend's death the one where Gacy tripped up? How long afterwards did you know how he died or why?

A friend of mine knew the first person killed in the Manson murders... got to feel responsible for the death (with some minor validity)....

Do not think it was the one that tripped him up...i'm not sure..it is really too painful for me to study what gacy did.. All i know is that my friend hated his teeth and that is what they identified him by... and he was missing for a year before we knew it was him there....

Oh... and thanks
