56 to 100. Maybe...

Okay, so I guess I'm trying to make it to 100 here, and since I stopped at 55, I am more than halfway there already.

56. An amendment to #45 (two for one!). I don't have any female friends that I can go out to coffee with.

57. I can be really insecure when it comes to my husband (it's okay, you can pretend you didn't already know that one).

58. My favorite flavor of ice cream is............Coffee! I'm full of surprises right.

59. I question everything. Another newsflash!

60. I ignore ghosts so they leave me alone. If you don't believe in them more power to you--chances are they won't bother you at all lol.

61. I find empathy to be a rather painful experience but encourage it in my children--people who lack it tend not to care much about other people.

62. I'm happy with my new haircut even though she didn't quite do what I wanted.

63. My brain-to-mouth filter consistently malfunctions.

64. I have dark hair.

65. I never forgave my grandfather for how he treated my dad. Generations to come pay for that crap you know.

66. I have the dubious talent of being able to accidentally close my head in things like cabinets and doors. It seems to provide an endless amount of entertainment for those lacking in such skills.

67. I would rather be told an unhappy truth than an enjoyable lie.

68. I try really hard not to lose my temper because when I do it runs away with my better judgement.

69. I change my blog to suit my moods because I can't dye my hair or rearrange the furniture. He can be so unreasonable!

70. I believe in karma and occasionally wonder where the hell I went wrong.

71. I think this list is getting way to long.

72. I'm the worst tooth fairy in the world--leading to my eldest son's promise to be his brother's tooth fairy (really, I screwed it up with the first tooth. The first tooth!)

73. It doesn't take much for me to start feeling neglected.

74. I have never sent a text.

75. I would never wear shoes if I didn't have to.

76. I like figuring out how to replicate my favorite restaurant meals.

77. I have met women who could repopulate the earth in the time it took me to get out two kids.

78. I think that it is possible, albeit somewhat unpleasant, to love someone and no longer care about them (thing1 being exhibit A).

79. I love being in water but am terrified of it--I swim like a rock. But I can float!

80. I'm never dramatic. This list is killing me!

81. my dream house has it's own library.

82. I went to school for nursing but several experiences with our healthcare system made me decide that I couldn't function in it.

83. I like sucking cock but hate admitting it to him.

84. I'm losing track of what I have already said on this list.

85. I have a love/hate relationship with sex. 

86. I'm not happy with the fact that Alpha won't help me finish this damn list.

87. Ooh, he helped me--I like to be told what I want to do.

88. Dirty talk used to make me feel like I needed to go scrub my skin off. Now it turns me on but I still have a really hard time returning the favor.

89. I have had sex with four people in my life. One was a woman and one wasn't voluntary but I'm pretty sure they still count lol.

90. I think sexy is a state of mind.

91. I haven't slept through the night for more than a few nights in a row for nine years. I made the mistake of telling my mom the little one was sleeping through the night so he decided to prove me wrong.

92. Rain makes me happy.

93. I'm a bit of a control freak.

94. I write my best poetry when I'm miserable or blissful.

95. I am most angry when my feelings are hurt.

96. I think that I come across as flirtatious even when I'm not trying to be.

97. I'm pretty sure that the sky would fall if Alpha told me we were no longer going to have a power exchange relationship.

98. Electronics used to spontaneously die when I touched them.

99. Nothing makes me melt quite like being told how much he loves me and how special I am while he hurts me and proves that I'm a whore at heart.

100. It took me a week to finish this friggin list.

    1. Thank you faerie. Without your comment on the last one, this one would have probably never made it lol.

  2. I love the new look and it is so much easier for these old eyes to read.

    I can so relate to 59,60,63,67,76,79,93 and 96.

    Have a great weekend.

    1. sunnygirl,
      glad you like it--I'll try to stick with it for more than a few days lol.
      And people don't usually react well to 63 do they lol.

    1. Jz, right?
      Sandals are a decent compromise when you have to leave home. Though people don't seem to understand the sense in them being a logical choice as long as the snow doesn't come up over the tops of one's feet...

  4. Congrats on finishing this list! And, the new blog background is great!

    1. SNP, thank you.
      I'll try to resist the urge to change the background as quick as the last one lol.

  5. I haven't slept through the night for more than a few nights in a row for nine years. I made the mistake of telling my mom the little one was sleeping through the night so he decided to prove me wrong.
    Ugh. I hear you on that. It's been over a decade since I reliably slept through the night.

    1. Biddable,
      and people are always more than happy to share about how their kid has slept through the nigh since infancy lol.
      The thing is, even when they do sleep through the night, after a certain point, You don't!

      I'm thinking maybe 12 is the magic # of suffering years and then sleep returns? I'm just saying that because it sounds realistic but close enough that rest comes before death...

      Hope your little guy is doing good.

  6. Wow! Congrats! Don't think I could manage a hundred. And if I didn't, they wouldn't be nearly this interesting!

    1. Jake,
      I admit that I spent a ridiculous amount of time on this and regretted starting it more than once.
      I'm glad you found it interesting, and I'm sure if you made a list we would find it interesting too--They are far more interesting to read than they are to write lol.

  7. Yay you got there...i am so with you on 59 and on 60 i dont care who laughs at me im a believer...oh and i would also love my own library.

    tori x

    1. tori,
      yea, 60 is one we don't talk about much because it goes against the whole premise of ignoring them lol.

      And don't you think that anyone who doesn't want their own library is a bit strange? Or have I got that backwards lol.

  8. I knew you were flirting with me!

    Mr. No Name

    1. Mr. No Name,
      Lol. Glad we got that all cleared up like mud.

  9. congratz! you finished it.

    now i'm convinced i'm not going to do one. so good on ya!

    1. FA,
      lol. By no means let me discourage you. I would much rather read yours than have spent a week on this one!

  10. Lil,

    Well done.

    I can relate to 66... although I don't close my head in the doors... I forget they're open and bump into them... rather hard sometimes.

    Enjoyed your list.


    1. Joss,
      thank you.
      Yea, I once ripped off a cabinet door after hitting my head on it like three times in a row. In my defense, it was a very crummy door to begin with lol.

  11. I've figured out that if i just respond with a few tidbits when other people do these lists - i will never feel compelled to do one myself. I love when other people do these, and i'm intrigued by your list, but don't find myself 100 things worth of interesting.

    I also have dark hair, except for the gray. And my eyes are green when i'm intense or emotional - more gray when i'm mellow. I live barefoot - so do my sons - we leave footprints in the snow all winter. My husband hates the slightest change to the furniture, bumps into things for weeks... And my favorite ice cream flavor is coffee - and i do seem to question everything. And yes - the shit perpetrated by those before us seems to roll downhill for a long long time - i spend a lot of time trying to work out how to stop that.

    One of my least favorite phrases - but in this case it's perfect - thank you for sharing.

    1. gg, lol. So you will work your way up to 100 a few at a time over blogland? In retrospect, that really does sound like the sane way to go lol.

      I say my eyes are green but the lady at the MVD did yell at me once that they were hazel. I guess they change a bit with my mood and I'm thinking hazel is not my happy color?

      Alpha just started building shelves and things nailed in place so moving them wasn't an option...Then he became the one in charge so everything that's not nailed down pretty much just stays where it is lol.

      And I have to say "the shit that rolls downhill for a long time" is a very appropriate phrase when it come to that subject. And it's not just on my side of the gene pool either--everyone pretty much despises grandpa on the other side for the hell he put his kid through which led to the hell he put my husband through which led to attitudes he still fights against.
      And somehow the realization always hits at the worst possible moment--when you're interacting with your kids and realize "aww, crap..."

  12. Love the list and the new look too!

    #74- WOW. Do you think that will change when your kids get old enough for cell phones? Mine (16) would never answer his phone, but text..... I can get a reply in 2 seconds flat.


    1. faithful, thank you.
      Anything is possible. Learning how to text wouldn't be a great sacrifice in the grand scheme of things lol.


Play nice.
