57. I like washing dishes, not drying.

58. I like folding towels, but not laundry.

59. I used to put my clothes in the dryer on cold mornings when I was a kid- my dad got mad because he said we were wasting electricity.

67. I am almost art ed certified.

68. I don't like horses.

Seriously! You are the only one that eats watermelon! Comment on 74- I will never forget that you introduced me to scrapbooking.

You owe us another one for #79. First of all, it wasn't about you. Second, we all already knew that anyway. C'mon, throw us a good skeleton out of your closet. :) (Although, notice, I haven't even bothered to make a list of my own... I don't know if I trust myself to let my thoughts just flow like that and share them with everybody.)

You've done things I wish I had done or will do! And there are many things on your lists that make me smile. I wish I knew that many things about myself that someone might actually be interested in.

I agree with Becky - #79 was a ripoff. Ditto with the Jacksons - you are the only person I know who likes watermelon.
I am, however, quite shocked and slightly upset that you don't like horses. What's up with that???

Just for the record, I like watermelon...
