    #13: I guess I’m like Tom Cruise too. I don’t wear a watch nor have a cell phone. If I need to know the time, I just ask someone who has a watch or if I need to contact my family, either I use a landline or ask a friend to use his cellphone to text them. And yes, kids are really smarter these days…:)

    ewok, there are so many that we match on I can’t list them. You have wonderful nephews just like I do. I love photography too. I used to travel a LOT. But not so much any more. ( I can come to your blog to see all the wonderful places left for me to visit in the world) I love chocolate all the time. I love watching Jeopardy and getting the answers right! I love coffee too – maybe 3 cups a day. Did you say you don’t have an e-mail address… My oldest nephew, Jerome, went to Machu Picchu in September – I’m still waiting for the pictures! I am a Gemini and married to a Leo. Loved learning so much about you! 🙂

    Just a thought, how did you know Tom Cruise doesn’t have this, that and the other ? Share with you 2,3; haven’t run through all your 100 things to find out what else we share. Of course we seem to share an interest in photography. Which is how I discovered your blog – via your comment on my photo blog – My Mysore. Thank you.

    What a list. Good that you have a l o n g luchbreak.
    I love lists, your is so creativ. I’ m with #23 bloghopping and #30 photography and #83.
    I love Galapagos Islands and I have been there (in a thiny sailboat circumnavigating the world – it was on our way from Panama to the Marquesas Islands (oh, I love them too).
    # 75 Kids are great. I have two and I work in a school.
    I’m not in movies and don’t watch any TV. We don’t have one (but in these internet times this doesn’t count). Instead I “watch” some photography or keep my blog. There is not much time left on an working day evening. And I enjoy reading.

    I love the scene that is supposed to be the Galapagos Islands in Master and Commander; my dad used to watch Jeopardy every night (he’s gone now), thanks for the memory that triggered! My daughter and I watch friends every chance we get; we used to live in Antioch (not far from you I bet); my mom and I love Tweety Bird (she’s gone now, too), again thanks for reminding me of her although I think of her and my dad every day.
    I love your list! One of these days I’m going to make one myself and perhaps post it. I like the way you did yours as a continuous thought line. Your nephews sound adorable, and I love your sense of humor. 🙂
