Tonight is going to be a long night.  I can tell.  This is due to the fact that I didn't actually drag myself out of bed until about 4 o'clock this afternoon.  For once it wasn't due to a bipolar episode, so "Yay!" to that.  It was because I had a massive migraine and felt extremely icky.  I am now dosed up on enough ibuprofen to make a small elephant woozy, but feeling a lot better (again, "Yay!") and feeling the urge to blog.  But I didn't know what about.

Lo and behold, the Diva answered my prayers.  She has posted a "get-to-know-me-better" type questionnaire on her blog (which you should really check out because she is completely awesome).  I love reading these kind of lists on other peoples blogs as it gives an insight to what they're like in real life.  Not to mention the fact that I'm a nosy cow.  So I thought I'd post one for all you fellow nosy bastards inquisitive people out there.  And so the Diva has given me her very kind permission to plagiarize re-post her questionnaire with my own answers, and I've added a few more questions to round it up to 100 facts.  Yes, it's true; I have no life.

So, here you go.  Everything you didn't know you wanted to know about me but couldn't be bothered were afraid to ask...

(And if you manage to read all 100 of them, I will send you a cookie.  A virtual cookie, but a cookie none the less.  "Yay!")

"Lived, loved, slept."

There you have it.  100 pieces of completely useless information about yours truly.  If you managed to get this far, you either have the patience of a saint or you're looking for a cure to insomnia.  Either way, let me know and I'll send you a "cookie".  And if you're feeling brave, feel free to take the "100 Question Challenge" yourself (and don't forget to leave a link to it in the comments box if you do).

Well, it's now 6a.m. and I'm nowhere near sleep.  Maybe it's time to consider sticking my head in the dryer to knock me out.  "Yay!"

Yoweeee! That's a whole lot of questions and answers. Now me, I don't have piercings, but I do love a skinny dip. Loved the gender swop answer!

PAMO said... [Reply to comment]

OK-- I didn't read all 100. But I did a good skim job. Funny stuff!
My birthday is also July 2. Hmm.

Glad your migraine is over. And I personally don't like your self reference as a "cow". I realize you are joking, but I don't like it. So there.

I love your posts! Such great variety and complexity. Fabulous.

Just started reading you and I think your great:) If I had to gender swap, I think I would just want to scratch my balls all , though I think Peeing standing up would be kinda cool too lol. My first concert was also New kids thought I do not cringe, I still love them. I know very sad at 35 lol

I don't cringe at the embarrassment of being a NKOTB fan so much as the amount of money I spent on them and the amount of screaming I did at their concerts. I still get a little twinkle in my eye whenever I think of Donnie Wahlberg...
