48. I can live off of the land
49. People come to me to solve problems
50. I am chubby and started to kickbox which is friggin' great!
51. So what. I just want to be healthy and totally don't believe in the BMI - still true.
52. Our culture is built on placing people into categories and giving them labels, hence the BMI - so true. Stupid health insurance industry.
53. I don't fit these categories and never will.
54. I offend people usually because people are wound too tightly for their own stinking good
55. I like being deformed, I wouldn't be me if I weren't

58. I don't go to the movies -- unless it's a cartoon or clay-mation.
59. I love Wallace and Grommit
60. I don't go to the movies because the scripts are bad and I totally just refuse to pay for Hollowood's lifestyle
61. (deleted)

66. Too many of my relatives know what a prison system is like first hand
67. Abortion should be legal, but it isn't for everybody -- I respect that it is a personal decision and my tax dollars shouldn't be making those decisions.
68. I routinely smile and flip off W and Cheney when they drive by in DC - wow, it has been awhile since I changed these. Now I'm flipping off Obama for actually leaving the White House and boogering up traffic.
69. Clinton may not have been able to keep his pants on, but at least he wasn't a greedy fuck
70. He was too busy with girls who didn't wash their clothes, eeew
71. I hate greedy people
72. This coming from a selfish girl, so it must mean something
73. All of my friends are hatching children, I'm not sure I want to be a mother. My child would be warped. (Or I would drop it one its head)

79. I didn't go there for the pot or the Red Light District
80. Van Gogh, people, and Hieronymus Bosch are my favorite painters, hence the trip to Amsterdam
81. I dislike organized religion, I haven't been impressed with their need to fatten their bottom lines
82. Tom Cruise fell off the turnip truck and then was stepped on by a cow
83. I make fun of the people outside the entrance of the Washington DC Scientology Center "What? You going in for a massage??" During the summer they set up tents in the park at Farragut Square in DC and give "free" massages while you learn about who they are. Creepy......
84. Some days I'm not nice and that's okay, you don't have to like me
85. For what I have been through in my life I'm quite adjusted
86. I can cope, most people can't. I remain cool in really, really bad situations

88. Jerome the Man Candy now has to listen to me whine.
89. I'm going to have to have my right hip replaced one day and I want to keep the new one in order
90. I don't like that idea too much, but the morphine was nice (I think)
91. I have a very high tolerance for pain, I think it's related to the migraines
92. I respect myself
93. I wish we could have sheep in the yard, but the local government wouldn't dig that and the House Man doesn't think I could get away with pretending that it's a sheep "dog"
94. I hate washing dishes and The Man rewashes them anyway so I've stopped washing them.
95. I like to mow the lawn, so I do that instead
96. I loved my truck, it was a standard V8, 2004 Dodge Quad Cab. I now own a clown car. I've named it Bongo.
97. I drive very well and have a great sense of direction but manage to freak passengers out a bit
98. I love all music except for modern country. I don't care that you have a tear in your beer, go blow your nose and get a life.
99. I can't dance, Molly Ringwald is a better dancer than I am.
100. I love to take naps.
