Okay, here goes. #8, I didn't mention that I was married before. Didn't even think about it. #38 Can't wait to hear your haunted house story. #40 No wonder he's an ex! #49 Those dances are good exercise. #52 I could never get them to work. #66 Yuck, no wonder. #78 As Susie says, it's never too late. :-) #85-86 Give me a good hotel any day. #96 When Bucky hears you have Spam she might just have to come over. #100 I will blogroll you as soon as I figure out how. Please don't stop blogging.

First: what Squirl said. Please don't stop your blogs!

Now, onto the main course:
Nice mugshot.
#6 - I'm so glad my sister isn't mad that I post about her!
#38 - You really gonna make us wait 'til Halloween?
#50 - another reason I don't dare have children.
#90 - this is how friends stay friends.
#97 & #98 - well, if you ever get the urge to go assless, please remember to share.

Great list! How long did it take you?

Thank you for that...I think I needed that today.

I appreciate your presence here and on mine and other blogs. You bring so much to the day to day experience. That and gratuitous assless chapage. That to me is worth it's weight in gold. ;-p

And you are swimming in good company with the likes of Squirl and Bucky. They are truly great women.

I see over at Squirl's place it only took you a half hour to do this?

*bows to the master*

We're not worthy!

And thanks, Greenie -- all our lives would be emptier without you, your cute boy, and your hypnotic dawg.

Thanks Greenie. We all love you.

And, Sierrabella, we would miss you so much if you bowed out. Hang in there. :-)

Wow- Visited by 3 of my all-time favorites on one posting! (Susie emailed me about this one as well.)

Thank you so much! Guess I can't stop with all this encouragement.

bucky-
The list came to me pretty fast, surprisingly.
My sister was angry because I mentioned she's always late... I didn't mention she was an hour late for her own wedding! The only other attributes I discussed was that she was long-legged and blonde. How could that anger her?

greenie-
Hello!
I'd seen a comment you'd made on another's site, where you mentioned sometimes feeling the same way about blogging.
I really appreciate your nice words. The assless carnage... oops I meant chapage will continue!

#6 - that's why no one, except for my husband knows I have a blog... not even my closest friends.
#15 - right there with you on the gardening
#34 - me too!
#35 - gambling is my favorite form of entertainment
#37 - yup!
#51 - I am terrified of ouija boards
#92 - I was a vegan for 3 years... I wish those around me were as understanding
#99 - DON'T STOP BLOGGING!!!!!!

cheesecakey-
I was looking at a vegan site for menu ideas, and came across some of the awful things people did to vegan guests.
One guy's mother went over the holiday menu numerous times so she could understand what was OK for him to eat.
Afterwards, she told him she added meat to a dish because he looked pale!
Yeah, I'll bet he looked pale after that!

I'm baaaaaaack.
25. Aren't they bizarre? Last year I did a long, tongue-in-cheek letter, saying things like I was cutting back on my drinking and trying to make it home most nights, Jif had made peace with the voices in his head, that sort of thing. People LOVED it; everybody makes fun of those things.
28. Me, too.
51 & 52. There has to be a story there.
72. Me, too.
80. The beautiful Asian-looking floral printed mug that I had used for 15 years "got broken" recently. I mourn. :(
83 & 84. Yes. SO yes.
92. This means his food can't touch cookware that's had non-vegan food in it? I had never heard about this.
99. Like I said in my email. :)

Awesome list! Very clever.

You COOK Italian and Mexican? You own a Playstation ? That's it, I'll be right over...waitaminute, there's still that Brussel Sprout thing...ick!

susie-
You should reprint that Christmas letter this next Holiday season, it sounds like a gas. Now don't go giving me ideas!
My son is Hindu, and teaches at the Temple in L.A. He won't even eat onion and garlic... how can one cook without them?

chris v.-
Thank you!
My favorite cookbook is Rao's Cookbook from the famous Italian Restaurant in NYC.
I usually saute the brussel sprouts in chicken boullion, and do not overcook. Maybe a little grated fresh parmesan on top.
We'll skip them when you come by for a visit! Please bring red wine!

Wow, now cheesecakey, susie and chris v. have stopped by! It's like a party, but dang, no assless chaps.

1:56 PM  
Blogger Susie said...

Wow, I admire your son's discipline. I would be back to cooking 101 without onion and garlic. I love the smell of onion and/or garlic sauteing (sp?) in olive oil. That's the beginning of most of the things I cook!

Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

Who says there's no assless chaps?
*bends over*

Blogger SierraBella said...

susie-
Almost everything I make starts with onion and garlic too.
I buy tons of fruit when he's coming up.

bucky-
Hooray, now the party's starting!
I really do need a better camera now!

4:14 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Okay, where's the camera and where are the assless chaps?

squirl-
Don't you remember?
We were all drinking red wine?
Oh well, what happens in Mountain Ranch stays in Mountain Ranch!

I love this post (and your blog) , I recently felt like maybe I was doing enough with my life(besides raising my daughters) but this blog has given me hope for my future. ;) I followed your link, I think Presley is your grandson and if so, he is freakin' adorable!

gina-
Hi, and welcome!
No, Presley isn't my grandson, but I think he's adorable.
I have pictures of my grandson posted on this site, maybe last month?
BTW, I popped over to your site, and I like it too!
