100 Revisited

While I was knitting away like a big wooly maniac, I decided to re-post an updated version of my 100 list. I know it’s really lame, but I don't have a lot of extra time. I’m a woman on a mission. So far I have 2 scarves, a pair of mittens and a hat completed. It pains me to be away from you, but the end results will be well worth it.

T - You're very special. In the words of Billy Joel (think Murph and the Magic Tones from "Blues Brothers"), "Don't Go Changing".
But truthfully - If I wasn't married and completely in love with my wife and you weren't married and completely in love with your husband - you'd still be way out of my league, wouldn't give me the time of day and I'd want you for my very own.

GWTW is worth seeing. The most memorable scene I can recall was when Gerald told Scarlet that land was the only thing worth having. That was ca 35 years ago. I also have read the book.

At 8:33 AM, Blogger twocents said...

You are an interesting, admirable, magical woman. #33 and #34 make me lust you. I'm sure you've heard all that before.

At 9:04 AM, Blogger theresa said...

Al - I feel the very same way about you, Sweet Cheeks!

Yoga - Thanks for the tip.

2Cents - I think the guy from #34 was either scared or annoyed.

At 9:22 AM, Blogger Laurie said...

Theresa - you are just toooo cool!

Three women, eh? ;-)

And how can someone be "too exuberant" in bed?? That person must have been a wuss.

I'm the same way with the painted toenails - mine are always painted, but my fingernails maybe during the holidays, but that's it. It's because I can't sit still long enough to let 'em dry!

And if I were to guess your IQ, it would be waaaay up there :-)

i can say "me too" to 17 of chiks are the shit... :)


At 10:31 AM, Blogger Steve said...

Wow...I see a lot has been updated since January. In love 4 times now, not just 3... :+) That definitely stands out!

Great list, Theresa...then and now.

At 10:50 AM, Blogger Ron Southern said...

Like every other man in America, I want to have carnal knowledge of you with my tongue. At least!

At 2:06 PM, Blogger Anonymous Assclown said...

You've inspired me. In the last week, I've knitted four caps to give to the homeless.

Disclaimer - when I said "knitted" I really meant "bought". And when I said "caps" I really meant "bottles of Mad Dog".
It's the thought that counts though.

At 2:33 PM, Blogger Ed said...

Great list, Theresa, and interesting to compare with the last one.

If I was Santa I'd certainly have you on my 'Nice' list! :)

At 7:37 PM, Blogger theresa said...

Al - 12 hours later, and I'm still blushing ... :)

Laurie - Are you flirting with me?
(hope so)
The anti-exuberant guy was a whole lot of wuss. Cripes, I hadn't even brought out the toys yet.

Monkey - I love the me-too's in the 100 lists!

Steve - Love is grand! ... and many other things, but the "grand" part is the bestest.

Ron - I can think of several men in America who would definitely disagree with you. Nice thought though ... I think ...
Ron, you can put your tongue back in your mouth now!

AC - If by "thought", you really meant, "make Theresa giggle", then you've been very successful.

Ed - You'd make a very sexy Santa!

At 1:04 AM, Blogger JayneSays said...

You are fascinating, chica. I would love to hang out with you some time and pick up your flirting techniques! I am a terrible flirt, start blushing, stammering, whenever I try. Sigh. Actually, I take that back, I can flirt, but only with women and gay men. . . Pointers?

At 10:26 AM, Blogger AndyT13 said...

That is SUCH an awesome list! WAY more interesting than mine. *pout*
You are an amazing woman.
Tons of love and Hoopy Hallidays!

At 11:09 AM, Blogger Laurie said...

T - I am most definitely flirting with you!

At 11:47 AM, Blogger Julie said...

How interesting! I've been reading your blog for months now and I found some surprises on your list. You are fascinating and delightful!

At 9:02 PM, Blogger theresa said...

Jane - We'd have a blast hanging out, and I bet you're a better flirt than you think you are. But if it makes you happy, I'll teach anything you want to know.

Andy - Hoopy Happilays to you too. And, stop comparing!!! You're most definitely one-of-a-kind, my friend! A true GEM!

Laurie - Oh Sugar! You just made my day!

Julie - I haven't been holding out on you purposefully, but I have to admit, a few other people have mentioned that they never suspected me of being AB negative.

At 9:21 PM, Blogger No_the_game said...

Glad to know more about you. :) I might do something like this

At 12:36 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I can fold fitted sheets perfectly.

I think I'm in love.

At 8:21 PM, Blogger theresa said...

No_the_game - I look forward to reading yours.

RUSerious - If that's all it takes, I'll be sure to include that in my personal ad.

At 12:50 AM, Blogger kelebek }{ said...

Wait, you are married?! I most certainly didn't know that one!! I might have to revisit my 100 things list at some point too. Thanks for the inpiration. When are we having that cup of coffee?

At 4:01 PM, Blogger Dick the Boomer said...

I've read this many times and I would have to my favorites are numbers 15, 16 and 66.

I love my wife... but, my gawd, girl... you are awesome.

At 10:29 AM, Blogger theresa said...

Kelebek}{ - Married for 12 years. I do need to schedule a little trip to Madison soon.

Dick - 15 & 16 are my favorites too. It's also entirely possible (even healthy) to love you wife and think other people are awesome. Otherwise, the world might become very small.
