Well, to find mine, you need to scroll down through 90 Nifty Things:

I sympathize with Jacquie's #7, and it could make it on my list, but it does not fill me with the same kind of sweaty palm, weak muscled nausea that the sound of my #7 makes.

I wish that Jacquie's #3 had an opportunity to happen to me more often.

#5, I love that word, too, but it can only really be paired with "crazy." But, then you'd think it's be a regular part of my vocabulary (given the crazy people I'm around).

Beth's #1 and #2 make us like soul sisters. I like her #5 a lot, too.

And, I gotta love "Skippy's" #5. I was just complaining on Friday night that we don't drink enough champagne.

You ladies are a riot!

Geez. I just realized that I offered up conflicted answers to numbers 8 and 9. I don't want to be a grave digger for people who have recently died, instead I'd like to try digging up people who have been dead a long time?!?

I may need some professional help.

" I don't want to be a grave digger for people who have recently died, instead I'd like to try digging up people who have been dead a long time?!?'

I thought it was a pre-planned statement of sophisticated irony and admired the thought you must've put into it. I actually gave a little laugh at it when I first read it, seriously, I thought you meant it that way!
