8. unless it's sweet.
9. I love anything that is sweet

14. I love rice
15. especially brown rice.

18. but I even enjoyed them on rare days too.
19. I was living in Jerusalem when the Second Intifada broke out
20. I wrote a paper in Spanish about my experience the day the fighting began
21. (I was a spanish major - so everything I wrote was in spanish)

36. Monday, Wednesday, Friday are odd days
37. Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday are even days
38. Sunday is neutral
39. things that are "even" feel unnatural to me
40. which means Monday is a much better day than Saturday.

43. naturally, I assumed my middle name was Bunny
44. I remember several occasions being asked for my middle name and me stating "Bunny"
45. I don't have a middle name - that's probably what led to my confusion.

57. and an art museum.
58. I have really dry skin

How do you know when you have a 100posts? I found that really interesting about you Sunny Bunny. I have a problem (as you may remember) with odd numbers. Maybe that is why we get along so well, we are opposites :)

Jan said...

Loved reading this . . .I never knew you thought your middle name was Bunny! You've lived such an interesting life already. Amazing!! I'm looking with anticipation to seeing what the next 29-30 years bring.

Michelle said...

Stringham Family said...

Jill Hunt said...

It was fun reading all those things about you. Lots I knew but there were lots more I didn't know. And you don't like bread. I wish that was me. I LOVE bread too much which isn't good when I need to lose so much weight!

Sonja said...

I've been waiting for the Office too! woo hoo!
I'm glad to hear that dispite being a gymnast, the only bone you broke was your toe. :?

I loved reading all these great things about you! You are a wonderful person and I'm so glad you are my friend!

Sonja said...

oh, and I smiled when I read about "Sunny Bunny" because we call Claire, "Claire Bear" and she tells people her name is Claire Bear.

Becky & Joseph said...

I made it to the end too and loved reading about you! Tons of stuff I never knew, and a few I did. You're an incredible person! Thanks for sharing!
