  72. My favorite ice cream is Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia.
  73. Stawberries are my favorite fruit. They’re sexy like me. *giggle*
  74. The proper way to make a bologna & cheese sandwich is to put a mustard smiley face on one piece of bread, put the two pieces of bread together so its on both, then layer it cheese, bologna, cheese, bologna.

  83. I seem to lack coordination again for some reason.
  84. No, I don’t take diggers… I walk into walls & other objects that never move instead.
  85. I like to dance around my house when I’m home alone. I pretend I can sing, too.
  86. I rarely dance when I go out now. It use to be my sole reason for going out.

  102. Well, with the exception of the gray hair I keep having to hide.
  103. Cheese Omelets rock!
  104. I have a fear of sharp objects as a result of me slicing the tip of my pinky off in 2002.
  105. I hate touching raw chicken. The slimy texture of it gives me the heebie-jeebies.
  106. Speaking of texture, I occasionally can’t eat yogurt, bananas, or cottage cheese because the consistency makes me gag.
  107. That sucks a lot because I love yogurt, bananas, and cottage cheese.
