I don't think I could come up with 100 things about me...Good job!

DIXIECHICK said...

Thanks, Nap....I didn't think I could either...I just sat down over the last couple days, wrote them down as they came too me...it was a little easier that way.

Nicely done!

I also hate beer and like lemon drops, etc - anything sweet but prefer a premium vodka on the rocks, sometimes mixed with sugarfree redbull in moderation.

I blame my kids for my current hip-hop addiction. Can't get enough Kanye West, Akon, T-Pain, etc.

I enjoy dancing, especially if the music is loud, danceable and I've been drinking.

I've only been married once and although I often lust after beautiful women I see, I've yet to have an affair...

DIXIECHICK said...

Monk..sounds like we do have a lot in common..except for the affair thing...I am not proud of that...but, at the time..it kept me from having a nervous breakdown...he never found out, we divorced over his drug use and abuse...so, no harm done I guess...

Motor City Monk said...

It sounds like it was the right thing to do at the time, especially if it kept you from having a nervous breakdown. Seems like you're in a much better place now.

DIXIECHICK said...

Very much so..thanks Monk!
Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!

Motor City Monk said...

Thanks, you too!

Great list - I agree with loads on that list!
Making girlfriends post 30 is harder - but hey, if you ever make it to the UK, I'd be happy to meet up and do something girly!

Daddy Forever said...

My parents had an automatic so I never learned to drive a stick. I still can't drive a stick today.

I have to have coffee too. It use to be soda every morning, but it's coffee now.

I still don't understand how people can wear high heels and not fall down.

Glad you're not married to your second husband anymore. He sounds scary.

I agree. Halloween is the best!

I'm afraid of dying too and I also hate thinking about it. Too sad.
