100 things for the 100th post

15 Jul

So this is it. My 100th post. Isn’t it exciting and great excuse to drink a margarita? Yes, I think so too. Ok so, apparently I’m not supposed to bore you with an actual post, I’m supposed to tell 100 things you didn’t know about me, or did know but want to hear again…I don’t know, I’m not really clear on the guidelines, so we’ll just wing it. Here we go.

100. I can’t wink with my right eye, only my left.

99. My right eye is retarded and won’t stay closed.

63. Clearly, Groundhog Day is reserved for the true rebels among us.

62. I almost passed out on a roller coaster I was so scared.
