Beth said...

Excellent list! And I learned several things about you. I keep thinking about doing one of these ...

Marni said...

Go for it! I didn't realize how tough it was going to be. I got to, like, 40 and started struggling.

Paige said...

I don't have a blog (nor do I want one), but I'm going to come up with my list and e-mail it to ya'll and a couple of close friends.

Marni said...

That would be great!

ccw said...

I love reading these lists; so glad you made one for yourself.

Go Bengals!!

barista brat said...

the buying and hiding books from your husband made me laugh out loud!

Marni said...

CCW: Love those Bengals! I have since I was a little girl.

Brat: He would kill me if he knew just how many books I buy. I usually keep them locked in the trunk until he goes to work. :)

Old Lady said...

Wow, what a list. You have accomplished quite a bit.

shewearsplaid said...

This was great.

Life, or Something Like It said...

WOW. That is impressive. 1st of all..YAY! for losing the weight. I love Lost, I buy a ton of books, and sometimes forget which ones I have,I love The Breakfast club, I saw The Full Monty production in Toronto..It was amazing. You would be on my blogroll, but I don't know how to do it, I read you everyday...

Heidi the Hick said...

Marni, I loved your list!!! Sorry I don't comment more often. I think I'm going to sneak into Life Or Something Like It and put you in her blog list, tee hee!

comebacknikki said...

Excellent list! I love reading these!

Btw- I *love* KwikTrips. They were all over in Wisconsin (where I used to live). Unfortunately, there aren't any in Chicago, so I'm seriously missing their flavored coffees (lived on those during college).

Marni said...

Old Lady: I didn't realize it, but I guess I have!

Plaid: Thank you!

Life: We've got an awful lot in common! Isn't it fun to learn that people thousands of miles away are just like you?

Heidi: Go for it! Teach her how to do that kind of stuff. I am going to teach my dad, too

Nikki: If I didn't get my QT coffee fix every morning I would be such a bitch to work with!
