I feel like I know you so much better now!

Bailey Stewart said...

I love thunderstorms and I hate swimming in lakes too.

Hello, Michele sent me.

Have a great day.

Deana said...

You are an interesting person. I am a chick flick sucker too and I am addicted to my flip flops which sometimes makes me sad because I have so many lovely shoes but skip them to get to my flip flops!

Michele says hi!

Dave said...

I'm interested in why you felt doing this list was a worthwhile way to spend 3 hours?
Here from Michele's today.

Just a trumpet player said...

Dave: probably because it's been raining like its running out of fashion for the past 2 weeks , was unable to sleep and was looking for something to do ?

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

What an interesting list...
Here from Michele's today and there is a Blog Story in every one of your 100 things! Fascinating.

Paige said...

My goodness, what a list. I don't understand why you want to see my beloved & I fall down the escalator just because we are smooching.
Hey came by way of Michele's today.

Courtney said...

Good list!
Here via Michele today.

Yo Tambien Te Mando Besos said...

Hi Trumpet Player!

You surely are an interesting character! Love your list...

Nico said...

Well, I knew some of them:
5 of course,
10 (and you miss the exit on highway...),
16 (me too),
24 (Europe tour organisation),
37 & 39 which are linked and remind me one special night...
45 (Europe tour organisation),
72 (but you played harpsichord!)
75 (even when someone is waiting for you and you are late ;-)

Sue said...

LOL -- took me a while to read it too LOL -- someday I will do this one -- took long enough to do my DVD list LOL -- thanks for visiting.

Dak-Ind said...

i enjoyed your list. i read the whole thing because frankly, it was interesting... i am curious about the freak ping pong ball incident though.

kenju said...

We have # 90 in common....LOL

Michele sent me.

archshrk said...

Hello, Michele sent me.

I typically don't do the survey things (mostly because I can't think of anything interesting to answer) but I am very impressed that you did this one and that it only took you 3 hours. I would drag this one out over several days before publishing.

utenzi said...

I gather Nico is your twin, JATP.

Michele sent me to see you and marvel at your... list. :-)

My first thought is that if a 30 year old woman has a dirty mind and likes to drive long distances, I'll provide the money (she's broke) as well as the Godiva ice cream and eggs Benedict.

My second thought is: do you really put mayo on sushi?!?! LOL

PS I'm not a lobster nor an EX. You don't need a hammer nor a restraining order for me.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Michele sent me back to you today...And I still think your Hundred Things are very very interesting!

I love Mayo too, though I don't put it on everything.

Ciera said...

Is the pinky you don't have feeling in the same one that has the paint chip in it?

all that's right, or not said...

found you via michele enjoyed your post, haven't read it all yet. I also might copy the idea one day. Have a nice day!

Just a trumpet player said...

UTENZI : You made my day ! No, Nico is not my twin sister. Nico happens to be a friend, a male friend... And no, I do not put mayo on sushi ; I am not that weird !!

Oh ! and I'm always game for adventure and road trips !

DAK-IND : about the freak ping-pong table accident story... I was helping some friends move a very old ping-pong table when a latch gaved way and the table flew open, cutting off my left pinky. Luckily, doctors were able to sew it back together ! That also explain the chip of paint left in my finger and the no sensitivity thing...

PAIGE : I don't want to see YOU and your sweety fall ! I want to see one of those "get-a-room" couple fall...

Tracie said...

Wow what a great post. I feel like I know lots of random things about you now.

My favorite was #90-I used to do that when I was a kid. (it's scary but true!)

Here via Michele

Sandy said...

Wow. I think 3 hours is pretty good. Just thinking of composing a list of 100 things I'd not mind sticking on the internet hurts my head. :)

Michele sent me over this evening. I enjoyed getting a little clearer picture of someone I enjoy reading.

Marisa said...

I am so impressed, not just with the fact that you finished this list in ONLY 3 hours, but with the list itself.

Michele sent me today and I'm glad she did. I've really enjoyed your site.

Shane said...

I'll be sure not to offer you any jack daniels and cinnamon rolls.

i enjoyed your charming list.


Prego said...

Is the one ovary thing the result of the train wreck or the Metallica concert?

Good list!

utenzi said...

Michele sent me this time, Ms Trumpet. I don't remember why I was here yesterday. I guess my memory is fading with age. eeek!

Wearing short skirts as tops is a very interesting habit. Is this usually preceded by a fifth of Scotch? I thought lampshades and pink elephants were more traditional tho.

I tried to avoid the subject last time, my dear, but my curiousity just overwhelms me. What happened to your nine missing toes? You mentioned that you can't leave the house without applying polish to your toe--and I just have to wonder if this affects how you walk.

100 things about you and I have at least 50 questions about them. Well, that gives me something to comment about for a long while. LOL Do I hear someone say "restraining order"?

Empress Juju said...


But do you think the flip-flop addiction and the broken toes might be connected?

Be well....

LJ said...

Hi there! Thank you for the comment in my space. You know, after reading this list, I find we have quite a bit in common. I am also a twin, but not identical (big difference, but people are still fascinated that I am, in fact, a twin). I'm also an Aries. And, well, the list of similarities would probably take me as long as it took you to finish that list. Very interesting indeed.

I'll be back!

Diane Mandy said...

78-- I thought I had the most extensive bra and panty collection. You have me beat.

shpprgrl said...

Nice list. I'm sure it was amusing putting this together....meaning it was time well spent. Anyway, I am impressed that you color you hair every 3 weeks! Gosh! Bad guys being attracted to you is much better than you being attracted to bad guys by the way....Happy Thursday, Michele sent me!

Prego said...


Thanks for the visit yesterday.

Anonymous said...

LOL !!! Since i'm your twin sister, i know that everything on that list is true. But c'mon...We failed ballet class because we were not flexible enough and now i learn that you use to bite your toes nails ??? Hum...


barbie2be said...

Hey there, just came across your blog by accident. Strange...I relate a lot to what you are saying. This might come off more like a pick-up tactic when instead it seems as though I have found someone who I can talk to. I would love to talk adventures with you...visit my webpage first and then decide. It seems like we might be on the same wavelength and it's damn hard to find somebody I can relate to. Oh, yeah...I'm a trumpet player also. I've had anything but an average life and I feel as though I'm slipping back into the same shit rotation. Constantly looking for something that makes me feel as satisfied as the last gig. The bittersweet life that comes with the tragic ending of the musician. So I guess once I hit "post" everybody will see this? Okay, hello everybody else. Cheers...
