You know how one thing leads to another? I had a post almost ready for publishing. I wanted to write something about Edisto Island, so I searched through my blog to find an old entry. I found it, but I found this too, and thought I'd republish it. It's more interesting than the one I'd written today. This was posted in February of 2007. There's been a few changes since then, but not many.

Something Unusual Besides This Picture

I started this blog in earnest last August. I've never stuck with a journaling project before, but this must be the thing for me, because this is my .........

Ruth Hull Chatlien said...

Well, I was a recent arrival to this blog, so I loved the chance to learn more about you. Thanks for reposting this. I may swipe your idea when I hit my 100th post.

Billy said...

I remember the list. I remember when we first started to read each other's blog. You were one of my first blogging friends, and I am so thankful. Here's to 100 more!

Golden To Silver Val said...

Thank you for the list...I feel like I know you a little bit better. Sigh...I really don't think there are 100 things about me that are of interest. LOL I'll have to write some down and see what I come up with. Happy Thursday. And...I had a parakeet many years ago who would eat scrambled eggs off our plates in the morning. He was the most precious little bird ever and lived to be 17 years old. Something, huh?

Happyone said...

That's a lot of stuff about you. Some I knew, but lots of surprises in that list.

I don't think I could write 100 things about myself. :-)

Jenny said...

Your list was so much fun to read, Cheryl! We have lots in common -- notably numbers 2, 3, 7, 10, 13, 14, 16, 33, 39, 48, 59, 91, 94, 96, 98, and 100 -- but that doesn't surprise me. And I know you could figure out Photoshop.

Brad said...

I had to go google Edisto Island - what a great looking place. I can see why you love it. I'm game to play along, may take me a while to come up with a hundred.

I'm so sorry about #37 - That's how I lost my friend Dede.

Hope you doing good today!

Jay said...

You must have done that list before I discovered your blog. Very cool! I also love that you updated it.

Mo said...

Love the list. I don't know about playing along. I might. I loved reading yours though.

Unfortunately some of your list might mean we wouldn't meet in person but I hope that is not right or the case. But now I know why you understood about the dog next door and love you even more for asking about the kitties.

Sorry about 37. And you know I will help you out with 56.

Love you, mean it.

fiwa said...

I loved reading your list! I feel like I know so much more about you now. :)


Moohaa said...

Great list! I, too, feel a little more Cheryl-wise. I'm so sorry about your best friend. I think I will do that list, looks fun. And what impresses me, is some of the things I knew were changes before I read that you changed them! Woohoo, yea for my memory! :)

Love ya!

beachgirl said...

Thats impressive. I doubt that I could come up with 100 things about myself that is interesting.
But here are a few.
I ride a motorcycle
I love being a Mom
I love my pets
I go to the gym 5 days a week
I go to a nude beach so I have no tan lines
I love my life style
I love my 93 year old Grams
I love the beach
I really do love my life and my kids get a kick out of antics.

Lena said...

I loved reading your list!

I am going to work on mine, it will take some time though!

Sorry about #37 that must of been so hard. I lost a relative that way.

Mary said...

Haven't been to Edisto in eons. It was a lovely vacation spot and I'm sure it still is.

It'll take me a while to come up with 100 things about myself. Even then most of them will be blah - but I'll try.

Martha said...

I think I'm going to work on a list and try to get my sisters to play along!

ellesu said...

I loved reading that! Okay. My weekend project is to make my own list -- if I can.

SOUL said...

this is great-- neat to get to know more about you. some of these tho-- either you have revealed--or i have figured out-- not sure which-- but alot i didn't know.
glad you put it up--

my very first post was like this-- it may have been like 120-150 things tho-- i stole it from my sister. :)) i had no clue how to start a blog. but-- when i dumped my blog-- that was one that went with it.
maybe it wouldn't hurt to try another-- maybe.

anyhow-- i hope things go perfect for you this weekend-

Jamie said...

I loved this post, i remember it the first time around. I think it's such a wonderful way to get to know a person.

I think you have made a lot of progress in your life, in a very short time. The oatmeal part cracked me up and I LOVED the pic.

Happy Saturday Cheryl!


Diane Vogel Ferri said...

Congrats on #100. I 'm impressed with your list - I'm with you on #28.

Gin said...

How cool...Cheryl, I learned so much about you!! I will play some night when I'm up and can't sleep! That would be tough to come up with 100 things, but I'll try!

A friend of mine stole your idea for the forum I go to. Only we just did 10 things!!

You rock girlfriend!!!

Portia said...

Great 100! I'm glad you reposted it, because I wasn't around then. Some things I've picked up, but it's cool to know stuff like you were born in Brooklyn and make your own curtains! I don't like talking on the phone either, which is funny because it's not like either of us is particularly antisocial.

kristi said...

Very cool! Nice to get to know you better.
