  1. Some things:
    11. I love your usage of the word "doughy"... one of my favorite adjectives.
    38. Bailey? What happened to Bernard?!!?!! Seriously, if you tell me that something bad happened to him, I WILL start crying. Without a doubt.
    45. Not ALL people who have iPods are insufferable, materialistic tools. Lots of people are when they have iPods because they're popular. But then there's people like me who fill up their 80 gigs because they just can't have enough music with them at all times. Do you think I'm insufferable and materialistic?
    61. Probably my LEAST favorite smell. Way to crush my hopes of us being soulmates.
    63. Okay. Hope of being soulmates restored. As long as you sniff wet pavement on your own time.

    Annndd... that's it. In closing, I would like to say that replying to your blogs makes me feel creepy because I could easily tell you these things a) in person b) on the phone c) on facebook d)on aim e)via email f)via blimp at the superbowl.

  2. In to response to the iPod thing, Kat:

    I feel that people who own iPods and actually USE them (like you, for instance) are cool. Sadly though, most iPod owners have less than three gigs of music and tote 30 gig models around regardless. For many people, they're needless frivolities. For you, its the essence of life.

    See the difference? =p

  3. Y'know, when I saw the title to this post, I was hoping you would give 70 answers to EACH of the 70 questions for 4900 answers.

    You disappointed me.

  4. You know that smell wet pavement gets when it hasn't rained in a while?

    Living in Seattle, I'm surprised you know about that... ;)
