Cool list.

Re: 1-*sigh* liked Counting Crows "Big Yellow Taxi" first time I heard it--but i knew two other versions so that doesn't count.

15 - me too (er, not that I love YOUR parents, though I'm sure they're nice people...)

32 - sad, that

50 -goes well with bacon...

81 - We have been given t-shirts we're supposed to make the worst offenders wear--I said at that staff meeting "so it's a contest--whoever has the skankiest outfit wins a free t-shirt?"

88 - I know, dammit. (er, uh--yeah, those aren't my footprints by the shrubbery)

89-91--and what a great business opportunity combining those three might be

100-101 - same w/ me and my wife's family

103 - "6 year renunion"? What sort of weird-ass high school did you go to? Are you sure there really is such a reunion? Did they tell you it was a costume party as well?

116 - ditto.

Last weekend at Target I got 4 shirts, 2 pairs of pants, a pair of shorts, lighters, a badminton/volleyball set, and a baseball glove for only $138!! Awesome.

1. I don't think remakes count. Usually with a remake, I like the version I heard first better.
50. Bacon and beer: the breakfast of champions.
81. LMAO
88. Sorry 'bout that.
89-91. In York they have done that...
103. LOL...well, our class president went to jail, so that may have held up the process.

Holy Lord Jenny! $138 for all that! That's exactly the reason Target rocks!
Also must say that #28 is the story of my life! Weddings make me miserable. They make me feel as though I'm the only one out of my group of friends who hasn't gotten married and had babies. Plus, who really wants to sit there for 2 hours while 2 people are confessing their undying love for one another...especially when they were just fighting two days ago.
But no, I'm not bitter. :)
