  1. So…

    1. I didn’t entirely know or remember #5 (I think you might have told me in passing, but didn’t mention there was a name for it).
    2. Agree on #22.
    3. Use #25 (which I actually like to do to when it’s about people who are different) to get over #27. (It was wonderful, but all good things must come to an end. Especially TV shows, or else they get stale :/ ).
    4. Didn’t know about #28. You have super-classy taste. I just want a yellow Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, 4 doors, lol.
    5. I can help you with #29 one day. Although we’re on the other side of the road here, so that might be disorienting at first.
    6. Agree with you on #31. I am wanting to start drinking certain teas in the future though, as they have health benefits. But only if I can get some special “Miracle fruit” that will make the teas taste sweet instead of sour/bitter.
    7. About #32… I like “Alison” much better. 😉
    8. About #33… OMG hun, just no! LOL… I can’t….
    9. About #37… I’m jealous of you.
    10. #45 was another surprise, but makes sense based on what I know about you.
    11. About #49… almost everyone does. I’m quite certain of that.

    I should do a blog post like this for my WordPress account…

    1. 1.) I only knew what it was called myself recently.
      4.) It’s the expensive car I want. But normally I would get a range rover (so I can get out in the country).
      5.) It’s more money that’s the issue, it’s damn expensive to learn to drive, pay for tests, then get a car, insurance, etc.
      6.) Man do I need some miracle fruit lol.
      7.) Yeah I don’t like Sally either. It sounds… dumb.
      8.) Sorry! But try it if you haven’t (well you know veganise it first).
      11.) I’m really not sure they’re as weird as mine, when I tell people… I think they worry about my brain!

      Yes you should lol, because I wana read it!

      1. 1) Ah, ok.
        4) So then you want a Range Rover and an Aston Martin then… nice mix. I’m too messy, so I can’t do a fancy car. I’d be afraid I’d mess it up somehow.
        5) Yes it is damn expensive. The only reason I was able to finish taking lessons last year and finally get my license was because I got a BIG tax refund last year and then decided it was about damn time to just DO IT.
        6) The miracle fruit is expensive to, btw. :/ That’s why I have to wait to get it.
        7) Then we agree, lol
        8) I’ve already veganized mayonnaise. Didn’t care for it alone, so I couldn’t imagine eating it with ketchup and having that taste good. I think I need to find a veganized mayonnaise recipe that is closer to Miracle Whip. But I don’t think I’ll be eating that with ketchup either, lol. (Don’t worry, I still accept you as you are, lol. I’ll just have to look away whenever you make that mixture…)
        11) At least compared to my family (and myself), I doubt your dreams are any weirder. Email me one and then I’ll email you mine & a few of my family’s.
