#86 Oh my God!!! How terrifying. I feel so sad and helpless reading news stories of children/teens who get abducted and are never found. Thank God you weren't taken.

I saw Muriel's Wedding, and I LOVE IT. I wish Toni Collette had stayed chunky. She was much cuter then!

Thanks for sharing. We have a few things in common!

You're gorgeous. And I've seen Muriel's Wedding about, oh, 18, 19 times! It's one of my all time favourites too and it made me view friends and relationships and goals in a different way. Great list.

Oh we have some things in common, and lots of things not in common.

Like I wear socks all the time, even in the summer, because my feet are always cold.

Glad to learn all about you.

#86..You had your Guardian Angel working overtime on that one! When I was reading that I had a flashback of when I was 19 living in Seattle and almost got in a car with three guys I just met. They wanted me to go to the coast with them. I almost did, but an inner voice said NO!! I got a weird feeling and fled like heck. They tried to chase me down and I heard one of them say forget her!
(I was soooo naive in those days)!
Thanks for the 99!! That was fun reading!

I've never seen Muriel's Wedding. But now I want to.
Number 86 kinda bothers me. Cause it means God wasn't watching all the children there were abducted. Which is a really scary thought.
I feel like there's some real insight into you in this post.

I love all of those things about you, dear Barbara. Great list! HUGS...

It's funny that I was going to comment on Muriel's Wedding but so many others already have. I guess I'll have to see it again because it didn't have an impact on me one way or the other.

The list is excellent! I was going to do an updated one myself! Great minds!

It was nice to learn all about you!
Well, you were right with me, I have never seen Muriel's Wedding either, but it's now on my list! :)
