Since 100 things and then 7 more wasn't enough, here are another seven. After reading through my other lists, some of the original statements have changed.

I can't wear jeans every day anymore (BOOOOOOOOO!), but I still wear sneakers daily.
The $3 gas statement (that didn't last long)
I've added a 1st place chop to my WWDN tourney score (new tally is 2 firsts, 1 chop for first, 1 second)
I have now played poker in a casino. Cash at the MGM and the blogger tournament at the Orleans.
I don't ALWAYS listen to Seal now that we have BuddyDank Radio.

New Stuff:

1) I have 2 Mookie wins.

2) When I was a kid, my friend and I snuck on to the property surrounding the Federal prison at Ft. Leavenworth, KS. They had a few buffalo roaming around and a little pond where we tried to go fishing. Since we were such brilliant preteens, we brought along my BB gun replica of the Winchester '73. The fishing action got a little slow so we decided to play like Bill Cody and took a few shots at the hairy beasts. Keep in mind that this was a single cocking gun that would shoot out the BB so slow that you could watch it leave the barrel and follow it all the way to the target. The most logical target were the balls the size of bowling balls hangin low. We got a lucky shot and it hit one square on his sack. Instead of wild bucking and charging like we expected, he simply let out a snort and continued grazing, but we laughed hysterically just the same. By this time, we had been spotted by the authorities and they came charging through the field and through the loudspeaker were telling us to "stay where we are." Of course to us, that means grab your shit and run for the fence line. We ran like hell and were able to make it out before the big yellow crash truck could catch up with us.

3) I probably need glasses, but I just hate to take the time to go pick out a pair. The exam doesn't bother me as much as shoppping for the frames.

4) The drunkest I've ever been was in Orlando for Ga Tech's National Championship appearance in the Citrus Bowl back in '91. Me and some other guy killed a fifth of tequila in the parking lot of Sea World. I drunkenly stumbled my way in to park. There were a couple of girls in the gift shop helped me get in with someone else's wrist band. The last thing I remember was going up to Shamu's tank and spreading out my arms like I was going to hug him. My buddies found me laid out in the flower bed at the entrance that spells out SEA WORLD. The next day, I barely made it to my seat, but only lasted about 5 minutes in the direct sunlight before I had to retire to the emergency station. I "checked" myself in to the ambulance and they tried giving me fruit punch Powerade. I thought I was better by half time and tried to go back in to the stadium. As I was leaning against the stadiums out wall, 2 horse mounted cops came to check on me. I told them I was fine but then immediately threw up on one of the horses. I looked up and told him I would head back to the amubulance. He gritted his teeth and said "I think that would be best!" I'm positive if we had not been in such a public place, I would have gotten the wooden shampoo.

5) I had a kick ass fake ID. It was my existing license that I completely recovered the face with new rub on letters and numbers and then another clear sheet on top. I still have it.

6) I will be the only person in my immediate family to make it 40 without a divorce. I was also the oldest to get married.

7) I have never learned a foreign language. I was in the last graduating class in high school and college that did not require it.
