HA! I had to go back and look at all of these! :) No, I didn't think about the whole "beaver from the beaver" thing until several months later. :) MUAH!

Loving #100! :0) Love the list because...now I know....and knowing is half the battle!

Ok, the papercut in the eye thing? I never thought about that one, but I went to college with a girl who got hit in the eye with a rubber band at her job at the Gap, and she had to have surgery. Ever since then I've been terribly afraid of rubber bands. They scare me. I think I might copy this idea for my blog, although I'm not celebrating a fabulous amount of posts yet.

Also, your pie recipes? Will you share?

So here are my comments on a brief few of these...
#26... At least he didn't say since you married him... :)
#53.. I also have this (irrational) fear of paper cuts on eyeballs. I knew I liked you for a reason.
#74... Hubby doesn't get this one, but I CANNOT face him at night, I can't stand breathing warm air. No matter who's it is.

There you go.
