This has been a work in progress for a while, it takes ages to come up with 100 facts about yourself!

    I can reply “me too” to 22 of those things on your list. The stroke sounds scary, I’m glad you recovered.I’m going into a Lottery agent today and I’m going to buy a ticket with different combinations of those numbers. I’m always looking for randomly occurring numbers that look like a winning Lotto ticket. I’m strange like that.

    (that wasn’t very clear… there are 10 items between 1 and 40 that I can say “me too” to, and those are going to be my Lotto numbers. Needless to say if I win I’ll be helping you out with that shoe obsession.)

    We are very much alike in some aspects and totally different in others. You forgot to mention the purse addiction, still in denial I see.

    You cheated girl. Some of those points could have been squashed into the point above. Never mind, I just might do the same only I’m going to condense it because I couldn’t do a 100 things about me and everyone would be bored stupid anyway.
