    um yes, i’m your sister and i was a little upset that i didn’t make your top 135 things you like, unless of course you count #105 getting along with siblings, but alas what can expect from a brother who puts himself on his own fav. 135 and does not know how to spell my last name!!

  2. SJ

    Great list – I have to admit I read the whole list and partly to see if Jen was listed above Pam – ha ha!!!!!! And hey – I made the list – people who regularly comment – – – – that is cool!!!

  3. kludge

    Congrats on 135!
    6, 17, and 54. Life is complete.

    I, not being a sports guy, had to look up 84. I thought for a moment that we were talking about Generalísimo Francisco Franco and I was a bit shocked. I additionally had to look up 104, but didn’t mistake it for a dictator.

    jbau- Jen will always come before Jenna. And why do you love coffee so much?

    Anna- Yes, I got it. I spelled your last name wrong. And besides, “cool” is not a strong enough word for how I feel about you.

    sj- I know which side my bread is buttered on.

    Kludge- Though a heartless dictator, I hear the Generalissmo was a pretty sharp dresser. Very Rico Suave.

  5. J Crew

    I like how Dew is #1 and Jen is #3. Very nice. I didn’t see lunch at Arby’s on the list though, what’s up with that

  6. Ando

    And I quote…”in no order whatsoever.” Guess that’ll learn me. Always make the wife #1 on any things that are cool list.

  7. jenylu

    17. Those tupperware sets that use all the same lid and come with a lazy susan to keep

    I’m sure that would make it onto my top 135 as well.

  8. RC
