the other Jersey.

Scully said...

Oh, you are like, so cool!

I'm very into sarcasm. I have the same problem. People think I'm a pessimist when really I'm just sarcastic.

And I scare people.

The boss says that he never worries about anybody giving me a rough time because he knows I can take on anyone. I'm 5'2" and weigh 125 lbs but I have spunk.

I so must do a 100 list.

Have you ever been to Canada? I've never been to New Jersey, but I've been to Seattle, Montana, Indiana and of course, Chicago.

Very good 100 list for a very cool person.

And scrapbooking is very cool.

If I said "'SWift' (or 'SpeedWalker') is lookin for an old friend named 'Jersey Girl'" would that make any sense to you?
Does "Purdue" or "Lafayette" ring any bells?

If so, please get in touch.

"Friendships may wane, but never die..."

In any case, many thanks.
