Chances are your chances are awfully good

Wow, I have been absent lately. My last post was almost a month ago. It's not that I've left for greener pastures, it's just that I have so many things to say, so little time, and when I sit down to write posts, they're never as good once I start typing as they were in my head at 2 in the morning as I was getting ready for bed. So in a situation like that, where I need impetus to get going, I take cues from my more sensible sisters, especially sdwolfpup, whose ideas are always grand. In this case, I thought maybe I'd do that 100 things challenge, as a way to poke me into posting in LJ, and not being afraid to just say what I want to say.

I was tying to think of things to write 100 entries about. Here's a few things I think I could actually follow through all the way -- vote and tell me what to do!

Poll #1835638 100 Things Challenge

What should I post 100 things about?

My 100 favorite episodes of TV and why
24(24.0%)
My 100 favorite movies and why
18(18.0%)
100 places I wish were mine
10(10.0%)
100 cute animals
9(9.0%)
My favorite 100 songs
10(10.0%)
100 vids I love
19(19.0%)
100 foods I've tried
10(10.0%)


Oh, and speaking of cute animals -- my latest foster dog, Winnie. She's a grotesquely overweight, slightly handicapped, going blind, nearly toothless, and partially deaf senior pug. But she's super sweet, and doesn't even seem to mind me constantly poking at her with medicines of all kinds.

I know, right? I cannot understand how she was left to become a stray. She's such a sweetheart.

I couldn't pick, so I picked them all.

Yay for adorable puppies.

Isn't she cute? She's so fat that when she's just standing regularly, all the fat in her neck and around her face scrunches up and you can't see her eyes as well as when she's standing like in the pic.

Those are all such good ideas. I marked most of them, but I think I am most intrigued by the 100 Places I Wish Were Mine. Also the 100 foods. Also the 100 songs and vids. omg I am no help. Hee.

Winnie is adorable!

I've been so into design and interior decor lately that I would love to do the places I wish were mine. So much cool architecture or interior design out there -- not to mention places like islands, or out of the way places, etc.

Winnie's pretty hilarious. I figure if the dog can't do anything much because of all their problems, they should be hilarious, at least.

I voted for all of them, because all of them sound amazing, and like something I want to read. Also, honestly, I didn't get very excited about this meme in general, because wow, 100 of something is a lot. But when I saw you were thinking of doing it, I got really excited! I would love to see you post about 100 of anything on that list.

Incidentally, that is a silly dog.

She is a very silly dog. Everyone laughs when they see her when we go on walks.

Yeah, 100 is a lot! It will be interesting to try to sustain it. But I'm enjoying the ones I'm reading so far, like SDW's, so hopefully I can!

Puglet!!! ♥ And I was supremely unhelpful in your poll, since I want to hear about ALL those things.

I think I've become the go-to girl for fostering smoosh-faced doggies with the rescue group. Heeee.

PUPPY!

She looks like a sweetheart. :)

I sympathize with losing the impetus to psst--I've been running into the same thing for a while now.

She really is a sweetie. There are already a few applications for her, in spite of all her handicaps, which is very heartening.

That's good to hear!
