"I don't believe in the designated hitter."

Yes! Yes! YES!

How committed are you to this Dean guy? Will you marry me?

lefty_grrrl said...

I misread "I can't wait to be a mom someday" as "I can't wait to be a man someday."

My eyes fell out of my head and onto the floor.

Yeah, screw the DH.

Especially if he's cute.

"I will have to stop plucking gray hairs soon and start coloring them."

Me, too. It sucks.

magnetbabe said...

I think a lot of them are common traits in scientists. Nevertheless, I like to think we could be friends in real life! ;)

Aw, thanks! Keep reading, I'd like to be guaranteed at least one reader for the next 100...

Your memroy astonishes me. RE:64 I like everything Indian I've tried. I don't know that I could sustain on the 3 Vietnamese dishes I know I like!

mr. schprock~
There's no ring on my finger. State your case. Include your feelings on the wide strike zone.

"I can't wait to be a man someday"?! You know me better than that! Unfortunately I don't know a lot of hot DHs. Thus part of my disdain.

DearOldDad said...

What MB didn't mention in #21 is that she nearly bled to death during a piano competition.

MB - I think I just gave you material for blog #101.

Great post - thanks!! (the ones I didn't know, I probably shouldn't)

mom said...

honest to god i felt i knew everything about you, but i DID NOT know you didn't believe in the designated hitter, have we talked about this? now i might have to call dr. phil....

Scott said...

There are some large truths told in few words here. Well done. My wife also is cranky when she is hungry, she holds grudges and goes to bathroom three times a night. She is not a cat person, so that burst the similarity bubble for me.

You have to read Harry Potter. I think you would enjoy it.

Ghostbusters?! I love that movie!

magnetbabe said...

That memory is still heavily repressed. I may have to consult Dr. Phil before I write about it. Hope I didn't embarrass you too bad!

I don't know if we talked explicitly about this, but the signs are all there. You knew I preferred low-scoring games, strategy over slugging. I've always been intrigued by the double switch. Its was only a short leap to disapproving of the DH. Maybe it was a leap you didn't want to make.

magnetbabe said...

That was my intent, thanks.
"Back off man, I'm a scientist."

Anonymous said...

I agree with Scott, Harry Potter deserves a chance.

Nat -

You DO have a great rack! Just one (or two, I guess) of the reasons you are loved by many, including moi. Hugs!!
