    HEY! i said in NO particular order. plus, isn’t there something in saving the best for last?

  4. James

    I can see Places 1, 4, and 10 in your very near future.

    Congratulations on your 100th post!

  5. Joe

    Okay–my mistake. I thought the categories were in no particular order and didn’t realize the lists were too. I was wondering how Mexico beat out Seattle, San Francisco, and San Clemente. ;)

  6. Holly

    yeah, it took long enough to compile all the info, so we weren’t about to spend more time actually rating each item. sorry for our laziness because you are right. mexico does not beat out seattle, san fran & san clemente (sorry dave).

  7. Mom Kewish

    Very clever l00th post! Hmmm, I think Dad and I are on…let’s see, maybe 8? We’re still a little old-fashioned and are trying to figure out how we feel about privacy vs the Internet. ??

  8. Perfectly Blended

    I totally agree!! Very clever 100th post. Let mom Kewish know, the internet isn’t that bad. Some things are still to remain private, however you can meet really COOL people through these blogs, as I have:)

    Freaks and Geeks, I loved that show, I didn’t know that many people knew about it…awesome.

  10. Holly

    melissa, if you liked Freaks & Geeks, then you’d love Undeclared.

  11. Brooke

    i can’t even finish the 100 b/c i’m so excited you solved my mystery: i have been in LOVE with the song “your house” ever since, well, ever since YOU introduced it to me in hawaii. anyhoo, i have a version of it (i think from napster) that lists the artist as bob marley… so i’ve been super confused as to why i can’t find it anywhere.

    now i’m feeling dumb for admitting all of this– do i blaspheme in the house of reggae-lovers/knowers?

  12. Brooke

    ps… i’m so addicted to segullah.

  13. Holly

    i thought you would like it! and i think you could TOTALLY write for it.
