okay, so i'm confused by #88, only because i thought that there was a code for things you've done but wouldn't want to do again, and i know the likelihood of getting chicken pox again isn't high. . .but still, wouldn't want to live it twice would ya? can i get your mailing address? mctimbra@hotmail.com and i'm going to repost this. . . you might laugh at some of the things i've done :)
