101 Most Shocking Moments of 2009

Remember:
  • For anonymity purposes I sometimes refer to a person simply as he or she. Thus, not all the he's or she's are the same person.

  • Also, 10 gold stars for each time you make the list or something on the list relates directly to you. Feel free to argue your case on how an item relates to you in the comment section provided below. :)

  • I tried to put each moment in its proper order, with the absolute most shocking moment as number one and so on ... But it gets really complicated, so they are in the general location of where they should fall. Although, the top 20 are pretty concrete.

  • I had a really difficult time not putting exclamation points at the end of all of these. :) Shocking moments deserve exclamation points, however, over-used exclamation points defeat the purpose of an exclamation point in the first place. :)

The following relate to me in some way, although are not necessarily about me: Number 82, Number 79, Number 71, Number 62, Number 61, Number 58, Number 57, Number 25. However, most depressingly, nothing on this list appears to be about me. More evidence that you like Adam and Chance more than me. :-)

Allison and Josh said...

I think I am indirectly in number 61! Smallville also used to be my favorite show(I still love Tom Welling forever and always) but The Office has since become my number 1 show!!

Toni said...

I'm kind of shocked that the Office/Smallville was not number one!! And I'm totally with you on the patience. It is a cirtue that I do not posess in any small amount. At all. And number 2. I'm not sure who or what you're talking about specifically, but I relate! Love you!

Chance said...

The following list is my connection to your most shocking list:
91. I was gone
78. I helped with increasing the fear of deer by telling you that you have to hit them head on
72. I told you not to get a haircut
63. Settlers, how did we not play?
46. Traveled to N.M.
37. I am ornery
30. It was while on the way back from NM that Wilson drove 60 miles
18. You thought it was me that sent the M&M's, that was more funny than shocking
10. I am getting my Master's and so can you
4. And still not dating Chance, haha
1.I would be most shocked of it if I knew what it was
GRAND TOTAL: 110 points!!

and Mike...sorry, life is hard.

Debbie said...

I only want to claim #31 and #4 - #31 you were visiting my family and #4 because, gee, me neither. On second thought, I'd like to claim #35 as well - just because it happened at the same time my weird relationship stuff was happening.

:-)

Avree said...

I don't know that any of these refer to me. Thanks a lot. But I'm happy to see Rick on your needs to be kicked list...even though I actually like him...just not his actions.

Meg said...

The only one I can make be remotely related to me is #60: Lil's good friend was living on the island, couldn't go home for three days, didn't know if her house was even still there for a while, and finally only got to go in to take out her stuff. Okay, maybe it relates more to Lil than me, but Lil is my sister. :-)

Allred Mom said...

#8...I told you you'd get a text...I'll take gold stars for that one! :)
#58...since I grew up 15 miles from that place, I think I deserve stars...
#57...yes...since Mustang closed, they had to open another just a few miles away!

And, I will say, that there is a certain someone that will get TONS of gold stars, if they will accept that they are the main subject in most of these! lol
