Allergies to sulfa must be hereditary (sp?). Yes, I'm home. No trips to Berzerkistan on the horizon. Kisses and love!

laurie said...

i'll be honest with you. i saw a 60-question meme and i thought, no way.

but you were great!

just impatient and witty and brisk enough with some of the questions to make me smile. and given that boscoe got me up at 1:40 a.m. and i didn't get back to sleep until, oh, 3 or so, and it's now only 6, it takes a lot to make me smile just now.

Amy said...

I'm going to give you the 30X Family Feud cheer, "Good answer, good answer."

Kaycie said...

Number 54 is my life. Without the job. Lucky me.

Nice meme.

Sandy said...

I liked this. Just the right amount of acerbic wit - must be all the dog dander!

Kimberly said...

What a brilliant meme! I haven't done one since...mmm...last year sometime. I may just nab this one.

Akelamalu said...

Love reading your answers. It would hurt my brain at the moment so I'm not doing it! :)

Happy in the Abyss said...

Ahh, Bubba! What a lovely bird. And he was so calm and demure with all of your blood squirting all over the kitchen. Good times...thanks for the memories.

Diana said...

All things I love knowing about you, especially the last. That's gotta be a good story.

janet said...

you did me proud, hon!

i loved reading these.

aims said...

How many people do you think scrolled back to see what #32 was?

Rudee said...

I have a beautiful crate and barrel wine carafe in the backseat of my car (a christmas gift I'm too lazy to take in the house). One never knows when that'll come in handy.

Eileen said...

I really liked this, it was fun to read. Was it fun to do?

Sweet Irene said...

I think I may steal this one from you because it is just possible that I don't know what to write about today.

Jen said...

LOL, I'm allergic to sulfa, too. I'd never met anyone else with that allergy, but I hear it's kinda common.

Great little meme, if I ever get to blogging again, I may borrow it.

Robin (the PENSIEVE one) said...

I kinda have a crush on you right now...for your answers to (let me go back and look...):

#1 (mine rides around, too...til I remember from the smell, it's "there")

#9 (but I use the word "damn")

#46, I'm allergic to the last two, too (and this is where I "blushed" you--blog + crush)

#55 (100% agree)

#58 (made me snort, but just a little)

Ok...I'm heading out before you think I'm stalkin' ;).
