  1. That was cute.

    (And thanks for the chore) **wink**

  2. "11. Snow! Love it or dread it? Love it, but I also don't have to live in it."

    75 degrees in November. Snow? What the heck is that? And they say global warming is a myth. Yeah. Right.

  3. I liked this one. Might even do it myself in a few days even though you didn't tag me. It will fit right in with my tales of the year I spent portraying the big fat lair as a mall santa.

  4. No more tagging! I still haven't done the one Babe tagged me on. LOL

  5. Just because you get tagged...doesn't mean you really have to do it...right?
    What's the worst thing that could happen? :)
