  1. This is great. I love hearing what people have to say about themselves. Feel the same about C & P, love Q, T and W!

  2. That's looks like fun...will do it tomorrow, manana morning!! Have book club tonight and will be spending the day reading the rest of this pinchi book. I've been lucky so far, since all the books that have been hosted, I've read but this is a newie for me!! Hope you're feeling better...take care.

    Muchos besos y cabritos,

  3. I like this. Think I'll do it too. Thanks Linda. I do have one question. You said you had knee replacement surgery. I may have to get it done in the near future as my knees are shot to hell by Arty Ritis. Yes he he sot me in the knees and hips when I had my back turned. If it is ok with you and you don't really mind would you tell me in an email how it was and what is going on now since the surgery. Pain or no pain etc. I want to know what to expect. I'm really scared to have it done.

  4. ::swaying to the music::

    This is great Linda - Totally agree on P and W has me shaking my head in agreement - we have the same trainer, eh? heehee

    Love you!

  5. I like your ABC! Beets sure taste like dirt!
    I don't know how you call it overthere, but i also don't like sprouts, those round green things. they smell like shit,hahaha!

  6. Ok, I love all of your answers EXCEPT the beet slur!!! You need to roast some young, tender golden beets or the pepperminty looking red and white chioggias. You'd love these. They are deep, wonderful, beyond good.

    Love from a beet grower and lover,

  7. Great list. Could totally relate with C & P and a slightly lesser version of T. One interruption only but that once is guaranteed,4 hours after I drift off.
    In the minority here, I love beets-they are the poor person's steak.

  8. Lulu Bean (I love this nickname)....
    How great and what fun! I just might do this, too. However, your answers are the best ~ You have a great sense of humor!!!

  9. I don't mind that you did it here instead of facebook, their note system is sort of confusing anyway. :)

    I'd protest eating beets and their dirt flavored selves any old day, especially if there were brownies to be had instead! :D


I love to hear from you. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
