So you know the pickin’s are slim here at the blog when I resort to these “(fill in number) questions” type posts. Hope you enjoy, as a time-waster if nothing else.

50 Questions

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?

Going to check … $103. Woo hoo!

Earth. Pretty sad if I didn’t pick it, huh?

I don’t know how to figure that out. The kids can. I’m jealous.

6. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone?

Um … see #5. I’m woefully ignorant when it comes to cellphones, and I’m not really motivated to learn more!

Since I have no idea who that might be, I don’t know.

My everyday watch is basic and silver. My ‘dressy’ watch is silver too, but more ornate. It’s from Brighton. Love that store.

sleeping peacefully

14. What did your last text message you received on your cell say?

Oy … why do you torture me with these cell phone questions? Okay, I will try to see: Nobody else came and the krishnans didn’t show up. Somebody left  and isabel said we should leave and he wouldn’t  drive around he just left. Oh my. Hadn’t read that before. Minor family crisis, dealt with earlier.

No idea — I don’t know if I’ve ever been in one.
