What new thing have you learned lately ?
Hmm...let's see. I have learned the difference between pisss & urinate thx to Elston. I have learned that the QoD posters have very eclectic music tastes- especially Kerowyn- (& I refuse to believe Studedude who says he can't dance). I have learned Alice & I would both go to a restaurant dressed the same ....and I have learned that Roaddog likes motorcycles...which I should have surmised by his name!

The "Jewelry fairy"is stopping by to bring you a present !! What would you want her to bring you ?
A bead for my Pandora bracelet...it's lookin' skimpy.

What was the last reason you stayed up really late ?
Insomnia...or just poor planning really. I have not had a very good schedule for the past 2 years....

Last time you stepped on a scale? Every Friday. Keeps my goal in mind so I don't let the weekend calories get out of hand.

Have you every owned a Mr Potato Head? Yep! We used to keep a few at the bar. Good conversation pieces until some prankster bored an extra hole in one & improvised with a part. Poor Mr. Potato Head...he could finally get lucky but no Mrs. Potato Head could be found....

If you could close your eyes and just blink, what food would appear in front of you ? A big spinach salad with walnuts, grapes, and chevre crumbles.
Favorite diet food ? The one above!

Least favorite diet food ? TOFU. That's just got to be an acronym for something really bad...
