Happy Saturday! I hope everyone who had bad weather is seeing a bit of sunshine and warmer temps.

Blowing like all get out here and Shredder decided to wake me up earlier than I wanted to, considering I didn't sleep that great last night.


So before I end up in OZ let’s get right to . . . .

Today's Questions:

Extra Credit Question:

What attribute(s) would best describe you?


Just for Fun:

If I had a dollar for every time _____________________, I’d be the wealthiest person in the world.

I can't really answer this as Super Bowl Sunday doesn't occur here in Australia - most years I don't even have a clue when it is on. This year was the first year I watched any of it (just a few minutes) - and absolutely nothing unusual or funny happened to me!

Bonus Question:

When it comes to people who are always running late, it’s all I can do not to bop them over the head with my handbag when they finally turn up.


Extra Credit Question:

What attribute(s) would best describe you? Hmmm... loyal, tenacious (when I want to be), good sense of humour.


Just for Fun:

If I had a dollar for every time I've eaten a square of chocolate, I’d be the wealthiest person in the world (not to mention quite a few pounds slimmer!!)

Have a great weekend!

Good morning Joy and Shredder!

What is the most unusual or funny thing that has ever happened to you on Super Bowl Sunday?

I had a minor wardrobe malfunction of my own and so missed seeing Janet Jackson's moment of Superbowl fame. Mine was much less interesting, I was just at the sink because I had to clean some spilled chip dip off my t-shirt.

Bonus Question:

When it comes to people who ________________, it’s all I can do not to _________________.

When it somes to people who say things that directly contradicts something else they posted a month ago, it's all I can do to not post the evidence. I sure wish that wasn't against TOS!

Extra Credit Question:

What attribute(s) would best describe you?

Content with where I am in life, and enjoying the passage of time. That's today, of course. Tomorrow may be different.

Just for Fun:

If I had a dollar for every time _____________________, I’d be the wealthiest person in the world.

If I had a dollar for every time I got the NIQ wrong....

Actually moved to the US lock stock and barrel. Flew in that day.

When it comes to people who are stupid, it’s all I can do not to keep my cool.

Extra Credit Question:

What attribute(s) would best describe you?

Self effacing, devastatingly handsome with poor eyesight. And modest.


Just for Fun:

If I had a dollar for every time I turned the TV on only to see the advertisments, I’d be the wealthiest person in the world.
