Fifty Questions

Ok, I may not be able to string three coherent thoughts together this week, but here is something I CAN do- I can answer fifty nonsensical, baseless, fluff questions. Exactly what I need, if hardly riveting reading… Courtesy of Susan at Strange Pulse, who happened to be my very first Blog friend from years ago. I love Susan.

  1. I like you, I really like you. That version of Come Thou fount of every blessing is the best. Don’t know if I have the guts to do this list. Do I really want to publicize my answer to the smoking question?

  2. jendoop- I thought hard about that too- it’s sickening to me, really, that I did it. But, the upside was, I never, ever wanted to try smoking again. 4th grade- what the crap? I stayed the night at a friends house, and her mom went out and left us with a babysitter, and the babysitter offered us cigarettes. I don’t think we did it right, and it was totally gross.

  3. Persephone was on my short list for V. What with the pomegranate tree in my yard while I was pregnant and the stint through Hades and all. Decided I was being too morbid and everybody would call her purse-eff-fone. Besides we had a V grandma. Still love the name though.

  4. OK so I’ll just not look before I leap and do it.
    If you want to see what I’ve done, like slowing down to watch a car wreck, look at my blog.

  5. Brave girl, jendoop. I’ll have to go read your answers. 🙂

    Tracy, I enjoyed your answers and learned some things, and realized I know my virtual friend better than I expected I might. Wahoo! #38 was a good answer! And I also love Come Thou Font of Every Blessing.
