  1. Hi Melissa,

    I'm jealous that you got to work on Halloween. That would have been a great time to work on my book, 'cause it's supposed to be a little creepy! Alas, we did the whole trick-or-treat thing, and the carnival thing, then the Dawn of the Dead thing. It was fun, but completely non-productive.

  2. Rachel- I normally like handing out candy to the little trick o' treaters, but I just wasn't in the mood that night. I need to get my novel done and that was far more important to me that night, for some reason!

  3. You can't drive a stick shift?

    I have never listened to Nickleback OR Keith Urban and I aim to change that now!!!

  4. Toni - Nope, a stick shift is beyond me. I pop the clutch over and over again. I just can't get the hang of it no matter what I do. Hubby tried to teach me once, but I failed dismally.

  5. I love dressing up, too. Such fun! I'd love to wear period costume sometime, just for kicks.

  6. Yay - that was fun. I like seeing how many answers match up to see what you have in common with others. I finished mine over on my blog - good idea with the color coding, makes it easier to read!

  7. Thanks for the meme, Melissa - it was fun!!

  8. Tess, you're welcome! And you're right, Kelly, it was fun to see how our answers matched up! I love learning new things about people.

  9. Hi, I was out blogging and found your site. It certainly got my attention and interest. I was looking for swim information and even though this isn't a perfect match I enjoyed your site. Thanks for the read!


I love to hear from you!
