Getting to Know You

(originally published on LiveJournal)
My friend Wendy sent me one of those “Getting to Know You” email questionnaires. I don’t usually reply to them, mostly because I don’t have the time to read what the people I would send it to would write. But I decided it’s been a long time since I posted and it’s an easy way to post without mentioning various Baby Bodily Fluids. (Coming next post!)
1. What time did you get up this morning?
2. Diamonds or pearls?
I prefer sapphires, which are in the same family as diamonds, so, diamonds

Rent. Loved it! Bought the DVD.

Gilmore Girls

The same meal I have everyday. Total cereal and tea with 2T of sugar.
