Another Meme...

3. WHEN DID YOU LAST CRY? 9/11/06 listening to the montage of the morning show program I was listening to the morning of 9/11.

4. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? I used to. Its gotten progressively worse over the years. I don't have as much control as I did unless I write really slowly. The computer does a much better job at calligraphy these days than I do.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? For a million bucks...I might 'think' about it. My DD went bungee jumping last spring. She did not TELL us that she was going bungee jumping until she showed us the pictures a couple of months later...the pictures are priceless. She claims it was fun.

47. NEWEST THING YOU'VE TRIED? Silk Ribbon Embroidery - and I LOVE IT! Expensive though...

48. ONE THING YOU'D CHANGE ABOUT YOURSELF: I really, really need to exercise more - always...that sounds like a tired cliche, but its dreadfully true.

OK...Tag, you're IT!

I adored Susan Hayward! Losing my close-up vision has totally defeated the purpose of the surgery, and the reading glasses hang on my neck at all times (very fashionable, no?) Exercise appears to be a dominant theme, doesn't it?

Thanks for playing, Suze!

Very interesting, Suze! I don't think I ever knew anyone named for a movie star. Uh...and about #13...uh, so I sense a little weakness there? Hee hee. Sometimes it's just too hard to narrow the field!
