Quiz: 38 Questions

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you said? If I could remember that, I wouldn't be quite as feeble-minded as I am!

5 See my daughter achieve a happy, successful lifestyle. Incidentally, she has my permission to do anything to her hair that she wants, even if it means dying it green or shaving it all off.

35. What do you put on your hamburgers? Here's what I do with burgers. I grill the patty on a George Foreman grill. I drop it onto a plate and eat it like a steak. I might have onions with it. I might sprinkle chili powder or curry powder on it if it's been frozen for a while.

Perhaps this could be a pre-dating list of questions...to test for compatibility...whether or not somenone eats raw hot dogs is pretty important! Don't think my brain has the stamina to answer all those questions...would take me a month. But loved reading your answers and as always enjoyed your "square peg" sense of humor.

Hi Kerry:

Thanks for visiting and commenting!

BTW, I worked with a woman who ate raw bacon when she was a girl. She never got sick, but she never did it as an adult.
