  1. Congrats, G! I'm soooo with you on #16 - we haven't had one of those in two years!

  2. Congrats on the award.

    Friends? sedated


  3. Well, THAT was a fun read. You are much better at answering questions than I am. Congrats on the award, it's well deserved. :)Bea

  4. LOL, doesn't it make your day when you get one? It's like third grade awards ceremony all over again!

  5. Talon: Thanks.

    Summer flew by so fast this year that I was really unable to enjoy it completely. I love summers in New England. Everything smells so...fresh!

    David: Thanks.

    I thought you might like that little twist on the Ramones. :-O

    Bea: Thanks. I actually love answering funky questions like those, it's like the ultimate humor quiz.

    T1G: Howdy do young lady!

    It actually does, because I get them so few and far between (mostly because of the blogs I visit normally don't get them, just meme's). I like Snaggletooth's blog because she's like one of those funky backyard neighbors that you had while growing up and always had a blast visiting.

  6. I have a tray that I carry my food on to either the bedroom or den, so sometimes it can be called a TV tray.

  7. And here my family thought we were the last people on the face of the earth to upgrade to a flatscreen tv. But I guess we've got you beat on number 20.

  8. I have a regular t.v. I don't watch much of it anymore as I've found other things to occupy my time.

    So in that respect, it can be called "blown".

    Everybody will have me beat on #20. :0

  9. Congrats on the award!! A complex life could put you into a perplexed mood :) Time to wake your sedated friends!

  10. Cool :)
    Your friends are sedated? On purpose, or???

  11. Apparently a lot of people like my answer to #22. Makes me wonder just a little bit...

    Kelly: Thanks. Sometimes, even a simply life can put you into a perplexed mood as well.

    And yes, it may be time to wake my sedated friends, after all, a sedated government employee is a happy camper.

    R.K.: Sometimes on purpose, because you know us governmental employees can get extremely bored with the work we do, so much so that it becomes a great....tranquilzer.

  12. if your favourite place to eat is off a tray, you need to get out more

  13. So very true....however, with money being the way it is, the last time I actually got to eat out at a sitdown restaurant was the beginning of September...

    Sometimes it's tough not having a life.

  14. hehe Was it hard just coming up with one word being as prolific as you are? Love some of those one words...friends:sedated; life:complex(how true! great choice); color:rainbow.....
    How are you doing with yesterday's/today's snow? We were down to Old Lyme/Saybrook yesterday but headed north before it started in earnest. Getting my mosaics ready now. The beach was freakin' cold! ~Jeanne

  15. Believe it or not, it actually was difficult, as this type of thing lends itself to all kinds of creative words, clean or otherwise.

    Yeah, we got whacked with about a foot of snow here in Newington. Snow started sometime after nine and it took us about an hour or so to dig out. Haven't ventured out yet to see what the rest of the town looks like, but fortunately the snow is mostly powder.


Go on, give me your best shot. I can take it. If I couldn't, I wouldn't have created this wonderful little blog that you decided to grace with your presence today.

About that comment moderation thingy: While yes, it does say up above I can take it, I only use it to prevent the occasional miscreant from leaving thoughtless and/or clueless comments.

So remember, all of your comments are greatly appreciated and all answers will be given that personal touch that you come to expect and enjoy.
