Randomness…

Posted on: December 11, 2007

I have ganked this from Kelly’s blog (Who, by the way, is completely amusing.  You should go check her out sometime!) because I am completely incapable of original thought these days.  😉

1. Elaborate on your default icon:
At first it was a donkey, because it reminded me of the Hubbster.  Not that I think the Hubbster is an ass — he just happens to like donkeys! 

2. What’s your current relationship status?
Married.

3. Ever have a near-death experience?
Apparently, when I was just a wee one, my grandmother placed a poisonous plant in my path and I managed to consume some of it.  That warranted a trip to the ER so I could get my stomach pumped.   Does that count?

4. Name an obvious quality you have:
Sometimes the filter between my brain and my mouth is faulty.

Nah.  I’m perfectly happy with the fella I’ve got.

Ugh.  Several years ago a mother of one of my friends kept INSISTING that I looked like Callista Flockhart.   gag!
