OK, I played your game.

I'm in, I did it -- it was the El Charro that got me, I simply could not resist. :)

Going Like Sixty said...

I'm not lost!

What is a SAHM?

That was kinda fun wasn't it? Didn't strain your brain much.


PS: Love the Box of Doom! Great idea!

PSS: Word Verifier: Swaysi; n. the act of walking after Tower of Terrier. eg: "When I came off the Tower of Terrier, I was all swaysi.

Fried sweet corn? Oh, do tell. I shared my box idea to keep Pollys out of the Box of the Doomed. You share your fried sweet corn recipe and no body gets hurt . . . :)

Good golly, how did I miss THREE posts?

Disney World: You want to be at the top of the Tower of Terror AND YOU ARE AFRAID OF HEIGHTS? We would never ride anything together at Disney! Allow me to introduce myself, "Hello, my name is chicken..."

Butter Rum Lifesavers - I love those! I haven't thought of them in so long. Great, now I need them be Friday morning!

Government cheese - my grandmother used to get this and I thought it was the best. How funny that that is such a vivid memory?

I will be keeping my eyes open (well, not THIS weekend) for posts on the recipes for fried corn and calico potatoes.

I'm through commenting now...

I was in your van. I put cheese in your pan. I may be your weirdest fan.

Oh lawsy, the air supply in the office must not be very good. My brain cells are dying....

I did it.

We....the people
