    Not to those who steal my money.

  1. 9, 16, 20, 28 = same responses, scary enough.   Oh, and I'm not jealous of anyone, either.   Maybe something else, too.   I should try to wake up today.   I need a nap.  -- Robin

    I spaced and didn't use my brain.   Twas my daughter born at noon, not me.   I at least put your link yet again in mine, with my answers.  I couldn't read the meme blog link you posted without a password.  -- Robin

  5. You are too cute for words... I loved your answers... and you were much less sarcastic than Paul!  I think that the holidays have mellowed you, Dan.

    Btw, I agree about the hurting everywhere... I am a mess... it sucks.  I need my infusion so bad.... but I don't go until 1/4.

    be well,
    Dawn
