Okay dear grrl - so here I am LOL. I have a couple of comments for you. First off, I'd really like to know about your nickname lb. You know that we have no secrets. So spill it!

Also a note about your four movies. Are you sure that those four are the ones that you would watch over and over again???? I think I can name a few others that we've discussed previously. But that's probably another list... ;-)

As much as we seem to be very alike in many areas, the favorite foods is not one LOL. Not one of those foods would be on my list.

I've enjoyed looking back over your blog for the past few months. You have a talent for writing. :-)
