few months ago - I get the same crud every year

12. Are you happy right now?
um, I wouldn't say happy. I'd say okay.

13. What did you say last?
"Tonight was not my night" (to the creepy guy in the dressing room at Old Navy, who "mistakes" all mothers as sisters of their daughters, and tells you "Please let me know if you need a smaller size," and then kind of leers at you - does anybody know who I'm talking about??) I was trying on bathing suits - need I say more?

14. Who came over last?
Laura Beth and Molly

16. Have your brothers or sisters ever told you that you were adopted?
no - I was the practical joker and did things far worse than telling Joe he was adopted - like stuffing him in the fireplace - NOT while it was lit - and forcing him to eat "cupcakes" made out of flour and water (separate incidents, not at the same time)

25. Who was the principal of your high school?
Ms. Bynum - everybody gave her a hard time, but I really liked her

26. Has your house ever been TPd?
no, but it's been leafed by Michael's high schoolers - pretty annoying - I think it was paper toweled, too, and they stuck maxi pads to the windows of Michael's car, which was pretty funny, but gross and sticky

27. What do you think of when you hear the word 'meow'?
is this a trick question?

28. What are you listening to right now?
the heater that just turned on, my typing

29. Drinkin?

OH MY GOSH. I SO know the guy at Old Navy!!!! He creeps me out so bad that I never go there alone and always make Dave come with me into the handicapped dressing room with both kids. Not even joking.

And thank you, I knew I wasn't alone in the pickle thing.
