  • The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.

  • Each player answers the questions about himself or herself.

I tag the following:



  1. Here I am, with a million things to do. I was looking for a Bible verse (you know as papists we suck at the Bible!) and found it. (for the record Jeremiah 20- you duped me Lord...)

    Then instead of doing my work, I looked at my reader and saw I had 135 things to read. OH NOES says Lolzfran.

    Then I see the newest post in the whole reader and it is from you.

    Deep sigh.

    I stepped in it. I'll clean it.


  2. You tagged me Shuck and I let myself be tagged...


  3. I shall get to my tag later today kind sir. Thanks for thinking of me.
