Hi Janet,

I've never understood boredom either! I can entertain myself for hours, days... there's never enough time to do it all!

I'm with you on the Kraft Mac-n-cheese. Mmmm. Must be just the right blend of chemicals!!

I loooove the ocean too. There's something so reassuring and soothing with the waves and tide.

Hey, we're our own worst critics... go easy on yourself. Life's too short to be so hard on yourself!

Here via Michele's... have a good day!!

I'm wearing flip flops today! LOVE THEM! And it's only because it's nice out, not because my feet are too fat for shoes. Nope. Not at all.

1. Why do lilacs smell so good? Compared to wet dog anything smells good.
2. Why am I so attracted to the ocean? Cause you are way too scary in the woods.
3. Why am I so hard on myself? Cause i only do a half-ass job of insulting you.
4. Why do I love to take pictures? Cause you're a borg and your left eye is digital.
5. Why am I so easily amused and never bored? cause thinking causes cramps.
6. Why do I love flip flops so? RUBBER
7. Why am I such a procrastinator? I'll have to get back to you on that.
8. Why does macaroni & cheese in the blue box taste so damn good? It sucks but when you actually eat the blue box too its not so bad.
9. Why are some people so mean and self centered and others so totally giving? so we can talk about them.
10. Why do I like salty things way more than sweet things? Because they haven't invented a sweet XXXdirty martini yet.
11. Why does rain smell nice? Its not the rain its the objects they hit that release an odor - (p.s. we used to raise rain drops.)
12. Why do I love the sound of coyotes howling, off in the distance? again, scary woods thing.
13. Why do I like blogging so much? so you can fool me into commenting on this crap.

I actually answered #13 in my 13 today! Those are great questions!

I'd like to know what makes people nice or not too....some of it is taught but some of it is just the way they came in...but why? I like the template too!

Posted by colleen at March 30, 2006 5:44 PM


Agree on #1, #2, #3, #5, #7, #9, #10, #11, #12(wolf sounds), and of course #13 for me too! I wish I wasn't hard on myself too. It sucks!

1. Why do lilacs smell so good? They are one of the first to bloom in the spring and I think the strong smell awakens our senses.
2. Why am I so attracted to the ocean? Because you spent summers on Cape Cod growing up!
3. Why am I so hard on myself? Most of us are.
4. Why do I love to take pictures? I think it is the creative expression.
5. Why am I so easily amused and never bored? Got me.
6. Why do I love flip flops so? You wore them all the summers on the cape.
7. Why am I such a procrastinator? Runs in the family.
8. Why does macaroni & cheese in the blue box taste so damn good? It's the secret ingredient, some crazy chemical.
9. Why are some people so mean and self centered and others so totally giving? Personality and inherited genes and how they were bought up.
10. Why do I like salty things way more than sweet things? Taste is a weird thing.
11. Why does rain smell nice? It washes away the dirt and clears the air.
12. Why do I love the sound of coyotes howling, off in the distance? Reminds you of vampires??
13. Why do I like blogging so much? I think it is addictive, at least the computer is that way for me. And it also lets you be creative and get out some of your feelings.

Posted by Laura at March 31, 2006 8:38 AM


I'm loving on the Kraft Mac & Cheese myself. Don't know why, but that stuff is GOOD!

Posted by Isabel at March 31, 2006 5:03 PM


Ah lilacs...soon, very soon! Love that smell, that and fresh honeysuckle.
