It's like crack. Though I eventually had to step it up to kakuro.

Nope. Not anymore.

TPBM prefers Eeyore to Tigger.

I was too sensitive a kid to deal with Eeyore, and Tigger seemed nonsensical. I liked Rabbit, Piglet and Roo.

Years ago on the playa, I saw a bike with an E.L. Kangaroo bounce by in the darkness . . . BOING . . . BOING . . . BOING . . . and idly thought jokingly to myself, "Where's Roo?"


. . . and then! . . . 5 seconds later suddenly came following, a much smaller E.L. wire Roo! :o . . .

Boing-boing-boing-boing-boing!! . . . :lol:



The person below me will tell me who their literary hero was, at about 10 years of age or younger.

Harriet from Harriet the Spy, Ramona from the Ramona series by Beverly Cleary, and Encyclopedia Brown.

TPBM will share their current literary hero(es).

Ignatius J Reilly or Burma Jones. Don't know if Ignatius count's as a "hero", but I read that book annually.

I've never really liked massages. Maybe just never had a good one.

It's pretty good in Georgia but you have to be prepared for cold in the morning, hot afternoon, cold at night this time of year.

Nope, fixing cars takes a awful lot of space. If I had more space I would probably have more cars.

I would happily try life in a lighthouse or on a mountaintop, if I had an internet connection & some sort of transport to the city once every few weeks.

The person below me would strongly prefer to live in a studio apartment in Tokyo, as long as the view of the city lights were astonishing.
