I've no interest in Asia either, and I've been there! Never want to return!

I call twinsies on #9. Wish I'd channeled you on #27

And re #22--holy hell, YES!! WTH.

Re #32--never, EVER come live near me. Blinkers are apparently unnecessary. I've given up using them consistently, too.

36 uh, nope on both thx

One of the most interesting things about these memes are the similar answers. We are all very different people all over the country, doing different things, but we have the same fears and concerns. It is humbling, really, and it confirms our humanity and connectedness.

Vicki said...

We both have the same answer to several of the questions.

Forgot to say:

OMG! You met Stephen King? Wow!

I used to think I wanted to visit China...the one Big Bird showed us when he had a prime time special (probably late 80s?). It was beautiful. Last year I read a more recent travel journal and all I can say is that the desire died. Completely. No chance of it coming back.

My son would be eating his heart out over your time with Stephen King. He is a huge fan.

Oh gawd....maggoty food! Nothing skeeves me out worse than maggots.

As Country Dew pointed out, it is amazing that for all our different lives, situations, and even political leanings...we continue to be just as alike as we are different.

Great answers and I can't believe you met Stephen King,awesome sauce. A sister of mine recently met Harry Potter and when she posted the picture people asked if she had photo shopped... hahaha

#24--
No doubt you have friends that you make plans with and keep them tied up. It takes a lot of time with friends, I suppose.
