Marshmallow World

1. This song likens fluffy clouds to marshmallows. What does the sky look like where you are today? after thirteen consecutive days without the sun--the sun is shining!

2. The lyrics refer to snowballs. Have you ever been in a snowball fight? I have--some were grudge matches, some were just fluffy fun

3. Chionophobia is fear of snow. What phobias do you have? I don't think I have any true phobias, but I have some weird perceptions about stuff

4. In 2004, Canadian school children raised money for charity by setting a new world record: the most snow angels made in 24-hour period. Have you ever participated in a fundraising stunt? nothing more than an -athon (walkathon, rockathon)

5. When marshmallows were first introduced, they were used for medicinal purposes. Specifically to soothe sore throats. What do you take when your throat is bothering you? I have discovered Halls Breezers, cool berry. Sometimes I gargle with salt water, that's an old family favorite.

6. Marshmallows are an important ingredient in the Rice Krispies Treat recipe. If you were asked to prepare something for a bake sale, what would you make? chocolate chip cookies or peanut clusters

7. Darlene played Danny Glover's wife in the Lethal Weapon movies. Do you enjoy action movies? I do

8. Darlene's father advised her to always, "shoot for the stars." Share some good advice you've received. "Never pass up an opportunity to go to the bathroom."

9. Will you be returning/have you returned any holiday gifts? I will not be returning anything--everything is PERFECT!
