Ha! I got tagged a couple of months ago. Some fun, huh? Thinking of all those answers ... Mine came from my son (Knownunknowns) and I learned things from his answers to being tagged that I never knew!

Thanks for indulging us, Arlene... I enjoyed your lists (especially the *laughing* part - hahahaha!)... and when you find that cure for migraines, shoot it over to the US (we're full of 'em)...

actually - nate nicked the *laughing* part from me! *LOL* but that's alright. i like the fact that we have something in common, and something good at that.

oh and yes, what nate said - cure for migraines most welcome here.
