Harper's and the Atlantic Monthly.

5. Favorite Smells?

12. Do You Drive Fast?

If the kids aren't with me? Oh yeah.

13. Do You Sleep With a Stuffed Animal?

Yes her name is Piper.

14. Storms—Cool or Scary?

Cool unless it's a tornado which is only cool on t.v.

15. What Was Your First Car?

Toyota Camry (which I bet many of my Farmington friends remember....)

16. Favorite Drink?Alcoholic: margaritas, wine nonalcoholic: coffee and Mexican Cokes.

17. Finish This Statement—“If I Had the Time, I Would…... really perfect my knitting.

Hey, thanks! :). I like mysteries too. Also, Edy's Ice Cream Sandwich sounds intriguing.

Ginger As in Green Tea... said...

Of course E means Ernesto. Thank you that was interesting! Lolabola, we are at my mom's house until we get my money in from school. Jessica, I love mysteries to relax too and right now I"m just too drained to read the stuff I need to be reading. Sigh. And the ice cream sandwich is great. It sounds like it would be blah but it's so not.
