  1. #6 interesting
    # 8 how awful! LOL
    # 30 me too ~ the movie trailer part, not the being in SA part
    #44 nasty blog troll! ; )

    I’m impressed that you managed to answer all 50 questions at 5 am.
    ‘Bout shut eye time for me. {{yawn}}

  2. Oh these 50-, 75-, or N-question questionnaires. Will I ever do one? Um…

    Love love love your #8 – any chance we’ll ever get to see the photo here?

    I do feel for those poor overworked dogs – is that ear ever gonna straighten up? – and would he be as cute if it did?

  3. I love number…(go back and look)…14. Maybe your husband is like a stuffed toy? That’s what popped into my head. Anyway, I guess that’s word association for you. Or conceptual leaps or whatever. Thanks for popping by on my blog recently. Things have been nuts, as you read. It’s good to be back online for a bit. I love hearing about people’s joy. Those pics of your dogs are fab!

  4. I also thought people were talking about some dreadful movie. For me that was 6am breakfast time at a hotel in Beijine. We slept through it and woke to hear about it and then left on our way to the airport

  5. Okay… it’s just before bedtime for me and I’m reading your answers to…well I’m not certain what…but the answers as always demonstrate you cleverness and wit. Oh, an the poor dog…perhaps he needs ear exercises or something…maybe that dog whisperer person could help. ;-)…Did you say 13 cases of wine?

  6. I love “it’s complicated” as a response … wish I’d thought of that when I was a teenager! 🙂 Your sense of humor is showing, Cindy. 🙂

    Thanks for the update on the ear. Love the pups …

    Happy Saturday …
