Well, I sure hope you don't get a mid-April snowstorm, Skunky. That's so sad about #7!:)

#2 is eliciting an awful lot of burned food answers, VE. No coffee?! I'd be insane without my coffee. The 70s does explain a lot, but the jury is apparently still out on the cell phone thing.:)

puerileuwaite said...

1. What one thing is, to you, a surefire sign that Spring has arrived?

The urge to blog and comment, returns. Also, the urge to frolic naked in the park becomes overwhelming.

2. Do you burn scented candles in your home?

Only when the sacrifice to Lucifer is > 100 lbs. Otherwise I go with the more economic, unscented variety.

3. Have you ever read a self-help book?

Yes. In fact I just read one on how to navigate through the self-checkouts at Walmart.

4. What was the last movie you saw?

"I Am Ledger". I thought I was going to watch the Will Smith pic, but instead this one was a 3-hour documentary on Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.

5. Do you ever drink flavored coffees?

Hopefully not since they caught that jerk who was peeing in the coffeepot.

6. For snacks, do you prefer something sweet or salty?

I prefer something I can quickly swipe from a kid at a t-ball game.

7. What color or design are your dishes?

The HMS Titanic Collection. Not only is it regal, but it stands up to water extremely well.

8. What's your favorite soap?

Anything on a rope.

9. What was the last article of clothing you bought?

A g-string that converts into granny panties simply by unzipping the pouch.

10. Do you believe that cell phone usage is really rotting our brains out?

That is giving many people the benefit of the doubt, to start with.

Serena Joy said...

Yep, Pinks, no jacket means Spring has sprung for sure. No scented candles? For some reason, I'd have thought you'd love them. #8 - ain't that the truth.:)

Puggy, are you saying that one can't frolic naked in the park BEFORE Spring? I find your answer to #2 interesting. I've heard rumors that Lucifer actually appreciates a nice scent. #9 - and why, pray tell, does a Pug need granny panties? Hmmmm.:)

Ooooh, yes, G -- robins! I KNEW Spring was coming when I spotted the first robin a couple of weeks ago. #2 -- I like Patchouli, too. I have a nice Patchouli candle that someone sent me. #7 - seasonal? So what is your seasonal Spring pattern? #8 - Dial breaks my skin out. Of course, I'm not a burly he-man type.:D

You're only in second grade? Geez, I thought you were older than that.:-)

I hear 'ya, Sling. Green buds are so wonderful that they can make your heart skip a beat. #4 - I didn't see Beowulf, but I've heard it was major suckage. #6 - Donuts?! I wouldn't have taken you for a donut man.:) I think you probably have a point with #10.

Charles said...

Only commenting on the cell usage. It doesn't rot brains, the frequency is in the range of microwaves, so it cooks brains. Then they are ready to eat. :S

Serena Joy said...

The thought of cooked brains reminds me of mad scientists. Run!:D
