Liked reading these to learn more about you! I love the fleece sheets too (someone else put that in their answer as well - I guess fleece sheets rule!)

I learned some things as well. I've never tried the fleece sheets, might be good for winter. What kind of question is "Would you be a pirate?" That's funny, who would come up with that, ha. I loved your answer. This cold weather is a good reason to do these memes. I'm finding there's no place I want to go or nothing I want to do when it is this cold and the ground is slippery. Actually, I'm quite bored so I put wheels on my kitchen cart today.

Interesting questions..wonder who decides on which ones get placed in the meme...great answers, a little insite for the rest of us!

Another Ray LaMontagne lover, YES!! I have both of his CD's and can listen to him over and over again. His voice is incredible!

You have the same exact taste in drinks as I do. I drink coffee, Coke (non diet) and water though.

Very fun to read more about you.

Mary said...

Ok, Linne. May will do it.

Now I need to look up meniscus.

Hi Lynne,
this post made me chuckle--I love when people post stuff like this because I'm naturally very nosy, but usually too polite to ask these questions.
I'll try to get something ready for tomorrow's blog (now that my birdJam is all loaded and off my desk -- Yea!)

Jayne said...

Fun, fun! :c)

Nice blog! I enjoy reading the memes.........

Red said...

So you tore your meniscus? How did you do that?

Mine was in combo with a severed ACL... not torn as the usual case... I had to make it really good! Sadly, mine was due to a really STUPID injury... I was playing soccer and there was no collision involved. Nope... I just went to get the ball out of bounds and grabbed it and turned around and pop pop pop... sigh :( I need a much cooler story.

I always like reading these to learn more about you, Lynne!

Cynthia said...

I was given this same task but I just couldn't do it because I had to explain...it got to be overwhelming. I like how you handled the challenge! I hope your wrist is better.
