You must explain the Frank Sinatra thing!

I used to be afraid of bug, spiders and snakes. I'm not anymore because I just made up my mind to not be afraid of anything that I know can't hurt me. OF course I would stay away from poisonous snakes but I now kind of like snakes. They still give me the heebie jeebies but I am no longer fearful.

I like bats too!

Good meme... if I get around to it, I will try to do it today!

I agree, great meme! I hope to do this one soon as well.

Quitting smoking is something you can do after you die - so that frees up a spot for something else you can do before you dee i ee (this is supposed to be tongue in cheek, but my delivery is often too dry).

I don't think I could do this meme. Too much information to reveal all at once.

I learn more that I like about you everyday! I'll keep schtum then, you're watching Lost - right?

great meme. I might take this on this weekend.

I heart it when people use the word "asshat." I forget how awesome this word is until I hear others use it.

So does it count if I grab your hand and take you outside to watch the sunset or is this something that only works for Mr. Q?

I like this meme, I'm going to do it! You have such sweet answers . . .
