You Rebecca! Have you ever answered your twenty questions? Huh, huh? Have ya? Try sitting in the hot seat! ;)

*gasp* Heather! Oh no! Don't say ME!!! No one wants to get to know little ol' me, now! (Pass that around. Yeah.)
I love that you said Mr. Darcy's bedroom. I am right there with you on that account. I think I am the only one in the world for whom Animal Vegetable Miracle did not profoundly affect my life. I think it has something to do with my aversion to cooking....

  3. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle changed my eating habits, too!

  4. Yes, Rebecca, we do want to see you answer your own questions!

  5. See Rebecca! You MUST answer your own questions!! I'd LOVE to see that!

    This was so much fun; thanks for asking me to do it.

  6. Mr. Darcy's bedroom. ::snicker:: She'll have to kick me out first. ;-)

  7. I agree, everyone needs to read Waiting for Columbus!

  8. I also read Princess Bride over and over! Great answers, Deb or Heather or Rebecca.

  9. Mr. Darcy's bedroom IS a great answer. And I also think you need to answer your own questions, Rebecca!

  10. Mr. Darcy's bedroom sounds like a good destination to me :) And I really need to get my hand on The Princess Bride. Loved the movie and I keep hearing the book is better.

  11. Actually I've only heard good things about "Waiting for Columbus." I have it on my list for this year.

    And Mr. Darcy's bedroom is an A+ answer!

  12. Oh Mr. Darcy! But Knightly ain't so bad...

    I guess I forgot to cut out Deb and put Heather's name in there. I'm sorry, Heather!
