Oh...I almost forgot...I bought a pair of Pink Flip Flops today :D

Melli said...

Welllllll that was enjoyable! You don't often do these types of meme's! Good deal! Sweet potatoes, huh? I didn't know that!

I would have had to answer the last question that I haven't DRIVEN a motorcycle - but I have gone on rides. And I would LOVE to drive a BIG BIG dump truck! And a back-hoe!

Gattina said...

What your cat still hates you ? How is that possible ? How long is he with you now ? I think it's quite a while I haven't been around ! Sorry, but with this Cyber cruise and the follow up I was quite busy !

Sweet potatoes, huh, I never heard that as a favorite food before. But I like them too.

I really enjoyed reading this Sandy. Have a wonderful day.

Good Morning Sandy.

So, you wanna be interviewed, huh? Okay....

Here are your 5 questions:

1) What nature's force/weather phenomenon is most like you? [wind, rain, sunshine, etc.]

2) What wild animal intrigues you most? And how would you describe the connection between the wild animal and yourself?

3) Of the ocean or land, which one would you most likely want to live off of to survive?

4) What color of flower is your favorite, and why?

5) Have you ever had a favorite stuffed toy? If so, describe it and tell us if you've named it.

There ya go. Have some fun! And let me know when you have it up.

[Also, if anyone else wants their 5 question interview, drop by my blog and let me know....I'll send along to you another 5]

It's an interesting meme and it's nice to learn new and interesting things about you.

It's nice to know that you rarely get angry and that it only takes a little stomping and it's over. I wish I could be as mild mannered as you.

I love blueberries too especially if its on a cheesecake. :)

I've never driven a motorcycle but I have been on one several times and the ride is always exhilarating.

Peggy said...

I saw a string of flip flop lights and thought of you! Love reading your blog.
