So....I was tagged with this by Nana......a while February. I told her I'd have it done before her birthday, not fully realizing how long it would take me to get around to it. Since her birthday is TOMORROW, I figured I should go ahead and get it done. Ready?

49. Have you ever had a crush on anyone? I would delete this question, but since that would make it the "49 Questions" tag, I won't.

Oh yeah! I'm done! *happy dance* There Nana! Happy early birthday :P


  1. Neat tag! Yeah, I hate spiders too. Our basement is crawling with daddy long legs. And that's where our food pantry is! Arggg... Gross.
    Happy birthday, Nana! :)

  2. I love the princess bride too, Jo!


  3. Wow that was long! I did the tag on my blog too :)

  4. Haha! You are so funny, Jo...and such a procrastinator!

    Last night I was up till 11:30 helping Mom get things ready for school (as well and even though we aren't starting until September) and up till 12:30 reading *blushes*. You see there was this HTML questions that I had to read up on and image mapping puts you on the edge of your seat!:)

    At least your feet aren't long and skinny with your second toe longer then your first. Don't laugh. It's a family trait from Pa's side.

    Love ya! Oh and thanks for the happy birthday! Only I don't know if I can officially accept it until tomorrow :D


  5. I love Pannera Bread, too. I definitely count it as a restaurant and I happen to think 38 is plenty young, myself.
