Tag, you're it!! 
Note: I am a big believer in bending the rules so you don't HAVE to do this.  But it would be fun.


  1. Ooh thanks for picking me! I love playing these games! Now I have something to amuse myself with during work tonight.... <_<... >_>...

    You know what might be cool? And this might even be what you're talking about, but I haven't heard of it yet. A compilation of flash fiction. How fun would that be? To hear the voices of so many different writers in one volume, pruned and distilled down to the most passionate passions of their hearts. If you've found something like that, let me know because I want in on it too!

  2. I love your answers, Marsha!! And thank you, thank you, thank you for tagging me on this!! I will get to it once I get back from my blog break. :)

    Have a great day!!!

  3. Seems like we'd like to be the same place in 5 years! See you there! :)

    Thanks for the tag :)

  4. Thanks! Your #2 and #5 especially resonate with me. Though I'd choose different summer and winter home places. Same idea.


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
