This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

You have me concerned about your favorite 'cuss' words.......but we seem to agree on one thing-----the color red is da'bomb! My FAVORITE color!

Artichoke and parmesan balls for breakfast????????? You're just like my girlfriend! She eats all those good appetizer stuff for breakfast.

Francine? Kathi Francine? Did I get it right????

I loved your favorite possession question...pictures. That's the one thing I would cry my eyes out if ever GOD FORBID my house would burn down. That's so sad.

Great little tidbits on you! You're a beautiful person! xxoo

Dakota Fanning?
Crap, yes. Pooh? not really your style.
Lack of domesticity- much LOL
actually to be truthful really only in the cooking area. Your cleaning laundry and shopping skills are excellent.
Ringing phone- how about a knock at the door or a cring kid?
The artichoke parmesan ball recipe I'l be needing a copy of that Would you have Mark send it to me?

katy ~ hey, dakota is probably gonna be one of the best actresses of our time.
I say "pooh" a lot more than crap.
Yeah, I can shop and wash clothes with the best of 'em.
LOL!!! Just put my 'DO NOT KNOCK' sign on the door!!

LOL, if I knew this kind of stuff sent you over the edge, I'd started doing it months ago.
So tell me, my friend...what do you think my natural hair color is? My eyes? When do you think I lost my "oh my"???

Anonymous Katy said...

I hate to break it to you but our time would be someone in their fourties or fifties. When Dakota is twenty will we even remember who she is? Will we even be able to go to the movies? Will we even be able to hear what the hell she is saying when we get to the movies?
That War of the Worlds flick, she was great in that. All she did was scream and get carried around for days by Tom Cruise.

Hair color: Brown

Color of eyes: Hazel

Lost virginity Sixteen

Now tell me your fricken middle name. It's driving me crazy because there are hardly any names that begin with the letter "F" that's for a girl. I named them all. Am I missing one? Or is it one of those weird 'made up' names?


Yes--this did send me over the edge. Now I have to go take my meds because of this! Damn it!

Blogger kathi said...

katy ~ dakota doesn't have to be our age to be an actress of our generation. She's one of the best now, I think. Have you seen her in anything else than War of the Worlds?
LOL on the picture you painted of you and I going to the movies...really looking forward to that!

deb ~ this is so much fun with you!!! Wonder how many days I can keep this up... How did you know my eyes were hazel?? And...officially it was 17. :)
