75 this time

There must be a full moon or something 'cause I feel like doing something I don't normally do and that's another one o' these meme dealies. I dig Unconscious Mutterings but these aren't necessarily my cup of tea. This one, however, looked interesting. I found it at Lady Banana's.

Due to time constraints (I've got to go to work in a little while) I'm only gonna conquer the 2nd half now and finish it off mañana.

Hey Chris, you gotta read the Iliad! Think of it as a continuing LAS education thing. You thought Catcher in Rye was boring? (shakes head)

I began completing this for my own site. I got to question 15 when I looked something up. While doing that, I stumbled across a post I made in 2006. It turns out, I have already done this. Kind of. There were only 100 questions and some of them were different.

Funny though as the answers to the first 14 had the same comments as what I wrote two years ago.

#150 - bet you have!

I have too. Twice. Three times if you count the black lab I saved from drowning. I like to count dogs as people, myself.

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...
