Haha, I just did this meme today, and am stealing your "am I spoiled" one, too!

I loved your answer for religion, and your quote!

I love all your answers! I didn't think you had an accent at all, I have to admit.

I"m very impressed you can read while walking. Quite a talent.

BTW, did you watch GG last night? What the hell? I'm so disappointed in Rory. And what the hell is up with Luke? Can Lorelai just dump him and get it over with? And I'm so sad Amy Sherman Palladino isn't going to be back next year, but this year's been kind of lame, like she's not that into it, so maybe it'll be o.k., but if this starts to suck, then what? Huh?

Wow. Sorry about that.

It is quite the little talent.

And Suzan, I agree with your assessment of GG.

Although, I was happy that Rory chewed Logan's father a new one.

Right before Luke called Lorelei, my husband said, "If he calls Lorelei for help, I'm gonna puke."
I said, "I'll go get a barf bag, 'cause that's where this is going."

He's done watching. I'm still hooked, but somewhat abashedly.

Is reading while walking unusual? I can do that, too! I do it in the halls at work all the time (always reading, always billing). Angry Boy likes to do that, too. (Although I guess he's not technically "reading.")

And, no, you don't have the typical accent of someone from your neighborhood.

I love that we share that talent!

We must do zoo. Soon!
