Talk to Me Tuesday

I think I've found a new motto for life:


I don't know about you, but lately, I've been having a few too many broccoli days.  I think it's time for some ice cream.

We can talk about special needs another day.

Let's do something just for fun, ok?

Let's play a little game. 

And here's the rules:  I'm going to ask you two totally unrelated questions.  And then you're going to leave a comment with your answers to my two questions.

OK?  OK!

Here we go:

Question Number One -

Out of all the foods that you know dadgum good and well are just horrible for you and have no nutritional value to them whatsoever, what are the ones you just have to eat every now and then?


McDonald's Filet of Fish sandwiches
McDonald's sausage patties
Deep Fat Fried Mozzarella Sticks 
Corn Dogs with Mustard

Question Number Two -

What are some of your most favorite books from childhood?


The Ramona books by Beverly Cleary
Charlotte's Web
Nancy Drew books

Now it's your turn!  Leave me a comment and let's get to know each other better.

And hey, if you've been lurking around the blog, why don't you just click that little button over there and become an official follower?  Go ahead.  You know you want to....

Also, this week only, there just might be a special extra post.... so be sure to check back!
