I thought this was going to be an actual quiz.

And I was terrified of getting Guy Fieri or Sandra Lee.

The first week I lived in Sydney, I bought a painting at a coffeeshop near where I lived. It was $95 AUD (about $50 USD at the time). I was broke - starting grad school - but I had to have it. It's a stylized vase of flowers - orange and white with a bit of yellow on a cobalt blue background. I love it, and it hangs in my living room today.

I have quite a bit of my daughter's work framed and displayed at home and in my cubicle at work. It's great watching her skill develop!

This post was a plate of shrimp moment for me. A friend introduced me to the Peach Lambic this weekend, and i pick up a couple of bottles of the raspberry for us today on my lunch hour. I may use the raspberry in floats instead of drinking it!

Last friday I spent about 3 hours ironing a stack of shirts. I iron about twice a month, but I usually do several hours (and many, many outfits) at a time. One session will be pants and skrts, the next shirts. I also iron my pillowcases, because they are nice embroidered ones. My current iron is one my fiance bought - very lightweight and cheap. I've been looking to trade up.

Just ripped out the carpet in my living/dining room, and the cats leave shoals of fur everywhere. Would love to have this for quick clean ups!

Last week we had a wild turkey run through our back yard. we live near woods, but it was a first. What was even more surprising was that it had no problem jumping fences, and seemed very comfy touring our neighbor's backyards.

My grandpa haunted our house after he died, but in a friendly way. Marie, I believe you when you say your apartment is haunted, but you have a right to live there in peace. Tell the ghost it must live by your rules while you look into your legal options. You may find that things will calm down and you won't need to call 'ghostbusters' or look into moving.

BTW, when you leave a cemetary, you should always tell the locals to stay put so that you don't bring home any stray spirits.

I have two cats that shed like mad, a fiance who insists on wearing his work shoes in the house, and wall to wall carpet that I haven't had the time to rip out yet. Our Fantom died over a year ago -probably from overwork - and our moms are tired of us asking to borrow their vacuums. I think that they are both secretly afraid that their vaccums with meet the smae fates.
