Thrice Tagged By Tish

I was tagged a couple of weeks ago by Tish -- no, I'm not all that good at playing blog-tag. By the time I do my bit and try to catch anyone, all the other kids have gotten bored and gone home and I'm running around the playground by myself. I kind of liked this particular tag because I haven't played "MeMe Monday" in several weeks, which helps me to grow my "101 Things About Me List" (which also hasn't been built upon for weeks)

Franny said...

OMG, I just read the funniest thing today! Someone wrote, get this, that Mark has a quick temper! LMFAO, what a riot! (Not that I don't believe you, but you're just not the "FEAR MY WRATH" type...I think...)

Perhaps Francine keeps you in line? Maybe you recognize a superior force? It's certainly like that at MY house!

Anyhow, I accept your challenge, and raise you $5.00...

Gwen said...

Hmmm, well I will accept the challenge but I am not going to say thank-you. On the upside - I am not going to call you a dumbass either. :)

I enjoyed it, the BNL are fab and anyone who quotes the circus is OK in my book.
