  1. I love this! Of course, you know its going to take me forever to finish this.....

    1. Just let me know whenever you finish so I can check it out.

  2. Thundercats Ho! Awesome answers :) I really like when bloggers take the time to talk about themselves as a person. Even business bloggers are people too. Yay, another challenge! I might have to make your list do double duty, I would pick almost the same people.

  3. Wow, you like to go shopping on Black Friday. You are a brave,brave woman. I avoid physically walking into stores during the holiday season at all costs. Thank God for super saver shipping.

    1. It's not so much that I like black friday shopping. Its that I'd rather do that than take a bath. Now if the queston was take a long hot shower I'd be all about that. I know I'd be bored after the bath too :-)

    2. Even if it was an Epsom salt bath in a jacuzzi tub with a book (say, The Hunger Games) in one hand and a glass of vino in the other? :)

  4. Great answers! I too read the books before the movie, and I would definitely have someone else clean my house! LOL!

    Riding the #commenthour blog hopping train!

  5. This sounds like such fun to get to know other people! You get to see how many things you have in common and think about things you had completely forgotten about :)

  6. Lawdddd...this is a lot but im so down to play! Im on it! Yes I wish someone would take care of my cleaning to! My dining rm table needs special attention! Lol but its all my stuff....guess I gotta do that huh?!

  7. Kudos to you for responding to the questions from three bloggers! Wow. Definitely learned a lot of fun stuff about you... even though wild horses could not drag me into that Black Friday shopping hot mess! LOL!

  8. Wow! Three in one. I like your sense of efficiency!

    Great answers. I hope to read The Hunger Games before seeing the movie also.

  9. All three... wow! This really is a great "get to know" you game...
