  1. A Few Minutes with Andy Says:

    links from TechnoratiI got this from my second cousin’s Terry’s blog (Alone on a Limb) who got it from his sister’ Carol’s (The Median Sib) blog. She got it from their younger sister Beth’s (Blue Star Chronicles) site. Okay, I am game… (Copy and paste the list below. Highlight the things you have done. And delete my green comments, of course.)

  2. Jane Says:

    I learned a lot about you reading this…..candlelight baths, huh??
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Terry Says:

    I always feel a little silly when I post one of these things, but I have to admit I enjoy reading them. Of course I occasionally want to join the late great Lewis Grizzard in his famous refrain: “I don’t believe I’d a’ told that.” -)

  4. Joan Says:

    Me, too, Terry. I always hesitate to do one of these things and get into much too much detail before I’m through; but I really enjoy reading other people’s attempts (especially when I know those other people.)

  5. carol Says:

    Terry and Joan – you must think I revealed too much! I figure everyone knows I’m not perfect – and I’ve done some things I wish I hadn’t done. However, it does no good to lie about the past or pretend it didn’t happen.

  6. carol Says:

    By the way, I love that Lewis Grizzard joke!

  7. Daniel Says:

    I couldn’t understand some parts of this article ve Done – A Meme at The Median Sib, but I guess I just need to check some more resources regarding this, because it sounds interesting.
