Nice! Yes, I will do it, in a day or two!!

Kristen said...

Thanks for playing. Really enjoyed reading your answers:)

LynS said...

Oh, this is hard. It requires me to reveal things about myself. I'll have to work up to doing it!

Should have introduced you to my boyfriend at WWKIP (he was there for like 5 seconds before he scuttled off). He perhaps could have given you some pointers in Danish. I'm trying the one minute Danish podcast thing but its a bit hard. But then reading it is another thing entirely!!

Bells said...

oh so many things to comment on but I'm just going to stick with one.

Wool and truffles (not the chocolate ones). BEST ANSWER EVER!
