Ha! My brain waves worked! Muah ha ha! :)

I love these memes. I never get tired of them, but there are some on MySpace that get so immature. They repeat the same question and I find myself trimming some of those questions off when I reply to them. This one caught my eye, though.

I love the advice you gave to your high school self.

Viki said...

oh, its long weekend for you - damn, I would kill for a long weekend!

Churlita said...

I love your meme answers. Like Tara, I too love your advice to your high school self.

Tara: I never tire of memes either :-)
The problem with giving advice to your high school self is that you just know you wouldn't have listened!

Viki: Next weekend, four days off. Woo hoo!

Churlita: Thanks...those if I knew then what I know now musings.
