    You had to be there.

    Nice to know about the eyeglasses.

    Does your blue dot look like a freckle, or a third nipple????

    (And that kiss thing... you must be a man who seriously loves his golf...)

    I had missed the tattoo story. I am so relieved you only have a dot.
    It made me cry, reading how it came about.

    Your responses to this meme were great.

    If only to read the tattoo story!
  • Blogger Joke posted at 9:33 PM, August 10, 2008  
    It is a vividly blue freckle, not a third and blue nipple.

    Hoo hoo hoo, I am falling off my chair with the tattoo story.

    (It DOES hurt! I've got the cat on my back to prove it. But it's been ten years since I got it, and lately..just lately.. I've been romancing some new ink.)

    Anne Hathaway? Why?
  • Blogger Poppy Buxom posted at 11:58 AM, August 11, 2008  
    She's Catholic and preppy. Or preppy and funny. Or Catholic and funny. Or something like that.
  • Blogger Joke posted at 1:00 PM, August 11, 2008  
    All of the above AND she reads Ayn Rand. (Ayn Rand was an abysmal writer, but I have a soft spot for girls who like her.)

    Small world--Olive also has a weakness for prosciutto.
