MOI, I think I'm forever just going to imagine you standing in the centre hole of a circular table, surrounded by plates and scrumptious plates of different foods - everything you've ever mentioned!! :-D

(the rest was just the starters :-))

Hey! Milk Chocolate is so a food group. I get many of my daily nutrients from it.

Oh to be in a log cabin by a fire - that is I would most like to be right this instant.

Uhum, that should read, "that is where I would most like to be right this instant."

Sheesh, me and my typos lately.

I. Four things I should be doing right now instead of learning more about MOI....

(and thinking about BBQ and prime rib).

You should add "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" to the movie list. Aldomovar's stuff is (mostly) a hoot.

I suddenly realized that my comment above could be construed as insulting. Some context may help. I am at work and was thinking "I've got a million things to do but instead I'm reading this blog and feeling vaguely guilty about it...."

sorry for the implication, I'd hate for you to think I'm here for any other reason than I'd rather be here than working right now.

Hmmm ... you only have three places you lived.

I had done this meme end of 2005, my results are here.

Bob: No worries...I wasn't insulted! I think that sometimes even when I'm posting on my OWN blog! HA!

Richard: I'm afraid I haven't lived within a wide radius of Toronto. I've seen a lot of Canada though. Where I'd rather be is similar to yours except for the lab secret hide-away! I can see you bubbling chemicals!

I remember this meme and enjoyed reading yours. You've got me craving Prime Rib now. My ultimate favorite food. Yum, yum, yum!

I'm back! 8-) As long as I've been gone you didn't expect me so soon, did you?

I loved this post; I'm not going to use it, but I'm going to pass it on to an associate who is getting into blogging - after dabbling for a year

As you are visiting the blogs each day, might you do something for me? Mention the first Gonzo Blog Carnival? It would be much appreciated.

The theme here is four, so let's see, when I had an "email interview" recently I was asked for a joke. What is the primary question for a dyslexic agnostic? Do you have an answer? Maybe you can c'mon over and offer your answer...

Brooksba: And you haven't even tried my husband's great BBQ sauce!

Bobealia: Hey, you can re-post it and we'll never know! (Why did you delete your old blog? I did that too!)

Kilroy: I;ll have to check it out more closely but all my readers just red about it here so may not be an issue!

I should know this answer! Thinkin' on it.

Meno: Oh, okay by me if it was okayed by you and Maggie! Gotta be SOME calcium in it!

Mystic Rose: Isn't she great? I want to buy DVD's of old episodes!

My favorite movies that I could see over and over and often do are North by Northwest, The Hustler, The Graduate, and Million Dollar Baby.

As far as the concert, did you have any person or group in mind?

David: Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor,
Allison Krauss, Bryan Adams, Eva Cassidy (if she were alive!)Susie Tedeski...many!

Actually, chocolate has been scientifically proven to be a vegetable. It grows in a pod that has seeds in it, much like a pea. (Snicker, snicker)

I admire some of the occupations you have had and I bet you have made a difference in many young lives.
I think chocolate should be one of the main food groups, I hear you on this one! :)

Lynclay: Thanks. I loved teaching kids and put a lot into it. I was unable to have kids so being able to have daily involvement with them was mostly a delight.

Why did they invent chocolate?!!

Oh, I got a real life stalker and I didn't want him to find my blog and know even more about me, so I went anonymous just to be safe. That is why I can't re-post.

I like the movie "Gone with the wind" too and that's why I bought the book as well. I still remember its last sentance which I think I had told myself a thousand time - "afterall, tomorrow is another day".

Bobealia: Scary stuff so good idea. Hope he gives up and moves on out out of your life!

Fennymun: Me too with the last line! And then there's, "I done know nuthin' 'bout birthin' no babies!" by Dilcey!

I love your four favorite foods! I'd be hard pressed to come up with any better than the ones you've chosen.

I actually am not a big fan of popcorn. Place a bag of microwaved butter flavored popcorn in front of me and I'll just pick at it. Place a microwaved bag of kettle corn in front of me and I will devour it.

Grizz: Kettle corn does rule..it's the PMS special when you can't decide whether cravings are sweet or salty! Thanks for visiting.
