You hate bananas? I think you're awesomer for it. They disgust me for the very same reasons and everyone thinks I'm weird. Well, I am. But it shouldn't be for that.

That's it. You've been officially upgraded from "pretty cool" to "Freakin' AWESOME!!!"

Torvald? I like it, but I think I may have to add it to the "poor kid" names.

Thanks for pointing me to the singles blog ward. I signed up my blog dangerously lazy (I think all but one of the links from there were actually me- the other must have been my room mate.) rather than council of worms.

So what's happening with guy number 2? Are you going to go out with him, or are you sticking pretty consistently with guy number 1?

Hey! Torvald was my great-grandfather's name and my grandfather's middle name. Grandpa's first name was Barry.

Guy #2? He's still interested and was trying to get me to stay at our house party on Saturday but I had elsewhere to be. I'm not going to knock on his door for dinner as he requested, other than that I don't know. I'm kind of weirded out by everything at the moment and I don't know what's going on.

Varant, you are welcome. Thanks Faye. I don't know how anyone can eat a banana. Of course my brothers used to smash rotten ones into my hair when I was little so I'm sure that didn't help.

Jack G,
I did laundry this weekend for the first time since November when my mother was visiting and we did my laundry together. SO, in celebration of having 60 pairs of fresh drawers....yes, I was wearing some! Except I only did two triple loads so I don't have all 60 pairs clean at the moment, but enough to enjoy some this weekend.

Excellent job with that! Everyone should click on his name and look at his blog.

PLEASE don't name my nephew 'Torvald.' It was a bad enough name when Gramps had it.

Yay! Sleepless, thanks. Very cool.

Jill, I don't know what nephew you are talking about. The question said 'kids names' it did not say what would you name your non-existent kids. And you know as well as everybody else my uterus is half dead and likely fossilized by now.

That's what the thing on my sidebar says. Yet another reason I am a disgrace to my own kind. Can't even sing.

I think I was just amusing myself with that comment about the singing mermaid. Although Welsh are supposed to be good singers and also rock stars. Singing might be overrated however. Whoa stop myself right there before I get so comical I am going to have to go into show business.

I do like that movie 'The Little Mermaid' however.

Isn't a mermaid only suppose to be able to sing under the water. They can't sing on land if I remember that 'Little Mermaid' movie right.

Nope, she sang above water, too. After she saves Eric, she sings a short reprise of her "Part of Your World" song. (I know, I've seen it too many times. ^_^ I was six when it came out.)

Yes, I am pretty sure the reason Ariel was unable to sing on land later, was she traded her voice for legs so she and the prince could fall in love. Of course, since she didn't have her voice, he didn't know she was he same girl he had already fallen in love with- thus drama and plot development.

I never liked that movie. I tend not to like movies with singing in them to begin with. I prefer the original "Little Mermaid" as written by Hans Christian Andersen, it ends with the mermaid getting rejected by the human (I don't think he's a prince) and so she is turned into seafoam and condemned to cry for her folly on the waves of the ocean forever.

And what kind of message are we sending the little girls with a movie like this? Don't ever talk but be real pretty so you can get a rich man to fall in love with you. Once you have him all tied up in marriage, then you can talk and show him who you are because it's too late for him to dump you back in the sea.

I am another voice registering her hate for all those rags-to-princess, to-heck-with-the-original-stories Disney movies. Bleagh!

And also, I have loved that Echo and the Bunnymen song since I first heard it in the 80s! Time to dig out my "Pretty in Pink" soundtrack again!

Thanks Sarah,
It took me a few days to do it too so no worries. Everyone should look at Sarah's quiz answers now too. Along with djake and Sleepless. If I weren't so lazy I'd link to them right here. But they're in the sidebar and the comments. so go to it.

Whoa, Detachable Penis. I remember that song. Do you ever forget songs you really liked?

Who did the song Bitchin' Camaro? I say Dead Milkmen, but my friend J thinks Dead Kennedys.

Bitchin Camaro is by the Dead Milkmen on the 'Big Lizard in my Backyard' album.
