You know I'm in a dungeon-throwing-in mood when my answers are this succinct (hat tip to Princess Patti).

Hey Baby Boy! Don't forget the sunblock.
Love, Mimi

Where do you get these questions? I love them! Can I "borrow" them and put in my own answers? So fun!

Mimi Lenox said...

Bud - He is having a grand time in the sand.

Mimi Lenox said...

Lorielle - Go to every Sunday and you'll have a new set of questions. Certainly, you may "borrow" these. Be sure to sign the Mr. Linky at the site so that others can read your answers. Have fun.

The Gal Herself said...

Ah, someone else who doesn't romanticize her high school years!

Starrlight said...

LOL on the marriage one. Talk about throwing someone into a dungeon :P

I am probably just being matrimonially snarky cause I am about to host my BFF who is in the process of leaving her drunk husband. Bleh.

Mimi Lenox said...

Thom - He was an incredible influence in my life.

Mimi Lenox said...

Mejis - Ain't it the truth!

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - I'm a bit envious (!) but my time will come shortly. Yippee!

Mimi Lenox said...

Mojo - Why, thank you. Just doing my job here.

Mimi Lenox said...

Debbie - I've just had the birds and bees talk with Homer. He had to go lie down for awhile (I used graphic illustrations) but he'll be fine by the weekend.
Tomorrow we cover birth control.
(**Mimi searches frantically for's been a while)

But never fear! Homer will be ready.
So to speak.

Mimi Lenox said...

Duchess - Yours were awesome. Thanks for stopping by.

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - Oh was painful at times. And hysterical now that I think about it. More painful. I think I just want to stop thinking about it.

Linda said...

I'm sorry, I couldn't get past that first picture of the sponge cake with the whipped cream. I was drooling so much, I shorted out the keyboard at home and had to post this from work!

Mimi Lenox said...

Starr - Just a few I'd like to hog tie in the dungeon for my evil purposes.....

Drunken husbands. Sorry for your BFF. Not cool. She must be going through a lot. How kind of you to help though.

Mimi Lenox said...

Linda - I've heard some excuses in my day....

Starrlight said...

It's payback. When my ex and I split she was there for me 100%. Worked out well too since Kidlet forgot her key and was sitting in the doorway. Doofus child that she is.

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

"And find a partner who makes you laugh"... great advice!

You missin' baby boy? :(

Travis said...

Lorielle said...

Awesome! I will have to do this every week now, it's fun! Thanks!
