    Hey, Cathy: Who is Ruth? Is Ruth a “Donner”? Why is she making steaks out of Chris? Was Chris male or female? Would the gender make a difference in the quality of the meat? I just wonder…

  • music_mama says:

    How do you know if you are allergic to pecans? what happens? Please e me, I think my son may be allergic.

  • Dear Catheroo,
    Here I am bored at work and spent most of my day surfing our blog! You are very good at it and although I WISH I could keep one as religiously as you do, I don’t have the time (or the friends to bother reading “all about me :)”.

    Reading your Get To Know Me list, we could be sisters, right down to the Virgo sign (although I am on the cusp Aug 23 – not the 25th but we are close). Differences are: I don’t like crosswords, not a big tiramisu fan (apple pie my fav), I didnt vote for Kerry because I AM CANADIAN, I dont know what cowbell is perhaps you can explain it to me?, no Japanese, I’ve been told I look like Suzanne Somers (ok maybe 2o years ago), phish food (ok thats gross), I am a Calgary Vipers Fan, took me 5 years to become a stock broker, and last but not least … I wouldn’t even attempt the mensa test so good on ya!

    I have read The Mercy of Thin Air and I loved it! Have you read Amanda Quick “Second Site”?, it was great .. this is her website, she goes by a number of different names:

    Well thats about it … take care Catheroooooo!

    I have never been arrested
    i talk to myself
    I get cranky when I’m tired or hungry
    I procrastinate
    I never had braces
    I like to write song parodies

    Just a few things we share.
