Me, me, me, me

Mir shot me, I mean tagged me for this crazy long meme. Like her, I'm picking and choosing. I may steal some of her answers just because I can't beat them.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Last night. Just because. Welcome to my world.
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING
What's handwriting?
Oh, right, right, when you use that old fashioned pen thingy, the one that doesn't do anything on the blackberry but scratch the surface. Sure, I do. Why not? It's mine, and it's all I've got.
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
It depends on which other person I was. If I was someone like me, I'd drive myself crazy. If I was someone with a lot of compassion and forgiveness and mercy, then sure. If I was someone with lots of money and decided to become a patron of writing, then of course!
7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Moi? Sarcasm? Come on. I'm from Jersey. It's the language of love.

Anything that can be used against them. Just kidding. I don't know.

Red, baby.
16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
My cattiness. I know, I know. It's terrible. It pops up now and then, and the worst part is, it's really my insecurities.
There, now you have it.

My best friend who moved to Chicago.

Breyers chocolate ice cream.

I did one of these also! How come I didn't know you were from Jersey! But I should have seen it through the sarcasm! I have the same genetic disorder. But mine has the NY strain.

For the long version, you'll have to go to Becky Miller's blog.
Sorry, Mir - I forgot to put in the hyperlink for you. I'm a terrible person. Folks, the Mir that tagged me is the Mir that comments above.
Pam, what a sweet compliment! One of the best!
Yup, Jersey. The Garden State. Land that I love.
