Does Maggie know who you've been kissing in the rain?

These things are fun. Thanks for sharing.

I think you deserve 2 points for actually marching in the Rose Bowl Parade!

Josh said...

Too bad I'll probably not get the chance to march in the Rose Parade. Going to an SEC school...not a chance I'll do it with Tiger Band. On those RARE few occasions when the Rose Bowl isn't Pac-10 vs Big-10, they opt for Big-12. Oh well. At least we also have the Cotton Bowl which is as close as you can get to a BCS bowl! SEC pick #3 vs Big 12 pick #2! (Pick #'s including the champions bids in BCS, not including any at-large BCS bids).

What's up? Have you been so busy doing more stuff on this list that you don't have time to blog anymore?

Barbara said...

I loved reading your answers. TFS.

What???? You've been living in the DC area for all these years and you've never toured the White House?
