  1. Watching the election in the UK gave me pause in that their season was so short -- weeks! -- and there are such strict limits on spending. I admit I was envious. I wonder if the problem isn't the money and that the funding comes from so few sources. At any rate, I'd love to hear Obama's take on it. After all, he's intimate but no longer involved with it.

  2. perfect reporter's question in answer to #3.

  3. What a great question for the President!

  4. I know how to make rock, paper and scissors. I can do the Spock if I have a moment. What does a lizard look like?

  5. The only clean word I would use would be shoot but the other word would probably come out instead. Nice answers.

  6. Stuck in traffic, for sure, and I had a Scooby Doo Lunchbox.

  7. I'm going to have to remember the reporter "costume." That's a good one and would be easy to do.
    A Partridge Family lunchbox, huh? I had an Osmond Brothers one. :)

  8. I so loved your smart, well-thought-out and well-written answers. I smiled and even chuckled at a few of them. Especially the second "Chocolate," hehe. Also, I am just NOW learning that your first name is Anita. I'm slow on the uptake, what can I say?!


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
