Loved the meme. I'm not a big fan of liver myself. YUCK! I used to watch the Cosby show all the time too! I think I watched way too much television as a kid. ;)

what? me?!? ok, i'll do it, but it may be like wednesday or november before i get to it...

in general, i hate liver, too, but like once every three years, I HAVE to have it. isn't that AWFUL?

Ale said...

who is "yo mamma"?

also, i would totally pair up with you for a go at the race... the fact that we are blog friends who have never met in real life could be our gimmick to get through casting...

ML said...

I'm so glad you did the meme! Great stuff! I love liver, though :)

Anonymous said...

I just want to note that your three things not to listen to all start with "tele". Can I guess that you're not a fan of long-distance relationships? :)

i will NEVER understand the liver thing.

"yo momma," ale, is the woman who birthed you. i met her. she's a lovely woman.

ah, the amazing race. there has been such talk of a "bloggers' edition" (why not? they did family!) we should all totally get in on that one.

well lia, my boyfriend, H, pretty much lives as far west as you can get from chicago in the continental u.s. and it's been more than a year, so i think i'm pretty ok with tele-relationships. maybe that's the only one?

Heh, I shouldn't say this but...I love to read other people's's like peeking a bit more into their lives.

When I used to eat meat, man, I used to love chicken liver pate. Loads of cholesterol and flavour.
