Answering your questions

First, I'm going to answer some questions.

*We have twelve good reasons not to keep the little kitty boy we found this weekend: eight cats, two rabbits, one sugar glider, and a little Brooklyn townhouse that barely contains them all. If we had a hundred acres in the country, we'd be filling that--bat houses for L'Ailee's wind-energy farm refugees! Patches of bamboo for my panda family! And cats, cats, and more cats!

*And yes, we know we're being a stereotypical lesbian couple. I know why Ellie Mae Clampett looked like that yet was a "spinster", sure enough...she ran off with Miss Jane Hathaway when the Beverly Hillbillies series ended. ;-)

*"Milhouse" and I broke up because he was extremely jealous (he thought I was sleeping with my best friend! She's bi, too, but NOTHING was going to happen.), and because he was going to Paris to study art.

*How far did we go? Well, let's just say I always loved Milhouse's sense of fairness and equality and his commitment to fair play, and leave it at that.

And I was tagged for this meme by WriterMom. Okay, I'll bite.

1. Hum a jingle of which you know all the words. LOUDER. (<--calm down!) Now write it down so we can remember it too.

"My bologna has a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R/My bologna has a second name, it's M-A-Y-E-R/Oh, I love to eat it everyday, and if you ask me why, I'll say/'Cause Oscar Mayer has a way with B-O-L-O-G-N-A." (And I don't even eat bologna!)

2. As a kid, you played a board game over and over. And you cheated. What was it?

I didn't cheat! I was simply fulfilling my duties as the banker in Monopoly! Milhouse and my brother Dorkfish would have made those no-interest loans to themselves, too, if they'd thought of it!

3.What was the name of a song you have been singing the incorrect words to all these years. What were you singing, and what should you be singing?

Honestly, I don't sing unless I'm sure I know the lyrics.

4. What embarrasing childhood story do your parents bring out just to mess with you for their own amusement?

The fact that I couldn't say "juice" properly for a while, and so would ask for "douche."

I ain't taggin' nobody, but if you do this, let me know!

Man, I think your folks owe you big for letting you wander around saying douche, especially in the context of a drink. I mean, teach you it was all milk or something if they had too! But that's just me... ;) said...

Very cute :) I always love reading these.

Twelve good reasons........ is reason enough for me!

At first I just couldn't understand why you couldn't keep him, and being the world's greatest advocate for "save the animals", it was breaking my heart.

Now, I understand and love you both more than ever!
