Bonnie, great answers, see one meme and I've learned more about you than from a dozen posts, thank you dear girl.
Warm hugs,

Pardon my ignorance but, what's a meme? Don't forget "The Mod Squad" and "It Takes a Thief"
Love your blog,

LOL! I have the same question, SS.

I love these survey thingies--I have a weakness for them, myself. You can learn so much about people from them. -- Erica

I hope you do write a stage play some day, Bonnie - I'm sure it would be a big hit!

Great meme!


Bonnie said...

Paul - Yes, answering these type of questions does show a different side. You're quite welcome.

SS - The original definition of a meme is a thought or idea that travels through the culture in a manner that suggests a life of its own. In blog parlence, it means one of the Q&A lists.

I do remember those shows, along with I Love Lucy, The Beverly Hillbillies, the Addams Family, Dobie Gillis, and so many more.

Erica - Indeed you can. If you are so inclined, please help yourself.

BTW, since I'm not part of MySpace, I can't comment on your blog. But I'm often inclined. I love your writing.

Reesa - Thanks! I think it's an intiguing concept that would be inexpensive to produce and easy to stage. I don't want to give away anything here, but I'd love to get it on paper.

Dear Bonnie,

You are a wise woman, no doubt about that.

Great answers Bonnie. By the way, even guys don't know why they like gadgets so much, and if any guy says otherwise he is only covering.

Great post.

Kallisto said...

Wonderful answers, Bonnie! I loved all those old shows, does it say something that it is easier to remember them than shows that have been on more recently and didn't last all that long? Good luck with the play!!!!
