    Geeze, I knew you didn't read mine (sulks likes a baby)

  3. Hah! I love onions! (winks at you!)


  4. Someone else with a fear of overflowing toilets?! My general fear of bathrooms has its roots in being in a marshalls or a kmart (or something) when I was little and the toilet started overflowing and I couldn't open the door. It was terrifying. The fear has since been compounded by the movie "Copycat" and by the power going out in our building at work when I was in the windowless bathroom this past summer.

    But at least I'm not alone now ;)

  5. Yay you'll be there tomorrow? Looking forward to meeting you as well!
