Rob said...

Imagine my surprise finding my name over here! (it is me right?)

Oh my! You are just trying to make me realize how sad and empty my life is huh?!

Ok, I'm always up for a challenge though. Let me see if I can think up 8 lies or not. Whew!

Cecily R said...

Woo Hoo! A blog post idea! I'll do it this weekend. Thanks so much for thinking of me!!!

I read 40 Weeks too and really liked it. I really hope she gets a book deal soon. If you haven't finished it already, it might make you cry. I did. Course, I cry over everything.

I'm totally with you on everything on your 8 Things Before I Die except shave my head. I can tell mine would be very bumpy and yicky if I did.

Manic Mom said...

crystal said...

Oh! You tagged me! I feel so loved! Maybe that'll snap me out of my pathetic funk and get me blogging!

I. LOVE. RIPPLE. One of the top songs EVERRRRRRR!!!!! You're my soul-sista!

p.s. my reading of World Without End came to a screeching halt (as I'm sure you noticed) while I had more important things to do, like watching paint dry. Do you still wanna have our unofficial book club?

Your interview with Manic was so great, I just had to stop by!

I love your book listed Bible-God.

That is too funny!
