This is very fun and unique! And you made it extra cute and clever. That's just the kind of girl you are.

Kristina P. said...

Holy crap, woman! You have done everything!

And I have about 30 undone tags. Want them?

Kritta22 said...

Holy crap! You have done a bunch!!You couldn't stole it from me, ya know?! I didn't tag anyone...was I suppose to?!

*MARY* said...

Isn't doing a tag that you haven't been tagged with against the blaw?
I'm telling!

Pat said...

I liked how different this was and I agree, Holy Crap you have done so many differnt things. I might copy this but mine will not be very exciting, unless I lie. Hey how do we know we can believe you on this, when you have openly admitted to lying before. I just don't know. You better come clean, was all of the stuff you said you did true or not. Inquiring minds want to know.

verifier says "readat" You know is that gangster for read that? I am not sure.

Mariko said...

Ok, so I have a problem with the fact that you have never watched a meteor shower.
Next time there is one, I am requiring you to wake up around midnight, go to the Kahuku golf course with your husband, and lay down there and watch the meteor shower. No other hanky panky allowed.
If you don't do this, your daughter may or may not get an A.
Oh, and it's "Brah" with an 'h'. I guess you weren't paying attention in Pidgin 101.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Ha ha ha. Mariko, you can tell I taught myself pidgin. I never went to pidgin 101. Ha ha. You can also tell I'm a haole. I better go change that so I don't look stupid.

And PAT, so happy to see spreading your sunshine in my comment box again. WELCOME HOME and WELCOME BACK! I have missed you greatly.

And HOLY CRAP! I got 2 HOLY CRAPS for this post.

And NO Kristina P. I have NOT done everything. I have never held a praying mantis. And I don't want your tags. I thank goodness every night that I'm not as popular as you and that I don't get tags and that I don't have to read 80 comments every day. :)

And YAY Kritta22 is here. I see here everywhere, but I never see her here. THANKS for coming Kritta22. 22 is my husband's favorite number so he'll be glad you came too.

Oh, and Pat, everything is 100% true. I only tease lie, I never boldface lie. (Except I have held a praying mantis, but I didn't want to look braggy.)

The Crash Test Dummy said...

And Mary, Hee hee. Blaw! You are so dang cute!

Crazy Lady said...

Ya, I would do this tag but most of the things would not be bolded. I haven't even been to Disney Land for crying out loud. Although I have climbed the great wall of china.

Funny Farmer said...

I could do this tag because although I haven't done most of the things on it, unlike most tags, it does not require me to actually think and give interesting answers.

I've barely even been to Canada, let alone off the stinkin' continent! My travel illiteracy is a source of great embarrassment. Just stick me on a farm.

However, I have three blog post ideas from my trip, which I am returning from today...yes, see that person from Denver that keeps clogging up your sitemeter? That's me. Wave goodbye to Denver cuz you'll never see her again! :waves sadly:

home sweet home said...

Glad I found your wonderful blog! I'll definitely come back and visit again.

I am LoW said...

Girrrrrrrrrrrrrllll, I totally tagged you several weeks back!

Just sayin.

Emily Anne Leyland ( Art-n-Sewl) said...

Wow girl...you have done a lot. That was fun.

*canit* Alright..I'm done. Gosh!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

I'm giving you a third holy crap!

I'm super curious now...what business did you start?

Alyson (New England Living) said...

verifier: "trytos" It's telling me that I should "try to" do as much as you have. Don't think that's going to happen! But thanks for thinking me capable, you sweet little verifier.

Martha said...

I knew you couldn't keep away from writing something this weekend. You have done way more than I ever have. Someday when these kids grow up I'm going to go somewhere.
