  1. Now I have to go back and see what I answered… I can't remember. Yay for not smoking for so long!

    To answer your comment!! I'm not on FB at the moment and I am ROYALLY sucking at the movie challenge 🙁 I've only watched one on my list: The American President. I will try to check a few more off this month!!

  2. I don't think you answered #4 correctly.

    Looks like your imaginary daughter made out better than your imaginary son. (Willa Cather?)

    A lot of London in this post. Is this pre- or post-Brexit?

  3. Well, now I have to do this too.
    Since you fondly remember coloring books and crayons, have you jumped into the notion that adult coloring books are supposed to be calming and relaxing?
    I actually knew a lot of these, which made me happy, because we're like real friends, aren't we? :p
