Iron Woman/Man Meme

From the always awesome Charlotte, this meme was one of the most fun I've done

5. I will never forget: Ryoko.
6. Once I met: Desmond Tutu.
7. There’s this girl I know: who had her back broken in four places, was in intensive care for a week, graduated from high school on time, and became a hero.
8. Once, at a bar: I beat a friend at darts .
9. By noon, I’m usually: pretty much awake and feeling fine.
10. Last night: I tried to relive my earlier days, went to see a band at a venue miles away from my town, rocked, and feel great.

12. Next time I go to church: I'll listen to every word of the sermon, I promise.

27. A song I love but do not have is: City of Tiny Lights
28. If you visit my hometown, I suggest you: give it chance, a long chance, like about a year, and then realise we're doing the best with what we have to work with, and then...save yourself, move! or not.

That was great, ( how was it that we were more lighthearted hating Reagan that we are now hating Bush?) but at the end, I got confused over the blond question and "all of the above." You surely didn't mean Ayn Rand? Was she blond? linser

Danny said...

I can relate to a lot of these answers, especially #33. And I really like your uncle!

I may attempt this one--glad Emily found the missing entries!
