8. Today, none. I have eaten all of them before except for mochi (what is that?).

9. My mom called me. My friend Nikki texted me about going to the movies.

10. Fairmount and Camillus Myopia. A condition that causes a person to have a very limited perspective on life due to the fact that they have never lived outside of the area between Fairmount Fair and Camillus Jr. High.

Scott said...

1. Yes, and yes. Though the piano I have right now belongs to the owner of the house I'm renting, and it's truly craptacular.

2. Facts of Life, Family Guy, Family Ties, Fawlty Towers, Fraggle Rock, Full House, Futurama. (on a side note, I just can't stand Family Guy, but feel like I'm the only one who doesn't find it funny at all.)

3. some 7-grain crackers and cottage cheese.

4. ABBA, AC/DC, Alice in Chains, Anonymous 4, Arleen Auger. I was just remembering how much I loved that Alice in Chains album back in high school, and how I kind of miss it.

6. None of the above.

7. I was just listening to Andrew Bird, but stopped to have a moment of quiet.

8. I have not had any of those foods today. I'll be making something for dinner with mushrooms in it though.

9. My wife called me, when she was on the road coming to pick me up. She also texted me the day before, to tell me that she didn't have a moment to call.

10. Forget About Crying Monkeys. (first thing I could think of. though maybe you want to remember the crying monkeys?)

Steph said...

1. Yes. No.
2. Firefly, Father Ted, Facts of Life (or at least I have some foggy memory thereof), Family Guy, Family Ties (ditto on foggy memory), Fawlty Towers, Flight of the Conchords, Full House, Futurama.
3. a Girl Scout cookie
4. just Anonymous 4
5. Does living in California have something to do with the idea of socks seeming optional enough that you would think to ask this question? Because if so, I want your climate, now.
6. Cannes. It's snobby there.
7. No. The silence is becoming oppressive.
8. The soba noodle salad I had at the co-op deli for lunch listed "fungus" as an ingredient. I suppose that counts as mushroom.
9. My husband; my friend Ken asking if he has ever made us peanut tofu
10. Frak a Cylon Model

Jake said...

Steph, your acronym rules!!

Pam said...

Hey Steph, so, I thought of the question, "Are you wearing socks?", and then realized I wasn't wearing socks, I guess because it's so hot in our apartment you have to wear shorts and a tank top to be comfortable (even though it's not exactly hot outside, although it's not cold either (it's 60)), and then realized it was probably a good question because most of the people responding would be wearing socks, since if you live somewhere cold, you're probably wearing at least one pair of socks.
