So, friends, this is officially the fourth blog that I have had in only 24 years on earth. Considering that only about 6 of them have been active blogging years, I’d say that qualifies me as one who just might have a slight case of the blog ADD. At any rate, I’ve decided to start of 2008 with yet another one…and some memes, how original!
I give you money and send you into the grocery store to pick up 5 items.
You can only pick one thing from the following departments… what’ll it be?

2. Bakery: Baguette
3. Meat: Spicy Italian sausage, because I suck at liking red meat
4. Frozen: Morningstar Farms Buffalo Wings
5. Dairy: Greek yogurt

phrases or words would I be most likely to hear?
1. I know, right?

you didn’t get to do, you probably wouldn’t be in the best mood?

school, and inform yourself of 4 things, what would you say?
