Wow, I really enjoyed reading your answers -- I love "Think of Me", too! :) -- and thanks for the tag! LOL, I don't think I've ever worn a skinny leather necktie! But oh dear, I have worn Spandex and feather earrings and glitter (not, however, all at the same time... at least I don't think I have...). :-D

Hey TL - the skinny leather neckties was the fashion mistake of the early 80's. Right up there with the disco headbands! I cringe thinking about my multi-colored tie collection - the red was my fave.

Christine said...

Loved reading your five things chain meme. I too bite my nails, stay up way too late and procrastinate . . . As a person who survived the 80s, I too have worn spandex and glitter but said no to feather earrings.

Envious of your photo of Bermuda - and the view off your bedroom no less. Wanted to pack a bag and go there immediately!

Alas, the shower and the real world beckons . . . off for another work day!

Amy Ruttan said...

I'm going to have to do this, the question is who to tag????



And now it's my turn...niac,niac,niac!

Let's see now...

Sparky Duck said...

Oh that was alot of fun. Though I do have to question the whole Nutella thing. Because of the taste and the Kobe Bryant endorsement.

Christine said...

Woot! I wore the skinny neckties and had somoe feather earrings. I love the 80s!

SusieJ said...

Do you still have the condo? Lovely.. Glitter gel? Why does anyone think that's cool? Ahhhh, those days before chasing a toddler.

Wylie Kinson said...

Hey Sparky - Nutella is DELISH! Kobe who? ;D

Christine - I sense we would have hung out together had we known each other in high school/college!

SusieJ - alas, no... We went on to buy a house (also with lovely ocean views, but not right on the beach) then moved to Canada two years ago. Now I view a mucky pond!
