It's Time For One Of These Again

I haven't done one of these in a while, but I totally stole this one from Dawn. Shhhh....she doesn't know it yet!

1. Name something you have in common with all of your siblings?
I only have one sibling and we have the same birth month. I was going to also say "eyes" because they are both brown, but his are very dark (almost black) and mine are as golden as the glow of a summer sky....uh, I mean, light.

I find my memes & surveys all over. I usually link to my "source" at the very beginning of the post if I can, but this one was emailed to me by a non-blogging friend. Feel free to borrow away! They are more fun when they are shared! =)

11. Ugh, I hate metal scraping on anything. A spoon in a pot, a fork against teeth, a knife squealing across a plate. ::shudder::

17. You are the second person to do this survey that listed a Sugarland song for this question!

28. LOL! My best friend just got her daughter one for her birthday! Seriously. It's all enclosed though to hopefully prevent injuries.

44. Do you usually use your own photos as your background? I switch mine up a lot. Sometimes I use my photos, sometimes I use photos I find online (usually of the Red Sox or my favorite football team), and there are a couple of backgrounds that came with my computer that I like too -- the starfish is one of them.

46. I wonder the very same thing.
