Blazing Saddles ... awesome!

Lisa said...

when norah is old enough, you can make unloading the dishwasher her chore and get that one off your list!

I agree with you on the cigarettes. I also hate it when people leave them on the ground at outdoor concerts.

That is one of my pet peeves too along with people who some right outside an entrance to a building.

OMG - You are going to have platinum hair when you get old. Say it sin't so!

Marlene said...

You love ALL vegetables? I'm impressed!! There are not many that I actually "dislike" but I certainly don't love them all.

I've been meaning to answer your question from my post last week re: health care. We do have pretty amazing government-funded health care for most things, but "extras" like physiotherapy, chiropractor, eye doctor, dental, etc. are covered only by private drug plans.

5 Feet! I think if there was a professor teaching us engineers in college that short there could have been trouble :)

Couldn't agree more with the peeve - the world is NOT your ashtray!!
