  1. HAHAHAHA!! I laughed so many times while reading this... Curious... did you miss "T" on purpose because you hate "t" as much as you hate bananas??? (just teasing) :)
    Do you mind if I copy this idea on my blog one day?? Such a fun way to learn more about a person!! :)

  2. Oh I love this little game - what a perfect way to learn about a friend! Had to laugh at the knitting one though!


  3. We are kindred spirits! I knew it! I, too, will not go near a banana under any circumstances; pink is my favourite color; I do NOT like yellow; I crave quiet (although I also love music); and the rain at night ~ wonderful! I laughed about the knitting. You have done more than I have! I am still wanting to learn. Sigh...

    Thanks for sharing. It was wonderful! Can I snag this from you and do it on my own blog, as well?

  4. Oh, and cats! I adore them. I had cats for years, but had to have allergy shots. They don't do allergy shots here (there's a surprise... can't imagine why the wonderful NHS won't do allergy shots), so no kitty for me till we move back to America. :-(

  5. Clara - feel free to use this on your blog - just remember there are 26 letters to the alphabet. I have included "T" in an entry all of its own:) !!!! (LOL)

    Stacey - please use and enjoy:) Sad about the cat allergy

    Vicki - even though I am not a knitter I always wore (as a child) hand-knitted jumpers as my mother knitted non-stop.

  6. I saw there was no T, but presumed that you just could not think of anything to go with it. I thought that tartan may have been included, or thocolate as you had already used the 'c'...

  7. My brothers were so cruel to make you laugh when you shouldn't!
