I wouldn't have taken you for someone who had a doll as favorite toy. I would have guessed a book, since you are such an avid reader.

I too look forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas. They both are so food, friend and family oriented.

I like the memes you borrow and use.

Ditto what Tink said about your drinking line. Too funny

And Hugh Jackman is most certainly a sport worth watching. I wouldn't mind going out for/with that sport either let me tell you..
