Main Course
What was a lesson you had to learn the hard way?

Describe your idea of the perfect relaxation room.

I'll answer in the comment box with ya'll!


Game? Ooooh, we LOVE games around here, and have a pretty big collection. But newest? I'd have to say Cosmic Wimp-out, which is a great dice game.

Don't believe? I don't believe in new-agey stuff--the power of crystals and stuff like that.

Boss? No one I can think of. I'm too used to being my own boss, being a stay at home mom and all.

Lesson? I'd say it's a lesson I'm still learning every day: It's not all about me. Or even MOSTLY about me.

Relaxation room? A giant home library, stacked to the ceilings with books. Comfy chairs and squishy leather sofas abound. Afghans draped over the arms, so that you can cover up while you're reading. And good lamps, so you can see the words on the page.....

What was the last game you purchased? Go Fish for Impressionist Art

Name something in which you don't believe. New age baloney
If you could choose a television personality to be your boss, who would you pick? Andy of Mayberry

What was a lesson you had to learn the hard way? Marriage is whole lot more than planning the perfect wedding.

Describe your idea of the perfect relaxation room. My boudoir. With plenty of books, adequate lighting and no more than one dog at a time on my bed.

1) Dominoes
2) Extraterrestial life forms
3) Bonnie Hunt from any movie/ tv sho she's ever done
4) NFP is not hard.
5) A beautiful bedroom with french doors that opened up to a pavestone patio, lush garden, and pool


Appetizer: UpWords.

Soup: Jack Chick's paranoid fantasies.

Salad: God from _Joan of Arcadia_. (Does this answer count?)

Main course: It's silly to chase after the spotlight.

Dessert: As long as there are lots of books and lots of comfortable chairs, I'll be happy!

Dear MamaT,

appetizer--29 1/2 sports games in one box (for Samuel)

soup--most economic theorists or theories

Salad--heavens--none of those people, God forbid.

Main course--follow your conscience, listen to your heart

dessert--A library stuffed to the gills with books, with a big wooden desk and comfortable overstuffed rolling chair, a window seat and several comfortable chairs scattered round. The soundtrack should be suitably soothing classical music--I'd probably stick with Debussy, or some chamber works (I'm not keen on chamber music).



1. I'm not a game person.

2. The claim that WalMart is evil.

3. I'm with Ellyn - Andy Taylor of Mayberry.

4. Always sit a toddler sideways on your lap, so that when he suddenly lunges backward he doesn't smack his head into your lip.

5. My books close to hand and a good firm mattress and pillows.

Last game I purchased - cards and poker chips

I don't believe in UFO's

Television personality for my boss - Oprah. She seems as if she would be a good boss.

Lesson I learned the hard way - Don't take your eyes from the road when you are driving, even for a second. Pretty self explanitory, eh?

Perfect relaxation room - soothing color, cushy chair, soft music playing, and plenty of good reading material,a large window with a view of nature, along with fresh water and a lovely scented candle burning. And no one else but me in the room. Ahhhhh!

1. Ditto on the cards and chips

2. I try to keep a non-skeptical frame of mind when it comes to odd happenings and such. There's a lot of weird stuff going on out there in god's creation (or despite it, if you take my meaning).

That being said, I am somewhat dubious of the claim "melts in your mouth, not in your hand." Anyone with kids knows this is, at best, an exaggeration.

3. Vince from Entourage. He's kind of a pain, but the pay is good and he would never fire anyone.

4. THE lesson. You mean singular? hahahahahaha

5. Pretty much what everbody has said (books to the roof, club chairs, etc). Except I would need a nitch with a craftmatic adjustable bed facing a 3000" plasma TV with the NFL channel, NFL Sunday Ticket and 3 linked, dual tuner tivos.

Kenny is right. I remember putting that maxim to the test with a bunch of M&Ms once, and it's nonsense. They melt in your hand in a surprisingly short time, especially in a young child's hot little fist.

1. Last game was Hello Kitty Uno :o)
2. I don't believe OJ is innocent
3. Regis Philbin
4. How to forgive
5. I can relax almost anywhere...except perhaps a waiting room or car.

1. Axis & Allies Pacific
2. That process can substitute for virtue.
3. Lou Grant
4. Yard by yard, life is hard. Inch by inch, life's a cinch.
5. Walnut paneling, chesterfield furniture, low lights except for unobtrusive bright ones for reading, decanters of port and Irish whiskey, the day's Times on the table, old waiters . . . in short, my club.
