Cries of anguish echoed through the house when my husband and I realized we had matched with Mary Decker Slaney. The scene was somewhat reminiscent of that famous photo of her down on the track. :?

^ that's what you call too much too little too late.

So Lefty had a Singleton with Deniece Williams and then two people ruined it when the host let them clarify their answers. Let's Hear It for the Boy!
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

Wow - a podium finish! I don't know the last time that happened.

Congrats to squarekara on the win and thanks to Peachbox for hosting!

I will be posting TD 468 either later tonight or tomorrow (Monday) morning.

I'll admit that being a native Californian certainly helped with the bonus Q.

Glad I couldn't remember Sandra Cisneros' name. I had to buy that book for my kid's English class.

Thanks for hosting, Peachbox!
beansandcornbread is still figuring out the system, so a post could come any day now. In the meantime, thanks from him, too.
