I shall tag nyc/caribbean ragazza, anti-wife, kim and kaz, but only if you want to, guys. It's just for fun, no obligation. And kevin too, if he has the time - which I doubt.

hehehe... I'm going to make sure I say "pissant" at least once today.

(I had to look up "zaftig.")

The Anti-Wife said...

OOOOHHHH! A challenge. I shall take you up on this, but a bit later. It will be on my blog by tonight.

kim said...

I'll do it too! I love a meme, but it will be a bit, my kids are wild I'll tell ya, wild.

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

I think I answered some of these questions in another one but I'll do this. Thanks for the tag.

Kaz Augustin said...

Count me in, Liane! I'll update my own blog tomorrow and think of other victims. Hee hee.

Thanks for thinking of me...I think. ;)

wordtryst said...

Yeah, matt. I love 'pissant'.

anti-wife, kim, nyc/caribbean and kaz, thanks for playing, guys. I promise I won't do it again. :)

KeVin K. said...

What is this time you speak of?

Yes, I shall take up this challenge.
BUT ... Not today.

It is 9:00PM and I must produce 1800 words before going to sleep. I was supposed to start writing an hour ago.
Instead I've been visiting award-winning (or at least nominated) blogs and figuring out how to steal their little map thing and put it on my live journal.

Give me a few days and I'll respond.

Kevin, you're making me giggle here. I know exactly what you mean - sometimes I think I've perfected that syndrome.

I saw the map thingummy on kaz's blog and went into manic acquisitive mode immediately. Clicked around till I got it on to my page. Ain't it purty? I've got this weakness of widgets...
