A Bit More About Busy Me

The days are getting shorter, and my to-do list seems to be getting longer.  So, while I try to find some time to tabulate the scavenger hunt results, here's a pretty fall sunset and a fun survey, which I found a Carrie's blog.  I'd love to see your answers.

P. Pet peeves: Drivers who don't use their turn signal
Q. Quote from a movie: “You should've bought a squirrel." Rat Race

I'm an otter lover too - as a child they were my 1st stop at the zoo and I still love to watch them

Fun! I always love learning a few new things about someone!

Jimjams said...

That was fun reading - must try it myself Professor Rinda!

Sian said...

I'm with you on the car indicators. Especially on roundabouts. That really annoys me!

Melissa said...

What an interesting way to share information about yourself - enjoyed reading through. I totally agree about the slimy, slimy okra!

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

Haha - I love this, Rinda. Thanks for smiles this morning. LOVE your answers to "C" and "U". :o)

Terry said...

Interesting to learn more about you! What bugs me are those people who decide to have a total conversation right in the middle of store isles!! How you feel about Okra is how I feel about peas!! I can eat pea soup or tolerate a few thrown in, but not just a serving of peas! Have a great day!

So much fun reading your list! I LOLed at your U answer, too, and I love Rat Race! That movie cracked me up!

Irene said...

I also loved reading a little bit more about you. It cracked me up. LOL

Ginger said...

Loved reading your answers Rinda!

The Mann Fam said...

You and I are the same height! Fun learning more about you.

ComfyMom~Stacey said...

I loved Rat Race! Can't stand okra either.

Miriam said...

Oh this is fun, x has gone over my head, I agree with you on v and very definitely with you on c!

what a fun survey, I didn't know you taught law, that's very cool. I took business law in college and really enjoyed it. You do NOT look 50. I love those little otters too and I love the color orange, something about it's positive energy attracts me to it every time.

Wow, Rinda

I didn't know we have so many things in common. Like A, D, C, V and the letter K just half. Because I also have a 16 year old son. Just to name a few of the letters.

Happy week!
