  1. I was on my high school newspaper too, Anya, as well as on my grade school newspaper. But then I got to your figure skating mention after that and I really had to laugh because the similarities ended there. I was the world’s biggest klutz in high school and the only time I tried to ice skate it was not a pretty sight. LOL

  2. I knew you were good people. Number 7 confirms it. 😉

  3. The Barn Cat Chronicles? That has best seller written all over it!

  4. I had to laugh at the tuba incident. How did that work out for you?

  5. Your HS had a figure skating team? I’d never heard of that before. Sounds like fun! I was editor of my HS newspaper and played on the Women’s Hockey team in college. Funny about picking the tuba! I would have done that, too.

  6. The fact that Survivor is the only TV show you watch, which is shocking, is easily offset by rescuing 7 cats!

  7. #1 made me laugh. Of all instruments, a tuba? LOL!

    I lived in Wales last year and it’s cool Much less expensive than good ol’ England 🙂 I loved the countryside!

    Happy Thursday!

  8. 22 books huh? no wonder you have your own crate in my storage unit. grin! you know it would be fun to see who all worked on their high school news papers. I was editor for two years…. maybe that’s where i got the take charge bug.

  9. LOL I cracked up with the tube incident. I worked on the high school newspaper as well.

    I’m new to cats. We adopted our first cat last July. I’m slave to a diva kitty.
