  1. Zerodoll & Jayfish: cutest couple in cyberspace

    I’ll second AND third that one!!

    I love your answer to 41.

    Did you get the email I sent last night? Just thought I would keep you informed. (ooooooh, so top secret!)

  2. #36- wasn’t it a different location before?!

  3. What’s a French shepherd’s pie? Does that mean it has cream or something?

    My grandmother’s family was supposedly well off in China before the Communists as well.

  4. i like that picture of the stairwell you took too but as a desktop pic, won’t you feel all woosey?

    and like z said, i thought the tat was going on your arm??

  5. As a matter of fact, I’m jealous of you! I wish I lived in NYC!

  6. zerodoll & jayfish: yup, somewhere along the way, i changed my mind about the location of the tat. not that i’ll ever get one. i guess. who knows.

    pandax: a french shepherd’s pie is just like regular shepherd’s pie except that it sits on a plate instead of in one of those deep dish things. the one i had also had no flavor, but that may have been the restaurant.
