Maren said...

Yes I've seen God's Army. What part were you in?

I also think everything should be alphabetized, but for my cd's, I tend to organize them by type--classical music, musical theatre, church music, 80s alternative, etc. etc.

s'mee said...

Four of my five children and myself are in the airport seen. teehee

chronicler said...

I love your answer to #81! Would loved to have been there!

too funny! code word is cuusizf

s'mee said...

um, make that scene...duh, long day

Lisa M. said...


Um... I am going to have to watch God's Army ( a very hard show for me to watch) again. Just so I can spot ya!

I want to comment on all of them.

Oh, I hate Rivers too.

Chronicler is nuts to want to sky dive. Did ya like my hell no answer to that.

I am on a mission to make hell a regular word and not one that is a swear word or self degrading to the one that uses it.

(sorry for swearing on your blog)

I bet you have recorded music.

I'll say what I said to Chronicler, and I mean it

You have enhanced my life. More than you'll ever know.

s'mee said...

o.k. Lisa, Look all you want and you may never see s'mee in the movie, but I am there, as are the kids. I played a very important part in the production of that scene, however never got credit...that said, they could not have shot the scene without me! (oooh intrigue!)

As far as the recorded music, they never specified... i have "recorded" so many tapes,cds, etc. that I could be considered a bootlegger. However, for the "record" I have been officially recorded on an actual vinyl album, that people actually had to pay to get! Unfortunately at the time of the recording no one I knew could afford to purchase a copy.

The whole sky diving, bungee jumping, falling off a roller coaster thing is well beyond my sphere of understanding. Sis IS a nut!

chronicler said...

hell yeah! I resemble those remarks!

Oh and I forgot, I did record a music once. In high school. dumb record. but it did qualify as a recording. going to change my answer.

Hello and thanks for the opportunity to post on your blog. I am the webmaster of a website dedicated to cruise ships, and I am working on improving my content constantly. Hopefully I will find some more interesting info on your blog as I will check back soon. Till then, here are a few tips on selecting a cruise that I hope you and your readers will find interesting:
How long do you plan to cruise? (from three to fourteen nights, to world cruises which are the longest, lasting up to three months);
Where and how to search? You have two alternatives: a cruise travel agent or agency or the websites of cruise lines;
Facilities offered during the cruise (for instance, if you like to gamble you may want to choose a cruise line that has casinos on board; maybe facilities for your children which are offered by all major cruise lines);
Port of departure. You can choose it by the proximity to your home, if you want to save money and avoid expensive airfare;
Land and shore excursions (they are offered by all cruise lines, and last from two to three days, before, after or even during the cruise vacation). This kind of excursion gives you the opportunity to explore new cultures, destinations, visit new places, practice water sports, do some shopping etc.
If you’d like to read more about discount cruises or finding last minute cruises you are more than welcome to visit my website,
Have an excellent day!
