January:

Just catching up on my Sunday blog reading and wanting to say hello to you, today.

All I can say is that I share in more than three qualities/preferences/etc. with you!

January said...

Hi Jim!

Hope you are having a great Sunday.

I had to change some of my responses because too many of them had Dubya as an answer (things that scare me, people who make me laugh, things I hate, etc.).

twitches said...

I say leave the Dubyas in! But your new responses are interesting, too.

And no, I'm not over your six sugars. :)

January said...

Twitches: My tea is really is the only sugar indulgence I have. And I eat a very well-balanced diet with small portions and lots of veggies.

What can I say? I'm from the South.

:)

I loved reading your answers to this meme! And I laughed at the sugar in tea thing - it reminded me of my husband, only with him it's coffee instead of tea. He's tall and thin and doesn't have much of a sweet tooth at all as a rule (sweets are my weakness, not his), but the one exception to that is coffee. I've never seen another human being put as much sugar in coffee as he does!

I totally agree with you about Dubya.

Andrew said...

Swimming is trivial. Now BREATHING while you do it ... there's your challenge!

To Love, Honor and Dismay

chiefbiscuit said...

Now i know you even better than before! :) Love the answers - succinct and real.

My kids make tea with more sugar than I can even bear to watch sometimes. On other days--they use just a small dash of honey. On both days, they're wild anyway. I could be right there with you on the Dubya answers...oh my! And if you were U.S. Poet Laureate--I hope you bring all of your blogging fans along at your inauguration, so we can sniff into our tissues and think back on all of the happy Poetry Thursdays!

VLAW said...

Agree you should've left the Dubyas in! Digging the six sugars. - Nic

January said...

Delia: If I was Poet Laureate, I'd have a special proclamation declared--Poetry Thursday day. Then we could share our little secret with the rest of the world.

Vlaw: Glad you've returned to the blogosphere. We've missed you!

wendylou who? said...

the wiggles make Georgie Boy look like a high brow intellectual type...don't they..great meme...may have to steal it....

bb said...

*THREE THINGS I DON'T UNDERSTAND: david blaine*

and i think it would have been great to see how many categories you could've fitted dubya in - three things on my desk? three things i want to before i die?!
