Getting to know Grandy

Congrats on the big win :)

Loved reading this list GRandy!

Renie Burghardt said...

Hey Grandy,

I enjoyed reading your answers. Let me see, my middle name is as bad as yours: Serena. My vacation choice would be the Galapagos Islands! I may have that spelled wrong, but you know, the place with all the unusual animals. I have both cat and dog hair under my bed, and beets are yucky!

Well, enough of that. I'm glad I popped on over. I always enjoy reading funny and clever blogs.

Have a great week, Lady!

Renie

onthecurb said...

Let me get this straight. Your name is Mary Antoinette??? Or is 'Mary' your internet name? wow.

My middle name is fairly harmless - Michele.

26. What are you listening to right now? Gab snoring on my chest as I peck out this comment. :-)

Grandy said...

Mike~ Let me know if you end up posting it.

Jenn~ Hmmm...I'll have to check that out.

Mrs. F~ Is Cerulean a color? Sounds like a Star Trek breed.

MP~ I wanna see that movie. My old roommate used to do the popcorn/ M&M thing too.

Suzanne~ Do they not sell Peanuttles in Florida? I MUST send you some!

Matthew~ Jealous! Can't wait to see that one.

Joyce-Anne~ Yet more in common.

Tree~ Louise is my sister's middle name (not twin...another sis).

Mrs. G~ Cat lives in Ty's room...that's where her hair lives.

Grandy said...

Chris~ Well, there's no pressure from me, my friend. I'm just glad you stop by.

Hasta~ Um...Girlfriend...Who's frickin funeral was it? Thanks for playing.

Theresa~ I had to re-read that (I'm tired) and I thought you had the chocolate under your bed.

Sandy~ Glad I gave you a smile today. :)

Renie~ Thanks so much for your kind words. Good to see you!

Curb~ DUH!! Grandy is my internet name. ;) No...twin sister's middle name is Marie, so I guess if you put us together you get Marie Antoinette.

dkuroiwa said...

Okay..I'll play a few...
2. Diamonds or pearls?...But can't I have both?!?!? puh-leeeeease!
7. What food do you dislike? change that to "hate" and my answer would be boiled and fried eggs! blech!
29. If you were a crayon, what color would you be? magenta

ooh...toffee peanuts...problem is, can't stop once I start, ergo...never buy them!!! to dangerous!!!

storyteller said...

Diamonds for me … definitely! I’ve given up soda for water myself, but I still enjoy coffee and I want my Caramel Macchiato ‘the real thing’. Love your response of ‘bedroom’ to where you want to retire and there’s dog hair everywhere in my house except under the bed (Molly’s not allowed upstairs and there IS no ‘under’ the bed) … but 50 is way too many questions for me to handle on any given day. Congrats on the ‘win’ …

If you’d like to be ‘tagged’ for simple and easy … drop by Small Reflections and volunteer for the NEEDS meme.
Hugs and blessings,

Grandy said...

dk~ Yeah I get that not buying them is better.

storyteller~ I'll have to go check out the meme. Thanks for stopping by. :)
