Wow! Thanks Kim :) You've had a very different life to me, looking at your answers, yet we are so similar in so many other ways!x

Andrea and Kim said...

Hi Jess, can you see all of them? I can't see the whole list.

My life seems like none other, but I do identify with you and some other artist friends.

You are so much fun! Have a Great Weekend!

~Babs said...

Happy to say I've never had food poisoning,,,,you poor thing!!

Seeing that Concentration Camp must have been one rude awakening!

Fun post however!

~Babs said...

(Seeing the entire list here.)

Andrea and Kim said...

Oh Babs, food poisoning is horrific. This is what comes from traveling a lot, I suppose. At least it wasn't like my boyfriend of many years who got food poisoning on one of those overnight that was brutal!

The concentration camp was like nothing I can explain. I couldn't go through the whole thing, but you do what is the right thing for your history major son, right?

I am glad you are seeing all of these...this has me really baffled! Oh well!

Thanks Babs for letting me know.

Have a Great Weekend.

Kim, you did so many things on this list, so interesting to read this (I can't participate the only thing on the list I have done is having been stung by a bee, LOL)

Andrea and Kim said...

Andrea, you are so funny. You also started a blog! LOL

I know you can't participate as the Metroheads are probably calling you.

Have a Grand Weekend, My Dear Andrea!

San said...

Cool post, Kim. Have you ever been stung by a bee at the top of the Eiffel Tower? Me neither. But I've done those things at different times. And several other things on the list. I do wonder what's up with those gaps--Blogger can be so ornery sometimes!

Andrea and Kim said...

Hello San,

No, the bee sting was as a little kid and the Eiffel Tower happened when I had a bit more age on me :)

Blogger has sure been a bee in my bonnet today! The irritating thing is I can see them when I create them. Ornery is the perfect word!

Thanks San and have a Great Weekend!

Unknown said...

oh glad to here that others too find that blogger goes nuts today, just weird, perhaps it is very crowded?
Anyway, just wanted to say good night:)

Andrea and Kim said...

Oh Andrea, I am so sorry you are having blogger issues. Just from time to time I struggle with things like this, but normally I am good. Do you know Paula Snyder has recently moved her blog to wordpress. I suppose you give up some thing and gain others when you do that. Usually it just last as day or so anyway.

Sweet Dreams, My Dear Friend.

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

These are interesting. but the one that struck me was BEEN TO A DRIVE IN THEATER. Something I have done but many will never do. But they were fun. I will reread this to take in more. I was having problems today with blogger, but they do go away quickly.

Andrea and Kim said...

Hi Cris,

LOL, I had never thought of that about the drive-ins. How about drive-in restaurants? Those are becoming a thing of the past, too (although there is still one near where I grew up). :) When we were little, my parents would get us all ready for bed in our little jammies and we would all go to the drive-in. Of course, my sister and I would end up sound asleep before the movie was over.

You know the last drive-in closed, in the area where my husband and I grew up sometime in the last 25 years. He and I actually went to see a movie at one when we were dating...horrible movie, if I remember correctly. :)

You are right the issues go away, finally, with blogger. Maybe when I look at this in the morning the whole list will be here. LOL

Have a Great Weekend, Cris!
