Um, I voted in your poll, but it didn't except it. I think it's gone wonky. :(

Jaggy said...

I voted! and now I'm commenting!

Agreed about never buying a Pacer.

Good luck with your Sims and piano-playing skills. Those are two things I have down pretty well (ok, I'm good at killing Sims and selling their tombstones for money).

And YAY for making your bed. :)

A good read! I like the bit about the piano, I feel just the same!
