What? LJ 5,000 Questions – Part One (21 – 40)

I can’t remember which blog I saw this on (if it was you let me know and I will give you credit) but here’s the LiveJournal 5,000 questions.  I am answering these as part of my Day Zero project. Let’s see what happens.

  1. 5000? You're kidding, right?

    #32 -- me, too (my own family, of course) -- however, there is a good chance that any child, even know I didn't know, could get me to risk my life to save theirs. I just sort of react to children in peril without thinking.

  2. all those questions would make my head spin. but i like your answers

  3. LOL "tempered by a working mind."

    You realize I blame you for getting that song stuck in my head, right?

  4. quilly: Since I put my Day Zero project on hold until I’m published, I doubt if I’ll get close to the 5,000.

    I could do almost anything for my family, too.

    juliana: I can’t imagine what all of the other ones are.

    Alice Audrey: It is one of those songs. I’m sorry. But not really.
