Ben McLaughlin said...

Jess- Yeah I'm excited about the Hobbit

Al-Yeah. It's sad how age seems to bring fatness.

Soph- The place we rented last year for a few months had a 2 drawer dishwasher, our first experience with one. Now going back to not having one has been a hard, hard journey.

Kim- how ANYone could not like cheesecake is pretty baffling

Deb- I relate to your number 5!

Pedro- yeah it took me quite a while to realise that deep down you were a stresser!

Kris- I miss reading. I get the opportunity, but just don't do it anymore. Not novels anyway.

Laetitia- I'm a fellow worrier!

Wendy- the more I think about it, the less I think you can seperate people into two neat catagories of introvert and extrovert. There's always a lot of crossover there.

George- I actually think that's a good trait, to be transparent. It has drawbacks, but there's something refreshing about it too.

ruth- I agree, hard to imagine life without them. I look back and wonder how I used all that free time I must have had! what did I do with myself pre-kids? Can't remember.

Dawn- that's a hefty sum of planes! I can definitely relate to being a non-shy introvert. good description.

Cj- I'm suspending my judgement on Tintin. I was such a HUGE fan that seeing him all CGI and realistic pains me. But we'll see.

Simone- No need for the 'I know, I know'. Me and E are PUMPED for Breaking Dawn. It's scheduled for our next night out.

Beth said...
