Loved the answers. Ostomies are not cool, most def, and chemistry was my least favorite subject in HS. The only reason I passed was because I turned in all of my homework and labs.

Your collage is fun--I love Domo, the fella in the bananas. We have a magnet of him on our fridge, where he is playing the guitar :o)

Ostomies = Blech!

I did okay in chemistry. As a senior I was signed up for physics, but didn't need the credit, since I already had extra science credits. After the first day in class, I went to withdraw and my guidance counselor encouraged me to stay in the class by saying, "It'll pump up your GPA." My answer? "Not if I fail." I was withdrawn.

Domo looks kinda cute on the bananas. Almost as if he's saying "Rawr! My bananas!"

I like the idea of the snape on the phone. And an AR calander too. I keep my obsession low key to spare the SO's feelings...then again he would never look at my phone!

See, then your phone would be a perfect spot for a little obsession!

I don't have to worry about a SO, but when the time comes, he's going to have to accept all of my quirks and obsessions. I'm not going to give up the AR dream!

I love A Knight in Shining Armor! It's one of the few romance novels I've read over ,and over, and over... Have you read Masque of the Swan? I can't remember who wrote it, but that's my other favorite.

I like bananas, too. I eat one everyday for breakfast :-)

You are the first person to know what book I'm talking about. Don't you think that AR would make a great 'Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck'? I would be first in line to see that movie! Another favorite is 'Until Forever' by Johanna Lindsey.

I'll look that book up next time I'm at the library. I googled it. The name Rebecca Ashe came up. Does that sound right?

Bananas go fast at my house.

Yes, it's Rebecca Ashe. I couldn't look myself as hubby was sleeping in that room last night so I couldn't get in there. The lead character reminds me of Snape so I highly recommend it if you're looking for a snarky, handsome fellow.

And yes, I can see AR playing Stafford, though honestly, I would watch that movie no matter who they had playing him. Did you know she came out with an updated version of it a few years ago? It's slightly different from the original, but mostly it was just an improvement on the writing and editing.

A man as snarky as Snape? That is definitely a must read.

An updated version, huh? No I didn't know. Is it called the same thing, or did she rename it?

It's the same thing, but the cover just mentions something about it being the 20th anniversary edition and it being reworked/re-edited or something, that's all.
