I filled out this meme too. It was fun.

Dwayne said...

Far from boring, I especially identified with the favorite Christmas song, Sleigh Ride. Leroy Anderson really gets me going.

Who's your favorite Moon River Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole?

Curtis said...

Nice! Near 4.0? -- you bitch you! And you're wrong on number 43.

Sam said...

Dwayne, Andy Williams version of Moon River is my fave, though Audrey singing it on her balcony with the doo rag on and all is pretty darn near perfect.

And Curtis, after a *careful* check of my records, found that i'd rounded 3.6 up to 4.0 in my head! Selective memory doubtlessly. Thanks for pointing out my, er, mistake on #43, sweetie pie.

Hey, Sam. So glad to see that you're still filling out these "total waste of time but so much fun" email questionnaires. Every time I receive one I have to stop everything and fill it out. It's probably the thing that will get me fired from my job one day. Love you and miss you.

Oh Sam, I wish I was there to sing loudly in your ear right now. Instead, I will find a field here in Engelberg and sing "The hills are alive........" just for you. Miss you lots and lots.

Oh Sam! I wish I was there to sing loudly in your ear. Instead I'll have to settle on finding a field here in Engelberg and singing "The hills are alive......" in your honor. Miss you lots and lots. By the way, this may publish twice because all of the instructions on this site are in German, and I only understand some of what it's trying to tell me.
