I'm feeling groggy today, so my writing skills are a little sluggish. Probably due to all the time I spend tweeking this damn babblefest that has taken over my life. Anyway, I stole this list off of a great blog - The Sleepless Walrus. I hope he doesn't mind - it's probably not wise to piss off a walrus.

So you are a Jersey girl, not necessarily a Jersey Girl, which is a movie that got too few positive reviews.

I, too, am a fan of the Princess Bride. Also a good book.

Forgive me. I'm drinking my Syrah. I've forgotten everything else I wanted to comment on.

No worries, I'm a Jersey girl through and through - but no big hair or grating accent. And I'm having a Grand Marnier in the hopes it will knock me unconscious. Thanks for reading my stuff!
By the way, I have a reference to The Princess Bride in my Maloney's post. See if you can find it. ;)
