I'm at a loss! I really want to play along but I have no idea - guess that's what makes it fun, huh?

Entered! I am very shaky on some of my answers and very confident on others. Now let's see if I'm right on ANY of them!!

LOL I am totally worried... I hope I got at least a few right.. I have been reading your posts for a while now and hope I did get at least one right...

Yes, on the guessing. I used to be an analyst. Let's see how my analytical abilities do for me. ;+) From that list, you clearly are just as interesting ladies as I already knew you had to be.

BTW, Joss, you who are Queen of all things Southern and writerish, Clyde Edgerton? Is he good, or what? I read "Killer Diller" years ago and had forgotten how great it was until I saw it on eBay recently. Loved it.

The true answers:
(Yes, all you cheaters can thank me).

1. North Carolina
2. The letter 14.
3. Outside the window, tapping.
4. Fuschia.
5. Eggshell. Not beige; eggshell!
6. Budapest.
7. Because it woke up the dog.
8. Lewis Carroll first, and then scent of figs.
9. Checkers.
10. Old, at least fifty years.

Sorry to ruin your contest, but since I had so much inside information, I felt like I had to be fair OR SOMETHING.

If I was not your so RLBFTulip I could so win this. At least, I think I could. Perhaps you are FAR more mysterious than I imagine...;)

Maybe I can claim the booby prize! Oh, no booby prize?

Lydia you are pure genius

Brigitte you can't win the booby prize unless you go to France and get it unstuck.

Cele, that was hilarious.

Joshilyn, YOU are hilarious. You and Karen must be so much fun together. Can I move back to Georgia and hang around woefully in the background, like the nerdy kid with the cool group, and pretend I am one of you?

I sent my guesses off. (What a fun little contest.)

As a Damn Yankee, I must inquire. What is poutine? Does it rhyme with routine?

Sorry, should have read yesterday's entry first. Never mind! Does sound very tasty, though.
