I love your answers Mary-Laure - could you pass some of that hard drive to me?

I just want to make sure there are 133 beads on the bottom of a pair of Tod's mocassins, which I found out is not quite true.

A World in a PAN said...

Bronwyn said...

Thanks for your comment:) Nice to meet you, I also definitely couldn't live without my laptop or my books.

Merruli said...

It was so nice to get to know these things about you. Cashmere throw sounds so good.

mansuetude said...

great answers--love The Hours, too. I think the movie is better than the book.

So, am surprised to not have you mention that beautiful Oracle. :)

Mrs.French said...

I love this tag! It was a nice opportunity to get to know you better. I think I may like you even more now!

Mary-Laure said...

MANSUETUDE - ah, the Oracle! Well, the tag rules made it clear that one should list THINGS rather than people or creatures, that's the only reason he was left out.
Of course I couldn't want to live without him! He is my joy and tenderness and fun!
And I'm 100% with you on The Hours; the book was kind of disappointing!

sealaura said...
