20. Where were you born? Oklahoma

So we began buying TP at a local market until they took all their TP off their shelves. You had to request toilet paper if you wanted to buy any. Lol! It was a great night until we were stopped by the small town policeman.

I LOVE 24. However I missed the 2-hour episode on Monday. I guess I'll have to now wait for the CD.

I hope you can still luv me - I have 2 tattoos. ;)

Pilot Mom said...

Oh, Gayla, you know that I'll still luv ya!!! :)

:) These things are so cool! Such fun to learn odds and ends about the people we visit & come to know across the world!

I may try to post this at my place. I never know if I'll feel like fooling w/a post these days. Um, and a serious one might send folks into shock, kwim?

So...I LOVE LOST and am dying for the 2nd season to come out on DVD. That's how we watched season 1. I'd only seen a tidbit of a couple of episodes, and was SO intrigued, but I hate not having the whole enchilada, so to speak.

We're almost thru Alias on DVD's. Blockbuster Online is GREAT! Nothing like watching a show all the way thru w/o commercial! Woo!

Oh, and I'd have never guessed your eyes are blue!! They don't look blue in any of your pictures. Hmph. :)

I know a bunch of people from Ardmore! Did you graduate from high school there?

Pilot Mom said...

No, JB, we moved when I was about 1 or 13-14 mos. My dad was a pilot in the AF so we did a lot of moving in my life. :)
