First Fives!

Since I participated in this yesterday over at RockStarMommy's site, I figured I should post it here. This also gives me a great chance to plug RockStarMommy who does, as her name suggests, totally rock!

Without further ado, list the first 5 things that come to mind for all 5 categories.

1. Electric
2. Kid's Books You Liked
3. Having Fun
4. Green
5. September

No cheating, but here are my original answers...

Electric: guitar, Company (am I the only one who remember that show?), Light Orchestra, Bugaloo, LadyLand.

Kids Books: Where the Wild Things Are, Where the Sidewalk Ends, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Wrinkle In Time, Wizard of Oz.

Having Fun: Paris, long blues solos, dancing in my kitchen, reading a good book, singing Foo Fighters songs at the top of my lungs while driving.

Green: leaves, tea, "its not easy being," grass, River.

September: 11th, school, fall, Labor Day, traffic.

I would comment on this... but that would seem a little repetitious, now wouldn't it? ;)

Hey Chris...rather than posting my responses here, I've put them up over at my site. I swear I didn't look at yours or Rock Star Mommy's first.

No way - you are plain wrong.
