Gee, I thought maybe I'd make your list as the craziest dream...remember? This was an interesting list and long...but completely enjoyable when you really like the person who did the list!!!

paintergirl said...

I'm still trying to get used to your pic Mary-it's still shocks me.

You are so nice-this list is crazy crazy long.

acumamakiki said...

...she did the mash, she did the monster mash!! Funny that you titled this post with this, because Johnny Vatos (oingo boingo drummer) was the headliner on Friday and along with doing a lot of OB songs, they also did the above song which is why I could so easily pick the song!

Loved your answers, not loving that you're moving soon ~ sigh.

paintergirl said...

kiki-hands down that is my favorite halloween song. see and I was really at that concert in spirit.

oh the move and the house. what a terrible thing...what a terible time to sell, but I so want to leave this town.

marybishop said...

I'm here to give you a hug!

Also, when are you moving? Are your plans all set? It is a crazy picture of me, but I'm sort of disguised which is what I wanted to be for some people....hpblo

paintergirl said...

Thanks Mary- I really needed that hug! Today has not been so great.I told my husband the other night that I'm really setting myself up for a depressing winter if things don't change.

We had a family make an offer and it went back and forth. They would take a very LONG time getting back to us. Finally we agreed to a price and then it went days of not hearing a word. BUH. So then they backed out because it was too much money they said. They didn't realize how much it was going to be to enclose the back deck. Oh come on I say. They live on Long Island now, and please do not try to pull one over on me. You can't touch a house under half a million on LI. Please. Our house is very reasonable and nice. I just hate the city.

I hate being tied to a place that I loathe, in a city that doesn't care.

Neil said...

Fun meme! I need to try this hot water and lemon...

paintergirl said...

Hey Neil!! The man in LA. Thank you for stopping by. Oh the hot water and lemon, I swear by it. Drink the water as hot as you can stand it, and using fresh lemons is recommended. Cheers!
