Axl, Slash, and Muskrat Love I understand... but Tetris???

I am proud to be a Tetris fiend. :) No guilt in it at all! Well, unless there's a bottle of vodka, plastic sheets, and chocolate syrup. Then you could feel guilty. But not so much about the Tetris. :)

Oooooh, you sure know how to live, but just get it over with and love these things in the open---especially MeatLoaf. Just put on one of those big-ass motorcycle-loving CDs, crank up the bass and see how fast your vacuuming gets done

Jen - It's not the game itself as much as the time I've spent playing it. I'm an addict.

I get to share a Mardi Gras King Cake with my parents every year sent up by my brother via the mail. In the four years I have partaken of it, I have not once gotten the baby.

Ah, the Monte Cristo sandwich. Who in the hell thought to batter and deep fry a sandwich, sprinkle it with powdered sugar and serve it with rasberry jam? They were an evil genius. Axel Rose and "Sweet Child of Mine" still touches a chord in my "I want a younger doper rock star" heart. Just think how boring we would be without our guilty pleasures.

Ed - One of the girls at the office made a home-made King Cake and it was heaven on a plate.

Cindy - Sweet Child of Mine was the song I chose for my son and I to dance at his wedding. We used the Sheryl Crow version.

Renee - I just looked at your blog and we share a lot of the same likes and dislikes. Weird.
