Stole 100 questions; you're welcome...

Yea, I stole 'em. Stole these questions from my friend Dena's blog. (Thanks, Dena!) She stole 'em from her friend Tamara's. Yes it's long. But you're hot really focusing that well today, anyway, are you? Plus you're tired from all that shopping. Go 'head on...read it! Then steal it for your own blog. Or add a comment telling of your own fun experience with whatever story this triggers in your memory!
