20 questions…

Truth or dare…
I never…
Two truths and lie…
Oh! These games! Usually conducted as a drinking game or an email meme in the days of yore before Facebook, these games are a great way to get to know the person sitting in the circle with you. One of our blogroll members, Lulu from The Wild Rumpus, emailed us with a great suggestion that we put it out to there to our readers so that “…we all could get to know each other a little better outside of infertility and pregnancy/parenthood. I bet we would all have a lot more in common than those things, and it would also be fun to learn more about what I call our “previous lives”: high school, college, early career, pre-baby hobbies that may have ended or changed since we became pregnant/parents.”
We couldn’t agree more. The blogosphere has been quiet lately…so let’s liven it up and have a little fun! Below you will find 20 questions to answer honestly, hilariously  seriously…whatever! Write up a post with your answers sometime in the next week and submit your post below by Thursday, March 7. We will post the list and links of all the participating bloggers next Friday, March 8. You can then get to know everyone a little better and likely have a chuckle at their expense. Glasses of wine optional, but encouraged (erm… unless you’re pregnant. We gotta say it. Legal stuff, I think).
Les Questions
  1. What was the last thing you threw in the garbage/recycling?

  10. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?
  11. What is the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
  12. What is your biggest pet peeve?
  13. If you could know the answer to any question, what would it be?

  15. Recommend a book, movie, or television show in three sentences or less.
  16. What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
  17. What was the first album you bought with your own money?
  18. If someone wrote a book about you, what would be the title?
