For Wednesday, from Blogdrive Insanity

Wednesday Mind Hump

Today's mind hump isn't very exciting, but it's good for you so you have to do it whether you like it or not. Today, you see, is Finish Your Veggies day. So take that look off your face and answer the following, or no dessert!

1. What is your favorite veggie? potatoes

2. Are there any veggies you don't eat? squash

3. Which veggie do you think has the funniest name? rutabaga

4. If you're a vegetarian, why are you and do you like it? If you're not a vegetarian, would you ever want to become one? I'm not and wouldn't want to be - don't think I'd miss meat that much, but I enjoy too many meat by-products and can't be bothered with trying to figure out what is and isn't - I just wanna eat!

The lyric sound of laughter
Fills all the April hills
The joy-song of the crocus,
The mirth of daffodils.

Those Cat Haiku you come up with are soooo great! They nail it right on the head, don't they?

I LOVE James Patterson's books, too! Those short chapters are the greatest, aren't they? Always end up reading more than I otherwise would, because I'm always thinking "I can't read just one more..."
