These are fun to do and read the answers. Kind of a walk down memory lane as we recall all these and dredge them up from our dusty musty attic of memories - it least mine is dusty, lol. Thanks for stopping at my blog today. I'll be back to read more on yours.

Elena said...

Skinny dip!! You and Gina both? Together? What would your father think?

Trish said...

Actually, we weren't together......
that's weird.

As far as what my father would think? this is my guess:

"Wow, those girls sure had a lot of fun when I wasn't looking....."

Britt said...

Rock Band totally counts as being in a band.

Only in that game can I be a hardcore guitar player =-)
