Making it Last…

Submitted by on October 22, 2010 – 12:37 pm5 Comments

You know that we here, at the Tiki Tiki, are all about stories and chismes and getting to know each other. Think of it as a big slumber party where we all get to share the things we love and hate and like and want.

I’ll just get the conversation started today by asking a few questions and answering them myself. Then you just copy and paste into the comment section and give us your answers. Deal?

Okay, here’s my answers to The Last Quiz:

The last book I read: My Fair Lazy by Jen Lancaster

The last new friend I made: Mary – she lives in Laguna and thinks I’m funny.

The last place I visited: Miami!

The last movie or TV show I watched: Letters to Juliet (and I loved it. Big sap. I know).

The last kind deed I did: Made a meal for someone who was sick.

The last meal I prepared: Carne con papas.

The last gift I gave: A Barnes & Noble gift card to an avid reader.

The last person I called: My mom. She is coming to spend the weekend and I was picking her up this evening. She wants me to get her right now. (Maybe a better title for this would be The last fight I had.) =D

The last picture on my camera: A picture of my “hotbiscus.” It’s a hibiscus, but it’s a super hot pink color and it grows to the size of a dinner plate. I get quite excited when it blooms.

The last thing I Googled:“how to take a screen shot with my Mac” (It’s command-shift-4 to get just the portion you want, but that’s not important right now).

So now, it’s your turn…..Let’s get this Tiki Tiki going….

Share, por favor!
