Yay for the Gemini in you! The quiz is a great snapshot, don't you think. I'm intending to use it as a base for a BOM, but I've only done A=Age and H=Height so far. I have the other answers, just no scrapbook pages!!

Delys said...

That was such an interesting A to Z Mel! I LOLed at your ironing...totally me except I still refuse to do it unless its for the kids! Loved all of your answers and to boot you are a Gemini like me!!
