2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Yesterday -- I finished the book "One Day" by David Nicholls and just put my head down and sobbed. It reminded me that life and love is precious and that every day with someone you really love is a gift. I'm also super-mushy right now, detoxing from sugar ;)

Ha ha ha -- well, I drive a silver PT Cruiser with a crazy custom paint job -- three shades of blue ribbons or waves airbrushed in a wavy pattern all around the car -- we bought the car this way on eBay because it was a few grand below Kelly book value. I call it the Clown Car. The upside is I never lose it in a parking lot. The downside is my stalking career is OVER.
50. DO YOU LIKE ANSWERING 50 QUESTIONS?
Yes because they weren't super-personal like "What is your deepest regret?" or "Have you ever slept with anyone without knowing their last name" or anything like that which would give me great pause. :)
If you play, too...let me know in my comments so I can come check out your answers! Thanks for reading!
I'm going downstairs to the BadA*s Basement Fitness Center to do 10 minutes on the treadmill (at least) and do The Firm "Target Toning Zero-In-Ten" which I found in the clearance aisle at WalMart.
I'm looking forward to exercise for the first time in weeks, I think I got my Spark back after feeling really lost for a while! YAY!
