John Jacob Jinglehiemerschmitt (his name is my name too, after all)

Dantallion said...

Weetabix? Really?

Susan as herself said...

Mmmm. I love Weetabix too. I eat them dry, like cookies.

Barbara said...

Darrin,

Even though your NOT a chimpanzee you could be an entertainer. You sure as heck entertained me with these answers...10 followed by 11 - ha!
The only answer that disturbed me was eliminating my personal favorite of the US states! And you know why.
You also chose to visit my favorite country, and again, you know why :)

lauren: Glad I could entertain.

dantallion: Yeah, my wife got me into Weetabix. Growing up I used to like Cracklin' Oat Bran and Crispy Wheats & Raisins (do they even make that one any more? It was a General Mills cereal).

Susan: I like mine with sugar or honey and milk.

Barbara: Growing up in NY state there's a natural NY/NJ rivalry that I grew up with, that's where my anti-NJ sentiment comes from. I used to date a girl from NJ and almost moved there much to the surprise of some of my closest friends.

Lauren said...

OH I forgot to clobber you about NJ along with Barbara. It is my home state. I wouldn't want to live there...but I hate when people bash it!

Brice said...

Mmmmm, I forgot about Weetabix.
Then again, I also forgot that I did this meme...
