Another Five Question Friday.

Woo hoo! It's Friday. Although the week has gone by fairly quickly, I'm really looking forward to the weekend. Three words: Festival ofColors!! We're going to go hang with the llamas and Krishnas :)

It's 5QF again. Thanks Mama M. And thanks to everyone who commented last week. That was fun!

1. Did you pass your driver's test on the first try?

Not only did I pass it on the first try, I got 100%. And it was scary! One of the testers in our little town, was missing an arm, but he had this large, cold, steel hook where his hand should have been. EVERYONE who had to take the driving test hoped, prayed, lit a candle, or whatever religious affectation they could muster, wishing they'd get any instructor but "The Claw."

I don't think I'm too happy about getting old!!! Anyway, have a crack at the questions Mama M has put up for us. If you want to join . . . I'd love to know more about you. Or just leave a comment for me :)

Bob Hope. My brothers followed him in to the Men's room and got his autograph . . . which I still have.

How much time do you spend on the computer a day?Will you pay for your children's college or raise them to pay for their own way?Have you ever been in a car accident?What is your favorite book?Do you make your bed everyday?
Here are my answers:

1. How much time do you spend on the computer a day?

Well . . . do I have to really admit how much? I work all day on the computer and you would think I wouldn't want to touch the thing when I get home. But, alas, I'm hooked on one thing and I guess I WILL admit it here . . . FARMVILLE! I need to get those crops harvested and my eggs collected. So, to answer the question, I probably spend about 8-9 hours a day. That sounds awful!!

2. Will you pay for your children's college or raise them to pay for their own way?

I have a unique situation. I've worked for severa…
