So I’m trying to get at least one blog entry done a day. But sometimes, the muse, she doesn’t want to play. So this evenings missive is going to be a ramble aided and abetted by….a random myspace survey…. I also thought this would be a nice way for some of my newer readers and commenters to catch up on things country mouse also – it’s great to see you guys and I’m loving reading your blogs too!

Let’s get comfy and get our ramble on, shall we? Oh, and if you fancy nicking the questions to use as a survey / meme / email / ritual sacrifice, you go on right ahead, honey!

    Crosswalker…just to define in the *Can you?* section, gleeking is spitting in a spray, somehow off the roof of your mouth so it lands in this sprinkling shower in a vast array. I know because I don’t know how many times in Jr. High I was gleeked upon. UGH! Boys!!
