I love your posting. Especially the one that says you want to live next to me! Rick said when we are old we can live next to each other.

I'm sitting here reading this post while noshing on Ikea meatballs, dropped my fork twice when I saw so many similarities! Steinbeck, the F word, Not Ready To Make Nice... though I'm not surprised. :o)

So anyhoo... I'm reading it and thinking to myself, "I'm gonna swipe this meme and do it". And there at the bottom you've given it to me! See... more kismit (kizmit? Kissmit? Kismet>).
