Monday Minute at The Daily Dribbles

My Monday Minute hosted by Kmama of The Daily Dribbles



1 - What's the specs of the first computer you owned?
Okay, I don't know the techy crap but does the word "Vic-20" sound familiar to anyone? How about that creepy red robot "computer" called "Merlin"?  Did those antiques even have specs?

2 - Are you on Twitter/Facebook/etc, if so link it/them up
Not on Twitter.  MenoDeb is on Facebook but I don't use it, it's all I can do to keep up with this blog!

3 - Who's more to blame for the oil mess in the gulf - BP or the Gov't and why?
Is this supposed to be a one-sentence answer? Only a minute?  How about all of the above, and the rest of us who are slaves to oil.

4 - What's your favorite Dr. Suess book?
Oh that's so easy - "Green Eggs & Ham"

And finally...

5 - What did you want to be when you grew up?
Alive, let's just say that growing up with a raging alcoholic father can make a child question their safety from time to time.  


And that's my "Monday Minute" or "Daily Dribble", maybe a bit of both!

Loved your answer for #5. Sadly, that's what far too many children dream of.
