I never do these things, but I went over to Moms The Word's blog - my friend Kay's Mom and I loved her answers so much, I thought I'd do it. So here it is. Random. Useless. But fun.

Great list. It's so enlightening.

Hmm. You sound like a writer. Wonder why that didn't make your list?

Kay Day said...

You don't like Celine, but you like Whitney?

Robbie Iobst said...

Kay, Whitney sings different songs. Celine sings the same song. Over and over and over. :0)

Kay Day said...

See, that's what I think about Whitney, too. Same song. Different words.

Robbie Iobst said...

Kay, you're wrong. I love you, but don't be saying those cockamamie words about Whitney. Never. Never. :0)

I feel like I had a conversation with my teenage daughter. LOL It made me feel right at home.

Your post was funny, but I like Celine Dion. But I like Whitney too, what can I say. :)

So we are total opposites about the morning thing. I do my best work after lunch. For sure. I am babysitting my grand baby at 8:30 tomorrow morning. Pray for me.

I so agree with you about Mandessa. She rocks. I'm hoping that is my mothers day gift.

I'm neutral about Celine but I am sick of the Titanic song. Too sad.

My high school experience was more like an arm pit.

I know you'll be surprised to learn that I like to sit in the front, near all the action and away from all the distraction.

I might play along with this one because it's a good diversion from actually writing. :)
