1.  Pool cover, yes or no?  (if you don't have a pool, answer as if you did).

2.  What color is your front door?

3.  Do you like to shop at thrift stores?

4.  How many purses do you own and do any of them violate trademark laws?

5.  Your next vacation: Cruise or Disney?  (Death is not an option)

1.  Pool cover, yes or no?  (if you don't have a pool, answer as if you did). - When we had a pool, we did have a cover. It was a solar cover, however, intended more for keeping the heat in the water.  We didn't cover the pool nightly, but did keep it covered when out-of-season.

2.  What color is your front door? -- an ugly file-cabinet gray. Blech.

3.  Do you like to shop at thrift stores? -- ehh, sometimes.

4.  How many purses do you own and do any of them violate trademark laws? -- Currently I have 5-6 in my closet. And no.

5.  Your next vacation: Cruise or Disney?  (Death is not an option) -- Given those two choices? Cruise.

1.  Pool cover, yes or no?  (if you don't have a pool, answer as if you did). Hypothetically, yes.

2.  What color is your front door? White, although the storm door is dark red.

3.  Do you like to shop at thrift stores? Sometimes.  If one is on my way, I'll peek my head in.  I don't go regularly enough to find the really good deals (or maybe I'm just not creative enough to see the potential in some stuff.)

4.  How many purses do you own and do any of them violate trademark laws? 2, none violate trademark laws.

5.  Your next vacation: Cruise or Disney?  (Death is not an option)  Hypothetically, Disney.

You mean I have to pick one or the other, right? The least evil has to be the cruise. I know you love DIsney, and God bless and all, but I would be getting out the nipple forks (although, wait, that is not really applicable anymore ;), but metaphorically speaking anyway) long before we even reached Orlando. Down here you can rent very nice, full-service yachts. It could be fun to go around the Aegaen on one of those with a group of good friends. Wanna come?</strong></p>

You can use a nipple fork to remove all manner of bodily parts--some go easier than others, obviously ;)

But yes, "Death is not an option" means you have to choose one of them--and yes, I would SO be there if you rented a yacht for an Aegaen cruise :D

We do indeed.  And for the fun of it, I just googled, "I'd rather remove my nipples with a fork" and discovered that 5 of the 6 results were written by you and me.  :D

Indeed.  And the 6th person is someone from my Current Debates/NOTI days.  :)

I think we would, as we live in the city. Lots of foot traffic around. 

2.  What color is your front door?

Front door-blue.

Back door-red.

3.  Do you like to shop at thrift stores?

Yes. 

4.  How many purses do you own and do any of them violate trademark laws?

Five. They all have diffrerent functions. Large tote bag to lug laptop/textbooks around campus, wristlet wallet for quick trips, two smaller wearable bags for long shopping escapades, and one medium-sized bag that carries my non-school necessities when we travel.

I don't think any of them violate any laws, though both of my smaller bags are higher-end brands. I used to be a personal selling assistant on ebay and slowly over time sold off a large amount of very expensive purses and wallets from a local wealthy woman and she gifted me a nice Fendi shoulder bag because I adored it. The other is a Coach bag that I picked up from ebay that was in rough shape. It's an older model, black leather flap bag that can be worn cross-body. I got it for $20 because the leather had been neglected. It needed some intense moisturizing before it became usable once again. In both cases, I'm certain that both bags are legit, just because I handled so many of those brands previously.

5.  Your next vacation: Cruise or Disney?  (Death is not an option)

Disney if it's Paris or Hong Kong, just so I can see the surrounding areas.

A cruise if it's Alaskan, but you'd never get my husband on a civilian boat.

My sister bought a house last Summer with an inground pool.  Her pool remains open all Summer which she spends a lot of time cleaning too, Oh the pleasures...  I'm thinking a cover is off season only.
