  1. That should be an interesting next life!

  2. Way cool, Rachel! I love that motto, too ;-).


  3. I'm with Naomi...should be interesting; try to let us know how that goes.

    I like your motto, too. Isn't this fun?

  4. Too fun! Love your next life answer, too, though I'd like to be Crais's raincoat.

    I'm terrified of snakes so your life motto is a good one to remember!

  5. I feel the motto can be applied in so many situations (v. good book, too, btw). :)

    Re next life: I figure if you're the swather of the poo flinger it's much less likely that you will be the poo flingee...

    PCN - snicker re your raincoat dream...hopefully he also keeps it "down his pants."

    Jen - so fun, but where's yours? I looked but maybe it's not posted yet.
