  • a) Panda bear or Koala bear? Panda

    b) In my opinion, the royal baby is ____________.  not any different than any other baby, just born into lucky circumstances.

    c) I DO/ I DO NOT believe in ghost.  I DO/ I DO NOT believe in aliens. I DO/ I DO NOT believe in things like bigfoot/yeti/loch ness monster. Why or why not? 

    I do not believe in ghosts. I don't believe in an afterlife, so ghosts don't really work either.

      I believe there could be aliens out there, but I don't believe they come to earth and abduct or probe people.  The universe is a pretty big place.  

    I do not believe in big foot/yeti/etc.  If they existed, I think we would have seen proof by now. 

    d) Your company is forcing you to dress up as a Disney character* for a day and walk the streets of your community. Thank goodness you can choose which character that is. Who do you choose and why? (* you can be any fully costumed character, like a Mickey Mouse, or be any human-type character, a la Ariel, the mermaid)

    Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, just because it was one of my favorites growing up. 

    e) My favorite kind of ice cream is mint chocolate chip but I'm really not into orange sherbert (DH LOVES it!  Blah.).

    f) I know all the words to this television theme song: I watch a lot of TV, but I can't think of any right now that have words in the theme song, so many now just have background music!

    TTC #1 7/10, Me (31)- Dx DOR (AMH 0.6); DH (30)- normal
    BFP on Cycle #8. Natural M/C at ~8 weeks
    IUI #1 and #2 (8/12, 9/12)- 50 mg Clomid + Ovidrel = BFNs
    IVF #1 (EPP) 13R/10M/9F, 5DT 1-4AA blast, beta #1-148, beta #2-322, 5 frosties!

  • a) Panda bear or Koala bear?  Koala

    b) In my opinion, the royal baby is _a very fortunate baby___________.

    c) I DO/ I DO NOT believe in ghost.  I DO/ I DO NOT believe in aliens. I DO/ I DO NOT believe in things like bigfoot/yeti/loch ness monster. Why or why not?

    I do believe in Ghosts/spirits because I do believe my grandmother came to me in a dream and told me that everything was going to be ok.  Call me crazy, but I do believe that.  Aliens maybe, but not like martians who are going to attack the world. Big foot etc... no 

    d) Your company is forcing you to dress up as a Disney character* for a day and walk the streets of your community. Thank goodness you can choose which character that is. Who do you choose and why? (* you can be any fully costumed character, like a Mickey Mouse, or be any human-type character, a la Ariel, the mermaid)

    Princess Jasmine... I'd love to fly around on a magic carpet... and she is just so pretty! 

    e) My favorite kind of ice cream is: Brownie nut fudge but I'm really not into Mint Chocolate Chip

    f) I know all the words to this television theme song: Fresh Prince of Bellair!

    c) I DO/ I DO NOT believe in ghost.  I DO/ I DO NOT believe in aliens. I DO/ I DO NOT believe in things like bigfoot/yeti/loch ness monster. Why or why not? I think there is a lot of evidence to ghosts and I cannot believe we are the only living beings in the entire universe. Bigfoot, etc. are just urban legends.

    d) Your company is forcing you to dress up as a Disney character* for a day and walk the streets of your community. Thank goodness you can choose which character that is. Who do you choose and why? (* you can be any fully costumed character, like a Mickey Mouse, or be any human-type character, a la Ariel, the mermaid) Totally Aurora - aka Sleeping Beauty.
