No, I really don't, but my sister-in-law, who's a very talented knitter, does.

If one means doing 12 ounce curls, running my mouth, and jumping to conclusions, then true. Otherwise false.

TNP has not attended a church service in over a decade.

Oh, absolutely. My latest: Scorpions by Noah Feldman, about four of FDR's appointees to the Supreme Court and their eventual arguments and rivalries. Recommended.

False. I'm so good at mental math that when we did inventory at the store, I didn't have to use a calculator (Three boxes of 24 plus 7 loose items--79!).

The next person has more than 7 credit cards in their wallet.

False. Right-handed to the core.

TNP knew that James A. Garfield was both multilingual and ambidextrous, and could write Greek with one hand and Latin with the other at the same time.

True, I can sometimes skip lunch if it's a really busy day, but never breakfast. This morning I made a frittata with asparagus and green onion.

TNP prefers pecan pie to apple.

A fan, yes, but I wouldn't say a big fan. I haven't seen many of their movies.

Definitely would have a better time with Groucho. However if I could have met him with full knowledge of the future, I might choose Karl so I could strangle him on the spot and possibly save millions from privation, tyranny, and murder

TNP prefers primitive camping to a cabin with all modern conveniences.

When I was in my 20's I would have, but now I'll take all the modern conveniences I can get.

Nope. I was busy floating in amniotic fluid when it happened.

TNP puts hot sauce on a lot of foods... largely for the machismo factor

More for the taste than for the machismo, and not all that much food, so false.

True. Just found out I will be making an international move in about two weeks. Cleaning frenzy coming. Tossing all the junk out, and packing the rest to ship.

TNP has an April birthday.
