Ya Do or Ya Don't

This list was spurred by a conversation about PT Cruisers -- you know those cars? I think they are totally retro cool, but about half my kids think they're dumb looking. Seems they're one of those things: either you like 'em or you don't.

We compiled a list of some more.


1. black licorice

2. sushi

3. game shows

4. polka music

5. the new vw bugs

6. roller coasters
7. math

8. fishing

9. oysters

10. hot sauce

11. horror movies

12. musicals

13. Will Ferrell

14. stick shifts

15. Barry Manilow

16. slapstick

17. Dumb and Dumber

18. diagramming sentences

19. African Savanna Documentaries

20. memes
* For the record, I: 1. don't, 2. do, 3. don't, 4. don't, 5. don't, 6. do, 7. don't, 8. don't, 9. do, 10. don't, 11. don't, 12. do, 13. don't, 14. don't, 15. don't, 16. do, 17. don't, 18. do, 19. don't, 20. do
How about you?

These things are always so much fun to me...you learn so much more about a person.

While I love fish fish (no error here), I do NOT like shell fish and I also prefer to have my fish not still swimming when I eat it!

I do like black licorice and stick shifts, but definitely not horror movies or dumb and dumber (the name just says SO much and I had to quit watching it after the toilet scene)!

Can't remember all the rest, but be assured the answers would be do and don't!! :o)


blessings and hugs,

goofy and goofier

The loathed one is the diagramming sentences. I could see how it could be fun if I could have learned it by a person teaching it to me . . . we all hated it in this house.

DON'T: 1,2,6,7(blah, patoeey),8,9,10,11,13,16,17

Here goes...do, don't, don't, don't, do, don't, don't, do, don't, don't, don't, do, do, don't, do, do, don't, do, don't, do....I think you could set this to music. It has a pretty good rhythm. "Don't" you think? :) Have a grand evening!!!! Cathy

I don't know if they're all that black and white...
1. LOVE it--do
2. Have made it, but I didn't like it. Candy sushi is the best though--don't do
3. I liked old game shows (remember the Match Game), but not the current breed--don't do
4. Uh, don't do.
5. They are cute, my friend has one--do.
6. I used to seek them out, but then about 5 years ago I blacked out on one for just a moment, and I decided that was a clue to stop--no longer do.
7. I rock at fifth grade math, but I don't love it--don't do.
8. Don't do.
9. No seafood, nothing that swam before I killed it (well not me, but someone killed it)--don't do.
10. not the real thing--don't do.
11. DO NOT DO!
12. Hard to say!
13. Do!
14. ABSOLUTELY DO, although this one will be my last, but since it's a Honda, I still have about 125,000 miles to put on it.
15. Totally into him as a girl, so I can't say don't do now, that would be disrespectful to my young self.
16. Don't do.
17. Never seen it (so does that affirm the answer to 16?)
18. Never done it...
19. Never seen one, so that's a don't do.
20. Still unsure of what they are! Is this one?
