Burger King? Really? Home of the Whopper and the Wife, I suppose. Nice list- I'll have my own coming out soon.
And it amazes me I enjoy school budgets, too

You are right, I DO want to be your new BFF! Did Paris really need to go through all that to find her new BFF? Well yeah, because she's Paris.

We have so much in common, it blows me away! Curly hair, flippin' burgers in high school, worked as a maid (ewww!), played little league baseball (which I despised. I would sit out in left field singing "Take me OUT of the ballgame"), scrapbooking, the list goes on and on!
