She tagged me with this meme/award which is now known as The Super Awesome Hot Mama Blogger or some [edit:] shizzle (SAHMBOSS) meme/award. So you can blame her for the introduction of naughty language to this blog (oh, you know you say it too), the ensuing waste of your time, and in the case of some of you, your being tagged too.
Below are my answers to some scintillating (or not) questions. I have tried to incorporate “ice cream” into as many as possible. Then I will “tag” some more of you SAHMBOSS chicas to post your answers, tag your friends, yada yada yada, we’ll all know way too much about each other.
