Now, I really didn't need to that one! As if I don't already obsess over how many are in food...

Elle Fredrix said...

Hmm, #6 I'm ambidextrous, so what's going to happen to me??

Rhonda Stapleton said...

Dang, that's crazy...oh, and I'm a leftie. WAAAAAH!!!

Jennifer McK said...

These were great. I didn't know about the killer donkeys. Or Debra Winger.

#10 is wayyyyy to much information-could've done without that one.

Jennifer, I love these Thurs 13's..I've got to figure out how to do them...that is my next goal, I swear..they are so much fun. Yours is hilarious!

Ciar Cullen said...

More people are killed by donkeys? Killed by donkeys? Really? Like, that horrible crash that killed 200 people...that would mean that over 200 people will be killed by donkeys this year?

Gina Ardito said...

You mean the dot over the "i" isn't called a NIPPLE? Boy are my kids gonna be crushed...

Shelley Munro said...

Good grief! I'm going to have to watch out for killer donkeys!

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...
