Happy Halloween from the Bean

trick or treat
small my feet
good food through my tube to eat
if you don’t
i’ll kick and spin
and give you heartburn
ha! i win.

Annie: A Quiz – The Results Show

the dawn of the next morrow’s neep tide (or, tuesday) has arrived, and so too have the answers for Annie: A Quiz. sit back, strap in, and hold on to your fez, here be the info:

01. T. her belly filled with fluid and she could hardly move. but as we all know, Annie couldn’t have died like that. she’s destined to go out in either a blaze of gunfire, or a fit of exhaustion (catching lizards).

02. T. easily 100 lizards. we used to keep track for curiosity sake but stopped when lizards were caught every day, multiple times a day (Annie does not kill the lizards, just brings them to Erin and i as presents, so we are able to save most of them – most = the lizards that Jude does not get to).

03. purple. very stylish little girl.

04. besides looking cute, Annie was well know as a “jumper.” she was capable of jumping a good three feet or more in the air when prompted by a most appealing cat toy.

05. Rick. hey, don’t write that. they know i’m kidding, of course Annie loves us both the same. then you should say that. i’m just joking, besides, Annie does love me more. stop it, she does not. oh yeah? yeah. okay, she loves us both equally. good.

06. both of us. good. if both of us means Rick. hey, that’s not fair. the truth isn’t always fair. that’s not funny. in the context of this little blurb it is. i suppose so. i’m glad you agree, now i’ll change it to say that Annie loves both of us equally. thank you. your welcome.

07. all of them. that’s correct, Annie has indeed caught a squirrel (a full size squirrel).

08. Lucy. Erin liked Lucy and i liked Annie, and Annie stuck.

09. T. just like a monkey.

10. all of them. there are many other names Annie has been called but these names are the most often used (monkey being used as much or more than her actual name).

so there you have it, the skinny on mrs. skinny. Annie would like to thank the Academy, her agent, the supporting cast and crew that made everything possible, her mom, dad and brother, and most importantly, dog.

* stay tuned for another whimsical romp, the spotlight turning this time to a little orange man who’s large and in charge: Jude.
