The fact that you run screaming from the room at the sight of a Western shows excellent taste, IMO. :)
Well, thank you. :)

If anyone ever asks me what me favorite Western is (and that's rare because people know me pretty well) I say Blazing Saddles. Hey, it's got horses and cowboys, it counts. :p
Agreed about the Westerns and many other things. In fact, this is a very tempting meme, and I just might do it.

Nope. Still too lazy:)

Hee. Yeah, if it wasn't for he complete lack of anything to do at lunch yesterday, I don't think I would have been motivated either. Glad to see he Western hate is alive and well. :)
