Just about everything except spinning, weaving.

Cheryl- Jelly Belly's are my secret vice, but I only like the fruit ones.

The buttered popcorn are vile.

Cheryl! It's Amy - the person who spoiled you for the Sock Swap. I'm such a dork and forgot to send the card. I'm mailing it on Friday.

You can email me at alynnturk AT gmail DOT com. I tried to email you but Yahoo bounced it back.
