I saw this over at Linda's place (who, by the way, makes some really darling hair bows for the little lassies - you should check them out!), and since I rock at Scattergories, I thought I'd go for it. Well, I rock at Scattergories as long as I am not playing against my husband, the all-time champion of every board game every invented since the beginning of time. It is maddening and awe-inspiring at the same time. But I digress . . .
The basic premise of Scattergories is to answer questions from a slew of random categories, with all of the answers beginning with the same letter. In our house, we also list as many answers for each category as we can think of before the time expires, although I'm not sure if that is in the original rules of the game. All of my answers will begin with "A" since that is the first letter of my name; at least, I'm pretty sure that's how this meme goes.

I now pass the fun on to anyone who has the time for it, or who, like some who shall remain anonymous, doesn't really have the time but does it anyway.
