I launched this little meme on June 30, 2006.  Shout-out to Cat. of Sweet Memes, who was the only other participant that week (a few days later!), and she still participates with us here.  🙂

The questions in that first week were about colors, so this week let’s do shapes.

  1. What shape is your mood today?
  2. What snack comes in a fun shape?
  3. Someone’s building your dream house, but it has to be in the shape of a letter of the alphabet.  Which letter do you choose?
  4. What’s a great song with a shape in its title or lyrics?*
  5. What’s something in your line of sight that can reasonably be called blob-shaped?

Thanks for participating, and have a wonderful weekend!

* I know I ask some version of this question almost every week but I think it’s really fun to see everyone’s answers.
