Blue/green/hazel eyes? Purty!

I liked your answer for "I". So true!

Thanks for stopping by Dracenea! You should see the eyes of each member of the family. My wife has beautiful green eyes, her pupils are bigger than the normal person, they looks like the eyes of a cat. Our little boy have inherited of pale blue eyes with the pupils of his mother... He is so handsome. He is the pride of his father :-)

Another thing, yesterday I had a thought for you as I was browsing the inventory of one store in Quebec City. I saw some mana and health potions next to the horror movies figurines stand.

Weekend is almost over... I wish everyone out there a great week!

Dracenea said...

Your family sounds like a magical bunch with all of those beautiful eyes!

Were they the same mana/health potions that I had on my blog? Either way, very cool!

Have a great week yourself!

Strangely enough, you have the same habit as my husband (Answer "H") :D

Love the quote!

PumpkinBrain said...

Dracenea: I don't know if we looks like a magical bunch but I like the idea. The mana/health potions I saw was the same you described on your blog.

Halloween Spirit: I guess it's a common habit among guys. I let my clothes in the corner for one day or two then I get annoyed of the mess and I put everything back in the closet. The same apply for my tools in the garage but it can take weeks before cleaning my mess. :-)

No that this is a very scientific research type thing....but from your the way husband acts. I don't think programmers can put laundry in a basket.

Just an observation :D


PumpkinBrain said...

A quick poll among my co-workers seems to indicate you are right Frog Queen. Programmer tend to let their clothes on the floor instead of putting it back in the closet or drawer. I should try to change that habit. I don't want to give that example to my little boy. He is too young now to take example on his father but one day, this will change.

Good evening to you all!
