So here's a meme that's going around, and I thought "maybe I'll try it out" .  But look at some of the questions - these are things your local cat-burglar or stalker would want to know, scattered in amongst stuff about candles and decor.  Or am I just being paranoid?

Face scrub that I use as body wash.

No, but that's because I just finished it off.  Nom.

I also just tossed the strawberries that I noticed were getting a little too old.

4. What would you change about your living room?

New coffee table!

5. Are the dishes in your dishwasher clean or dirty?

Have never used the dishwasher.  There's only one of me, how hard is it to wash up? (Pretty hard, it seems, dirty dishes are in the sink.)

No, but I haved canned mushroom soup.

Black purse-size maglight.  Makes lovely reading light when power goes out!
