That was a very random meme.

Don't you kind-of wonder about the people who come up with these questions? I mean, last time you ate a home grown tomato??? Why is that important? What does that tell us about you? And have you ever thrown up in public???? Does this person really want to read a bunch of barf stories? Well, I guess so. Hmmm...

1) You owned a moped in Taiwan?!?! Whoa, I was too chicken get one, or to let D get one, either.

2) Hey! I worked at La Petite Boulangerie, which was owned by Mrs. Fields! I met her when she stopped by once. (Very glamorous and enthusiastic.)
