Fun tag questions - I enjoyed reading your responses. How was that ginger cake? And isn't Lost in Translation a wonderful movie? It's one of my favorites...the music, the scenery, the loneliness and isolation of a big city.

Done! I can never make up my mind on the book/film ones, so I skipped them.

A pretty cake shop would be fun! You'd have to learn not to eat the profits, though...

melissa said...
