bullet points to answer

Most of the time  I like to read in bullet points.  I think in bullet points, so it makes sense that I would write in short bullet points too. 
I do not like my blog to go on and on and on. (get to the point will ya)

I read the blog of a witty witty woman, a real writer, (unlike me who uses the adj witty twice to get my point across!!) She is a total Seattle woman (do you know what I mean?), with a recent college grad daughter and high school senior son.
Mrs. G      http://derfwadmanor.squarespace.com/imported-20110328043219/2011/7/14/wednesday-13no-reason-no-motive-just-curious.html



Her blog can sometimes be a little off color but always true to Mrs. G’s nature. Her ideas and writing are addictive. I miss her when she stops, which she does frequently (she had a little run in from her home school group on Pioneer Woman)--but I digress.

She posted a questioner that I thought was quite enlightening...     Enter my bullet points..
This is a little longer post of questions than I normally like, but each question is intriguing. 
I thought....
WHAT DO MY READERS THINK...
