I'm posting this meme because it reminded me of something.

Browsing in Brochin's last Passover I saw a book intended to acquaint Children with the Seder. It was by Shari Lewis and was called "Lamb Chop's Passover Surprise."

This amazed me and amused me. Just what IS Lamb Chop's passover surprise anyway? Guess whose blood is going on the doorpost? Guess whose foreleg is going to adorn the Seder Plate. I really should read this book and see if Lamb Chop survives.

This is the problem with LJ, we all think we are so close, and we know nothing about each other. I'm going to rectify it. I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me, something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

Maureen Dowd
You are Maureen Dowd! You like to give people silly
nicknames and write in really short, non
sequitur paragraphs. You're the most playful of
the columnists and a rock-ribbed liberal, but
are often accused of being too flamboyant and
frivolous. You tend to focus on style over
substance, personality over politics. But your
heart is in the right place. Plus, you are a
total fox.
