Great quotes, Vicki!

(Although I admit, at first I was confused as to the relevance of rice at dinner. *g)

Vicki said...

Opps, on the rice. It should be price. Thanks for telling me, I've corrected it now. :)

And Erica, what did I do wrong on the Mr. Linky? It's there but you have to click it to add your name and it still doesn't show on the page? Of all the html codes this one is drving me crazy. Especially when I'm pretty sure it's not that hard to get this one right. Help is needed for your sister TARAN.

Thanks for the great quotes, Vicki!

(And check my second comment on your blog from yesterday - we need to know what Erica got!)

Vicki said...

Bill, I've emailed her offline to come take the test and post her scores. :)

I love #11 and #13! I did a T13 with quotes several months ago--it was hard to choose...

OpenChannel said...

Great quotes. I use #2 and #3 all the time.

I hadn't heard #7 before and I love it!

Vicki - I've got the Mr. Linky's thing working right on mine. Not sure what happened. Did you check the right blogger box at the beginning? i.e. blogger (original) or blogger (new)?

Or maybe you placed the header script in the wrong place?

I've actually seen several that look like this and was wondering why, so you're not alone.

Update - 'ware spoilers!! - the answers to the HS quiz are now revealed for all to see on Miss Vicki the Quizmistress's post of yesterday (comment section).

Great quotes Vicki. I love #9. It shows he doesn't take himself too seriously:)

Happy TT!
