Hi CFJ! Read the answers again. I changed it.
1. Yes, washing one's hair with beer provides shine and silkiness. I used to all the time! My dad would hunt me down to make sure I did and not drink it! The proof was in the smell of my scalp!
2. Grilled Halloumi is a new thing for me and we love it! Can I learn to make it myself?
3. Never!
4. I want to work but think I would kill my colleagues.
I would need a maid, full time to take care of the house, cats and cooking!
5. Yes! In WHITE PALACE with Susan Sarandon (she is tiny) and James Spader and Luis Mandoki (director and Mexican with red hair). Unfortunately, I was cut out. All of the extras in St. Louis were cut out. I played a New York artist. I was cool back then. Am still!
6. Amouage is the world's most expensive perfumes from Oman with many scents.
7. Thank you my dear!
8. It was freaky! It was dark and in a lake. It was exhilarating.

Thanks for tagging me!
