    Cats As Residents And Their Nationalities

    When I worked there 10 yrs ago (aside from coming across my own return - like a prize - and getting a floor-full of applause) I came across one return from a little old lady who counted her cats as residents and (like 11) and listed their "nationalities". Now I think...

    How Many Rooms/bedrooms

    and WTF does this have to do w/ schools? Elder care? roads? Seriously. Wish I had the balls to answer the number of people in residence and return the form. Period. And why are bathrooms *excluded* as rooms?

    Really Not Something To Wonder About. Honestly, I don't think anyone's ever seriously had a crush on me. But who knows? Maybe I'm wrong. I'm probably right, though. :)
