The Disappearing Questions

I was interstate with friends yesterday and was fully intending to get these questions done when I got home, but my flight back was delayed and didn't get in until nearly midnight.

Freya is a good name. It was a secret society at my college. They walked at night with candles and hoods. No one knew who was in it. Very cool.

I used to read Family Circle and Woman's Day, here every month. That stopped somewhere in the mid 70's. Australian Women's Weekly sounds very interesting.
