PJ (#6)
Lila DiPasqua (#11)
Christina Dodd (#7)

    Oh, I'm terrible at guessing ages. Terrible! I hate when people ask me to guess their age. Even worse, I hate when they guess mine. Unless, of course, they miss it on the young side. Then they're my new best friend! :)

  26. Jane, you got at least two right! :)
