OK, first of all, Miss TM looks so cool in glasses, she should wear them all the time!!
Second, really? a crane will fall you?. I have to say this was a kick to do. Some of the questions were hard to figure out (well, obviously because we don't know you) but just in general. You did a good job coming up with interesting questions that gave us some insight into your life. I may have to steal your idea.....

I agree 100% with Annette, what a great fun post. Thank you for sharing!!!
I think I got ONE right. :-)

Tell TM she is styling and profiling in those specs.

And, keep celebrating that birthday!!
