A Friday Meme

(Image borrowed from jaegamer over at LiveJournal. The meme sheep idea comes from my writing friend JunoMagic.)

This meme comes courtesy of my sister-in-law via email. I may not be entirely serious as I answer these questions, however ...

I won't bother editing the beginning paragraph to adapt this to a blog setting. Lift the contents from this blog if you care to answer ...

Welcome to the 2008 edition of getting to know your friends! Okay, here's what you're supposed to do, and try not to spoil the fun! Copy this entire email and paste into a new email that you can send, change all the answers so that they apply to you. Then send this to a whole bunch of people you know, INCLUDING the person that sent it to you. Some of you may get this several times (it means you belong to a tight group of friends).
