These things are great fun if you have time to do them.

Welcome to the 2007 edition of getting to know your Friends.

What you are supposed to do is copy (not forward) this entire e-mail and paste it onto a new e-mail that you’ll send. Change all the answers so they apply to you, and then send this to your friends including the person who sent it to you.

  3. Are you serious? I can’t honestly think of anyone who would care about what I answered to those questions. And if someone actually did, that would be creepy. In the past, if I thought someone would actually sit still long enough to get to know details like this, it was only because they wanted to get into my pants. So, yeah but no thanks. The internet is so weird.

  4. I care about what Sass’ responses are. And I know plenty of people who like to read my responses. It’s all about people watching…cyber-watching, though. lol

    There are creepy people everywhere. And that’s why some of choose not to put our last names, etc. But I love these questionnaires.

    But not everyone has to, I guess.

  5. I like your answer to #57. Me too.

    And mourn not for lost brunch buddies, for I am now unofficially unemployed– it’s a long gory story, but suffice to say I have all sorts of free time for brunch.

  6. nat: oh no, it’s me too, i find that hilarious. but someone else pointed it out to me…

    recently someone made eggplant that i liked… but then i got a sweat across my brow and my cheekbones so i think i’m sensitive to it :) … god it was good.

    pirate: yeah, that’s about how i feel about them too :)

    good for ‘damm what to post’

    gabi: yeah well, i think they’re fun… :)

    nat: yeah it’s amazing what creepy is out there and i’m sure i say too much but i’m still harder to find than the average human so i figure that’s good enough.

    pv: in this case it even is.

    wow, what the fuck.


    shit i’m at the farm of course when i read this. shit… email!
