OK — I do enjoy all those email thingies that ask you to answer and then forward it on to your friends. I never forward them — mainly b/c I’m afraid I would lose all my friends if I did that 🙂

This one I thought was a little silly, and a lot of fun. I’ll do it here and then you can decide if you want to waste some time this afternoon playing. If you do, you can cut and paste & email it to everyone you know or post your answers here — pssst: I won’t tell anyone 😉

**Welcome to the 2008 edition of getting to know your Friends. ***
