    ...prompted by the couple of "getting to know you" sort of threads we have floating around. :) I think they're a great idea, by the way!

    This is one of those email surveys you get from friends, but I thought this one would be nice to use here because it's shorter and therefore, not nearly as annoying as most of the others out there... LOL

    Soooo let's answer some Q's! :)
