Welcome to the new 2007 version of getting to know your friends. Who writes this crap? 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 it to a bunch of people including the person who sent it
to you. The theory is that you will learn a lot of little things about your
friends, that you may not already know about them. Because you obviously don't have time to actually call or send a real email you are too busy answering forwarded surveys. Inquiring minds want to know what is your favorite color, ice cream, puppy? It definitely reminds me of conversations had with Kindergartners. Except with Matt there is more cursing (not more than some of my student's but a little more). In several instances I am lazy and just decided to agree with Kate.
1. What time did you get up this morning? alarm 5:30am reset for 6:30 I think but instead I reset the time. wake up at 6:30am and see the clock says 7:30am fling off the covers, leap out of bed, turn on the light blinding Michaela and curse about being late. Notice it is very dark. Run down the hall and into the kitchen...it is 6:35. sleep in until 6:45am
I am nothing if not lengthy.
