Okay, back in the early days of email--I mean within the last five-six years--remember those email surveys everyone and their dog would forward? Kind of an all about you type of thing? Where you'd put your name and your favorite color and if you ever had sexual dreams about Einstein, whatever. If you still have one or two, could you email it to me at jenn at thegateway.net? Or hell, just hit reply and paste it into comments, that'll work.

Thanks in advance!

I have a friend who *still* sends those out. Here's one:

Welcome to the winter 2005 edition of getting to know your friends. What you are supposed to do is copy (not forward) this entire e-mail, and then paste it onto a new e-mail that you will send. Change all the answers so they apply to you, and then send this to the people you care about, including the person who sent it to you. The theory is that you will learn many little things about your friends, if you did not know them already.

1. What time did you get up this morning?

2. Diamonds or pearls?

3. What was the last film you saw at the movies?

4. What is your favorite TV show?

5. What did you have for breakfast?

6. What is your middle name?

7. What is your favorite cuisine?

8. What foods do you dislike?

9. What is your favorite potato chip flavor?

10. What is your favorite CD at the moment?

11. What type of car do you drive?

12. Favorite sandwich?

13. What characteristic do you despise?

14. Favorite item of clothing?

15. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation?

16. What color is your bathroom?

17. Favorite brand of clothing?

18. Where would you retire to?

19. Favorite time of the day?

20. What was your most memorable moment?

21. Where were you born?

22. Favorite sport to watch?

23. Who do you least expect to send this back to you?

24. Person you expect to send it back first?

25. What fabric detergent do you use?

26. Coke or Pepsi?

27. Are you a morning person or a night owl?

28. What is your shoe size?

29. Do you have any pets?

30. Any new and exciting news you would like to share with family & friends?

31. What did you want to be when you were little?

*hugs* thanks, sweetie!

I'm gonna skip the using arm flailing and move right to measuring you for a straight jacket. Don't worry it'll have a nifty wristband thingy and a pretend thigh holster.

It can be monogrammed too! Would you like your last name to be unofficially changed to Sheppard?

And will you *please* go to your old email and find me one? Please? I'll tell you why tonight. Just--get it and paste or email. An *intersting* one. Go. Now.

I don't think I have one or I would have done it already. I got woken up from a sound nap to solve a computer problem and now my body insists I try and finish it. I'll check when I have more brain cells. But I'm pretty sure I don't. Sowee!

I think you might be fairly familiar with this one. Or you were at some point. =P

*snickers* Oh you are *funny*. *g*

I want to sort of do a new one, so I was thinking I'd try to find another survey with new questions. Though it occurs to me that I could just write my own at this point. Hmm.

Hehe. I thought of it immediately when you said, "sexual dreams about Einstein."

*eyes suspiciously re: your motives*

Remember, you asked for this:

Welcome to the next edition of "Getting to Know Your Friends". Okay, here's what you're supposed to do...and try not to be lame and spoil the fun! Just give in.

Then, send this to a whole bunch of people you know *INCLUDING* the person that sent it to you. The theory is that you will learn a lot of little known facts about your friends. It is easy and fun.
