Getting to Know Me

Welcome to the 2008 edition of getting to know your friends!  I've gotten these a gazillion times as e-mail, but I always enjoy doing them.  I saw this particular one over at Alison Wonderland & decided I'd play along.  

What you are supposed to do is copy this entire post and paste it in a post that you'll write. Change all the answers so they apply to you, and then let me know that you've played along. The theory is that you will learn a lot of little things about your friends that you might not have known!

  1. What time did you get up this morning?  Woke up about 8:30 & got up around 9:00.
  2. (what happened to #2?)
