get to know me

Got this email from a friend and thought I’d post my replies. Enjoy!

Yes, it’s that time again! Welcome
to the 2006 edition of getting to know
your friends and family. 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 this to a whole
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, if you did not know
them already. Here is how I
answered…..

1. What time did you get up this morning?
10am – but
that’s because Emma woke up at 4am and was up and down until 6am, when John took

off until 10am because I was so exhausted.
