getting to know me...

My friend Nina sent this to me. I think this is better than any other of the pass-it-on emails you get. It's like the first interactive email I've ever seen, and you don't have to say anything you don't want to do; you don't have to reveal anything embarrassing; and you don't have to even do it. There are no threats of "You're going to hell, if you don't do this!" or "Bad luck will come in three days if you don't send it to 5 people and good luck will happen if you send it in three minutes!" Besides, it's a way to let people you already know get to know you better and others that you don't know well to get to know you. Go ahead. Try it!

Welcome to the 2006 edition of getting to know your friends. 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.
