Getting to know you, I mean me

Welcome to the 2006 edition of getting to know your friends and family better. What you are supposed to do is copy (not forward) this entire email and paste it into a new one. 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 idea is that you will learn a lot of little things about your friends and family that you probably didn't know.
(Obviously I've chosen not to do this as an e-mail, but...)

It's absolutely remarkable how many answers you shared with she who sent it to me!

"I don't drive anymore"

What happened to your beater?

"ummm God!" & "hmmmm it won't be God"

Good answers!

"This morning" & "My health"
:-(

"Danggggg that was long."

Yes, which is why I wasn't going to tag anyone or send it to anyone. But, thank you for doing it!
:-)

Very cool, thanks for sharing all that. These kind of quiz thingies are like a big bowl of ice cream. I know I shouldn't, but can't resist.

Miguel drives the beater Ford Tempo thingy but I can't drive anymore so, I was trying to answer honestly. Yes, it sucks not being able to drive. First I wasn't allowed to drive at night because my night vision is very bad. I could handle that.

Once we move I'll at least have public transportation if I want to go somewhere without having to have someone drive me. However, the few times I have taken a cab it's been pretty darn nice. Last driver was a guy I went to high school with who not only waited for me to get done at the store but carried my groceries upstairs for me.

I could get used to that kind of personal service.

:-)

R_V,

I like 'em too. I think they make people on the Net just a little more tangible. Sure, somebody could BS their way through it, but why? The time/impact ratio is atrocious!

Lisa,
Where are you moving to that's going to have more public transportation than T?
