So now that I've shared with you, tell me some of your answers!


  1. While not a direct response, I must say this format of post totally reminds me of the MySpace days, when people regularly posted surveys like that to all their friends (who in turn shared theirs.) As annoying as MySpace was in general, I'm surprised to realize I do miss some of those aspects which never carried over to Facebook.

  2. I love the motto you chose. Whenever I'm asked that question my answer is, "Whatever you are, be a good one" - Abraham Lincoln.

    Lovely learning a little more about you!

  3. @Kurt - whoa! I totally forgot about that! You're right - it is similar. The 25 things list was really popular on facebook for a while, but there aren't nearly as many of these sorts of memes around.

    @Emily - Oh I love yours too! I think that's a good motto to live by!

  4. Haha I love that the figure you most identify with is Daria. That's awesome!

    Thanks again for linking up today! And thanks for the shoutout...I hope you had fun with the survey.


  5. I wish I was better at making friends as well, that would make life much easier.

  6. I always love these posts! It's so fun to see what people say versus how you personally would respond.

    I could do agree more about dying before the loss of cognitive function. I work with Alzheimer's patients and I would much rather do some sort of doctor-assisted suicide if legal than get that far. It's so terrible on the relatives, and it's no way to live.


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. Every comment brings a smile to my face!
