Me me me

The following are some questions that I received in an e-mail from a friend. Not being one to send chain e-mail, I decided to cut and paste into my blog instead. Probably TMI, but here you go.

Welcome to the 2008 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 your friends including the person who sent it to you. 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?
10ish. Sundays are sweet like that.

Silver.

Probably something on TV. Oh yeah, we saw "Miracle".
