I love those internet "get to know you" things

I hate hate HATE internet forwards and jokes. As soon as I see "fwd" in an email subject line, I delete it. Stupid virtual snowball fights, baby kisses, cats playing guitars, the phone will ring, this image will pop up nonsense. YUCK!

But as much as I hate that other stuff, I love those "get to know you" quizzes. I think it's a symptom of my vanity and a love of talking about myself to anyone who'll listen. Now don't get me wrong, I won't fill them out and forward them to my whole address book. I like to do unto others. But I will fill them out and keep them for myself or post them on other bulletin boards I visit. Now when I get them I can post them here. Here's the first one. Of many.
