Get to know your friends

Flo posted this on her blog with an open invitation to answer the questions. I’ve got so many nebulous thoughts and unanswered questions percolating in my brain right now that an irresistibly fun questionnaire hit the spot. (I’ll share more about said thoughts and questions in an upcoming post — I’ll have more time (theoretically) after this week since it’s my last week of work!)

I invite anyone to copy/paste/answer it in the comments section here or on their own blog…
