Things in my head and now …. not

About Me Questionnaire

Have you ever received these in your email?  The questionnaires that you fill out and then email to your friends to answer the questions too and email you back so you can learn something about them?  I LOVE THEM!  I don’t know why, but I can’t resist filling out all the questions and sending it on to see what comes back. 

So, I just received one this week but every time I tried to fill out the qeustiones I would get a computer error and my computer would shut down.  Seriously!  So… I thought I would put one on my blog.  : )
