Don't lie...you like being asked about yourself. You also love learning nosy things about other people.
The obligatory Getting To Know Your Friends email (2010 version!) is making its way into inboxes everywhere. It popped into mine this week, and instead of replying all, I'm posting all!

14. Where would you like to retire to? Here. Pat Conroy would cook me shrimp & grits once a week and we'd trade stories of the yankee woes we endured during our years transplated from Dixie....
15. What was your most recent memorable birthday? Last year I turned 32, and to date, it's the only birthday where I struggled with getting older. So I gathered some girlfriends and had a Make-Over themed party that stretched across 4 cosmetics counters at Nordstrom.
Then we roamed the mall stealing sips of the champers from the mini bottles I included in everyone's favor bag...Even if I don't drag my frieds along, I'm going to try and make a make-over part of every birthday henceforth! Crows feet aside, I just think it's good for an aging spirit, and a really justifiable excuse for buying lip gloss.
16. What are you going to do when you finish this? Edit it for misspelled words.
17. When is your birthday? It's in March...but since you already know my middle name, if I tell you my birth date, you'll have a credit card taken out under my identity before you read #18....
