Double Duty Post

According to my sitemeter, I get an average of 43 hits per day on my blog, yet I seem to get comments from the same handful of about 8 people (Thank you to the commenters... I love getting the feedback and making the blog entries more like a conversation than an article!). So... either those same 8 or so people are checking my blog 5+ times a day or there are lots of lurkers on my blog (I'd feel pretty safe betting on the latter). So... to both my commenters and my lurkers, please leave a comment (you are able to comment without an account, but please leave your name if you do) answering the following short survey about me. :) I'm interested to see what people think about me. Try to answer the questions before looking at other's answers. And if you absolutely will not answer the questions because it goes against your belief system or you're so busy that you just can't take the 2 minutes to answer the questions, then please just leave a comment saying that you're a lurker so that I know who you are.

So... without further ado, here's the survey:

1. Where did we meet?
2. Take a stab at my middle name.
3. What is my favorite color?
4. Color of my eyes?
5. Do I have any siblings?
6. What's one of my favorite things to do?
7. What's my favorite type of music?
8. What sport do I like to watch?
9. What is my favorite drink?
10. Do I have any special talents?
11. What am I most adamant about?
12. How many children do I have?
13. Your thought or memory when hearing my name.
14. If you and I were stranded on a desert island, what is one thing that I would bring?
