Getting to know me

Kris sent me the "getting to know you email" that I have received in one version or another at least a dozen times before. I enjoy reading about my friends, but I never forward these on because I never forward emails to long lists of people. Especially emails that tell me to. Even if I think they might care. So Kris, although I can't bring myself to email this to a bunch of people, I enjoyed reading your answers, and here are mine if you are interested.
