Yet Another Meme

I picked this up today from Christine, so thought I'd share it with you. If this is your kind of thing, I'd love to read your responses. I think it's amazing to have these internet friends, and yet there are big gaps of knowledge about all of you. 1. FIRST NAME? Charity 2. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? No. My parents named me Charity Dawn, which means Love Awakening, and was very significant to them while expecting my arrival. 3. LAST CRY? Can't remember, which is finally rare for me. After a year of baby blues, I'm getting to the point where I can even look at sappy commercials on TV without shedding a few tears! 4. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Eh... 5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Rosemary Ham 6. KIDS? 3 marvelous blessings! 7. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? I like to think so, but who knows! Would I be a nice other person? 8. DO YOU HAVE A JOURNAL? This is it! 9. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? Constantly. I'm not sure you always pick up on it, though, sarcasm in print can be tricky. 10. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Yes. 11. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? No. This is about the only "extreme" thing I don't want to do. Anything else, I'll at least try! 12. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Cocoa Puffs. I don't know if this is still the case, but when I was a kid, you couldn't get them in Canada. A friend from the States used to send a Christmas package every year, and always included a box. 13. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Never. 14. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? Used to be no, but the Hapkido is making me much stronger. 15. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR? Hard to choose, I like the ones with all the stuff in them, like Rocky Road. 16. SHOE SIZE? Used to be 7-1/2, now pretty firmly an 8. 17. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? The way I can't stop talking. It drives me crazy - inside, I know I'm talking too much, but I can't seem to make myself stop. 18. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? My mum, who lives in Winnipeg. 19. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO SEND THIS BACK TO YOU? I'd love to know more about all of you! 20. WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? Bare feet, denim capris. 21. LAST THING YOU ATE?
