Further proof of my insanity

As if any were needed. So, I get this e-mail from my friend Beth, and it has a collection of 40 or so questions and her answers. See, the idea is that everyone answers the questions and sends them out to the people they know, and thus we all learn about each other.

Well, what my friends learn about me is that I'm completely insane. You see, there are quite a few slightly different versions of the 40 or so questions list. I went out and tracked them all down and compiled a more complete list, and now it's nearly twice as long. THEN I went through and organized the questions by type. Why? Why do I do these things? One time for Japanese class, we had to give presentations one what we did on a typical day. I went last. Everyone else stood in front of the class and gave their presentation. I brought overheads for the projector. Full color pictures of me during various parts of the day. After class, one of my fellow students asked me why I went through the extra effort. I told her it was because of my low self esteem! HA! My problem isn't lack of self esteem, it's over abundance! I always feel that I can do any job better than other people.

Anyway, then I sat down and started answering the questions. My answers were much too long. No one wants to read a novel when they check their e-mail. Thankfully, there was a very brief power outage and my answers were lost, but unfortunately I had saved the questionnaire, to inflict upon unsuspecting visitors.

Anyway, here it is, the complete list of survey questions and my new answers:

Okay, here's what to do... and try not to be LAME and spoil the fun. Just give in. Copy (not forward) this entire e-mail and paste it onto a new e-mail that you will send. Change all of the answers so that they apply to you. Then, send this to a whole bunch of people you know *INCLUDING* the person who sent it to you. The theory is that you learn a lot of little known facts about your friends and family. It's fun and easy. **Remember to send it back to the person who sent it to you**
