I'm a Follower Too

From SBR: Selectively Biased Rants

1. Reply with your name and I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.
3. I'll pick a flavor of jello to wrestle with you in.
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me (maybe/maybe not).
5. I'll tell you my first memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal.

ok, David, I will bite because it's Monday morning, I have a full day of two toddlers ahead of me, and I can't drink so I'll take any diversion I can get. Have at it.

5. This unfortunately must just be as one of the legion of people in Debi's class. My favorite of that period though is that one night, late, I was at your door in Donner and I heard you on the phone so I waited for you to be done and then I knocked and you screamed "WHAT" from inside. I almost ran away. I think you were tired.
