getting to know your friends

Remember when the quiz called “getting to know your friends” was floating around on the internet a few years back? My friend Dana just posted her, I LOVE Quizzes entry on ChinDeep as a guest blogger a few days ago and it made me think about this little quiz that got it all started for me. The thing that I think is so cool about this and other online “surveys” is that they reacquainted me and my friends Chantelle and Sherida after years of not seeing them. And, like I’ve told Dana before, even though Jeff introduced us and she was his friend first…now she’s mine. Hee hee.  We all spent hours finding, reposting, and answering these questions. Some may say, “What a waste of time!” I beg to differ. Anything that brings me closer to my friends is a great investment of my time.

So, Dana the trendsetter has brought the friendship survey to a whole new level. Posting it on a blog. Genius. Kimber, one of my favorite blogging babes just posted hers at Chaos in Heels. Guess it’s my turn!
