"Getting to know you"

Yes, yes I am sorry, this must have been posted about a million times on Interference, but heh once more won't do any harm.

Can we start another "Getting to know you thread?" Because I don't know anything about anyone really on these forums except Mad1 she lives beside me

If you wanna know anything about me, jsut ask a question and I shall answer for you.

And if you look, you look through me.

Good idea - but there's a million things to know about a person.

Better to think of a list of questions for each of us to answer - this way it will be more guided - "getting to know you" is a multi-page event for each person.

I'd be glad to answer a series of 20 short questions.

------------------
No alarms and no surprises, please.
