“Don’t Let The Sun Catch You Cryin'” (Dr. John)

Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of “About Me” questionnaire-type chain messages on Facebook. The idea is to answer a series of “quirky” questions about yourself and then send them to as many friends as possible so they can read what you wrote, and also participate themselves.

Most of the time, I don’t care to check these posts out. Call me inconsiderate, but if I want to know what your first kiss was like, I will ask you.

ANYway. The other day my friend Avaryl sent me one of these chain letters. The concept was to put your iPod or music player on shuffle, and answer each question with the title of the song playing. For each new question, you were to push the ‘Next’ button to get the answer. Regardless of how ridiculous the answer was, you had to write it down.

So I did it. And I had a lot of fun. So much fun, that I’m doing it again, right now, HERE, on this website! I hope you enjoy how ridiculous this will be. (If you feel like playing along, leave your answers in the comments section- I’d love to read ’em!)
