Off-Topic: Getting to know you …

I'm seeing lots of new "faces" around … and I'm so glad of it! I'm hoping that new folks and folks who've been around for awhile will join in and introduce themselves and play a silly little game. It's a variation of one of those ice-breaker/getting to know you things you see on the internet or at work or school …

So, hmm … here's my suggestion: I'm going to share my answers to the following questions and tag someone or a couple of someones. And then those folks (hopefully) will answer with their answers (you can copy and paste) and tag a someone or a couple of someones … which will then keep going.
