Getting To Know You

What is it about these chain emails that people get so addicted to? I am sure that I have received no less than 30 different types of "Get to know you" emails in which people pass along vital information about themselves, such as "diamonds or pearls" to their friends, who probably already know the answer anyway. "Well, thank God that I just learned that Timmy likes posies instead of tulips. I was highly misinformed and would have brought the wrong birthday bouquet for sure."
I kind of get the feeling sometimes that people often do not even read other's answers, it's simply a way for people to beat their own "score" if you will. "Last time, I was funny, but let's see if I can shock 'em too." It is sort of like those people who are in a conversation simply so they can hear themselves talk at some point and feel like they really zinged someone.
By now you will have noticed that I have now two "get to know you" entries that were sent to me. Just couldn't help myself. I had to fill them out. These posts are like email crack for people. I could be doing something totally important at work or lecturing students and as soon as I see one of these bad-boys I have to stop everything and think of my most embarrassing moment or what season really describes me.. .
Ridiculous, right?
But of course, you will probably see another "get to know me" blog. Maybe next time it will reveal what animal I would be in a former life or something.

Fellows, ya might want to sit this one out.
Ladies! You will all agree! Why do women's undergarments all have to be so complicated? As you know, I'm getting married. My bee-u-tee-ful wedding dress has a low back, hence, I need a brassiere to accommodate such. Well, guess what? I canNOT find one! I have been to every department store in my horribly ill-equipped town and everyone that I try on is a half inch too high. A half inch of misery that I can call my own. I won't lie. I am a little worried. Another stab at women's lib. Anyone have any ideas? At this point I am thinking about white duct tape.
