all the cool kids are doing it

The Question Meme

1. What is your first name? I was supposed to be named Erika, but when I was born, my dad took one look at me and said I didn't look like an Erika. My mom was a bit distraught because they had settled on that name months ago, and asked what they would name me then, and he pulled my name out of nowhere. I'll give you a hint, it is *pretty* unusual, at least in this country. And you know its not Erika.

I should have been like you and insisted that Fall be allowed as my favorite season. And again, I still so adore your new format. Makes me think of cider and doughnuts.
