Admit It... You Love Surveys

I have a friend named John Mark who is obsessed with e-mail surveys. And I must say, though reluctantly, I think they are great fun as well. The afore-mentioned John Mark is always sure to deliver a fresh survey about midway through any type of break from school. Here is the latest from John Mark (the abridged version), complete with my responses:

1. WHAT COLOR PANTS ARE YOU WEARING? I'm wearing a skirt - brown wool.

2. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? Sufjan Stevens - Seven Swans. It is playing on my computer at work in the School of Theology right now. Someone told me it sounded weird.

4. DO YOU WISH ON STARS? no, I pray.

5. HOW IS THE WEATHER RIGHT NOW? drizzly

6. LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? Marcie called me from Savannah, and it was amazing to hear her voice.

7. DO YOU LIKE THE PERSON WHO SENT YOU THIS? Wow, John Mark. Are you seriously this desparate for compliments?

    Ooh, sorry Phatwood. No e-mail surveys for me, although it appears that I am addicted to blogging now, as stated in this open letter to you.

    Also, because of your URL, I have discovered that your name, spaced differently, is Laura be that Wood. Yeah, you be that wood.

    --travstar pays no attention to that man behind the curtain
