would you like to take a survey?

For some reason I've fallen prey to doing a few random surveys on Facebook, something I said I'd never do. ;) Since I haven't had time (new job promotion!), energy (new baby on the way!) or inspiration (no excuse!)I have been neglecting my poor, sad lil bloggie. So I figured I may as well cut-and-paste the surveys that I do take over here... y'know, for fun.

(anyone remember the nasal voice in some commercial or song or something from the mid-90's that said over and over "would you like to take a survey?" No? Maybe it's my imagination.)

So, let the survey-taking commence! The items with an "X" next to them are the ones I have personally done. My extraneous comments are in italics.
