Perhaps it's a girl thing, but I want to make it a little more fun around here. It seems you all are in a rut, and since CosmoNut informed me this is the "slow season" here, I wanted to make a fun thread.



I'll make a questionnaire!

Tell me and the others about yourself. Nothing too personal. Just fill out the form. I'll answer first.

    A little clarification for you guys:



    TWiT and Your Mac Life are online radio shows that cater to the interests of the Mac community. TWiT stands for This Week in Tech.

    Marvin, sounds like someone needs some counseling... and not because of the food fetish.



    If a man were to eat food off me, I'd prefer it to be ice cream and M & M's. Or.. dare I say it.. applesauce. I'm much too naughty.

    Applesauce? Wow, that's creative. Bit messy I imagine.

    But the real question is "With or without cinnamon?"
