My Meme

I'm considering myself "tagged" by Nancy Knits. She made a list on her blog, answering questions for a "meme". I'd never heard of a meme before, so I read her link to a site that explains it. I still don't completely understand it, but I'm going to answer the same questions she answered. (tee-hee)
