Getting to know you...


Monday Q of the Wk. Here’s how it works: Each Monday I ask a thought provoking question about life.  Pose the same question to your blog readers on your own blog along with your answer to the question.  Then come back here and post a comment with a link to your blog post so we can all read everyone’s answers!  It’s been a lot of fun getting to know my readers and their readers and so on and so on… This week’s question: How well do you know me?  If you've been a Communication FUNdameantals reader for any length of time, you have probably know that my life is pretty funny and that many of my humorous life experiences end up as blog fodder used for weekly giggle breaks by my readers.  I thought it'd be fun to see how well you know me after reading my blog and at the same time have you post so all of YOUR readers can get to know you as well.  It's the great "Getting to Know You" blog fest this week!  Let's begin! JoJo’s Questions: I'm going to ask a series of questions that can be answered by various posts on my blog.  I'll post the answers (and the hilarious links to where I shared my loony life stories with you here in a few days.  If you've already read them, I'm sure you'll giggle again for the first time and if you haven't read them before, you'll probably want to put your coffee down before you start! lol 1. What's the name of my old computer and why did I call it that? 2. What was the 9 foot cricket? 3. Who recommends Art of Eloquence studies? 4. What is the Dr. Seuss like poem Lucy and Ethel made up that became our theme song on Grace Talk Soup? 5. Name one of my favorite comedians. 6. What famous college prep book did I find with a BIG TYPO in it? 7. What's FIMMology 101? 8. What was the silly name my father came up with for my son? 9. What do I call my blog? 10.
