I was tagged by Amber Cox. I don't even know Amber Cox. I check her blog everyday (more than once) and am excited to one day meet her. Isn't it fun to know you have cyber friends?

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
Each player answers the questions about themselves.
At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
