sweet november

1. Are you good at keeping in touch with old friends?

2. What is your preferred method of communication: Email, phone, one on one visit?

3. At a party, do you prefer one on one conversation, or a group conversation?

4. Are you a fan of dinner parties? Would you prefer to attend or host?

5. How many hours a day do you spend on the phone? How many of those hours are for work?

1. I'm not good at it, but I'm working at getting better. I only have a few old friends anyway.

2. I'm at the PC all day, and sometimes I type faster than I talk - so email for me. Of course, nothing beats being in person.

3. Depends if I know a lot of people or not. If I do - then group talk - if not, then I'll usually talk one-on-one with someone. I'm pretty extroverted, so I'm not bothered by being at parties where I know nobody!

4. I'm a BIG fan of dinner parties - we joined a supper club as soon as we moved to Sacramento. I prefer to attend rather than host - less cleanup!

5. I probably spend 4-6 hours a day on the phone - all for work. On weekends I might spend an hour max on the phone talking to friends and family.

HAHA! I did it, I posted a comment! Weeeeeee

1) I'm terrible at keeping in touch. I just sorta move on and never look back.

2) I prefer to hold even my most intimate conversations with signal flags.

3) At a party, I like for at least 3 different people to talk to me, all at the same time, all about unrelated subjects, while responding to all inanities with just one word, usually "booger".

4) I love to host dinner parties. If someone gets on my nerves, I simply tell them I have to check the olives and walk away. Great get-away trick. Everyone knows how sneaky olives can be.

5) I hate the telephone. I usually spend roughly 20 minutes on it a day, all work related. If I need to contact someone after work, it's strictly smoke signals for me.

1) not really. if we grew apart, its usually for a reason.

2) in person or phone. i prefer the personal aspect of it, not the dehumanized aspect.

3) it depends on the party, but usually i prefer one on one since the feedback is immediate and direct.

4) i hate dinner parties. id stab myself in the eye with a dinner fork before i would host one. attending is ok, as long as it isnt roast duck and carrots on grandmas china at her ancient table sitting under a chandelier.

5) i hate talking on the phone, end of story.

1. The trick is to get a well trained donkey, and then things usually go a lot smoother.

2. Usually two to nine times a week, depending on how fresh the batteries are.

3. It's really more a question of how you grip it rather than how much honey you put on it, in my opinion.

4. I don't think there is a "wrong way" per se, but certainly if you break an ankle you should reconsider your strap placement.

5. That's just who she is, isn't it? I mean, you must have known that when you paid for all the equipment? What did you think was going to happen?

1. well, that depends. Some old friends we see and hear from regularly - I have friends in the mystery field for over 25 years.

But there are others who fall by the wayside for one reason or another.

2. e-mail or visits more than phone calls

3. group conversation

4. we used to give a lot of dinner parties. Hosting is more hectic but I prefer it. And I don't even mind the cleanup too much.

5. Hours on the phone? As few as possible. In the average day, no more than a few minutes, unless I get a call from my sister or mother.

1. Not at all.

2. Visit!

3. One-on-one!

4. I don't know that I've ever attended a dinner party. But I think I would like to be the boss.

5. Four minutes per day, and 45 seconds of that might be for work.

if they are worthy of keeping in touch - i only keep in touch w/ one of my high school friends...

i email A LOT and i love the visits (if i can make the time to see the people)

depends on the party and how stinky the person's breath is! haha!

i love to entertain - so i love to throw the dinner parties. i am not a big fan of going to them though cause i always think in my head how i would do things A LOT differently.

i try NOT to speak on the phone - don't really like to since i had a customer service position and was on the phone for 8 hours a day! YUCK!

group, though i mostly listen and nod
dinner parties are ok (free food, I don't have to cook). i prefer to attend.
less then 1 hour. 50% of that for work.

1. No, I suck at this.

2. one-on-one visit

3. no preference.

4. Yes, and attend, because I get all insecure and inadequate when I host.

5. As few as possible, and almost all of them. I'm not a phone person.
