I hate "get to know you" emails. They always come from people who know me. REALLY WELL. And they always have that one question...who do you think will answer this questionnaire. For whatever reason, my name is always an answer to that question despite the fact that I never answer those type of emails.
In general, I hate forwards too. I don't like the sweet stories, I don't like the info forwards, or the prayer chains that people think I want just because I go to daily Mass. People, I don't read them, and I break the prayer chains, so stop sending them to me. I think ALL political forwards are stupid and would never send them to someone else. For some reason people send those to me ALL the time too. And I have to read them just to see the stupid shit people come up with. I finally told a friend that it was insulting to my intelligence to even receive such crap. So, the first thing you know about me is that I'm a bitch who hates getting forwards.
Names you go by: Nicole, Nikki, Nik, Baby, Lance's wife and mom. Interesting tidbit, although my name is Nicole, most of my life, I've answered to Nikki. At various times, (college, law school, work) I would try and change to Nicole, but then someone would hear someone else call me Nikki and it was over. Then I met Lance, who has a sister with the same name, different spelling. There was no way he could get romantic calling me Nikki, so since we've been together I've been Nicole. And now that I have tons of people calling me Nicole, I love when I meet someone new and they immediately call me Nikki.
