Getting to know me... 2010 edition

This was sent to me, via email, by my lovely friend.  I met Julie through an online forum about 5 years ago, and was lucky enough to meet her during a layover in Calgary while en route to Saskatchewan.

I know what you're thinking... What?  You flew to Calgary on the way home from Saskatchewan??

WestJet, for some reason, backtracks to Alberta and then crosses OVER Saskatchewan when flying from Saskatoon to London!

And they wonder why flights are so expensive...

Anyhoo.... Julie drove into Calgary and met me for lunch at the airport during my two hour layover.  We got on famously, and talked the whole time... in fact, I was almost late for my connecting flight! :)  I'm hoping to meet up again the next time I fly into Calgary!

In the meantime, she sent me this little Getting to Know You quiz - 2010 Edition.  I normally don't partake in mass emails, but this one looked fun, and good for a little procrastination!
