To get to the point of this post, while browsing around at some communities this morning I somehow came across an Easter Basket community in which each person posts about themselves and then their friends or other members of the community can reply and post gifts to their "Easter Basket" [graphics, songs, etc.] in a comment. All the replys are invisible to everyone but the moderators until Easter and then all the gifts are unveiled. I don't know who of the people I knew on LJ still comes on and if so, who visits my journal but I really thought it was a cute idea and I wanted to make one, gifts or no. I'm a sucker for anything of this sort. So here is a copy of my entry or "basket" and a link to the community where the gifts can be posted. As I said in the reply, I mainly liked the survey aspect of the whole thing. Therefore, I answered just like one of the many frivilous but addictive surveys we all used to answer in forums and blogs as opposed to answering based on letting people know what to "give" me. Since it is sharing something about myself, I thought it best be posted to my blog. So here it is. And if someone is still out there subscribed to this, by all means feel free to follow the link and post a "gift" to my basket. Then make one yourself and let me know so I can be in on the fun!
