Non-bookish meme stuff

Jill tagged me for the Sevens meme back before Christmas and while I intended to answer, my tendency to procrastinate got the better of me. Seven of anything is an exhausting amount!

Then Carol tagged me with an email meme yesterday. I decided to answer Carol's meme on the blog, in deference to the meme I didn't do for Jill.
