This is not a meme, but it is a questionnaire. I would really appreciate it if you listed your answers to as many as possible as a comment here or by emailing me, & please use the title of this post as your subject line if you email.. Yes you have probably seen it before if you follow me on livejournal, & if you are one of the wonderful people who have already taken part in this questionnaire, thank you & you don’t need to do it again. Unless you want to due to changing your collection or your viewpoint over the past several years.
You are more than welcome to comment anonymously, but please let me know some details about you – after all, this is for research & that’s a vital part! Please tell me where in the world you are. For example; South Australia, Minnesota, Ireland (Cities are great too). Your age would greatly help too, even if its just an age bracket & isn’t exact (5-12, 13-17, 18-21, 22-30, 31-50, etc). Also, please let me know if you are male or female
