That was fun to read! But I must disagree with exercising one's civic duty - f**k jury duty! I hate it! : )

Eat at a French Laundry?? Weirdo

My list:
One semantic suggestion to give consistency to Tracy's "8 things that attract me to my best friends" list so all the qualities are nouns:

"Loquaciousness" rather than "Talkative"
