Here are my answers:
1. What brought you to DS in the first place? What keeps you coming back?
I wanted answers about cloth diapers, selling CDs, and buying CDs, of course! I come back because I love the chats and community. Hearing about other people's lives is fun.

2. What is your favorite CD?
I have yet to find the perfect cloth diaper, but we love our BGEs even though they are ripped to shreds now. (I would LOVE to try the new ones, but DD is potty training herself and refuses to wear CDs anymore! ) Oh, I love our NB Piddle Poddles AI2s as well!

3. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Plum

4. What's one super awesome/funny/interesting/unique thing about you?
Outside of this board, I would tell other people that we use CDs as my unique thing...but I guess that's not so original here! Here's something: I'm working on getting my PhD in German linguistics. Fun!

5. What is your favorite season?
In order from best to worst: fall, spring, winter, summer. I just hate being hot, it makes me cranky. I also like drier weather (fall is dry where I am originally from) and love snow.

Re: 2,013 Items in 2013!

We did a large clean-out of part of our bedroom last night and got rid of 1 whole garbage bag of trash, 1 garbage bag of stuff to donate, and 1 garbage bag of stuff to recycle, plus about 6 boxes that need to be broken down.

Got rid of:
3 Easter items
10 magazines
boxes
8 paperback books
lotion samples
random crayons
broken pens
scarf
1 chair cushion
1 dog Halloween costume
2 Similac diaper bags
9 baby clothes
1 pair shoes
and a whole whole bunch of other random stuff I can't even remember!

There's still more to do, but I think we got rid of about 120 items last night! Hooray!

Total for 4/4: 120
Grand running total: 940!

I was able to as a kid, but then lost the ability. Now 2 years into weekly yoga I can do the slits again (but only on one side and really warmed up)

Re: 2,013 Items in 2013!

1. What brought you to DS in the first place? What keeps you coming back?
I was a cloth diaper newbie and I didn't know anyone who used them or even heard of anyone who did. I had no idea there is an entire community of people who cloth diaper and thought I had to make all of my own diapers. I googled cloth diapering and spent many hours reading, and I wandered onto DS. I keep coming back for all the "off-topic" discussions. I can't look at Diaper Chat or the FSOT because it makes me spend money.

2. What is your favorite CD?
I love my GMD oranges. I stuff them in my 4.0 seconds. Even though we have a bazillion dozen prefolds in the different sizes, I don't need any additional absorption yet, unless it's an overnight.

3. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Aquamarine

4. What's one super awesome/funny/interesting/unique thing about you?
I was born in China and my mom CD'd me in strips of rags and had to hand wash and line dry (everybody did).

5. What is your favorite season?
Oh boy. There's a particular week in Spring in the South that is lovely beyond belief. I think it is mid-May? Mild, fragrant, pleasantly rainy sometimes, just wonderful. I have lived in New Hampshire for a year, and I'm over the long winters already.

Oooh, I love aquamarine as well.

So what did your mom think about you using cloth diapers yourself? My mom used cloth on me too, but not with rags and hand washing! That takes it to a whole new level
