What do you Remember most about your Friends?

i mean, the one which comes to your mind, which is unique to people you know. i don't mean mushy high-value stuff, e.g., integrity or the capacity to hold conversation. it goes a little like this by naming some of my friends and stand-out 'things' about them: 

alvin - he once told me how he wished i was his sister
janty - her beautiful long hands, like a pianist's
cora - fears spiders
angeline - read david copperfield over and over
jopen - very good at scrabble
rodonna - rubs lotion on her face every night
cora - likes liver steak
stephii - can't stand crime novels
elaine - loves unique earrings
bicbic - does her own pedicure
liza -  doesn't curse at all
dinah - ate her baon in highschool with a spoork (spoon-fork)
mabel - cries when she can't get her braids right
bolly - wanted to study foreign service at lyceum u
helene - dreads the dark and sleeping by herself
roxanne - a priceline fanatic!
cheng - finished a personality dev course at cora dolorosa
