Where were you when 9/11 happened?
Not my clearest memories. Remembrances of staring at a TV screen – possibly in the morning – in shock, frantic calls to my folks in NJ to check on them. Mostly though, just horror. And wonderment that it happened.
What do you do when vending machines steal your money?
I stopped using vending machines ages ago. Except when I didn’t have a choice at work. Never really stole money. No guns or anything.

Showers or Bath?
Usually take a long shower. Baths stopped when I was like 8.

No. Though I have been forced to when young, in addition to being made to dress up like a girl. Talk of mental scarring 🙂 Or metrosexuality. 😛

My mom’s lap. Curling up with my sis. There was another on this list, but I think thats a pipe-dream for the rest of my life.

Are you impatient?
I can be, when smart people act stupid. Have no patience for stupidity at any time really.

Alternates between coffee and hot chocolate.

Anyone who knows me knows I can’t flirt. Anyone who knows what I look like, knows there’s no chance of my luring any thing, let alone anyone.
