You know the usual Favorite Reality Show...Probably The Biggest Loser Favorite actor/actress...Rachel McAdams and Johnny Depp If you were a super hero, what would your super power and name be? Gosh I am way to nerdy, because this question is the hardest for me to answer! I feel like I would become a super hero by accidentally tripping into a carton of chemical wastes. But what if I came out looking all crazy with no super powers? So not cool!! I mean what else are cartons of harmful chemical wastes for?! Anyway, I would have to say I would want similar super powers to Green Lantern, because on my days of from super hero business I could have my ring make a hammock and I could just be chilling. Best Power Ever. Favorite Movie... I'd have to go with The Sting or Monty Python and the Holy Grail (My dad and I watched this so many times throughout the years) also Ghostbusters If you could spend a day with any three people, alive or dead, who would they be?

Usually it happens on my way to class when nobody is around, or in certain hallways that tend to echo. It gets really bad when I have my headphones on and I can't hear a person walking past me. Their expressions are usually quite priceless. I think i'm getting better though, because I got a thumbs up from someone the other day ;) An artist that no one would believe I have on my ipod...Oh where to start!
