Polar Bears - especially now, as they may not exist in the wild soon.

What word do you love to say just because of the way it sounds?

I probably would if the opportunity presented itself.

Have you seen or heard anything weird today?

Not really. I haven't done much today.

If it's in front of a classroom of kids, no. If it's in front of adults, yes. When I was younger the thought terrified me, but grad school rid me of most of the fear. A majority of our work consisted of presentations and speeches, so you get over your fear eventually.

How is the weather today?

It was beautiful, but I was stuck inside all day so I missed the good weather. Pah.

Do you like to be fully prepared for tests, or do you get a perverse kick out of winging it? (I've got a statistics exam tomorrow, and the idea of going in knowing everything is just plain boring, which is why I spent my evening watching soaps and taking a nap.)

Even when I studied, I never felt fully ready, so most tests felt like winging it anyway. I am a freak about preparation, though.

Nobody's been reading, save maybe she-dog, but she hasn't posted for a while.

Where is the strangest place you have found a Stephen Fry reading book?

Hmm - I'm not sure I get the question - strangest place to have found a book or read a book?

I don't think I can think of any particularly strange places to find books - seems to me they're all over so unless you were on a desert island or the moon, you'd kind of expect to find books wherever you are. Strangest place to read? I'm trying to think but again, nothing seems all that strange.

I'm not sure if I should feel worse for having no truly strange experiences or for thinking no place on earth I've been or read in is particularly strange.

Do you get cranky at any one time of day?

Mornings I'm particular cranky. And whenever I'm tired. I don't like to have my sleep interrupted.

As for reading over at the Stephen Fry thread, I'm not, so I have nothing to contribute.

Is there any celebrity book you would really like to read?

Oh.. gosh, Jason Isaacs comes to mind. He could even wear the blonde wig, I wouldn't care. (Why don't we have a drooling icon any more? I think I need one.)

What celebrity would you most like to smack?

Paris Hilton. Maybe not smack so much as hang upside down in a vat of nail polish remover.

Does this picture have the same violent biological effect on you that it does on me?

An artificial cricket. I loathe it. But then who doesn't?

Do you name any of your appliances?

I named my old computer Herbert, which is odd because my friend coincidentally named her stomach the exact same thing, and I think I know someone else with an inanimate object/body part named Herbert as well. It's obviously popular. My car's name is Betsy.

7:15. But I usually wake up a minute or two early and turn off my alarm before it sounds. It's detestable!

Lol, Emmmma, we were complaining about bras on the "Are they doing this where you live?" thread. I think it's on the next page on this board. They have to be the most difficult thing in the world to buy. The only place I find any luck is actually Target. I find better sizing there than even Macys or other department stores. It's just a pain all around.

What do you hate to shop for the most?

Believe it or not - groceries. Even bathing suit shopping has some element of humor in it but grocery shopping is sheer drudgery.

What household "chore" do you actually enjoy?

Hmm... Lego maybe? Or, I hate to admit it, Barbie. I had so many. I even had the Barbie Dreamhouse, and I realllly wanted the pink Barbie convertible.

The world. Even clothes bring me out in a rash, so I'm permanently on antihistamines.

Goofiness. I just couldn't be involved with someone who was a very serious person. I never realized how straight-laced people are until I got older. Someone told me that my whole family "isn't wired right". I'd rather be a little oddball than a prude. I think too many people underestimate the attraction of humor.

Did you ever sneak out of the house from your parents when you were younger?

Are we talking about real reading or Stephen Fry reading? If it's real reading, teen books. I know I'm only 19 and can still get away with it, but I can't help but feel a little immature when I go to the "Young Adults" section of the bookstore to pick up a book that I can read in two hours.

Do you look your age?
