Yeah, whatever. I'm in a horrible mood right now, so I shall not respond. I think I'l be all sugar pies again on the morrow, so I will respond in a better fashion then. Just post your responses, when you read what others have posted and try to post your own, it will become more fun...

Hey, no offense intended Alt. I'm just being a brat because I didn't want to answer all the questions. Proceed with your fun. I forget that sometimes people on Hatrack are in a bad mood, because I like it so much here that just logging on puts me in a good mood.
Feel better (moodwise, or whatever). I think you are cool.

"...a cheap, thoughtless, perfuntory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you're stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap, that you mindlessly wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while you get a peanut butter cup or an English toffee; but it's gone too fast and the taste is fleeting. In the end, you're left with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth shattering nuts. And if you're desperate enough to eat those, there's nothing left but an empty box of useless brown paper wrappers."
D - Dog's name Never had one. I have a bunny named Junior, tho.

H - Hometown I never know what to say here. Where (Tulsa, OK) I only lived for a small part of my life. Hometown to me seems to go with the idea of "where you grew up" and I'd put that more in line with Kingwood, TX than where I was born.
I - Instruments None. Zero. Zip.

M - Most embarrassing moment In middle school, I had a friend blabbing about some private stuff about me to girls (and when I say private, I mean private).
N - Nicknames My given name is Andrew. Most of my friends call me A.J. or Aje (pronounced almost like age). My family sometimes calls me Jake, based off my middle name (Jacob). It all works.
O - One wish I wish I could fast forward a little in my life. I'm at a frustrated and bored point in my life, and I just want to move on to the next part.
P - Phobias Heights, whatever the technical term is for that. It's one of the reasons I don't like rollercoasters. The heights bother me quite a bit.
Q - Quote Homer: Oh sure. Even communism works. In theory.

V - Vegetables you dislike All except carrots.
W - Worst habit Probably biting my nails when I get nervous.
X - X rays I've had typical dental x-rays, and I also had an x-ray on my back. I injured my spine in middle school. Not too fun.

L - Longest car ride ever WA to UT 16 hours -- Holds true for me too, how convinient.
M - Most embarrassing moment Can't think of a most embarassing, so I'll say my most recent. There was a Hurricane Victims fundraiser going on during lunch at my school, there's a small stage there, so the student presidents held a little thingy where you would nominate your friends for a dollar to dance, it would take two dollars to not have to do it.
... I don't carry money with me. Need I say more?
