    They're all interesting places, but I doubt that any are haunted.

    When you go into the country around where you live and see wild flowers, how many can you name (excluding grasses :lol:)

    All of them
    Some of them
    One or two
    None, not even the purple ones :(

    That's why I said:

    Middle East, though they're all rather wide-ranging areas ;)

    Of those you've never studied, which subject(s) would you most like to study?

    Engineering. Mainly so I can build robots to do my bidding.

    Your laugh is...
    loud and boisterous
    witchy and cackling
    mousey and squeaking
    quiet and hissy

    Rather giggly and juvenile, occasionally switching to loud and boisterous mode.

    And you?

    I predikt Kim. :COP: I would prefer Carolina or Mao. Akiko would be shocking . Ashley a sign of a very dismal competition. Lipniskaya winning would officially kill my interest in the sport. :blah:

    Most important part of skating:
    audience connection/performance/showmanship :oksana1:
    body line and positioning :sasha1:
    edges and flow :shizuka1:
    technical jumps and spins :irina1:

    The Macarena, if only because it made a presidential candidate (Al Gore) look even more of an idiot than he already was.

    New VX safety video?

    Cool
    Will grate fast if you're a frequent flier
    Not worth flying VX because effective $ spending threshold to achieve VX Elevate Silver is more than the equivalent 2014 PQS threshold on UA or other carriers

    There's things I don't really share. The fact that I smoke, drink, and flirt with boys for example are not known to, say, my parents. "Skeletons" seems to suggest repression though and I am not a particularly repressed person...

    Do you know how to play Poker?
    yes
    no

    No. Card games aren't my thing.

    Olympic bronze medallists' freeskates since 1992 (the performances on the night, not just the skater you liked best ;))

    1992 - Nancy Kerrigan
    1994 - Chen Lu
    1998 - Chen Lu
    2002 - Michelle Kwan
    2006 - Irina Slutskaya
    2010 - Joannie Rochette

    Easy. Chen Lu's Butterfly Lovers was legendary. (Funny how I happily ignore the UR jumps :p) I'd put Joannie in 2nd and Chen 94' in 3rd. The rest of them were crap.

    Same question, with silver:

    Midori Ito -- Albertville
    Nancy Kerrigan -- Lilehammer
    Michelle Kwan -- Nagano
    Irina Slutskaya -- SLC
    Sasha Cohen -- Torino
    Mao Asada -- Vancouver

    Favorite UMBS lines to use in torpedoing someone icky coming on to you?

    "What's the deal with your Asian fetish? You like 'em meek, submissive, love-me-long-time? Oh, wait, you're looking for a wife."
    "Why, thanks for the compliment, but you're a lawyer, why would I want to work for you? Lawyers are always somebody else's b**ches."
    "Oh, that explains it, you're from LA originally, no wonder you like the Marina [superficial douchebag neighborhood of SF] so much."
    "Wow, that's interesting, but hold on one sec, I just gotta go to the bathroom."
