Bill Gates - I need the money that man has.
What color do you think looks best on you?
Brown, black. Maybe. I don't know.
Have you ever swallowed a non-food item?
Bugs (on motorcycles and in the back of pickups), and I'm sure other things that I can't think of right now.
Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100?
Only if I get to pick the person.

I swiped this from Jen Hendren's blog...
The Big Read, an initiative by the National Endowment for the Arts, has estimated that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed. How do you do?
1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE. (I don't see an underline option in Blogger - these are CAPITALIZED)
