: 1. What is your name?
Jennifer
:
: 2. How old are you?
25
:
: 3. Are you sure?
reasonably
:
: 4. What is your earliest memory?
When I was very young, Return of the Jedi was playing at the cinema and my mother took us to see it. My brothers and I were rocking on the seats, standing with one foot on the front and one foot on the back and shifting our weight so it tilted back and forth, and I tilted too far back and got my foot stuck and I cried and cried and cried. I remember my mother holding me, outside, while I cried.
:
: 5. What is your favourite alcoholic drink?
I like a cosmopolitan. or a rum and coke. or a rum and rootbeer. or a margarita. or a vanilla stoli and vanilla coke. or ice wine. or just about anything sweet or tangy.
:
: 6. What is your favourite vegetable?
I like broccoli.
:
: 7. Do you remember your first day at school?
Vaguelly. I rode to school on the bus with my mother (the parents went to school with the kids). It was only a half day. We met my teacher, who I'd already met 'cause she taught my brothers. She had a arm cast on her arm 'cause she'd falled while putting up decorations.
:
: 8. What is the worst exam result you remember ever getting?
Uh, I don't remember. I do remember getting an essay back in a french class in college with no grade and a note to see my teacher 'cause she thought I'd plagerized. I had trouble breathing. Fortunately I save drafts so I was able to give her the early drafts and the drafts with my francaphone friend's corrections.
:
: 9. How tall are you?
This is a better "are you sure?" question. I think I'm 5'6".
:
: 10. Can you swim?
like a mermaid. A mermaid who can't breathe under water, mind.
:
: 11. Who is your favourite movie actress?
I don't know as I have one.
:
: 12. Who is your favouite sportswoman?
Keri Walsh, beach volleyball star, and a member of my brother's high school graduating class.
:
: 13. Who is your favourite comedienne?
I like Jeanine Garaf...however you spell her last name. You can probably guess from my inability to spell her name just how fanatical I am. I think she's currently too skinny, though. She's kinda stretched out and guant.
:
: 14. Who is your favourite female politician?
Do fictional ones count? I adore C. J. Cregg.
:
: 15. Who is your favourite female historical figure (been dead for at least 100 years)?
Uh...I should probably pick one, an American one, as part of my campaign to get a woman's face on the $1 bill.
:
: 16. Who is your favourite super-heroine?
I liked She-Ra when I was little. Did I mention that I make a -lousy- feminist?
:

Our very own Jade

My mommy and a pox on anyone who disagrees!
:
:
: 21. Do you agree with "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth"?
I believe in Karma, that bad things should happen to people who do bad things, and good things (like having your cell phone returned) should happen to people who do good things (like track down the owners of lost cell phones). I also believe that I don't know enough of anyone else's life to play judge or jury.
:
: 22. Do you agree with "Life does not forgive weakness"?
Yeppers. But God preserves Fools, so sometimes you get your butt handed to you on a platter and sometimes you get off scott-free.

Uh, no. Most assuredly not.

Most assuredly not.
:
: 27. Do you agree with "Crime is a product of social excess"?
No.
:
: 28. Do you agree with "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"?
Yes. 'Course the problem with practicing this, is that not everyone wants what you want. "do unto others as they wish done unto them, just as you wish they'd do unto you as you wish to be done unto" doesn't roll of the tongue as glibely."
:
: 29. Do you agree with "And mankind is naught but a single nation"?
yes?

Yeah, now it's anorexia and diet pills

Uh...I try not to remember stuff like this.
:
: 35. What is the worst sport you know of?
Uh...There are many in which I'd never participate (Fight Club style pugilism comes to mind) but I'm having trouble thinking of a sport I could point to and say, "that one! no one should ever be allowed to do that ever again!"

I'm not good with these kind of questions. I suck at pop-culture

this falls into that pop-culture sphere.
:
: 40. Who is the worst sports "star" you have ever seen?

I'd like to see Jesus, risen from the grave.
:
: 42. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?

:
: 45. If you could buy anything regardless of cost, what would you buy?
