Heh. I love this. Ditto on loving to wear pajamas in public.

Abercrombie don’t make clothes for big Negros like myself

RPGs…I’m in the middle of Final Fantasy XII now

and once you figure out the self esteem thing…write a book so I can read it…

I wish I was more creative with the true/false part. You, Tim and Tiffany are starting the trend!

I love PJs. I think everyone needs some pjs in their life and to wear them out in public.

What’s up with the PJ thing. I did it once, everybody kept looking at my bulge. Hated It in an erotic kind of way.

How about these questions:
Have you ever been shot or shot at?
Have you ever gone 24 hours or longer without sleeping?
Are you fine with Dr’s sticking you with needles?
As a kid, did you ever catch bees, praying mantis, or grass hoppers?
Do you know how to pop a wheeley on your bike?
Have you ever been intimate with your boss?
