4) WHAT IS YOUR SECRET GUARANTEED WEEPING MOVIE?
Probably Titanic.  Why'd she throw it into the ocean?!

Nothing that hard work and dedication can't achieve.  I'm going to echo jon's answer.

I know a fabulous famous author!

Yes - it's somewhat hidden.

Yes - it's somewhat hidden, too.

I don't know how to drive stick.  Plus, it's hard to find a Benz with a stick in America.  (That totally sounded snobbish; but hey, if you got it, flaunt it.)

23) FAVORITE TRAIT OF THE OPPOSITE SEX
Personality - it's easier to flirt with people you have no sexual interest in.  I love strong, opinionated women with fun, flirty attitudes.

Most of the computer books I 'plan to read'.

Instant Ramen.

26) WOULD YOU EVER GO OUT DRESSED LIKE THE OPPOSITE SEX?

No.  I'm a closet crier.

Have conversations.  Seriously, what's this question about?

Three.

Instant ramen??? It's so salty and the noodles are always squishy, even the Japanese kind that comes in the bowl shaped container. They make them now with dried pork that you add to water, and I shudder at the thought of eating freeze dried pork. Can't your mom teach you some Cantonese recipes?

Wow... that list is freakishly similar to what my answers would be.
Except that I can cook things other than ramen noodles... and I hang out with girls 'cause they're more insecure than any guys I know :)

Favourite trait of the opposite sex - Personality. I like that, it's very original! I think I might follow in your footsteps and do one of those too.

Love the post! Love every single answer! We have the same taste music I see. LOVES IT! My fave? The Instant Ramen one ... I'm an expoert on that too huh! :) ROFL

I love the feeling of Cashmere too, but with Merino wool coming out, you can't tell which is which until you read the label.
