Hey. This thing has zero comments, I'm bored out of my skull, and I'm an egomaniac. For all of these reasons and more, I'm going to hijack this subject and submit MY answers to this little questionnaire.

10 years ago:
-I was in 6th grade (I think. I suck at backwards math)

-I played with Pogs. Yeah I said it!

I just want to know what the bad news is.

Oh and I'd also like to mention that Derek's girlfriend is way hot.

4:57 PM

Blogger Sarah said...

Yes Derek's girlfriend is totally hot. I met her, and it's true.

1) you never told me about your band
2) I KNEW it was Aqua Teen! When I saw Scott's I was like-am I a moron? But really Scott's the moron.
3) I saw no mention of Dave and Buster's or stingrays eating broccoli in your comment.
4) I will stab you in the jaw.
