TV Show: M*A*S*H
Book: Nightwatch
Poem: Bear In There by Shel Silverstein

There's a Polar Bear
In our Frigidaire--
He likes it 'cause it's cold in there.
With his seat in the meat
And his face in the fish
And his big hairy paws
In the buttery dish,
He's nibbling the noodles,
He's munching the rice,
He's slurping the soda,
He's licking the ice.
And he lets out a roar
If you open the door.
And it gives me a scare
To know he's in there--
That Polary Bear
In our Fridgitydaire.

Band: Tie between The National and Arcade Fire
School Subject:Drama, followed closely by Law and History
Game: Diplomacy
Animal: Racoons. Those crazy bastards are awesome
Colour: Purple, of course.
Vacation Destination: I can't decide that. Malaysia and Thailand are awesome. I also love what I've seen of England and Scotland, and France.

Very Happy
