We use em til they die. 4 TVs if you count the computer monitors with the tv tuners in them - picture-in-picture on your monitor while you work or surf.

    1. Clutch or Automatic - Automatic. Yes, I'm a girl, I know. My mom tried to teach me how to use a clutch back in high school and I got so frustrated that I just said "Forget it, I don't care, let's go home" and I've never taken the time to learn since.

    2. Cruise Control or no? - No, too much of a hassle because I just have to hit my breaks because of some idiot every 2 minutes anyway.

    3. Beer, or Wine, or nothing at all? - Beer. One of the first times I ever drank, my roommates and I got the boxed wine (Franzia I think it's called). I had no idea that you didn't drink wine the same way that you drink beer (aka as quickly as possible) so I just filled up a Gatorade bottle and drank it as quickly as I could. Let's just say it was a very rough night.

    4. Uses cell phone? - Duh, way too much like most people under 30-ish.

    5. Driver or Passenger? - If it's a short trip I don't care. Long trip, I'd obviously rather just sleep than have to concentrate on driving.

    6. Number of TVs in use at home. - 2

    7. Cable/Satellite TV or no? - Cable with Tivo/DVR. I don't know how I'd survive without having the ability to record my favorite shows and fast forward through the commercials.

    8. Plays golf? - Kinda the same deal as clutch/manual. I suck at golf and it's way too frustrating. Plus, it's 8 million degrees out here and expensive also, so I'd rather just find something to do in the comfort of my own air conditioning.

    9. Plays tennis? - I have, but I'd rather play racquetball for two reasons: a) don't have to chanse the balls everywhere, and b)way to hot out here

    10. Primary source of news: newspaper, TV, radio, internet, other? - Internet and TV, even though I never watch "the news" on TV or look for it on the internet.

    11. (For those who do) Reads newspaper most often on-line or in print? - n/a, I only ever touch a newspaper if I know someone who is going to be in it, or if I feel like dominating a crossword puzzle.

    12. Works Out with electronic device on head or without? - Wrestle without obviously. Usually lift without also.

    13. Watches Saturday morning cartoons (not because of kids). - Negative.

    14. Drinks Soda Pop? - More than I should. I can't eat pizza or Mexican food without getting a coke for some reason.

    15. Drinks Milk? - Not very often, but I like milk. The best milk ever - out of the bowl after eating cereal.

    16. Drinks Coffee or Tea? - Only raspberry tea. Never got into drinking coffee.

    17. Voted in any election in past year? - No. I know "very vote counts" but honestly, until an election is decided by one vote, I'm probably not going to bother.

    18. Prefers buying newest gadget first, at the same time as everyone else, or later if at all? - Later if at all. I don't get much into the hype that surrounds modern technology. For example, I just got an Ipod like a year ago and I haven't owned a video game system since Super Nintendo.

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.
