3. James
You know, I'm surprised that there aren't a billion Jameses (*sounds like Gollum*) in the world, since everyone seems to say that they'd name their child that. I, however, only know one James, which sucks 'cause it's a really great name!

2. That I always say the wrong thing to boys I fancy
You're totally not alone in that. I don't think I've ever said a coherant sentence to a guy I've liked...

James and Jamie are nice, but come to think of it I should have put down Linus - I love that too!

OH YUP. I either snap at them like I have a terminal case of PMS or say something that only makes sense to daisies. AWFULNESS.

3. Er, good in bed? (I can sleep for days, myself)

. . . xD! xD! (LJ equivalent to a Ha! Ha!)

And man, if you do name your kids Phineas and/or Amaryllis, I will both covet and pity them. Imagine the ridicule. :(

But you're wonderfully interesting! And you write great fanfic!

I mean, that's why we're buddies, neh!?

(Although I exaggerated a teensy bit...xD)

I would...probably. Depends on what the father says, if they are still required by then. At least they are actual names, not something I've made up or a piece of landscape, like Sky.

Sometimes I think so too, don't worry. And yes!

Pah! Exaggeration is great.

Or a month. Or something nuts like Sharmonica or LaQuisha. Or Bogart. xD

WHOOOOO.

THREE PEOPLE WHO HAVE TO TAKE THIS QUIZ NOW OR DIE PAINFULLY

3. Everyone else


I'm confused. Do I fit in category 1, 2 or 3?

Unnerving.

I didn't particularly want to single anyone out for aforementioned painful death if they didn't take the quiz. I mean, freedom of choice and all that tosh.

You can take 1, if you like. xD

No worries. I am probably a geek, or a nerd, or a swot, but seeing as those words are used by people who're jealous of me (trust me, I've no idea WHY they are) I don't use them. I am A MONK OF COOL! Also delusional. xD

(Is that Luke Skywalker in your icon, or am I waaaaaaaaaay off base?)
