Ah, Mr. Darcy! A good choice!

I, too, am an inappropriate blurter.

I agree with your answer to #28. Whenever people answer with "always the book," I think of The Godfather. The movie is elegant and evocative and the book is violent pulp fiction.

Was it more fun to play when you didn't have to ask the questions?

Your inappropriate blurting comment reminded me of a friend at the behavioral school I used to work at. She had a "blurt chart" and the kids would have to put a mark every time they blurted. Whoever had the least had the highest levels (so they were most eligible for point store, free time, etc.)
I would also like to be a professional napper.

Everybody is thinking of all these great super powers. I think I limited myself...I just tried to think of what the heroes in the comics can do. I'd like to sign up with you for teleportation. Oh, the hours I could save driving from here to there.
I bet your class is awesome!
Loving that everyone, even us Christians, say we're not religious. Religion and rules is where it all went wrong, I believe.

Professor McG. is a great answer!

The power to heal. That is such a wonderful power. Ditto teleporting. *dashes to change her answer*
Mr. Darcy is yummy. :o)
We both played field hockey, but you are so much younger that soccer made it's debut and spoiled it.
Professional napping sounds like a great occupation.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I suffer from obliviousness pretty regularly. How do you survive in a high school, center of Oblivious Teenagedom!?
