Been in a car accident? A minor one in highschool right after I had new brakes installed and the calipers cracked.

Favorite day of the week: Saturday??? Maybe Thursday.

Bedtime? When i turn out the lights, in about 5 minutes.

What is your favorite color? Green.

How many tattoos do you have? None.

Have you ever run out of gas? I almost did in Portugal once - we couldn't speak Portuguese and were lost on the side of a mountain in a VERY rural area. Couldn't understand the directions we were being given and it turns out we had driven past a gas station a half dozen times and didn't even realize it because the pump was inside the garage and not outside like it is here..

What is the last book you read? Guns, Germs and Steel and State of Fear. I read them on the same trip and don't remember which I finished first. I am now reading Guiliani's Leadership as well as the Kite Runner and The Art of War (oh yeah, and the Speer Reloading Manual, 13th Ed.).
