What would you do for a Klondike bar?
Use "I seen" in a sentence. (see #5 answer)
 
If your car had a vanity plate, what would it say?
MV IM L8
 
What song or lyric best describes your life? 
"Paperback Writer" by The Beatles
 
Where do you see yourself in five years?
I see myself doing the same things I do now. Writing, working, shopping, being with family and friends, etc. Hopefully I'll just do it all with a little more sanity in five years.
 
What is your biggest pet peeve? 
I HATE when people use "saw" and "seen" incorrectly. When I hear someone say, "I seen..." in a sentence, I experience symptoms of a minor heart attack.

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
Ask not what I would do for a Klondike Bar, but what a Klondike Bar would do for me.
 
If your car had a vanity plate, what would it say? 
IH8 KTCHP
 
What song or lyric best describes your life?
"That's Not My Name" by the Ting Tings
 
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Well, that's just a silly question - I'd see myself five years older. Oh, I'm just kidding. All joking aside, I see myself pretty well off for an English major, as I've taken what I've learned from Salvador Dali's Diary of a Genius to invent a new shape of cheese for McDonald's McChicken sandwich.
 
What is your biggest pet peeve?
People with not so quiet iPods who listen to not so swell music. Excuse me, Miley Cyrus, but if I wanted to attend the "Party in the U.S.A." I would have gone to a Tenth Muse meeting.

Slightly less than I would do for a Big Bopper.

I won't have a vanity plate on my shopping cart.
 
What song or lyric best describes your life? 
Zac Brown Band- Toes, The Notorious B.I.G.- The Sky is the Limit.
 
Where do you see yourself in five years? 
I see myself in a place with warm weather, a cold swimming pool, a bar, a hot tub, and cold sheets on the beds. So I guess I see myself in a hotel. Five years from this day, I will be staying in a hotel. A hotel in a warm climate.  Mexico? Yeah, Mexico.
 
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Other people's pets.

"It's Friday, Friday/Gotta get down on Friday/Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend/Friday, Friday" ...Friday by Rebecca Black (Okay, I am SO kidding). My actual answer: "When you're happy like a fool, let it take you over" (Good Life by OneRepublic)
 
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Hopefully lots of traveling and having a job I really enjoy that lets me meet new people. I think it'd be fun to live in a big city—especially Boston because I have an unhealthy addiction of mimicking their accent all the tiiime. :)
 
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Wet doorknobs. Super gross.

Short pants! Seriously, we're not expecting a flood anytime soon.

Where do you see yourself in five years?
Hopefully I'll have a job or be working towards a Master's degree. Living in Colorado would be a plus.
 
What is your biggest pet peeve?
I h8 when peeple typ liek dis. That, and inedible garnishes on food; if I can't eat it, it doesn't belong on my plate.
 
WILL KELLY
Studio art, writing minor ‘11
 
What would you do for a Klondike bar?
Honestly, I don't really care for Klondike Bars, so probably not much. The real question, though, is what would I do for the privilege of traveling back to the 80s and sampling New Coke? Well, I'm told they still sell the stuff in American Samoa, so I think this calls for an ironic trip down there at some point in my future...
 
If your car had a vanity plate, what would it say?
Probably some obscure, soon to be dated pop-culture reference. At the moment, this would most likely be "FREEARL"
 
What song or lyric best describes your life?
"A Life of Possibilities" by The Dismemberment Plan
 
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Not caring about material things (like a social status) and just wanting four walls and adobe slabs for my girls.
 
What is your biggest pet peeve? 
Inserting words into the middle of other words; I'm thinking of “a-whole-nother” in particular. This is the grammatical equivalent of a turducken, and it needs to stop. Right now. (I'm also annoyed by our society's overuse of the word "random," but that's a-whole-nother issue...)

Jess Leonard JESS LEONARD-SCHENK
English, writing minor ‘11
 
What would you do for a Klondike bar?
Anything that doesn't involve breaking the law or risking life and limb, pretty much. I used to be offended by that question, but then I actually ate a Klondike bar and that was the end for me.
 
If your car had a vanity plate, what would it say? 
CatLady
 
What song or lyric best describes your life? 
"Rain Dogs" - Tom Waits
 
Where do you see yourself in five years? 
Ruling the blogosphere with an iron keyboard, of course.
 
What is your biggest pet peeve?
People who walk on the wrong side of the street. It's like driving...come on. The only excuse for walking on the "wrong" side is if you don't live in North America.

Fun Sized
 
What song or lyric best describes your life?
"It's Never Too Late" Three Days Grace
 
Where do you see yourself in five years?
I see myself trapped within tower stacks of homework, papers, essays, and tests. Or I am I confusing that with the present? Let's throw a space ship in there somewhere to make it futuristic.
 
What is your biggest pet peeve?
People who can't make up their minds. Oh, wait, that's not it. People who can't drive. Hhhm. No, take that back. People who can't make up their minds, final answer. Maybe.
 
Anna Kelley ANNA KELLEY
Assistant Professor of English
 
What would you do for a Klondike bar?
Wrastle the Klondike bear. 
 
If your car had a vanity plate, what would it say? 
774 XER (I’d pay the extra money for the issued number/letter combo to feel less vain about paying for a vanity plate.)
 
What song or lyric best describes your life?
“I wish I was a little bit taller / I wish I was a baller” – Skee-lo’s “I Wish”
 
Where do you see yourself in five years?
With about five more stamps on my passport. With five new bookshelves filled with new books. With hair past my shoulders again after a dramatic short cut at the two-year mark. A little smarter and happier.
 
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Judgment that comes from ignorance.
