Okay, I say it's time to put your own answers in here. We all want to know how we compare to the Brucetola. SMILE!
Me again. You forgot a Lego piece. There were the little 1 pieces. I used to like the round ones because it added something to my .. um, whatever they were.
I suggest you bring up this topic of moods on our e-mail list. It might make for some good conversation. What do ya think?


i'd just like to note that my favorite lego pieces aren't on there... the people!
also, i could have selected any of about 5 different answers for the "when i'm sad" question. i like this poll, it's an interesting one!
I'm with you on the lego pieces!
