3 things I want to do really badly right now: in this very moment--go home, watch the rest of The Aviator, and get some Chinese for lunch; in the near future--finish my book, lose weight [the approximate mass of a Backstreet Boy, if you must know].
3 things that scare me: getting in the way of what God wants for my life; leaving things unfinished when I die; not setting a good example for my sisters.

3 ways I am stereotypically a boy: I can be aggressive and argumentative when need be; I forget things...a lot (especially people's names); my love for Cubs baseball, Texans football, and NHL Hockey.
3 ways I am stereotypically a girl: I listen and console; I can appreciate romantic movies and the need for a good cathartic cry once in a while; I'm very much a feelings person, and a pathetic romantic at heart.
3 celeb crushes: the lovely Scarlett Johannson; the breathtaking Natalie Portman; the incomprable Uma Thurman. (funny how they hardly fit my "type" as indicated above.)
There you are, GDawg.
