Ponderings of a Blogger

Okay, here goes:
Recently while I was pondering the many aspects of designing one's blog I realized that the main purpose of creating polls on the side bar is to survey one's blog readers. Well, honestly, viewing results of anonymous surveys in which you state your favorite singer or book doesn't tell me very much about the people who view my blog or read my posts. For all I know, someone who states that they indulge in Twilight may be a teenager obssessed with heavy metal music, skateboarding, and comic books. And someone who states their love for Lady Gaga might be a senior in their late 70s who truly has picked up nothing from this century and spends their time knitting. Yup. So, anyways, this is completely optional (not that I could make it mandatory) but it just would greatly amuse me to read your answers to the following questions. So, without a further ado...the survey:
1. If I asked you what a logarithm is, would you know?
2. You have a yellow highlighter, a pink glitter glue pen, and a two inch black sharpie. You are completing a formal essay or form. Which of the former do you use?
3. You write a song called ______(fill in the blank).
4. Now, would you make a copyright statement for your song?
5. Do you play an instrument?
6. What is your favorite primary color? book? hobby? favorite...anything else that you might deem appropriate:
7. How do you write your fours? Your sevens? Your a's? How do you dot your i's?
8. Are you allergic to anything?
9. Your favorite computer font?
10. Your favorite school subject?
11. You are the main superintendent of an exclusive private school. What would you name it and what would the tuition fee be?
How long did it take you to find the O?
13. You are the owner of a highly successful fast food chain of restaurants...how would it be?
14. Order any type of food that you would eat at the moment.
15. state all the digits of pi that you know.
16. Honestly, do you know the lyrics to "Take Me Out to the Ball Game"?
17. Rate the latest movie that you have seen.
18. State your biggest talent.
19. You are wrapping a present. Explain your decoration decisions.
20. Do you have a blog? Do you regularly write in it?
21. Mac or PC?
22. Finally, please make up your own question and answer it. (See, I didn't make up the entire survey ;))
Thank you for taking your time to complete these questions. Sincerely, Starfire8.
