What character from a movie most reminds you of yourself?
Have you ever bid for something on ebay?

Yoda. Although Hans Solo is cool too.
Does it annoy you when someone says they'll call but never do?
Depends how reliable they usually are, how important the call was and what I think of them.
What books, if any, have made you cry?
Can't remember. Some might have made me feel like it but I don't think I ever read a book and actually cried.
Do you think you're attractive?
Depends on mood. Physically I think I'm ok looking although I have my off days and own issues about how I look. Mentally I have some good traits and some very, very bad ones. So pass.
What are you allergic to?
No allergies, but I really don't like a lot of food. Probably allergic to culture too.
Are you a jealous person?
What's your opinion on sex without emotional commitment?
If it's what makes you happy and you're not hurting anyone then fine, but it's not for me.
Do you ever feel guilty after eating meat?
If you were born the opposite sex, what would your name have been?
Erm ask my parents that one. I wouldn't have had a say in it.
