SW, this is great. I'm going to have to think about it, because I have my "set of answers planned if I were being asked by James Lipton on TV". :eyelashes:

Now I have to think of my real answers. :?

8) Who's going to go first? :lol:


I've never actually watched the show...are we supposed to be honest or facetious? Do the actors come prepared with answers? I'm guessing yes, if he always asks the same questions.
