    thanks for doing this! I like your answers. I am also old. You don’t look too old in your youtube videos though. but I look younger than I am so know that is possible. I feel like I’m way older than most people on here though.

      SAME!! I feel like I’m WAY older (in fact, I know I am for the most part haha). I also behave and speak (type) as if I’m younger, too. But do we ever really grow up? I had a lot of fun doing this. Thank you for adding me to your nomination list! :)

    Well I suppose you’ve seen Battlestar Galactica if you like science fiction…not the old one. If you haven’t seen it, your heart will break when it ends, because it’s over.

      Oh, yes. I love reimagined BSG all right. And it did break my heart. I try not to watch the last two episodes on Netflix anymore, because it’s hard enough to face that there will not be anymore BSG, but the story itself is just so damn tragic.
