Can't we just skip the "Newbie" part?

Anyway I'll go first so that newbies don't need to be afraid :

1) Depends on the task, but I try to stick to "form follows function"
2) Back... easier to grab the paper I need with one hand (so that I can keep on holding my phone/book with the other) by pushing the roll against the wall
3) yes
4) Didn't have one. Probably "Mighty Eagle" from Angry Birds, the retired version
5) Give the handmade stuff I got from the last charitable fundraising. If I really have to make some easy woodworking.
6) After dinner in restaurants or at friends' I always ask for a double espresso
7) Does it smell like teen spirits?
8) Shark, as long as it doesn't have frickin' laser beams attached to its head
9) No
10) Where do you want to go?

Practical. No contest.
2) toilet paper should hang down from the front or the back?
Front.
3) can you speak more than one language fluently?
Not any longer. I used to be pretty good at German but would be very rusty now.
4) what was your high school mascot if you had one? If not, what should it have been?
Blue Devils
5) You have to make a gift for a charitable fundraiser. How do you make it? (knit, whittle, bake.........)
I might have to cut up some wood on the band saw.
6) after noon: decaf or regular?
Decaf. Did you know they make decaf by dripping petroleum distillates through the coffee beans so the caffeine is dissolved and leaches out?
7) which question smells most like hair?
Now that you mention it, this one does.
8) would you rather be attacked by a shark or an alligator?
Shark. In fact, if every shark on the planet became my sworn enemy, I think I'd still be safe here.
9) have you ever reused a postage stamp that didn't get franked?
I've considered it but chickened out.
10) plane or train?
I was gonna say plane, but then remembered I ride the train every day.

1) Shoes: practical or pretty? No, you can't have both
Practical - though "practical" includes being solid black, so I can use them in semiformal situations, like work.

2) toilet paper should hang down from the front or the back?
Front, unless you have a cat, which I don't.

3) can you speak more than one language fluently?
No. I took 6 years of Latin.

4) what was your high school mascot if you had one? If not, what should it have been?
Tiger

5) You have to make a gift for a charitable fundraiser. How do you make it? (knit, whittle, bake.........)
Tape

6) after noon: decaf or regular?
Regular, with hot chocolate. Just hot chocolate after, say, 7pm.

7) which question smells most like hair?
"What do you get if you multiply six by nine?"

8) would you rather be attacked by a shark or an alligator?
Shark. I know nobody's sending me candygrams, so they can't get me.

9) have you ever reused a postage stamp that didn't get franked?
I don't think so...

10) plane or train?
Probably would prefer train, but I typically travel to destinations that require plane.
