Go to and write the answer to each question in the "look up" box and paste (your favorite) definition on a copied version of this meme.

1. Your name?
A funny girl. Really smart, and usually doesn't act her age (whether it be acting older or younger). Jennifers have amazing eyes and love to laugh and smile. They generally enjoy the finer things in life. They have trouble showing their feelings, and take sometime to warm up to new poeple. They don't trust easily, but that shouldn't stop you from trusting them, they are very trustworthy. They need someone who will listen to them and give their honest opinion. Jennifers are very blunt, and speak their minds often. They are caring and usually very sexy. They know how to flirt in a very subtle way that drives men crazy. They know how to get what they want. Jennifers are very good friends.

(I had to correct the grammar mistakes on this one. :P)

2. Your age?
Often want to belong somewhere, or to something at any rate. Most, I admit, are grumpy, rebellious, low-life. But some are GREEEAATTT!
But please, please, listen to them! They often have a lot of very interesting things to say and are lovely peeps :).
Most definitions are extremely biased, and very hypercritical. They describe teenagers as grumpy, whining kids. But if you say that, it's something along the lines of: Pot calling the kettle black ;)

3. One of your friends?
The most wonderful person in the world. Kind, sweet, loving, caring, gentle. Perfect in every way. The one you love for all your life.

(And this is so true, Mrs. F.)

4. What should you be doing?
summer homework
Homework that students receive to complete over the summer vacation, typically because of Advanced Placement classes.

5. Favorite color?
The best color in the world.

6. Hometown?
City of approximately 146,000 residents, and counting. Located in the center of Orange County. Close to almost everything. 30-minute drive or less to Laguna Beach, Long Beach, Disneyland, and San Juan Capistrano-San Clemente. 45 minutes from downtown L.A. in good traffic; approximately double that in bad. 90 minutes or less from San Diego.
America's most successful master-planned community. City is comprised of "villages," which are residential areas with common architectural themes, as well as commercial and industrial areas. Irvine Company, which still owns most of the land in the city, likes to say that villages were meant to be "jewels" and University of California, Irvine (UCI) the "pendant"; however, in "Where We Are Now: Notes from Los Angeles," essayist/L.A. Times commentator D.J. Waldie states that villages were also meant to dilute residents' political power and allow the Irvine Company to do as it pleased, "with the compliant oversight of County government." This attempt backfired in 1971, when residents revolted by incorporating the city and taking control of its future. Irvine development now much slower than 35 years ago, under "Master Plan."
Middle to upper-middle class. Excellent public schools, thanks in part to local charitable foundation. City school district receives lowest per-capita funding of any district in California, but donation offset allows schools to maintain extensive art, music, science, and athletics programs. Dedicated and involved parents and district staff ensures academic excellence. Educated population overall. UCI, biotech, and Fortune 500 corporations are major employers.
More liberal than one would believe, thanks to educated population. There is wealth in Irvine but overall mindset is very moderate, very suburban middle class. A diverse city with significant Asian, Middle Eastern, and Jewish populations. However, not many Latinos or Blacks. Irvine is quiet and sedate, because there really is no reason to visit unless you work here, enjoy biking, or are an urban planning major. Huge Great Park planned for northeast Irvine may change that. Getting around the city is pretty easy.
Living in Irvine, or the thought of it, can make some people uncomfortable. There is a sameness, the city is planned to the nth degree, and there is no element of weirdness except for the city itself. On the other hand, there are beautiful views of the Santa Ana mountains to the north and the coastal range to the south, a coastal climate without as much overcast, an excellent bike trail system, lush foliage, practically anything you could need or want either within or near city limits, and a refreshing absence of social problems.
Residents are above-average pleasant and polite, as a general rule. For example, people might drive BMWs but are less likely than residents of neighboring Newport Beach to speed them in and out of traffic on a coke rush while yelling into a cell phone.
Good Japanese, Korean, and Middle Eastern restaurants.
Irvine Spectrum is also called "Irvine Speculum" due to shape of the merged 5 and 405 freeways, which resembles the gynecological implement.
UCI said to also stand for "University of Chinese Invasion" due to high Asian student population.

(...don't stalk me. This place is the safest city in the U.S., last time I heard. Cops are uber-paranoid.)

7.Birth Month?
The best month out of the entire year. That's why they left it last.

8. Last person you talked to?
Woman who is convinced she is always right, never makes mistakes, nothing is her fault, and that you're never good enough.
She likes to chew food loudly, drink gin and tonics, and then chew on the ice.
She enjoys yelling and pointing out things you do wrong.
She hates everyone and everyone hates her, and she likes to point that out while lying on her bed while complaining that you don't do enough.
She is the soul cause of your depression, the concusion you suffered when you were 10, and your obsession and anxiety problems.
You love her.

9. Where are you right now?
computer room
Place where the computer is. DUH!
or the most awesomenest room in the house. besides the bedroom. ;)

(I prefer to call it my study.)

10. Your nickname? 
An amazing name. People with this name usually kick ass at everything they do.

They're really nice about names, I've found. And it's funny -- I think -- how everyone but me has found entries for where they live :P

(I'm going to have to save that definition of 'mom'.)
