Full name: Ambermarie. You know, why do all surveys start out like that? Why don't they get to the important stuff...like "Do you use ice in drinks or no ice?" first? *g*

Words or phrases you use too much: "Amazing". Everything good, great, or excellent is just "amazing" here. Lately I've been using "Exactly, exactly!" too much in online conversations, for whatever odd reason. Oh, yes, I also use "Quite odd" too often, which is "quite odd" itself. SEE...*g*

Dream car: You know, I'm quite fond of our car, really. *g*
Coolest experience(s): LP! Landover 94 and 96, the OPIA competition early morning/day/night...*g* And Target, and various cinema-goings and theatre-goings, because it's always fun.
Scariest thing you've ever done: Um, well, I guess I'm a chicken, because I really can't think of anything. *G* Okay...umm...going up on stage when we were at the Orpheum was quite freaky because I thought someone was going to come in and scream at us. Yeah, yeah, I know, that's a lame excuse of a scary experience. Um...everytime I went up to skaters at like Landover was quite scary. Basically, any "bold moment"...hee hee!
Fave thing to do in the summer: Oh, gee, I'll try to actually think of an answer this time instead of "stay cool". Okay....Wait for the Oscar worthy films to come out....Play "StuidoBoss" on the E! Website...and enjoy listening to the rainstorms.
Fave thing to do in the fall: Going for walks without totally sweating and being insanely hot.
Fave thing to do in the winter: Have skating on tv...(Hey maybe this year it'll be back to normal!)...Drink hot chocalate and not look totally insane like you would drinking it in the summer...Watch all the website-owners change all their backgrounds and sets to "wintery" themes...(Yes I am odd...I knew that already)....Predict the Oscar noms...

Character traits I look for in a person: Honesty, sense of humour , Over-all "niceness" (That's just not nice...hee hee), Seems interested in what you say even if they really don't care...*g*...and, um...mature but immature. Yeah, that totally made sense...hee hee...
Biggests annoyances: Little annoyances, right? When computers are annoying, When your CD Player runs out of batteries, and when television channels change a perfectly good line-up...hee hee.
Bad habits I would like to cure: You know..."I love me" and I quite like any bad habits I have--even though I have quite a number of them...I wouldn't cure them.
What I want to be: In NYC! Umm...that counts, doesn't it? *g*

Groups/singers you enjoy: I listed above already...Madonna, Celine Dion.
Favourite "classical" composer(s): Beethoven. I can do Ode to Joy, yay me! *g* And Rachmaninov, but if you think I can do anything of his, you are truly insane. *g*
Favourite pieces of "classical" music: Vocalise, Elegy...and, yes, I really DO like classical music that people haven't skated to...hee hee.
Handle(s): Savershena for AOL, ggtlm for Yahoo!, and Amm in any other chats. I wasn't feeling creative on the other chats, okay? *g* Really, choosing a handle is a lot of work. How can you fit every single interest in one handle? *g*
