NileCat, you were in my thoughts tonight! I'm sure you remember our discussion about the phrase "<whatever> on the brain". Well, tonight I was watching the American TV show Hell's Kitchen (hehe guilty pleasure). One of the chefs became totally frazzled and muttered that she had "chicken on the brain". That made me smile, especially because it made me think of you!

Back on topic, with regard to reading an e-book via IPad, Kindle or Nook... well, if some kind soul saw fit to give me one, I certainly wouldn't turn my nose up at it. I'd probably even make the attempt to read on it, but as of yet, I'm still not convinced that they are comfortable to hold. I imagine my hand would get fatigued very quickly :cry: .

Speaking of holding things, the next person is ambidextrous!

No, I'm right-handed.

@Snowflake: Since I didn't know the TV program, I watched a bit on Youtube. I found it very American. :mrgreen: A bunch of beeps... :evil: I got into it. 8)

The next person has thought over his/her entry in a reality TV show.

Well not a reality show, but I'm obsessed with the game show DERO lately! They are having auditions for regular people to be on the show and I'm thinking about trying out!

The next person never watches TV.

Not really. I scarcely watch TV recently as well as many others. It would be attributed to the development of the internet.

The next person had a PC trouble lately.

Actually my computer is running very smoothly recently.

@Nilecat BTW trouble is non-count, but problem is count! Count and non-count is one of the hardest things about learning English I think. That and articles!

The next person loves to study grammar!

Hmm...Who on earth loves to study grammar? ...Just kidding.
Thank you, becki! I think I know the importance of grammar more than anyone. But I wouldn't say it's fun. I try to make it as enjoyable as possible, though...

Anyway, the next person has already bought new swimwear for this summer.
(I know, I know...(C)swimsuit/(U)swimwear :roll: )

EDIT: But "the" or "his/her" is needed here? I always feel uncomfortable for some reason when a noun comes without any articles.

No, since it's not summer here, I haven't bought new swimwear. It's the middle of winter and way to cold to even think about going swimming!

The next person had a busy weekend and is still tired.

I'm off on Sunday/Monday, so I'm still in the middle of my weekend now. Yesterday was pretty busy though; it was our neighborhood clean-up day, so I had to get up early and sweep up around the park, then we went to the mall and to Rin's grandparents house so we didn't get home until 11:00 PM!

The next person likes to visit art museums when they have some free time.

Yes I do! In fact I'm taking my kids there tomorrow for school holiday activities. I'd love to see some of the art museums in Japan, when I go there next time, whenever that may be :) I especially want to go to the one in Atami.

The next person has arachnophobia.

While I'm no fan of spiders, I won't run screaming if I see one. Hehe did you ever see that movie Arachnophobia (came out in the late 1980s, I think). Man, that was gruesome! :D

I'm more of a bee/wasp-ophobic (partially because I'm allergic) and definitely a roach-ophobic (/shudder). And a mouse-ophobic. It's not so bad if I encounter mice and spiders outside, but inside is not good. And I don't care where bees, wasps and roaches are -- they ALL need to be gone!!! Ick!

The next person enjoys playing golf.

I've gone to the driving range with friends a total of 2 times in my whole life, and 've never played an actual game of golf, but I love love LOVE mini-golf. I used to always play with my family on summer vacation, and I'm looking forward to getting in a game when I visit the States this August.

The next person is a very careful driver.

I'm proud to say, in decades of driving, the only tickets I've ever received were parking tickets. I think I'm a good driver, a careful driver, a defensive driver, an alert driver. Apparently, my insurance company agrees :) . Once I sit behind the wheel, piloting this two-ton moving machine is my number-one priority. I'm totally in the moment, no distractions (not even a bee in the car, which happened once -- and I'm allergic :shock: ). I wonder if I'd have made a good emergency vehicle driver?

The next person has tried to kiss their own elbow. :whistle:

Since I didn't know the urban legend, there was no reason I had to try that. But now that I have known that I might be able to change my life, I kind of tried to do that. Turns out I can't.

The next person does yoga.

The next person has played a violin. :whistle:
