Go Gos songs:
Go-Gos?

Gospels:
Ah - John. Hands down. I want to hear what's happening IN the Son more than around Him.

Season:
Summer - My opponent is suffering in the heat out on the court. Gives me one more advantage.
Oh, you mean in life...
Well, it used to be fall, when everything was dying. Somehow, I seem to be a little less depressed these days, though, and I think it might be Spring!

Teen Titan sans Robin: 1) Starfire; 2) Beast Boy; 3) Cyborg; 4) Raven
? Raven sounds cool.

Old West Outlaw: 1) Jessie James; 2) Billy the Kid; 3) Doc Holliday; 4) Butch Cassidy
Got to be Doc. Enjoyed reading up on him again just now.

Old West Hero: 1) Wyatt Earp; 2) Davy Corckett; 3) Buffalo Bill Cody; 4) Will Bill Hickcock
Davy was a genuine good guy. Got to shy away from the others.

Classic Rock Frontman: 1) Mick Jagger; 2) Roger Daltrey; 3) Robert Plant; 4) Ray Davies
Hmmm. The 2 I know, I don't like.

Biblical Name Starting w/ "J" Not Jesus: 1) James; 2) Jeremiah; 3) John; 4) Joseph
You know, I'm getting a soft spot in my heart for James of all people.

Active Non-English Language: 1) Spanish; 2) French; 3) German; 4) Russian

RWR

Popular Foundation U.S. Presidents: 1) Washington; 2) Jefferson; 3) Jackson; 4) Lincoln

Magellan. Dude, getting out in a boat the size of a small house and going around the whole world without a promise of anything?!

Middle Earth Beings: 1) Dwarves; 2) Elves; 3) Ents; 4) Wizards (Istari)
Dwarves. Give me "direct" any day.

Action Heroes: 1) Arnold; 2) Bruce Willis; 3) Sean Connery; 4) Van Damme
Willis. His innocent Joe backed into a corner so now he has to kill you schtick is the best.

Grisham Books to Movies: 1) A Time to Kill; 2) The Firm; 3) The Pelican Brief; 4) The Client
Darn. More popular culture. Pelican Brief was good.

Food/Candy Rockers: 1) Red Hot Chili Peppers; 2) Lemonheads; 3) Goo Goo Dolls; 4) Smashing Pumpkins

1) Head Over Heels (I think I could listen to Belinda Carlisle's voice from her and the Go Gos hit songs and rarely get tired of it)

2) John (although I love the Christmas Story and historic detail in Luke, so Luke's a virtual tie, but I had to pick one)

3) Autumn (the splendor of the leaves as they make their last stand, and the knowledge that they'll be reborn has a beauty that no other season can match, especially as you watch with a warm Fall breeze blowing through your hair)

4) Starfire (well... she's cute)

5) Doc Holliday (just living that line between good and bad made him too cool)

6) Crockett (he killed him a "baaaar" when he was only three and he died a matyr's death at the Alamo... c'mon)

7) Daltrey (The Who had more great songs than any of them, and Rog's classic "Yeeeeeeeeeeah!" in Don't Get Fooled Again is the greatest shout in rock history)

8) Joseph (even though my first name is John)

9) espanol (for all the practical reasons, although I love the sound of French)

10) Reagan (not close)

11) Washington (but I don't have a closer "tie" in my list than Washington and Lincoln)

12) Magellan (codepoke got the answer exactly right)

13) Elves (what's been done with the race of elves in Fantasy is incredible)

14) Arnold (Bruce Willis makes way better movies, but the Governor was Conan, he killed Predator, he was the Terminator and he killed later Terminators, not to mention a Kindergarten Cop -- what an actor!!! that last bit was a joke, btw

15) A Time to Kill (this one was before they all became formulaic)

16) Lemonheads (It's a Shame about Ray is a seamless masterpiece)

17) Alien (codepoke got this one wrong)

18) NASV (over the Net I usually read ESV, although I didn't list it as a choice, and I enjoy the KJV and NIV both as well)

19) Wal-Mart (although you really can't win with this one)

20) Florida (SEC baby!!! Although it won't hurt my feelings if George Mason wins it all)

Anyone who wants to copy my answers to get them all correct and a 100% A+, feel free. Joking, of course.

Go Gos songs: We Got the Beat
Because it's the only one I know.

Gospels: Luke
It's was tough deciding between Luke and John.

Season: Spring
Because it's finally warm outside!

Teen Titan sans Robin: I don't know what you are talking about.

Old West Outlaw: Jesse James
Because he is "America's Robin Hood"

Old West Hero: Davy Crockett
Because he's "king of the wild frontier", he wore the coolest cap, and because I live in Texas.

Classic Rock Frontman: Robert Plant
Because Led Zeppelin rocks! (and because he was influenced by Tolkein).

Biblical Name Starting w/ "J" Not Jesus: James
Because I have a couple of good friends named James

Active Non-English Language: Spanish
Because it's the nicest to listen to.

Popular Modern U.S. Presidents: RWR
This was the easiest one to answer. Even though I was born while he was president, and therefore unable to remember him while in office, his legacy is unforgettable. America is lucky to have had him serve as president.

Popular Foundation U.S.: Washington
Because he is the only president to to have been voted in unanimously by the electoral college, and because he was a good leader to those fighting for America.

Explorers: Marco Polo
Because I liked reading about him when I was a kid.

Middle Earth Beings: Elves
They are always clean. And the pointy ears are kind of cool.

Action Heroes: None. I prefer The Rock!

Grisham Books to Movies: The Client
Because I know one of the actors in the movie.

Food/Candy Rockers: Red Hot Chili Peppers
Because Californacation is fun to play on the bass guitar.

Sci Fi Monsters: Alien
I'm not sure why--maybe because I watched these movies a lot with my dad when I was younger.

Bible Version Read Most: KJV
Because it isn't copywritten, and because I like the language

Discount Shopping: Target
Wal-mart is cheaper, but Target is cleaner.

Final Four: None of them (but especially not LSU or Florida)! March madness is ruining my marriage.
