I read your answer and I realized that that was a smell I really did enjoy.

I got Paul's autorgraph in London during Buddy Holly week in the late 80's. He and Linda autographed my Flower's in the Dirt cassette cover.

In all honesty, I want to be remembered as someone who really loved what they did and was great at it-- being a musician. Creative, and amazing lyricist and guitarist. Energetic, and one of the best friend anyone ever had :P I also wouldn't mind a bit of bad. totally perfect people irk me as well.
26. What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
Thus far, that there aren't a lot of people you can count on.

Life is fragile. Every moment that you have is precious.
AND
You can't trust anyone.

I'd like to update my answer to #2. I just found out (thanks Mari) that vampires actually sparkle in the sun! So, I'd tend to be less afraid of that. So #2 is zombies. It's official now!

I don't "deplore" anything, but it irritates me that I don't have the willpower to stick to a diet and exercise program at the moment.

13. Have you ever said 'I love you' and not meant it?
No. I don't say it all that often, but if I say it, I mean it, at least in some way.

21. What single thing would improve the quality of your life?
If my boyfriend could find a good job that he likes and that pays half way decently. Then we could travel, do fun stuff and even think about maybe buying a house, plus he'd just be happier and that would make me happier. :)

Turning myself into a happy and positive person. And playing at the Cavern Club with my band in 2008!
