So the point of this questionnaire is, you have to put an ‘X’ by the things you identify or agree with. I cannot for the life of me remember where I found this, but it’s a cool questionnaire. Feel free to partake in ‘Comments’ or on your own blog. I just commented on each and every ‘question,’ just to put in two bits, you know? I’m feeling talkative, so.
1. YOUR BOY SIDE
