What's your best teenage memory? It'd have to be the two years I just spent driving around the country. There's no one single moment, but just all of it.

What's your best bowling score? I've never bowled in my entire life. ... I'm a freak.

What's the best drive you've ever taken (in Colorado)? Every day when I go home, and the third exit to Manitou ... it goes up real high, and you go down this long road. But right before you get off, I always stop there and pull over, and it's just gorgeous. That's the best drive.

What's the best reason to vote in the 2000 elections? Because George W. Bush should not be president.

What's the best thing, ever? Pure, unadulterated bliss.

What's your best teenage memory? Well, my first girlfriend, I guess.

What's your best bowling score? [My] best bowling score would be 190.

What's the best drive you've taken (in Colorado)? To Aspen.

What's the best reason to vote in the 2000 elections? I don't know if there is a best reason to vote; it's just always a good idea. Probably because of both parties' campaigns to improve school funding.

What is the best thing, ever? Caramel cappuccinos at Starbucks.

What's your best teenage memory? It'd probably be my first love ... best and worst.

What's the best drive you've ever taken (in Colorado)? In Boulder, by the watershed.

What's the best reason to vote in the 2000 elections? I've been to other countries like Africa, and even European countries. And it's just for appreciation of our country and the fact that we do have a lot of liberties here. It's not perfect, but it's the next best thing.

What's the best thing, ever? God. Absolutely.

What's your best teenage memory? My best one was hanging out with my friends on a hot summer night at the park, drinking underage, and going and toilet-papering people's houses for fun. There wasn't a whole lot to do in Woodbridge, Virginia.

What's your best bowling score? My best bowling score was 183. It was a long time ago.

What's the best drive you've ever taken (in Colorado)? Up to Cripple Creek. I really enjoyed that drive through the hills and the mountains; it was gorgeous.

What's the best reason to vote in the 2000 elections? Well, if you don't vote, it really makes it difficult to complain or to try to get anything done.

What's the best thing, ever? Good friends, a good bottle of tequila, and a good place to share it at. Just hanging out with friends, there's probably not much better than that. If you can die saying that you've got a bunch of friends, then I think you've made an impact on this world.
