What's your biggest vice? Procrastination. Putting off things I don't like doing, like my college applications.

Name your favorite vice. Sushi. I feel guilty eating all that tuna. Also, I'm addicted to the TV show, Amazing Wedding Cakes.

What's a vice in others that you find annoying? Nail-biting. I can't stand the noise it makes or the way it looks.

If you were bent on over-eating, where'd you go to do it? I'd stay at home, order Chinese takeout, and eat Ben and Jerry's.

Name your biggest vice. I've whittled most of them down. The biggest one left is occasional overimbibing.

What's your favorite vice? Imbibing, which is why it's still occasionally an issue.

What vice do you find most annoying in others? Lack of perspective in political views. That's pretty common at present.

Is there a vice you're fond of? I like people who feel a need to be funny nonstop. That may be a vice, but it's a fun one to have and to be around.

Is there a vice you have to cope with on a daily basis? Impatience. Teachers can get their impatience buttons pushed pretty easily.

Where do you go when you really want to shovel it in? Poor Richard's for their pizza.

Where do you head in order to seriously down a few? The Loop for margaritas.
