Instructions:

1. Copy this whole list into your diary.

2. Bold the things that you have in common with the survey you copied. (Please tell us who's survey you copied, so we know with whom you have stuff in common. Be picky. Pick someone you like or don't know or whatever!)

3. Whatever you DO NOT bold, replace with things about YOU. Take note, ALL 100 are about Violet Leigh, the bold ones I have in common with Alison. You bold what you have in common with me then make up new things about YOU for the rest. (To bold something, put this in front of it: čbõ and this after it č/bõ. If you don't do this, it won't be bold.)
