Re: What do you order at Subway?

My Subway sandwich favorite is pretty simple: I usually get a turkey sub with american cheese, lettuce, and black olives on Italian bread. Sometimes I'll also have mustard and/or tomatoes, if I feel so inclined.

Re: How often do you shower or bathe?

Really? How long are you showering that is has a non negligible impact on sleep time? I mean, it takes me about 3 minutes in the morning, maybe double that for the great weekend washup with shampoo n' stuff. I usually take about 10-15 minutes I think, but in order to feel absolutely confident that ...

Also, I often will only shower twice over the course of the average Friday-Sunday period. I like to give my hai...
