LM: Awesome What's your worst habit?

LM: Speak German. Who would be your dream date?
LM: David Beckham. Who would you trade places with for a day?
LM: Probably the Secretary of State. That would be really cool. You would know everything that was going on and if you only did it for a day you wouldn't have to make too many important decisions. Iphone/blackberry/droid?
LM: Other. My cell phone is a piece of trash. What's your favorite Durham restaurant?
LM: Whenever my parents come for my birthday we go to Magnolia Grill. Do you have any superstitions or pre-meet rituals?
LM: I race in the same sports bra and I like to eat a peanut butter and banana sandwich for breakfast. Do you have any embarrassing music on your ipod?
LM: Tons (laughs). I have two Hannah Montana cd's. It is partly my sister's fault, but also I kind of like the songs. Who has had the most impact on your life and why?
LM: I've got to say my parents just because they are my parents, they pretty much shape everything about you. What's on your bucket list?
LM: Skinny dipping definitely (laughs).
