Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I never doodled in high school, preferring to wait until I got home to doodle.

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

What's the statute of limitations on confessions of this nature?

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Heh, I drew way too many fairies, elves, and ladies in poufy dresses--my 'art' generally reflected whatever books I'd just read. And there was poetry, too. Oh gods, so much terrible poetry alongside my florid doodling! There was one particular epic on which I still remember working through the whole school year (freshman year, so I was 14), about a lady who pushed her cheating lover into a mill's grinder and ended up eating his lone unground eye that was rolling around, after reflecting on the nature of relationships, love, and revenge (If I recall, I had just discovered the miserable beauty of thomas hardy and the delicious filth of 'romance' novels). It even rhymed! The surrounding doodles were appropriately ridiculous, I'm sure. They always were.

I had a separate notebook, or at least separate pages for doodling. Not that a few doodles didn't show up scattered throughout my notes, too...

I read that as drooling... I need to change my answer.

Nothing follows.
