1. Do you like horror movies? Do they scare you?

2. Heels or flats? (or other)

3. Brag of the day-Newsweek ranks the 2 high schools in my district in the top 5 percent of American high schoolsLaughing

I agree and I know the schools in my area and there are some on the list that I wouldn't send my kids to because unless you are in that top percentage, not so great.

I agree, I think public schools can be very good and I'm proud of mine.  We have a long list of successful people that have graduated from there.  I also know that there is more to a school than a few selected numbers.

Have you seen Cabin in the Woods?

No, don't watch horror movies 

2. Heels or flats? (or other)

Flats, what is the other choice?---sneakers or any other shoe that wouldn't be considered a heel or flat :)

Oh ok, didn't see any in the NY area with a grade of 90. I think the highest was 84.
