  1. Wow the creepy room decor question did not need to go so hard, those were all such good/horrible options and it was impossible to choose just one! (I did end up going with the suspiciously blank one eventually though)

    Also I got “Finally Meeting a Celebrity You’ve Admired All Your Life and Saying Something Unforgivably Awkward” which definitely tracks

  2. I thought i was going to get something else, but instead I got “small talk”. Which… yes, it’s always been a landmine for me haha

    …what’s up with that room with photos of you and your relatives anyway, that gave me a shudder!
