15. What kind of car was it?
My cars have been called by friends:

'99 Dodge Minivan -- Mom Mobile

2001 Toyota Echo -- Gay Blue Bubble, though I referred to it as my parents way of trying to kill me and seem really nice about it.

2003 Saab 9-3 -- Sexy (after a friend humped it)

2000 Mercury Sable -- "The Cop Car" (oddly this car led to my arrest once and very nearly did another time)

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee -- on DU, it's the Freepmobile

17. It was a very old green Chevy v-8 station waggon...
...it was on loan from my Uncle until I could get my own "official first car" which was a 1978 Toyota Corolla (which I drove down to the hubcaps!). I loved that Corolla....the station waggon...well, it was an embarrassing nightmare.

20. I've heard two things refereed to as a one eyed monster
In church, preachers would rant against TV as the one-eyed monster. It is/was an extremely fundy church. Outside of church, Waaaaay outside of church :D some refer to the penis as a one eyed monster (as if) :eyes:.
