2. Mangesh (floss Co-founder), Jenny (Senior Editor, magazine) and I moved into our new Brooklyn office this week. Right now, the walls are literally a blank canvas. Got any ideas for how we should cover them?

3. Keeping with that theme, what's the most embarrassing poster to ever adorn your bedroom wall?

5. Let's say I offered you the chance to go study abroad for a semester, regardless of your age, financial situation and family obligations. (Let's be clear: I'm not offering this.) Where would you go? What would you study?
