How to submit your entry: send a PM to me with the subject line "January Contest Entry", containing your list of answers. Please arrange your answers by question number, and use one line per answer, like this:

I will attempt to keep it from overflowing, but in the event of it filling up with a last minute rush on January 27, only those entries which actually make it into my inbox will be accepted.
