Continued from yesterday:

WHICH DO YOU PREFER, SPORTS CAR OR SUV? oh DON'T get me started. sports car. ...SUVs, the smaller jeep-like ones are fine, but big ones are only needed by people who regularly haul LOTS OF STUFF over DIRT ROADS and not SUBURBAN PAVEMENT. anyway, how about some better mileage and safety features?

FAVORITE CAR? Mine! Or a convertible, of any flavor.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE AFTERLIFE? No. Do I hope I'm wrong? Yes.

FAVORITE SANDWICH FILLING? Sharp cheddar cheese, with mayonnaise, on whole wheat. Other things can come along for the ride, like ham, but it's all about the cheese.

FAVORITE CHILDREN'S BOOK? "The Hobbit" is the obvious answer, but "Eloise in Paris" (which added the verb "to sklathe" to my vocabulary), "Castle" and "City" by David Macaulay, Susan Cooper's "The Dark Is Rising" series, Diane Duane's "So You Want To Be A Wizard" series, and Ann McCaffrey's early Pern books (esp. the Dragonsong trilogy) were all central at various times. And anything that had wonderful detailed pictures of a lot of things going on at once could keep me happy for a long, long time. Still can.

TRUE LOVE? is what bwings us togevah, today.

WHAT'S YOUR LEAST FAVORITE HOUSEHOLD CHORE? Most of them. I guess dusting, 'cause I don't really see the point of it, and you have to move everything, and bleh.

WHAT CHARACTERISTICS DO YOU DESPISE? I guess I kind of answered this already. Meanness, greed, hypocrisy, dishonesty, unwillingness to respect others, selfishness.

IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE SUPER POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE? Flight. Like Superman, not Hawkman.

FAVORITE FLOWER? hrmrmrm. This very pale peachy-pink-touched rose that my mom has that I don't remember the name of. French Lace, maybe. It smells VERY VERY GOOD, and thus beats out California poppies by a nose.

DO YOU HAVE A TATTOO? IF SO, WHERE? No. I've thought about getting an anklet of some sort once or twice, but I doubt I ever will.

IF YOU HAD A BIG WIN IN THE LOTTERY, HOW LONG WOULD YOU WAIT TO TELL PEOPLE? I would get my parents' advice as to the best way to proceed right off, but I might not tell anybody else until everything was signed, sealed, and first installment in the bank.

Depending on how big a win we're talking about, I would quit work, but I would finish my ongoing projects first.

note: writing, despite the anxiety surrounding it and frequent procrastination from it, counts as "fun" not "work."

To be continued.
