Just for Fun

Borrowed this from Kat.

1. You get to live the life of a character in any book. Who’s life would you live??

Any book? I can't think of any because I just don't read much fiction. Well, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" just popped into my head, but that is probably a little too close to my real life since I have to take care of four other people already. Oh, I know! I would be God in the Bible. ;-) LOL

2. I am taking you out to dinner. My treat, and the sky is the limit. What do you order, and where do we go?

Really, I'm not hard to please and don't require expensive meals to eat well. I would enjoy trying some new kind of food as long as it's not too exotic (no bugs or anything like that) or hot and spicy (I have a sensitive palate).

3. You have to eradicate a color, a number, a letter and a vegetable from this planet. What would they be, and why??

Do I have to? I don't think I could eliminate any color without that totally screwing up the visible light spectrum, or would it? Maybe I could kill "invisible" if you count that as a color. ;-) And I know of no number that we could live without. Just can't do it. The letter Q is probably not completely necessary, but I'd hate to kill it. And I agree with Kat about turnips. Ick. Kill them all!

4. You get to have a whole day to yourself, and spend as much money as you want. What would you do?

Buy a few more days. ;-)

5. You are another race. What did you choose and why?

I'd be Native American because I've always felt a strong affinity to their culture and everything ever since I can remember.

6. You get to decide the religion of the world.. everyone will follow it. What would it be?

See the answer to question number 1. LOL It would be Rae Annism. (waiting for the lightning bolt to strike)

7. I give you a pencil, paper and wave some creative faerie dust on you, what do you make?

The Answer to All Questions.

8. If you could go back in your life, what would you change??

I would have bought the houseboat I wanted right after I got out of college. I've never really lived totally on my own.

9. Your life is falling apart. Seriously falling to pieces.. no dramatics. You are losing your job, your house, your spouse, everything is on the verge of crashing. What would you do?

Pick up whatever pieces I wanted and start over. What else can you do?

10. Just for fun, you get to ask any question to me. And I will try my best to answer. What will you ask?

Who am I asking what? I'm tired of asking questions. Just give me some answers, dammit. ;-) But feel free to ask me anything, and I'll give you some kind of answer. lol

1. You get to live the life of a character in any book. Who’s life would you live?

One of my favorite books, albeit non-fiction, was "Confessions of a Hooker" by Bob Hope. I think because of the amount of enjoyment he brought to people all over the world over the course of a very long career and, of course, the amount of golf he played, he would be my character.

If it has to be fiction, I think Pip from "Great Expectations" would be the character. The growth and maturity of this character over the course of his life is inspiring.

2. I am taking you out to dinner. My treat, and the sky is the limit. What do you order, and where do we go?

We fly to Hawaii and dine on any number of fresh fish delicacies (salmon, mahi-mahi, cooked, not raw), drink Blue Hawaiians and gaze at the sunset over the Pacific. Thanks for a great night! ;-)

3. You have to eradicate a color, a number, a letter and a vegetable from this planet. What would they be, and why?

Brown is the color to go, no doubt. Bo-o-o-oring. I'm not sure I could eliminate a number, either. The letter would be x because it figures so prominently in mathematics. And the veggie: definitely cauliflower...the only vegetable so obnoxious that even chlorophyl stays away from it.

4. You get to have a whole day to yourself, and spend as much money as you want. What would you do?

By myself? Start at St. Andrews, Scotland playing the Old Course, then fly back west to get in 18 holes at Pebble Beach. If I could bring others with me, I think I'd rent out Disney World for the day so my family and I could ride and shop til we drop...no lines, no waiting.

5. You are another race. What did you choose and why?

Maybe a Pacific Islander...some of the best looking, most relaxed people in the world, living in virtual Paradise on earth. What's not to like?

6. You get to decide the religion of the world.. everyone will follow it. What would it be?

A version of Christianity where there are no petty divisions between denominations. Catholicism works for me.

7. I give you a pencil, paper and wave some creative faerie dust on you, what do you make?

Some artistic masterpiece ala da Vinci or Michelangelo. But I don't know if there's enough faerie dust in the world to make me creative. lol

8. If you could go back in your life, what would you change?

I'd be more appreciative of my loved ones and figure a way to have spent more time with my dad and the other important people in my life who have passed.

9. Your life is falling apart. Seriously falling to pieces.. no dramatics. You are losing your job, your house, your spouse, everything is on the verge of crashing. What would you do?

Make sure my spiritual life is in order. Really, all that's certain in this life is that it's preparation for our afterlife.

10. Just for fun, you get to ask any question to me. And I will try my best to answer. What will you ask?

For fun? OK, if you could live anywhere you wanted in any kind of home (i.e. Italian villa, ranch in Napa wine country, castle in England) where and in what kind of home would you live?

Missed this earlier. ;) Good answers. I almost picked native american, but I have so much Cherokee in me I wasn't sure that would count as a whole different race. hehe.

dh, your answers all so nice! Hawaii sounds great. As for your question, I think I'd like to live here:

The "Grotto" is my favorite thing. Maybe I was the Mad King in a past life? LOL

kat, that's cool!
