13 Questions

My sweet­ies have gone out for sup­plies. One of the sup­plies requires a trip into Atlanta prop­er, so it’ll be a while. I vol­un­teered to stay home with the kid­dies since two of them haven’t been to that par­tic­u­lar place before. I’m just hop­ing I’ll still be awake when they get home!

1) If you could be instant­ly flu­ent in one oth­er lan­guage that you cur­rent­ly do not read or speak, which would it be?
Ital­ian. I just love how it sounds.

2) If you could have the star­ring role in any film already made, what would it be?
I dun­no. I’d be thrilled to be Inara in Fire­fly, though.

3) If you could receive one small pack­age this very moment, who would it be from and what would be in it?
Hmm. It would have had to be from some­one who is dead now, but who knows—maybe his par­ents have that stuff now. While I was in the hos­pi­tal, my sec­ond hus­band took out a loan from his par­ents using all of my real jew­el­ry, among oth­er things, as col­lat­er­al. It was in both our names, though I had no knowl­edge of it at the time and did­n’t sign any­thing myself. When we split up, he kept all of the jew­el­ry. It includ­ed some things that had a lot of sen­ti­men­tal val­ue, but hon­est­ly, the whole mess could­n’t have had that much mon­e­tary val­ue. I still find myself look­ing for some of that stuff, like the antique cameo, at times, and miss­ing it. And I real­ly think the pearls he gave me on our wed­ding day should have gone to Katie.

4) If you could own one paint­ing from any col­lec­tion in the world but were not able to sell it, which work of art would you select?
Hmm. sam­bear real­ly loves Edward Blair-Leighton’s The Acco­lade, but you can eas­i­ly get posters of it. I don’t real­ly feel a need to own the orig­i­nal of some­thing to enjoy it. I’m more of a Carl Lund­gren fan, and his pieces aren’t as wide­ly distributed.

5) If you could pos­sess one super­nat­ur­al abil­i­ty, what would it be?
Healing.

6) If you could have only one piece of fur­ni­ture in your house, what would it be?
Prob­a­bly a bed. I don’t sleep well any­where else.

7) If you could read the pri­vate diary of some­one you know per­son­al­ly, whose diary would it be?
I would­n’t. I just would­n’t read any­one’s pri­vate diary with­out per­mis­sion. And hav­ing some­one else read your pri­vate diary makes it a very dif­fer­ent thing than it was before, so I would­n’t ask any­one to let me read such a thing.

8) If you could have one per­son you know as your slave well-paid and cared for domes­tic labor­er for one month, who would it be?
Oh my. Um, A prob­a­bly, because zie is both incred­i­ble com­pa­ny and intim­i­dat­ing­ly mul­ti-tal­ent­ed. Oh, and sexy. Very sexy.

9) If you could choose the way you will die, how would you want it to happen?
Hmm. Prefer­ably with­out pain or warn­ing, but then again, I’d like a chance to say good­bye to those I love and wrap things up as well as possible.

10) If you had to choose the worst home you’ve ever lived in, which one was it?
Hmm. Prob­a­bly the base­ment apart­ment in my first moth­er-in-law’s house. Not because it was such a dread­ful place or because I had a prob­lem with my MIL (if I could have divorced him and kept his fam­i­ly, I would have!), but because that’s where we were liv­ing at the rather icky end of my first mar­riage and we real­ly did­n’t have enough pri­va­cy, which prob­a­bly con­tributed to the prob­lems between us.

11) If you could have pre­vent­ed one thing from hap­pen­ing between you and a friend, what would it have been?
I would­n’t have drift­ed apart from them.

12) If you had to describe your­self as a child in one word, what would it be?
Before or after the sex­u­al abuse stuff? Before: exu­ber­ant. After: closed.

13) If you could own a sin­gle prop from any film ever made what would you choose?
Hon­est­ly? I can’t even remem­ber a sin­gle prop from any film. I’m not big on films. You could prob­a­bly tell by now, huh?
