1) What is your superpower?
To say what should be said, according to sambear.
2) Did you really mean to post this twice? 🙂
No, I didn’t mean to post it twice. One of those annoying server whoopsies 🙂
3) Are there any good communites or support groups for people who’ve just discovered their bisexuality?
Try http://www.binetusa.org/ for a start?
4) Second question: where were you born?
If that was the second question, what was the first? But the answer is The Holy Name of Jesus Hospital in Gadsden, Etowah County, Alabama
5) What is one of your favorite memories?
Singing my first niece to sleep in the hospital the day she was born. Her mother ended up calling me most days to sing to Rachel on the phone when she was fussy.
6) What song has the power to bring you to tears faster than any other?
It used to be “I Can’t Make You Love Me,” but that one has really lost its power as I moved on from the unhealthy relationship I was in. I think it’s “Life is Eternal” now, because that became a lifeline for Katie while her father was dying, and we played it at his graveside at her request.
7) What is your absolute dream job (the one that you would want in your wildest dreams!) 🙂
Dream job, hmm…you know, I’ve enjoyed technical writing more than absolutely anything else for which I’ve been paid, and that’s the kind of job that I really, really want again. But if I were truly filthy rich, I’ve always thought I’d like to buy one of those huge old houses in the downtown area of a city, renovate it, and open it up. I thought it would be a bookstore, with spaces to sit and read or sip coffee or tea or chat. Then I realized we’d need a cafe—but not a Starbucks, thankyouverymuch (I started thinking about this back before I’d seen a cafe in a bookstore other than the Cup and Chaucer that was in Oxford Books). I’d want a stitching area just because I love getting other people started on something I enjoy so much. We’d have to have music and a place for people to make music together. These days I figure we’d have to have internet connectivity too. Now we’re heading into something kinda like Innovox, with couches and comfy places to just sit and be. But there’d have to be gaming stuff and miniature painting and oh yeah, well, with our kids we’re talking serious craftiness (clay and paint and glitter and whatever else they come across). I don’t actually want to be responsible for running the place—I’m the introvert. But see, now I have sambear and who are so wonderfully social and would take care of that, and I could just come out of my hidey-hole and enjoy the company, and then sneak away again.
