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 god­dessin­ga 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.

Cur­rent Mood: 🙂relaxed
Cur­rent Music: sam­bear and fae­bouche chat­ting in the kitchen
