(I swear <a href="<a href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/persephone767/285803.html?thread=935787#t935787">I saw these</a> the other day, <b>Pers</b>, but haven't had time to answer them. Thank you!)

<ol><li><b>If you could have children, would you? Biologically or by adoption, however you could end up with them.</b>

<lj-cut text="My answer"><blockquote>I have vacillated back and forth about kids for many, many years. There are times when I absolutely want them, and there are times when I know I'm too frelling selfish to even think about it. Since I'm <i>just now</i> settling down, I think the decision, if I (or we) were to make it, is still several years off. Do I think I'd make a good parent? Yes, and so would Quincy. But I also know the level of commitment required, and I question if I would be capable of that.

And given the choice, I would <u>adopt</u>, no question. And little Asian babies are so cute! I think I'd want a little girl.</blockquote></lj-cut>

<li><b>What would you do with $1M?</b>

<lj-cut text="My answer"><blockquote>As I wrote in a previous question, I'd pay off my debts, set up college funds for each of my nieces and nephews, make sure Mom was doing ok, buy a new car, and maybe even start looking at houses to buy, plus splurge with a new wardrobe and renewing my Annual Passport to Disneyland. I'd also give some to various charities. But the <i>absolute first</i> thing I would do is hire Tommy to be my financial advisor! :D</blockquote></lj-cut>

<li><b>My hair is naturally auburn, but I'd kinda like to color it someday. I have a little gray, but just some strands here & there. What color do you recommend, if any, and why?</b>

<lj-cut text="My answer"><blockquote>Maroon. I like brown hair with dark maroon highlights.</blockquote></lj-cut>

<li><b>Cats or dogs?</b>

<lj-cut text="My answer"><blockquote>I love dogs, but I'm a cat person, and I desperately miss my Bart! :(</blockquote></lj-cut>

<li><b>In your opinion, what is the most pressing issue facing your state today, and how would you solve it?</b>

<lj-cut text="My answer"><blockquote>The economy, and I don't think I'd solve it the way Arnold is. Maybe <u>freeze</u> spending and raise taxes a <u>little</u>, but the cutbacks he's pushing are devastating.

If I had my <i>choice</i> of problems to solve, it would probably be funding for the school systems, but then again I work in academia now. :)</blockquote></lj-cut></ol>

Thanks so much! And for everyone who has requested I ask them questions, I haven't forgotten, so keep checking back!

Questions for you to poop on.
You just gotta ask, you halfwit:

  1. List the three things you think are essential to your perfect mate.

  2. The house has caught on fire, and you can only grab one thing - what is it? Why?

  3. If you could have any animal for a pet, what would it be? Why?

  4. What is your ultimate comfort food?

  5. You walk into a party and find a bear, a fish and a buzzard whispering, but they suddenly stop when they see you. What do you do?

Questions for you
You asked for it:

  1. The President has just offered to put you in charge of one aspect of the country. Which do you choose, and why?

  2. What's your favorite amusement park? Which ride(s) is/are your favorite?

  3. You are given the ability to relive, without changing, one day of your life. Which day would you choose?

  4. Red, white, or blue?

  5. Prove you exist. Show your work.

Re: Questions for you
1) The President has just offered to put you in charge of one aspect of the country. Which do you choose, and why?

Education. I see first hand at the school where I volunteer the lack of funding, quality teachers, safe buildings, teaching materials, etc. Our country has a displaced system of value when it comes to education. We will pay millions of dollars to a sports figure or actor but pay teachers under $50K. Good teachers are worth their weight in gold.



What's your favorite amusement park? Which ride(s) is/are your favorite?

Disney World. I never went as a child. Sauron took me for the first time a few years ago and I loved it. We went back about a year and a half ago and are planning another trip this December. I am not a big thrill ride type person but I just love the entire atmosphere at DW. I like the Haunted Mansion because the kids get such a kick out of it. I like wandering around Epcot. Man...I'm getting happy just thinking about the fact we are going again this year!


You are given the ability to relive, without changing, one day of your life. Which day would you choose?

Wow...that is a tough one. I honestly don't know. The birth of my first child was not a pleasant experience so I don't think I would want to go there again. The second child was much more of a peaceful time so that is a possibility. The day Sauron and I got married was a great day. Days I have spent on different family outings pop to mind. I don't think I could narrow it down to one particular day.

Red, white, or blue? Blue.


Prove you exist. Show your work.

Can anyone really prove they exist? I could point you to my 2 children and you can see me in each of them. That's as close as I could probably get to showing I exist...through them.

Thanks, Esprix! I always enjoying reading your entries and find you very interesting.

Re: Questions for you
Um, dear? You cut and paste the questions into your own journal and answer them there. Then if anyone replies and asks you to, you have to ask them 5 questions, and they do the same thing.

So go cut and paste. And thanks. :)

Re: Questions for you
The President has just offered to put you in charge of one aspect of the country. Which do you choose, and why?

--Universal Health Care. We need it desperately. Most other countries in the world have it. The only reason we don't is the health insurance companies have highly paid lobbiests in Washington to prevent that from happening.

What's your favorite amusement park? Which ride(s) is/are your favorite?

--Once upon a time I would have said Disneyland. I guess I still enjoy it for the nostalgia value, but Knott's Berry Farm is a lot nicer and not as crowded.

You are given the ability to relive, without changing, one day of your life. Which day would you choose?

--I don't know that I would. If I chose the happiest day of my life, it would just depress me when I returned to the present. I'd probably pass on the offer.

Red, white, or blue?

--Um, blue.

Prove you exist. Show your work.

--The beauty of self-awareness is that I don't have to prove I exist. You all have to prove to me that *you* exist.

Re: Questions for you
Well, you can cut and paste these into your own journal if you like, but the idea is that when someone interviews me, I cut and paste the questions into my journal and answer them. Then if someone replies to that entry and asks me to interview them</i>, I ask them 5 questions, they cut and paste those into their own journal, answer them, and so forth.

So, the question is, do you want me to ask you 5 unique questions, just for you, for you to answer in your own journal? :D
