What is your idea of perfect happiness?
leisure time with friends and books and water, but not too much heat.
What is your greatest fear?
It used to be heights, but that doesn't seem to bother me as much these days. Failure is a safe one, but I feel like I fail at things constantly, and overall, I tend to shake it off or try to do better next time. I think my biggest fear is that people will recognize that I'm a fraud. That I'm not nearly as together as I try to convince people I am, and not nearly as smart.
With which historical figure to you most identify?
There's never been anyone like me. (hee hee) John Hancock, I think. He was a man of strong ideas and vision and no one ever really took him seriously. He was marginalized by state of choice (No one will ever elect a president from Massachussets! Sound familiar?), and even though he had everything he could have wanted materially, what he really wanted was respect and honor from the people around him. For what it's worth, John, I respect you. How is this like me? I don't know. I just know when when I thought on this question, this was the first and only answer that popped into my head. I would certainly rather be more like Ambrose Bierce or Mark Twain, but I'm, well, not.
Which living person do you most admire?
That really varies by the day. I'm surrounded by people who are so intelligent, so compassionate, so utterly worthy, that it's hard to pick one person and stick with it. I think I'm lucky to have so many wonderful people around me that I can't choose just one.
What vehicles do you own?
2001 Chrysler Sebring Sedan *drool*
What is your favourite journey?
I love just driving around aimlessly with hoppie
What is your favourite fantasy?
I don't think that's appropriate for my journal, really.
Where would you like to live?
I am living where I'd most like to live. I miss my family, but mostly, I love living here.
What do you most dislike about your appearance?
Probably my size.
What is your most unappealing habit?
What is your greatest extravagance?
I'm being so good right now. Probably sushi. I can't even say my DVD player, because I've been so good of late. Lately, I've been taking my pleasure in cheap thrills, because I've spent too much money on necessities which are joint extravagances.
What is your favourite word?
All of the sudden, indolence. What a lovely sound. My dad's favorite word is copacetic. I don't know.
For what cause would you die?
To provide a means for others to live.
What or who is the greatest love of your life?
My palmtop computer. No one who knows me would dispute this.
What single thing would improve the quality of your life?
First thing we do, lets kill off all the lawyers. j/k. The quality of my life would be vastly improved if everyone actually knew how and actively tried to get along with other people.
What would your motto be?
Complex solutions to simple problems.
How would you like to die?
I wouldn't. That was easy.
No, no, if I had to choose, I'd like to die surrounded by my family: my children and grandchildren.
