Because these are all I pose these days...  
From the lovely joonscribble:


Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile."
I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity.
Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.





1. Did you have a favorite stuffed animal or toy when you were a child?
My Grandma knit me this doll. It was pink and had brown hair and, retrospectively, probably quite ugly. I named her Saskatoon, after a song on the Canada version of Seseme Street which nobody remembers but me. She unravelled. I then had a doll I found at a second hand store, who, I've only realized recently, was black. She was a typical rag doll, noted for her large size which enabled me to put her feet in my roller skates and roll her around the room. I named her Saskatoon II. My brother pulled her leg off and then her hair fell off. After that, I renamed my Raggedy Ann doll Saskatoon III.

2. What is the oldest item of clothing you still own?

I get rid of clothes a fairly regular basis, so I don't think I own anything particularly old. The oldest thing currently in my closet is probably my first proper theatre-going dress, which is only, maybe five years old. Unless you count the smocked dresses my grandmother made for me as a child, which are in the cedar chest.

3. Any plans and/or desires to pursue higher education beyond college?

I have many desires, but no plans. At the moment I'm taking an ASL course at the CHS Office and just trying to decide what the hell I want to do. It took me so long to finish high school, due to my illness, that I sometimes thought I'd never achieve it and now that I have, I just want to chillax for a bit. I'd like to do creative writing or theatre or languages.

4. If you could trade places with anyone, who would it be?

Uh...alive, probably...Sutton Foster, maybe. She has my sort of dream career.

Dead, some sort of Regency lady of leisure who embroidered all day and went to balls and was courted by handsome young men of means.

5. Do you have a favorite drink? (alcoholic or non)

My favourite drink is chai tea from Shopper's Drug Mart's organic line of food.

replace "embroider" with "embroider fic" and its you, yes? ;)
(kidding)

seriously - Resistance Is Futile, but that won't stop Harry from trying.

OMG, sorry! I totally forgot to ask you questions. I'm a bad person. L'anyways:

1. Do you speak any other languages besides English? If not (or even if yes) what languages do you wish you spoke?

2. What's the one pop culture phenomenon you can just not fathom at all?

3. You're stuck on a desert island with one celebrity, dead or alive, who do you wish it was?

4. The current show(s) you can't bear to miss an episode of?

5. What was your favourite kiddie show when you were little?

you are not a bad person. ever!

>1. Do you speak any other languages besides English? If not (or even if yes) what languages do you wish you spoke?
1. I speak varying levels of US- and UK-English*, moderate amounts of Turkish (the Republic, none of the other Turkic states), and a smattering of Yiddish and Spanish.

* = I can reply to a person with the same rhythym and accent if they use a full sentance - like at the Irish-theme restaurant the other day, one waitress had an Irish accent, the other had a deep Deep South accent...and I didn't realize I was using their accent until I was in the middle of replying - Irish accent to the Irish girl, Southern accent to the Southern girl.


>2. What's the one pop culture phenomenon you can just not fathom at all?
2. Does "real person fic" count as pop culture phenomenon?

(I mean I can understand if someone's writing historical fiction - something about Salah Al Din or Gaius Julius Caesar, for example - or fanfic in a historically-themed show/movie)

>3. You're stuck on a desert island with one celebrity, dead or alive, who do you wish it was?
3. Anyone interesting enough for me to want to be stranded with, I wouldn't know what to say.

>4. The current show(s) you can't bear to miss an episode of?
4. It's hard to say - most of my currently-on-air shows are as much habit as anything else (if Lie to Me is on, I know its Monday)...and Lie to Me (and Nova ScienceNow) are the things I'd set my DVR to tape if I'm leaving.

>5. What was your favourite kiddie show when you were little?
5. I'm going to have to ask my parents about that one.

I am jealous of you having a cedar chest. Also, your Regency lady is basically my "trade places with anyone" pick, too. Except I'd like to be Jane Austen. Forever and ever and ever.

Resistence is futile! You will be caffinated sorry, bad inside joke.

Eek! Sorry, I forgot to ask you questions. I don't know you terribly well, so I'm going to go with bookish things, mostly. Because, I'm guessing you like books.

1. They are making a movie of your life: who they cast to play you and what's it subtitled? (i.e Bookblather: The Story of a Girl and her Monkey)

2. What book would you give as a present to a young niece or nephew/misc. child relative?

3. Most romantic scene in a book or movie?

4. If you could throw any character from one medium of storytelling into other, who would it be and why?

5. Do you name inanimate objects? (i.e your computer, your car, etc.) If so, give some examples. :-)

psst, I'm tigerkat24 in disguise. This is my oh yeah I have to be professional occasionally journal. :D

1) I sort of like your subtitle, I gotta say. But really, it would probably be "The Girl Who Read Too Much." And I have a not-so-secret desire to be played by Anne Hathaway.

2) Fantastic Mr. Fox, Roald Dahl. It's one of my absolute childhood favorites, it's appropriate for any age group, you can read it very fast, and it's sort of amazingly perfect.

3) Oh, jeez. I'm kind of enamored of the letter scene in Persuasion, but there's a lot of very good ones in Shards of Honor (I like the one at the very end especially), and chapter 35 in Turn Coat, and Beatrice and Benedick, "I will live in thine arms," that scene, then there's the "No, no, I'm not giving her to you, I'm giving you to her" scene in Curse of Chalion... but I think in the end I'm going to have to go with Persuasion.

4) Mm, you mean like a TV character into a book or vice versa? I sort of really want Cordelia Vorkosigan to meet Laura Roslin. They'd be BFFs for ever and everyone around them would be properly terrified.

5) Why yes. Yes I do. My computer is Basil, my iPod is Bug, my teakettle is Glorious Provider of Liquid Joy, and my car is You Bitch.
