Comment and ask me three questions, any three questions at all, and I'll answer. You can be anonymous if you'd prefer. Post the same in your journal, and then answer the questions people ask you.

1. Hmm... I could take a cheap shot at Bush here, but I think, actually that western society's biggest downfall is also its biggest asset: the Internet. It makes all kinds of information available to all kinds of people, yet it discourages us from valuing books and libraries and the preservation of old knowledge in favor of the new. It also blurs the line between "good" and "bad" information -- there is a lot of great stuff on the internet, and a lot of crap out there too.

2. A short-lived relationship that leaves me wondering "what if?" There's something wonderfully dramatic and poetic and bittersweet about it. Plus, I like to gush. I don't think I could stand having one day with the man of my dreams and not be able to talk about it. I'd implode or something.

3. I actually googled this question and found that there are several websites discussing this that are far more profound than I can be on the matter... they seem to have actually done research into the answer. ;-) My personal opinion is that a woodchuck would chuck as much wood as a woodchuck would until that woodchuck couldn't chuck wood. (You know due to jaw spasms, teeth falling out, stuff like that).

1) What is your absolute favorite pair of shoes you own?
2) In your opinion, what is the prettiest flower, and why?
3) Why, oh why, can't you live in the Northwest? ;-)

1. My absolute favorite pair of shoes... do I really have to pick? Probably my dancesneakers -- practical and comfy. Otherwise my black mini-stilleto boots, which I have to take to a shoemaker to get repaired.

2. The prettiest flower... I don't think there is necessarily a "prettiest" flower. However. My favorites are champagne roses and calla lilies. Champagne roses because they are the most beautiful shade of pale pink, one that is not too pink and not too peach, and calla lilies because they have this incredibly elegant shape -- clean lines and form. Plus they fit with the sort of asian kick I've been on lately.

3. I'm perfectly capable of living in the Northwest... I just happen to like sunlight and cities with lots of personality. So New York or San Francisco it is for me.

You know, lack of sun is a common misconception of the Northwest. Did you know that it rains less in Seattle than in New York, Washington DC, Chicago, or Philly?

Oh, and I said ONE pair of shoes...that was two. ;-)

PS - I have that song too!

Thank you for pointing that out about Seattle! It was the least rainy city I've ever lived in. :)

(1) What three historical figures would you like to have dinner with?
(2) What is a not-so-well-known fear of yours?
(3) If all your books were destroyed or stolen, what ten books would you start replenishing your collection with?

1. At the same time, or separately? I guess Leonardo Da Vinci, Jesus, and William Shakepseare. But probably not at the same time.

2. Intimacy.

3. The Bible, The Complete Works of Shakespeare, my Fundamentals of Neuroscience Textbook (comes in verrrry handy often), The complete prose plays of Ibsen... I really don't know beyond that... or at least, not well enough to come up with any kind of profound answer at this time. I know I'd start with the Bible, and I guess I'd work from there.
