are invited to spend a night, alone, in a large house that is believed
to be haunted. A close friend of yours whom you trust tells you of his
or her own experience, and you have sufficient reason to believe that
there may be a genuine haunting going on there. Without promise of any
kind of reward for staying the night, would you agree to do so?
No. If ghosts can't work in the daytime I am not interested. I need my sleep.
2. What do you most enjoy about your job?
Since it's Sunday and I'm working, when I'm not doing the SIX, not much is enjoyable right now. All right, I get to meet lots of young guys. And I make them call me Mrs. Linklater.
3. Who was the last person you had a conversation with? What was the main topic of the conversation?
Aunt Genie this morning. Cousin Marvin died. He was eighty something and missing the ring finger on his left hand because his wedding ring got caught in some machinery and tore it off -- something I don't have to worry about. Anyway, he was found dead in his farm house a couple of days ago. That will teach you to ask about my personal phone calls.
aunt is making a list of things to bequeath to each of her
grandnieces and nephews. Did I want one of my great grandmother's
handmade quilts? Yes. I'd love something to remind me of a woman whose
favorite saying was "Go tell my ass, my head's gone a huckleberrying."
4. Take this quiz [link at Patrick's Place]: What kind of "smart" are you?
Apparently I'm Naturally Smart,as opposed to unnaturally smart, or just a smartass.
You're a naturally smart person. Your intelligence comes to you naturally, rather than from instruction OR MIND ALTERING DRUGS - and you are better with applied or more real-world things... which comes in handy, here in the real world.
0% applied intelligence -- ZERO? Where's that other 40% and what the heck is applied intelligence?
60% natural intelligence -- is that all I have? What's the rest, feathers?
5. What was the last food that you totally ruined -- to the point that it was inedible -- when trying to cook?
I don't recall ever messing up food to the point it couldn't be eaten. But my children may have a different answer. "That's not burned. Just pretend we're having S'mores and it's a marshmallow." These days I don't cook, I re-heat. Only on special occasions do I bake. Usually I just make reservations, so cooking problems are few and far between.
6. STRANGELY-OBSCURE QUESTION #1: If you had to do over again, would you change anything?
How much time do you have? I would completely re-live my life. As a different person.
