Questions1. Introvert or extrovert?
Bahaha, did I fool you?
Didn't think so. I'm much more of an introvert.
2. Do you like coffee?
Yes! I'll have two creams, no sugar, please. Or a mocha. Or an Iced Cappuccino from Tim Hortons, mixed with chocolate milk.
3. What are you reading right now?
Deb, you almost caught me at one of those rare times when I'm in between books and not reading anything. But this morning I started Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, so we're okay. (I don't know why, but I'm always surprised to find humor in those old classics.)
4. Favorite fairytale?
When I was little, it was always Cinderella. Later, Beauty and the Beast edged up beside it. Those are still two of my top favorites, but Sleeping Beauty is currently proving to be quite interesting too. *cough*
5. Favorite color?
Blue--anything in a turquoise/aqua shade makes me happy. And also green, especially a fresh spring green or olive green.
6. Favorite animal?
Do I have to settle on just one? Horses, big cats (as in lions, tigers, leopards, lynxes, cougars, etc.), hawks, DRAGONS (oh wait, did you mean real animals?), ferrets (just to look at, not to pet . . . they reek something awful), and basically any large, furry creature that looks either majestic or adorable.
7. Favorite food?
Deb. Honestly. You know how difficult such an open question is? Couldn't you have been more specific? Like favorite dessert or favorite meat or . . . you know. Gah. Okay. I have always loved my mom's cashew chicken. It's basically a stir-fry dish made of veggies, cashews, and chicken with homemade hoisin sauce.
8. Favorite TV show?
Um, I don't really watch TV. Because we don't really have cable. And quite frankly, I don't feel I'm missing out on a whole lot. But I have seen parts of some shows. If I'd watched more than two episodes, I'd shout "Once Upon a Time!" But I haven't fully formed my opinion on that yet. Let's go with Gilligan's Island, because I've seen both seasons, and despite the cheese and leaps in logic (WHO in the world brings suitcases full of stuff on a three-hour tour?!), it's quite funny.
9. Favorite historical time period?
Ooh, I love this question. I'd say the Renaissance, because it's somewhat cleaner than the Middle Ages, yet still has that lovely medieval quality. But I also like the 1800's. And I enjoyed learning about the two World Wars and the Civil War in American history. (Happy Independence Day to all my American friends, by the way!) Goodness, I can't even answer these questions properly. I don't have a single answer for any of them.
10. Favorite book character you met recently?
Hmm. Maybe the Outlaw, from Ted Dekker's Outlaw and Eyes Wide Open. Everything he said kind of shook up truths I'd taken for granted or gotten used to, and presented a whole new facet. Pieces of his dialogue have lodged themselves in my brain and started to work their way into my thinking. So the Outlaw is definitely a thought-provoking, heart-piercing character.
New QuestionsI'm throwing a couple of Deborah's in here because they were so fun.
