Acquired from ultraviolet9a1. Your favourite new fandom?
I haven't written anything for it, but I'm really enjoying Blue Bloods
. Great cast, solid writing, and Tom Selleck just keeps improving with age.
ETA: Wait, are we including reality TV? Because I'm totally hooked on Enough Already
with Peter Walsh (whom I've adored since his Clean Sweep
days). And last night, I watched The Unpoppables
, about a trio of balloon artists, and was enthralled, so I think that's also going to be must-see viewing.2. If you would be given lots of money, what changes would you do to your house?
Well, after fixing the roof, and the electricals, I'd get double-paned windows and do my best to sound-proof the place. I'd remodel the kitchen---complete with appliances, replace the sliding glass doors, get the garage overhauled, up to and including a new door, and security lights all around. And I'd go to town on the cosmetic stuff as well---paint it inside and out, install new flooring over the terrazzo, new light fixtures---the list goes on. Or, if it was enough money, I'd find a quiet little piece of land and build a new container house. In the long run, it might just be the better investment.3. I'm giving you a blanche carde to travel anywhere safely, with no regard for money (time travel not included). Where are you going?
Woohoo, see you later! I'm going to Disney World! I may as well start there, since it's right in my backyard, and I've never had the money to do more than day-trip. There are a lot of places in the US that I've always wanted to see, and some I'd like to revisit. Definitely a nice, long ramble around Europe. I'd love to see the ancient wonders of Egypt, go on safari in Kenya, wander through China and the rest of Asia before jaunting over to Australia. A quick hop to Hawaii, back to the States by way of California (I have LJ friends there!), ditto a quick detour up to Canada. I figure I'll be back sometime around 2014, but don't worry, I'll send postcards!4. Name a book/story that packed the tighest punch in the last pages/paragraphs.
I'm going with the first thing that came to mind, Moreta
by Anne McCaffrey. The last chapter or so of that book GETS me every time, and I've read it numerous times.5. I remember you have tattoos. Can you describe one and tell me why you chose it?
I can do better than that---look at my icon. I've got the lizard and dragonfly with tribal grasses and clouds on my right calf. There are lizards everywhere in Florida, and I've always loved watching them. Same with dragonflies. If I did get the hypothetical pot o' money, I'd have more: I want a seahorse and a sea turtle on my left calf, with some seaweed and a wave design for balance.
