Friday Sort Of Post  
Since it's Friday, let's play the 'ask me a question' game again. And if you ask me a question, I'll ask you one in return -- if you want :) Any topic, but don't expect answers on anything too TMI or personal.

Okay! :) If you could have lunch with any five fictional characters, who would they be, and why? (Lunch is all you get with them! LOL.)
Ith: Callanishithildyn on July 21st, 2006 05:07 pm (UTC)
I have a question on the new member survey on my House list that asks what three historical figures would you have over for dinner.

Hmmm... Okay, this first one's a gimmee :) Methos.

Four more...
Sir Adam Sinclair (from Katherine Kurtz's Adept novels), Galadriel, Master Robinton of Pern, oh heck... this is harder than I thought. Oh, I know! Aeron Aoibhell from the Keltiad books by Patricia Kennealy.

(Lunch is all you get with them! LOL.)

Why, whatever do you mean?? [bats eyelashes demurely]

Good question! Now, do you want a question in return?

What inspires you to write crazy fix crossovers? I only ask because I do the same thing, so I'm always curious as to other writers' motivations.

What is the first thing you'd do if you actually met the REAL Methos?
Ith: Wolfithildyn on July 21st, 2006 08:10 pm (UTC)
I'd know who he was, all about him? Or meet him as Adam Pierson?

[stalling tactic whilst I think of an answer]

What would be your ideal day? :)
Ith: Eyesithildyn on July 21st, 2006 10:01 pm (UTC)
A day off where I didn't have to clean, or cook, or do anything at all.

A fantasy ideal day would be a cabin on the Oregon coast somewhere in the winter, watching a storm roll in while I sit in front of the fire with a book and a glass of wine, relaxing after a day of walking on the beach looking for agates.

Now, your question, should you choose to accept it...

What's your image of what you'll be doing, or where you'll be, in ten years?

She went that-a-way...jinxed_wood on July 22nd, 2006 12:32 am (UTC)
So there you are, minding your own while walking down the road, when suddenly a Dalek verrs around a corner screaming

EXTERMINATE, EXTERMINATE!



Um, so, what do you do?

P.S. Mea Culpa, these kind of memes bring out the inner twelve-year-old in me :-)
Ith: Ithildinithildyn on July 22nd, 2006 01:42 am (UTC)
Why, scream and wait for the Doctor to save me! [weg]

Now, for your question.... If you were going to give yourself a new first name, what would it be?

This seems such a silly question compared to many of the others, but it is something I am curious about. Why, in the "oddness meme," did you describe yourself as a spinster instead of just single?
Ith: Camelias & Titmouseithildyn on July 22nd, 2006 04:19 am (UTC)
Because spinster is a more accurate description IMHO. Once you pass a certain age and have never been married, and are childless, single doesn't quite cover it. Single seems like it may be temporary, while spinster indicates a more permanent state of affairs. And spinster is a good word in general :)

OK here goes (combining two loves Methos and Dr Who)

You are walking along a deserted beach with your long time partner Adam Pierson when the Tardis appears before you with the doctor (incarnation of your choice) offering to take you away with him. What do you do?
Ith: Absinthe Posterithildyn on July 22nd, 2006 06:59 pm (UTC)
I'm going to be boring and old fashioned :) If I ever had a life partner/spouse, whatever you want to call it, no matter who it was, running off with the Doctor wouldn't be a temptation. So I'd politly decline his offer :)

Good question!

Oh, forgot your question!

What one -- or two -- fictional characters could you see yourself dating, that you'd be compatible with?
