Very cool meme from timberwolfoz:

If you would be so kind, ask me the seven questions below. Just copy and paste them into a comment, replace the blanks with anything you want--personal, silly, surreal (e.g. 3. Donkeys or sandcastles and why?), or deep--and I'll answer honestly as I can! Then post this in your own LJ and see what kind of things people want to ask you!

1. What do you think of _____________ ?

2. When did you last ____________?

3. __________ or ___________ and why?

4. What did you ______________?

5. What's your favourite ______________?

6. How would you ______________?

1. What do you think of the claim that men can induce lactation? (I just read an article about male lactation, and my eyeballs leaped from my skull -- I always thought male nipples were vestigial!)

2. When did you last write your own poetry?

3. Narnia or Middle Earth and why?

4. What did you dream about last night?

5. What's your favourite architectural style?

6. How would you feel if one of your kids decided to move to Europe permanently?

7. Who would you most like to play you in your own biopic?

(Wow. I kind of suck at asking interesting questions, don't I? :p)

1. Men can indeed induce lactation (and so can women who have never had a child). They would never be able to produced enough milk to entirely support a baby's nutrition, but it can be done (with the help of herbs and/or meds and stimulation).

2. I honestly can't remember. Probably sometime in my twenties.

3. Middle-Earth. Even if I didn't adore the story utterly, the Narnia books are a tad too preachy for me (I've never seen the Narnia movie. You may slap me now).

4. I don't remember dreaming anything last night. Which is boring, since I have had some really vivid dreams recently.

5. To look at? Gothic Revival (aka Neogothic). There are grotesques and gargoyles!

To live in? New England Colonial (I used to live in a house virtually identical to the one on the bottom of the page).

6. Strangely enough, I'd be all for it. I'd miss them terribly, but they'd be doing something that meant a lot to them and I wouldn't even begin to try to talk them out of it. Hannah has talked about moving to Australia, and my answer has been pretty much "yay, go for it!" Not sure she will, though, and that's very okay, too. :)

7. Molly Parker.

I've never seen the Narnia movie. You may slap me now.

I actually asked that question purely because I happened to be watching The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe on TV at that very moment. I saw it in the theater when it came out and felt "meh" to "nah" about it, but watching it again tonight... well, let us just say that no slapping will be required, and I'll probably be skipping Prince Caspian this summer. (That said, I don't know how I would've answered this question. I think it would be almost a crapshoot for me... but Middle Earth would probably win by a foot-hair. *wink*)

Also, I am with you on the Gothic-Revival love. One day when I build my dream house, it will be an elision of Gothic and Tudor. Not Gothic Revival, though, even though I adore looking at that style -- there's just a little too much Victorian-gingerbread influence in the Revival for me. I prefer the pared-down Gothic Original Flavor (TM).

THERE IS NO SAM GAMGEE IN NARNIA. This alone settles the whole bloody problem.

I suppose this could be considered a little gingerbready, but gah. Gorgeous. And not in a Hansel-and-Gretel way. Also this, which doesn't look gingerbready at all (although I've never been inside, but I WILL, DAMMIT. SOMEDAY I WILL).

1. What do you think of that Krycek fic I wrote in my journal recently? *eyeballs you pointedly*

2. When did you last do something the majority of society would consider disgusting?

3. Blue ink or black ink and why?

4. What did you think you were doing that one time when you did that thing?

5. What's your favorite type of sword for general purpose slaughter, the Roman gladius or the medieval era Highland broadsword?

6. How would you define 'bad'?

7. Who would you most like to push you on a swing?

Also, if I might for a moment hijack your journal, I askbegplead everyone to go to this website and at the top of the right column, vote for "The gun smoked. So did Jack." The site is a literary agent's blog, and she posed a contest to come up with a six word story ala Hemingway's "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." She received a ton of entries, narrowed them down to her favorite twelve, and from those, her favorite six. I'm one of the six (which is a thrill in and of itself), and if I win, she'll critique the first five pages of my novel's manuscript. This would be a huge step forward in my quest to get my book published, so pleeeeeease vote me me.

And yes, it really is a thrill just to be nominated. :) Even though it's only six words, I'm taking it as total validation of my talent.

We now return to regularly scheduled programming already in progress.

1. Dude. I can't find it. Could you link to it, plz? I've searched and obviously missed a link because I suck at finding things like that.

2. Does not shaving my legs for months count? Because I don't do it in the winter. I don't find it personally disgusting, but other people might.

3. Black. I dunno why, really, I just like it better--it's less...ordinary? If you really want to make me happy, gimme green ink. :D

4. I thought I was going to get a picture and a poster framed. I didn't count on hitting the minivan.

5. The broadsword. For purposes of general anything. It's Scottish, and Things Scottish are superior (even their whiskey, which I don't like, but that's because I hate whiskey in general).

6. Anything that defies the Wiccan Rede and/or the Golden Rule (the Rede should be on this list because it fits the ethic, and is listed on other sites).

7. Right now? Jesus. I could use some solid support. :)

Also, voting accomplished. *crosses fingers*

3. Kirk or Picard and why?

4. What did you get for the best Christmas of your life?

5. What's your favourite icon?

6. How would you prove that love is stronger than hate?

7. Who would you most like to commemorate in a time capsule blasted into space as evidence of human greatness if the earth were destroyed?

1. Go out to dinner all by myself with a good book.

2. I doodle all the time, so probably a few hours ago.

3. I guess I can't pick both? I'll have to say Picard, then, because he's less headstrong. Not that being headstrong is a bad idea. So I guess I'm back to picking both.

4. For one reallygood Christmas I got the album in my icon. For another I got the whole set of Gramma dolls, complete with the sheet set and dinnerware. That was probably the best present, if not the Best. Christmas. Ever.

5. My default. It's my oldest daughter back when she was about ten. We raised the butterfly she's releasing from an egg.

6. I guess because the human race continues. If hate was stronger, we'd either all be dead or half of us would be enslaved.

7. Helen Keller.
