Five Questions Meme

1. Leave me a casual comment of no particular significance, like a lyric to your current favorite song, or your favorite kind of sandwich, maybe your favorite game. Any remark, meaningless or not.
2. I will respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in your own post.
5. When others respond with a desultory comment, you will ask them five questions.

My answers to joan_arkham's questions are under the cut...

1. Do you remember the first time we met?

Aww, jeez, I'm so bad at this! I haven't got much of a linear memory. But I think it might have been at Cambodia. Or was it DCAC?

2. How does your garden grow?

Coupla weeks ago when we had a bit of rain, everything exploded and looked lovely. Now? Lush and verdant as a desert. It's funny how quickly thinks get brown and stops producing much when things it's so hot and dry. And I water pretty much daily!

I got some pictures when things were at their peak. I'll try to post those soon.

3. What one herb/spice could you not live without?

One??? I have a fairly long list of herbs and spices I can't live without (which is why I grow many, and save the seeds in the event of an apocalypse) but if I must choose one, I will go with red pepper, because a good red pepper imparts both flavor and heat.

4. What is your favorite cheese?

You ask tough questions. I don't believe I've ever met a cheese I didn't like. It's the Wisconsin genes. I think I'll go with that cave-aged gouda that I get at Whole Foods. It's nutty and slightly musky, and is the absolutely the food of the gods!

5. What would your hair look like if you didn't have to worry about a day job?

I'd find someone who would cut it close enough on the sides without butchering the front, and then I would dye it, from roots to tips, with Vampire Red, then Flame, then Mandarin. Deb did that for me once, and it actually looked like fire! It made me so happy.

And the houses laid out like targets
With the deafening sound we watched them all go down
And the families, now useless bodies
They lay still black and blue, a gift from us to you

Believe, you want this
Believed, I want this too

Why won't you tell me that it's almost over?
Why must this tear my head inside out?

Not really the type of question you're looking for, actually, but are you planning to see Stardust opening weekend?

Jebus, hon, considering the effort of stitching together a living these days (not to mention living in a falling-down crap shack, caring for ailing cats, attending to god-children and staying on top of health issues) E and I are entirely out of the loop. I had barely even heard about Stardust until very recently.

Sigh. I don't know when we'll get to see it. Enjoy it for us, OK? Hugs to J, and take good care.
