1) What email server is your favourite? (You know, Gmail, Yahoo, ect.)
Um.....Windstream, I guess? That's what my family uses, and I'm really not familiar with any other servers.
2) Which place in your own country do you most long to visit?
The Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island, Michigan, the site of Somewhere in Time. Also I would love to visit Colonial Williamsburg again, even though I've been there twice, because now it seems like a second home to me, and I've made some friends there I should be very pleased to see again. Plus, it's like stepping back in time into a little colonial village, and it doesn't get much better than that. :)
3) Who was the last person you emailed?
Well, I don't really email a great deal....I mostly send letters instead, for old time's sake, and just because it's so much more personal and quaint. Plus, I am not unreasonably proud of my handwriting....*wink*. Heh. Seriously, I hardly email at all. I emailed an image to Miss Dashwood at Sink Me! yesterday, so that would be the last person I emailed.
4) Who was the last person you talked on the phone with?
Heh. Well, I have a rather irrational fear of phones- that is, I answer the phone, but I feel extremely uncomfortable calling people- so I usually don't talk one the phone unless I absolutely HAVE to, which is not often. Last night at around nine thirty I received a very cordial recoded message from a very cheerful and overly enthusiastic Nature's Sunshine agent, who told me to have a "sunshine day", even though it was nighttime. After he had finished his lengthy presentation- with me laughing all the while- I gave him a polite "Yee-haw!" and hung up. So I suppose he was the last person I talked to on the phone. :P
Oh, and I have a funny story about talking on the phone! When my sisters and I answer the phone, we're supposed to identify ourselves so that whoever's calling doesn't think they're talking to our mother- for example, "hello, this is Emma." My sister Sadie, however, doesn't like to say "hello, this is Sadie" because she says she trips over all the S's, and so for a while she would answer with MY name instead- and the funny part was that people would think she was me! Once our cousin called and she answered and he thought it was me for a long time, and then he said, "You know, you sound a lot like Sadie on the phone." It was so funny!
5) What is your favourite candy, chocolate excluded?
If fudge counts, then there you are. If it doesn't, I would probably say maple sugar candy. I've never really been much swayed by candy, especially hard candy, but I do really like homemade candy and maple sugar is kind of homemade. Sort of. :P
6) Within the next...oh, say, six months, what are you looking forward to the most? (As in, general life event.)
My annual dance recital is coming up in June, and I'm quite excited for that because I have a legitimate solo for the first time ever! :) My class is performing Pas de Quatre, which looks like this:
|I'm dancing the part of the dancer who's turned away from the audience.|
As lame as this may sound, I'm also looking forward to being finished with school soon...but in the next six months? Hmmm. I suppose I'm just looking forward to summer and all the excitement it brings for my family (we own a farm market :) and watching movies with Sadie (like East of Eden, come July.....) and just making the most of life!
7) Hardcover or softcover books?
Hardcover, I suppose, although it really doesn't make much of a difference as long as it's in reasonably good shape. Also, it really depends on the book. ;P
What's your favourite quote about....
8) Friendship: "My friends are my estate." -Emily Dickinson
9) Music: "Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent." -Victor Hugo
10) Books: "The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel must be intolerably stupid." -Jane Austen
11) So, you're standing in a group of three people (this includes you) where one person is a friend-ish acquaintance and the other person you don't know so well. You're not really adding that much to the conversation, but then the person you don't know so well criticizes one of your favourite books/movies/ characters, ect. What do you do? Scowl and shut up, jump into defence, or other?
Jump into defence!!!!!! Well, actually I would probably launch into a debate with the other person about the matter on which we disagreed, because they may have a point. I've been known to do it before.:)
Well, that was fun! Thank you, Melody! And since I am now commissioned to tag eleven other people, I hereby tag....
