A middle-of-the day squirrel: Q&A

1. Are you a young heart or an old soul?

A. I have been told by some that I am old soul.

2. What makes someone a best friend?

A. Empathy, good listening skills, and a desire to make the friend a part of your life. Bringing chocolate is good, too.

A. A blue bike I received when I was 5. Santa put a Batgirl doll on the seat.

4. Tell me a movie/song/TV show/playbook that has changed your life.

A. Xena: Warrior Princess. It was the first "fandom" I was ever involved with, and I made a lot of cyberfriends that I am still in touch with because of that show.

5. Name one physical feature that you like about yourself and one that you dislike.

A. Like: my smile. Dislike: everything else

6. Can money buy happiness?

A. No, but it sure helps pay the bills.

7. What’s more important in a relationship: physical attraction or emotional connection?

A. Emotional connection

8. Is there anyone close to you that you know you can’t trust?

A. Yes.
9. Where was your favorite place to go when you were a little kid?

A. Grandma's house.
10. Have you spent a night in the hospital?

A. Oh boy, have I ever.
11. Do you enjoy being only with 1-2 friends or with a large group of people?

A. Introvert all the way - 1-2 friends.

12. Have you ever been bullied?

A. Yes, and I've been sexually discriminated against, too.
13. If your partner wanted to wait until marriage until having sex, would you stay in that relationship?

A. I have been married for 30 years, I don't think this applies to me.
14. Do you believe in God?

A. Sometimes.
15. Out of all the social networks in the world why use a blog?

A. I like the freedom it gives me to write for however long and on whatever I want. It's my personal outlet.
16. What is your quirkiest habit?

A. I sing very loud when no one is home.

17. What is normal? Are you normal?

A. Normal is what the majority of any group deems it to be. I am not normal because I don't really belong to any single group. I live outside the lines.

18. Someone close to you is dying! You have the choice to let this person live for 10 more years but if you do you cause the death of 10 strangers.

A. Ah, one of those questions. Fortunately I am never in this position, and neither is anyone else.

19. What is one thing you could never forgive?

21. Who is your favorite super hero?

A. I have always had a tie between Batgirl, The Invisible Girl (Fantastic Four) and The Black Widow (Spiderman).

22. Could you be in a long distance relationship?

A. Sure. You didn't define relationship in the question, and isn't friendship a relationship? I have several long-distance friends. One lives in England. We correspond every day. Likely we will never meet. I don't think you can get more long distance than that.
23. Do you know what makes you happy?

A. I have a general idea.

24. Who was your first crush?

A. A boy named Jamie.

25. Where is your favorite place to go out and eat?

A. I'm a middle-of-the day squirrel.
