Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.


This time from serena_b:


1. If you could live anywhere in the world (assuming expenses weren't a factor), where would it be and why?

As the things that made this country different and therefore better than all the others are being ripped away from us, I figure, may as well live in Europe. I love London, and that would be my first pick, but D would pick Germany, and I could certainly settle for that. Yes, if I’m going to have to live under socialism and lose my independence, then I at least want pretty European scenery to look at and an actual rail service to get me around. And sometimes I think Switzerland, too. I could get down with some Switzerland. Mmm, chocolate….

2. What is your favorite TV show of all time.

Mystery Science Theater 3000. It so appeals to my personality, my humor, my pop-culture love, my talk-back-to-the-tv tendencies that I’m jealous I didn’t think of it myself, but I’m glad someone did. Midwest represent!

3. What would be the one memory that you'd never want to lose?

My wedding day? Is that cheesy? They say the wedding should never be the most important day of your life, because it’s the marriage that matters, the every day that comes after, and that’s certainly true. But without the wedding, there’d be no marriage, would there? I love being married. As someone who never had any interest in ever getting married until she met that one person, it’s so weird to hear myself say that. I think if I hadn’t met D, I probably would have gone on being the isolated loner that I otherwise am. That we’re both a couple of misanthropes probably helps.

4. What's your dream job?

Something where I don’t have to interact with people. People suck. Other than that, what I’ve been applying for are part-time library jobs. I think I’d really like that, and wish I’d double-majored in English, or at least minored in it, because while I think a Business major is the thing that will suit anyone well, I haven’t actually used my degree for what I thought I would, because I realized too late that my personality type really didn’t fit with the whole management thing, because, you know, people. But being surrounded by books, real books, holding on to this last bit of physicality that technology is trying to destroy by not allowing us to have actual physical possession of anything anymore… man, sometimes I think I’m a lady Rupert Giles, minus the Watcher and badass dark arts past.

5. What's your absolute favorite food/dish?

I could eat pasta every day. I really could. If I had to choose my last meal, I’d choose such-and-such thing from so-and-so restaurant and whatever (hello, Geneva lake perch with saffron butter), but for what I eat most often, it would be pasta. With lots and lots of cheese.

6. What do you like best about where you live?

The mild winters. I hate the summers, but the mild winters almost make up for them.

We also have some awesome restaurants, and as I love eating and good food, that’s a plus. I bitch about the fact that we don’t have a proper art house cinema or transportation to anywhere and that we have to go to other states to see concerts sometimes, but you will find some excellent food here.

7. If you only had one book to read for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Oh gosh, this is where I’m supposed to say the Bible, isn’t it? And I know I should, but…. How about the dictionary? That way you’d get every word.

Switzerland is very nice. I recommend their wine country, around that lake, I think in Bern? Very nice in the Summer.

Geneva is kind of overrated. The UN is there. Interlaken is too touristy. By the way I'm ignoring spelling.

Basel is a cool city; part Swiss, part French, part German. But the Rhine (which I recall is the river that runs through it) lacks the scenery.

If you lived in Southern Switzerland you'd almost be in Italy, the home of pasta.

I liked Geneva.

Well, nobody's perfect.

That's nice. I should give the City another chance.

Eh, just putting it out there. It was one of my favorite places. Not everyone has to like it.
