so I succumbed to temptation after stellaluna_
did...Don't think I need to explain it since everyone done this long before I finally did (though I think I may have done a variation on skinglist
.1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favourite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.
And I promise: I will not ask anyone anything that's too personal.
I got five questions from stellaluna_
...1. You've done an amazing amount of traveling, which I really admire. What places that you haven't visited yet are ones you absolutely want to go to at some point in your lifetime?
Hmmm. Most of this comes from the stops that were supposed to happen if the trip went the way it was supposed to
. Out of all that, I only made it to the Australian sites (plus a few in Europe) so the remaining must sees are:
Cape Town, South Africa - it's supposed to be gorgeous
St. Petersburg - yep still have a fascination with Russian history
Galapagos Islands - I love animals, and the scenery is supposed to be amazing
Middle East - probably not specific enough but I'm reading "Walking the Bible" and am utterly fascinated by the history of the region.
Antarctica is on the list because it's a continent I haven't been to, but I don't have a good reason for wanting to go.2. What were your favorite games when you were little?
Ooh, I like this question. Let's see:
Outdoors: Hopscotch and jump rope definitely. I can still probably sing most of the jump rope songs. Also Duck, Duck Goose, Mother May I, Red Light, Green Light, Running Bases and Hide and Go Seek.
Indoors: Cabbage Patch Kids, School... Can't really think of too many others.3. What's a good way to spend a hot summer day when you have nothing in particular that you have to get done?
Depends if there's a breeze. If there is, probably at the beach. If there isn't, draped in front of an AC or other cooling source and reading.4. What are your favorite moments/scenes of Mac/Stella interaction on CSI:NY?
Officer Blue: I like the real adult fight. They got the issues out in the air and settled them. No petty sniping. Same with another s1 ep whose name I can't think of at the moment.
Another s1 scene (CBS' guide is down) where she meets him in the coffee shop to talk about the case--him explaining why he wnted to look at the evidence again. This time, he could make a difference.
All Access: not exactly their interaction but how they handled it. She needed him to go through her apartment because she trusts him the most. Also the end was beautiful.
The ep this season following her exposure. I loved the hug when she told him *and* the scene in his office where she talked to him about the test and ordering the kit.5. Tell me about some of your all-time favorite TV shows.
Favourite doesn't have to mean good, right ;) I think mine are:
Sisters - I don't know how I got into it, but I fell in love with the stories of Georgie, Teddy, Frankie, Alex and later Charley (and of course sexy Falconer). I wrote Sisters!Fic before I knew what fic was.
Melrose Place - a soap, but one with a fun cast. I remember my coworkers at the job I worked my senior year in high school watched this and I felt like a grown up. Now mousie962
and I enjoy looking back on the fun.
ER - I started watching initially because of George Clooney and didn't last. Went back to it my junior year in college when everyone was watching and got sucked back in. This was my first exposure online to fic. Doug and Carol were magic.
SVU - fell in love by accident with the cult episode even though I'd seen it on and off before. Back in s6, Elliot and Olivia had some M/S like interaction and I loved it. Fell hard for fic here too but don't enjoy SVU as much as I used to anymore. It's lost its magic.
and of course you know about NY :)
That was fun, any other takers? :)
It's way too hot and sticky today.
