Yeah, I know, it's been absolutely forever since I've made a post, and what I *should* do is update everyone on my life. But, I'm not in the mood. Suffice it to say I have a full-time job, a part-time job, and I'm taking classes on top of all that. In the meantime, I'm trying to have a social life, which includes the lovely userinfoJenny_Evergreen, who lives entirely too far away. Anyway, this meme is from her!


1. What reality show would you want to be on?

Hmmmm.... I suppose Queer Eye for the Straight Guy doesn't count... I'd probably pick How to Look Good Naked, or better yet, What Not to Wear. I pretty much know what I want my wardrobe to look like (they'd probably hate it!)... I just need the cash to go shopping. :)

2. Tell me the story of your first true love.

Hmmmmm.... there's the boy across the street I grew up with, who I was always infatuated with. At the time, of course, I thought that was my first true love. Not sure what I can say about that. We grew up together, played house together, I chased him on the playground, and he wanted nothing to do with me in that sense, even though we were the best of friends and did a lot of things together. I moved to South Carolina when I was 15, though.

In South Carolina, I met a guy who I thought was my true love. The usual high school stuff... my first date (The Breakfast Club), parking and making out in secluded spaces. Hanging out constantly... my place, his place, everywhere else. I assumed we'd be together forever, and was just coming to the conclusion that I was going to lose my virginity to him, right about the time he was coming to the conclusion he was gay. We remained best friends for several years thereafter.

Of course, then, my first REAL true love MUST have been my first husband, right? It started out as him following me around all the time, and ended up with a mercy fuck, and then things just went from there. I was head-over-heels, heart-and-soul. We shared everything our limited understandings and limiting fears allowed us to share... we were spiritually connected, played with magick (mostly him), and had an incredible sex life, which included our first forays into BDSM. In the end, though, our mutual damage and mutual ignorance drove us apart.

And, you already know the story of my first husband, and the person I think was my "real" true love all along. It seems my true loves keep getting truer all the time. :)

3. What is your post-apocalyptic career choice?

I'd still want to do something in the realm of healing. Maybe not a nurse, per se (although that would probably be the most needed), but certainly something where I'd go around and offer that sort of service, although probably more in the lines of energetic healing. If I'd finished (or at least gotten farther along) in the animal communication/shamanic healing, my focus would most certainly be there.

4. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

Perth, Australia. Now, granted, I say that because we went to an astrologer once to determine the most advantageous place to live... I specifically asked about a place that would be best for promoting spiritual growth, and she looked at the lines and pointed to Perth, and said, "Well, if that's not your spiritual center, I don't know what is!" userinfoBlckwngdOrcl has some pretty auspicious lines there, too. The caveat is, I've since discovered my birth time isn't what I thought it was, so I'm not 100% sure all those lines are still there, and I haven't been back to anyone to get it checked out. So, that might change.

5. If you got to name a planet, what would you call it?

A whole planet? Hmmmm..... I've always thought Tramontaine was a neat word, and wouldn't be entirely inappropriate for a planet (in an ironic sort of way), but it doesn't have that lovely musical quality that I'd like a name to have... My maternal grandmother's name was Thera, which I always thought was beautiful, and planned to name a daughter that, although I'm not likely to have one. That would be a good name for a planet, although it reminds me a bit too much of Etheria, from He-Man/She-Ra. Although, come to think of it, that's a damn good name for a planet. But, already taken, obviously. The more I think of it, the more I think it would depend on the planet. I'd name a gas giant something different than I would name a little rock planet like Mercury. I think planets, like pets, would end up primarily naming themselves. You can have some names in mind, but they'd still have to fit the planet when it's all said and done.

1. *laugh* I've thought the exact same thing!
2. My first true love was Eric. Two little nerds (1st to 4th grade) planning our nerdy little future together. Then I switched schools and that was pretty much that. I did love him, as much as a little girl could ever truly love someone. The next really true love was actually my best friend, Kathy, although I hid the fact from even myself until after the friendship had ended. In hindsight, it was pretty embarrassingly obvious.
3. Yeah, I kind of figured this was an obvious one for you, but just in case! :)
4. Oh, I remember you telling me that now! Yes, you'll have to see how it stands now!
5. I like Thera! But, yeah, you're right! It's all about the details. :)

My turn? :)

Hmmm....

1. I may have missed this in your LJ, but how did you become an auspice? Was there a single event that suddenly rocked your world about that, or some other thing?

2. What has been the best part about motherhood?

3. What has been the worst part about motherhood?

4. You have the opportunity to spend a [specified period of time, your choice... I'm thinking maybe a year] in the world of any novel/TV show/movie/etc.. What world would you choose, and why?

5. You and I have a week... no family, all expenses covered, not a responsibility or a want in the world. Where would we go, and what would we do? (Since my LJ is completely public, I'll understand if you prefer to answer this one via email.)
