Here's how it works:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
elorie asked me the following questions:
1) If you could run a town, and assuming that people would go along with your schemes, how would you do it?
An interesting question. Considering that you say people would go along with it, then I would probably run it as a benevolent dictator. ;) I would hope that I would run it with compassion and integrity. Actually I think I would like to have a council of both pre-selected and democratically elected representatives who would debate and decide on issues, with me making the final decision based on their input.
2) What's your favorite flower, and why?
I love brugmansias (Angel's Trumpets) because not only are they related to the very Witchy datura (Devil's Trumpets) but they have this amazing fragrance that only is present at night. That plus we used some from our garden in lieu of incense at Chas' Feri initiation so now that association is forever drilled into my fetch. Mmmmm... very sexy aroma. Intoxicating, in fact.
3) What's your weirdest skill? I don't mean witchy skills, everybody we know has those, unless it's REALLY strange. I mean like the ability to play "God Save the Queen" on water glasses or something.
I do a mean Harvey Fierstein impersonation. ;)
4) What's your street skill? That is, if you got stranded far away without access to bank accounts or Western Union, how would you earn the money to get a bus ticket home?
I don't think I have much in the way of street skills... barring washing dishes or reading tarot on the corner, I'd probably have to resort to prostitution. So I might be workin' it for quite awhile before I got enough for that ticket. ;)
5) Who is your favorite historical person?
Well, that really depends on the day (I'm very Pisces) but right now I would have to say Oscar Wilde, not only because of the flair and courage by which he lived his life, but because he brought to light the prejudice faced by openly homosexual men at the time.
