- If you could move one room in your house/apartment to another spot, which would you move, and why?
If I could move rooms for real, I'd probably be more willing to consider building my own house rather than buying one already in existence. I do have specific ideas about how things ought to be--i.e., I'm picky, as I've been told a thousand times in the last four months--and it would be nice to just start out as I want it all to be. Life doesn't seem to be working out that way, though.
- Would you live in space if you could never come back to earth?
never. I've zero interest in space, at all. I don't buy into the conspiracy-theorists' view that the entire space program is either (a) a colossal hoax, or (b) a complete waste of time, but neither do I want anything to do with it.
- What traditional stereotype would you classify yourself as?
I'm pretty nerdy, but not in the vein of the hipster-nerd-Big Bang-types that are seeming to take over the world lately. Neither do I follow in the footsteps of the girl-power crowd. I'm just a preppy-dressing, smart-mouthed, never quite satisfied observer.
- Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.

That's not quite how life turns out, of course.
I do still have a soft spot for vases, though, and am hard-pressed not to buy them in all shapes and sizes when I've got the chance.
[from the original source; the title quotation is by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, from The Little Prince, and reads in its entirety:
She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her... I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her....]
