I was an idiot and I'm sorry

So, so, sorry. I never meant to hurt you- I hope you understand.

More Questions!

1. If you didn't have to work, what would you do with your time?

I would knit a lot, sew a lot, read a lot, sleep a lot. I'd spend lots of time with Jeremy (assuming he wasn't working, which isn't likely as he's a workaholic), and probably do some volunteer work.

2. If you could have all the pets you wanted, what would you have, and how many would there be?

I'm set for cats- 3 is plenty. I'd have one dog (ideally, an Irish wolfhound, Akita, or other large breed), and two goats named Killer and Frog. If Fiji Iguanas are ever in the pet trade, I want one. They're just gorgeous. Maybe a couple of geckos. So that's 3 cats, plus two lizards, plus 2 goats, a Fiji iguana, and 2 geckos. 10 pets. Unless I decided to get a horse.

3. What word do you hate the most and why?

I don't like the word "ratchet." It's got an unpleasant sound to it. I don't really hate words,
though. Sometimes I hate the ideas they express, but the words are just symbols.

4. What's the deal with buffalo meat?

It's yummy. It's more nutritious than beef and has a similar taste. However, since it's got less fat it cooks faster, which means you must pay close attention while cooking it. My coworker has a bison ranch and I buy from her. It plays well with pork in chili.

5. How did you and Jeremy meet?

At an SCA event, at the ball. We were drunk. My best friend Jen literally shoved me in front of him because she thought he was cute.

Five Questions

5 Questions From Delaney:
1. How do you feel about being a feminist in Kansas?
Alone, sometimes, and slightly crazy. But. I have hope! If the state was really so conservative, we wouldn't have so many abortion clinics operating. There's a small but active liberal community, and if I didn't have hope I'd go nuts.
2. What was your favorite SCA costume?
Hmm...either my red and blue particolored cotehartie or my red cotehartie and blue sideless surcote. Ask me again when I finish the fancy Elizabethan.
3. Do you find it frustrating to look much younger than your age? Do you see any advantage to it?
Yes and no. I'm used to it, really. And I'm told I'll appreciate it when I'm older.
4. How did you decide that you wanted to be ChildFree?
It was a process, really. I always thought (up until about 2 years ago) that I would have kids, because that's what grown-ups do. Then I started thinking about it, and realized that when I imagine myself at 65, there's no kids there. Children don't fit with what I want from life. I can't comprehend being legally responsible for another person for 18 years, and then being permanently connected to them forever and ever. Plus, what if the kid gets here and I don't like it? I'm not very patient and am easily annoyed. I like to borrow other people's kids, shake them up (figuratively) and give them back. I want to be the cool aunt.
5. Do you wish you had done anything different for your wedding?
Nope- it went off perfectly. However, if I could have known months ahead of time that it was going to be 82 degrees in March, we may have done it outside
