1. This is a tough question for a person who is all too aware of how even the most minute changes in the past can affect the future. Given that I would want to affect the time-line the least, I'd probably choose to re-live my last year working at the vet where I used to work. There are things I'd do differently and in doing so I might have been able to save the life of my dear, sweet, still missed Evie Bean, one of the best cats I ever had. But to be honest, there are a lot of places in my life where a different action would've made things better so it's pretty hard to choose one. Not to mention the after effects.
2. Languages. I would love to be able to speak more than English and the smattering of Spanish I still remember. I'd choose to be fluent in Spanish, French, Russian, and Chinese. Or I'll just take a download of the top 20 most spoken languages.
3. See above, lol
4. I'd split it between the Sierra Club, Animal Shelters, and the ACLU
5. see #1 and my worry for screwing up time
6. Again, there's that whole changing the past, but, if I could go with the guarantee of being unable to affect anything, I'd probably choose 1805. I like the clothes. What can I say? But. if there was no guarantee then I would choose to go into the future, maybe 200 years from now, see if we've gotten into space and what we've found.
7. That's easy: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, and John Turturo.
8. Steak, salad, Tiramisu, and a nice glass or two of Sancerre.
9. Oh, that's impossible to answer; I have too many favorite songs. But if there's one thing I can listen to over and over and not get sick of it might be Mozart's Requiem.
10. Introvert for sure. My days are filled with way too much peopling.
11. I'd love a nice glass of Sancerre as stated in #8 but I'd happily take a Squid mix :)
Much thanks to the Squid. Good questions!
Now it's your turn to answer one of the questions above...
