So, yesterday I posted a call for questions, and despite a somewhat bizarre obsession about my Jesus in Space novel, I got some pretty good ones from you all.
Before I go any further, let me answer all of those questions about said novel: This Jesus in Space novel is the product of ridiculous hours in front of a keyboard during last November's NaNoWriMo campaign. Jesus and his disciples blast off into space, and hilarity ensues. It's best if you don't ask.
As far as reading it is concerned: No one is reading thatn ovel until I do, and it's my goal this month to start reading it. That would require I print it. I have not printed it yet and I have no money to buy ink or to get it printed at this moment, but I get paid on Friday, so we shall see. If I read it and it's not absolutely horrid after my few months away, I'll let you know.
Anywho, enough about that. Moving on.
1. What Scripture do you want read at your wedding?
Wow. Honestly, I've never given it much thought. I can tell you what I don't want read at my wedding. I don't want "and the greatest of these is love" or "a cord of three strands." I want something that hasn't been made cliche by thousands of wedding readings. Maybe something out of Song of Solomon...I don't know. That's a good question that I'll have to give more thought to when I have a bible in front of me.
1) What's the place you've always wanted to visit but haven't been able to due to time/money/political climate?
London. I have this dream of going to London. I don't really know what I'd like to see, but I just want to go. It has this romatic mystique to it (in my head) and I'd love to spend some time there listening to people talk. My second choice would be Sydney, Australia. Again, I could sit and listen to people talking all day long, but I'd love to see the Sydney Opera House from some other angle than the one you always see.
1. If you could meet a character from fiction, who would it be and why?
I would love to meet Harriet, from Harriet the Spy. Better yet, Ole Golly from Harriet the Spy. They're just some great characters that I think it would be wonderful to spend some time with. I'm sure Harriet would think I was boring or would write something cutting and true about me in her notebook. Second choice? Maybe the Good Magician Humphrey from Piers Anthony's Xanth series. It always seems that strange and wonderful things happen to people who meet him. I'd be interested to see what my three challenges to get into his castle would be.
1) What annoyed you most when working in retail?
Most? I guess that mean I have to pick just one thing. I wish I could say that was a hard thing to do, but really, I know exactly what annoyed me most: people who pretended I wasn't there. I'd say hello; they wouldn't respond. I'd tell them to have a nice day; they would grab their groceries and leave. I just wanted to smack them and say, "If you want to treat me like I'm not even here, why don't I just leave and then YOU can figure out how to run this damn register!" Second choice? People who got mad at me for the prices. Because everyone but my paycheck knows I control the store.
So, there you have it, folks. Answers to life's most pressing questions. If any more come in, I'll add to this post. If not, there you go! Be careful in all this snow we're getting, and if you're not getting any snow, lucky you!
