1. If I were cooking dinner for you, what would you want it to be?
I don't know. What do you cook well? There's nothing I love so much that people can't ruin it. (Roo: "People broke it." See how useful this is?) There are very few things I hate so much that the optimal chef can't make them worth my time.
2. Is there a book you didn't like, but you reread it anyway and liked it the second time around?
No. I don't reread books I hate, and when I do, I'm always sorry. Sometimes there are books I felt neutral about and liked better later, but the most common one is that books I love get better with more reads.
3. Exactly how near to the end of the world would it have to be for you to move back to California?
Very, very far. California: not the place to be in case of Ragnarok! Honestly! Bits of it are likely to just go wandering off into the ocean! And if by chance civilization collapses, there you are in California. No, nonononono. If the end of the world happens here, we will have our nutjob friends to build batteries and cut wood and garden and preserve the knowledge of western civilization with.
I think "the twelfth of never" is a pretty accurate answer here.
4. If you had to choose between an outfit that was pastel but otherwise good-in-your-eyes, and an outfit that was cutesy but not pastel, which would you choose?
Going naked. Well, okay, probably not, no matter how often I threaten it. But seriously, why do you think I have so many plain black garments? Because they sell plain black almost all the time. And so I almost never have to buy any one thing, so I can neatly avoid evils of this nature.
That said, there are some people who would probably describe the shirt I'm wearing today as pastel blue. I think it's light but non-pastel blue. Mileage. Varying. Etc.
5. If this weren't a 5-question meme, but 6 or 7 or 8 or... at what number would it become Too Much Work?
To answer? Never, really; I'd just do it in shifts and let some of the questions drift and others get answered. To ask? Six, I think. I have a hard enough time with five, because with people I don't know, well, I don't know them, and with people I know, most of my questions are of the, "Oh, hey, tell me about the...wait, never mind, I'll e-mail you, or we can talk about it in person" variety.
