1. Leave me a comment saying "Interview me". (If you want to, of course! No pressure at all.)
2. I'll respond by asking you five questions of a very intimate and creepily personal nature (or not so creepy/personal).
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, ask them five questions.
I stole this meme from kalquessa, whose questions I shall now answer:
1. Name a talent that you wish you had.
I wish I could understand higher levels of mathematics. No, I'm serious. My brain just doesn't work that way, and I wish it did--I love physics, the intricate patterns that make up our universe, and I sometimes just long for the ability to work in the language of those patterns. That means math. *sigh*
2. Any childhood nicknames we should know about?
That questions was very well-phrased to allow me to duck out of answering. ;-) Actually, though, I didn't really have nicknames when I was a kid. Not that I recall, anyway, aside from Bookworm. One of my brothers occasionally called me "Sahara." And when I was in junior high my two best friends were also named Sarah, so we were often called "One, Two, and Three." I was in the middle age-wise, so "Sarah Two."
3. Can you name a favorite Stargate episode?
I once listed my favorite 24 Stargate episodes; does that count? Let's see.... If I had to pick ONE, it would probably be "First Ones." (Though as I type, I realize that was a kind of Carter-lite episode, and now I want to say "Red Sky" or some-such team-centric episode instead, but I'll just shut up.)
4. How about a favorite poem?
Oh dear. I don't read enough poetry, but I think I *can* answer this. :-) Pied Beauty, by Gerard Manley Hopkins.
5. You're marooned on a desert island. Choose someone from among your friends and family to be marooned with you and explain your choice.
My friend Abigail lives in my hometown; I think I'd pick her. We get along well, we even fight civilly; we both love books and stories (there won't be a boring moment); we're both devoutly Christian; and unlike many of my friends, or even myself, she regularly goes hunting and camping, and would be a good person to have when trying to survive without the supplies and amenities of civilization. (Okay, I have not wanted to write a "marooned on an island" story since junior high, but right now I'm kind of inspired. I love survival tales.)
