Day 5: My favorite Quote:
"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."
Friedrich Nietzsche


I love Nietzsche. But people DO think you're odd when you lounge out on the lawn in a Davis summer, and read his complete (translated) works for fun...

Day 4: My favorite book:

My favorite book is Watership Down, by Richard Adams.I've probably read it over twenty times, starting when I was 11 years old till now, and I always find new treasures in it.

My favorite series of books was also one that I found when I was young. And that is The Named books, starting with Ratha's Creature by Clare Bell. I spent years scouring used book stores as a teen looking for the then-out-of-print copies of this series and managed to find some hardbound editions. Then, when the books were re-printed recently (and a new book released! Squee!) I bought them all again in the new paperbacks.

I also own several copies of Watership Down, so I suppose that's how you can tell I cherish these books?

More recent favorites are the White Magic series (the first book being The Mountain's Call) by Judith Tarr (under pseudonym Caitlin Brennan). For those of you that like horses, romance, and excellent fantasy writing I would highly recommend this series!

Day 2: My favorite movie:
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron


I say it's my favorite because it's one of the few movies I can watch over and over and still enjoy. I know it's not TOTALLY accurate with how horses work and all, but I think they did a very good job considering the other trash cartoons out there. My other favorites are: Watership Down (favorite movie when I was a child), Avatar, Snatch, Pan's Labyrinth, The Usual Suspects, Hackers, Wall E, and 28 Days Later.

You better believe I'm doing this! Even if my vacation isn't 30 days long... (taken from [livejournal.com profile] cobaltblue).

Each day I'll post the item from that day.

Day 1: My favorite song:

This really does change depending on my mood.
Today it's Storm Large's cover of the Pixie's "Where Is My Mind":



It's a fitting song for my finals-brain, which is rather mushy and disjointed.

[livejournal.com profile] z111 gave me 5 questions.

Leave me a comment saying "I'll bite" and I'll do the same for you.
Pass it on to your own journal (post the questions and answer them).

1) Vampire or werewolf? Why?
It all depends on what kind of werewolf/vampire we are talking about - modern or traditional western depictions? Eastern or North American mythologies? If it was a traditional western scheme, where the werewolf turns into an out-of-control beastie (not just a wolf) at the full moon, THAT would be unappealing. Whatever the case, I would want to be in my right mind even if I had the compulsions to kill people or suck blood or whatever. So in the traditional western view, I'd rather be a vampire. I'd do well with the whole living at night, drinking human blood stuff, as I'm already attracted to the night and have a tendency to be a biter anyway.
If I was a vampire I would probably seek out and prey on particular people too (rapists, for example).

But if being a werewolf meant transforming into a wolf whenever I pleased (even if compelled during the full moon) as the more modern view tends to go, I'd pick that. It would mean I could forsake my humanity all that much easier, which would be... wonderful. I'd probably just stay a wolf and run with the pack. Maybe I'd keep a cabin in the woods for those times I needed to be human. I could also probably exist quite happily in the life I am striving towards right now (land, horse farm next to wilderness area, working/commuting into Portland) as that kind of werewolf.

2) How do you feel about sheath cleaning?
I'm actually quite good at it! I always had the job of sheath cleaning when I was a counselor's assistant at a ranch summer camp - which was incredibly embarrassing for a girl of 14 when others were around being dumb about penises. They GAVE me that job because all the geldings would always drop when I was grooming them or tacking them up for the kids. Oy. So I've had lots of practice, having done probably about 60 different geldings from that time onward.

And no, I DON'T use gloves unless the horse is clearly just going to let me do whatever to it. Warm hands are key.

So altogether I don't mind it, and even like it when I get a gross sheath and penis all sparkling clean and happy. As penises should be!

3) Arm wrestling, thumb wrestling, or other?
Body-wrestling, definitely. Mostly cause my arms are gimpy and my thumbs are short (they really are). But only with the boy usually, cause I'm not a fan of touching outside of him.

4) Could you survive with no internet and no tv?
No TV easily, but I would probably have a twitchy withdrawal period for the internet. It's e-mail more than anything, because I hate the phone and e-mail is my primary means of communication. Also, all my news is garnered from the internet (BBC usually), though I also listen to talk radio while driving sometimes.

5) You are transported back to the Nuremberg trials. You're a lawyer. You are asked to defend war criminals. The pay is decent, but not spectacular. Do you do it?
Oooh, good question!

In general, PROBABLY, because I feel that everyone deserves to have someone speak for them. Obviously not my first choice in a job Even if they did terrible things, it's more likely the truth of things will come out if a criminal has a "safe" person to talk to, like a lawyer. If they were truly guilty, I would recommend they plead so.

I'm sure there are some crimes and acts that I would find it very hard to remain neutral about, and therefore I would not be a good defender. It would depend on the defendant, but my cynical view of humanity would probably help me out in this case.

Stolent from [livejournal.com profile] remix22

Dear [livejournal.com profile] blitzen_,
I don't really know how to tell you this, but you're a snake. I think I realized it when I threw up in your sock drawer at the mental hospital and I saw you sit on your ‘My Little Pony’ collection. I'm sure you're slutty enough to understand that you need a sex-change. I'm returning our matching snoopy underwear to you, but I'll keep your photo with the mustache drawn on it as a memory. You should also know that I told in my confession today about the moose poaching and you ruined my attempts at another world war.

Best of luck on the sex change,
Marie
