Answers to kestrelsparhawk's questions for the interview meme:


1. When you were 9 or so, what did you plan to be when you grew up, and did you get what you wanted?

I think I mostly wanted not to be a doctor. From infancy, my mother said things like "when you're in medical school" or "after your internship" or "don't feel you have to do a residency right away." All I knew was I didn't want to do what I was told to. I'm not a doctor, although I work in public health, so I guess I got what I wanted.

2. If you were reading your own eulogy, what are the 10 words you would like to see there describing you for sure? (Verbs, nouns, etc. not a sentence!)

Thoughtful, mother, helped, engaged, interesting, learned, miss, impact, challenged, taught.

3. Is there any sexual activity you haven't tried you think you probably will, if the right partner comes along? What, and who/what would be the right partner?

For some reason this makes me think of my Scott, who says that he's done things with Logan he'd never done with anyone else, and that he was surprised to find there were things to do that he hadn't done with anyone else. Anyway, I think I'd find out the answer to this one if and when the right partner came along. I don't know that I'd share it with my whole f-list, though.

4. If you could live absolutely anywhere, where would you most enjoy living (assuming you could bring along children, lovers, etc.)

I love where I live. I can't imagine anywhere better to live than New York City, or any neighborhood in New York I'd rather live in than Park Slope. When I think of living other places, I always compare to what I've got and think I could live somewhere because it was "kind of like New York" or "kind of like Park Slope." I've been here since 1992 and I still thank Something that there is such a place - an interesting, fun, diverse urban environment with beautiful green space, funky interesting housing stock, great services for families, easy transportation and a gazillion lesbians. If I had unlimited funds I'd certainly live in a larger place here, but I'd stay here. Well, I'd like to have a second home, as well. Fire Island, I think.

5. What is the answer to the one question you're worried people might ask?


Yes I did, but I regret it profoundly and it was a long time ago and I know I'll never do it again.

Your answer to #6 is almost exactly the answer I would have given. I wonder if our questions would have been even slightly similar :D

Your answer to 4 was in the ballpark of what I thought -- ie I suspected you love New York, but I liked hearing the answer. Yes, if you find other places "similar enough to live," you're where your heart belongs -- how nice for you!

I'm having fun guessing the question for #5. A whole new game -- take other people's answers and invent new questions for them! (Improbable ones, of course, like, "Did you ever ride in a helium balloon?")

Yes, I'm lucky that way.

I've ridden in a hot air balloon (can one ride in a helium balloon?). I don't regret it at all!

LMAO... wow, that could cover a multitude of... er... sins and stuff. I've known you for a long time (11 years now?), but I can only guess at 3 or 4 possibilities... none of which may be that one question.
