well, i don’t really have much to post, and since i’ve enjoyed reading many other people’s post with this question thing, i suppose i’ll do it too…

[1] If you could be instantly fluent in one other language that you currently do not read or speak, which would it be?
Greek.  it’s partly a heritage thing, plus, how cool would it be to read the New Testament in it’s original language?!? 

[2] If you could have the starring role in any film already made, what would it be?
something Jane Austen.  probably Elinor in Sense and Sensibility.  or Fanny from Mansfield Park.  i love both of those characters…

[3] If you could receive one small package this very moment, who would it be from and what would be in it?
oh wouldn’t you like to know….  it would be from someone special, and would have a special, life-altering item in it…    that’s the romantic side of me coming out.  on the other hand, i wouldn’t mind a flat, rectangular envelope containing a small piece of paper with a $ sign on it… 

[4] If you could own one painting from any collection in the world but were not able to sell it, which work of art would you select?
hmmm…  i don’t know a ton about art, but i love Renoir’s stuff, so probably something by him…

[5] If you were instantly able to play one musical instrument perfectly that you never have played before, what would it be?
violin or guitar.  i’d probably go with the guitar just b/c of it’s versatility and how perfect it is for worship music… 

[6] If you could possess one supernatural ability, what would it be? 
the ability to freeze time. 

[7] If you had to choose the most valuable thing you ever learned what would it be?
my desperate need for a Savior, and that Jesus has made the way. 

[8] If you could have only one piece of furniture in your house, what would it be?
a four poster bed that stood several feet off the floor, shelves underneath, with a table that slid out of the footboard.

[9] If you could read the private diary of someone you know personally, whose diary would it be?
that scares me.  i’m scared i would learn things i didn’t want to know.  there’s a reason it’s a private diary…  the only person whose diary i think i’d want to read is my husband’s… someday… 

[10] If you could have one person you know as your slave (well-paid and cared for domestic laborer) for one month, who would it be?
that’s a tough one…  i really don’t know.   i really don’t like the idea of any of my friends being my slave, waiting on me…  i’d much rather hang out and mutually serve each other. 

[11] If you could choose the way you will die, how would you want it to happen?
in my sleep.  what can i say, i’m a wimp. 

[12] If you could wake up tomorrow to learn that the major newspaper headlines were about you, what would you want them to say?
no thank you.  no headlines for me. 

[13] If you won the lottery, how would you spend the money?
tithe, of course.  send my parents on a cruise.  probably buy myself a car (nothing fancy.  just one to get me by).  i don’t know.  i’d probably hold off on spending any of it for a month at least, just to pray and make sure i made a wise decision. 

[14] If you could choose the music at your funeral, what would it be, and who would play it? In Christ Alone or The Wonderful Cross.  i’d love it if one of my friends sang it. 

[15] If you could have the vocal cords of any person, who would it be?
josh groban has an amazing voice.  and i do love my best friend(Raigan)’s voice.  so the female equivilent of josh groban’s voice or raigan’s. 

[16] If you had to describe your idea of the perfect mate, how would you do it?
male.  Godly. 

(haha!  okay, okay, i know there’s way more to it than that, but i also know that God is preparing someone perfectly for me, so i don’t worry too much about it…  i have thought through what i like and must have, but i don’t feel like articulating all of that here….)

[17] If you had to have a personal friend redecorate your house, who would you pick to do it?
my cousins (nicole and becky) and bethany.  they know me really well, and are really creative. 

[18] If you had to choose the worst home you’ve ever lived in, which one was it?
i don’t remember this one really, but we lived in a house where the backyard backed up to price road.  according to my parents it was awful and we only lived there 6 months.  i only really remember the house we’re in now, and the house prior to this one, which we lived in for 8 years.  and both were/are great. 

[19] If you could have prevented one thing from happening between you and a friend, what would it have been?
unresolved conflict based on circumstances beyond my control. 

[20] If you could learn the total number of hours you have spent in your life doing one thing, what would it be?
i completely agree with jessi on this one – “I’d rather not know. It would either disappoint or puff up. I don’t need either of those.”

[21] If you had to describe yourself as a child in one word, what would it be?

[22] If you could own a single prop from any film ever made what would you choose?
does a castle count as a prop?    how ’bout the city of Rohan?

[23] If you had to eliminate one emotion from your life, which would it be?
pride, if that were possible.  or selfish ambition.

[25] If you had to name one thing that most limits your freedom, what would it be?
selfish ambition or self(ish) awareness. 

[27] if you could ask God one question, what would you ask? 
first, as if we would be able to understand the answer, and then think that we would be content/it would be sufficient knowing the answer!  second, if we could ask?  God invites us to ask all we want, but i often ask with sinful/prideful motives.  i am thankful for unanswered prayer. 

[28] if you could suddenly posses an extraordinary talent in one of the arts, what would you like it to be?
writing music. 

[29] If you had to die in one of history’s disasters, which one would it be?
hmmm….  definitely not the flood.  how ’bout Pompei?  something quick and painless.  yet it’s very mysterious. 

[30] If you had to choose between love and no money or money and no love for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
love conquers all. 

[31] If you worked for a store and saw another employee steal something, would you tell the manager?
i’d talk to the employee and make sure that what i saw them do was actually what it looked like (it’d be awfully embarrassing if they weren’t stealing and you reported them…).  if they were, then i’d tell them they need to report it or i would…

[32] One person you could spend the rest of your life with:
that amazing man God has out there for me.    but until then, either of my best friends – bethany or raigan. 

[33] Five things you do everyday:
1. blink
2. think
3. eat
4. talk
5. smile

[35] Describe what will most likely happen in your future:
i’ll probably get married, have kids and spend the rest of my life raising them and helping my husband and pouring our lives into the local church.  woo-hoo!
