ginger: (baby moose)
[ profile] pyran -- If you could own a live moose... would you?

Y'know.....I have to say, probably not under any feasible set of circumstances. If I lived somewhere moose-friendly, with enough land-room for them to be happy, and could be assured of keeping them safe from hunters, I'd think about it. If moose were medium-dog-sized, definitely. But a full-grown moose would be happier in the wild than in Bellevue, and I am the other way around. :)

[ profile] sibylla -- Why is it, do you think, that so many brunettes delude themselves into believing that they're redheads?

Good moose, I wish I knew. I've wondered that pretty consistently myself all my life. :) Blondes do it too, though not quite as often.

[ profile] jessiebelle -- What's on your knitting needles?

Half of a Flirty Ruffles shawl (size 3 Addis, Jaggerspun Zephyr in copper). A second sock (size 3 Inox DPNs, Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Rainbow). I have a bag of Silky Wool in my car that's going to become either the Eris sweater from the woman who designed Rogue or a long lacey duster-type jacket, but I haven't decided yet, nor started anything with it.

[ profile] missysedai -- Can my moose of choice be chocolate?
Of course. Chocolate is my favorite dessert moose. Especially with a hint of mint.

[ profile] rhiannonstone -- What are you doing for Xmas?
Not going anywhere - I can't take time off work between Thanksgiving and Xmess - other than that, not sure yet :)

[ profile] clockworktomato -- What is (one of) your favorite book(s)?
Oo. Tough call. One of my favorite SERIES of books is the multi-trilogy series (something like 12 books, I think?) by Harry Turtledove that starts with "The Guns of the South" - but if you don't like military history, some of the books will leave you cold, though he does do some great characterization. I've recommended The Terrorists of Irustan by Louise Marley to every female sci-fi geek I know, I think, and if not, consider it a rec here and now :) I have a peculiar fondness for a YA book called Frankie, by Willanne Schneider Belden, about growing up in a family of witches and wizards and then having a baby brother who turns out to be a griffin. I have a love-hate relationship with Stephen King - I pretty much hate everything he's written since Insomnia (inclusive) - but I've never met a Dean Koontz book I didn't like, and I've lately been chowing through Matthew Reilly's books like mad (that's the author I recommended to you last week, with the James-Bond-meets-Indiana-Jones book - Temple - and the Michael Crichton-like book Contest).

[ profile] fishsupreme -- Tacos?
Always. :)

[ profile] gwenivere -- Hiya, babes ;) how's it going?
Stellar. :)

[ profile] crimmycat -- what kind of cookies would you make with a moose-shaped cookie cutter?
I have a moose-shaped cookie cutter - I tried to make sugar cookies with it, but I've never been any good at the fine arts of cookie-cutting. The dough always sticks to everything, and the cookies never hold their shape.

[ profile] knitmeapony -- Pie?
I'll be making three of them tomorrow. Want some?

[ profile] tyche -- What is your favorite hair accessory?
A 6" 3-pronged wooden hair fork - I've used it probably at least five times a week, if not more, for 6 years, and I would sob like a little baby if it broke or vanished. I watched someone at the MI Renaissance Festival carve it for me, and it was SO worth the $25 I paid for it. It's the only thing other than a pair of size 11 circular knitting needles that can hold ALL my hair up for more than a couple hours at a time without readjustment.

[ profile] telesilla -- Speaking of Qdoba, what's your favorite thing on their menu?
I always have the same thing: A naked chicken queso burrito (pinto beans, half scoop of corn salsa, cheese and sour cream) with chips instead of the tortilla, which I then dip into it. :)
ginger: (hamster with uzi!)
[ profile] deusinnomen -- What'cha doing with your Thanksgiving holiday?

On Thanksgiving day itself, Dan and I are going to Kent to Sammy/Cat/Dee's place for what I understand is to be an Orphan's Thanksgiving afternoon/evening. I volunteered to bring dessert, so Wednesday evening, I'll be making a batch of pumpkin pies, a key lime pie and a pan of fudge. Also, perhaps a diabetic-safe fruit cobbler - depends on whether I can find a good recipe. Sunday, after Ari gets back from visiting his family in Chicago, we'll be having a family dinner with him and Grant and Anjela, where Anjela and I intend to reprise our successful chicken-roasting, increase the quantity of roasted potatoes, and (I think) make a second stab at steaming asparagus.

[ profile] physidork -- Platypus?

Not really my thing, though I have a big stuffed one somewhere around my desk at home, and I used to have a little stuffed one living on the dashboard of my minivan many many moons ago.

[ profile] crisavec -- How long is your hair today?

Mm, probably just around waist-length, same as yesterday :)

[ profile] sheeplass -- Tacos Wednesday? Friday?

Either or both works for me, though I have some baking to do on Wednesday evening!

Interview questions from [ profile] tyche:

1. You are forced to choose between your right thumb and all your hair. Which do you pick, and why?
Damn. I'll have you know, I just picked up a pencil and a pair of knitting needles to see if I could write and knit without my right thumb, and I'm typing this without using it either. None of those things are EASY to do without it, but all manageable. In a hypothetical situation, I'd say lose the thumb, because I can funtion perfectly well without it and because I spent way too long hating the way I looked because of my hair to have to start all over from scratch with that again. However, in reality, I'm waaaaay too much of a wimp to choose surgery over a haircut, I suspect.

2. What do you miss most about the Midwest?
Not counting people (as that would be a "who," not a "what"): Fazoli's. Mmm. Breadsticks.

3. What is your favorite book or series of books?
The Outlander books, I think. They're the perfect mixture of historical fiction, fictionalized history, and smut.

4. How big is the perfect sized scarf?
Really, I tend to prefer the long skinny decorative ones over the functional warm ones. So for me, it's about 2-3" wide and about 6 feet long.

5. What kind of yarn do you like the most? Why?
Overall, I'd have to say Cascade 220. It's a nice basic worsted-weight wool, comes in a bajillion colors, is reasonably priced ($7.50 for 220 yards, usually) and fairly easy to find locally, is both soft enough to wear and sturdy enough to felt, and is available in superwash versions.
