Share Your World — week 51

Time once again for Cee’s Share Your World Challenge.  This is a weekly effort, in which we attempt to get to know each other better.  Below you will find my answers in blue:

  1. Your most favorite fiction book?   Hey, Cee, I’m sure glad you didn’t pick any HARD ONES!!!!!  I don’t have the foggiest idea where to begin to narrow them down.  I love The Hunt for Red October, by Tom Clancy; I love The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley; I would have to choose as my favorite A Darkness at Sethanon, by Raymond Feist.  This is the third book of the Riftwar Series.  If you like a well-written battle, read it!
  2. What one thing you miss about being a kid?  The belief that, when I grew up, things were going to be easier.  I’d love to be able to recapture that innocent, perhaps naive, understanding of life.
  3. If you were an ice cream cone how many scoops and flavors would you be and why? If I were ice cream, I wouldn’t be a cone, first of all — too crunchy and hard to manage.  I would be a three-flavored dish:  Coconut for how much I love the tropics; Ben & Jerry’s Coffee Heath Bar Crunch, (I didn’t like coffee IceCream till I tasted that,) because I had a good friend who introduced me to it; and Mint Chocolate Chip, because I don’t always enjoy mint, and this is one way I can; with a healthy sprinkling of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup crumbs, and butterscotch syrup — these last two represent my newest and my oldest loves in Ice Cream, with the butterscotch sauce my favorite from the same time in childhood that I described above, and the peanut butter cups pieces because whenever I order a Blizzard or other blended Ice Cream treat, it will have RPC pieces in it — no other reason except I consider a RPC one of the finest candy confections ever created.  That’s all.
  4. What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?  I was a guide at the Bath Marine Museum, (now the Maine Maritime Museum.)  We had five sites around the city, and a boat that went back and forth between the furthest north site and the furthest south site.  I loved being the guide on the boat, and I really enjoyed the whole job.
