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:
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
