So usually I don't do the tagging games we've got going around here. I just like to use my journal space for "official" or "important" things, I guess, and the tagging games don't hit either of those marks for me... except I got tagged by a friend of mine this time (the lovely *nds-stock
) and figured, "Okay, what the hell?"
1. You must post these rules.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you, and create new questions for the people you tag to answer.
3. You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal
4. Go to their pages and tell them you have tagged her/him.
5. No tag backs.
6. No crap in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you're reading this." You have to tag 10 people.*nds-stock's questions for me are:
1. If you had to spend a week outdoors roughing it, where would you want to have to spend that week?
Outer Mongolia. I've wanted to spend time with a nomad family since I learned they're horse people (and since my anthropologist cousin did her doctoral thesis by spending six months travelling with a Mongolian nomad family).
2. What is your favorite drink on a hot sunny day?
Oh dear... for those under drinking age, lemonade. For those over drinking age, the sweetest white or pink wine you can find! -guilty-
3. What are your favorite three authors?
I can only name three? D: Damn... okay... Patrick Rothfuss. The man's a genius; his Kingkiller Chronicles are easily the best-written books I've ever read. Brian Jacques. Right, the Redwall Saga may not be the best-written literature by any stretch of the imagination, but reading those books has always brought me comfort and thrown me into the kinds of adventures I still dream of having. Finally... oh my god, this is so hard. I want to say J.K. Rowling, or George R.R. Martin, or Dan Simmons, or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, or -- wait, okay. Bertrand Russell. Right, right, not a novelist, but an author of philosophy whose works I've always found interesting and really well-written. Plus, I agree with him on just about everything, and I sort of really wish I'd been a young woman when he was all into illegitimate children, because a mind like that can "Russell" my petticoats any day. Done.
4. Name three Harpg/Art Rpg Horses owned by others that you fancy.
=Ehetere's Erebos and =topcreek's Rhapsody for their designs, and *VersaFarm's Vogue, because though that mare's had four owners so far, she's perservered through the game (when a lot of horses get killed off or something), and because she started out as one of ~Hazel-rah's (whose art is one of the big reasons I joined HARPG in the first place).
5. Would you rather ride in jeans or breeches and why?
If I have to choose between the two, breeches, because my pair is more elastic, doesn't have an inside seam, and is tailored to have a high waist (no two-point plumber's crack) and tuck neatly into my half-chaps or tall boots. My real preference, however, is riding leggings / jodhpurs, because those are just suuuuper-stretchy and clingy and comfortable.
6. What is your first thought in the morning?
Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy... -curses alarm clock-
7. Do you have a favorite flower?
Not off the top of my head.
8. If you could speak any language in the world what would it be?
9. What is your dream job?
NONE. Haha I'd love to own a medium-sized horse property (like Tamarack Park, actually) and have made enough money in my career as an attorney to care for and train my own horses.
10. What breed(s) of horse would you like to see more of Harpg/Art Rpg?
GEORGIAN GRANDES. AMERICAN SADDLEBREDS. GEORGIAN GRANDES. VARIOUS DRAFT BREEDS. GEORGIAN GRANDES.
My questions for you are:
1. Have you made yourself into a character in your HARPG? If so, which character is "you"?
2. Ever met a horse in real life who you'd call your "ideal" horse? (And if you have, why is that horse "ideal" for you?)
3. If you were any animal except a horse, what would you be, and why?
4. How'd you get involved in HARPG?
5. Is there anything you've said/done on dA that, in retrospect, you wish you hadn't? If so, what is it?
6. What one piece of art in your gallery are you most proud of, and why?
7. How did you meet your best friend, and why is he/she your best friend?
8. If you could change anything about yourself, what would you change and why?
9. What's your one favorite book, and why?
10. "In a room sit three great men, a king, a priest, and a rich man with his gold. Between them stands a sellsword, a little man of common birth and no great mind. Each of the great ones bids him slay the other two. 'Do it,' says the king, 'for I am your lawful ruler.' 'Do it,' says the priest, 'for I command you in the names of the gods.' 'Do it,' says the rich man, 'and all this gold shall be yours.' So tell me—who lives and who dies?"
