Five questions from [personal profile] busaikko , who is doing a giving-people-questions meme.

Three really good books you'd recommend!
Agh, there are so many!  but recently I've been on a Pageturners of Yesteryear kick, so...
Trustee from the Toolroom by Nevil Shute
The Far Pavilions by M. M. Kaye
The Queen's Gambit by Walter Tevis

What book did you read as a child that really affected you as a person?
Got to be The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death by Daniel Pinkwater.  It was one of the first things I read where I just completely agreed with the entire sensibility of the author and seriously felt like I was not alone in my particular flavor of weirdness!

What's something that you've always wanted to do or try, and you're working to make that happen?

Wow, such a good question!  For the past few years I've kind of been thinking about learning to do some woodworking, and just today a friend of a friend said she was taking a wood shop class and there might still be time to sign up!  So I'm going to see if I can join.

What question do you wish people would ask you (but they never do)?
Ha!  I'd like a guy that I was interested in to ask me out on a date. :-) 
I've at least progressed(?) to where completely inappropriate men ask me out, so I guess that's something. :-/

(And bonus: the question that people always ask me and I wish they wouldn't--"So, are there still going to be libraries now with the whole ebook thing?")

You're the DJ at your reunion/commitment ceremony/birthday/other major life event. What's the playlist?
Well clearly Party Hard by Andrew WK would start off the evening...the sweet romantic slow dance would be Beyond the Blue by Joan Armatrading...then we would really get down with Whoo! Alright - Yeah...Uh Huh. by the Rapture and Danza Kuduro by Don Omar...and then we'd take it back with something everyone secretly loves like Bust a Move or Poison...



If anyone wants to meme with me, leave a comment saying so and I'll think up some questions....
