Now, without further ado, here are my answers to her questions.
1. What would you do on a rainy (but not stormy) day?
Ummm...I like to sit against a window and read or watch the rain fall. (I also still sometimes race the raindrops...don't judge. :P) Running around outside is nice too, and pretending that one is a Very Fine Lady with an umbrella...er, parasol. :P
2. Heels or flats?
Flats. I can't stand heels.
3. Is there any particular music/song that ever gives you chills from the beauty or inspiration of it?
"Let It Go" would be a big one, as well as "Defying Gravity". Also, "Do You Hear the People Sing?," "Never Say Goodbye," and "Amazing Grace".
4. Would you find a mud battle hilariously fun or positively gross?
Positively gross till I got into it, and then I'd probably have a lot of fun.
5. Is there anything you feel God has taught you over the past year?
That He's always there, and that His peace is yours for the asking. I've been struggling with some anxiety issues, and the moment when I realized that "the peace of God, which transcends all understanding" could be mine...that was huge.
6. Favorite sidekick/best friend character from literature?
Really??? Why??? Gahhh...I can never answer this question. Combeferre from Les Mis, Galinda from Wicked, Tacy and Tib from the Betsy-Tacy books, and Bucky from Captain America are a few of the biggest ones. Oh, and Pascal from Tangled. :D
7. What do you like to do for exercise?
I used to run, but I don't do it much anymore. Let's see...I like to ride my bike, and ride horses, and pretend to be Enjolras flopping over a barricade, and run up and down the stairs dramatically singing, "Down Once More" or "Let It Go". Haha...
8. A favorite movie/TV show nobody would expect you to like?
That depends on who it is that's not expecting it. :P Let's see...um...I guess it might come as a surprise to some people that I quite like Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu. It kind of surprises ME that I like it, so...
9. E-mailing, telephoning, texting, or snail mail?
I don't text at all, so that's out--and I'm not much good at calling people on the phone--so I'd have to say...it's a toss-up between email and snail mail. Emailing is much quicker, but letters are more personal. I guess I'd say letters as personal preference, but I use email more 'cause it's so convenient.
10. Describe your dream dress:
Ummm...haha, I've never really thought too much about that. Something Regency-ish, and maybe light pink or violet, with silver...and puffed sleeves! We love puffed sleeves. ;) That aside, I do love Flounces and Frills and skirts that spin out when you twirl.
11. Favorite Biblical name?
For girl names...I've always liked Miriam and Esther and Ruth. For boys, I like Isaac and Ezra and Aaron. Okay, so maybe that was more than one...
Eva of Ramblings of a Janeite
Monica of Spilled Ink
Eowyn of Inklings Press
Melody of Regency Delight
Sierra of A Burst of Many Colors
