1. Who are you? Heather
2. Have we ever met? Not in person, no.
3. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it. "Meg" I didn't pick it, it was picked for me (because I'm bad at picking pseudonyms.) I had to have it at the time because I was trying to be anonymous online. It lasted about two years, then my real name came out.
4. Describe me in one word. Funny.
5. What reminds you of me? Cicadas - nothing personal, it's just that the first post I read here was about cicadas.
6. If you could give me anything, what would it be? Umm... you like music, so how about another guitar?
7. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't? I don't think I've known you long enough for that.
8. Are you going to put this on your weblog and see what I say about you? Maybe.
9. What do you love like a fat kid loves cake? Cake would be too obvious of an answer, wouldn't it? Then I'll say that I really love traveling.
10. What makes you come back here? The posts are interesting and the design of the site's real pretty. :)

9. Ummmm, Buffy, Ugg boots, sandy beaches, and um, cake.
10. Every time I do I find more examples of riveting writing that brighten my day.

Posted by: Sassy at June 4, 2004 12:57 PM

6. If you could give me anything, what would it be? Brand new top-o-the-line camera. But of course, then I'd just want it back.
7. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn’t? I never want to tell anyone anything. That's one of the bonuses/drawbacks to being an antisocial hermit-type. (This is the same answer I'm posting on everyone's blog... cos I'm boring that way).
8. Are you going to put this on your weblog and see what I say about you? Doubtful. It would just remind me that no one reads/comments on my blog. *snivel*
9. What do you love like a fat kid loves cake? My hounds. Only they don't taste as good. And they're a bit hairy. But with the right sauce and a little shaving...

4. Kindandgenerousissimo.
5. Haiku, shoddy policies that don't take cicadas into account, jam sessions (and getting serious air during them), crazy whackjob gardeners with serious stream of consciousness problems, internal "meeting snapfests" (thank you by the way--great self-entertainment!), anything smacking of sincerity.
6. I like the idea of performing with the musicians of your choice, but I'll go with complete freedom from financial worry, just to see what you'd do with it. Just keep the blog!
7. Not really. I have very liberal filters, and things usually spill out as I think of them!
8. I already did.
9. My children, writing, my bloggy, bloggy friends.
10. Masochism. Not! Your wonderful writing, and the free admission that your family is totally nuts (and that's why we love 'em).
