Why not?

(yoinked from cowboysoultaker)(then from unseeliequeen)

I want everyone who reads this to ask me 3 questions, no more no less. Ask me anything you want, even if it's extremely personal. I DON'T CARE. It's part of the fun. Then I want you to go to your journal, copy and paste this allowing your friends (including myself) to ask you anything.


1. Why did you choose to play a mystic wood elf?
2. What is your favorite part of school?
3. How did you and Eric meet?
1) They made the most sense to me. When I started the game, I wanted to play someone similar to myself while I learned the rules. MWEs are open minded and creative and curious and are passionate about living. They live as long as elves and Biata, so have plenty of time to become wise, but manage to maintain a youthfulness the other long-lived races lack. And they are rumored to have descended from fey (at least in some lands). If the rest didn't do it, that did.

2)My favorite part of school is that I want to learn, and that makes all the difference. When I was fresh out of high school, I hated school and didn't want to go to college. One thing after another, but I wound up going to a community college in NJ for a semester and a half, not really caring, so not doing well. I had to move after my second semester (part of a longer story) and went off to join the working world. That was ok, and I only came out of that unscathed due to some gracious and caring souls who believed in me, even though I sometimes let them down. But one day I decided my brain was rotting, and that I wanted to go back to school and "make it go". Wanting to be here and sitting up front and participating is the best part of school because now I am getting something out of it. I can hardly wait for the next semester to begin (even though I'm rarely thrilled to write papers).

3) Eric and I met at NERO. I think it was my 2nd or 3rd event. Little Issy, hardly a skill to my name, outside listening to someone's conversation and waiting to say hi to that nice biata with the 'H' on his forehead, when this little elf girl ran up behind me and ducked and said, "Don't let my brother see me or i'll get in trouble. I'm not supposed to be out of the forest." Always wanting to help a pretty young thing, I asked who her brother was. She pointed to a tall elf with rings in his ears and chainmail on, who happened to be talking to the same biata I was waiting to say hi to (Sir Jonothan). "Scarn is my brother", she said. That was the first time I saw him. Thought he was pretty cute. But my charachter was tiny and scared of the city and all the big people in it, and had heard whispers of Scarn and what a badass he was, so I didn't talk to him for like a year. Then stuff happened in the game, and someone wanted Star to take an enslavement antidote, I don't remember who, and someone asked someone else and I wound up talking to him and Gabriel through that. And they seemed like nice guys and hung out with that nice biata fella, so I said hi to them after a game. We were friends for a while and were dating other people, but stuff happens, and now we live together in Boston and our charachters are handfasted and life is good.

Whew. Um, that was a book. Guess I'm feeling verbose today. I could have answered them with 2-3 sentences, but that never seems enough.


1.)How do you deal with monogamy?
B.)Are you going to the NY renn faire this year, and if so when?
5.)three, sir. 3.) How are Tink and Boo?

I don't have a livejournal to post the questions so you'll just have to email me. ;P
1) One day at a time. Being too busy to think about it helps too. ;)
B) Not that I know of, as I need to work, and the time I have off is taken up by NERO. :(
5) Tink has lost a lot of weight and is obsessed with Eric and I being in bed where we are safe. I don't know why this is. Boo is still busy and throwing up, but has allowed herself to be pet a few times this week. :)

1)Are you happy in your relationship (why or why not)?
2) How are things at the Haus?
3)How is your mom?
Hmmm.... let's see... name, quest, favorite color? No, that's been done before...

1) What's your favorite book?
2) What's one thing you've never done, but really want to do?
3) What's your favorite place on earth?
My name is Magdalen. My quest is to understand an aspect of Truth (that I have not understood in a previous life) before I die, while becoming a person that I can respect. My favorite color is olive green.

1)My favorite book is The Mists of Avalon.
2)Be in a movie. Write and sell a piece of fiction. Take mushrooms. Go bungee jumping/parasailing/hangliding/skydiving. Travel the world. Live the simple life (a la the village in Last Samauri). Oh. You said one thing. Er...all this at the same time?
3)Bed in the morning, when the sunlight comes in through the blinds, the pillow is adjusted to my head, the blankets are warm and snuggly, the cat(s) are asleep curled up next to my legs, and Eric digs through the piles of covers and pillows to hold me before one or both of us has to get up. That is my favorite place in the world.

I had to post this twice, I just can't spell today.

1) What would you consider your true hometown?
2) What would you consider your ultimate date?
3) What would you consider your worst habit?

Re: I had to post this twice, I just can't spell today.

1)Wow. True hometown. That's a tough one because I have had so many growing experiences in so many places, and they were all so different. It's hard to isolate factors. I spent the most time in the Rahway area of NJ, a good chunk of early childhood, which was miserable, so that's where I learned how to hide. In Georgia i learned how to be heard. In Stroudsburg I had my first taste of independance and living free from cruelty. I learn different things every place I go. I guess my hometown is wherever I am learning, so right now, it's Brighton.

2)The ultimete date would start with being picked up from work or school because at the same time that I appreciate it, at the end of the day, I really don't feel like taking public transportation. I would be taken home, given a footrub, then shower and change. We would then go eat, because I get cranky if I don't eat regularly, either Indian or Sushi (unless he has made dinner for us with candles and such, but it's hard to work out a time when no one else will be there). Then a barefoot walk somewhere where there is soft grass and maybe a waterfall. Once dinner settles we would go skydiving (maybe that should be before dinner). Then a late swim somewhere where they don't use bromine, preferably a cleanish lake or river. Then back home, where he would find a way to distract me while he lit a bunch of candles and put on sexy music...bacon and eggs for breakfast.

3)I leave stuff on the floor. Mostly clothes. But I am really bad about clutter.
