Travel anywhere, where would it be?
Meet anyone, who would it be?
Bring anyone dead back to life, who would it be?
It has to be two -- Paul and David
Be anyone for a day, who would it be?
Bill Gates (as long as I would have access to his check book)
Get anything for free for the rest of your life what would it be?
Change one thing about your life what would it be?
I would prefer not to be the mother of two dead sons.
Have any superpower what would it be?
Be any animal for a day which would you be?
An elephant...I want to truly understand elephant societies (also, I think it would

I'm too old to date anyone.
Change one thing about the world what would it be?
Clean water and sanitation facilities for everyone.
Live in any fictional universe which would you choose?
Well, with Claire and Jaime on Fraser's Ridge, of course (away from all the battles).
Eliminate one of your human needs which would you get rid of?
I kinda like all my needs.
Change one thing about your physical appearance what would it be?
I'd like to be magically the right size.
Change one of your personality traits which would you choose?
Ah now, none of that. If I admit which one, I'll have to work on changing it.
I'm on to your tricks.
Be talented at anything instantly what would you choose?
Understand everything about photography.
Forget one event in your life which would you choose?
The one where Peggy decided she hated me (whichever event that was -- I still don't
Erase an event from history (make it so it never happened) which would you choose?
The temptation to reverse the 2000 Supreme Court decision handing the presidency to
George Bush is tempting, but I believe in the butterfly effect, how everything in this
world is connected. If you erase one event from history how will that affect the
GOOD things today? Better not mess with the past.
Have any hair/eye/skin color, which would you choose?
If I were younger, I would have auburn hair, green eyes, and that lovely Irish
complexion. (In other words, I want to be Maureen O'Hara in the 50s)

Thin enough to buy clothes, heavy enough not to look anoretic.
Live in any country/city, where would you choose?
I'm happy where I am, but if I had to choose some other place, I would pick London.

Make same gender marriage irrevocably legal in all states.
Be any height, which would you choose?
What I used to be -- 5'7-1/2" I hate not being able to reach high shelves
Have any job in the world, which would you choose?
I'd still prefer to be retired.
Have anything appear in your pocket right now, what would it be?
Something chocolate (but wrapped, so it wouldn't melt)
Have anyone beside you right now, who would it be?
Paul, because I have so many questions to ask him about his death. And I miss
our long, in-depth conversations.
