eurydice james: pepperlandgirl4

Can you fill this out without lying?

teragramm did this, and it looked like fun, so here goes.

1.) What was the last thing you put in your mouth? Dark chocolate banana dippers

2.) Do you sleep naked? Very occasionally

3.) Worst physical pain you have ever had? The gallbladder attacks in my 30s. I hid them for over a month because I didn't want to be a bother, but Craig found me curled up in the shower one evening, crying, and immediately took me to the ER. My vomiting had burst all the blood vessels in my eyes, and the hospital staff kicked him out to question me and make sure he wasn't the reason I looked so terrible. I was admitted with pancreatitis, then a week later had my gallbladder surgery. So worth it.

4.) Favorite place you have ever been? Scotland.

5.) How late did you stay up last night? 11:50 pm

6.) If you could move somewhere else, where would it be? I used to say back to England, which is still a major draw, but the current mess with Brexit has diminished that desire a little. Ask me again after the 2020 election.

7.) Which of your Facebook friends lives closest to you? No idea. There might be some people in SF or on the peninsula, but I don't know who they are off the top of my head. manoah is only 3.5 hours away, though. ETA: I only just realized after reading this meme on somebody else's list that this says Facebook, lol. In answer to that question, my neighbor right to my left. But this is LJ, so I'm sticking with the original response here, too. :)

8.) When was the last time you cried? Closing night of the play I directed. So...three weeks ago.

9.) Who took your profile picture? My default LJ icon is from a photo taken by ghostgirl13.

10.) Two of your favorite movies? Mary Poppins and The Philadelphia Story

11.) What's your favorite season? Here in California, it's winter. Almost anywhere else, spring.

12.) If you could talk to ANYONE right now, who would it be? Professor Marvin Sims. He was one of my teachers in college and also directed me in one of my favorite performances ever. I loved him to pieces for his kind soul, creative energy, and open spirit. He made me a better person and believed in me when I didn't. I would love to tell him how profoundly he affected me and how much I still think about him. Sadly, he passed away in 2003. It makes me hurt just thinking about it.

13.) Are you a good influence? I like to think so, yes.

14.) Does pineapple belong on pizza? Only with ham.

15.) You have the remote, what show would you have on? Only one, I pick Buffy.

16.) First concert you ever attended: Sting in 1988 at the Masonic Temple in Detroit. That concert introduced me to Branford Marsalis.

17.) Favorite food? Fried chicken.

18.) When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A surgeon
