Tom from The Funny Farm tagged me in my comments a little over a month ago, challenging me to answer the Five Questions that seem to be making the rounds of the blogosphere, and now I'm *finally* getting answering them. (Sorry Tom, it's been a busy month.)

Question One: If you were stuck in the world of Fahrenheit 451, which book would you would you want to memorize and preserve?

A: "Don Quixote" by Miguel de Cervantes

Question Two: Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

A: Oh yeah, Dr. Daniel Jackson from Stargate SG-1. A sensitive, brainy, good-looking archaeologist who speaks 20-some languages...what could possibly be sexier?

Question Three: What is the last book you bought?

A: "French Women Don't Get Fat" by Mireille Guiliano

Question Four: What book(s) are you reading now?

A: "Yoga Mind, Buddha Body" by Cyndi Lee, Homer's "The Iliad", "Women Who Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype" by Clarissa Pinkola Estes Ph.D. and "Fall of Atlantis" by Marion Zimmer Bradley

Question Five: What five books would you want to be among what was left of your belongings if you were stranded with nothing but them to read on a desert island?

A: 1. "The Hobbit" and "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, bound into one book; I'm pretty sure they make this (and if they don't, they should).

2. "The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide" by Douglas Adams

3. "Don Quixote" by Miguel de Cervantes

4. "Tom Sawyer" by Mark Twain

5. "The Odyssey" by Homer
