I'd be Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, throwing Famke Janssen as Dark Phoenix up against a wall.

Taste. I'd lose sweet/sour/bitter/salty/umami, but I'd keep most flavours because they're primarily smell.

Country, definitely. Fresh air and space. Room to make noise.

I hope it doesn't get locked! But it does sound more like a forum game. But I don't want to get sucked to forum games again! It's a horrible time waster! Nooooo!!!

Regardless, what is your favorite thing about yourself, that you think others don't perceive about you? What aspect of you would you like other people to find out about that they don't already?

Well, most people don't perceive that I'm very mischievous and adventurous in bed, but that's not exactly a fact that I'd want to advertise. I *am* proud of it, however. I think I'd want more people to find out that I'd never yell at them in public. I seem like someone who's really outspoken and says what's on her mind, but I almost never get mad and yell at anyone.

When checking the fora for the first time in a morning, or when reading the news - a few dozens. Regularly, around four or so at work (GMail, fora, maybe a random webcomic and something actually work related :) ).

Would you rather have the power to turn invisible or the power to fly?

The last liquid I had was a good liter and a half of coca-cola minimum; and I predict that the next drink I have will be the remainder of that bottle.

What is your current relationship status and are you pleased with it?

Probably when Cheese and Polly got "mod" powers in The Big 47. Dangerous times, those were. Which wasn't that far back, to be honest, but its one that occurred when I was actually a regular around these parts.

The ashes and snow collection of photographs ranks really high up there for me. You can see it here.

Do you pick the boat, or the mystery box?

Depends on the setting. If I'm in some horror story, definitely the boat - you never know what the mystery box can hold... But, if it's a regular gameshow, I guess the box? Also, depends on what I know if its history. But a boat doesn't interest me that much.

I think I'd be pretty much speechless, mostly because of the implications of all of this (supernatural stuff exists etc.). Then I'd beg my way into the Scooby gang.

Say you have a year off and 3,000,000$ you may only spend during this year (but you get to keep what you bought with it). What would you do?

Buy property, it's the bottom of the property market after all. Buy as much as I possibly could with good advice, and form a charitable trust to manage the rental income and equity into a foundation to look after whatever I decided was a good cause.

I went on a climbing trip where I was doing some trad climbing and it was apparently x-rated (possibility of serious injury or death). I sent the route by the skin of my teeth, and so I felt like a bad-ass, but it could have been really bad.

Tought question d33p. I can throw out lust right away. I don't think that really describes me. The rest can to various degrees, but I'd say the top 2 are wrath and envy. Gluttony isn't really right, neither is greed. pride is... close but not really true, and neither is sloth. But I'd say envy's probably number 1. Actually maybe pride is 2.
