It's Time for Holidailies!
Ten Things About My Cancer

Sunday Stealing for Holidailies


Only the second day of Holidailies, and already I'm defaulting to a meme! At least it's Sunday Stealing and it's Sunday, so I'll use that as my excuse.

Classical: If you were an Olympian god, what would you be known for?
I would known for doing Olympian godlike things.

Byzantine: Do you prefer gold or silver accessories?
I have no preference. I own more silver, but I also like gold. Back in the 80s, I had my "colors" done; I'm apparently an "Autumn." As an Autumn, I'm supposed to look better in gold jewelry, but really - who the hell cares? Silver is beautiful, I can afford it, and therefore I wear it.

Medieval: Are you religious?
If "religious" means "follows an organized religion," then no, I'm not religious. I do believe in a form of higher power, and I do believe that everything in the universe is connected. I do not believe in a separate, male, humanoid God. I believe that the founders of the world's major organized religions understood this power and could connect to it. I'm not making much sense here, so I'll just say that the best statement of my spiritual beliefs is here.

Gothic: What is your favourite historic building?
Newgrange, the passage tomb in Ireland. Maybe it's not a "building" in the classic sense, but humans built it over 5000 years ago.

Renaissance: Have you ever had a time in your life when you felt enlightened or changed?
Yes. I was tripping one evening with friends, floating on a waterbed and listening to Pink Floyd (I know, I know) when I suddenly Got The Joke and laughed with joy and glee. Unfortunately, I forgot the punch line, but I sure do remember the feeling.

Baroque: Do you enjoy the finer things in life?
Who doesn't? Then again, I suppose that depends on your definition of "the finer things in life."

Rococo: Is your bedroom full or trinkets and pictures? If so, which pictures adorn your walls?
Yes, it is. I have several paintings on the walls, a print that I inherited from my aunt (it's where I got my Facebook profile picture), and my Clown College graduation picture. I also have a feather fan, a clown figurine, a couple of clown-like masks, and a poster of the Tree of Life.

Neoclassicism: If something came back into fashion, what do you hope it would be?
Bell bottom jeans - not boot cut, bell bottom. I loved wearing bell bottoms.

Romanticism: Do you often see things in a positive light?
I am a relentless optimist. It's very annoying sometimes.

Pre-Raphaelite: Which book would you like to see turned into a film?
Summer Lightning, by P.G. Wodehouse.

Impressionism: Do you look for details or take everything in at once?
Hmm. I think I probably take everything in at once, then I notice the details.

Art Nouveau: When were you last at the theatre?
Why, just today! Joe and I saw Dinner at Eight, a classic! It stars John Barrymore, Lionel Barrymore, Billie Burke, Jean Harlow, Wallace Beery, and the great Marie Dressler, who does the best double take in the world at the end of the movie.

Surrealism: Why does the porcupine think it's a duck?
To get to the other side.

Pop Art: Do you enjoy pop culture?

Contemporary: What did you do today?
See the "Art Nouveau" answer. We also had an early supper at the brewpub across the street from the theater. They had on the late 60s-early 70s music package playing, so we got to groove to Little Feat, Grateful Dead, Joe Cocker, Robert Palmer, Van Morrison, Blind Faith, and more. It was a sobering thought to realize that the servers and bartenders were not even born when this music was popular. Hah!
