Impossible question! I'm physically like neither, but admire both for similar reasons. Kate had a highly individualized, often boyish style of dress, Audrey was the ultimate lady but could wear anything. Both were highly talented and prolific women. Slight advantage to Audrey because she was married to Mel Ferrer, on whom I bestowed my first childhood crush when I was about 8, just after seeing War and Peace.
Summer at the beach or winter on the slopes?
Neither. Grew up at the beach, so been there, done that. Don't ski well, so that's out. The ideal summer would be spent traveling in Europe with huz Dan ... that has yet to happen, but anything is possible. Yes. I believe that.
If you could be any character from a Disney movie, who would you be?
Another deceptively difficult question, Susan. Disney has a character for every cultural archetype imaginable, in every possible variation! But I'd have to go with Tinker Bell from Peter Pan. Who wouldn't want to be a delicate fairy creature, immortal, whizzing around Never-Never Land? Truth is, though, I'm much closer to Jesse the Yodeling Cowgirl from Toy Story 2. Ouch. Sigh.
What is your perfect Sunday afternoon?
Champagne-loaded brunch with my huz at somewhere wonderful, a little shopping and an art museum or two, ending with dinner with the huz at the best Japanese restaurant in the world. Not much to ask, is it?
Chocolate or Lemon?
Chocolate always, except for fish topping and in iced-tea.
Are you content to sit in traffic, or do you feel compelled to find a jam-free route?
We don't have traffic in Arkansas. Arkansans think we do, but we don't.
Would you rather read a book or watch a movie?
Reading, by a length. I must read every day, and have at least one book going (it's a compulsion) but I don't get to watch as many movies as I'd like ... I'm an old movie buff, and love the new ones.
If you could travel back in time, what era would you choose?
Almost any era could be fun, but I'd have to be rich as Croesus. It's not fun to be poor in any era.
What did you have for lunch today?
One slice of whole-grain, flourless bread, spread with hummus spiced with red-pepper flakes and topped with red bell pepper slices. And diet ginger-ale. That's my lunch most days.
What is your idea of a perfect picnic? Food choices and location please?
Cold lobster, prosciutto and sun-dried tomatoes in cold pasta salad, real hard-crust French baguette and cold, hard butter. Two bottles of a really good Red Zinfandel, dark, dry and peppery as sin. At the Shakespeare Garden at the Huntington Library in San Marino, Ca. And a chauffeur to take us back to our hotel.
If you went on a trip and had to utilize three different methods of transportation, which three would you choose?
QE2 ( this is fantasy, isn't it?) horseback in Provence, ending with the Orient Express. To the end of the line, of course.
3. Who's you favorite Doctor Who?
4. On the same theme .... favorite Captain of the starship Enterprise.
5. Game of Thrones or Game of the Week?
6. If you could have pick one public figure (living or non) to be a regular reader and of your blog, who would it be?
7. Favorite guilty-pleasure band, any era.
8. Dog, cat, or both? Or neither?
9. If you could have any sound wake you up in the morning, what would it be?
10. What did you want to be when you grew up?
11. Considering the current economy ... what is your fantasy choice for your post-retirement, second career?
