So, about Abraham's Daughter: thanks for answering my question, AB! Personally, I thought of the song more specifically as referring to the very end of the games. Isaac would be Peeta, and Katniss is still the daughter, and her raising her bow signifies when she raises the berries, challenging the Capitol to make a decision: they can either have both of them or neither of them. Of course, that's looking at a pretty strict correlcation between the Hunger Games and the song. That's just the scene I pictured when I thought of the lyrics.
So I'm gonna move on to Question Tuesday now, for the sake of getting this posted in a timely manner:
If Sarasite is your superhero name, what's your supervillain name?
Ummmm. Cuddle bear?
If you could witness any event past, present, or future, what would it be?
Can I see the Creation of the Universe? That would be epic :)
If you had to work on only one project for the next year, what would it be?
Project? I'm not sure what you mean by that. The only "projects" I do are for school. And this, I guess. Probably this, then. It's fun :)
What movies, TV shows, or books have made you cry or tear up?
- My Sister’s Keeper. I watched that with my mom, and we were both reaching for Kleenexes pretty much the whole movie through.
- Deathly Hallows (the book) the part at the end when Harry uses the stone just killed me. I can’t remember what other specific parts made me cry. Probably a couple of the deaths.
- House series finale. Stop reading if you haven’t seen it and plan to. I mean, I had a feeling things would take a pretty Sherlock-y turn, but I just felt so bad for all the people at the funeral! Especially Wilson.
There’ve probably been several others, but Ican’t think of them right now. But hey! I have one from each category, and it wasn’t even on purpose! Isn’t that cool?
Update: I watched Single Father a few days ago cause it has David Tennant and Scottish-ness, and the first episode about killed me :/
What is something you learned in the last week?
That cardboard TARDISes are cool :)
What story does your family always tell about you?
Probably the one about when my mom tried to take away my pacifiers. Apparently I really liked them, like I could have 2 in my mouth and still talk really clearly, so when my mom decided I was getting too old for them, she thought it would be tough to take them away. I seemed to be doing ok, but then one day she found me behind the couch with two of them in my mouth, which I’d apparently been stashing in anticipation of losing them.
What is your first memory from your existence?
I sort of remember when I was little and decided to try and cut my hair with Barbie doll scissors (fyi- it worked). I was probably 3 or 4ish? I remember walking over to my mom and holding up my hair, saying, “Look, Mommy! It works on people hair, too!”
What is your favorite Bible verse?
I don’t know, there are too many to choose from.
What's your favorite quote, aside from a Bible verse?
Again, too many to choose from. I’m
o good at favorite questions!
Along with the 7 dwarfs question, assign each of us (the 8 of us on this blog...and Dwain because he felt left out last week in the casting) one of the Disney princesses based on our personalities.LOL
Shelby- Jasmine, cause she sings A Whole New World wonderfully, and she loves kitties, so Raja would be in good hands
Amy- Sleeping Beauty, for obvious reasons :)
Sara- Belle, cause I like to read, and it’s my list, so I can be whoever I want to :D
Rachael- Cinderella, cause Rachael’s the fashionable one, so I can imagine her in the beautiful ball gown, dancing the night away with her Prince Charming
Anna Beth- Rapunzel, cause she’d probably kill me if I didn’t give her her favorite… :P
Jill- Pocahantas, cause she’s the outdoorsy animal lover
Amber- Ariel, since she did tell me once that she was a mermaid…
Sanaa- Tiana, since the whole “I don’t need no man, I can succeed all on my own!” philosophy reminds me of her. Not that I disagree with said philosophy, I just like to imagine Sanaa saying that.
Dwain- Mulan, cause he’s going to Japan, and that’s the same thing as China, right? :P Plus it was either that or Snow White, and he refused to be in our Soot Gray movie…
Why is it that I’m your favorite when I ask questions? Is it because I don’t ask often?
You know, I’m pretty sure the only other time you asked me a question, I didn’t make you favorite. So that doesn’t make sense. And besides that, you were one of only two question askers, so your chances were pretty good. And it shouldn’t even be necessary for you to ask this question, seeing as I addressed it when I made you favorite in the first place.
How often do you check for questions? Do you check compulsively so you can have the most time to think if they’re philosophical or do you wait until the night
I wouldn’t say “compulsively”… I do check a lot, though. I like to have the majority of my blog written well in advance, so I pretty much spend the whole week checking for questions and working on answers. Which is why, when I found Anna Beth’s questions from last week and saw that a lot of them would require pretty lengthy/thoughtful answers, I opted to save them for this week instead of using the several hours of the day I had left to go on and include them in the blog.
Have you been practicing your hiragana?
Yeah! Though I feel kind of bad: because of you, another writing system is being subjected to my awful penmanship…
And an easy question: How many questions have I asked? (both overall and this
Overall, it’s looking like 11. (the one about losing accents when you sing, 6 from last week, and 4 for this week). I don’t really see the point in this question…
What questions haven’t been asked?
All questions haven’t been asked. Except the ones that have. (That’s some Captain Jack logic right there)
Can there be too much justice?
Certainly. You may have heard the definitions of mercy and grace - mercy is when we don’t get what we do deserve, while grace is when we do get what we don’t deserve. Neither of these is justice. If we had to pay for every bad thing we ever did, all of us would be in big trouble, but because God shows mercy, we can be forgiven and not have to receive the punishment we deserve, even though said punishment would be perfectly just.
How do you feel about oatmeal?
I’ve had it a couple of times, and I wasn’t a big fan. I haven’t tried a lot of different flavors, though, so I may like it if I had the right kind.
What do you see yourself doing in 3 months?
Going back to school… blech, I don’t want to think about that yet!
How does it feel to be 20?
Well, since turning 20 coincided almost perfectly with starting work, I feel like being 20 is a lot more grown up and responsibility-filled than being a teenager was…
Do you feel old? Especially now that Will O’Connor has graduated?
No. Though it does seem pretty surreal that my baby brother isn’t in school anymore :/
Why does it take so long for a new Lizzie Bennett video to be released?
Because they love to torture us :(
Which is your favorite of the endings to the last Lord of the Rings movie?
I said this after we finished watching the movie, but I liked the wedding ending :)
Answer all the questions from Hank’s Table Topics video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NY9pOVz28WM&feature=g-u-u)
So many questions… Here goes:
Do you live more in the past, the present, or the future?
Unfortunately, I am neither a Time Lord nor his companion, so I’m stuck in the present.
What quality do you think is most important in marriage?
Being unselfish: caring for the other person’s needs.
What’s your dream job?
Teaching and getting paid a good amount of money for it :P
What one question would you ask a psychic?
How many people are actually going to freak out on December 21st, 2012?
If money were no object, what kind of party would you throw and where?
I’d use it to fund a long term party where my friends and I drove to all the places we’ve ever wanted to visit in America, stopping at VidCon in the middle. We’d also have to have a jet or a
boat or something to get to all the cool places we wanted to visit outside of the country.
If you could be a famous athlete, who would you be?
Why would I want to be a famous athlete? That sounds like a really boring thing to be…
What’s the most significant problem facing the world?
If you owned a boat, what would you choose to name it?
I don’t name inanimate objects.
Which piece of land would you wish to preserved forever?
What do you miss about childhood?
That it was ok to be apathetic, since your parents made all the decisions anyway :P
What remains undone that you’ve wanted to get done for years?
I don’t know? I mean, I’m only 20. I don’t think I have that problem as of yet.
What one goal do you hope to accomplish this year?
Get better at being a good Christian and doing the right things.
More Anna Beth:
If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do?
I dunno, spy on people? It’d be pretty fun, but I don’t think I have a set list of stuff to do. Maybe I’d take after Harry and just stare at the lack of reflection in the mirror all day.
So this week’s winner… Jill!
Although, technically, her questions came from the Vlogbrothers, who got them from Table Topics, so they’re the real winners. Jill can accept the prize for them, though :P So, have a good week everybody, and give me Questions please!
