This is from Sideon, although i didn't like the instructions: Share eight possible reactions to the various possible and impossible circumstances. That makes it sound like each question should have eight answers. I'm just going to do an answer per question. Enjoy.
1 - What would you do if you came into a lot of money?
That's the dream, right? To become fabulously wealthy without having to do anything to get there. So if that happened by inheriting money from my poverty-stricken redneck family or winning the lottery or whatever:
First I'd set up college funds so the kids could get any kind of education they desire. Then I'd buy a nice, comfortable house here in the city, and then I'd pour a bit of money into my business to grow it to a proper size in order to hire a manager. Then I'd write. Those are my big dreams.
2 - What would you do if you were invited to a nude gathering/party/wedding, etc.?
I'd strip down of course.
3 - You dream of an disaster approaching in three days (tornado, hurricane, earthquake, meteor). What do you do, if anything?
I write it down and try to figure out if there's a story in it. I don't believe it'll come true.
4 - You get to choose the Vice Presidential candidate for John McCain. Who do you choose to help him win or lose, and why?
I choose Mitt Romney because win or lose it brings more attention to Mormonism and helps me draw attention to my story, Alma the Lamanite.
5 - You are in a witness protection program. Who do you decide to be, where will you live, and what profession will you choose?
I own a bar in Anchorage, Alaska. I'm Jan Svengarden and I've had a voice coach teach me to speak with a Swedish accent (which is uncomfortable when someone speaks to me in Swedish and I just nod my head).
6 - You made reservations at a swanky restaurant. You are seated. The host screws up and brings someone famous that you happen to admire… to sit with you. Who’s the surprise company, and what’s your reaction?
Ian Stewart. She sits him down and I introduce myself and we discuss various personalities in the field of mathematics and literature - and science fiction. I try to get a better understanding of parallel universe theories from him.
7 - Your senses merge and you see colors and visions when you listen to music, particularly choir ensembles or classical. What do you see when you hear your favorite piece?
So, I have synesthesia and weird visions. I see the future and I see the keys that I need to form a new religious cult where I can convince my followers of all manner of ridiculous beliefs and have them perform amazing acts of self-sacrifice, all to my benefit.
8 - Describe how you are lucky.
I am lucky because I have been able to overcome every obstacle in my life thus far. I'm lucky because I'm pretty good at figuring things out, learning quickly. I have a great family and my kids are good looking and above average. Sugar is the most amazing woman who understands me better than I understand myself. I have great friends and people who not only support me, but give me a kick in the ass when I get off track with respect to my goals. I'm lucky that I can write things down and people come to read what I've written.
