meme yanked from chronarchy

Well, I guess since I answered chronarchy's meme, it's part of the bargain that I should post this in my LJ:

If you had me alone...locked up in your house for twenty-four hours and I had to do whatever you wanted me to, what would you do with me?

All replies will be permanently screened because it's a secret.

Then repost this in your LJ.

You might be surprised with the responses you get.

Comments: one and two

First, I'd like to thank everyone who participated in my Johari window meme. If any of you want to contribute, but feel too inhibited to put your name on something completely honest, feel free to contribute and leave random letters rather than an LJ name - kjhsd will work just fine, and I'm just too much of a meme-geek. So, anonymous is fine.

Second, Esperanto is fun. I've gotten back into an Esperanto kick, taking the free 10-lesson course based on the Esperanto League's old postal course, as well as downloading the multimedia program Kurso de Esperanto (also free).

Kurso just rocks. Instead of all reading and writing, the course is innundated with people speaking (and singing) Esperanto, which seems to tap different neural pathways for me. After a half-hour lesson, I feel like I'm in a different space, my mind echoing changing phrases and flowing with different syntax. I feel like studying language engages parts of my brain that make me feel good, make me feel awake and creative. It may just be the stimulation that comes from trying something new, but then it may be something directly related to the language itself - some studies suggest that studying Esperanto first makes learning other languages easier -- I'm curious...

Anyway, that's my life.

Meme theft

This is an interesting meme I lifted from julianhill (adding "Community" curiosity):

1) Go to my userinfo page.

2) Pick one person (or community) on my friends list you're curious about.

3) Comment with their username.

4) And I will tell all about them (I reserve the right to determine what constitutes "tell all about them").

5) Now post this in your journal, see who is curious about whom. (this step is optional - friends don't make friends do memes! :P)

FINALLY FINISHED!!!

Interview questions from celticfeministw
1. All people have the capacity to be selfless and selfish. What do you consider to be one of your most selfless acts? What do you consider one of your most selfish?
2. Assuming one can truly what know his/her biggest fear is, what would you consider your biggest fear?
3. I quoted Mussolini in my journal once. He had said "Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power." Do you believe this is true? Do you see it happening here in America? Provide an example to support either argument.
4. In your interests, you list "my cat." What interests you about your cat? How did you come to have your cat in your life?
5. Also in your interests, you list "chocolate." What's your favorite chocolate (i.e. white, dark, milk, etc.) Related to that - what's your favorite chocolate "dish"?

Next, interview questions from ghoulchick
1) So tell me more about this bookcrossing business. So you send a book out into the world and then... ? Is it supposed to come back to you? Is there some way you track what happens to the book, like they track dollar bills at Where's George? How does it differ from my field site, where they hand out books to kids at office visits? Also, have you met astrablue from my friends list? She's doing bookcrossings, too.
2) I've known you for a good while now. What don't I know about you that you wish I did know? Or that you think I ought to know?
