Waking up my brain with meme-age questions from solarfields

1: Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says:
Like Abednego, he was consigned to a fire which failed to burn him.
(from the entry Abraham in Jobes Dictionary of mythology, Folklore and Symbols - it is frequently the book closest to me, especially at my desk)
and yes, Faramir, I see you are sending me messages all day.

2: Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?:
cannister in which i keep sugar free gum, sitting on a pile of doujinshi next to kitsune-riding Faramir in armour

3: What is the last thing you watched on TV?:
Cowboy Bebop

4: WITHOUT LOOKING, guess what the time is:

5: Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?:

6: With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?:
Jim's computer, Jim typing
Frosty yodeling at his water dish

7: When did you last step outside? what were you doing?:
about 5pm. Driving over to Chris's to bring her medicine and see if she needed to be driven to the emergency room (doctor said wait 24 hours and see how she feels). After we made sure she was what is currently passing for ok, Jim took me for Lobster Bisque and on the way home, asked if I was too full to let him run in and see if there were new LoTR toys in Target (nothing we didn't have, alas. That stack of Gollums will be there forever... has no one caught on to who is buying this merchandise?)

8: Before you came to this website, what did you look at?:
photos I am collecting for icon fodder

9: What are you wearing?:
(hears mrkinch laughing) black jeans, man's grey sleeveless undershirt, grey ugs. I have powerpuff girl barrettes holding up my hair.

10: Did you dream last night?
yes, and though i don't remember what, I woke up singing the closing theme from InuYasha

just now at 18 lbs of cat telling Jim he has never, ever been fed

mostly books and action figures... I am in my geeknest.

I just watched a small boy eat spaghetti....

15: What is the last film you saw?:
Velvet Goldmine on DVD, Enigma on Sundance channel

16: If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?:
A house with a big library-office and an indoor pool so I could skip the hour drive to the gym and just swim.

17: Tell me something about you that I don't know:
I got my infamous leg scar when my mother accidentally dropped me through a fish tank at the age of three.

18: If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
elevate the job *teacher* to the reverence that is given to doctor or lawyer.

19: Do you like to dance?:

20: George Bush: is he a power-crazy nutcase or some one who is finally doing something that has needed to be done for years?:

I offer this for my answer - it is art Lee did for a game (sanctum?) and it is called "BrainWipe" (Lee will you get in trouble for me showing this? Tell me and I will take it down...)

21: Imagine your first second child is a girl, what do you call her?:
I never had kids, but possibly Nicola or Jamie, or I might have gone for (Valeria) Victrix

21: Imagine your first second child is a boy, what do you call him?:
Nicholas, Jamie, Victrix.... there is a good chance I would actually have named a boy Faramir.

22: Would you ever consider living abroad?:

and this from ramlatch

You are an Elementalist. Your magic stems from the
forces of nature. You might be a forest
nuturing Druid, a storm-creating Weather-Wizard
or any of the many Elementals, but one thing is
sure-- your bond with nature is strong. You can
rely heavily on nature to support yourself
aesthetically or physically for it lends you
both comfort and strength. Your instincts
rarely fail you. You are vibrantly passionate
but are sometimes carried away by your own
