London, and one day I will live in London until I am tired of being there...

Those days when I have nothing on my plate, the tiny tot wakes up late, Chris is in a good mood and all we do is hang out and chill, we don't even notice that the TV isn't on...
To what faults do you feel most indulgent?
My need to watch television, movies and play on the computer
Who are your favorite heroes of fiction?
Well, I'm so glad that this question is plural...Mr. Darcy, Romeo, Almasy, Nick Rhoads, Rob Gordon...you know those guys who aren't afraid to be weak when they need to be...and, who, in their own way, love

Hannibal and the Elephants, JFK, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams...frick, well, all the Founding Fathers, Alexander the Great, Queen Victoria

Who are your favorite heroines of fiction?
Any of those strong female roles, that after reading make me a stronger female :)

Oh, like you don't know who that is by now...U2
The quality you most admire in a man?
The ability to make someone laugh
The quality you most admire in a woman?
Honesty (it's so hard for us to do that without being catty)

Your favorite occupation?
I assume that by the way Proust answered this that 'occupation' is meant to be pasttime, so I'm answering it as such...reading, sleeping, playing with the kidlet, more sleeping...
Who would you have liked to be?
Myself, who else is there for me to be
PS. I am too sick to write anything else...I hate being sick and more than that I hate being sick and not being able to sleep...maybe I'll just go into town and buy some Theraflu...
