//because I’ve been terrible at making starters regularly I’ll be linking some of you a few at a time this week (so tags don’t get eaten by tumblr!) to the terribad one I wrote last night—there’s no obligation to tag to it, really! In fact if you already gave DI Riley a starter/greeting post, link me via fanmail again and I’ll do my best to get to it this week~ or if you want to, go ahead and tag to this one anyway, or wait till I make another one! 

Okay I’m getting punchy and Hemingwayesque with my writing (a side effect of not sleeping at all last night!), and I’ve got to get ready for school anyway, so, uh, HI! and um, I’ll be back from school after around 3:30 pm Pacific time. Hopefully my queue will have notified EVERY ONE OF YOU there’s a starter by then. 

Again, there’s no obligation to tag the link, especially if we’ve already had a couple threads.

Och, these’re good ones Penny, make me think!

#8 In the animal kingdom, which animal would you be? I’ve never really thought about et. I’ve ‘ad dreams* abou’ bein’ a dog before. Deerhound specifically. Though I dunno, mebbe I’d be more’f a collie or terrier? [Mun thinks ostrich or emu sometimes. That FACE!]

#24 Clubbing or candlelight dinner? Candlelight dinner’s a wee pretentious, don’t ye thenk? Though I’d take tha’ over clubbin’. I’ve run intae too many folks I’ve encounter’d on th’ job when I go tae some clubs.

#49 Do you plan your life or live for the moment? Et’s a mix ‘f both, really. I’m no’ sure ‘f the ratio exactly, bu’ I let thengs happen ‘s well as plan ou’ m’life.

#51 If you were marooned on an island, what are the five things you would take with you? Good lord this one’s gonnae be hard. Er, a pocket knife, an intact parachute wi’ th’ cords an’ everythin’, an’ a hat. Erm, probably Marcel Proust’s A La Recherche Du Temps Perdu—somethin’ I’ve never read an’ et’s useful tae pass th’time, yknow. An’ mebbe a solar DVD player preloaded wi’ the entire seven series ‘f The West Wing.

#59 If you knew you were right, would you take a stand even if you know you would make a scene in public or would you let it go? I’d take a stand ef I knew I was right, aye.
