Another questionnaire meme

I  was tagged to answer this by @musinshadw

I wanna tag @lucreziaborgia @petitedilly (French is fine if it means more likely you will answer) @anghraine @markedasinfernal  @starspray  @pageleaf @kanafinwhy – ten is too hard and I am spending too much time looking for people! Everyone pile on if you want to answer.

First name: Janet
Nicknames: Oshun (fannish pen name) Jenny when I was little, Mac in high school
Zodiac: Aires
Sexual orientation: het
Favorite fruit: bananas or strawberries or blueberries depending upon quality
Favorite season: Autumn
Favorite books: too many - lifelong–Jane Austen, Lord of the Rings, Silmarillion, I, Claudius, The Iliad, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Moby Dick, The Scarlet Letter, Mary Renault’s books, The Golden Notebook, The Idiot, War and Peace, etc., etc. Current favs (last few years) – Ellen Kushner’s Swordspoint books, Katherine Addison’s The Gobin Emperor, Megan Whalin Turner’s Queen’s Thief series, Sharon Kay Penman’s The Sun in Splendour, Hillary Mantel’s Wolf Hall series, etc., etc.
Favorite flowers: those rambling roses that spread all over a trellis and explode into a fully-blown state really fast–don’t know what they are called. We had a huge uncontrolled bunch covering a big trellis outside of our kitchen door in the house where I grew up.
Favorite animal: Horses.
Coffee/tea/coca: coffee is my addiction
Cat or dog person: meh–not that kind of pet person, I raised children instead and they absorbed all of my energy and affection
Favorite tumblr: this is impossible–I like a lot of different blogs for totally unrelated reasons–friendship, fandoms, fandom archives, history, special interests, art, travel photography, general aesthetics, even institutions like museums or associations
Dream trip: I’ve blown off a few that I missed and are no longer possible for me like a boat trip down the Amazon or a trek the length of the Silk Road! How about a summer in Tuscany or a boat trip down the Rhine (trying to think of places I have not been, not the known comfort spots I love).
Number of followers: it fluctuates just below 600. That seems like a glass ceiling for me–I obsessively prune porn-blog bots and the like–so there is NO padding.
