Because it's Friday night, and I'd like to go to bed thinking I've done at least one productive thing today, apart from pay my phone bill, here are my answers to that 5-question meme. You know the one. These questions are from the lovely [livejournal.com profile] lizstarsky. Also, if you want me to ask you some questions in turn, just comment and I'll try to think some up for you! ^_^

1. Is there any place in the world that you've never traveled to, but you'd really like to visit? If so, where, and why do you want to go there?

The question should probably be, are there any places I don't want to visit? XD Seriously, though, there are lots of places I'd love to go to. If I could go anywhere right this moment, it would be either Singapore (with its mix of Chinese, Malaysian and Indian cultures, the food has got to be amazing, right?) or back to China, to see the south-east of the country. I loved China, and two weeks was far too short a time there. I love the language(s), I love the food, it's beautiful, I really liked the people, and I just felt really comfortable there. The only thing I disliked, in fact, was the pollution. And certain tourists.

(There are many, many more places I'd like to visit, such as the Scandinavian countries, Mongolia and other central Asian countries, Thailand, Laos, and the list goes on and on, but in the interest of keeping this short...)

2. What kind of old woman would you like to be? :P (E.g., the jolly grandma type? The crazy old lady who talks to her millions of cats? The you're-only-as-old-as-you-feel granny who scales mountains and goes skydiving? Etc. :P)

This is a really cool question!

I'd like to be the kind of old woman who doesn't care what people think of her, who does her own thing, and who can inspire younger people to get out and do the stuff they want to do. You know, the kind of woman that makes you think, "Wow, I hope I can be a cool old lady like her someday." Cats would be involved, of course. =^_^=

3. If you had the power to change one thing about the world, what would you change?

Where, oh where to begin? I'd like for people everywhere to be more tolerant of each other's differences; I think that would go a long way toward solving a lot of other problems.

4. Does Tabitha eat moths? If yes, can I borrow her during the summer to work as Special Agent In Charge of Destroying the Moth Colony In My Cabinets? If no, do you eat moths?

The one or two times there's been a moth fluttering about my apartment, Tabitha got very excited about it. I'm sure that if one flew close enough, she'd have no choice but to follow the prompting of thousands of years of instincts and eat it, but whether or not she'd decide it was an experience worth repeating... I doubt she'd like the commute to Chiba, either way!

As for myself, I can't say I've ever felt the desire to eat moths.

5. If you could have any super power, what super power would you want to have, and how would you use it?

Being able to understand, speak and read any language would be awesome, and would make travelling a hell of a lot easier! Not to mention, I'd be able to enjoy books in their original language.
