*List 3-5 Positive Things About Yourself: I work hard. I try hard. I make people laugh.
*List 3-5 Negative Things About Yourself: I am absent-minded. I procrastinate. I get nervous.
*Ambitions for the Future: Own my own house. Write a novel. Travel.
*If you could live in any time period, what would it be and why? Now.
*Describe your idea adventure: My idea of an adventure it to go to a new city with my husband and explore everything without a real plan. We would just go where the day takes us. Have drinks. Go shopping. Meat people. Eat good food. Dance. Play games. Then go home :)

*Passive or Aggressive: Aggressive sometimes... passive when it does not matter to me.
*Selfish or Generous: Both. I am self-centered sometimes I think... but I am very generous. I am a teacher in a preschool in a low-income area and I spend half my paycheck making fun activities for us!!!
*Old Fashioned or Modern: Both. I love old-fashioned things but I am a modern person.
*Do You Prefer to work: Alone or With Others: Both. I'm sorry I keep answering both but I am multifaceted. I work ALONE best! I like working alone best... I get more accomplished. But it is lonely and people tell me that I am really easy and fun to work with. I am good at organizing people too... I was the Editor of a local Arts/Culture newspaper last year and I was good at motivating people.
*Rules are Meant to be: Broken or Followed: Do your own thing until someone tells you differently.

The Book/Movie and You
*Do you prefer the book or movie? I loooooooooooooooooooove the book. I really, really, really like the movie. I cry when I watch it. One time I went to my room and cried for about 30 minutes after it was over.
*Favorite film version/actor or actress from a certain version: I like Claire Danes and Wynona Ryder.
*Who is your favorite character and why? Jo, because I relate to her.
*Who is your least favorite character and why? I guess Meg because she just seems kind of boring.
*Do you have a favorite part of the movie? The beautiful scene with the baby and making the bread and the beautiful scene in the rain outside at the end. The cinematography is beautiful.
*Favorite quote and why? Amy says, "We all grow up sometime." It is sad but true. Their childhood was idealized and Jo wanted it to go on forever but the theme is that things must change... all the women went their separate ways. I also like it when Beth says, "I am not afraid. I can be brave like you." Gets me every time.
*If Jo were to write a thrilling operatic tragedy, what kind of character would you like to play? (i.e.: the damsel in distress, the hero, the villain, a magical creature such as a troll or hag, etc.) I like playing The Villain because it is fun to pretend to be evil. I am a ham and I like to act it up.
