The Rules:

1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.

I responded to [ profile] cheeky_duckie's posting of this meme. Her questions to me, and my answers:

1. What is your favorite album ever?

Gaah. I reeeallly can't pick. High on the list are ABBA Gold; American Pie by Don McLean; the Hikaru no Go and Revolutionary Girl Utena original soundtracks 1 and 2; much of Mercedes Sosa's Vengo a ofrecer mi corazón; Water from Another Time by John McCutcheon; If You Could Read My Mind by Gordon Lightfoot; Tracy Chapman's self-named album; Joan Baez in Concert; Peter, Paul and Mary's ten year anniversary recording; and a ton of musicals--Candide, Lost in the Stars, Fanny, Camelot, Music Man.... Also, Leonard Bernstein's Mass. (And I still feel sad for excluding many favorites!)

2. Do you drink tea?

Coffee's my current caffeine of choice, but I used to drink tea a lot, and still do sometimes. I love the ritual feeling of teapot and teacup, of pouring for others and for oneself. (And tea itself is tasty! More calming, somehow, than coffee.) I used to drink Celestial Seasonings' Morning Thunder all the time, but coffee has now supplanted it.

3. What genre is the majority of your book collection?

::Eyeing said book collection:: Er. The proportion of manga to other types has been increasing exponentially, but overall it's probably 60% novels (especially children's books and most particularly children's historical fiction), 30% nonfiction, and 10% manga. That's a very rough and unscientific estimate, however!

4. How do you feel about faith?

I would like to live up to my Quaker beliefs(to live them) a lot more than I feel I do currently. I think my faith may cycle through fallow periods--I hope that's what this is, and that I'll eventually return to a more Quakerly state of being.

5. Monkeys?

OOKIE! (I love the monkeyish character Tatsukichi from SuperGALS, who commands one's respect by the end of the manga/anime for having stuck with the charismatic, temperamental and supremely self-centered Ran through thick and thin. I'm also fond of Honda Hiroto from Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, who undergoes a brief but memorable stint as a robot monkey.)

And now: Come one, come all! Reply to this post and I'll pepper you with questions!
