What secret indulgence do you act on while your spouse is away? (from Devil Dog Darling)
I will quite cheerfully pour myself a glass of wine and settle in for an evening of reading bad fanfiction.
Man, that’s embarrassing. I should have made up something saucier.
If you were a spice, what would you be? (from New Girl On Post)
I don’t have a good answer for this one. The question asks which spice I would be, but I think I’d rather choose an herb. However, I am not having much success wrangling my pedantic tendencies into submission this morning, so I find myself unable to tell you what kind of leaf I am when I ought to be choosing which bark, seed, root, or fruit I am.
My undergarments remain supportive whether my husband is here or not.
Family and Twitter work wonders when I’m not making lame lingerie jokes.
I am not sure. The oldest T-shirt I own (and regularly wear) is bright red and from the theatre at which my parents were working when they met. Mom was an actress, Dad was a techie. It was a match made in heaven, if heaven is a place where patrons are encouraged to boo, hiss, and throw popcorn at the villains.
How did you envision your future pre-military? (from Daddy’s Duty)
How far pre-military do we want to go? If you asked four-year-old Nth, you would hear about a fascinating projected career as a paleontologist. From about first grade onward, you would be regaled with plans for becoming a marine biologist specializing in cetaceans, particularly in orca communication. Post-freshman year of high school, during which I had a phenomenally lousy biology teacher, my interest in computer science began to solidify alongside an interest in the Russian language. I thought I might wind up working for the State Department or some other federal government agency (a career aspiration not uncommon when growing up in the DC-Metro area.
I had an inkling that my future might involve the military when I started dating my now-husband during my junior year of high school, as he had already gotten an appointment to the United States Naval Academy. As we continued dating and eventually came to the conclusion that we were probably going to wind up married, it became clear that my career would not be as simple as staying in DC to seek a government job. I still struggle with that a little bit, as I have not yet made the leap into wholehearted pursuit of alternate career ideas.
