MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #44

When you vacation what type of vacation do you like to take (beach, historic, adventurous, food oriented, etc.)? submitted by Megan Dub-Yuh

I don’t know that any of our vacations have fit into neat categories. In the future, I would definitely like to take a food-oriented trip to New York City, though. Then you could, in the words of my hilarious mother-in-law, “roll me home from the table.” Yes, a vacation revolving around deliciousness would be right up our alley.

What is your best memory associated with a song (you know we all have tons!) submitted by Ramblings of a Marine Wife

Tough one. It’s hard to choose one memory from such a musical multitude as “the best.” A summertime memory that springs to mind involves “Bohemian Rhapsody” and a beach house filled to the brim with my extended family in various states of inebriation, all singing at the top of their lungs. There was headbanging, too — it was glorious.

Oh, now it’s in my head and the dang cats don’t know the words. Sigh.

If you had six months with no obligations or financial constraints, what would you do with your time? submitted by Married to the Army

Fly. A lot. Preferably someplace scenic, with a variety of cross-country locations within a reasonable distance for the fabled hundred-dollar hamburger.

What is one thing about you that people do NOT typically notice at first that you wish they would? submitted by Our Motto is Patience

Huh. I haven’t the foggiest notion what people do notice about me at first, much less what they fail to spot.

…submitted by The Three Turners: It’s a summer of sequels, and if you had to live in one of each of the following “worlds” (there are three total) which would you choose and why?

Oh, this kind of question can get incredibly complex for people who love speculative fiction as much as I do. I will deliberately keep things simple, lest I wind up writing a geektastic dissertation on the fictional universe in question, its peculiarities, and the minutiae dependent thereon. (You’re welcome.)

X-Men: Be a Mutant, what would your power be?

Something in the teleportation family would be an awfully handy power for a military spouse, don’t you think?

Harry Potter: Be a Witch or Muggle?

As if Angela Noelle’s recent post on her trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter wasn’t already feeding my dream of extremely belated Hogwarts admission! Now really, is it any contest? I’d pick magic any day of the week.

Twilight: Be a Vampire or Werewolf?

I have not read the books or seen the movies. The series I used to read about vampires and werewolves involved no sparkling whatsoever and rather more *cough* explicit paranormal sex. Oh, Laurell K. Hamilton, I do remember when your Anita Blake books actually bothered with plots, though. I lost interest when, somewhere along the way, the books transmuted from decent horror-ish stories to one scene of freaks gettin’ freaky after another.

If we broaden the scope of the question to include more generic vampires and werewolves (my favorites being found in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series), I’d prefer to shift my shape every full moon than make one permanent shift from living to bloodsucking undead.

Are you a military spouse/fiancée/fiancé/girlfriend/boyfriend? Hie thee to LTJG Wifey’s blog (and wish her a happy birthday!), snag the questions, and add yourself to the Mr. Linky for this week’s MilSpouse Friday Fill-In!

    I definitely recommend the NYC food trip! Also, there was a diner near my college that served a hundred dollar burger hamburger. They called it the bubbly burger and it was served with a bottle of Dom Perignon 🙂

    • Wow, that sounds pretty fancy! In aviation parlance, though, a “hundred-dollar hamburger” is typically a reasonably priced burger — the bulk of the cost is in flying to get to the restaurant. No tasty adult beverages of any sort are involved, alas, as you still have to fly back home. 😉
