    Would I be correct in assuming that the latter is U and the former non-U? Or is it non-U even to make that joke?

    Tortilla chips and guacamole.

    the most tiresome:

    Keeping Up Appearances
    nationalism
    middle-class chauvinism
    that horrible all-star Knebworth concert from 1990
    docudramas about British royalty

    Have you been reading The Torygraph again?

    They're all awful, horrible, unspeakable things with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

    Better lead performance in The Remains of the Day:

    Emma Thompson
    Anthony Hopkins

    I was a Christopher Hitchens fangirl many years ago.

    Hopkins (but it's close).

    Better performance in Howards End:

    Emma Thompson
    Anthony Hopkins

    I'll go with Hopkins.

    My brother just left this voidy artifact in my study: its a vinyl record of Rachmaninoff: Verpers The U.S.S.R. Russian Chorus. Led by Aleksander Sveshnikov, its a collection of nighttime choir pieces. Beautifully haunting...

    Choral Music:
    I can't stand it.
    It usually bores me
    I am not educated on the subject to know whether or not I like it.
    Fascinating and Inspiring.

    Oh, I love Rachmaninoff's Vespers, siouxdonym my sweet. It's so gloriously gloomily Russian. Lovely lovely lovely.

    Fascinating and inspiring. Verdi's Requiem, Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, Mozart's Requiem - OK not Miki's disco version........

    If you could live a hundred years in the past or a hundred years in the future, which would you choose?

    That's quite a collection you've got there, Buzz.

    T.S. Eliot

    Listening to audiobooks or 'real' reading?

    I've never "read" an audiobook.

    Breakfast:
    large and sumtuous
    lean and meager
    well rounded and nutritious
    whatever you can get your hands on..
    can't stomach much in the morning...
    pop tarts.
    none.

    Depends on my mood, but since I am usually work night shifts, mornings means dinner time to me. So big and sumptuous would be my pick.

    Cajun Kale and Rice.

    So, which college should I apply to attend in the fall 1999 semester?

    Warren Wilson College (Because I really need to get my farmwork on before my nineteenth birthday.)
    New College of the University of South Florida (No grades, just detailed evaluations by each professor.)
    Deep Springs College (After being rejected on irrefutable grounds of my gender and unimpressive record, I'll sue their asses and ruin everything.)
    purple It's over, man.

    Laundry room
    Any other room you've got

    That's funny. They all work for me. I also like the dress. And the speed.
