03/19/2004 Entry: "Friday Five"
1. ...owned a restaurant, what kind of food would you serve?
Japanese, baby! I'd hire Joji to be my Almighty Sushi God, thus insuring that Teri would visit me every single year without fail and stay for an extra three weeks. Besides the sushi bar (which would have plenty of elbow room, thank you very much), I'd have regular tables and a few large rooms for parties and a whole downstairs cellar-type floor for uber-large private parties where we'd serve traditional Japanese food in addition to sushi. Oh, and we'd be open for breakfast, too, not just lunch and dinner. Mmm~ Steaming hot rice, miso soup with wakame and tofu and a sprinkling of sliced green onions, salt-grilled mackerel with grated daikon radish, and a little dish of pickles...takuwan, probably. Oh, and for an extra $1.50 you can have natto with a raw quail egg on the side. *PURRRRRRR* Oh God, I'm hungry now...
2. ...owned a small store, what kind of merchandise would you sell?
Books. Lots and lots of good books. Classic non-fiction, poetry, reference, art and architecture, history, cooking, gardening, a whole room full of Chicken Soup books...oh, but no romance novels. And not a single copy of "Shogun" or "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." I refuse. But good customers will receive free copies of "Les Miserables." I will also sell lots and lots of good coffee at the little coffee bar.
3. ...wrote a book, what genre would it be?
Swords and sorcery style fantasy with a dash of cyber punk and a generous dollop of medieval/early Renaissance.
4. ...ran a school, what would you teach?
English, heavy on the spelling and grammar. Mathematics, with the stuff you'll actually use in life being required, and the stuff 99% of the population will never need being an option to those children who want to become rocket scientists when they grow up. History, giving each major country just as much study time as America gets. Science, giving Creation as much time as the theory of evolution. Biology, with Wild Kingdom reruns every Friday. Physical education, with one day a week devoted to studying nutrition. Housekeeping, with courses on smart shopping, simple meal cooking, general clothing and furniture repair, and other things that children shouldn't move out of home without knowing. All the students eat in a main hall, and the boys stand up when a female approaches or leaves the table, and all the students stand up when an adult approaches or leaves the table. No one graduates without passing a basic etiquette course.
5. ...recorded an album, what kind of music would be on it?
That idea is so alien to me that I can't come up with a serious answer. Um...Christmas hymns by a 1,000 strong boy's choir? *tries harder* classical piano solos? Good old beefy heavy metal? Contemporary Christian pop? *begins to degenerate* "Oh Holy Night" recorded twenty times on one CD? Whale belches from around the world? The shrieks of the damned arranged with a remix of the Hokey Pokey? *gives up*

*LOL* Darling, you could live in the middle of an active volcano, and yet if I had the money to, I'd visit you at least once a month. Unfortunantly, money isn't free. T_T And neither are trips to California...
Hey, you gotta new Tahoe! Drive out here and pick me up, beeyatch! XD I'll spring for a tank of gas. ^_~
