Taking things from friends' journals

First off, I find I am:

Pirate Monkey's Harry Potter Personality Quiz
Harry Potter Personality Quiz
by Pirate Monkeys Inc.

I don't know if this test is a very true one of this type, though, because many many many of the questions did not have the actual answer I would have given, and I simply chose the more likely of the two.

If you...

1. ...owned a restaurant, what kind of food would you serve?
I want to own a small bakery, possibly a lunch counter sort of place. I want to be able to bake all the things I want to bake and not have to either eat them all myself (which leads to problems) or throw them away (which is sad). I love to bake and I have no one to eat my baked goods. Then if I had said bakery, I could even go to culinary school and learn the trick of the pastry chef and go beyond the baking I can do already.

2. ...owned a small store, what kind of merchandise would you sell?
Either books or culinary supplies. I'd love to run a cooking store as much as the bakery.

3. ...wrote a book, what genre would it be?
Let's see... I wrote a fantasy adventure book when I was in high school (as good as that sounds, it was... yikes!); more fantasy adventure in serial form when I worked Duelmasters and I would imagine that, over the eight+ years I wrote, that came up to more than a novel's worth of stories; Raf's story, the first draft novel I actually finished, about the werewolf in Vietnam, but it needs serious revision and I've never gotten back to that, and the vampire romance I'm working on now. So it's safe to say "fantasy" is my genre.

4. ...ran a school, what would you teach?
English, probably.

5. ...recorded an album, what kind of music would be on it?
Country. Real country, hardcore. Of course, I have reached the age where I realized that I became a critic because while I have the ear for music, I haven't the talent for it. I can pick a little and sing a little and that's as far as it goes. Although if I could pick better and sing better, Merle Haggard is running a contest to find himself an opening act. sigh I really trust Merle's judgement when it comes to finding new talent, and it won't be me!

Speaking of country music, I recently learned that the amazing Texas honky-tonker, Roger Wallace, was actually invited into the first round of this season's "Nashville Star." Roger Wallace has recorded three albums and is well known and very beloved by the hardcore alt-country crowd. I've met him, and he's a doll. As good live as he is on record. He didn't get past the first round, as the judges of NS told him "radio wouldn't know what to do with him." (You can read about this in Roger's own words here.)

Could someone please fix "country" radio?! whimper
