A Mark Meme!

It is a rare and joyous occasion when MarkTapioKines creates a meme!

2. If you were worth $40 billion and had already bought and donated everything you wanted to, would you spend $40 million on a beautiful Van Gogh painting?
No. Unless my purchase of it for that price would save it from destruction. $40million is a lot of food for hungry people.

3. Would you spend $40 million on a 200-foot yacht?

4. How many times have you been engaged to be married?
Zero times to date.

5. Did you have a steady boyfriend or girlfriend in high school?
Not really.

6. Have you ever had a day at the races?

Yes. This past Cinco De Mayo.

7. Have you ever had a night at the opera?
I saw La Boheme in high school with my parents. Not my thing.

8. Have you ever eaten duck soup?

9. If you accomplish something major that you're proud of, and nobody gives you any credit for it, does that bother you?
Of course.

10. Of all the things that your “dream house” will have (which your current place of residence does not), what are the three most important?
I LOOOOVE the house I live in now. But it would be nice if the basement were finished and there were a second bathroom. Those are both entirely doable. Also, I think perhaps a designer like of of those Queer Eye guys needs to come in and help me and Brugos organize our clutter.

11. Who is the most famous person you've ever met? (“Met” = at least exchanged two words with face-to-face, preferably shook hands with)
MOST famous, as in person who the average American would have heard of? I suppose it was Crispin Glover.

12. Have you ever seen a U.S. President in person? (You didn't have to meet him)

13. If you go to a favorite restaurant, do you always order the same dish or do you mix it up a bit?
I try to mix it up but I have favorite dishes that I crave and usually go to the restaurant just to order that dish.

14. When was the last time either of your parents saw you naked?
My mom in high school when she went with me to my first OBGYN appointment. My dad, probably not since I was a little girl.

Midlothian, VA. Best thing: Pretty and full of history. Worst thing: Red state.

16. What town do you live in now? What was the best thing about it? The worst thing?
Seattle, WA. Best thing: So much to do. Worst thing: No sense of history.

17. When you Google your name, in quotes, how many results do you get?

18. What's your astrological sign, and do you think your personality is typical of that sign's supposed traits?
Virgo. And yes, though as an atheist, I can't explain why.

19. What household items do you have more of than you need?

20. Name something you ate all the time as a kid that you wouldn't touch now.
Real marshmallows.
