If someone starts a fight I will finish it.

FAITH


1. What religion do you follow?
None

*sigh* I tried really really hard to not want anything. I failed. I didn't really get anything for the holidays, other than what I gave myself.

2. Regarding your future, what is the best thing you could hope for?
To make it on my own. To learn to trust again (not that I've ever been terribly good at it to begin with).

3. Do you let yourself get your hopes up for something even if you know that there is a large chance of failure?
I used to. Now it's like a game to me. I enjoy the expectation of something separately from the event itself. Although there are setbacks. There are times I forget and let myself hope for something.

5. Have you ever bought a lottery ticket?
Yeah

6. Do you gamble?
Occasionally - mainly small things like betting my friends a few bucks over something silly.

7. Have you ever had something called off on account of bad weather, but then gone ahead and done it anyway?
Yes - occasionally you have to go for a gallop in the rain just because.

CHARITY

Wildlife rescue, women's rights, environmental issues.

2. What causes have you given money or time to?
Wildlife rescue, women's rights, environmental issues.

Bailed someone out of jail at 3am, provided a place to live for a few months.

FORTITUDE
1. What are you most afraid of?
It used to be the dentist, but I've worked through that which was my only real phobia. I guess now it would be being alone.

2. What did you do today that was really brave?
Started packing.

3. Who is your favorite superhero, and why?
Bugs Bunny

4. Would you put your life in danger to rescue someone?b
Yes, and have done so

5. If you were to face the Wizard, would you want more courage, more brains, or more heart?
More courage

6. Have you ever gotten stage fright? If so, when?
Yes. Sometimes at work. Sometimes meeting new people.

7. Do you consider yourself to be a leader or a follower?
Leader mostly, but occasionally it's just easier to be a follower.

JUSTICE
1. Have you ever been summoned for jury duty?
Yes

2. If they reinstituted the draft (for both genders), would you go, or would find some way out of it?
Yes - I may not personally agree with the particular conflict in question but such things are necessary.

3. Do you support capital punishment (the death penalty)?
Yes. Tho I think that either public floggings or actually making prisoners do hard labor would be a more effective deterrent. I admire the guy down in Texas who doesn't believe in cushy living conditions.

4. Which should be guaranteed legal?
Which what? I think I missed something.

5. Do you believe that Dubya is rightfully President of the USA?
oooohhh - that's a huge discussion. There is no short answer.

*snort* I don't bother.

Yes

TEMPERANCE
1. What do you have the hardest time moderating yourself on?
Craving human touch. Or maybe eating.

2. Do you collect anything?
ummm - kind of. I have a lot of fiber stuff. But I think that's more hoarding than collecting. Maybe I should start collecting something.

3. Are you addicted to anything?
I don't have an addictive personality.

4. Have you ever put anything on layaway or used an installment plan?
Sure.

5. What's your preferred method of paying for things?
Bank card.

6. Tell us one thing you wish you hadn't let yourself do?
Only one? Turn down the free ride that I was offered to CU Law School.

7. Do you feel that you obsess over things?
Hell yeah. But I'm selectively obsessive.

PRUDENCE
1. Who is the wisest person you know?
Hmm. I don't know. I spent a lot of time searching for a mentor. I never really found one. Everyone has faults. Everyone is wise in something, but not wise in other things. I don't completely believe anything anyone says.

2. Have you ever participated in a vigil?
Yes, of several different flavors.

3. Do you take advice when it's given?
I weigh advice and if I think it's wise, I'll use it.

5. Do you drive defensively?
Yes. Only 1 traffic ticket and 1 real accident ever. But I do drive like the wind...

6. Have you ever had unprotected sex outside of marriage? Would you ever?
Yes, tho it was a long-term committed relationship. And yes, under the same conditions.

7. What did you learn today?
That I can see! *grin*

8. And, of course, what is your favorite heavenly virtue?
Fortitude. I have control over that one.
