If I Could Be...

A while back, Katie-Yael tagged me with a meme, and I've been pondering, contemplating, even thinking about my answers (not losing sleep, though). The problem is, I'm supposed to both answer it and pass it along, and I'm reluctant to do the latter. I'd really prefer to send it to volunteers, so please let me know if this meme interests you, and I'll tag you:

You chosen people volunteers have to pick five of the options below and tell us what you would do..

* If I could be a scientist…
* If I could be a farmer…
* If I could be a musician…
* If I could be a doctor…
* If I could be a painter…
* If I could be a gardener…
* If I could be a missionary…
* If I could be a chef…
* If I could be an architect…
* If I could be a linguist…
* If I could be a psychologist…
* If I could be a librarian…
* If I could be an athlete…
* If I could be a lawyer…
* If I could be an inn-keeper…
* If I could be a professor…
* If I could be a writer…
* If I could be a llama-rider…
* If I could be a bonnie pirate…
* If I could be an astronaut…
* If I could be a world famous blogger…
* If I could be a justice on any one court in the world…
* If I could be married to any current famous political figure…


If I could be a musician…I would be a singer and conductor of off-Broadway shows, Broadway shows, and operas. I would have an amazing voice so I could sing bass, baritone, or alto parts (the soprano parts are not for me). I would be in great demand, and I would own my own private jet to get around, just like John Travolta. Only I wouldn't want to pilot it, as John does, but he could be my pilot or recommend his favorite back-up pilots.

If I could be a painter...I would be Cezanne. Not that I know anything about Cezanne's life, but I would like to be able to capture what he sees the way he did. However, I think I am somehow related to Giacometti, although I have absolutely no basis for this idea, other than a Romanian-born mother.

If I could be a gardener...I would spruce up the ground around the building where I live. The repairs have been completed, but the ground is bare. Come to think of it, this is actually a project I could present to the building management IRL with my friend who designed Miriam's garden, and we might be able to make it happen. Wow!

If I could be an architect...I would specialize in residential architecture. When I was a little girl, I used to walk to school past a house that had a beautiful doll house at the end of its driveway. When I thought no one was looking, I would snoop inside that dollhouse to see how it was laid out and what furniture it had. I love designing structures according to functions, and I'm very nosy.

If I could be married to any current famous political figure…it would NOT be Bill Clinton. He's all yours, Hillary! Perhaps Vaclav Havel from the Czech Republic: I like the idea of a leader who is also a playwright, and the few Czechs I have met were worldly and witty. And Prague is such a magical place, it could be fun to live there. And John Travolta could fly us around when we had important events to attend.

I like your answers. Ok--so what is the tag all about?

Yael K said...

I love your answers! Now I wanna go back and change mine because you actually put thought and intelligence into yours. And, can I add, you were thoughtful and considerate about not foisting off the 'tag, you're next!' on anyone. Unlike me. Gulp.

Big hug.

Bubbi - The tag means "you're it." Consider yourself tagged (that'll teach you to ask questions) now, which means you're supposed to answer the meme and pass it along.

Katie-Yael - Well, it's your blog, so you can change your answers or just write new ones so we can all compare the new with the old :-) As for being considerate, I did foist a meme once, but I got ignored. Gulp.

OK--I will do so :)

I got a 12-hour crush on Bill Clinton when I read this speech about how he helped stop the violence in Bosnia.

But I've grown out of run-around guys. So I don't think I'd marry any political figure!
