Being caucasion.

 

Electricity. Readily accessible clean water. Food (even though I hate it).

If I am honest about things, up until the past year, I was taking an income for granted much more than I thought I was. While it has not always been the same, I have been very fortunate, and had been pretty steadily employed in my chosen profession for a long time. (The riskier choices of the past year notwithstanding.)

I generally try not to. Every once in a while, I'll catch myself and make an effort to reality slap myself and realize that there are a lot of people who would be very happy to be where I am.

If you were an Egyptian pharaoh, what would you have buried with you so you could have them in the afterlife? (Aside from minis!)

 

About a ton of cat treats, I've got a lot of kitteh waiting for me on the other side  =^-^=

As I sat on the toilet, I pondered this question. Then it hit me... 

 

Toilets and plumbing and modern sanitation. There are so many underground tubes dedicated to taking our waste away and dealing with it. But we wipe and we flush and we go about our day. And yet this system keeps us clean, and is pretty damn remarkable as far as a societal norm. Cheers to the underappreciated folks keeping it running.

The breadth of my own knowledge and experience.

 

No, really, after 11 years in the Girl Scouts I have forgotten more skills than most people learn all their life. On top of that I grew up surrounded by family members who encouraged and insisted on hobbies where we make stuff and I picked up a lot of skills that way. For instance, jewelry-making was my aunt's thing and yet I'm drawing up designs for a possible bracelet made out of 1st edition X-Wing focus tokens.

This question come from @Crowley

 

Wednesday, September 12: What sort of supplies do you keep stocked for disaster situations?

 

Truck always has toilet paper. Should always have water but that has lapsed. And the truck is with my mom soo.....

 

Actually don't have a disaster stash. Newly moved in, trying not to make clutter or take up space.

      You thought you were rid of me... you thought "Thanks Gygax's Leather Dice Bag, July is over and we're through with Crowley's stupid questions!"
       
      YOU WERE ONLY HALF RIGHT!
       
      July IS over, but I HAVE MORE STUPID QUESTIONS!!
       
      Now, as a reminder, the obligatory rulze posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
