Interview me meme

Interviewed by sunkrux

1) Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me!"
2) I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3) You will post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.
4) You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5) When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. And thus the endless cycle of the meme goes on and on and on and on...

1 - How'd an Aussie like you get into Farscape, since it really wasn't shown down under? ;) 

A US scaper on an David Duchovny/ X-Files list I was on had mentioned the show a few times and when it was cancelled she was rather distraught. A tv station in Aus had just started showing season 3 late at night with next to no publicity. (This is the same station that showed season 1 at the same time a little known sporting event called the 2000 Olympic Games was taking place in Sydney.) It sounded like a interesting show. I'd heard of it before but had dismissed it as a kid's show because of Henson's involvement and the use of muppets.

We got chatting and I told her I'd give it a go. Had it on just in the background while I was on the computer, but it didn't really grab my interest. Told her the guy in black leather (Crichton) was kinda cute 
 but that was about it. She said I had to watch Different Destinations and if I still wasn't getting into it, then she'd stop trying to 'scape me. So I turned off the computer and watched DD with no distractions and within 10 mins I was 'scaped. It's a brilliant episode and the ending, even 6 years and many, many re-watches later, is still as heartbreaking and shocking as the first time I saw it. As soon as it was over, I was online searching for other Aussie fans in the hope of getting episodes of the first 2 seasons. Within a couple of days, I'd hooked up with a lovely bunch of local scapers who supplied me videos of eps (I didn't even have a dvd player at that stage). Watched all of season 2 in one marathon session over a weekend. We've traveled to Sydney a couple of times for Farscape cons and still meet up for lunch every 6-8 weeks.

2 - How scared are you about buying your first home? (congrats btw)

Completely UtterlyTerrified. Have had many sleepless nights and angst filled days and it's still not over.  I had thought I'd received final approval on Monday, only to find out today that yet another section of the govt finance  department has to give the loan their tick of approval which will probably take another couple of weeks.  It feels as if I'm on a rollercoaster with all the stomach-churning emotions to match.
I don't have any regrets though as I'm paying not much less in rent each week and at least I'll be paying off my own mortgage, not someone else's.
I just want all the frellin' red tape and crap to be over and done with, get packing and move on in.

3 - What is your favorite comfort food?

mashed potato with lots of butter and lemon pepper

4 - What is your favorite childhood tv show?

The original Battlestar Galactica. Starbuck (Dirk Benedict) was my first tv crush.

5 - If you won tons of money, as in enough to never have to work again, would you quit work?

Hell yeah!!!!! At least for a few years in which I would travel to every place I've always wanted to visit and attend heaps of cons all over the planet. I would probably go back to work at some stage and enjoy it a lot more as I wouldn't be relying on the wage to put a roof over my head and food on the table.
