1 Corinthians 13!!!! I have the entire chapter memorized.

If you could build your dream horse, what would it be like?

Ummm hahahaha that's a really hard question! It'd probably be a C line Hanoverian, but black with a spotted blanket - and non-varnishing. Superb temperament of course [ammy friendly because I am an ammy], incredible jumping ability, SOUND, about 3 or 4yo, greenbroke, 16.3hh, and probably a stallion because, well, what ELSE you gonna do with a C line with jumping talent? Beyond great conformation, naturally, and a TON of heart/passion.

Mine [regarding the religious verse thing] I don't actually know which one it is but I have the verse memorized. "Greater love hath no man than this; that he lay down his life for his friends."

Just speaks to me on a really deep level. The desire to serve is in my blood - my grandfather on my mother's side is a Vietnam vet, and my grandfather on my father's side wanted to join the army but wasn't allowed [he is a priest], plus we are related by marriage to a Victoria Cross recipient [which is pretty much THE highest honor an Australian or British soldier can receive]. Unfortunately for me, the closest I'm ever going to get is gaming. I'd last about 5 seconds before telling the drill instructor where to get off! Certainly wouldn't survive boot camp.

If you were to join the defense force [army, navy, Marines, air force, whatever] which division would it be, why would you sign up, and, given the choice, where would you serve?

Veterinary Corps.

How would you react if you were expecting a really good Christmas present from someone and what you actually received was really, really naff?

They have that? Cool!

Ummm... well I'm a pretty decent actor and that happens usually every year, so I usually fake gratitude and then it gets put in my closet and never seen again. It's the thought that counts. At least they actually bothered to get me something, y'know? And I've been giving horrible presents purely because of lack of money... sometimes you just can't give something decent.

Custom-made Halo Spartan costumes... yay or nay?

I can't decide lol I have two best moments!

First ever showjumping win. My horse jumped awesomely and then in the jumpoff he was a legend... fast and accurate and he took some seriously tricky striding, lines and angles for me, to have a VERY quick jumpoff. I knew as we cleared our last jumpoff fence that we had a good chance of a win and was beaming by the time we left the arena. I didn't care how the last rider went, we'd given it our all and had a great ride... the ribbon was just the icing on the cake.

First ever one day event. All I wanted to do was complete... knew I had a very good chance of that because my horse is a very experienced schoolmaster and an absolute machine cross-country. I was petrified going into the XC [our last phase] but jumping the last fence was the best feeling EVER... we had completed our first ever ODE and with our last phase the best. Then finding out once all the scores were counted that we'd actually placed 4th! [field of 7, 2 were eliminated, but hey we beat one person hahahaha]

Ever gone 3 days with no sleep?

My greatest goal in life is to become a PA through my military experience and other schooling. Then I would buy my grandmother's farm, get married, have 3 children, and grow old and goofy with my husband. I'd have a spare horse...or three though. >.>




What was the craziest thing you did as a teenager?

still am a teenager technically haha... umm probably going to the bar with no ID? My friend bought the drinks [she had ID] and when the bouncers did "the rounds" checking if everyone had ID they took my word for it when I said I had ID... I am legal [drinking age is 18 in Aus] just don't have a proof of age card, drivers license or passport. I have a learner's permit but you have to have PHOTO ID and learner's permits don't have photos.

How quickly do you get drunk? [if you're underage, please wait and answer something else] ...I am drunk after one standard drink! Not maggoted, have no interest in getting maggoted, but I can feel it after about 1/2 and by the time I've finished one my fine motor skills are starting to go.

Never gotten drunk, but no one's replying so maybe someone who has could reply later and this can keep going?

Have you ever looked for your Christmas presents when you know your parents have hidden them?
