Getting there quickly when going a long distance, or taking your time and enjoying the journey?
Taking my time and enjoying the journey.

The next trip you take to the US / UK would you rather fly first class or take a cruise ship (like the QM2) regular class?  (Given that both would cost the same and that you had an unlimited amount of time for your holiday / visit.)

Fly first class. As much as I would love to take a luxury cruise, I fear I would worry the whole time about it going down. I realize planes can crash too, but when a boat goes down it gets weeks and months of coverage, and stays in the mind longer.

Donate to a charity, or help someone directly?

I would *love* to take a boat from the US to the UK (or the other way around) sometime and pretend I'm from another era. *sigh*

It depends on the charity / people / person but I remember years ago my ex and I and his whole family decided that instead of gifts for each other (all the adults) at Christmas we'd give to one family in need instead.  The family was anonymous, just Mom, Dad, and a couple kids (gender and age we knew).  They had a list of things they needed (not frivolous things either) and we filled a small room with all they needed and more, of course.  It was really a great and fun thing to do!

Would you rather have a few additional days off before Christmas Day or after Christmas / Boxing Day?

Before, to enjoy the buildup to Christmas, and have more time to get things ready while leaving time for fun.

Arrive early, or on time, to social occasions?

Either, for the most part.  My mom is very easy to please and as long as it's not super spicy, my MIL is, too.  FIL is a totally different story though but I'd never cook anything for him!

You're going to a pot-luck, would you rather bring a side dish or a dessert?

Dessert. I get my love of desserts from my aunt Judy, mom's sister. She and I both have the feeling that dessert first is the best idea, and the more dessert options there are, the better.

Keeping to a sleep schedule when you have time off work, or stay up later and sleep in?

Having no idea who either of these guys are I had to google.  My answer is Bradley Cooper.

Which Mr. Darcy do you prefer--Matthew MacFadyen or Colin Firth?

Can I just quickly point out before I answer this that I LOVE THIS QUESTION! I'm a huge P & P fanatic. Ok.. I may get some backlash for this, but hands down Matthew MacFadyen. Such a wonderful portrayal and a lovely film. Plus the 2005 version is my favorite!

Casablanca or Gone with the Wind?

I am, too which is why I asked the question!  :) I thought the 6 part BBC version was perfect!  However, the film did a great job of compressing the story into two hours and I do think Matthew MacFayden was a super Mr. Darcy.  Keira Knightly I could take or leave though...

Have you seen 'Death Comes to Pemberley'? (sorry for getting off-topic everyone!)

I will let someone else answer the next question as I don't think I've ever seen 'Casablanca'!

Gone With the Wind. Much as I enjoyed Casablanca the couple times I have seen it, there is just something about Gone With the Wind. I get caught up in the fantastic dresses and magnificent houses.

Big hearty breakfast, or smaller and good for you?

PC simply because it is compatible with so much. I had one of the bubbly iMacs in sage green when they first came out, and really loved it, but overall I prefer PC.

Drama or comedy?
