All About Mrs. Mason
by Rose U2LadyUtena

NAME: Mary Anne Mason

LIVING ARRANGEMENT: I'm currently my house in Portsmouth with my
daughter, Maria, and her rake of a husband when he's ashore. Oh,
there are those gentlemen lodgers, but they arent't family.

FAVORITE PASTIME: Reading romance novels and a sip of gin...every
once in a great while.

FAVORITE BOOK: "A Rake's Progress"

THE BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: Being paid rent months in
advance...no, knowing that Maria is finally happy and will stop her
infernal crying.

THE WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: Sending people off to sea and not
having enough money to pay rent!

FAVORITE SMELLS: Gin, er, make that money.

WHAT'S THE FIRST THING YOU THINK WHEN YOU WAKE IN THE MORNING: Who owes me rent?

BATTLE: SCARY OR EXCITING: Scary if it kills your loved ones, like it
did dear Old Mr. Mason.

FAVORITE FOODS: Anything I don't have to cook.

CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA: I don't care, as long as I don't have to pay
for it.

STORMS, COOL OR SCARY: Scary if it kills your loved ones, like it did
Mr. Mason. Now my eyes are watering. Excuse me...

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE?: I'd
make Hornblower an army man and a rich man too!

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT WOULD IT BE: I'd
like to be younger. Maybe if I was I could marry a nice man like Mr.
Bush and not have to worry so much.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE? With Mr. Mason, the dear departed man!
Did you know he looked a lot like Mr. Bush?

IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL: It better be full!

WHAT'S IN YOUR ANXIETY CLOSET: Well, I'm afraid Maria's going to lose
her dear Horry to the sea.

WHAT'S YOUR LOFTIEST DREAM: Well, it was to see Mr. Mason as Cap'n
and my daughter to marry a rich man, but I guess I'll settle for Mr.
Hornblower catching some prize ships and getting promoted--and
getting a pay raise too. Then I won't have to run a boarding house
for young rakes and can start raising grandchildren as cute as Horry!
Oops, did I say that aloud?

WHAT'S YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE: My Maria being widowed young and having
to go back to teaching because I don't want her to work her whole
life like I have.

WHAT DO YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOU THAT YOU FEEL THEY DON'T: I'm
not really mean; I'm just trying to be sarcastic.

WHAT OTHER HH CHARACTER WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ANSWER THIS
QUESTIONNAIRE: I'd like to see that Mr. Bush try to answer this. He's
a nice fellow who pays his rent on time, but he sure is mean when I
get after Hornblower!
