All About Mrs. Mason
by Rose U2LadyUtena
NAME: Mary Anne Mason
LIVING ARRANGEMENT: I'm currently my house in Portsmouth with
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
THE WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: Sending people off to sea
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,
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
STORMS, COOL OR SCARY: Scary if it kills your loved ones, like
Mr. Mason. Now my eyes are watering. Excuse me...
IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE?:
make Hornblower an army man and a rich man too!
IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT WOULD IT
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
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
her dear Horry to the sea.
WHAT'S YOUR LOFTIEST DREAM: Well, it was to see Mr. Mason as
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
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:
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!
