Top 5 (non-living) things that would kill me the most to sacrifice...
Well…this has to be the hardest question thus far… JI’m not sure if you meant ‘tangible’ or ‘intangible’ non-living things, so I’m giving you both…
Books: An easy ‘Number One’ for me. Books have been my in my blood, so to speak, for a very long time. Books play a part in my life 100% of the time, so I would be lost (and really bored) without them. (Plus, except for, The Big Bang Theory, I hate TV!)
Music: I love a broad selection - everyone from Michael Crawford/Phantom of the Opera (sigh) to Aerosmith. Music calms me down and makes me look at things in a new way.
My Computer: Without it, I would have to go back to pen and paper and I don’t think much would get done. I can’t even imagine the hand cramps, and even I can’t read my handwriting (it resembles that of a pirate whose had way tooooo much rum - and I don’t even get the rum).
Movies: I am a huge movie fan and I love to see a fantastic story brought to life! From The Lost Boys to The Breakfast Club to Sense & Sensibility and Sherlock Holmes - the list is endless. I can’t wait to see The Raven!
Root Beer Floats: I can’t help it. We all need one vice and that is SO mine!
To speak for the ‘intangibles,’ I would hate to ever sacrifice:
Humor: I love to laugh; I love to make other people laugh; and without being able to look at some of the ‘bad’ stuff in this world and turn it into humor, I think we all would have to curl up and call it a day.
Loyalty: To your friends, to your family - this is one intangible that I would hate to ever see disappear.
Faith: Everyone has faith in something, mine is fierce.
Passion: You need to have that lust for life. I think if I didn’t, I’d be a robot. (Although Optimus Prime and those Transformers were really passionate about their job!)
Imagination: No explanation needed for this one. Without being able to create, I’d lose the ability to do what I love the most.
Until Next Time, Everybody,
What fabulous answers, Amy! I couldn't imagine losing any of those things either. What do you guys think!?

How does a girl choose between the one who steals her heart and the one who owns her soul?
Matt and Emily were created for a specific job. Raised and trained as the ultimate angel/warrior team, they are sent down to save, defend, judge and forgive, depending on the 'life' they've been assigned. What they don't realize is that the power of human emotions, such as love, anger, passion and fear can take over even the best of souls, causing them to make mistakes and follow paths that lead to confusion and heartache.
When the reason for their training is finally revealed, the angel/warrior team find themselves thrust into a world they know nothing about. Matt takes over the life of Daniel, a young man with a great deal of baggage. Emily becomes Liz, a girl living in a remote village who relies on nothing more than her own strength to survive. A violent storm erupts one night, and framed in the window of Liz's establishment is a frightening face. Let in by the soul of a Good Samaritan, the two visitors bring with them a past full of secrets that could literally change an angel's path and a warrior's plans.
From murder to redemption, this angel/warrior team must find a way to keep the faith they have in each other in a world that's ripping them apart. (Summary from Goodreads.com)
