Getting to Know You: Christine Chapel

by Gueniver

James T. Kirk got an e-mail with all sorts of questions that were intended to help people learn about him. The e-mail instructed him to forward it to his friends, and one of the people who received it was Dr. Chapel. We have managed to obtain a copy of the doctor's answers; here it is:

NAME: Christine Chapel (No, I will not put that down! Absolutely not! You didn't change your name; why should I?)

SEX: Female (I heard that!), That's right, honey, and I'm all the woman you'll ever need!

HOME: Enterprise most of the time, but I prefer the apartment in San Fransisco.

HEIGHT: 5' 9"

EYES: Blue (Thank you, Spock. That was quite poetic)

HAIR: Natural Brunette

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WEEKLY ENTERTAINMENT SHOW? I don't watch shows much; I prefer live entertainment. (What? That's not a show, dear, that's just a vid. No, I won't put it down, I don't watch it that often. <sigh> This is staying with us, right? We're not showing it to Jim, are we? Oh, alright). "I was a Vulcan Love Slave".

WHAT'S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? What? (I don't know what this means. Do you? Oh, I see.) I don't use a mouse or a mouse pad, so I guess nothing.

FAVORITE MAGAZINE: Journal of Federation Medicine; Starfleet Science Weekly.

FAVORITE SMELL: hehehe, well, if this isn't going to be seen by anyone, I'd have to say the sweet smell of love. (It is not vulgar! I said love, not sex! I know you know what I meant but I didn't say it, you did. Yes, it was what I was thinking.)

WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD: The day my betrothed died.

BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD: hmm, so many to choose from. I'd have to say the night of the Ahn-woon (evil grin). That was a night of very good feelings.

THINGS TO DO ON THE WEEKENDS: Plan staffing schedules, undo Leonard's messes from the week, workout in the gym, plan my next surprise for my husband. (You know what that means, no, I will not tell you what I'm planning. Hey! Stop that, I'm trying to answer the questions!)

FAVORITE SOUNDTRACK: I'm fond of the track of music on Vulcan Love Slave, it's very ... inspiring (very evil grin).

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THOUGHT OF WHEN YOU WOKE UP THIS MORNING? That coffee smells good. I'm the luckiest woman on the ship because my husband wakes me with hot coffee.


ROLLER COASTERS -- DEADLY OR EXCITING? I don't know, my husband thinks they're a waste of time (No, that's exactly what you said. You didn't want to go to Anaheim because you thought it was a waste of our leave time. No, I would not have preferred to spend the entire time on a roller coaster than in bed with you, I just wanted to go for the day).

PEN OR PENCIL? Pen. (I know I don't use a pen, I believe the question is in regards to the old style of writing. Pens were ink and therefore permanent, pencils came with an erasing system. I would have preferred to use a Pen. What's that supposed to mean? I don't make that many modifications to my reports!)

HOW MANY RINGS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE PHONE? I always answer the comm immediately. (What? Oh, you're right.) Unless I'm in the shower.

FAVORITE FOODS: Spock! (I know you're not technically a food, but you're my favorite flavor!), strawberries, bananas, peaches, honey (<evil grin>) especially on some of my favorite foods!

DO YOU GET ALONG WITH YOUR PARENTS? My mother and I have our moments. I never knew my father.



CROUTONS OR BACON BITS? Nope, I like my veggies as nature intended them. (No, not covered in dirt! You are in a mood tonight, aren't you?)

DO YOU LIKE TO DRIVE? Oh, yeah. I like to be behind the wheel and in control. (Oh really? Would you prefer to 'drive' tonight, my love?)

DO YOU SLEEP WITH STUFFED ANIMALS? Nope, just my big furry Vulcan husband!

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY KIND OF PET, WHAT WOULD IT BE? Spo-(<kiss - smothering the answer> Well, I have to answer, don't I?)

IF YOU COULD BE ANY TYPE OF ANIMAL WHAT WOULD YOU BE? I'm not sure I would choose to be an animal. I'm happy being a human, although I'd like to know what it would be like to be a Vulcan sometimes.


IF YOU COULD MEET ANYONE DEAD OR ALIVE, WHO WOULD IT BE? Hmm, that's hard to choose. I guess Hippocrates or Surak. I once read a story by a lady named Cheree that I was very interested in.

FAVORITE ALCOHOLIC DRINK: A good stout beer like Guiness, I enjoy the taste of Radal on my husband's lips ...



GUYS-IF A GIRL ASKED FOR THE SHIRT OFF YOUR BACK, WOULD YOU GIVE IT TO HER? Well, I'm not a man, but I'd offer my shirt to anyone in need. (Whaddya mean you wouldn't 'permit it'? I'm an officer just like you, I can offer my clothing if I want. Oh <blush>, you don't want to share. Well, who said anything about sharing? I was just talking about clothing.)

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY JOB YOU WANTED, WHAT WOULD IT BE? CMO for Enterprise is the best job I've ever had.

IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR, WHAT WOULD IT BE? I'm all done with that. I wouldn't change it for anything.

IF YOU COULD HAVE A TATTOO, WHAT AND WHERE WOULD IT BE? I would get one of those ancient Vulcan clan marks. (Hm? That's not a tatoo? Well, what is it then? A Brand! Holy Mother of Fire! You're kidding! Let me see ... wow!)

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE? Yeah. I thought I was once a long time ago, fortunately I got a second chance to do it right. I got lucky.

DESCRIBE YOUR DREAM WEDDING: Hmph! I don't dream about weddings, but I sure used to waste a lot of time thinking about it. Mostly for my mother's sake. I'm just happy I survived that walk across the desert to the Koon-ut Kalifee ceremony!

WHAT IS ON YOUR WALLS IN YOUR ROOM? Well, let's see. I've got this pair of Ahn-woon on display. A full length mirror ...

IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL? Yes, yes it is. (I know I didn't answer the question, it's a stupid question. Yes, I recognize it as a pop psychology question. Okay, fine.) It's half full <bats eyelashes - in best Pollyanna voice> Thank you for asking.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SNAPPLE? What in hell is a snapple?


DO YOU TYPE WITH YOUR FINGERS ON THE RIGHT KEYS? Yes, and on the left keys too!

IF YOU COULD BE ONE GARDENING TOOL, WHAT WOULD YOU BE? I don't know. (Hm? Oh, that's good) a bird bath, I love bath tubs. Although that's not much of a tool ... I don't know. This is another dumb question.

WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED? I don't know, I don't like to look. (sound of scuffling) Hmm ... looks like an old paper novel of some sort, a pair of underwear, one of my husband's socks (It most certainly is yours, here look!).

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NUMBER? 9 (Why? That's the most times you've ever been able to make me ... <kiss-smothering the answer - evil grin>, Well< you asked!)

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR? I never had one, growing up, but I did enjoy piloting classes at the academy.

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM CAR? Don't have one, I'm happy with the transportation I've got now.

FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH: I dunno, I enjoy watching my husband dance, but that's not exactly a sport. Unless you count the times that I try to distract him ...


OF ALL THE PEOPLE YOU SEND THIS TO, WHO IS LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND TO IT: Well, since I'm not going to send this to anyone, I can't answer. Oh, no. I don't think so. You come right back here, Mister. You said if I did it you'd do it too! Spock! SPOCK! Don't ignore me! No, I don't think it's a good time to meditate!
