    Just kidding Lemec.
    Actually, my choice would be a wolf. And that didn't even take 5 seconds.
    I think there's a certain romance about the wolf. They are majestic and mysterious and very much free.

    very cool KanderGrimm!

    that would be my first choice as well.

    or a bear of some kind.

    the entity doing the reincarnation would probably read a random thought and think that is my choice and I would end up as a "Toaster Strudel."


    Laughing

    is there not some Iron Maiden song about reincarnation and they sing about "spin again" or something like that?

    thanks,

    -Lemec

    Lem, I think your refering to Iron Maiden's "Infinite Dreams" (my second favorite Maiden song behind "The Clairvoyant"):

    Infinite dreams I can't deny them
    Infinity is hard to comprehend
    I couldn't hear those screams
    Even in my wildest dreams

    Suffocation waking in a sweat
    Scared to fall asleep again
    Incase the dream begins again
    Someone chasing I cannot move
    Standing rigid nightmare's statue
    What a dream when will it end
    And will I transcend?

    Restless sleep the minds in turmoil
    One nightmare ends another fertile
    Getting to me so scared to sleep
    But scared to wake now, in too deep

    Even though its reached new heights
    I rather like the restless nights
    It makes me wonder it makes me think
    There's more to this I'm on the brink
    It's not the fear of what's beyond
    It's just that I might not respond
    I have an interest almost craving
    But would I like to get too far in?

    It can't be all coincidence
    Too many things are evident
    You tell me you're an unbeliever
    Spiritualist? Well me I'm neither
    But wouldn't you like to know
    The truth
    Of what's out there to have the proof
    And find out just which side
    You're on
    Where would you end in Heaven or
    In Hell?

    Help me. Help me to find my true
    Self without seeing the future
    Save me, save me from torturing
    Myself even within my dreams

    There's got to be just more to it
    Than this
    Or tell me why do we exist
    I'd like to think that when I die
    I'd get a chance another time
    And to return and live again
    Reincarnate, play the game
    Again and again and again

    Very Happy

    I'd like to be some kind of bird. Being a perigrine falcon or some other bird of prey would be cool.

    A cat.

    A big mean cat, mind you. Not a domestic tabby.

    A sabertooth would be neat. Roaming the tundra, spying out my prey.

    Of course, I'd need a decent vetinarary service to patch me up if I took a tumble or anything. Smile

    Oh, and I want to be able to talk like Raul in American Flagg!. None of this 'miaow-ing' malarky, thank you very much. Twisted Evil
