okay, I'll succumb to the meme

I never fill these out. But I'll do this one, since it has cooler questions than any I've seen before. I'm going to try to answer with things that I feel describe me, only occasionally copping out and picking something just 'cause it's cool. Look for deeper meaning. Or just laugh at me. (And, oops, I forgot to answer a few, so I'll edit it and add them.)

If I were a stone, I would be a... riverbed shale/slate with fossils
If I were a tree, I would be a... paper birch
If I were a bird, I would be a... mockingbird
If I were an insect, I would be a... moth
If I were a machine, I would be... an old-fashioned player-piano
If I were a tool, I would be a... sledgehammer
If I were a fruit, I would be a... bing cherry
If I were a flower, I would be a... buttercup
If I were a kind of weather, I would be a... hurricane
If I were a mythical creature, I would be a... griffin
If I were a musical instrument, I would be a... penny whistle
If I were a kind of profession, I would be an... engineer
If I were an animal, I would be a... otter
If I were anything in the world, I would be... me
If I were a color, I would be... blue
If I were a fragrance, i would be... ozone (note: I either dislike or can't smell almost all perfumes, so my answer here is somewhat less odd than it seems)
If I were an emotion, I would be... devotion
If I were a state or feeling, I would be... sloth
If I were a vegetable, I would be... a mushroom (or a summer squash, if you don't consider mushrooms to be vegetables)
If I were a sound, I would be... a train whistle
If I were an Element, I would be... Antimony. Or Water, if you want that kind of element. (Note: I don't know that much about the 'standard' definitions of Earth/Air/Water/Fire, but I do know that they really _don't_ match the way I think about them. From what I know of the 'standards', I'm Air & Fire. And I'm always up for discussing religious philosophy, if someone wants to explain more about elementalism...)
