My friend and fellow author, Brandi Boddie tagged me to answer 11 fun questions, and then pass the quiz along to 11 bloggers. Since I’ve been buried in my work in progress and haven’t poked my head up to notice whether or not the earth is still spinning, let alone if anything blog-worthy has happened, I figured this would be a fun little post. If you aren’t the least bit curious about my answers, I don’t blame you. Feel free to talk amongst yourselves or hum your favorite elevator music.
1. Book or movie and why?
Book, with one exception. How to Train your Dragon the movie is brilliant. The How to Train your Dragon books are written for 10-year-old boys. Not so brilliant. Unless you’re a 10-year-old boy.
2. Real book or e-book?
Both. I don’t think it has to be one or the other. I do love my Kindle when I’ve just got to get that sequel NOW!
3. Funniest thing you've done in the last 5 years?
Tried to ride my bike to the elementary school to deliver my son’s asthma medication while under the influence of migraine medication. You can read about my stoned trip here.
4. How would your best friend describe you?
Deluded in a good way, highly-susceptible to the side effects of medication, neurotic, spineless, creative.
5. Do you put yourself into the books you read/write or the movies you watch?
Mostly, no. But sometimes the books I write take on a life of their own. Or rather the characters do, and then I just might imagine a certain very hot house faerie peeking around the office door and asking if I’d like him to vacuum the living room and make dinner.
6. Favorite kind of car and why?
I have tried to have an opinion about cars. I have tried to think the little sports cars are cool. But I really just don’t care. So my answer is, The Tardis!
7. Would your choice of party be a catered meal or barbecue out back?
Catered. By a sexy house faerie. Duh!
8. What's your favorite season and why?
Autumn. I love the cooler weather and the fact that it’s not windy like spring. And the leaves. And pumpkins! Pumpkins make me happy on a deep, psychological level.
9. What specific lesson have you learned - Spiritual, educational, occupational?
If you’re going to ride your bike while on Topamax, wear your helmet and consider attaching a flag.
10. Besides writing, what's your favorite thing to do when you get some extra time?
Read. Play Words with Friends. Actually spend time with friends, like physically in the same room. It’s a crazy new fad.
11. What's one place you can be found at least one time every week?
This question put me in a bad mood. I really don’t like the places I go at least once a week. So I’m going to pretend the question is “What’s one place you wish you could be found once a week?”
