Here’s something a little different…in case you were curious about the person behind the blog. I’ve posted a lot of posts, but nothing very much about me. So I made some of my own random questions…Maybe we’ll find out that we have something in common! 🙂
1. What room am I in right now?
I am sitting in my office. I can hear traffic outside my window right now, and the weather is kind of gloomy and grey, but it is so nice having my own writing space. Even finally put curtains up this morning! They are purple.
2. Margarine or Butter?
Butter all the way! I grew up with Margarine though, yuck. I think butter is the best for cooking, though.
3. Who is my favorite celebrity crush?
For guys? Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth. For girls? Mmm…Keri Russel? She is soo pretty.
4. What is my favorite kind of food?
Italian food, yum! Anything with sauce, cheese, pasta, some kind of chicken or mushrooms…or meatballs, siigh, or garlic! Getting hungry thinking about it.
5. What is my favorite TV Show?
Right now, Game of Thrones. But LOST still remains a favorite.
6. Who is my favorite author? Who do I most admire?
J.K. Rowling, of course. If I could come close to the depth and detail that she has created in her worlds, I would be alright, I think.
7. What do I order when I am out for breakfast?
Pancakes and sausage, home-fries and fried eggs over-easy. Last time I ordered bacon and ham, too.
8. If I could have a superpower, what would it be?
Superman powers – super strength, speed, X-ray vision, ability fly. Yeah, it’d be fun to just like jump over a building and be where you need to be.
9. What is my favorite animal?
There are so many. I really like sea creatures. Whales are probably my favorite; Blue whales, humpback whales and killer whales but I also like frogs, and turtles too.
10. What is one of my favorite books?
Graceling, by Kristin Cashore.
11. What music do I listen to on a day to day basis?
On Pandora: a lot of 90’s hits, but also Ingrid Michaelson, and Disney songs
12. If I could travel anywhere in the world, where would I go?
New Zealand. I want to see all the gorgeous scenery that was viewed on all the LOTR movies, it’d also be extremely cool to visit Hobbiton, too.
13. Fiction or reality?
I have a theory influenced by the movie, The Words, that writers struggle with living in fiction or reality. They can chose one or the other, but after awhile, one or the other becomes the reality. The idea is to find the balance between the two, but is that truly possible?
14. Car or truck?
I have a tan Toyota Camry 99. Trucks are cool for those that have something to haul around, but I have no need for it. Plus, I love my Camry.
15. What do I like best about summer?
The heat! I like being so warm that’s it’s like there’s a blanket wrapped around my shoulders. I can wear flip flops and a dress and at 8 o’clock at night it is still 80 degrees… yeah, that’s my idea of a nice summer.
16. If I were to fix dinner right now, what would it be?
Something simple and comforting. Probably some kind of chicken breast, mashed potatoes and peas.
17. Why do I write?
I write because I feel like half myself without expressing myself on the page. Because there is some kind of peace, some kind of balance in myself when I get the ideas down on the page. One day when I was fourteen and in English class, I decided I wanted to be the one whose words were quoted and cherished, like something sweet and savory in your mouth. I wanted to be the one to impress people with my words.
His name was Patches, he was a black and white cat who was a goofball and very mischievous. I have never had a cat with such personality before. He’d pounce the other cats when they were sleeping, he’d follow them places, he was a loud mouth, he had terrible luck when it came to hunting mice.
19. If I could live in an alternate reality, where would it be?
I sometimes think about worlds out there other then our own, I wonder what it would be like to live if the sky was purple, the grass was blue and the water was pink? What if we have five limbs instead of four? What if our whole world was underwater?
20. Where do I see myself in 10 years?
Published. No doubt about it. Settled down someplace warm with my graduate degree. In some kind of academic career, or writing professionally, perhaps with a family of my own.
Hope you enjoyed! Thoughts below if you got ’em!
