Susan Gourley, awesome fantasy author and all around wonderful person, tagged me over at her blog, Susan Says. I'm still lamenting the fact that I missed her book signing at the Midtown Scholar Bookstore yesterday. Not only didn't I get to catch up with Sue, but The Midtown is probably the best independent book seller in the area. So that's a double whammy of goodness that I missed out on. In my defense, I have had no voice and a wicked cough for three days now, so I haven't gone much of anywhere- not even out into the blogosphere.
Sue was tagged last week and answered a different set of questions. Be sure to head over to her blog to check out the answers she gave.
Anywho, here are the questions that Sue tagged me with. And my understanding is that I must answer truthfully. Hmmmm.
1. Are you a Kindle, Nook, Ipad or other? Or none?
Other - I read ebooks, of which I own more of than traditional books, on my laptop.
2. Who is smarter, you or your phone?
Me. Definitely, since my phone only makes calls. I am an openly admitted Techno Freak
3. Do you like two story or one story homes?
I grew up in a three story home, I currently live in a two story home, and as I age I'm definitely seeing the benefits of a one story. So, I guess my preference depends on the day.
4. Country born and bred or city slicker?
I'm originally a city slicker who has come under the influence of country, however unwillingly.
5. Cereal, toast, eggs or just coffee for breakfast?
Cereal. I have eaten Cheerios for breakfast almost every day of my entire life. Yes, I can be that boring.
6. What new show on TV has caught your interest this year?
Burn Notice. Absolute GOLD! I mean, Bruce Campbell? Come on! And Gabrielle Anwar as a former IRA who deals arms internationally? And Jeffrey Donovan is something very nice to look at, dontyouthink? Great stories, good acting, and tons o' fun. Plus. BRUCE CAMPBELL!
7. Have you ever bought a celebrity book? About whom?
Okay. Fine. It was the eighties, and I was truly going to marry him. It was fated. Tiger Beat Magazine's celebrity compatibility quiz foretold that he was my optimal celebrity match. And a little piece of me will always belong to him. *sigh* John Schneider.
8. What is your favorite guilty snack?
Do I have to pick just one? I guess it would be rippled pototato chips and good dip.
9. What was your favorite cartoon character growing up?
Again, just one? I did an entire post dedicated to my favorites.
10. Do you pack your lunch or carry it?
I eat at home. Peanut butter and jelly, just about every day. Again, sad answers when it comes to the food.
11. What book have you read over and over again?
Mostly children's books to the Urchins. I have many a Sandra Boynton memorized as well as My Good Night Book, illustrated by Eloise Wilkin. (I've always loved her illustrations)
So there you go! I now will tag two more unsuspecting bystanders who must answer these three questions! WHAT is your name? WHAT is your quest? WHAT is your favorite . . . Oops, wait, I strayed off into Monty Python and the Holy Grail again. I hate when that happens. Here are the real questions.
1. When is your favorite time to write?
2. What would you like to change about the place where you write?
3. Who is your favorite villain?
4. Which do you prefer, Mel Brooks movies or Monty Python's?
5. Who is your favorite character from The Princess Bride?
6. If you could meet anyone living today, who would it be?
7. What is your favorite dish that your mom used to make for you?
8. What song are you really into right now?
9. If you had a kickass Halloween costume party to go to, and you had unlimited resources to prepare, what would you go as?
10. Who from your past would you FB stalk, but never want to see in real life?
So there they are. I personally, think #4 is the hardest of them all. So go on over to
