Thanks so much for all the love, support, and offers of ass-kickin’ assistance yesterday, now let’s get to the good part:
The lovely and talented and utterly-unafraid-of-getting-her-ass-kicked-for-taking-pictures-of-weirdos-in-the-street Misty passed along “Tag! You’re It!” to myself and several other wonderful blog artistes. That means I have to answer some questions… ’cause she’s a lawyer and she scares me. ; )
1. Book or movie and why?
Book. Number one, I read pretty much CONSTANTLY (yes, even on the toilet), and number two, I often find my own imagination is better than the screenwriter/director/whatever’s. Not to say I WON’T see the movie, but I generally like to have read the book first. And if I find out I’m watching a movie that’s based on a book and I didn’t know it, I will immediately go out and find that book and read it. Because I’m a nerd and a film major, and that’s how we roll.
2. Real book or e-book?
Real. Can’t beat the smell of the paper, the feel of turning the pages with my actual fingers. I’m like Admiral Kirk in that way. Plus, I think the whole Kindle thing is a trick.
3. Funniest thing you’ve done in the last 5 years?
I’m assuming this means funny to others, because I amuse the fuck out of myself pretty much all the time. And I really don’t know for sure… but it probably involved me doing something stupid and proceeding to injure myself. I’m good at that. Oh, and there’s also this.
4. Do you put yourself in the books you read/movies you watch?
Not… really. I empathize with the characters, of course, but mostly I’m just along for the ride. There HAVE been some very fucked up dreams, though.
5. How would your best friend describe you?
Well, it’s you guys, so I hope it’s “one funny motherfucker.”
6. Favorite kind of car and why?
One that runs. That is all.
7. Would your choice of party be a catered meal or a barbecue out back?
As long as I’m not RESPONSIBLE for the party, either is good. If I’m in charge, catered meal: Hoody can’t take that kind of pressure!
8. What’s your favorite season and why?
Hmmm… I really love fall, the way the air smells and the changing leaves. But I also hate it a little because I know it means winter’s coming.
9. What important lessons have you learned? Spiritual, educational, and occupational?
Spiritual: There is no one “right” way. You gotta do what feels best for you.
Educational: Virtually everything I learned in college is now obsolete, but I still think everyone should have to go for the mind-broadening.
Occupational: The people I work with/for are fucking rock stars. I would not have made it through all the drama I’ve dealt with without their understanding and support (or y’all’s, either!).
10. Besides writing, what’s your favorite thing to do when you get some extra time?
I don’t know what this “extra time” thing is, I feel like all I do is work and sleep! I really need to spend MORE time writing, but there’s that whole “sleeping” problem… I do like to dick around on the internet and read, but I’m usually doing those things while doing something else at the same time.
11. What’s one place you can be found at least one time every week?
*sigh*… Walmart. I grocery shop once a week and that’s where I do most of it. They carry my basic staples: catfood, Sprite, booze and refried beans.
Whew, that’s done. Now I’m supposed to pass this on to 11 other people, but Hoody don’t do rules. So I’m passing it along to ALL the members of the Royal Court. That’s right, bitches. YOU’RE “it.”
