A few days ago, I was contacted by Brandi Boddie of Penning Praises. Brandi passed a quiz on to me to help my readers get to know me better. Us usual, any time a woman asks me questions that do not involve how her jeans look, I am more than happy to answer.
1. Book or movie and why?
That depends on whether I have a TV.
2. Real book or e-book?
I have never actually read an e-book. I have seen Kindles and other devices. They look like they could be handy, but I don't see where to put the bookmark.
3. Funniest thing you've done in the last 5 years?
I thought it was very funny. Local law enforcement did not agree.
4. Do you put yourself into the books you read/write or the movies you watch?
I don't really put myself in them. I put myself above them. I picture myself as the all-powerful puppeteer working the strings of the characters. They do whatever I want them to do. HA HA HA. "Dance, little people, dance!"
When Winona Ryder blew up Christian Slater at the end of Heathers, that was me.
When John Travolta plunged the adrenaline syringe into the heart of Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction, that was me.
When Keanu Reeves dodged the bullets of the agents in The Matrix, that was me as well. For the record, that was not easy. I had to do four takes before I got it just right.
The only exception is any movie that casts Freddy Rodriguez. I don't control Freddy Rodriguez. In those movies, I am Freddy Rodriguez.
5. How would your best friend describe you?
By explaining positive attributes about me. He may give a few negative ones. No ones perfect.
6. Favorite kind of car and why?
7. Would your choice of party be a catered meal or barbecue out back?
Can't you have barbecue catered and brought out back? I would imagine they they would take it to the place they were instructed to. Then you could have a barbecue with a few friends over and still not have to cook. Why does everything have to be one way or the other?
8. What's your favorite season and why?
Deer season. I don't hunt, but always end up with some of the meat somehow. One guy makes jerky every year. Love it.
9. What specific lesson have you learned - Spiritual, educational,
Spiritually - The phrase "Cleanliness is next to godliness" is not in the Bible.
Educational - Most college professors will not accept a paper that has "THE INTERNET" written in large letters across the Works Cited page.
Occupational - When told you are being chosen for a drug test, don't get excited and ask which ones you get to test.
10. Besides writing, what's your favorite thing to do when you get some extra
Make a sandwich.
Or if I am in one of those moods where I don't want anyone to talk to me, I stand on a street corner with a clipboard.
11. What's one place you can be found at least one time every week?
Sitting in my kitchen watching my neighbor's annoying habit of washing eggs off the side of his house and car.
These eleven questions are supposed to be passed on to 11 more people so they can play if they wish. I choose these 11 people. And you should check out each one of their blogs.
These blogs are in order from shortest title to longest. Thus creating a nice stair step pattern. You're welcome.
