Me, in 20 Questions

graphic: Me in 20 Questions

So, I was reading some through some Full Sail alumni blogs and found Amanda Creek Creative’s post answering the questions below. I just couldn’t resist! So, here are my answers.

Question 1: How tall are you?
I lived most of my adult life thinking I was 5’8” – then someone actually measured me. I’m actually 5’7” – but feel taller!

Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?
Now, if I said anything here, it would no longer be hidden, would it?

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
Long, uninterrupted text. I prefer to scan blog posts at first, then go back and read them. It’s harder to scan when posts don’t include subheadings, bullet points, etc.

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?
Lack of kindness and compassion. Not as much a pet peeve as a barometer – unkind people show themselves sooner rather than later. It’s a perfect way to know whom to avoid.

Question 5: What’s your favorite song?
Oh, that’s a tough one! I heart The Beatles, and Brian Adams; Phil Collins and P!nk; M. Ward and Trio Los Panchos…and more. So, my favorite song depends on how I’m feeling on any particular day. Right now I’m playing “Somos Uno” by Yandel on Spotify.

Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop?
Oh, again, too many to name. I’m a big fan of jewelry – especially anything Doctor-Who-related. I’m a HUGE fangirl.

Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
Reading. See Question #10.

Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?
I’d say “chocolate” but I don’t think it is “junk food.” I think it is a gift from the gods and I worship at their altar as much as possible.

Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
I have one kitty, who’s the love of my life. Isn’t he a handsome boy?!

Question 10: What is your number one favorite fiction book?
Ha! Another tough question! I love, love, love Sci-Fi. And, I prefer to read series rather than stand-alone books. I also enjoy mystery, suspense, classic science fiction, and narrative non-fiction. One of my favorite authors is Peter Clines. I love him so much, in fact, that I wrote a wrote a blog post about him. His Ex-Heroes series is so worth the read! Folks I’ve read (or re-read) recently: Robert Galbraith (JK’s alter-ego), Jim Butcher, Charles Stross, and Simon Winchester. I’m also a huge, HUGE, fan of Sherlock Holmes. Of the thousands of books I read as child, “The Complete Works,” bound in leather and with original The Strand illustrations, is the only book I’ve carried with me across 2 countries, 5 states, and the many, many moves since my childhood.

Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?
Paula’s Choice Resist C15 Super Booster. Skin care magic in a bottle.

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
For the life of me, I cannot remember. I’m very good at forgetting anything unpleasant! 🙂

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Raw whole milk, preferably just out of the cow.

Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?
I don’t have one. BUT, I do have a favorite TV show – Doctor Who. ALL of Doctor Who – the Classic, the 8th Doctor Movie, the Current series reboot starting in 2005. All of it. I’m a Whovian – my blood runs TARDIS blue.

Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?
Nerd. Definitely nerd.

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
A populated small self-sustaining island in the Caribbean. My cabin must have electricity and high-speed internet, and have beach access.

Question 17: PC or Mac?
Been a PC gal for over 20 years…recently forced to go over to the dark side. Can’t say I’m that upset about it.

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
I had a lover a long time ago who had a habit of showering me with rose petals, on a whim, for no real reason whatsoever. There have been others since, and many other romantic gestures. But nobody’s yet improved on that one.

Question 19: Favorite celebrity?
David Tennant. Hands down. He’s the only celebrity I’ve had a crush on since I was a teenager.

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

Now it’s your turn!
