It’s Inquisitive Wednesday! On IW, I answer 5-10 questions, be they from awards, tags, or reader input.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “It’s Tuesday. Shouldn’t you wait until tomorrow?”
Cait @ Notebook Sisters tagged me for a “20 Things You May Not Know About Me” tag. And I am going to answer all of the questions today.
ON TO THE QUESTIONS!
Question 1: How tall are you?
Five feet and eight inches. I am tall.
Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?
Um… outlining a million stories and never writing a single one. I can figure out a (short) story start to finish and then never write it. Which… I guess is more of a bad habit than a hidden talent. But never mind that!
Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
When blogs I love suddenly stop posting without a word. Which isn’t really a pet peeve as much as it is sad and “WHERE DID MY FAVORITE BLOGGER GO?!?”
Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?
Being interrupted repeatedly during a serious conversation.
Question 5: What’s your favorite song?
Ever? Like all time favorite song? No such beast.
My favorite song changes like every week or so. This week, I am obsessed with Peter Hollens’ cover of I See Fire.
Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?
I don’t really spend time on Etsy, buying or looking. I’ve occasionally browsed, but that’s about it.
Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
Ha! Am I ever alone? Reading or writing. Because…
Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?
Chocolate. Reese’s more specifically.
Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
Real pets? No. As I posted last week, we had a hamster, but he passed on.
Imaginary pets though… I have a black cat named Tempest. He’s a very intelligent feline.
Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?
Favorite non-fiction is Mama’s Bank Account by Kathryn Forbes. And my favorite fiction is The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien.
Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?
My Kindle. I can read on it. Reading makes me happy. And it makes me smart.
Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
This wasn’t the last time, but it sticks with me. So, we were eating with a few families after church one Sunday. Long story short: I realize my hamburger is raw in the middle. Pastor’s wife notices and soon the whole table knows and I’LL TAKE CARE OF IT, JUST QUIT STARING AT ME AND TALKING ABOUT IT!!! (in my head, not out loud)
Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water)
Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?
Again with the favorites… LOTR, Wreck-It-Ralph, Les Miserables, The Sound of Music… I could keep going.
Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?
I was homeschooled. I was a teenager. I have no idea where I fit in the spectrum.
Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
One of two places: near the beach in Florida (in a beach house) or in Brown County, Indiana.
Question 17: PC or Mac?
Right now, PC. My laptop is a PC and I’ve had it for four years. It’s taken a beating, but it still works beautifully.
Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
The last romantic gesture such a person did was save the world. IT’S TRUE! Elend Venture saved the world! So did Samwise Gamgee. And Clark Kent! And the Tenth Doctor!
