It’s time for another round of questions and answers! This is technically one of those 1 Like = 1 Answer prompts on Twitter, but I like doing them for my blog – especially when they aren’t book related! So, let’s jump into this!
- How do you drink your tea?
With honey! My favorite tea is Tazo’s Baked Organic Cinnamon Apple (or some variation of those words lol). It tastes like Autumn in a mug and warm hugs. I just add a bit of honey to it and I don’t take the tea bag out until I finish it.
- Favorite dessert?
Ooo, this is hard. I love a good cheesecake, but I’m also a sucker for cream puffs. Put them in front of me, and I’ll legit eat them all. But a good ice cream is great as well.
- Favorite season and why?
Probably Fall, I love boots and cozy sweaters. But I don’t really have a solid favorite. I enjoy all the seasons, and I need them all. I need to freeze in the winter and thaw in the summer. Then repeat.
- What cheers you up?
Staring at my dog. Or watching Farscape.
- Dogs or cats?
Both? But I have a mild allergy to cats, so I have to be a bit careful around them. I’ve never owned a cat, just two doggos.
- What is your dream holiday?
Cozying up in a cabin in the Swiss Alps.
But I’m also kind of torn, because a tropical paradise would be nice as well.
- How many kids do you want?
At least two.
- Favorite weather?
A cool 75 degrees with a bit of sun. But I love listening to the rain and a storm if I’m writing or reading.
- What would your last meal be?
I’ve never ever thought about this, so I have no actual idea.
- You can spend 24 hours anywhere, any year, where do you choose?
Probably sometime between 1961-63. When the US chose 7 pilots to do the first manned US flights into Space during the Space Race. It must’ve been an amazing time to be alive, to witness it, and the hype surrounding the events. The whole US working towards one goal.
OR I’d want to find out what actually happened in Ykaterinburg to the Romanovs. I like the fairytale that the animated movie and the Broadway show has created, but it would be nice(?) to know the truth.
- If you were a ghost, who or where would you haunt?
I would probably haunt a bookstore. Tbh.
- What is your family ancestry?
Scottish and Slovenian and something else that is eluding me at this time.
- What scares you?
A lot of things. But I’m not a fan of being alone in the dark. I have too active of an imagination for that shit. Also, scary movies that involve possession/hauntings (especially if they are based on real events) or anything that involves the capturing of evil things in film or in mirrors. I just – nope.
- What are you most grateful for?
My doggo. He’s my whole world.
- Dream Job?
Full time, JK Rowling success, Author. Give me that franchise!
- Do you believe in aliens?
Yep. The universe is too big for there to not be anyone/thing else out there. Do I believe in little green men? Eh. I won’t discount it, but I doubt our first contact (if /when it happens) is going to come from bulbous, big eyed, little green men.
- Favorite sport?
Eh, I guess soccer. I played for quite a few years when I was younger and enjoyed it.
- How do you relax after a long day?
Shower and a beer or wine. Then food and Netflix.
- If you could meet one historical figure, who would you choose and why?
Honestly, I have no idea.
- If you had to be a teacher, what subject would you teach?
I have the degree; I’d just need one for teaching.
- Describe your perfect day.
I’d be able to sleep in late – like 11, but when I wake up it still be early morning, so I’d have a full day to do things. I’d have coffee and breakfast. And then I’d just be able to lounge around to read and write and pause to walk my dog and maybe take a nice long bath, and then have some yummy food, maybe sushi or Chinese food. Then I’d sit outside by the fire pit, wrapped in warm sweater with a few friends, and a bottle or two of wine and we’d just hang out chatting.
- Describe yourself in a sentence.
Always there, even when I shouldn’t be.
- Who makes you laugh the most?
My dad. We have basically the same sense of humor, much to my mom’s dismay LOL.
- What superpower would you choose?
Apparition. I know that a HP thing, but damn, it would come in handy. Being able to just * poof * to places. I’d never have to pay for gas again!
- Favorite animal?
Outside of dogs? Nope, it’s dogs.
- Biggest accomplishment?
Finishing this post? Jk.
Probably my Girl Scouts Bronze Award I did years ago in England. My troop organized a basketball tournament for a group of kids with special needs whose funding had been cut. We got the Boy Scouts, a group of military personnel and my troop (obv) to play in this big tournament, and at the end there were certificates and little pins handed out. The smiles on their faces and the joy that radiated from them for just being able to play the game they loved dearly was the best thing ever. It wasn’t about winning, but just playing the game and having fun.
You may have seen this on Twitter, but if you want to to this, I tag you!
