Krissy’s 11 Questions for me and My Answers:
1.   What’s the most recent book you’ve read?
The last book I read was actually a second read. It was Jay Asher’s Thirteen Reasons Why
2.  What’s a really embarrassing thing that has happened to you?
Hah – Probably many, many things. But the most vivid one was when I was six or seven. It was Easter Sunday and my best friend and I wore pastel dresses and white tights. For some reason we ended up at a farm after church. Perfectly normal, right? We were so busy talking to each other that we didn’t realize we stepped into a giant pile of manure. We were covered in it up to our knees! The Farmer had to hose us off. We were pretty mortified.
3.  What would you choose for your last meal?
All the sushi I could eat prepared by my favorite sushi chef, and a large dark chocolate raspberry Godiva milkshake with whipped cream. (I don’t do dairy…so if it were my last meal, I’d splurge.)
4.  Which song do you secretly rock out to and have absolutely no idea why? 
Whatever song happens to be running through my head at the time. Which is currently alternating between the theme songs from ‘Monk’ and ‘True Blood’.
5.  What is something other people do that irritates you like no other? 
Throwing trash on the floor and/or leaving crumbs and sticky stuff everywhere. Sticky stuff is my ultimate pet peeve.
6.  What is something you do that irritates other people like no other?
Forgetting to turn off the light in the bathroom…oopsies.
7.  What is your dream vacation?
I was lucky enough to experience my dream vacation in Tahiti in 2010. You can see some of my photos in the post Storytelling with Pictures. But it would be beyond awesome is to go back there again…maybe even for an extended stay!
8.  What is something that you don’t know a lot about but would like to?
I would like to know more about writing nonfiction and poetry.
9.  Which perfume or cologne makes you weak in the knees?
Tuscany for Men
10.  Dogs or cats?
Dogs. Bull Terriers in particular.

    Hi, Christine!

    It was so fun to meet you at SCBWI, and thanks very much for the award. As you can probably see from my infrequent posts, I have not gotten my blogging act together lately. It’s always on the list. Sigh.

    Anyway, thanks for thinking of me. I look forward to reading more of your blog and getting to know you better.
