Just when I was needing some inspiration for getting back into my blog, I was tagged by the talented Rachel Funk Heller for the Eleven Questions Game. You will definitely want to check out her blog and read the answers to her eleven questions. Here’s her answer to number 4; I want to be at this dinner:
“4. You can invite any three people in the world for a dinner–anyone alive. Who are your guests?
Bill Moyers, Rachel Maddow, and Sting”
Here’s how the game is played:
1. You must post the rules. ￼
2. Answer the questions on your blog. Create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
3. Tag eleven people and link to them.
4. Let them know you’ve tagged them
So, here’s what you’ve all been wanting to know about me:
What is your favorite cruciferous vegetable? None. Really, I am not a fan of broccoli, cauliflower, etc. and so don’t eat them. I even tried broccoli sprouts once, thinking to get the health advantages, and had to feed the bitter things to my hens. And they weren’t thrilled with them either.
At what age did you realize Santa Claus, might not be real? I was under the age of 10 because by then I was desperately in love with Han Solo and Santa was definitely a kid thing. I don’t remember though if I was 8 or 9 when I realized that Santa used the same wrapping paper as Mom. Hmmmmm.
Where is the worst place you have ever made whoopee? In a very prickly thicket, with only a thin blanket on the ground. Ex-boyfriend thought it was ‘romantic’ to do it outdoors. Sure, fine, but fewer sticks underneath would’ve made it a lot more comfortable.
What is your favorite rodent? Rats. Really, I’ve had multiple pet rats. They are very affectionate if raised right, and highly trainable. Pet rats come in lots of varieties and color schemes. I mean come on…isn’t that cute?
List your five favorite letters of the alphabet. In no particular order: H, I, J, K, and L.
If you could be a Spice Girl, which one would you be? Probably Sporty Spice, I would love to be able to do backflips.
If you were a super hero, what is your super hero name and your special power? My special power would be talking to animals, and my name would be Chatterbox. I would wander the streets chatting up the pets of your favorite celebrities and then blog about all their deepest and darkest secrets.
What is your Drag Queen name? Take the name of your first pet, and the name of the first street you lived on. Inky Regatta, which conjures up all sorts of images. Hmm, I feel a new character coming on…
Boxers or Briefs? Boxers all the way.
You’ve just made an embarrassing fast dash into an elevator car, after you make it and the door closes, you are panting and out of breath, you look up and there is your favorite celebrity of all time: what do you say? “Quick Han Solo, tell me again what a scoundrel you are!” You notice that’s the second time I’ve mentioned him?
What is your favorite Halloween costume of all time? The chain mail bikini a very old friend made for me one year, worn over my leather bikini, with a swirling cape and trusty sword at my side. Then I wore it to a Renaissance Faire the next year. Oh, what fun that weekend was!
So now it’s my turn! I get to ask the questions, here’s what I want to know about all of you!
Dream vacation anywhere, and I mean anywhere; here on earth, out in the cosmos, favorite fantasy realm or time period, and why?
When did you first realize you were a writer?
How would you like to reach bestselling author status: traditional publishing, with agent, editor and one of the big 6? Or go it alone, a-la Amanda Hocking style, self-published all the way? (If you are already there, which route did you take, and how’d that go for you?)
Last movie you saw, and what’d you think?
You can no longer write! Gasp! How do you express your creativity now?
If you could wave a magic wand and fix just one thing, anything you like, be it pollution, politics, or maybe just the way your hair frizzes when there’s too much humidity, what would it be and why?
Is there life after death? Do you want there to be?
Favorite ice cream flavor?
Who’s on your list? You know, the exception list, as in: “Honey, yeah, Han Solo just called and he’s good to go. You know he’s on my list.” (Ok, so he’s my favorite example)
You can take a trip, and find out 100% absolutely without a doubt that there is a God, but the process of finding out takes a couple weeks, and involves some risk and personal physical sacrifice and pain. Would you take the trip?
What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon as a kid?
Inquiring minds want to know:
I look forward to reading all of your answers! Happy Easter to all, may your day be filled with love, joy and the blessings of your family.
And because I just couldn’t resist:
How fuuny, with Han Solo! You know he’s a character, right? Sorry to burst your bubble. Do you have a crush on Harrison Ford, too? My dream vacation would be a tropical beach. I don’t care where, as long as there is a warm breeze and a batido de coco in my hand. I used to write as a kid, but was scared to go after it. So, I didn’t really realize I was a writer until about five years ago. My favorite flavor of ice cream is Phish Food by Ben and Jerry’s. Yum. And my list would include: Daniel Sunjata, Laz Alonzo, Denzel Washington (old, but still hot), Will Smith, Adam Rodriguez, Taylor Kitch, and Josh Duhmel. How many do I get?
Characters are celebs to me! Sadly not real though, and I prefer Han to Harrison. Whenever I see Harrison in interviews he looks and acts stoned. Not a judgement, just doesn’t make him very dynamic or interesting. Han on the other hand….well, you already know! 😉 Thanks for playing along!
That is the cutest rat picture ever. How did they get a teddy bear that tiny??? Funny about Han Solo, when I was younger it was Luke but now Han definitely seems hotter. What great questions you thought up! Can’t wait to read everyone’s answers.
I know! That baby rat is too adorable! Had to use it, thanks for reading!
Ha ha! I love it! Chatterbox! :oD Anyone who didn’t have eyes for Han Solo couldn’t see properly. That’s all I’m saying. Love him. Loved your answers, they were such fun. That picture is absolutely adorable! Thanks for playing girlfriend.
Thanks my friend, and I agree entirely! The questions were hugely fun to answer and to write!
Awesome answers and I loved your questions. The rat picture is so cute. And Han Solo. Yum.
Bwa-ha-ah, I’m so glad you had some fun with my dumb-ass questions. Love, love me some Han Solo and the rat picture is just adorable. Thanks for playing along.
A great way to get back into blogging! Thanks for the tag!
I see you’ve tagged me. How interesting. I guess I’d best get to preparing my responses.
Fun questions and answers. You and Han Solo? He’s mine, Serena, sorry.
I guess you’ll have to visit my blog to learn my answers to your questions.
