Three Things About Me
- I am very easily amused. I burst out laughing at the simplest things. Most people notice this and assume I am an idiot, and I’m not going to deny the fact that I may very well be an idiot. 🙂
- The upside of item #1 is that it does not take much to make me happy. Give me a book, some coffee, and some introvert time and I’m good. I’m not a BMW. I don’t require a complicated and expensive maintenance routine.
- I enjoy self-deprecating humor. (One time, I used the word “self-deprecating” when talking to my dad and he said, “Self-defecating? Does that mean you’ve reached the point in your life that you can take a s–t without having someone else wipe your ass?”)
The Questions I Have to Answer
- Weird question: Are you afraid of the dark?
Not really. The only times I am are when I’m driving in an unfamiliar area or when I get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and I feel like monsters (i.e., cats) might attack me.
- What is your favorite genre to write? Or, what genre do you wish you could write?
Fiction, more specifically young adult fiction. I wish I could write more nonfiction (you know, the kind with footnotes and endnotes and in-depth citations of sources), but ain’t nobody got time for that.
- What are your thoughts on vampires? As in, do you find them corny, overdone, classic, entertaining, or something else?
I really liked vampires until the Twilight series came about, then my interest waned rapidly. I still prefer vampires over werewolves, though.
- Your favorite movie, along with your favorite actor/actress.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Favorite actor: John Cassavetes (favorite living actor: Hayden Christensen, only because he looks good. He is a horrible actor). Favorite actress: Susan Lucci (favorite dead actress: Ava Gardner, but I haven’t seen any of her movies. It’s ’cause she was married to Frank Sinatra).
- The last book you read.
Peter Kreeft’s Jesus Shock. It’s super short and very insightful. Honestly, they better make Dr. Kreeft a doctor of the Church once he passes on.
I always cheat and say that anyone who follows and/or reads this blog can participate, and the same applies here.
…And Their Questions
- Weird question (actually, all these questions are somewhat weird): If you could live inside a TV show or movie, which would it be?
- If you had the time, money, and/or incentive to learn a foreign language, which would you learn?
- Who is your favorite philosopher?
- What is something you always think “what if” about?
- What quote do you try to live by?
