I’ve been picked…..oh no, yay, maybe, who knows.

just kidding. No seriously, I have been picked. For grins and giggles and we all know we need a little bit of that from time to time now don’t we? So you get a break, for one post, one post only, from my crazy tech mumble and book information.

So here’s the deal. I get to answer her questions, and send some out on my own. The choice to participate is all up to you, nobody’s feelings getting hurt. It is all in fun, but it also is a get to know the person, don’t you think? Especially all of us authors out there and the lovely people of the blogosphere. Is that a real word? Remind me to check on that later.

Thanks to the lovely ioniamartin for getting me involved. You should check out her page, awesome reviews and is very entertaining to me. 

1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and eleven random facts about you.
3. Answer the questions given to you in the tagger’s post.
4. Create eleven new questions and tag new people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and let them know they have been tagged.



This pic is from 2005, there were not any rules stating from WHEN the picture was taken.

11 random facts about me:

1.I love the color red so much I throw it in my hair in a bright flamboyant kind of way(not literally, think about the mess that would be)

2.I am a huge Doctor Who fan; I fell in love with the 4th and there are no less than 30 items sitting around in my house at this moment. I sign my books with my sonic screwdriver pen (I wish I had that picture to post)

3. As much rock music I listen to (Disturbed is my favorite, just laying it out there), I enjoy true classical and…..shhhhh…….I heart ABBA so much I ran the 8-track out a few times it had to be replaced. (remember I’m not THAT old, I was a kid at the time). 

4. To go with the last one, I have actually met in person band members from from Disturbed multiple times, Collective Soul, Ra, and Drowning Pool. I’m diggin on Damon Johnson right now, he’s got some great music out there including becoming a member of the ever loving Thin Lizzy. I think I have gone to over 30 concerts.

5.I hate vegetables. I’m an anti-vegetarian. Not the people, just the icky greens on my plate. I’m sure there’s some pasta I can cover it with. 

6. My confidence seems high, but deep down inside I am always that little girl that never wanted to grow up so I look for approval.

7. Biggest fear is a needle. Yeah, not gonna happen. I think I was 6 when it took about 4 people to hold me down. I do not submit easily.

8. I’m a huge mythology fan that spreads well beyond the scope of just Greek and Roman. Right now I am really into Norse mythology.

9. I dread wearing high heels. Even though I’m a short 5’2 and I would think they would be awesome, there is a 75% chance you will see me take a tumble and a 90% chance of seeing me walking in the streets carrying them.

10. I love surprises, but dislike romantic surprises

11.I am obsessed with tiger’s and their endangerment. Trafficking is bad stuff to me. I wrote an essay in college about that and got to meet the “babies” while I interviewed the keepers. (2yrs old and they weren’t small) at the Nashville Zoo before it moved. The white tiger is an even more endangered species and can only be from a Bengal line. DNA mutation, not an albino. They are/were worshiped in India where they are mostly found, although at this point I doubt there are any more in the wild.

Main Questions from ionia for those she picked on 😉

1.  Who tells you you’re crazy? My other half of my brain. They can’t decide who’s day it is

2. What makes you mad faster than anything else? being woke up 5 minutes before my alarm goes off

3.  Big family or small family? Small, big is messy and too much drama

4. How many pets and what kind? 1 dog -Ares, miniature pinscher, 1 cat -River, Tabby, a deceased dwarf frog Rockstar 

5.  Best Place you’ve ever eaten. Buga (Flower festival in Germany) I stepped off the plain, our sponsors took me there so my parents could get over their jet lag. The very first, and BEST Bratwurst I ever ate. 

6. Most annoying song you’ve ever heard. Anything by Justin Bieber

7. Dumbest thing you’ve ever said to someone “I could have sworn it was Simon & Garfunkel and not Kansas” (and I love both. smh)

8. Age you were at first kiss. Nine I think. I was more of a “you’re going to kiss me and oh by the way, you’re my boyfriend. 

9. What did you want to be when you were little? Gymnast

10. what did you grow up to be? I didn’t grow up. I write 😉

  1. You lady–are a genius! I should have thought that there was no requirement on how old the picture could be. You are now a superhero.

    • as late as this is, I just have to say….I like to look for the technicalities. If I could slap an old high school photo up of me I sure as heck would.
