Eleven Fun Questions

 

The look on her face, lol!

Natalie Damschroder tagged me (boy, it’s been a long time since I wrote that!) with 11 fun questions.

 

  1. What foreign country would you most like to travel to that you haven’t visited yet?

 

Since I’ve never been to ANY foreign country, I’d say Ireland. Or maybe Australia.    Yes, both English speaking.

2. Name your most coveted gadget—unlimited budget, and something you don’t currently have.

Hmm, I’ve been pretty good about updating my gadgets this year. I’m mostly tempted by the Kindle Fire, though, I’d have to say.

3. Do you have brothers and sisters? How often do you get to see them?

2 brothers, and I see them about once a month, though they both live about 15 minutes away from me! One was working 2 jobs and the other is in a new job/new relationship, so they’re as busy as I am.

4. How much of your own wish fulfillment is put into your books?

Every time you see a heroine with the Little Red Hen syndrome? That’s me in my books. Every time a hero steps up to help her? That’s my wish fulfillment. (Shall I include photos of baskets of laundry and stacks of dishes to illustrate?)

5. If you dug into your basement/attic/back closet/whatever storage space, what item would you find that would make you go “I WONDERED where that was!”?

Come to think of it, my AlphaSmart. I don’t use it, but my grandmother did when she couldn’t talk anymore. It still has “I Love You” typed on it. Well, damn. Now I need to look for that.

6. Have you ever had direct encounters with a wild animal? Describe the circumstances.

While sitting around a campfire in California in the middle of nowhere, we heard a mountain lion below us. I grabbed my son, who was then 5, and hauled him into the cabin while my father tried to convince my grandfather that yes, it had been a wild animal.

7. Who is your favorite non-famous musician/singer? If possible, provide a link to their music/website.

Of course I have to say my husband’s band Pitchfork. They are pretty good, if you like country. (Fred’s the guitar player on the right)

8. What’s your favorite NFL team? Or professional team in general, if football isn’t your thing.

Eh. Not a sports person. I have a Spurs shirt, and used to love the Bulls, but now I just don’t pay attention. I do like to watch baseball, because it’s a peaceful game, but I don’t have a team.

9. What was the most fun job you ever had, besides your current one(s)?

Oddly, when I worked at Winn’s, which was a five and dime. I worked in the fabric department, which meant I got first dibs on any fabric coming in. I would spend my entire shift getting inspired, and spent most of my paycheck on fabric. Some nights I’d go home and sew an outfit for the next day!

10. Are you living where you want to live? If not, where’s the home of your heart?

I’ll always live in Texas, but I might like a summer place on the beach somewhere.

11. What book are you reading right now?pastedGraphic.pdf
