Chelsea Owens nominated me and I’m feeling like opening up a bit this week, so…
Why did you start blogging & why have you kept blogging? I gave up on publishing my work and just wanted people to read it. Oddly enough, I actually got published, on paper, last year. One of my goals.
What is your favorite type of blog post to write? I like writing the animal essays. They take longer but they are the most satisfying.
What are your top 3 favorite blog posts? “How is a Pirate Better than a Handball”, “Why Salt is Better than a Woman” and “St. Osgyth and Her Terrible Horrible No-good Very Bad Life”. The first two were just fractured thoughts that came to me when I was half asleep and I decided to see if I could make them work.
What are some of your favorite things to do to relax? I like to watch detective movies from the thirties and forties, like The Saint, The Thin Man and Torchy Blaine…
What are 3 of your favorite things? I like to hear people laugh, a great cup of coffee with heavy cream and sleep with lots of dreams.
What are your proudest blogging moments? I don’t believe in pride.
What are your hobbies outside of blogging? Cooking and reading. I read modern trash, classics and non-fiction. The train-ride to work gives me a lot of reading time.
Describe your personality in 3 words: Kind introverted monster
What are your top 3 pet peeves? Willful stupidity, lack of creativity and hypocrisy.
What’s something your followers don’t know about you? I’m severely depressed and bipolar. I’ve got a black belt and I was a karate teacher for a while. I like hats.
As for nominees, Deb Whittam is always first on my list.
Robyn’s posts are always interesting, mostly on the subject of autism.
ESP is a man who likes to write.
Lately, I’ve been charmed by Rivergirl.
And, if you haven’t read River Dixon, yet, you’ve been missing out…
