QUESTIONS FOR ME TO ANSWER

  • Where were you when you realized what career you wanted to pursue? Explain.
    • I honestly was tired of being in retail business.  I worked for auto part stores for 16 years.  Then I was given an opportunity to work for a worldwide corporation and jumped on the band wagon.  I have never been more happy.
  • What age do you want to live to, and why?
    • I want to live till I’m well over a hundred.  Because life is full of happiness and joy and I will never be ready to leave it behind.
  • What book character most annoys you? Explain it.
    • Quinn from the Black Dagger Brotherhood Novels by J.R. Ward.  His character is a real pain and he is always on the “it’s my way or no way kick”.  Poor pitiful me, when things don’t go his way.  He dwells on the past too much.
  • What are your least and your most favorite of the 50 states? Explain.
    • My favorite states are all states with a coast line.  I love the ocean and the serenity it brings.  My least favorite states will be those in the North, since I hate cold weather and snow.
  • Where do you go when you need to feel comfortable, and why?
    • I will go to my room.  Because nothing is better than curling up under the covers and reading a good book.
  • What book do you most want to see made into a movie? Explain.
    • The Charley Davidson Series By: Darynda Jones.  Because not only are they exciting they are funny as hell!  I would love to see Charley Grim Reaper at work on the big screen.
  • What is your favorite type of weather? Explain.
    • Summer – Less pollen count and more beach weather.
  • What past life do you wish you had, and why?
    • I never considered having a past life.  Not sure, but maybe an ancient Egyptian Princess.  I have always found Egypt to be fascinating.
  • Which president would you want to meet? Explain.
    • Benjamin Franklin – because he is a scientist who was a key leader in electricity.  Where else would a/c come from.  
  • How did you find out about WordPress? Details please…
    • I was walking with a friend one day and she suggested I start a blog.  I checked online to compare and found wordpress.   
  • Where are you when you draft your blog posts? Explain!
    • At home or at work.  Depends on when I have a review due or if I have something I think I want to share at the time.
