My Life’s Quirks – Getting To Know You…AAD Style

In case you haven’t noticed *snort*, I have been featuring a different Author After Dark Featured Author every week since January.  Near the end of each interview, I ask each author the same four questions.  These are the questions that I have titles “Questions about YOU”.  I’ve decided to ask you guys the same four questions I ask each author.  I think it will be fun to get to know each other a little, don’t you?

I’ll answer first.

 

What is your favorite movie?

I would have to say it’s a tie between When Harry Met Sally, The Princess Bride and Love Actually.

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Rolo or Oreo.  Depending on my mood.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?

Definitely a morning person…but not annoyingly so.

Tell us something people might be surprised to learn about you?

Hmm..what to say to this one?  Okay, how about this…  I live across the street from a cemetery.  When we first moved into this house, my daughter was two and we couldn’t really explain to her what that was so we said nothing.  Ignore it and it will go away, right?  Soon though she started calling it the ‘decoration place’.  Um…okay.  That’ll work.  Soon after that, she comes into the house all pleased with herself as she is holding an arm full of fake flowers.  They had been blown onto our lawn during a storm.  She wanted to put them in her room.  I said no.  She wanted to put them on our kitchen table.  I said no.  They came from freaking grave stones after all!  So she ‘planted’ them outside in our flower bed.  It was equal parts cute and creepy.

So now it’s your turn!

Getting to know you…AAD style.  Just another one of my life’s quirks.

  1. Michele says:

    What is your favorite movie? That’s tough..IDK that I have A favorite, there are several that I always come back to: The Power of One, What a Girl Wants, Dirty Dancing, Sixteen Candles, Skins, Sweet Home Alabama…I could keep going… 🙂

    What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? I love all ice cream!!!!

    Are you a morning person or a night owl? Night owl, though I’m usually too tired to stay up late much anymore. lol

    Tell us something people might be surprised to learn about you? I work in radio…there are 5 stations in our cluster. I meet many famous people because of my job & I love, love, love what I do!

  2. What a fun idea!!
    What is your favorite movie? It’s a toss up, but I love Casablanca (this is probably my most favourite), Amelie and this old German film with Peter Faulk called WIngs of Desire.

    What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?From Baskin Robbins I love Pistachio-Almond and Love Potion #32, it’s this crazy raspberry, chocolate combo. From the grocery store I like butterscotch-ripple.

    Are you a morning person or a night owl? I’m a morning person who loves naps and if I get one can also be a night owl. Did that make sense?

    Tell us something people might be surprised to learn about you? I hate commedy clubs and candid camera shows. They give me crazy anxiety. I think it’s because I don’t like to see people get picked on or maybe because I know if I was in a situation like that I wouldn’t handle it with very much grace.

    You may have a future goth on your hands with your daughter, Julie. That’s massively cute.

    What is your favorite movie? For absolute all-time favorites it’s a tie between Braveheart and the Two Towers. I love epic movies focused on heroism and honor. For romantic movies, my favorites are Pride and Prejudice (Collin Firth version) and Jane Eyre (Ruth Wilson version).

    What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? Chocolate chip cookie dough (with a vanilla base) – yum!

    Are you a morning person or a night owl? Definitely a night owl – I stay up too late as often as I can. If I could cut the need for sleep out of my life all together, I would.

    Tell us something people might be surprised to learn about you? I’ve lived in six different states, and moved 17 times over the course of my life, mostly as a youth. Strangely enough, neither of my parents were military types – they just enjoyed moving. : ) I must say, even as an adult, the wander lust is a hard thing to kill. All that moving gets into your blood. Every 2 years I start to get a bit twitchy, yearning for new scenery and fresh beginnings. Fortunately I now have a house, a husband, and a dog keeping me grounded, and firmly fixed in one location.

    🙂

  4. Carolline says:

    haha that is cute about the flowers, I am sure a photo of your face when that happened would have been priceless.

    What is your favorite movie?
    Dirty Dancing followed by Easy A, The Breakfast Club and Rent.

    What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
    I’m easy any ice cream! lol. I love gelato mint if I could have any.

    Are you a morning person or a night owl?
    Hands down a night owl, I can stay up days on end if needed. Ask me to wake up at 6am it will be rough, if it happens at all. If I know I have to be up for something I will literally stay awake rather than try and rely on any of my 7 alarm clocks, of which I will hear zero of them.

    Tell us something people might be surprised to learn about you?
    Most people think that I am a huge partier and very outgoing and while I can be; I’d much rather be reading a book and hanging with my dogs. So, people might be surprised that I am actually an introvert. I would rather spend time by myself or my few close friends and family than around other people. I force myself to go out and mingle with people because I fear turning into that 40year old lady with 30 cats and never leaves her house. ~ not that anything is wrong with that if that is your style. 🙂

  5. 1. Favorite movie? Hm-m-m, A Beautiful Mind but I just love all those Jane Austen novel movies, also love Groundhog Day.

    2. Ice Cream? I know its blasphemous, but I don’t care for ice cream. I’d much rather have rice pudding or bread pudding with whipped cream.

    3. Lark or Owl? Definitely an Owl married to a Lark.

    4. Something no one knows about me? This is hard…I’m pretty much an open book. Well here goes…I never paid any attention to how I buttered my toast until some blogger, who shall remain nameless, said she buttered her toast to the very edges. Now I must do it this way, it has become an obsession. Oh the power of suggestion!

  6. Allison says:

    Favorite Movie: It really depends but some are French Kiss with Kevin Kline & Meg Ryan (not very many people know this one surprisingly), Role Models, Super Bad, Galaxy Quest, The Usual Suspects, Pulp Fiction, 12 Monkeys…I guess I could keep going here, ha.

    Ice Cream: BR’s mint chocolate chip or a Cold Stone mix of sweet cream, roasted almonds, fudge and bananas.

    Morning or Night: Night, I wasn’t even into getting up to watch cartoons when I was a little kid!

    Something people would be surprised to learn: I’m kind of, just the tiniest bit, afraid of stairs…I have friends who are claustrophobic but that totally doesn’t bother me. I have, for most of my life pictured myself falling down a set of stairs, at this point I think I’m beginning to expect it to happen. It’s a very weird thing to be freaked out about I know!

  7. Michele – It is SO awesome that you love your job. And Dirty Dancing! Great movie!

    CdnMrs – Wow…your movie choices are extra ‘grown up’. lol And I am SO with you about the comedy clubs and the candid camera stuff. I do not get any enjoyment at all while watching someone else’s embarrassment.

    Jessica – No sleep! *gasp* I could never do that. I love my sleep. lol

    Carolline – I have never seen Rent. I really must.

    Dot – OMG! Some blogger out there is so anal that she must butter every last inch of her toast! Whoever could that be? *blinks innocently* I can’t believe you remember that! lol And isn’t your toast so much better now that you butter every last little bit? 😉

    Allison – OMG I used to own French Kiss on VHS but got rid of it when my machine finally died! I had totally forgotten about that. It’s a very cute movie!

  8. What is your favorite movie? Without a doubt Blade Runner.

  11. Northwoman says:

    What is your favorite movie?
    I love musicals and could name many but I’m going to go with The Sound of Music.

    What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
    This is a tough choice between caramel and Butter Pecan. I’ll go with Butter Pecan.

    Are you a morning person or a night owl?
    I tend to burn the candle at both ends, but prefer to be a night owl.

    Tell us something people might be surprised to learn about you?
    I’m not a quitter. When I was in grad school, I had my parents’ boat and planned to water ski for the afternoon with 2 guy friends. I managed by some freak luck to back the trailer at the boat landing and get the boat in the water and then the boat battery was dead. (I killed no people and destroyed no property – a major accomplishment) I’m not mechanical AT ALL but I called my brother to ask him, “Would the car’s battery work in the boat?” He told me yes so without hardly any tools, I took the battery from the car and installed it in the boat. The 2 guys were not car guys at all, no help at all in fact. But I was determined and we had a great afternoon water skiing. Then I took the battery from the boat and put it back in the car, got the boat back on the trailer and went home.

  12. Fave movie: Love Actually, Breakfast Club

    Fave ice cream: dulce de leche from hagen daz…or strawberry

    morning person/night owl?: in my fantasy life i’m a morning person, but i stay up entirely too late for that nonsense to ever happen so let’s go with night owl

    something you may not know about me: well, i have a benign brain tumor the size of a ping pong ball so i’m no longer allowed to ride roller coasters, jump on a trampoline, drive bumper cars, take up kick boxing, do inverted yoga poses or sex stuff that has me standing on my head…not that i ever did sexy stuff while standing on my head but it’s off the list now, oh, and the space between my nostril and my upper lip is nub forever…but other than that i’m totally healthy.

    ps – where have you been? i’m totally loving this blog!
