Green Girl tagged me with this sinful post:
"Sometimes you can learn more about a person by what they don’t tell you. Sometimes you can learn a lot from the things they just make up. If you are tagged with this Meme, lie to me. Then tag 7 other folks (one for each deadly sin) and hope they can lie."
Whew. The pressure is on. Good lying. Here goes:
What is your biggest contribution to the world?
Gosh, what a tough question. It's a real toss up between those highly acclaimed academic tomes on the principles of cold fusion and my spicy spaghetti recipe.
What do your coworkers have that you wish was yours?
Anonymity. I get hounded all the time by eager tweens begging me to please, please, please write a sequel to Dragon Wishes.
What did you eat last night?
Monte Cristo sandwich, fries, and baked fudge with ice cream and whipped cream. It's a real tragedy to have one of those metabolisms that just won't let you put on any weight. What's a girl to do but eat?
What really lights your fire?
Apathy. I'm so tired of men who know what they want. Couldn't they be wishy washy for a change? Not know what they want? Take years to propose? Why do they have to hurry us so?
What is the last thing that really pissed you off?
The recent election demonstrations in Iran. How dare those forward thinkers try and bring about democracy, or even fairness in election voting returns. What do they think this is, the 21st century?
Name something you hoard and keep from others:
Manuscripts. Move over Emily Dickinson. Just wait till I die. Oh, the treasures the world will find.
What’s the laziest thing you ever did?
Gave one word answers to open-ended questions.
Disclaimer: I may be an author, but I'm not sure I'm the wittiest one when it comes to answering questions like these. It's all that Catholic upbringing. I can feel the weight of Purgatory bearing upon me as I fudge the truth. I swear! May these writers be more unencumbered in their yarn spinning :-)
