Writer's Block: Back to the future

If you were 12 and could see yourself now, do you think you'd be happy or disappointed, and why?

I just had to answer this question. It's a good one. : ) I'd like to think a little of both, i've not changed too much, personality wise, and a lot of my friends are exactly the same as I had at that age. I miss it, good times.

I think i'd like the adult that i've become. (Only, i'm so not a grown up!) I'm still loyal to what I believe and I like to see myself as an individual with awesome taste. Hehe. My child self may be disappointed that i've not settled down in a relationship yet, but with the way my views have changed slightly, I now see that as a good thing. I'm sure my 12 year old self would understand that.

I think we'd be great friends, and I like to think I could tell her a few things to make the next few years a little easier as well.  : )

Writer's Block: Beam me up, Scotty

If you could be transported anywhere in the world, at any point in time, where and when would would you choose to live, and why?

Paris, Paris, Paris, Paris, Paris! I would love to live there. I've never even visited, but there are so many things I want to see and do, and more than that i'd love to live like a Parisian in such a beautiful city. If only my French were more than a few ill pronounced sentences! It is the place I fantasise about living, a holiday wouldn't be enough. A few months, maybe. : ) *daydreams*

Linger Competition!

Linger Cover LargeIn Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other.  Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past . . . and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack.  And Isabelle, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.

At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love -- the light and the dark, the warm and the cold -- in a way you will never forget.

Comes out in stores everywhere July 20th. Pre-order here.

Writer's Block: Leftovers of leftovers

What's the most unusual food you have ever eaten? Have you ever consumed anything without knowing precisely what it was and gotten sick when you found out?

Urm being a vegetarian, weird food isn't actually that common. But when I was in Florida I did ingest Macaroni Cheese Pizza, which in my opinion is just damn unnatural. : ) Along with Fruit Loops. One question? Fruit? *shudder* It was like eating a bowl of cardboard sugar, oh and your milk doesn't taste like milk. Sorry for the rant. I think i'll give in before I start bitching about the chocolate. : )

Oh and I didn't finish either, were both just a little weird for me. Hehe. I did feel really sick and ill after someone accidentally gave me chicken in a restaurant the other month. That made me dizzy and really not comfortable. : (

Writer's Block: Sunrise, Sunset

When you wake up, what's the first thing you think about? What's the last thing you think about before you fall asleep? Are they the same?

Urm. No?

Wake up = "No! It can't be morning already! I only just lay down. 5 more minutes..."

Falling Asleep = "I should really be sleeping right now, I will be so tired in the morning, Oh just one more check of Twitter."

My thought processes are so so deep. : )

Writer's Block: Change is good

If you could change one major thing about your life, whether a relationship, your job, your living situation, your school, etc., what would it be? Are you currently working toward a serious life transition?

All of the above? I'd do anything different. I'm bored being me. If I could swap lives with someone now for a little while, i'd do it, no questions asked. I want a new job, a different career, I'd quite like to meet my One True Love (TM) rather soon, preferably a Disney Prince or a Rock Star. : ) I want to move away from my home, i'm too independent to be back here, I want to live in the city. I want to live in Paris, that would be breath taking.

Yeah and I am doing... nothing in the way of trying to acheive those things, except maybe wishing and hoping. Basically. I can't move out until I have enough money, and my job doesn't pay me enough. Life swap? Please?
