Tagged By Jenny!!


Every once in a while, someone like Jenny gives me some love and tags me in one of the floating blogosphere memes. I love answering the questions, but I'm too lazy to think of any of my own!! Plus I am sick with the flu AGAIN, so I can't be trusted to be coherent. So here goes:

Jenny's Questions For The People She Tagged

1 What is something you dread?
Public speaking. It's not that I'm horrible at it, it's just that I have no filter and I'm not very PC so I just end up saying whatever I'm thinking...

2 What is your favorite food?

 Is this a trick question? It's be quicker if I say what I don't like. I don't like cheese, except on pizza.

3 What kind of car was your first car?

A Toyota. I've always driven Toyota <insert Asian driver joke here>

4 Picture taker or camera hog?

Picture taker for sure.

5 Do you have any pets?
Yes, I have a doberman (See above). Her name is Tallis. My husband named her after some Australian rugby player. (Don't feel bad she's on a leash that day. My parents were looking after her for an hour at the time while I signed her up to puppy socialization class and my dad fed her 4 hotdogs which is a lot for an eight week old puppy).
 
6 What would you do if you got to meet your movie star crush?
That's for me to know and the restraining order lawyers to find out...haha that's a joke and you're smiling but somewhere out there Ben Barnes and Gerard Butler are feeling a chill up their spine! <-- seriously, I am delirious.


7 What would you do if you met your literary crush?
I'd have to fight off Kate Daniels for him and you know what? In the end, I'd probably just chicken out and run away!!

8 Socks on or off when you sleep?
Off! Off! Off!

9 What book(s) have you been mad enough to throw across the room?
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. See THIS POST for some major book angst.

10 What book(s) have you hugged to your chest in love?
 Anything by Melina Marchetta.

11 What was the name of a childhood stuffed animal?
I didn't have many toys when I was a kid but once the sisters at my church gave me a Arista doll. Arista in case anyone doesn't know is Ariel from The Little Mermaid's sister. My younger sister got the Ariel doll because she was younger. Blah. Anyway, despite being a mermaid, her job was being a martial arts instructor or a rock climber thus paving the way for many of my current literary heroines.

I hope you enjoyed a sneak peak into the crazy world that is my brain. Thanks again for tagging me Jenny!!

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one that wanted to launch Mockingjay across the room.

    CUTE PUPPY!! She looks like a total sweetheart. And who doesn't like cheese? LOL

    Thanks for sharing a bit more about yourself, Lan. It's nice to meet you. :)

    1. Aren't these posts fun? I think I kinda like them better than the book reviews!

  4. Fun answers! I'm not much of a dog person, but your dog really is cute. :) I loved and hated Mockingjay, too. I don't think I've ever had such a strong reaction to a book before.

    1. LOL Kathy. I feel like I am the only dog person around these days. Everyone seems to love cats but I think they're devil spawn. I enjoyed the whole Hunger Games series but Mockingjay still made me furious!

  5. Awww...such a cute puppy, Lan! And I totally agree about public speaking :)

    1. I think I've found something much worse than public speaking...having to tell off someone who is too old to not know better!

  6. Your puppy is so cute! I love animals...

    I hate public speaking, too, because I just get the kind of scared that requires an emergency bathroom run. And, I didn't know you hated Mockingjay! I'm going to have to read your review. Were you a KatnissxGale shipper?

    I like your answer for meeting your movie star crush, lol. Classic and awesome answer. That's the person I'd be running away from, not the fictional crush!

    1. Ahh Cathy, you obviously haven't had the pleasure of meeting Curran Lennart. Talk to me about running away when you do!

      Delete
    2. Oh and on the Katniss and Gale thing, no, in the end I wanted Gale as far away from Katniss as possible. For his own good.

  8. "That's for me to know and the restraining order lawyers to find out"

    Hee hee. That's hilarious. Though, not for poor Ben and Gerard. ;)

    Tallis is very cute! Thanks for sharing a pic.

    I need to read more Marchetta books! I've only read On The Jellico Road.

    1. I'd probably say that Jellicoe Road is my fav of the Marchetta books so far but her others are still top notch compared to some of the other YA stuff that's around.

  9. Your answers are so much fun! I especially loved # 6 and 7;) I could not agree more with you about Mockingjay. Drove me insane. Now I am heading over to Goodreads to check out Melina Marchetta, because I have not read her.

  12. Your dog is adorable!
    I must sleep with my socks on. I wonder what this says about my personality... ha!

  13. I love these questions thingy's. It really helps you get to know other bloggers. I'd like to point out that I HATE socks on while sleeping. It's the worst. My feet feel all constrained. I dont even really like long pants sometimes...I have to roll them up intil they're almost shorts!
    Nice dog by the way. I have to take mine to be socialized sometime (he's almost 1 now. I am a horrible parent) but I'm taking him to training in a few weeks! Happy B-Day to your dog!

  14. I love your answers to #6 and #11! And I totally relate to #1. Awesome answers!

  15. What an adorable doggy! One of my friends had a doberman and she was one of the best dogs I've ever known. So friendly and obedient. I'd like to have one some day.

  17. Buh... you don't like CHEESE? *gasp*
    But if you like pizza, all is forgiven.
