I’m not a fan of the award thingies, mostly due to the whole chain-mail idea of them; however, I am a fan of sharing people’s sites and connecting and learning more about everyone.
So when Len over at Len’s Daily Diary mentioned my site, of course I answered …
a few days a week later. He is just the sort of upright, intelligent, honest, kind, humble, and great writer you’ll want to follow, anyway. So check out his stuff.
Here are the questions he posed to me, with my answers:
1.What is your fondest memory of childhood?
As an adult, I feel my childhood images have blended into a kaleidoscope soup of random feelings and sunshine moments. Trying to pull one, fondest shard is a daunting task. I do know that I’d pick from amongst my family vacation moments.
My parents took me and my brother and sister on a vacation every year. The funny thing is that I know we were
absolute jerks pretty typical children, yet I only retain the happiness I felt in new adventures and experiences shared with the people I love.
2. If you could write your obituary, what would it say?
How morbid am I that I’ve thought about this more than once and am under the age of 50? (In my defense, I seriously considered it after helping my aunt edit the one for my grandmother.)
I’m not going to write it out here, but let’s just say that it will contain a hidden message or two and at least a passing reference to HG2G -all written in verse.
3. Do you prefer turbulent waters or the stillness of the desert?
I definitely prefer the desert over deep water. -Don’t get me wrong; I love turbulent things. I just have a sort of terrible thalassaphobia.
4. What is your favorite flavor of ice-cream?
I have more of a favorite brand or type than flavor, because I’ve gotten to the point where I’m picky about the depth of creamy taste and luscious thickness of quality ingredients.
So, a darned good chocolate variety works for me.
5. Who do you most admire from history?
Distant history? Pretty much anyone who survived all the diseases and tooth decays and no hygiene; and still lived, reproduced (gah! tooth decay!), and made himself better in the world.
I admire those who had great difficulty; they are real people to me.
Thanks, Len! If the rest of you are still with me, here’s my nominees/people you should go check out:
Bladud Fleas: An extremely excellent writer, superbly talented artist, and …well, I don’t really know much else about him. Go visit, though.
Wilton Sugiyama of Wiltoons: He’s a dude I met through my motherhood site who draws cartoons about life.
Thru Violet’s Lentz: An excellent writer of many genres.
Ruth Scribbles: Another excellent writer who mostly dabbles in poetry.
Bereaved: My short name for A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent. Long name; hilarious and touching posts.
All y’all can answer these questions if you feel like it:
- How much chocolate is too much?
- Who would really win: Batman or Superman?
- Why is it always the last place you look?
- What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen European swallow?
- Where would you go to find The Meaning of Life?
