Me! Me! Me!

Newest Hunger Games promo

What do you think about it?
Personally, it wasn't enough to whet my appetite. No offense to the studio making it but it kind of looked like some of the fake movie trailers that kids on YouTube have been making for a while.


My friend Michelle over at Greenwoman 
tagged me 'oh so long ago' 
This may or may not be a picture of Michelle
and although I am slow
So here are the answers to the meme quiz:

Bring it on!
Show us the cutest, most adorable picture of your favorite animal:

Ummm, I'm not sure that Elephant Seals take adorable pictures. In fact I'm not sure how they would operate a camera with those flippers *rim shot*
You have five seconds to survive the zombie apocalypse. Choose one friend who would save your butt and then tell us why you chose them.
Zombie Apocalypse, huh? Can I choose the leader of the zombies? Make him fall madly in love with me. Maybe even kiss his decaying lips. Then we can pretend to be Romeo and Juliet with my people killing his people and his people killing my people. Then we will both take our own lives. *Sigh* Is somebody taking notes here? I think this might be a best seller. (Did you expect a serious answer to this question?)
Share a quote with us:
"The life which is unexamined is not worth living."
-Plato, quoting Socrates, 
Apology, 38

This is one of the main reasons that I write.

Using exactly twenty seven words, tell your life story:
Born in Oregon. Raised in California. Loves things I'll never see again. Loves things that never existed then. San Franciscan by heart, Utahn by necessity. Loves you!
All dead rock legends live again. You’re standing in a fifty mile long line for:
I'm not that big into concerts. 
So can I say, I'd stand in a fifty mile long line to hug my grandpa who's past away. That would make me way more happy than any rock legend.
Describe yourself using six words that start with the third letter of your middle name. Go!:
Charismatic, Chocohalic, Crazy, Christian, Chronically Cold, Caring
What do you think of when you hear the word wombat?
furry pouched marsupial
I also can't help but see the word 'womb' in there.

I am ACTUALLY going to tag a few people on this *collective gasp*
but they are free to write their own 5 weird questions (or make me write them)

Missi Morris at Whimsical Writing- I love the way that Missi writes. There is a warmth and a humor to everything she creates (you should see her bake!) She's only a few blog posts into her blog and I just have a weak spot for upstarts (because I am a seasoned veteran ;)

Randy Lindsay at Randy Lindsay-Author in Training- A friend thru & thru in this platform building stuff. I know this guy is capable of writing his own questions because his interviews crack me up!

Casey at Obscure and Askew- Casey is really funny! I'm not sure I have give you more reasons. I'm a sucker for a good laugh.

If you guys haven't popped over to these blogs before DO! This writing community is so fantabulously supportive!!


  1. I can't believe you know the entire plot of my zombie WIP! Have you been hacking my email? Seriously great answers :)

  2. Utahn by necessity! Me too.

    You crack me up.

  3. I popped over to check out two of them as I'm already following one. Thanks for those links. I love your answers to these questions- specially the 5th one.

  4. I won't lie... anything with the Hunger Games gets me excited, but YES... I do wish they would have shown more. O-well.

    Love your answers. I'm glad you're a Utahn, even if by necessity! It all works out in the end. :)

  5. I'm following all those three already. Great minds think alike!

    And I've seen the Hunger Games link on three sites now and I can't watch any of them. Hey, publicity people, English people are interested too!

  6. Elephant seals are neat, even if they are... interesting-looking!

    Also? Your zombie story would totes be a best seller!!

  7. You are hilarious! Seriously. Love the elephant seal picture. ;)

    P.S. Feeling like a lunch play date anytime soon?

  8. wombat always makes me think of Star Wars. I think Luke said something about wombats and his sand cruiser. But I'm a geek that way. :D

    Elephant seals are cool.

  9. One, I love the picture and Two, the zombie thing you just described was more or less "Warm Bodies" by Issac Marion.

  10. I don't know, I think that pic is kind of adorable. The beady eyes...the rough skin...the floppy nosey thingy....


  11. I don't know about adorable, but the seal made me laugh.

  12. I love your zombie love story. Hahaha.

    Also, totally agree about the HG footage. That was a teasery teaser that showed me nothing. Katniss, woods, fire. Got it. Feel like I've already seen all of that in the pictures that are already out. :P

  13. awww ... *blush* Thanks for the shout out Shelly! Backflip aside, you really are a great cheerleader!

  14. hahaha...funny zombie romeo and juliet idea.

  15. Congrats on the award. I love that quote.

    As for the video, I loved the first two books and loathed the last one. The way the camera was all jerky made me think of the Twilight movie (which was ghastly). I sure hope they do better with Hunger Games than what is on that video.

  16. Haha! Loved your answers!

    Btw, the Hunger Games preview was waaaay too short. :(

    Anyway, I didn't know you're here in Utah. Small world. ;)
