—Two of my favorite funky fabulous bloggers, Charlene & Susan, asked me some questions at different
times. Thus, after pondering this dilemma, I thought, I KNOW, I shall answer their questions (short & sweet ) with a single blog post. Thanks, Dears.
1. What would you do if you won the Powerball Lotto?
Easy. I’d give a huge portion of it away. One thing I’d do is build a “SAFE HOUSE” for
women leaving abusive relationships. I’d
hire all of my girlfriends and pay them fabulous salaries so they’d never worry
about money again. The safe house would be overflowing with Dove & Cadbury chocolate. How lovely that
would be. Ooo, how lovely. I’d also give LOTS to Saint Judes, Children’s
hospitals, & Animal Allies.
2. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where
would it be?
Africa. It’s always been Africa. ( I want to meet my Pen Pal & Friend, Mercy Adhiambo. <3
3. If you could trade lives with anyone (from any
period of time), who would you trade with?
the First. She was brilliant, powerful,
and had sensational fashion sense.
4. Morning person or night owl?
Night owl. I never miss Nancy Grace. I dig sassy chicks.
5. Do you listen to music when you write?
I’m too busy listening to the voices and muses inside my own head. They never shut up!
What do you love most about your husband?
His integrity, beauty, kindness, empathy, & compassion.
7. What is it about your husband that drives you
logic. It causes him to not take more
chances in life. For example, even though we don’t have the money, I’d travel
to Africa or Paris
instantly! He says, NO!
8. What accomplishment are you most proud of?
My children. Period..
9. If your life were to become a movie, who would
you want to play you?
No hesitation. Angelina Jolie. I love her.
Not just her beauty, but her humanity.
10. Your desk – messy or neat?
Messy, but not
11. What are you reading right now?
I just finished
Precipice, Write on Edge because my essay, Apple Pie Therapy, is in it! You must download this fab book to your kindle
for only $2.99. The essays are superbly superb.
1.Why did you start blogging?
To tell Kay’s story, to bring her back to life, to
honor her beautiful soul. My blog has
become so much more…
MY BEST FRIEND & Soul Mate.
2. If you could be granted one wish, what would they be?
I want to talk to my sister, Kay, SO fucking BADLY. I have so many words and stories and
questions. I ‘d run up to her and never
let go. NEVER. I shall never let go. I want my family whole again.
3. When you don’t want to be bothered, where do you go to hide?
Inside my own mind. Inside a book. Inside an Indie movie. Inside God.
4. Sunny day or cloudy day?
Never ever cloudy. Always sunny, light, warmth, green, lilacs,
5. Exercise or TV?
Skip this one, please.
6.Greatest TV scene
7.Sex or sleep?
Sleep at night.
Sex in the morning. Perfect. ( don’t read this, Daddy )
8. If you could ask God only one question, what would it be?
Why did you leave me on earth without my sister
& soul-mate? I don’t understand that,
9. What is the best age of your life and why?
All ages before Kay.
None of the ages now. I know this
sounds sad, but it’s true.
10. If you had to eat only one type of food for the rest of
your life what would it be?
Warm Chocolate Chip Cookies w/ Ice Cold Milk. Yes.
This would be my last meal.
