Yes, it's "Show Me The Love!!" day, and here I am with my entry. I signed up for this one, even if I currently consider myself a bit of a "Love Grinch". I still have a soft spot for mushy crap, and I write the damn stuff, so yeah, here goes!
- What is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?
I would say the most romantic thing anyone's ever done for me is just say nice things to me, make me feel completely sexy and irresistible, and told me he'd been in love with me since he first saw me.
- What is your favourite love song?
Off the top of my head I can think of two: Unwritten Law's "How You Feel", and Type O Negative's "Pyretta Blaze". Both featured prominently on my Valentine's Day CD compilation I made for myself a few years back. A lot of Smashing Pumpkins songs tend to be romantic and "omg that is so my wedding song!" for instance, "In The Arms Of Sleep" - go look up the lyrics. It's a beautiful song too.
- Do you have a favourite romantic movie or book?
I really love Colin Firth. Need I say more? Well okay, I love some movies he's not in as well. I thought Valentine's Day was pretty decent. But favourites would be and Love, Actually and Bridget Jones's Diary. Oh, and the B.B.C.'s Pride & Prejudice, if it counts as a movie. ;) Books? I really loved Jane Eyre. But more modern-like, I'd go with Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. Jamie Fraser = o.m.g. I won't mention my own character from SUNDOWN et. al., because that's cheating. :D
- Do you have any romantic plans for Valentine's Day this year?
Yes, I'm going to spend it with myself, which is AWESOME because I love myself. Maybe this year I'll do something similar to what I did another year - write myself a love letter, make myself a CD compilation, buy myself dinner and wine, and simply enjoy my own company. I'm one of those lucky bastards who loves being in her own company.
- What's your favourite romantic treat? (candy, chocolate, edible body paint, etc...)
Dark chocolate and white wine. Together. In the same mouthful. Don't knock it till you've tried it, I'm saying.
Now, back to my Love Grinch ways. Except when I'm writing, anyway. Muahaha.
