Twitter-tag the first

Long, long ago, I got Twitter-tagged by my blogger friend Charlotte Jane Ivory. And here is my reaction to that event:

  1. If you could go back in time and relive one moment, what would it be?
    I've had heaps of great moments, but probably the one I'd love to relive is the first time I ever saw the Smashing Pumpkins live in concert. Or MAYBE it'd be the second time I saw them, which was a 3-hour performance in San Diego. MAGIC.

  2. If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?
    I'd probably go back in time and try to orchestrate a distinct lack of Joseph Stalin in the world.

  3. What movie/TV character do you most resemble in personality?
    Nobody, because I'm unique and nobody is like me? This is my lazy answer because I honestly can't think of any character off the top of my head. Or even off the bottom of it.

  4. If you could push one person off a cliff and get away with it, who would it be?
    If I could push one person off a cliff, it'd probably be Juturna from my novel NAUSICAA. Maaaaan that lady's a nasty piece of work. But it's okay, she gets her come-uppance.

  5. Name one habit you want to change in yourself.
    I want to be utterly confident in the idea that the world is my oyster, damn it. Basically I want to stop looking to other people for the kind of validation I am more than capable of giving myself.

  6. Describe yourself in one word.

  7. Describe the person who named you in this meme in one word.

  8. Why do you blog? Answer in one sentence.
    Because somebody said I I gave it a shot, and thought it pretty well rocked!

  9. Name at least 3 people to send this meme to, and then inform them.
    Ohhh, okay. I'll choose these people, after which I shall inform them:


  1. Suh-weet!! I now have a post for next wednesday, lol!!!

    Thanks ;-D

  2. I love your choice for habit--I think we all could give ourselves more credit most days!

  3. You are wonderful and funny! (Not that you need validation. Hehehe.)

  4. @Jolene - glad to help out. hehehe

    @Julie - you are so right, we could! It feels so much better to be waiting around for praise from others that we may or may not get...and instead to give it to ourselves!

    @E.R. - why thank you! and of course I don't need it... lol. It's nice though!

  5. Yes! Kick Madeline's butt into gear!

    (Madeline, if you read this, I love you. ^^)

  6. I like #5- it's probably the one we all need, aye? But it's the hardest one to break. Nice answers!

  7. @Brooke - yep, she needs a good push down the hill. or maybe up the hill. I don't know! hehe

    @Danette - definitely, we all need it! It's easier said than done, though, for we needy creatures!

  8. Hurrah - great answers by the way - looking forward to posting later - thanks for the tag!

  9. If I could go back in time, it would be to travel back to the seventies and kill the bastard that took the boy Adam Walsh from the Sears store (and later raped/beheaded him) and thus started the whole Code: Adam thing. I would just walk up behind him in the store, put a gun to his head, and execute him on the spot before he had a chance to snatch the boy.

  10. I can relate to #5
    And I love your reason for blogging ;)

  11. I agree with you on #2 . . .

    LOL. Sometimes I feel like pushing my characters off a cliff!

  12. @Laura - no worries, and glad you enjoyed. hehe

    @Michael - here, here! I'm not really a one for murder, but I definitely think people like that should be locked up in purgatory forever.

    @Lynda - yeah, just being honest about how I started. hehe. I think a lot of people could relate to #5 if they were honest!

    @Golden Eagle - I know! but the evil ones are so fun to write about. If you really hate them, you know you've done a good job of developing them. hehe

  13. What delightful questions! I've got a few characters i could push off a cliff too!


Thanks for your words, me hearties! and don't forget to leave a link to your blog somewhere I can find it!
