Tag, you're It!

I don't normally do these things, but since Joyce blogs about once every 8 months (hee hee) and decided to tag me, I figured I'd give it a go.


What do you think of when you the hear the word tag?
Being tagged by my younger brother (and tagging him in return) with a clenched fist...

Do you think you're hot?
Not in any way, shape or form...but thankfully I've got enough money to make up for it...

Upload a picture or wallpaper that you're using at the moment.

I've been using this for well over a week...the cover to my new novel.


When was the last time you ate chicken?
Sunday night at the hospital, it was chicken-fried-chicken, which is the saddest bastardization of a decent food (chicken fried steak) ever conceived.

The song(s) you listened to recently.
Several, as I tend to listen while I'm writing or doing writing-related activities. Ones that I can recall off the top of my head: "Rolling in the Deep" by Adele, "Bodies" by Drowning Pool, "Numb" and "In the End" by Linkin Park, and "Hotel California" by the Eagles.

What were you thinking as you were doing this?
I wasn't...I find my blogs work a lot better if I don't do a lot of thinking...

Do you have nicknames? What are they?
None that could be uttered in mixed company (see previously mentioned brotherhood...).


Tag 8 blogger friends:
Carla
Candice
Angie
Karen
Diana
Lynn
Kimberly
Clifton

Who's listed as No. 1?
Carla, one of my great friends I've found recently through Twitter. We've grown very close, probably because we have most of the same behaviors... ;-)

Say something about No. 5

Diana is a fellow Champagne Books author, and a fantastic writer. Thank goodness she writes fantasy, so I don't have to directly compete with her. Haha.

How did you get to know No. 3?
Unless I'm mistaken (which gets more and more likely these days), I believe Angie and I met through Blogger and through the forums over at the former Ray Gun Revival. Even if I don't remember how we originally met, we've been hanging out on each other's blogs for some time, and even do a little critiquing for each other now and then.

How about No. 4?
Karen is a nut, and her blog proves it. Still, it's fun reading, even if I don't often know how to post a response to what she writes... ;-)

Leave a message for No. 6.
Lynn, it saddened me when your company stopped working with fiction...even if I understood the move.

Leave a lovey dovey message for No. 2.
(This could get awkward)
Candice, thanks for all the support and I hope you and your books eventually hit the big time as you (and they) deserve!

Do No. 7 and No. 8 have any similarities?
None as far as I know, aside from the fact both are writers of one type of another. One writes novels, and the other has an extremely entertaining webcomic.

Okay, there you have it...stay tuned for tomorrow's regularly scheduled goals post.
