I decided to write-up some questions for someone very important to me, my best friend, and someone I love a great deal. She’s an upcoming author, hard at work on her first novel. I figure it will be fun to get to know her now. Fair warning: She has some snarky tendencies.
R.w.Foster: What’s your astrological sign?
Miss Jen: Pisces
R.w.F.:What would you say is the greatest act of kindness you’ve received?
R.w.F: What is one legal activity that someone could not pay you enough to do?
MJ: Jury duty.
R.w.F: Barring the birth of your kids, what’s been the happiest moment of your life to date?
MJ: Seeing podlings for the first time.
(Note: Podlings is what our small group of friends is called, due to us being like “3 peas in a pod”.)
R.w.F: Where do you see yourself 5 years from now, professionally?
MJ: I would love to be a published author.
R.w.F: What about personally?
MJ: what about it?
R.w.F: What is your favorite food?
MJ: Candy and pizza. NY style, though. That deep dish version sucks.
R.w.F: What is your favorite flower?
MJ: Any kind of wild flower.
R.w.F: If you could go anywhere in the world, money being no object, where would you go?
R.w.F: Why there?
MJ: It’s where unicorns live! Duh.
R.w.F: If you do do anything in the world, money being no object, what would you do?
MJ: Do do? Um, I would write from sun-up to sun-down. Of course with breaks for running and my babies.
(More snark! I didn’t realize I double typed “do”. Naturally, she has to tease me with it. I left it in for fun.)
R.w.F: What is your dream car?
MJ: One that’s good on gas.
R.w.F: What would you say is your greatest phobia (fear)?
MJ: Hurting people.
She also doesn’t like the idea of zombie clowns)
R.w.F: If you could have dinner with any author, living, or dead, who would you choose?
MJ: You, Fab, and Laurell K Hamliton. and Steven King and Clive Barker and James Brown and Connie Suttle and…. There are so many.
R.w.F: Why them?
MJ: Because they rock.
R.w.F: What is your number one favorite song? You have to choose one.
MJ: Hummm… Not gonna happen, but I got this one on loop right now: A Historic Love, from the Tudors OST.
R.w.F: What is your biggest regret?
MJ: Wow, you’re pulling out the big guns now. I’d have to say, “Not speaking with my heart and mind.”
R.w.F: Who is your favorite superhero?
MJ: I do not have one: Men in tights out of the 1800’s are a no-go for me.
R.w.F: How would you describe your ideal first date?
Miss Jen: A carefree, come-what-may one. I like it when there are no set plans.
R.w.F: What is your favorite color to wear?
MJ: Dark blue.
R.w.F: Hollywood is making the Miss Jen biopic. Who plays you, and who is the director?
MJ: LMAO. Ummm, some hot little thing. And the director of Underworld.
(Note: Len Wiseman)
R.w.F: What is the number one thing on your bucket list?
MJ: Having my book published.
R.w.F: For some reason, your loved ones have asked you to plan out your funeral. Please describe it.
MJ: There would be none. No one needs to see my dead ass. I want a party: Music, dancing and happy people. No flowers, or sad music. I want them to be happy for I am now in my next life.
R.w.f: What is your secret fantasy? The one you’ve not told anyone about. The one you pull out to comfort you when you are feeling your worst?
MJ: I wake up and I am 21 again, but in a different world. No one knows me and I have a pet dragon named Spot.
R.w.F: You have a willing partner, and all night. What do you do with him?
MJ: Talk and play cards…. Really.
