I feel as though lately, I've only been posting book reviews....and for some of my older readers at least, who are used to a lot more variety, this could be a bit boring. So, I thought I would toss out an idea: is there ever something you wanted to know about me? You can ask :) However, there is one stipulation....as you all know, I'm a bit of a private person when it comes to things such as my location, etc. So, please don't ask for things like that, since I won't answer. But, things like my interests, etc. are open for your questions. The quirkier the better :) Make these like crazy icebreaker questions if you want! I look forward to hearing from you ;)


  1. Sarah,

    Normally, I would say ninjas...However, I just saw the Pirates of the Carribean, and I'm on a sight pirate high.....so, if you asked me at any other time, I would say ninjas (but right now, it's pirates).

    Short Answer: Ninjas

  2. Do you always wear hats then? What's the craziest one you own?

    (I have a few hats, but I can't stand wearing them for more than a couple hours. My head needs to be FREEEE!)

  3. I like the books. I'm finally getting around to reading C.S. Lewis. He paints pictures in my mind.
    These last few years I have read a few books written for young people, preteen and teens. There is quite a bit of good stuff. Those that I have really enjoyed have lessons about how we should act as opposed to adult books which seem to be about how we do act.
    Your book reviews are excellent and I read everyone. I just sometimes don't have anything to say. I'll try to let you know you are read without blathering on about something I know nothing about.

  4. Chess,

    Sadly, I do not always wear hats. I've only just started amassing a hat collection, so right now, all I have is the one fedora. However, I saw a beautiful straw fedora at the store, and I've saving up my meager funds (still not employed) to buy it. I guess you could say the craziest hat I own is my fedora....the craziest hat I HOPE to own?

    Right here:




  5. Old Fool,

    Thank you for your kind words; it means a lot to me. I always enjoy your commentary on my blog; your insights are very thoughtful and beautifully worded. It is always a pleasure :)

  6. asl?

    kidding :).

    Tell me:
    -A band you're excited about.
    -A movie you can't get enough of.
    -3 items you'd keep with you to survive the zombie apocalypse.


  7. Evan,

    Oooh! Good questions :)

    -I like classic bands like Queen and Alice Cooper, but for more contemporary bands, I would say All American Rejects, Neon Trees, and Mika.

    -There are several movies I can't get enough of, but if I were to keep the list short, I would either say Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, or Without a Clue (a Sherlock Holmes spoof)...Oh! And the Princess Bride :)

    -If/When the Zombie Apocalypse comes, I'd be sure to arm myself with a rapier (because I took fencing and hopefully would still be decent with a sword), an AK-47 (because a guy friend told me that he could totally see me with a machine gun, and it made him laugh), and my fedora so that I would look really kick-ass when I was kicking zombie butt ;)
