Eleven Random Questions

I’ve been absent for a while, but a nice opportunity arose today to jump back to my blog. Lauralynn Elliott tagged me in a little game of eleven questions. I’m going to participate in the first part, answering the questions she posed on her blog, but I’m not going to pass it along. Her questions, and my answers, appear below. Thanks, Lauralynn!

Who is your favorite author?
One favorite? Huh. Today I will say Jacqueline Carey. If you’ve never read one of her books, check out Kushiel’s Dart today. It is an amazing story of intrigue in a sumptuously sensual setting.
What’s your favorite color?
Purple. I believe my blog can attest to that. 🙂
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
In my beautiful home state of Oregon, but probably not in its biggest city, where I live now. I think I’d live on the coast side of the coastal range, but not quite at the beach . Somewhere I could have goats, maybe a horse if I had more time on my hands, and the kids could do 4H projects.
How old were you when you had your first real kiss?
Fourteen.
Who is your hero?
My mom.
Who is the sexiest person on TV right now?
Eric Dane. Just check out Dr. McSteamy. 

Who is your favorite vampire?
Yay! Love this question! Spike, for sure! I have a signed picture of James Marsters as Spike in my office. I just stopped to stare at him for a moment. Sigh. (Lauralynn, you’re making me think about nothing but hot guys!)

What’s your favorite beverage?
Water. That sounds really boring, but it’s pretty important.

What’s your favorite food?
Chicken and dumplings. Especially my mom’s.
What would be your ideal job?
Close to what I’m doing now, which is economic research, but probably less of it, at least while I have small children. I do love having a challenging day job, with new things to work on and think about all the time. Of course, I’d rather write than do anything else, but I’m lucky in that I have opportunities to use my writing and editing skills at work. 
What do people do that annoys you the most?
Drive in the middle lane of the street after taking a left-hand turn. It is NOT for driving, people. You’re going to kill someone! (Don’t get me started.)

  1. Thanks for playing, J.R. Sorry I made you think about hot guys. Ok, I’m not really sorry. LOL. Spike is probably number two on my favorite vampire list. Mick St. John from Moonlight is my favorite. 🙂
