Me: Wow, that is a lot, but I'm glad you stuck with writing!
Q2. If you could live/go anywhere, where would it be and what would you do there?
Well, minus the bloodthirsty predators, I rather think the deserted island in question 5 could be a fun place to spend a day... Do you think we could have a luau?
Me:Uhhh....I'll have to think on that one, but I don't think GWTW and a luau mix. But, we could make it work.LOL;)
Q3. If you were planning your “dream” party, what would it be like?
I'd rent a Tuscan villa for the weekend (because money is no object, and this party can go all weekend, can't it?) and have all the characters I've ever created magically appear so I could watch them live and in person. I'd sit on a couch and listen to them air their grievances with how I've written their story, and at the end of the weekend, we'd all huddle around the karaoke machine and sing "We Are Family." And did I mention there would be cake? Lots and lots of cake.
ME: Sounds like my kind of party. I've always wanted to go to Italy, so you bet I'd try to tag along. Hmm...I'd definitely love to hear what your characters have to say. I'm sure they'll not be short on words. And did you say cake? You can't have a party without cake, if you did, it would be two shakes away from a PTA meeting.
Q4. If you were hosting a party, what favorite (living or deceased) author(s) would you love to invite?Definitely Jane Austen and Oscar Wilde just to watch them verbally spar. I think those two are the most witty writers to ever enter the field of literature. I'd just hand them each a cupcake and watch them go at it - sort of like WWE for writers.
ME:Would they be throwing these cupcakes at each other? Cause, THAT, I've gotta see.
Q5. You're stuck on a deserted island with one other person and a box of party supplies filled with a helium tank, balloons, noise makers, Care Bear themed paper goods and a giant inflatable bounce house; who would you want to be stuck with and what party supplies do you think would be the most useful? Oh, the helium tank is definitely going to be the most useful. What a perfect icebreaker to suck helium and talk in squeaky voices. I'd probably never even get around to inflating the bounce house, and then we'd get eaten by wild animals because I never bothered to put together the shelter… (That is, if you can consider a giant inflatable bounce house a "shelter.") But then we could use the noise makers to scare away the carnivores at night! Why hasn't anyone ever thought of a party-themed desert island experience before this, I ask?!?
I'd probably choose my brother to join me because…
1) I would pay serious cash to hear him talk in a helium-high voice. And on the island, he'd do it for free, out of sheer boredom, most likely!
2) He hunts AND he works for a restaurant so I'm guessing he could both kill and cook the food. Which is so important when you're a castaway, don't you agree?I'm not sure what I'd do with the Care Bear themed items, but I do know they would really brighten up the surroundings...
Me: Your brother hunts and cooks? Hunting is pretty big down here. Even if you go to Papa John's and you just happen to have your rifle with you, it's still considered hunting.LOL The cooking part would be great too, since I'm not a fan of steak tar tar. And Helium would be quite entertaining and would probably stop you from trying to make friends with a Care Bear plate and naming it Wilson, right?
Last, but never least...
