20 questions

Stolen from the uber-fabulous Pratt and preventing me from writing more “adult content” in my NaNoWriMo project. (Plot? What plot? Isn’t rising action enough?) πŸ˜‰

1. What’s for breakfast? Coffee and vanilla-cinnamon oatmeal. Exciting.

2. Do you read a newspaper daily? Via the glory of the newsreader, about 10 of them. I was devastated to read that Peter Drucker died Friday. And that Paris Hilton and that goon Talan from “Laguna Beach” were in a car wreck. πŸ˜‰

3. What do you do when you can’t sleep? Whip up a Benadryl/Tylenol PM cocktail and have fun with household objects in the meantime.

4. Say a word that sums up your mood. Blase.

5. Do you remember your dreams? Usually. Because they’re often foreshadowing or, at least, symbolic. And vivid.

6. Name something from your dream last night? I was standing next to someone, reading a sign, and I’d turned to the person and said, “That’s wrong. They need to fix that.” Seriously, no clue WTF that’s about, unless my Inner Editor is on guard even when I’m in REM sleep.

7. Name a food that describes you. Chinese food. You don’t know what the hell’s in it, but it’s a little bit spicy and a little bit sweet. And in a couple of hours, you want more. πŸ˜‰

8. Today you are wearing… Black low-cut shirt and a denim skirt of a should-be-illegal length.

9. What’s in your pockets? Nothing.

10. Did you sing in the shower today? What did you sing? My voice is still pretty weak, after putting on a production at work and pretending I was feeling better than I was all day yesterday. So, neighbors, forgive me for my rendition of Madonna’s “Hung Up.” I’m sorry. Really.

11.What’s the last song you heard? Liz Phair, “Everything (Between Us)”

12. Looking forward to the holidays? I’m looking forward to taking some time away from work, but not so much for the holidays and certainly not for all the driving I’ll be doing.

13. Where do you want to be this instant. You don’t want to know. πŸ˜‰ But I’d be enjoying it!

14. What’s for lunch? A handful of cappuccino truffles. OK, more than a handful. Yum.

15. What’s something you would like to do soon? Recover from this damned bird flu or whatever it is that I have. My lower back feels like someone is stepping on it.

16. Reading anything now? What is it? The print version of The Examiner.

17. What’s for dinner? I’m broke. It’s 9:15 p.m. and looking like potato chips. I think I’ve got a popcorn ball or two around here somewhere. And tea. And still more hot fucking tea for my throat. Hooray. Give me a fucking beer when all this is over!

18. Favorite part of the day is… Around 11 p.m., when I’m watching late-night TV and getting prepared to pass out for a few hours. That’s when I’ve been tackling my novel-writing because that’s when all the ideas seem to hit.

19. Are you happy? I echo Pratt on this one: I wish I were more.

20. Will your friends do this meme? Probably not and I’m not one of those nitwits who taps people to do them. I’m just a plain old nitwit. πŸ˜‰
