Hot Fudge Brownies, Sparkles and Answers

We need to talk.

Don't leave... I have something to say, it's probably going to upset you, but, well you see, I don't have brownies. And if I'm going to be truthful, I've run out of sparkles.

WAIT!! I know, I know, I shouldn't lie, but how else am I supposed to get you people to visit my blog. Instead I'll be answering YOUR questions over the next two days! You know you love it!!!

By Golly Miss Molly you asked a ton! Which I love! Shows you a little more randmoness (from yours truly!).

First things First - A little blog love!

Serena is NEW to the blogging world!! She is fantastic! She just switched up her blog and I think as bloggers we should all hop over and say hello! We need to show her what an awesome writing support system (and just regular support system) we have on these blogs! So GO NOW (or after I answer questions!)

MY GIVEAWAYS - I currently have a $60 giftcard for CSN stores up for grabs! I'll choose the winner tomorrow so make sure you get your name in!!!

I have two upcoming contests as well one for Sophie Jordan's Firelight & one for Rose Cooper's Gossip from the Girl's Room! Be on the look out for all this awesomeness in the next few weeks!!

So tons to come next week, but for the next two days it's all about MOI! I'm answering those super fun questions you all asked me!!! Thanks Vicki for the fabulous idea!

Okay... SO on WITH the QUESTIONS!!!!

The Alliterative Allomorph asked:

Q: When you're eating a salad at a restaurant, and a fancy lettuce stalk accidentally goes up your nose while attempting to insert it into your mouth, what do you do? Try to hide it, or joke about it?

A: Well Jess, that’s the trouble with lettuce, the fancier the more embarrassing. I would joke about it, I’m a jokester and it’s easier to live with the story than to pretend it never happened.


Jen Brubacher asked:

Q: Okay, here's a question, since I don't know you well at all: What's your favourite book? (No cheating! Your favourite book *ever.*)

A: Wow! Favorite book, Jen you are really putting me on the spot. I refuse to answer my favorite book, but I will choose my favorite novel that made me want to become a writer, and that would be Match Me If You Can by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, I thought I’d rule the chick lit world… turns out romance is something I need work on.

Vicki Rocho asked:

Q: I used to have a recurring dream as a kid (still have it as an adult sometimes) that aliens have landed and are looking for me. It's dark, the mother ship is just down the street, and they are closing in. WHAT do you do?

(Might I suggest you not hide in the closet? They ALWAYS look there...)

A: Vicki never lets me down... she's amazing!!! What a nutty dream to have, but I'm not allowed to talk since I have quite a few of those myself. Okay so what would I do if the aliens were closing in?

Easy - I'd grab Frankie, my trusty sidekick (who I just made up for this exercise) and we'd grab our uber cool limited edition flashlight/radio/alien signaler/catcher were we could scope out the aliens and zap them out of sight. All of this would be done under our trusty invisibility cloak, after all this was happening inside Hogwarts gates so apparation isn't allowed.


Misha asked:

Q: Have you ever thought you'd sell your soul for a piece of chocolate?

If yes... what kind and what kind of volumes are we talking about?

A: Sorry Misha, this one was way to easy. I’m one of those woman who really doesn’t like a whole lot of chocolate so I would never have to sell my soul for it. However if you were to ask it about Gummy Bears my answer might have been different Muahahaha!!


Bish Denham asked:

Q: If you could be a flower what flower would you be?
What does your brain sound like when you're writing?

A: Easy Peasy I’d be a lady slipper, because it has a super fun name and looks like a slipper, what’s not to like… oh and I want it to be pink.

Oh and my brain makes a beautiful sound while writing, it replays Bird of the Summer by A Fine Frenzy, over and over... utter bliss.


Christine Danek asked:

Q: You are suddenly sucked into another dimension, what is the one thing you want to have sucked with you? (does that make sense?) What would you want with you from this dimension?

A: This one is super tough… I would take my wand, since I’m as awesome at spells, just like Hermione Granger, I can get anything I want by a simple charm spell “accio husband, accio cats, accio ice cream!”

NOTE: My husband would like to bring a personal chef. LOL I had to add it, it was cute he even offered up an answer.

I'VE STOPPED! This post is already MEGA LONG, so I'll save the rest my lovelies, for tomorrow!!!

Rose Cooper said...

That beautiful sound your brain makes while you write--that's in your book! I just finished reading that! Ha!

E. Elle said...

ZOMG! I'm an "Accio" freak! When I got my Harry Potter-themed auto tag, I almost got it to say "Accio" but I went with "Mischief Managed." It's still super awesome. But I pretty much "accio" everything... including my chapstick which always seems to be just out of reach.

Can't wait to read the rest of your answers!

T.J. Carson said...

Hahaha these were hilarious! And I agree with you on the chocolate one haha. Wow the salad thing was my favorite, I don't think people know how often that happens ahha!!!

My summer was amazing by the way!! Thanks for asking. I did a post on its amazingness which you commented on so that was pretty much the gist of it! HOW ABOUT YOU!!!!???? Not seeing wonderful blogs such as yours over the summer def made me sad at times!!!!
