Sayer's questions

Yesterday, I posted 11 random facts about myself after Sayer awarded me the Liebster Blog Award. Today, I'll answer Sayer's questions.

1. What is your favorite color? /obligatory Monty Python

Lavender gray  (or maybe MSU green)

2. What is the worst movie you've ever seen? Was it so bad it was good, or was it just regular old terrible?

Can't remember the title, but it was a stripper movie. Even the NC-17 nudity couldn't make up for the terrible acting. I walked out halfway through, deciding that it was a waste of my time.

3. What was the best movie you've ever seen?

"Singing In The Rain", about as flawlessly perfect as a movie can be. Endlessly re-watchable.

4. What inspired you to create? (start writing etc)

I have too many thoughts and ideas buzzing in my head to keep them all contained there.

5. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? (Vanilla absolutely counts)

Banana chocolate chip vanilla frozen custard, from Ted Drewes, 6726 Chippewa Street, St. Louis, MO 63109

6. Who is your favorite writer?

P.G. Wodehouse

7. What is the last book you read?

I'm in the middle of several right now, including: "White Pickups" by Larry Kollar; "Gravity's Rainbow" by Thomas Pynchon; "Make the Bread, Buy the Butter" by Jennifer Reese.

8. Have you read any of my stuff? (yes, I know, I know)

Yes, I read your flash fiction.

9. How do you feel about books being turned into movies? Always a bad idea? Sometimes?

A great book can be a great movie ("The Godfather"). A mediocre book can give rise to a great movie ("Jaws"). A great book can make a lousy movie ("Pride and Prejudice"). The process of adaptation means turning one kind of art into another kind of art - always risky.

10. Is there any "everyone who has taste likes this" stuff that you just can't seem to get into? (It's LOTR for me)
Seinfeld. Utterly unfunny, and I think less of people who like it.

11. If I have 10 ice cubes and you have 11 apples, how many pancakes will fit on the roof?
What kind of roof? African or European?

===== Feel free to comment on this or any other post.


  1. But Seinfeld's hilarious! And now you think less of me. :(

    But seriously, I love reading stuff like this. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I'm glad to know I'm not the only person who doesn't care for Seinfeld. There's no one there to LIKE! (I'm funny that way...)
