Love your motto! emoticon

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

mmk LOVE your motto - appreciate someone else who has the half cup full mentality!

So why someone else's chicken soup?

BC rocks - come there and you HAVE to come thru Seattle and say hi to me!



I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

Let's get to know each other a little bit with some random facts. Copy / Paste and reply!



1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
I wasnít, but I was almost Guinevere.


2. WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO IN LIFE?
Iím still working on that, but my current theme is to do what I want and if it pushes the envelope and opens some eyes Iím even more thrilled.


3. IF YOU KNEW YOU COULD TRY ANYTHING AND NOT FAIL, WHAT DREAM WOULD YOU ATTEMPT?
Iíd do what Iím doing now. Writing. Iíd throw in a horse stable and a huge track of land just for fun.


4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH?
Lately itís been a mini buffet of little healthy things. A cheese stick, a half pita with two slices of turkey, a handful of carrots, grapes, pineapple chunks, a half cup of cottage cheese. I eat some or all of it and whatís left is an afternoon snack.


5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
No. Not going to have any either.


6. IF YOU COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD FOR A YEAR, WHERE WOULD IT BE?
Firenze (Florence)


7. WOULD YOU RATHER TAKE PICTURES OR BE IN PICTURES?
Neither. I prefer to watch without the camera. The Muse takes her own pictures.


8. HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR FREE TIME?
Writing M/M fiction, playing WoW, teaching myself Italian and French, reading anything from erotic romances to horror to classics like Alice in Wonderland and Frankenstein.


9. WOULD YOU DO ANY THRILL SEEKING/ADRENALINE ACTIVITIES LIKE BUNGEE JUMP/SKY DIVE/ETC?
Maybe. Yes, Iíd try them, but would I personally put forth the effort to set it up? No. If a bunch of friends were already planning it, Iíd happily be dragged along.


10. WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU WILL BE DOING FIVE YEARS FROM NOW?
More of the same, but hopefully with some writing credits under my belt.


11. WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES?
Writing. Reading. Bellydancing. Running (more like jogging, but Iím getting there). Stocks/finances.

Physically? Mentally? Emotionally? It comes and goes. I strive to be on all levels, but Iím certainly not perfect. ;)


13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
Edyís slow-churned (any flavor). Less fat so itís both better for my diet and gentler on my stomach.


14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Poise. How they carry themselves.


15. WHAT IS THE KINDEST THING ANYONE HAS DONE FOR YOU?
A girlfriend set me up with a friend to get me away from a bad relationship. Not only did she get me away from the bad situation, but I ended up marrying him.


16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
Iím too easily distracted by lethargy. I can waste time like no oneís business even when I realize Iím doing it, I donít always break out of it and do something productive.


17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
Tony E. A pagan-minded friend from Maine that got me through some tough times. I moved and he changed email addresses near the same time. Once I settled into the new place, I had no way to catch up with him and no forwarding address when I finally tried his last known mailing address.


18. WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH A MILLION DOLLARS?
Invest it. Cut back my office hours and use the free time to write.


19. WHAT CARTOON CHARACTER BEST DESCRIBES YOU?
Hahaha! Great question. McGoo. Meg from Family Guy. That human (Fry?) on the space show. Heh, I identify with the underdogs and the outcasts, not for who they are portrayed to be, but because I never wanted to be part of the popular crowd.


20. ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR NIGHT OWL?
I always thought myself to be a Night Owl, but since I work market hours, Iíve been slowly forcing myself to switch gears so getting to work isnít so painful.

The cat purring! Placebo is playing in the background (the best band youíve never heard of!)


22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
Iíd be one of those thick mish-mashed crayons that has a little of everything in it.


23. FAVORITE SMELLS?
Coffee brewing. Citrus body wash in the morning. Fresh bathed beagle. Damp woods after a spring rain. Red wine.


24. WHAT DO YOU DO? WHAT'S YOUR JOB?
Iím a CFP and a trader for a big name brokerage firm. I help people with the equity compensation plans provided by their employers.

25. ARE YOU A BEACH, COUNTRY, OR CITY PERSON?
Yes. I donít like to stay in one place (though I have). Sometimes I crave city (mostly when the Muse is seeking new characters) and sometimes I prefer the rest. Mountains, too.

26. FAVORITE SPORTS TO PARTICIPATE AND/OR WATCH?
Watch: Patriots football!! Go Pats!
Participate: I donít really. I wouldnít mind getting back into soccer though itís been twenty-plus years.

27. HAIR COLOR?
Currently? Lol. Black.

28. EYE COLOR?
Brown.

29. HOW DO YOU WANT TO BE REMEMBERED?
Fondly, by those closest to me. ďA little off kilterĒ by those that werenít close.

30. FAVORITE FOOD?
Wavy Lays potato chips.

31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?
Neither. Donít like horror on screen (just in books) and I fall asleep during chick flicks. Iím not a movie person.


32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
Half of the Andromeda Strain, last night on TV.

Autumn.


35. WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO VACATION?

39. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
Books. I never have less than three going at once.
NIGHTFALL by Andrew Wolter (homoerotic horror)

FAKING IT by Elisa Lorello (an experiment with chick lit)
ALICE IN WONDERLAND by Lewis Carroll (freebie classic on the Kindle)
HORNS by Joe Hill (horror)

Passion. I love my ďfor payĒ job. I love to write. I love my husband. Sure my life isnít perfect, but I seek little improvements towards that point.

43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
Yes.


44. WHERE DO YOU WANT TO RETIRE?
Italy.

Everyone does! I wanted to write horror. I discovered Iím much better at gay erotic romance. Iím running with it.


46. WHERE WERE YOU BORN?

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

amendment: I really don't care for either beatles or stones--for the era (decades before me), i would go for dead kennedys and bad religion.
and not "do you want to be remebered?" but "how"--i missed that part. I suppose as a progressive and inspirational person.
And cartoon character: invader zim--in my own sort of determined world but being made fun of and mocked by the superiors without my knowledge of it.
