Day 5 of Book Bloggers Have the Best Answers :o)

Today I have the ever fabulous Patricia from Two Chicks on Books answering my questions. Her answers cracked me up and I hope you like them too :o)

http://twochicksonbooks1.blogspot.com/


1) You’re a kickass paranormal hunter. What would you like to hunt the most:

A) A vampire
B) A werewolf
C) A zombie
D) Your Mother-in-Law (hehehe)

ooh, my MiL is an option?! Yay, I mean...uh...I guess a zombie. Wait, I am still talking about my MiL, I guess I am!

2) Would you rather find true love or have the ability to save the world?

True love! Of course now I'm going to sound all cheesy but that we you can face the world together. LOL!


3) What grosses you out more:

A) Chopping off a zombies head.
B) Putting a stake in a vampire (gory like Lost Boys when they die).
C) Being kissed by a werewolf while he's a wolf.
D) Changing a babies diaper

I'm thinking that I would not be able to kiss a werewolf as a wolf. BLAH! It would just be like kissing my dog and ewww, NO THANK YOU! Plus talk about dog breath. *shudders just thinking about it*

4) What show are you more likely to watch:

A) The Xfactor
B) The Walking Dead
C) iCarly
D) Nightly News

Definitely The Walking Dead would be my choice but unfortunately at my house the kiddos take over the T.V. so I'm sure if you were to walk in it'd be tuned to iCarly *whispers* I kinda like that show, too ;)

5) Vampire movie/show you would love to spend a night in if it were real.

A) The Lost Boys
B) Trueblood
C) Twilight
D) Interview with a Vampire

True Blood, but only if I got *clears throat* Eric to myself.

6) Place you would love to visit so you could write a book about it?

Hmm, this is a toughie as I don't at all consider myself a writer but I would love to travel the world. I would start in Greece then perhaps go to London and off to Australia. Oooh, but maybe it would even cooler to visit a place in a book. I would love to go a Feary type world, scary yet exciting.


7) Your idea of a fun night:

A) Visiting a haunted house.
B) Seeing a foreign film.
C) Going skating with a bunch of kids.
D) Staying at home watching movies.

I'm actually a homebody so I would go for watching a good movie at home. :)

8) Spooky location you would love to spend a night at?

I am a total wimp so I don't think I want to, let alone love to spend the night at any spooky location. Although I make an exception in Tir Na Nog if Ash was there to protect me. ;P

Day 4 of Bloggers have the Best Answers :o)

Okay so I skipped a day in my Bloggers Rock Week, so I could wait in line for hours to see Breaking Dawn. Yes, the truth is out I'm a Twihard, and no as of yet, I will not be seeking help for my condition :o) Anyhooooooo, today I have the fantastic Andrea from The Bookish Babes answering my crazy questions ;)

1) You’re a kickass paranormal hunter. What would you like to hunt the most:

A) A vampire
B) A werewolf
C) A zombie
D) Your Mother-in-Law (hehehe)

10 years ago, I would have said mother-in-law, no hesitation. We’re cool now, so I’m going with zombies. No, can’t say zombies, they make me gag when I look at them and that limits my ability to slay them.  I’ll go with werewolf, they probably smell bad.


 2) Would you rather find true love or have the ability to save the world?

I’m a lover not a fighter, plus I’m sorta lazy. So I would rather have true love. We’ll cheer on the world-savers from our couch.


3) What grosses you out more:

A) Chopping off a zombies head.
B) Putting a stake in a vampire (gory like Lost Boys when they die).
C) Being kissed by a werewolf while he's a wolf.
D) Changing a babies diaper

I have been assaulted in every way possible by explosive diarrhea. Seriously, it was water hose style diarrhea, in the face, hair, eyes, mouth. And even that doesn’t gross me out as much as watching an episode of The Walking Dead.


4) What show are you more likely to watch:

A) The Xfactor
B) The Walking Dead
C) iCarly
D) Nightly News

That’s easy, The Walking Dead. Even though zombies majorly gross me out, I’m working my way through every episode. Plus I have the hots for Andrew Lincoln, aka Rick Grimes. I love a man w/authority. Btw, did you know he was in Love, Actually as Mark? I’ve been lusting after him for a long time now.


5) Vampire movie/show you would love to spend a night in if it were real.

A) The Lost Boys
B) Trueblood
C) Twilight
D) Interview with a Vampire

Twilight. I am an unashamed fan of the series/movies. I’d like to “hunt” with Edward, plus they’re pretty docile. I love True Blood, but it scares me. I’m still scared of The Lost Boys and Interview w/the Vampire did not impress me.


6) Place you would love to visit so you could write a book about it?

This is the tough one for me. I want to go to Ireland, Scotland, Italy, Greece. That’s about as much as I can narrow it down.


7) Your idea of a fun night:

A) Visiting a haunted house.
B) Seeing a foreign film.
C) Going skating with a bunch of kids.
D) Staying at home watching movies.

Um, none of the above. I do option D a, lot. Well, I guess I could handle Option B as long as it’s Spanish.


8) Spooky location you would love to spend a night at?

A haunted mansion, or castle. But I feel sorry for the person spending the night with me. I hate getting scared.

Okay that's what I came up with. I tried to tie them all together with a paranormal angle.

Day 3 of Book Bloggers Take Over My Blog :o)

Today I have the fabulous Rachel from the very cool blog fiktshun answering my crazy, wacky and of course zany questions ;)



1) You're a kickass paranormal hunter. What would you like to hunt the most:

A) A vampire
B) A werewolf
C) A zombie
D) Your Mother-in-Law (hehehe)
What a nightmare question! I honestly don’t know. If I were a total kick-a** paranormal hunter, I would definitely not want to hunt zombies, because no one ever makes it through a zombie attack. Every single movie I’ve watched, and the couple of books I’ve read, usually result in death for the main characters, so no. Not for me.
I couldn’t kill a vampire, unless they were the super-creepy peely faced ugly kinds of vamps. If they were smexy vamps, I’d have a problem driving a stake through their hearts or helping them meet the sun.
As far as werewolves, if they looked too much likes wolves and a little less the wolfman thing, I couldn’t do it. I love animals too much.
But I could probably kill demons (again not the smexy kind). Like Riley in Jana Oliver’s Demon Trappers, I could totally kill those kinds of demons. Bring on the Geo-Fiend.

2) Would you rather find true love or have the ability to save the world?

I am really starting to hate you and your questions now, Tiff! I’ve already found true love, so unless I was at risk of losing it, I’d have to save the world. But if I didn’t have my true love, I just don’t know. I’m not the most altruistic person, so I’d probably have to say I’d rather find true love. Yes, you’re turning me into an ogre here.

3) What grosses you out more:

A) Chopping off a zombies head.
B) Putting a stake in a vampire (gory like Lost Boys when they die).
C) Being kissed by a werewolf while he's a wolf.
D) Changing a babies diaper
Oh totally changing a baby’s diaper. Ugh, I may not be a mom, but that’s the most horrifying combination of visual and olfactory ickiness I can imagine. Bleh.

4) What show are you more likely to watch:

A) The Xfactor
B) The Walking Dead
C) iCarly
D) Nightly News
Well, obv. The Walking Dead. It’s the only one of the bunch I do watch. The news is way too grim. I got tired of wasting time watching too many reality TV shows, but I’ll take zombies any day. They make me smile.

5) Vampire movie/show you would love to spend a night in if it were real.

A) The Lost Boys
B) Trueblood
C) Twilight
D) Interview with a Vampire
Are you crazy? None of them. O.M. Gee. Have you seen the crazy stuff that goes down on True Blood? No thank you. As we are in the YA community I so will not go there.
The Lost Boys? Um, no thank you. Although Billy Wirth was kinda hot, as a vamp he was pretty skeev-tastic.
Sorry, but Tom Cruise was no Lestat, so I’d totally be nauseous if I were in that movie. Spit. Retch. Spit.
And Twilight? Um, no thank you. Sorry, not sure how Bella could kiss Edward after he gnawed her belly open. Regardless, all those vamps are taken, though Carlisle is a bit of eye candy. And the wolves imprint on children. No ma’am. Not for me.

6) Place you would love to visit so you could write a book about it?
In the real world? Ireland. I’ve always wanted to go to Ireland, though I don’t think I’d want to write about it, just experience it.
Fictional places? Ooh, that would be so much harder. I wouldn’t mind heading to wherever Adam and Warner are hanging out in Shatter Me, because, well... Adam and Warner are hanging out there. Of course, the book has been written and I don’t do fan fic.
I also wouldn’t mind visiting the Netherworld and spend a day hanging with Avari. (From Rachel Vincent’s Soul Screamers.) Again, the problem with the whole “book’s been written” but it’s Avari. He’s kinda awesome.

7) Your idea of a fun night:

A) Visiting a haunted house.
B) Seeing a foreign film.
C) Going skating with a bunch of kids.
D) Staying at home watching movies.
Wow, what an odd combo. Movie night isn’t fun, but it’s something to do. Unless by “movie night” you mean “watching” movies, but not. ;) ;)
As far as skating, are we talking little kids? Ice skating? Or hitting the skatepark and doing some tricks? That could be fun, but would probably mean a guaranteed concussion for me. I tend to be clumsy.
Foreign films are interesting, but could never be counted as fun.
Visiting a haunted house? Like Amityville Horror House? Or like Disney? I thinking hanging in a cemetery is fun. Unless we’re talking Forest Lawn in Queens - that’s supposed to be haunted. There are packs of roaming wild dogs that roam the cemetery and wild dogs aren’t fun.
8) Spooky location you would love to spend a night at?
Are you bringing back that mother-in-law question again? LOL.
I don’t have any spooky locations I’d like to sleep in. I’ve slept in a bunch of pretty odd places already. And no, you can’t ask.
Again, not so much a location, but I think it would be fun to sleep in a coffin for a night. Yeah, that’s sort of weird, right? But I love enclosed spaces.

Day 2 of Turning the Tables on Book Bloggers

Today I forced Mindy from Magical Urban Fantasy Reads to answer my zany questions.
I hope you like her answers as much as I did :o)

1) You’re a kickass paranormal hunter. What would you like to hunt the most:

A) A vampire
B) A werewolf
C) A zombie
D) Your Mother-in-Law (hehehe)

I’ll admit that at this very moment, my mother-in-law is a VERY tempting choice!  BUT, I’d have to say zombies would be fun to hunt!  Have you watched the show Death Valley?  I wish I could live there and help those cops kill zombies!  That show cracks me up.

2) Would you rather find true love or have the ability to save the world?

I’d TOTALLY want to save the world!  Yeah, yeah…I’ve already found true love, but true love comes with work, emotional drama and complications.  If I saved the world, I could actually say, “I’ve saved the world!”

But this TOTALLY contradicts my feelings every time I read a book.  In all the books I’ve ever read…including the most recent Iron Fey series, I’m ALWAYS rooting for the heroine to choose the guy over saving the whole world. LoL!  But, I’d choose saving the world over the guy!  If you ask me in a month, I just might change my opinion.

3) What grosses you out more:

A) Chopping off a zombies head.
B) Putting a stake in a vampire (gory like Lost Boys when they die).
C) Being kissed by a werewolf while he's a wolf.
D) Changing a babies diaper

I literally gagged when I thought about kissing a wolf…I can still taste the bile left in my mouth!  I don’t care if the thing is a werewolf and I’m in love with him/it!  He has to be human if he wants any kissing from me!!!  Chopping off a zombie’s head or staking a vamp would be pretty SWEET!  I did help a friend pack meat in their butcher shop when I was growing up…so I can handle blood and guts.  AND…I’ve changed more diapers than I can count.

4) What show are you more likely to watch:

A) The Xfactor
B) The Walking Dead
C) iCarly
D) Nightly News

iCarly BABY!!!  I have a feeling that if I started watching The Walking Dead it would be the show I would most likely watch, but I have stayed away from it because I DO NOT need another obligation in my life!  But I love me some iCarly!  I think I get more excited than my sons do when there’s a new episode!!!  And I sit excitedly on the couch wishing I had popcorn!

5) Vampire movie/show you would love to spend a night in if it were real.

A) The Lost Boys
B) Trueblood
C) Twilight
D) Interview with a Vampire

Hate to say it because I am REALLY getting sick of all these TwiHard fans, but I would have to choose Twilight.  I don’t have any superpowers to survive in any of those other movie/shows.  I’d TOTALLY pick Trueblood if Eric would protect me and keep Bill as far away from me as possible!

6) Place you would love to visit so you could write a book about it?


7) Your idea of a fun night:

A) Visiting a haunted house.
B) Seeing a foreign film.
C) Going skating with a bunch of kids.
D) Staying at home watching movies.

This one is totally easy…I’d pick staying at home watching movies.  Visiting a haunted house sounds pretty good too!

8) Spooky location you would love to spend a night at?

Spend the night in a spooky location?  Heck NO!  I watch those paranormal investigator shows and I prefer to stay away from anything TRULY paranormal!  I’m OK with watching it on TV or reading about it in a book!

What Book Bloggers Think :o)

This week, I decided to try something new on my blog, instead of doing author interviews, I decided to interview book bloggers.  I thought it would be cool to ask some of my favorite bloggers goofy paranormal questions to see how their answers differ from each others. I will be featuring a different book blogger each day from November 14th-November 21st. I hope you enjoy reading their different answers as much as I did.


First up this week is the amazing Jaime Arnold from the fabulous blog site Two Chicks on Books.



1) You’re a kickass paranormal hunter. What would you like to hunt the most:

A) A vampire
B) A werewolf
C) A zombie
D) Your Mother-in-Law (hehehe)

I’d have to say zombies. I love vampires I doubt I’d be able to kill one and werewolves are just too darned cool J and not married so no mother in law ;)

2) Would you rather find true love or have the ability to save the world?

Can’t I do both? There’s no reason I couldn’t find true love while saving the world? C’mon I’m thinking positively here ;)

3) What grosses you out more:

A) Chopping off a zombies head.
B) Putting a stake in a vampire (gory like Lost Boys when they die).
C) Being kissed by a werewolf while he's a wolf.
D) Changing a baby’s diaper

Ok you know me so this won’t be a surprise but it would definitely be changing a baby’s diaper. I do not like babies! My nephew will be a year next month and I’ve only picked him up once and that was because he was throwing a fit, he wanted my brother after he left the room.

4) What show are you more likely to watch:

A) The Xfactor
B) The Walking Dead
C) iCarly
D) Nightly News

Without a doubt The Walking Dead! News is too depressing and what’s iCarly isn’t that some kids show? I gave the XFactor a shot but it was horrid. Yep I needs me some blood and guts and zombies!

5) Vampire movie/show you would love to spend a night in if it were real.

A) The Lost Boys
B) True Blood
C) Twilight
D) Interview with a Vampire

K I’m going to pick them all and here’s why I love Santa Cruz and that’s where The Lost Boys was filmed (and your lovely books take place). True Blood ummm Erik, Jason, Alcide, and Hoyt need I say more? I’ve been to Forks and it’s quite lovely so I’d say Twilight for the town not the sparkly vampires. Interview would be because of the rock god Lestat I’d just want to curl up and drink in his voice and a little lovin from Armand would be awesome too :D

 6) Place you would love to visit so you could write a book about it?

 Scotland I love a highlander in a kilt and I love a Scottish accent .I’m a wee bit Scottish so I’d love to see the land of my ancestors and the loch’s. Or Egypt I’ve always been fascinated with the pyramids and hieroglyphics and their mythology.

7) Your idea of a fun night:

A) Visiting a haunted house.
B) Seeing a foreign film.
C) Going skating with a bunch of kids.
D) Staying at home watching movies.

Out of this? I’d say staying home and watching movies throw something in the blu-ray player (preferably something with hot boys) and a bowl of popcorn I’m good to go!

8) Spooky location you would love to spend a night at?

 There’s a road on the outskirts of Sacramento it’s called Dyer Lane that’s said to be haunted by a murder who killed people in a slaughterhouse back in the 20’s. I’d like to camp out there overnight and see if the haunting is true. Back when I was in my early 20’s we’d drive down that road late at night and see some trippy stuff granted we had been drinking so I don’t know if it was alcohol induced or not but, I’d like to go back completely sober and see if we were imaging things.
