Misty’s Questions:

Q: If you had to choose, would you rather be a vampire or a werewolf? (Yes I am stealing this question from Irena because I am curious about what others would choose.)

A: Oh, that’s easy! Vampire of course!

Q: What is your favorite kind of bookish merch?

A: I love bookmarks and bags mostly!

Q: If you could only be active on one social media site which would you choose?

A: Hands down -Goodreads!

Q: Do you have any pets? If so I would love to see some pictures of them.

A: I do have many pets. Here are some pictures…

Q: What is your least favorite book of 2017 so far?

A: I’m beating the dead horse with this one, but The Happiest Mommy You Know.

Q: Who is your all time favorite author?

A: Totally unfair! I can’t pick just one. One of them is Jodi Picoult.

Q: Do you have any auto buy authors besides your favorite author?

A: Hmm, I mainly go with favorite authors unless it’s a series I’m reading. If it’s someone that I know that’s written another book, I’ll buy it.

Q: What is your biggest bookish pet peeve?

A: Book abuse. I can’t stand to see new books mistreated. I can deal with vintage books that have wear from the shelf and torn dust jackets because it’s to be expected, but not caring for new books is a big one.

Q: How many books are on your physical TBR pile?

A: You really don’t want to know. On Goodreads, I’m pushing 10,000. At home, with what I have on my shelves, it’s probably 200 or so…

Q: What is your all time favorite movie?

A: It’s so hard to choose just one. I’ll go with Gladiator. I love everything about that movie and the soundtrack is beautiful. Russell Crowe, Richard Harris, Joaquin Phoenix, Connie Neilsen, and Djimon Hounsou are all favorites. Here’s a summary of the movie that does have spoilers and it’s also fairly gory. I’ve never grown tired of this song with Lisa Gerrard. Every time I hear her voice, I’m captivated. You can hear the entire song during this recap of the movie.

Q: Villains or Heros? (Yes I kind of took this from Irena as well sorry she made me curious.)

A: I feel like you really have to like both, right? I always love a good hero though.

-My Q&A-

Which of the 7 deadly sins could you absolutely live with if you had to?

Hmm, this one is a hard question! I have to go with Gluttony which is an excessive ongoing consumption of food or drink. I ❤ Food and I could live with this if I had to.

Which of the 7 dwarfs are you most similar to? 

This is hard because I think I have traits similar to each one. I’m going to say I’m most like Doc. Doc has a personality in which he feels he needs to have everything in order and is protective. He is also a person of rational thinking and at times he flusters under stress. I think this describes me pretty well.

What state haven’t you lived in but would like to? 

Maine! I’ve always wanted to live in Maine, or just north in general. I can’t stand the heat and this summer is already killing me. The thought of living in Maine on the coast is like a dream.

Where do you see yourself in ten years that you believe you might actually achieve?

I’m planning on having a book written by then. I’m working on a book regarding healing foods and recovering from disease by using non-conventional methods. Many conventional treatments don’t solve the root problems and only cover symptoms. I don’t really consider myself a writer and this is a huge challenge for me. It may take me the full 10 years to write it, but I want to do it. I hope that it will help others dealing with disease. If it helped one person, it would be worth it to me.

Where do you see yourself in ten years that you hope happens, but don’t think it will?

I hope to be a little more stress free. By this time, I should have less stress, but I’m unsure of the future.

Who do you not know in person, but think you’d be best friends with?

Jim Gaffigan. He makes me laugh SO hard and most of what he says resonates with me. I would love hanging out with him too! He seems like a person who could really bring you out of the dumps.

What Greek or Roman goddess or god is your favorite?

Having to pick one, I would go with Cybele – The Greek goddess of caverns, mountains, nature and wild animals. She was also known as Mountain Mother, a mother over all wild nature. I love that.

When in time would you want to live that you have not been alive for?

I would have loved to live during the Renaissance times. I’ve always been fascinated with this time period and I actually used to make Renaissance costumes. I love the music, art and the fashion. I often think about living back in time when we didn’t have so much technology and wonder what it would be like. Less stress, more stress, who knows. 🙂

If you could only travel by 1 mode of transportation in the future, what would it be?

I get motion sickness very bad, like to the vomiting point. Of course it mostly comes on with car riding and boating. I’m not a flyer either, so I think I’d be happy to just ride my mountain bike everywhere. It would be a good way to stay in shape.

What website do you visit the most?

http://www.goodreads.com

How many cookies is too many cookies in one single sitting?

Hmm, that depends on the size! If they’re Girl Scout Thin Mints, I could easily polish off a box. Keebler Softbatch, an entire package. Anymore than that and I think I’d get sick.
