This time by the lovely , who is an amazing writer, artist, martial-artist, bodybuilder, cat-lover and all around incredible person.
I have to tell you ten things about myself and then answer ten questions she has selected for me. As you know I don't generally tag people back with this sort of exercise and I'm not breaking that trend. So here goes, ten things you might not know about moi:
Ten: I once owned a tarantula as a pet. His name was Spot and he lived in a large terrarium with logs and moss that had to be kept humid. A joker friend of mine placed a "dead hunter" figure from a horror movie line of action figures in there one day and the spider wrapped webs around it, making it extra creepy.
Nine: I have a love for sushi, especially king crab and octopus.
Eight: Adam Sandler has to be the least funny human being ever created in the history of time.
Seven: "Congo" is the only movie I have ever walked out of and demanded my money back less than halfway through. Just terrible.
Six: In the US I've been to Hollywood California, New Orleans, New York City, Salem Massachusetts, and all over Florida before finally settling in Virginia.
Five: Halloween is hands-down my favorite holiday. Christmas is a distant something down the path after a few others.
Four: Stephen King is my favorite author and I own every one of his books hard-cover and in the first edition.
Three: I collect celebrity autographs and have a set that includes the late Sir Christopher Lee, Lucy Lawless, Emilia Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Malcom McDowell, and most of the original cast of Star Trek and the Next Generation. My son has recently taken up this hobby as well!
Two: I'm 38 and the only person I know who still covers every inch of my wall-space with film posters, including all the Tarantino films and classic 70's horror.
One: I am sadly nothing like my namesake visually. I am short, with long hair and about 2 stone overweight ie. not that attractive I'm sad to say. I think her accent is much stronger than mine given my years in the US.
I don't know if anyone learned anything from that but those are the facts.
And here are the questions from
1: How are you feeling today?
I'm ok I guess, I'm not working so that means house-work...so I guess I am working? The cycle never ends!
2: Did you go into education or are you a self taught artist?
I'm a writer, completely self-taught with a lot of inspiration.
3. What is your favorite kind of music?
Classical oddly enough. After that I enjoy soundtracks and for vocals nothing beats the Rolling Stones.
4: What is your favorite food?
A big, fat juicy American burger.
5: What are your watchers like?
Most of them seem like really nice people, thoguh I only really have gotten to know a fraction of them. I've made some incredible friendships since coming to DA.
6: What other hobbies do you have?
I paint miniatures and occasionally table-top RPG. I read a lot...play WAY too many video games.
7: Who is your current Hero/Heroine?
Definitely my parents who risked so much for me to have a good life here.
8: Are you am indoor person or outdoor person?
Definitely indoor. My skin is pale and burns into flames under direct sunlight.
9: Who or What was your inspiration for art?
Too many to list, both in film and in literature. Certain characters, certain scenes that remain lodged in my memory.
10: What is your favorite movie/book?
Ridiculously tough question. I guess my favorite books may well be any of the works of H.G.Wells, Lovecraft, Poe, Conan-Doyle...gah! Too many to list here too! My favorite films include Tarantino's works, Spielberg, Stanley Kubrick...wow I could do a list on just these questions alone!
