I have been tagged by the lovely Raquel Byrnes! I am now doomed to answer each of these five questions five times. So, I guess I should get to it...
Question 1 - Where were you five years ago?
  1. In North Dakota
  2. Dating my husband
  3. Getting really into Classical Studies
  4. Not writing enough, even though I was taking creative writing courses
  5. Student Managing at the Student Union where I worked. I was a good manager, too!
Question 2 - Where would you like to be in five years?
  1. Published.
  2. Living in Upstate New York
  3. Still Writing, only, you know, not for free.
  4. OR! Possibly in Denmark going to school for Old Norse Studies! (This program looks AWESOME)
  5. I will settle for vacationing in Iceland to polish my hopeful-fluency!
Question 3 - What is on your to-do list today?
  1. QT with the husband (a rare day off!) (ongoing!)
  2. Working on HELEN
  3. Revising Sigurd (not that it means Sigurd is DONE, or anything)
  4. Yoga
  5. Running a couple of errands
Question 4 - What snacks do you enjoy?
  1. Pringles and/or Doritos (not usually both at the same time)
  2. Ice Cream Novelties
  3. Apples and Peanut Butter
  4. Leftover peas
  5. Fresh Cherries, OMG. THEY ARE DELICIOUS! (Can it be Cherry Season yet?)
Question 5 - What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?
  1. Build a house with an awesome Library
  2. Get a vacation home in Iceland and/or Denmark for a writer's retreat type place.
  3. Buy my parents their dream house/land to retire on, and get the husband his own airplane to dink around in.
  4. Pay off all student loans AT ONCE
  5. Own a comic book shop!
The rules are that I must pass the Tag along to 5 Bloggers I admire....

Disclaimer: If you have already been tagged, I apologize for retagging you! It's more about the admiration than the Meme, I promise!

Simon at Constant Revision
Stephanie at Hatshepsut
Sarah of The Wit and Wisdom
Roni at Fiction Groupie
Lilah Pierce at Lilah Pierce (seriously, Ninja Turtles Week, how can that be overlooked?!)

You're it!

Also, Thanks to Harley Palmer who awarded me the Creative Writer blog award, and for that particular piece of entertainment, I will direct you to my previous answers if you missed them before!

 As an added enjoyment for you, my followers, who have been religiously attentive to my every post, I will include this Bonus FactORNot!

True Or False:
I can't tell Left from Right without looking for my wedding ring, or picking up a pen/pencil.

I'll reveal the truth on Friday!

Also, guys, if you haven't checked it out already-- Please head over to Do The Write Thing For Nashville and take a look at the items up for bid. I read yesterday that  t-shirts and smaller priced items for fundraising are on their way for those who can't afford to spend the skyrocketingly-awesome amounts on some of the great donations, too! So be sure to check back over yonder!


  1. Ohlala! This is totally fun- I'm excited to be tagged! It's on the list for Monday's post- I'm technically unplugged right now.

    Yoga is the best! And I certainly hope that in five years I can buy your books at Barnes and Noble!

  2. Comic book shop?! Very cool! I approve of this idea. lol

  3. Since I'm new to your blog it was fun to read these and learn more about you!

  4. Stephanie: haha, I'm glad! Enjoy your unplugged time! I hope that you can find my book in B&N then too, and that I can find yours!

    KM: Yes :) That way I can read all the titles I want, and take them right off the top! Plus, it would be fun to have a comic book shop, I think. I'd really love it.

    KarenG: welcome! :) I'm glad you enjoyed it.

  5. All of your answers confirm my suspicions. You are awesome :~)

    OhMyGosh, I'm going to go with FACT for TWO very important reasons

    1. This may or may not happen to me occasionally, especially when I'm giving out directions (which happens to be one of the many reasons I ALWAYS have a pen handy (um, don't tell anyone that, shhhhhh nobody heard))


    2. I just like the idea of that being the case. This would make you even more aces.


    p.s. Ooooh, I'm waiting for the smaller items too! Mainly because, as much as I tell people about it, I don't have enough money to buy a phone call with the Shark :~(

  6. lol!! Mia you are hilarious and awesome!

    Yeah, I can't afford to buy a phone call with the Shark either. Bidding got pretty astronomical. I mean, this is a good thing for Nashville! But not so much for my participation.

  7. Congrats on your award and it was so fun to read all of your answers for the tag :) I love Doritos too. And I love Pringles. And I would so totally build a gigantic library in my mansion if I were a billionaire.

  8. Hee! I haz tag. I will now challenge myself to make my answers as inconceivably strange as possible. Thanks! :)

    And fresh cherries are awesome. (But leftover peas? Rly? Huh.)

  9. This comment has been removed by the author.

  10. BTW, I totally want to smack Blogger and/or IE in the chops right now for freezing on me and multiply-posting my comment.


  11. Thanks for the tag! I just put my answers up!

    (And I'm way excited for Turtle Week, too!)

  12. Simon: Yup! cooked but cold, with a little bit of salt. It's delicious! And I'll clean the extra posts up for you :) I'm sure that your answers will be fabulously entertaining. No pressure :P

    Lilah: I shall head over to read them!

  13. Julie: I'm glad you enjoyed my answers :) I'm thinking Beauty and the Beast library--might as well do it right!

  14. There's a facebook group you can join, about that library!

    Ooh! Awesome! I'm excited to post something about this, as well!

  15. Sarah: I WOULD marry the Beast if I could have his library. I'm sure that my husband would understand :P

  16. You'd totally have to beat me to it. He dances, too, you know? It's like a win/win for me.

    By the way, I'm with Simon about the peas! But oh, man, I love cherries. All fruit, really. Well. Not starfruit. Or melon except for watermelon. Or--maybe I should put this in my own post, huh? :)

  17. I forgot to answer true or false!

    I totally think True. I occasionally have that problem. It makes it especially difficult when I'm teaching a fitness class and call out "Go Right!" and then I go left...

  18. Never tag me, as I would not know about it until days later. :)
