En Fuego!

The Aspiring Sub-creator herself, Sarah McCabe, gave me a “Blog on Fire” award, which means I get to answer a wonderfully strange list of questions (and you get to read my wonderfully strange answers).

To share the wealth, I’m nominating Angeline Trevena for the award, too. Check out her corner of the blogosphere!

Thanks, Sarah!

Onto the fun, random questions:

1) Are you a rutabaga?
Not the last time I checked.

2) Who is your current crush?
Well, my current author crush is John Stephens. Just read his Emerald Atlas and loved it! Otherwise, I have a lifelong crush on one Jon Bon Jovi.

3) Upload a heartwarming picture that makes you smile.
How about a video? This one always makes me grin. Dog + Deer = Best Friends!

4) When was the last time you ate a vine-ripened tomato?
Um, the container garden had technical difficulties this year…several difficulties. Therefore, no tomatoes were harmed in the posting of this blog entry.

5) Name one habit that causes other people to plot your demise?
I read Smithsonian Magazine at the beach. Apparently this is very embarrassing for my friends. They have threatened to a) leave me b) pretend they don’t know me and c) toss my magazine in the ocean. So far, none have deterred me!

6) What is the weirdest, most-disgusting job you've ever had to do?
I cleaned the tiger and polar bear exhibits at our local zoo once as an aide for the “Junior Zookeeper” class. But that was pretty awesome, as well as disgusting!

7) Where da muffin top at?
I may or may not have eaten it. And that is all I will say on the matter. :)

8) What author introduced you to your genre?
Anne McCaffrey…she made me believe in dragons.

9) Describe yourself using obscure Latin words
Fidelis. Ad majorem dei gloriam.


  1. Hi Nicole:

    We're in the same glorious fantasy group over at Write Campaign. I am a little sad to see that you are not a rutabaga, but I feel our online friendship can still flourish. Best of luck on the campaign trail. Go Fantasy 3!

  2. Great to meet ya, Kate! I'm so looking forward to connecting with other fantasy folks. Hope to make the campaign rounds tomorrow in more detail!

  3. Hey there! We're in the same fantasy campaign group! Thought I'd drop by to say hello! ;)

  4. And I can't see your follow button, so I'll be back to follow. :)

  5. Hi Chantelle! *waves* Yay fantasy people!

  6. Ah, I love obscure Latin words! My title would perhaps be thus:
    Auctor fictionis fantasticae, neophyta Mysteriorum Romanorum

    By the way, I'm over here from your Fantasy 3 Campaign group, saying hello. :)

  7. Hi. That award sounds like you had fun winning. Getting to the whirlwind intros for the Fantasy 3 Campaign group. See ya later.
