September 8th Questions:
1. Are you brunette? Blonde? Auburn? And is it natural? If you could pick any type of hair you wanted, the style and color, what would it be? (Can you link us to a picture?) I am a blonde (yeah, yeah, yeah). It is natural...but enhanced :-) When I was a kid I had platinum blonde hair. Over the years, it started getting darker and darker. In high school it was what used to be called "dirty dishwater blonde" (how appealing, right?) Anyway, I like being a blonde and so, I remain a blonde. I wouldn't change it. I have long hair because, for me, it's easier dealing with. When it's short I have to spend a lot of time styling it for it to look like anything. With it long...I can wear it down, wear it up, curl it or not, wash-and-go if I want. Much more versatile and time saving. And, to see a picture (this is going to tie in with the $15 Amazon Gift Certificate) just go to the Whipped Cream home page, where Marianne and I, as owners of The Long and the Short of It are celebrating National Shameless Promotion Month. NOTE: this is on our erotic romance site, but we don't think there are any explicit book covers on it. We are in the Author Spotlight this week.
2. How did your car get that little scratch/dent? (Because let’s face it, we ALL have car stories, right? If, for some reason you don’t, tell us about how someone else’s car got that scratch/dent). Oh, do I ever! Bob bought me a wonderful pick-up truck. It was beautiful. A 150 Dodge Ram Sport. One day we had to use it in the business (we try not to use my truck, because the tree and stump removal business is not kind to equipment). But, this day, for some reason lost in the mists of time, we had to. I took a load of limbs to the landfill on our long trailer. Well...I backed up to where the guys were supposed to pull the limbs off. Did you know that if you are pulling something, you're supposed to back up completely opposite to the way you back up normally???? Well, I soon found out when the trailer jackknifed and put a dent in my bumper. I cried all the way back to the jobsite and STILL feel like crying about it. My poor little truck.
3. In your opinion, what is the worst-tasting candy? Now, what is the best-tasting candy? How often do you eat candy? Do you keep it around your house? Do you allow your children to eat very much candy? licorice, hands down. Blech. Best tasting? Do you really need to ask? Chocolate, of course. And, yes, I do my best to keep it around the house, 'cause you never know when you're gonna just NEED it. And, no kids around the house now, but when they were little, they ate enough. It was never forbidden, because I felt all that would do would make them want it more.
4. Are you easily agitated? What really makes your temper soar? Do you stay angry for a long time? Or do you get over it pretty fast? Nope... I don't lose my temper hardly at all. But, when I do...it's Katie bar the door.
