I was tagged by the lovely Zezee to do this tag! It’s taken a bit to get around to it because life is a thing that throws last minute curve-balls at you. But here it is!
Zezee’s questions for me:
1. Do you think you would survive a zombie apocalypse?
NOPE! I think I have the smarts to last for a while, provided I’m still in the middle of buckfuck nowhere when it starts but I lack the stamina to be able to outrun and last long term.
2. How do you think the phrase “taste the rainbow” came about?
Honestly? Likely similar to the Mill Street Beer slogan: some intern got drunk at a party and said something that would normally be stupid to someone high up in the company, but they liked what they heard and made it a slogan.
3. If you happened to fall into a fairy world that somehow matched who or how you are, what sort of fairy world would that be?
OOOOOOH! A Every Heart a Doorway question! I think it would be very earthy: trees, nature, rivers, waterfalls. I would hope it would have magic as well, and I picture there being nice, polite fairies and other magical beings. Hopefully dragons and griffins too. As for it being either Logic or Nonsense, I feel like Logic would make more sense to my science side, though if there was a bit of Nonsense I think I could handle it. Not High Nonsense, though. If this makes no sense, go read Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire ASAP!
Do you think you’d survive in Westeros?
Again, no. I have the smarts, but that or my lack of strength/stamina would get me killed. Plus having a 21st century brain, I could not deal with the lack of female rights or basic hygiene.
What your favourite book by your favourite author?
If you insist on twisting my arm and making me name only one, I think Squire by Tamora Pierce would win. But there are sooooo many good books by her and my other favourite authors.
If you use e-readers, what needed change would you make to them?
I don’t have an e-reader, but I do read on my phone and computer. I think a bit more customization wold be nice but I think e-readers have that. Another thing I would like it the ability to highlight a short quote and be able to copy/paste it other places. I get that this becomes a copyright issue since people could copy the whole book to places, but there has to be a way to be able to copy a few short lines.
What’s the last nonfiction book you read?
Ha, I might have read one recently just because of this question since the last ‘book’ form non-fiction I could think of was from middle school (there was likely others since, but I couldn’t think of what they were).
Working stiff: Two years, 262 bodies, and the making of a medical examiner by Judy Melinek, MD and JT Mitchell.
