Lauralynn tagged me, and Juli tagged everyone with a similar thing, (and I’m too lazy to edit the oh, so long blog post drafts I have lined up) so I decided to do a combo of their questions. I’ll ask my questions at the bottom, so if you answer (some or all of) mine, link to it at the bottom (or answer in comments).
Who is your favourite author? This is a difficult question because there are so many now, (which is a great thing to be able to say) but I’ll have to limit myself to three that I’ve been in the mood for recently – these three mostly for creating some of my favourite characters. Charlotte Bronte, Patricia Briggs, and George R. R. Martin. Look how long I have to wait for the next in the series. 😛
How old were you when you had your first real kiss? Mother don’t read this. 😀 I think I was probably thirteen or fourteen. I honestly can’t remember it. Sorry, dude. But don’t feel bad, most of my teenage years have been conveniently blanked out. Note to anyone still in school: No, they are not the best days of your life, so don’t worry.
Who is your hero? *sings* Wonder Woman. Buffy. I’m all about the fictional heroes.
Who is the sexiest person on TV right now? Oh. Mr. Farrell, don’t read this. 😀 Right now as in current seasons showing right now? I’m not watching a lot of TV of late, but if he’s in Supernatural or Game of Thrones, chances are he’s doing it for me on some level. (Except Sam. Never Sam. Sorry Sam). And not just the caveman types either – Aidan Gillen’s been pleasantly disturbing me since Queer as Folk.
Who is your favourite vampire? I’m not really a vampire fan, and I’m struggling to think of any… Maybe Spike (or Angelus) or Eric Northman. They’re relatively likeable, while still being absolute dicks. Always fun to watch.
What would be your ideal job? Writer. O_O
What do people do that annoys you the most? I am renowned as a grumpy biatch. Everything annoys me. Today, I hate when people tell me I can’t do something or I have to do something. Rules are made to be fecked out the window, people!
What’s the name of the furthest city you’ve travelled to? Marbella.
Any nicknames? Um… Clairebear… but I have to really like you to let you live after calling me that.
What “bucket list” item do you hope to accomplish within the next 5 years? Finish a series! Possible. Own a house. Unlikely.
What’s your least favorite chore? All of them. I’m not good with chores. Ironing pisses me off though. I happen to like creases. 🙂
Who’s your favorite character from a book? (If you’re a writer, you can list one of your own.) Sticking with the favourite author question, my favourites right now this second are Jane Eyre (and Mr. Rochester, ahem, Toby Stephens), Mercy Thompson, and from A Song of Ice and Fire, I have a ridiculous number of favourites. They’re pretty predictable too – Arya, Gendry, Jon, Tyrion, Daenerys, etc. I’m not very original. 🙂
Any vacation plans on the horizon? No. But it would be nice. We haven’t had a family holiday yet.
What’s your favourite quote? From a Robert Frost poem: But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep. Always a good reminder. (By the way, I get a kick out of the most highlighted phrase from Thirst on Amazon. I need to get it on a mug or something to honour the awesomeness of the highlighters).
What new skill would you like to learn? I’d love to play the drums. Sadly, I have no sense of rhythm.
