11 Questions Meme!

The awesome Kathleen Doyle at Writing, Reading and Life has tagged me in a meme. Answering questions about myself? Not my strong point. It only took me around fifty attempts to write my 'About Me' page. Once I've answered her questions, it is my duty to tag 11 other bloggers (one of them must be from the Writers' Platform Building Campaign) and ask them a brand new set of questions.

My Questions:

1. On average, how often do you look in a mirror (practicing faces for your writing does count!)
Probably 3-4 times a day. *Frets* Is that too much?

2. What is your weirdest/strangest/most interesting habit? Be honest!
Okay, here goes. I do this weird thing where I mix two random types of food together and actually enjoy it. Some of my discoveries are fried fish with vanilla ice cream, strawberry jam sandwiches with cheese and mango with chilli and salt.

3. If you could go anywhere in the UNIVERSE, where would it be and why? (Fictional places are totally part of the universe.)
I would go to Hogwarts, Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley. Who doesn't?

4. What fictional character do you hate with a passion?
Ooh, good question. There's this character in Thorn Queen (by Richelle Mead) who does something to Eugenie at the end of the book that I loathe. He gets what he deserves though.

5. Upon landing on a deserted tropical island, you realize you have only one thing to help you survive! What is it?
I am such a boring person. I say water!

6. What do you hoard collect?
Animals! That's how I ended up with three Siberian Huskies and three cats.

7. You’ve just landed on a brand new, never before discovered planet. What do you name it?
I have this thing for "colour" names. I'd probably name it something like Auramine or Cyan.

8. Fill in the blank: I am proud of myself for finishing the first draft of Runaway Mortal!

9. You have half an hour to cook a meal for your family/friends/people. What do you make?
Something Mexican. Chicken enchiladas or a burrito.

10. You’ve just been asked to give an impromptu speech on any subject. What do you talk about?
Books, of course! Reading them and writing them!

11. Is there life beyond our planet?
Of course! (His name is Daemon Black)

Your Questions:

3. If you could be in any book or film, what would it be?
4. What are you allergic to?
5. Complete this sentence: I am the best at ____________!
6. What is your pet peeve?
7. What is one type of food that you could eat forever and not get sick of?
8. Rollerblading or rollerskating?
9. Imagine you got a brand new dog. Would it be a boy or a girl and what would you name him/her?
10. What's your ultimate overseas destination?
11. Was it Colonel Mustard in the Study with the Wrench?

  1. Hogwarts! Of course! <---I love it. Waaaay fun to read about you, Komal ;) And what a fun tag idea! :D

    1. Look forward to seeing your answers, girl!

  5. Thanks, Komal! I'll be answering in the next few days. How fun!

    1. Yay! I'm excited to see your answers!

  6. Fried fish on ice cream? Really? Wow, you have some interesting taste buds.

    1. It was about six years ago and it made me feel sick afterwards. Then I tried it a few more times but haven't had it recently.

      I don't think my tummy would agree with the weird combination now.

  7. Lots of fun questions and answers! I think the mango with chili and salt sounds good, but the thought of fried fish and ice cream makes me gag a little. But I don't really like fish to start with. :-)

    1. I think I'd be sick if I tried eating it now.

      Thanks for stopping by, Jocelyn!

  8. so fun! and your mango mixy thing with cheese and chili sounds AMAZING. yum.

  9. My husband has a weird food combo he likes - egg and cheese on a roll...with jelly! Whenever he orders it, the deli guys always thinks he's weird for wanting to combine eggs, cheese and jelly.

    Thanks for tagging me!

    1. Oh, wow! That is super weird but I love it! Maybe I'll try it one day!

      Also, I love anything with pickles. Anything!

  10. Wow. Some of your food combos are interesting.
    My cousin does cheetos and chocolate ice cream.
