This is the interview questions I sent out to all the bloggers I read, the second is the series is Jessica Rose at Irascible Jots. So I hope you all like the questions, I went by the Even/Odd Methodology, one serious one not so much. I will use Jessica’s Icon to denote her answers and the other Icons to denote my questions. I hope you can figure out who is who.
French fries: Shoestring, steak, curly, crinkle cut? What condiment(s) on them?
Curly with seasoning and no condiments EVER.
How long have you been blogging and why?
I’ve had a few blogs over the years, so I suppose that I’ve been blogging for about eight years.
What odor/smell/fragrance to you is the most pleasant?
Thanksgiving turkey. Someone should bottle it.
Favorite things to read? What genre? (you may expand on this if you so desire)
I love mystery and suspense in any time period, with a liberal splash of romance… not enough to make things sappy, though.
A boat you are riding in is about to capsize what did you do to contribute to this?
I sat in the boat (which was a mistake, because I don’t know how to swim).
What is the best thing about blogging?
Blogging is cathartic. It helps me articulate my thoughts in a clearer manner than journaling (because a blog post has to make sense).
How much ground can a ground hog, hog, if a ground hog could hog ground?
I’d say an island roughly the size of Guam.
What is the worst thing about blogging?
The worst thing about blogging is the risk of putting my personal thoughts out for public consumption. I don’t mind disagreement, but I do mind personal attacks. I’ve been lucky, and haven’t run into an incredibly large number of trolls, but the possibility is always there.
If you could force one famous person to read your blog who would you force, and how much would you force them to read?
I’m assuming that I can choose famous dead people… I would force Dorothy L. Sayers to read one or two posts that I’m proud of, and then I would force her to assess my writing style.
Where do you hope blogging will lead you too?
At some point, I’d like to write novels (at least part time), and blogging has been my method of making myself write on a schedule. Being in grad school right now, I haven’t been able to blog as much as I used to, but I’m looking forward to getting back to it.
This has been fun! Thank you for asking.
I have enjoyed her observations on life and some of my favorites have been In Other News I’m Black, Condition and Conditioning, and Friday Soapboxing. Just click on over to her site, I am sure you will find something you will enjoy.

Witty observation, disparaging remark, question for A.A., well this is your chance.
