So... guess what? One of my favorite bloggers and Internet acquaintances, MorningTime4 of The Ups and Downs of My Not-So-Average Life, is hosting a blog party to celebrate her birthday. And to show my appreciation for her as a person and blogger for her special day (I don't even regret using that horrendous phrase), I'm joining in!
I had so much fun answering her fun blog party questions, too. (I love interview-format things of any kind, so thank you to Morning for hosting this and feeding my obsession.)
(Psst. If you've got a blog yourself, perhaps you should consider participating! Morning is such a sweet and fun person, and her blog is truly high-five-worthy. If you can't join in, please feel free to drop in and tell her happy birthday. I'm sure she'll appreciate it.)
1. What do you love about the fall season?
Pretty much everything. Autumn is my favorite season (not least because of the fact that it has two names). Falling leaves, cold clear cut-glass mornings, warm tea, blue-toned rain, whispering between trees. That feeling of settling down to rest. I really, really love fall.
I would probably stay very, very far away from it. You see, I am a coward.
Hands down, it's plagiarism. Honestly, I don't understand why anyone would do it - everyone feels terrible, and it's a crime of ideas. Ideas are supposed to be the purest forms of things, and stealing those is the most horrible thing I can think of. The fact that it happens on the Internet, and often, makes me feel sad and slimy inside.
Sing in the rain. It rains enough where I live that I could pretty much pick any day to do it, as opposed to snow, which attempts to happen but really doesn't. Also, I like singing. Also, I've never successfully built a snowman. (Sad, I know.)
(I also totally saw what you did there, and I applaud you.)
I would totally be a part of the audience, because all of these require some semblance of social and/or teamwork skills and those are mysterious things that I do not have. I would still really enjoy it, though.
Oh gosh. SO many. Morning herself is one, of course! But also:
Kim. Adelyn. Rose. Rona. Alyssa. Samantha. Lydia. E. R. Cait. Emily. Kara. Paola. AnQi. Ava. Kristianna. And many more.
Both of those would be very... revealing.
I'd probably go with the bubble wrap, though, because I could just paint over it and it would cover me up pretty well. Plus, I could make strange popping noises while I walked, and then I could pop the remainder of the bubbles the next day.
I RUN. RUN FROM ALL THE CAMERAS.
Right now, it's probably the word "garrulous". It's a rather odd-looking word that means "excessively talkative, especially on trivial matters" - rather like Polonius in Shakespeare's Hamlet (he just automatically comes to mind whenever I read that word's definition).
I would most definitely call it Awkward Silence. Either that or Gatsby Puns. Or The Perpetual WIP. (I obviously have issues.)
