It’s my BFF’s birthday – it’s one of the big-ends-in-a-zero birthdays! Sending out big peanut butter wishes and kisses to my partner in crime, Evelyn Jules!
To celebrate, I turned the tables on my favorite girl and asked her to answer the same questions she tossed at me when I visited her blog earlier this month. Check out her answers and be sure to wish her a happy birthday in the comments!
Hi, everyone! I’m so happy to be here today, on this, the day of my birth! I had so much fun with these interview questions. I hope it gives you all a chance to get to know me better!
Describe yourself in three words. Quirky, happy, peanut-butter-addict
Any nicknames? One of my buddies calls me Julyn. I’d rather not talk about my other nicknames. There are scars. 😉
What was your favourite Christmas present? My favourite present of all time has to be the 10 free lessons at Circus School. And a close second is my moon shoes.
What’s your dirtiest secret? One time I smeared Nutella all over my face. And I liked it.
In your opinion, what’s the most important part of the sandwich? This is a really tough question for me to answer. Obviously the bread is important. But I think the condiments can make or break a sandwich. The condiment quotient is key.
As authors we tend to have to research many bizarre and unusual topics. What’s the strangest thing you’ve Googled research-wise? Well, I wrote a story set in a penis museum. *nods* It’s possible I researched things such as ‘the length of a crocodile’s penis’.
What was your favourite childhood toy? Fisher Price Little People. I still have them. And their bus. And their house. And their pool. And all their little cars….
Share your favourite word or phrase with us. Positivity! I can’t help it. I just love the word and everything it represents. It makes me ridiculously happy. It’s my mantra.
Do you believe in love at first sight? I do. I’ve never experienced it personally—not yet, at least—but I do wholeheartedly believe in it.
What writing accomplishment are you most proud of and why? A few weeks ago that penis story I mentioned became a print. I mean, it’s part of an anthology which is now in print. I’m so touched that my first print is a penis print. I’ll stop saying penis now.
If you had the opportunity to live one year of your life over again, which year would you choose? Hands down, 2012. It was the best year of my life. I accomplished so many things I never dreamed possible.
What’s the funniest/weirdest/dirtiest status message you’ve posted on a social networking site? @EvelynJules I think my closest friends are the ones I can call a filthy whore and get away with it.
Quick and dirty:
Cake or pie? Can’t I have both? Oh, fine. I choose rainbow chip cake with whipped cream icing.
Jocks or nerds? I’m gonna have to say jocks, ‘cause I’m a bit of a jock myself.
Coke or Pepsi? Um, water? I don’t like pop. 😛
Boxers or briefs? Boxers.
Poolside or beach? I am a total beach girl. I get sand in bad places.
Pancakes or waffles? How about a panfle?
Baked or fried? The health-conscious, salad-eating side of me will kick my butt for this, but gimme the fried food. Guhhhhhhh.
Aaaaaand, last but not least, tell us about your new book!
Cheapskates in Love is a romantic comedy that pokes fun at the world of online dating.
Here’s the blurb:
It’s couples’ skating night down at the local rink and Elena Armstrong can’t seem to keep her cocky jock blind date around long enough to knee him in the balls. Sadly, she was too much of a cheapskate to pay for a membership to an online dating site and based everything on Leonard’s personality profile alone. Big mistake.
At the opposite end of the rink, Ben Kessel, another cheapskate on a blind date with Iris, the ice princess, is having a similarly miserable time. Elena, a hater of all things sports-related, inches out into the skating world butt-first and collides with Ben. After sharing their hilarious and horrifying dates-gone-wrong stories, the two disappear and make everything right again on the floor in the players’ dressing room. Almost everything. They forget to exchange numbers. Now these two cheapskates need to make the ultimate sacrifice: pay for a membership to the online dating site so they can track each other down. But is the possibility of love really worth the price of $24.95 per month?
