Please welcome another one of my Terrific Team Members, AJ! She guestposted at the A-Z Challenge blog about her novel Armageddon, so don't forget to check it out. It's totally cool – choose your own ending! Alright, let's get to know her better...
"Where do you hail from?"
I hail from the land of cheese and beer. On Wisconsin!
“Would you ever join a team that was headed off to colonize Mars?”
Maybe! I do get motion sick though, so they'd have to put me in stasis for the transit because otherwise I'd have a pretty sick tummy the whole time.
"Which is your favorite fictional character and why?"
Anne Shirley, from Anne of Green Gables. She is such a deliciously feisty nerd, and was pretty much my hero as a young girl.
"Name a book that didn't meet your expectations."
Eat, Pray, Love. Uggghhhhhhh....
"Describe the last Halloween costume you wore."
The last two times we've dressed up for Halloween, I've gone as a Korean soccer player, and Chris has gone as a German soccer player. I was in South Korea for the World Cup a few years ago so wearing my jersey is quite nostalgic.
"Do you know how to 'Gangnam Style?'"
I do! Unfortunately when we were in Korea last fall, we didn't make it to Gangnam. But we did teach my nephew how to sing it, and that was about the cutest thing ever.
"What items could you typically have in your pockets?"
Actually...only my phone, and that's only some of the time. My purse on the other hand is a treasure trove of pens, notebooks, a Kindle, a copy or two of my book, maybe some choir music...
"Cake or pie?"
Pie, of course! Because obviously the cake is a lie. Seriously though, my strawberry rhubarb pie is to die for. If Tina's a nice minion-chief I might bring her some this summer... (Tina seconds this motion)
"What makes you cry? (Emotional reasons. Onions don't count.)"
Oh my goodness. Any commercial with anyone in a military uniform. Especially if they're returning and hugging their loved ones for the first time... I'm done for.
"What is the most unusual thing you have ever given as a gift?"
One year for my dad's birthday, we took a bunch of his underwear and used fabric paint to spell out HAPPY BIRTHDAY on the butts and left them out for him to find when he got home from work. He was.. not pleased.. but we thought it was the funniest thing ever :)
As a bonus AJ has joined Andrea in the new tradition of Tina's Terrific Team sweater reveal. So here's AJ in her favorite kitty sweater. Thanks, AJ for sharing so much of yourself with us. Don't forget my pie, and I'll join you in stasis. I get car sick so easily they'd seriously have to drug me for the trip to Mars...but I'm glad you'll be along ;-)
