Tagged!

I've been tagged by Ruth at Ruth + Writing. I've never been a very fast runner. I'm a good hider, though! So here we go with the tag questions.

The Tag rules:
1. You must post the rules!
2. Answer the questions and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
3. Tag eleven (or how ever many  you can think of who haven't been tagged) people and link to them.
4. Let them know you’ve tagged them.

Ruth's questions:
1. Would you rather eat ice cream or popcorn? ICE CREAM! That's a no-brainer for me.

2. Who is the biggest influence in your life right now? My son. Our kids influence us in ways beyond what we can ever imagine.

3. What do you do to relieve your frustrations? Write and clean.

4. Can you keep a secret? Yes. Do you have one to tell me?

5. When it comes to books, what is your biggest pet peeve? Whiny protagonists.

6. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? Closed. No closet monster is ever going to sneak up on me.

7. Do you have a theme song? Please share. Maybe the Wordgirl theme song.

8. Where would you bury treasure if you found some? In the most obvious spot. Disguise it as something ordinary and out in the open. No one would suspect it was treasure!

9. What book and/or movie could you read and/or watch over and over? The Harry Potter series for both the books and movies.

10. Have you ever done anything illegal? Yes. I jaywalked this week.

11. Is it okay for guys to wear pink? Yes. If it suits their skin tone.

I'm not going to tag anyone. It seems like everyone has been tagged recently. Yet if you want to answer a couple or all of my questions in the comments below, please feel free to do so and entertain me!

1. If you were a character from a TV series, which one would you be?
2. What's the strangest thing in your refrigerator right now?
3. If someone wrote a biography about you, what would the title be?
4. Can you describe an atom?
5. What is the worst job you've ever had?
6. If you couldn't be a writer, what career would you choose?
7. Name five people you would most like to meet.
8. Is Elvis really dead?
9. Crayons, pencil crayons, or markers?
10. What's your favorite amusement park ride?
11. What is your ideal home? (It can be fantasy!)

    1. My husband feels the same way about pink. My son has a pinkish-orange shirt that he likes, but since it's a Star Wars shirt, it negates the color!

    1. What's even funnier is that I was right downtown when I jaywalked carrying my son, and the mayor did the same thing right after me! Though I didn't know he was the major until my friend told me later.

    1. Nice choice for number one. I like your biography title too! Tofu isn't strange to me either, but I think I have some baking soda boxes that have been in there for years.

  9. I love your answer to number 8!

    And the job I'd choose if I weren't a writer: An artist. I know, I know. It's probably even harder to break into than writing is. I'll stick with writing. :)
