Tag, You're It!

Yep, it's another blog tag meme! I was tagged by my "friend" Carrie Cox, also known as Wonderwegian Here are my incredibly pithy responses. Feel free to leave your gushing admiration in the comments section!

What do you think of when you the hear the word tag?
Toe tags. Yeah, I know it’s morbid, but I am writing about a dead girl, you know!

Do you think you're hot?
No, but my husband does, and that’s all that matters to me!

Upload a picture or wallpaper that you're using at the moment.

When was the last time you ate chicken?

Thursday night. Foosackly’s chicken strips with honey mustard—yum!

The song(s) you listened to recently.
Seeing as how I am listening to music most of my waking hours, there are way too many to list, so I’ll just go with a couple of favorites—“Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynyrd and “Perfect” by Pink.

What were you thinking as you were doing this?
I really should be writing, but at least this will update my woefully outdated blog!

Do you have nicknames? What are they?
Toyce (my husband doesn’t call me anything else!) and my daddy called me Hot Shot. Can you tell I was a Daddy’s Girl?

Tag 8 blogger friends:
Lee Ann Ward
Joyce A. Anthony
Aston West
Chris Cox
Ryan James
Wanda Argersinger
Janet Elaine Smith
Ron Berry

Who's listed as No. 1?
Lee Ann Ward, my best friend and literary sister. (Yes, I know there’s a space in her name because it goes there!)

Say something about No. 5

One of my fellow members of the Mobile Writers’ Guild and creator of Elwood Cox, librarian extraordinaire!

How did you get to know No. 3?
We had the same first bad publisher! Fortunately, we both got our rights back and went on to find another publisher. Aston is my favorite intergalactic flyboy, even if he does have a weakness for a certain yellow liquor!

How about No. 4?
Chris is so many things to me—circulation manager of the library, fellow MWG member, facilitator of the Classics Revisited book discussion group, critique group partner, and favorite faux-British actor!

Leave a message for No. 6.
Wanda, I know I’ve been MIA from Jay’s group lately, but I promise I’ll be back as soon as school starts and a certain—ahem—distraction is gone from my days. I’m glad we’re friends on Facebook so I can still keep up with your hilarious adventures!

Leave a lovey dovey message for No. 2.
Joyce, you are one of the most compassionate, loving people I’ve ever known, and you never fail to brighten my day when I read anything you’ve written. I’m so proud to call you my friend (or fiend as we call ourselves in Jay’s Playhouse!)

Do No. 7 and No. 8 have any similarities?
Hmm . . . well, they’re both Yankees. And they’re both talented writers with a great sense of humor! But I have to point out that Janet is way better at self-promotion than Ron. Of course, Janet is way better than everybody I know!

~Stay true to yourself and your dreams will come true!


  1. Simple man is one of my favorites too!
    *feels sudden urge to come to your house and french braid your hair while eating cookie dough*

    Please expand on the yellow liquid that Aston likes to drink...
    *looks a bit worried*

  2. Good luck with that French braiding idea--my hair is about 2 inches long all over! LOL

    Yellow LIQUOR, Karen! Alas, Aston is a slave to Vladirian liquor. You can read all about it in HEROES DIE YOUNG. ;-)

  3. Okay, Miss Belle--my contribution to this post is up at:

  4. Yay! Going there to read your answers now!
