Question Time

This is my last post before I return from the cold wastelands of America. Okay, so the California coast isn't a wasteland, but it is cold. 70-degree highs and no humidity? That's scarf and gloves weather, folks! (No seriously. In Thailand it is).

In preparation for my return, I'm opening the floor up to questions. You may ask me any questions at all, serious or not, professional or totally inappropriate. I'll answer all of them when I come back, and I'll probably even be honest!

Now, last time I asked for questions, I got none. Zero. Other bloggers might consider that an insult, but I found it merely inconvenient. You forced me to come up with new content on my own! How dare you? If that happens again... you're all taking twenty laps around the blog, while I sit in my umbrella chair sipping lemonade.

I mean it!

Would you like a jelly baby?

If the square of the hypotenuse is the same as the square of the other two sides, then what is a mouse when it splints?

Why do we drive on a parkway but park on a driveway?

Hmmm, Matthew kind of out-shined me there. So we'll go with...

Besides writing and drawing what's your favorite thing to do?

And, where else in the world have you been?

If you had a day to yourself, and the assurance you would never get caught for anything you did, have to justify yourself, and if you wanted, no one would even know... so what would you do for those 24 hours?

Hey Adam--have you ever read "The Edge Chronicles"? My daughter and I just started reading the first book the other day.

What's the children's book that you read to your little ones so frequently that you've memorized it?

When did you know you were an artist?

What's your favorite non-kid, non-writing activity?

What the deuce IS a jelly baby?

I'm curious which PART of the CA coast-- if you're in the middle-ish, here's hoping it warms up before Fiance and I take a trip up there mid-July. If you're down south, you picked a good time to come. This is the NICE weather everyone talks about when they talk about CA. :)

I'm also curious why you picked Thailand? You probably have explained that a bajillion times, and I apologize if so.

Being a new follower, I would like to ask:

What prompted you to become foster parents in Thailand?

1. In a no hold barred fight who would you rather be, the Emperor or the Lord Marshal (obviously the answer is Riddick, but other than that)?

2.Anica is a great name, but if there had been no vetting process (Cindy), what would have been on her birth certificate?

3. Would you rather write an amazing book (LOTR caliber) that doesn't get published until after your death, or a shite book that gets made into a bunch of movies (Twilight), and all your friends pat you on the back and say "great job" but then ridicule you on message boards around the internet, and you will have no other books to redeem yourself?

Do these jeans make my butt look big?

Hey Adam, let me help you out with that last one.

Since there is no right answer to this question, ie. any verbal acknowledgment of the question leads to agony, the responder must consider other information. From my perspective, since I'm going to get in trouble regardless, I may as well go big. The added benefit of an aggressively "wrong" answer is that it may prevent future questioning along the same lines. Oddly enough, this makes it the most loving response. An aggressively "wrong" answer also gives you the added benefit of being able to say, "I'm sorry, I was being sarcastic because I thought you were joking." In essence avoiding an honest answer to the question by tactfully plowing right through it. Taking all of this into account, the only answer is "Of course not honey, your butt makes your butt look big."

Why am I still single?

Emmet said...

would you rather give up cheese for the rest of your live, or be a veegan for a year?

I'm relatively new to your website. I'm curious to hear on what are your thoughts in regards to writer's block.

Do you have any other family over in Thailand?

What do you have in your writer's "drawer?"

Do you really own an umbrella chair?

What's something you really love about living in Thailand?

Is reverse culture shock hard? (I struggle with it a lot.)
