Q&A Meme

Oh, why not . . .

Where do you live: Downtown Seattle, Washington. I look out my window at the skyline and the Space Needle.

Four words that sum you up: Stubborn, abrasive, caring, driven.

Wallet: Standard black leather.

Sunglasses: Long ovals with blue lenses.

CD in stereo right now: Sting - All this Time.

Tattoos: None yet. :-) Plans are in the making, though.

Piercings: Left ear, but my body rejected it.

Clothes: Jeans and black long-sleeve button-up.

Makeup: I'd tell, but then I'd be giving away my secrets.

In my mouth: The wonderful taste of coffee.

In my head: Wondering why I'm doing this meme.

Wishing: That one day I'll be able to support myself off of my writing.

After this: Amber and Dennis' for party! Woo-hoo!

If you could get away with it and murder anyone, who would it be? Nah, my FBI file's too large as it is.

Person you wish you could see right now: All of my friends in one place.

Something you're looking forward to in the upcoming month: Finishing my novella and at least four chapters on my novel.

Do you like hot wax: Well now that's a silly question. ;-)

Do you like incense: Yes, even more so because my ex-wife hated it.

Do you like the taste of blood: I used to. When I was in law enforcement and the military. If I knew an apprehension would get physical, I'd be nervous until I got hit and tasted blood in my mouth. As soon as that happened, my head cleared and I knew I was in control. Sick, huh?
