Eight Ridiculous Questions With… D. Renee Bagby

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on August 1, 2008 by Lexxie Couper

Whether as D. Reneé Bagby or Zenobia Renquist, Reneé lives in her imagination. When not traveling through her fantasy worlds, she can be found in MD living with her husband and two cats.

She is an Air Force brat turned Air Force wife, which means she’s accustomed to travel and does it whenever possible (so long as she doesn’t have to fly). Her favorite pastime is torturing her characters on their way to happily-ever-after for the enjoyment of her readers.

On the few occasions her muse flees the scene of the crime (otherwise known as writer’s block), Reneé likes to read (comics, manga, and romance), go to the movies, play a few levels of Diner Dash or experiment with a new chain maille weave.

Eight Ridiculous Questions With…Carolan Ivey

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on June 1, 2008 by Lexxie Couper

Carolan Ivey is this month’s victim.

Carolan Ivey is a North Carolina native living in northwest Ohio with her husband, two children, two highly opinionated dachshunds, and far too many books.

A technical writer by day, in her spare time she tries to indulge as many of her varied passions as possible – reading, traveling, finding new uses for her burgeoning lavender plants, singing with various classical choral groups, and exploring her Scottish roots through music.  She is also a Karuna and Celtic Reiki Master.

She plays guitar, recorders and penny whistle, and recently acquired a bodhran in Ireland.  She is now cheerfully driving her family insane learning to play it

Her answers made me giggle.

1.Ever knowingly broke the law?

Yes.

Oh, you wanted me to elaborate? 🙂   Other than speeding, I once was an accomplice to littering with J.C. Wilder. She wanted to get rid of a bunch of loose gravel in the back of her pickup truck, and we drove out in the dead of night to a construction site and swept it out onto an existing pile of gravel.

Yeah, that’s us, outlaws!

2. Are you a moaner, a screamer or completely silent? (You know what I mean <g>)

Depends on the circumstance. In our old house, I had to be silent. In our current house, I can pretty much be as, er, vocal as I wish. (as long as the windows aren’t open – the neighbors are kind of close)

3. Can you stand the sight of your own blood?

Oh absolutely. Blood is nothing. It’s vomit I can’t handle. I was a terrible mommy when it came to my kids’ yakking. The minute I saw them heaving, I was so outta that room and yelling for my husband to come take care of it. LOL

4. Ever tried cross-dressing?

Only for Halloween. 🙂

5. Who is your favourite Muppet?

I’m torn between Kermit, and Statler & Waldorf. 🙂

6. If you were a sex-toy you’d be…?

Pretty much anything except this one…
7. Weirdest place you’ve ever ‘done it’?

Well, we tried “it” on a mountainside once, and almost fell to our deaths…

8. If you were a vegetable, which would you be and why?

A home-grown tomato, baby!  Fresh, juicy and hot from a sunny summer garden. 🙂

Eight Ridiculous Questions With Julia Talbot

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on May 5, 2008 by Lexxie Couper

Julia Talbot has been assimilated by Texas, where there is hot and cold running rodeo, cowboys, and smoked brisket. A full time author, Julia has been published by Torquere Press, Suspect Thoughts, Pretty Things Press, and Changeling Press. She can most often be found in coffee shops and restaurants, scribbling in her notebook and entertaining other diners with her mutterings.

How far is too far?

Getting drunk and taking your clothes off at… Oh, wait. Y’all don’t want to hear that. Honestly? Don’t lie to me. Period.

Can you define happiness?

You know it. Embrace your inner whatever. In my case, I stopped trying to be an intellectual and embraced my inner redneck. I have bullriding, frequent Tim McGraw concerts and lots of cowboy boots. Life is good.

What’s the best sound in the world?

Right now, it’s my puppies yarping. I have two six month old basset hounds, and they are an absolute joy

What music would you like played at your funeral?

Hmm. I’m torn between The Rain King by Counting Crows (so people remember to drama llama and cry, naturally) and This is Where the Cowboy Rides Away, by George Strait, because any song that ends with, “Oh the last goodbye’s the hardest one to say.
This is where the cowboy rides away” is the perfect funeral song!

Would you rather lose an arm or a leg?

A leg. I need both hands to write, man. I can’t type with my poor diabetic toes…

Are you a folder or a scruncher?

I am a scruncher of mammoth proportions. You should see me when I’m going on a long road trip. I look like the Beverly Hillbillies. Thank goodness for those Space Bag things, that squoosh all the air out of your clothes. I’d never be able to pack without them.

Spit or swallow?

Swallow. I say own it if you’re gonna do it.

If you were a porn star, what would be your name?

Blondy Peachybutt, of course. Ride ’em, cowgirl!

Julia’s answers had me rolling on the ground laughing my butt off! Check out her site here – http://thegates.net/juliatalbot/

Eight Ridiculous Questions With… Celia Kyle

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on April 3, 2008 by Lexxie Couper

This month, I subjected the very kinky Celia Kyle to the Eight Ridiculous Questions treatment. Celia is one of the craziest people I know and her responses had me on the floor in stitches! Enjoy…

1.Ever knowingly broke the law? *da dum* *da dum* *breakin the law, breakin the law* Ahem, sorry, slipped back into Beavis and Butthead land…

No, not knowingly. Unless speeding counts. I did makeout with a guy in a car in a field once, but I’m not sure if any laws were broken then…. LOL

2. Are you a moaner, a screamer or completely silent? (You know what I mean <g>) I’m a moaner (gotta give him encouragment) until we get to the big shOw and then I pretty much hold my breath and become silent. 😀

3. Can you stand the sight of your own blood? Ugh. No. Blood? Ick.

4. Ever tried cross-dressing? Yes, actually. Growing up, I danced (tap, ballet, jazz, you name it) and one of the routines was a swing number. I was the guy. Man’s dress shirt, red tie, suspenders, page boy cap, all the way… I was thisclose to convincing our instructor that we should stuff our pants with socks to ensure realism. Sadly, she didn’t go for it. LOL

5. Who is your favourite Muppet? Miss Piggy. She was hot even with her extra cushion. I mean, I write BBW, who else would I pick? Miss Piggy would totally have been a heroine in my books. Except for the fact that I’d probably be sued like nobody’s business by Jim Henson. 😀

6. If you were a sex-toy you’d be…? So many toys… Ack! I’ll go with a vibrating bullet. Those little things are sooooooo versatile. 😉

7. Weirdest place you’ve ever ‘done it’? Ugh, I’m horrible with this. Hubby and I are incessantly boring when it comes to the locations for sex. Sad, but true. Now if we were talking positions…. LMAO!

8. If you were a vegetable, which would you be and why? A cucumber. And do you really have to ask why? I mean, everyone knows what cucumbers are good for, right? 😉

You can find Celia being naughty here And honestly, I had a ball at her site. She really is a talented, wicked lady.
