Oh No! It's the Dreaded Meme!

Poor voodoodoll by Jorshma on Deviant ART

I was never good at playing tag. My attention span is not always as I would like it to be. However, Anthony tagged me with this meme and with the spirit of doing anything with this blog today, I choose to join in.

1. If you could have any superpower, what would you have? Why?

I could go for the usual suspects, x-ray vision, immortality, etc. However, after watching Zombieland for the third time, I think I would like the ability to have power over a zombie, controlling it's every move. I think it will be of great use when the zombie apocalypse hits, don't you think?

2. Who is your style icon?

I'm suppose to have a style icon? Who sent that memo out and why didn't I get it?

3. What is your favorite quote?

"Human beings can always be relied upon to exert, with vigor, their God-given right to be stupid." Dean Koontz ~~ enough said.

4. What is the best compliment you’ve ever received?

I know certain someone who constantly compares me to THE Stephen King even though I doubt I've come close to earning the comparison. It's flattering nonetheless as it's not from a member of my family.

5. What playlist/CD is in your CD player/iPod right now?

I'm probably one of the few people in the universe who doesn't own an iPod. Uncertain if that makes me lucky or not. In my CD player is a nice mix of Disturbed, Paramore, and Breaking Benjamin with a side of Theory of a Deadman and Skillet.

6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?

Depends on the moon phase at the time.

7. Do you prefer dogs or cats?

Dogs are sweet but I prefer cats. They don't bug me every five minutes or try to steal food from my plate when they think I'm not looking.

8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?

It was named Southern Expressions, but I soon realized people were becoming rather disappointed when they weren't getting a full list of our colorful charm here in the south. So, expressions was turned in to Writemares due to the fact I've had more bad writing dreams than good ones as of late. Gotta break a few eggs right?

Now, I know this is the part where I'm suppose to tag other people. But I don't like it when people make me do stuff. If you want to participate, all the bells and cauliflower to you. I promise no curse will be placed upon you if you decide not to join in. Really.....I mean it. My voodoo doll is in for its 1,000 hex check-up. So, you're safe.

Haha, I'm sorry. I hope you didn't feel obligated to participate. :-)

I love your super power idea. Maybe I can figure a way to adapt it into my giant pumpkin power...

Not at all. Didn't really have anything else planned to write for the day.

Well, I thought the possibility of having my own zombie army sounded like a lovely idea. I'm sure the two abilities can work some kind of agreement. ;o)

I want the ability to teleport. I could go visit anyone I wanted without the hassle of air travel. Lunch in Paris? No problem!!

Jennie Bailey said...

That is a GREAT quote by Dean Koontz! This was fun to read. I may do it next week and see if I get others to as well. I'm like you, I don't want to "tag" anyone.

All I'm sayin' is KING needs to watch his back. I am not even kidding. Just keep doing what you're doing....

If I ever run into him at a meeting (not likely), I'm going to put a whale in his ear about you.
