Tagged - a new game!!

Whew! Tagged twice in one week. I'm so glad though, these questions are juicy & interesting! Alexandra tagged me so here goes:

What were three things when you were little you wanted to be when you grew up?

An astronaut (after watching the movie Space Camp)
An actress (but only a famous one!)
A teacher

You can live one day over again from your childhood. What day will it be?

A day spent in Algonquin Park with my grandparents, parents, and my brother.

You have two minutes (and a mover with you if you need heavy lifting help!) to grab 5 things from your home before it morphs into a polka dotted hobgblin and hops away. What will you take? (Food/drink/family/friends excluded!)

This is a hard question. In Canada I still have some precious things in my parents house. So I'll pick three from there & two from here. From there I'd take my photo albums, my 'treasure box' that is full of small precious things, and some special books. From England I'd grab my laptop and ... who am I kidding, probably more books!

You have to paint one quote on your kitchen wall. Whats it going to be?

Um. I am so bad at this. I have BOOKS of quotes. For a kitchen I think it would either have to be: "If at first you don't succeed, redefine success." by Robert Fulghum or "...sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." - Lewis Carroll

What is one thing you want to have accomplished by the end of this year?

Find a publisher. (oh please, oh please, oh please!)

You are moving to the moon for one year and can only bring one flower with you. What kind will you bring?

A gerber daisy.

You just received word that aside from one flower, you can also bring five books with you too! Your choices?

EGADS! Only Five?
- Chocolat (I can't resist the magic and the chocolate!)
-365 Words of Well-Being for Women by Rachel Snyder (one of the most joyous books ever!)
- a blank book to write in
-a big fat trilogy like Lord of the Rings (because it would keep me busy!)
-Meditation Secrets for Women (because I'd have a lot of time to do the sessions!)

That was so fun reading through them! When I was writing up the questions this afternoon, the ones left were the most lease insane-sounding so I went with those! Laini's profile reminded me that I wanted to read the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Les Mis so I'm bringing those! We can have a " Lord of the Rings Moonbook's Club." I totally forgot about a blank book. Guess I'll have to use my breath to shape words on the moonbeams. See you there!

I am so enjoying getting to know you all better, there are so many interesting details in your answers.
As of tomorrow I will be posting my weight loss details directly on my blog under Self Portrait Tuesday where I will try to get to the bottom of my eating habits by writing about them...feel free to email me had the great idea of also asking each other a question to do with dieting/health and related subjects so I´ll be using this aswell. I am really determined to see this through as I´m sick and tired of thinking about my weight all the time, I want to strike "lose weight" off my "to do list" once and for all!

Hi Meg! I'd love to see both you and Alexandra find publishers this year. As I've shared with you in emails, my journey to publication was one of getting out and networking at conferences, meeting people face to face, and from all I've heard and learned, there's nothing like it. Jim and I found a publisher (Image Comics) for our graphic novel The Drowned (horror) by going to comic book conventions; I found my agent and publisher at SCBWI, and the company that licenses Laini's Ladies at the New York Stationery Show, from face to face meetings. These were all expensive and difficult things to do, but necessary. Of course, I hope you win the contest -- but I don't think you should wait to find out. Keep working on it! I'm pulling for you!

And I love the Lewis Carroll quote - I have it on my fridge.

I just love the Lewis Carroll quote ... and the fact that as I chase this tag around I'm developing such a wonderful "To read" list.

I'm currently exploring Narnia (I'm on book 4), but as the many Potter and Narnia fans I encounter also enjoy the Rings I'm adding them to the list ... hopefully I'll get them read this year!
