Writer's Block: Who's your BFF?

Who is your oldest friend (i.e., the friend you have known the longest)? How often do you see or talk to each other? Do your close friends tend to stay the same year after year or change over time?

My oldest friend is also one of my best friends--his name is Mark. We met when we were four years old, on the first day of pre-school at our Catholic elementary school. We've stayed friends throughout all this time (we are now 22!) and even though we don't see each other often, when we do see each other, it's like no time has gone by at all.

That's what I think a real friend is--no matter how much time has passed, you're just able to pick up where you left off. You don't need to know every single detail of the person's life either; it's just this point of comfort and support that you reach.

Writer's Block: Fantasy Sports

Imagine you manage a coven of baseball-playing vampires. The Cullen family is really strong this year and you want to bring in a ringer. Which currently active MLB baseball player do you sire?

It's only natural that vampires would play baseball...they're really into bats!

Side note: Do the rest of you Writer's Block answerers have no sense of humor, or what?

Writer's Block: Word for Word

How many (if any) songs do you know by heart? What are they?

Most of the entire score of Nightmare Before Christmas, except for the Town Meeting song and Oogie Boogie's song. Since the Town Meeting song is half-sung, half-spoken, it always throws me off. And I just don't like Oogie's song =(

I know plenty of other songs by heart...as I do believe most people would...

Writer's Block: All About My Mother

Who is your favorite mother (the character, not the actress) from television or the movies?

I can't pick just one! But I'm going to have to say that mine is from a video game...

SHADOW HEARTS COVENANT SPOILERS!!! game came out in 2004 but it's a major one...

Karin Koenig. Even though you don't actually find out that she's Yuri's mom until the very end of the game, when she travels back in time to meet and marry his father.

Writer's Block: You Don't Know Me

Our friends don't always know us as well as they think, particularly when it comes to likes and dislikes. Which popular book, movie, band, food, TV show, etc. would your friends be surprised to hear that you don't like?

Though I'm a Batman fan otherwise, the Dark Knight movie didn't impress me. I thought it was a really well-made movie, and I can understand how other people love it (and I will occasionally talk about the things I did like about it), but to me the ultimate Batman movie is Batman Returns, with Catwoman and Penguin and the penguins with bombs strapped to them and all the silliness contained in that movie. I just don't like the 'realistic' depictions of superhero movies nowadays. It's a comic book movie, throw in some comic-logic!

Writer's Block: Self-Indulgent

If you had to give up one indulgence for 40 days, what would it be?

So instead of answering the question, I'm going to reminisce about when I was a wee young girl. I went to Catholic elementary school and we were obliged to give up something for Lent. At that time I would always watch Disney videos at night right before I went to bed. So I decided to give them up for Lent.

One day, I went to K-mart with my mom and there was a Disney movie playing on multiple screens of TVs mounted into the wall. I started getting upset and saying that I had broken my promise and that God would hate me, etc.

ANYWAY I'm kind of just doing the bare minimum and giving up meat today and for the next few Fridays...but I LOVE beef so I guess that's somewhat of a sacrifice? Oh, beloved beef...

Writer's Block: Left Behind

What do you want done with your body after you die?

I would like to be buried in a special coffin that I'd pick out before I die. There's a coffin wrapped up to look like a brown paper package that says "Return to Sender" which I always thought was really cute and funny. Otherwise, I'd like some other crazy design...even though I'm dead that doesn't mean I still can't have things my way.
