Who Are You? Kari wants to know :-)

Since the weather is getting nice again and we just passed St. Patrick's Day, I am filled with fun and joy. So I decided to have a little fun on the blog today. You all know a lot about us, but we don't know that much about you, our fabulous readers.

Cassy sparked the game bug within me, so let's spin off of her game and onto mine. The: Who are you? game. Okay, so it's not really a game, but it is kind of fun. We are faced with choices and decisions every day both in our personal lives and our writing. Sometimes we have to make decisions quickly. So try not to think too much and just answer the questions below with the first decision that pops into your head, and feel free to add any new ones you can think of. I'll start us off....

cats or dogs dogs (I have a cool cat in my book, but I would probably own a dog)

beer or wine wine (Hands down!)

pepsi or coke pepsi (I switch between the two but like Pepsi a little more)

early bird or night owl early bird (I turn into a zombie at night :-)

Alaska or Hawaii Hawaii (I've been to both and they both rock, but I love the heat)

black or white Purple (LOL)

italian or mexican Mexican (yum yum)

beach or rock climbing rock climbing (Love adventure and get bored at the beach)

sunshine or rain sunshine (it brightens my mood instantly)

car or bicycle bicycle (love riding bikes and motorcycles!)

hot weather or cold weather hot weather (I would rather sweat then freeze any day)

sugar or carbs sugar (I could skip meals and eat sweets all day, forget the bread)

Come join the fun, folks, and give us a little peak into who you all are :-)

Kari: Fun! What would I add?
-Black or White- my new is red with the black and white, sometimes purple ( I just ordered a purple sleeve for my laptop)
- Coffee or Tea- Used to be coffee, now green tea (I'm getting old I guess
- Pie or Ice Cream- Neither I really don't like sweets. Not a virtue thing, just don't like them
- Wine or Beer- Definitely wine, but not so much of it anymore. It catches up with you
Cats or Dogs- Definitely dogs. I'm terribly allergic to cats. I've often thought one way to kill me would to have a pack of cats in the house when I'm away and have me return, not knowing they were there
- Music or Silence to write- Definitely silence. It's too noisy in my head already.

Fun. Others??

Lindsay said...

Dog and cat- Both- I've written a dog in my books.
beer or wine- wine
pepsi or coke- neither-ginger ale or ginger beer
early bird or night owl-night owl

Black or white-???
Italian or Mexican-both
beach or rock climinb-beach
sunshine or rain-depends on my mood

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Oooh, good one's Cassy.

Coffee for me (green tea at night)
silence to write for sure.

anyone else?

Kari Lee Townsend said...

LOL too funny, Lindsay.

And black or white meaning colors. Like do you prefer black or white clothes or are you somewhere in between like a specific color.

I prefer black to white (more slimming :-) but I love purple!!!

Lindsay said...

I really don't care what color my clothes are as long as they cover the body.

Anita Clenney said...

This is fun.

Cats or dogs dogs - dogs

beer or wine wine - Ugh. Neither.

pepsi or coke pepsi - now we're talking baby. Either, anytime.

early bird or night owl early bird - night owl but I'm trying to shift into an early bird

Alaska or Hawaii Hawaii - Hawaii

black or white Purple - green

italian or mexican Mexican - Mexican

beach or rock climbing rock climbing - rock climbing

sunshine or rain sunshine - sunshine. A cozy rainy day is okay, but there nothing like the sunshine and a breeze

car or bicycle bicycle (love riding bikes and motorcycles!)

hot weather or cold weather - hot weather, but not so much that I'm melting

sugar or carbs sugar - sugar. I love sugar. Krispy Kremes, candy, pie, cake, cookies....ah! And this is why I had to take my crime photo for the site, hiding behind tree branches to camouflage the pounds I need to lose.

And for Cassy's addition Coffee or tea - tea. I'm not a coffee drinker. I love tea, iced or hot.

Anita Clenney said...

whoops, mistake. I cut and pasted the questions into the comment box and missed the one about riding bikes or motorcycles.

Bikes. Hubby has a motorcycle and it terrifies me. I love the ride, love the feel, but I just can't get past the thought of my skin smashing into metal at 60 MPH!

Oh, and I do love both black and white colors. I love the slimming look of black and the fresh look of white. But green is my fave color.

Rochelle Staab said...

How fun, Kari! I think I'll copy this and ask my characters the same questions.

beer or wine- ugh, neither!
pepsi or coke- pepsi please (our childhood landlord was a Pepsi driver)
early bird or night owl-both. I enjoy the quiet of very early morning but love the intrigue late at night
Alaska or Hawaii-never been to Alaska, Hawaii is just okay to me. Alaska for adventure.
Black or white-black, black, black
Italian or Mexican-Italian is gooey cheesier
beach or rock climbing-beach
sunshine or rain-I LOVE the rain
car or bicycle-car/lazy
hot or cold weather-cold, as a novelty. Simpler to warm up than cool down but if you mean where I live? Hot.
sugar or carbs-carbs, please. crispy french fries, warm bread, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese.
coffee or tea - decaf coffee
pie or ice cream - don't they go together?
cats or dogs - cats are complex and wonderful. dogs are just plain amusing. both.
music or silence to write - must have silence.

Cassy Pickard said...

I can't believe I didn't "vote" on the Italian or Mexican food choice! Do I have to say? Guess you'd all know.

Rain or sunshine-Rochelle you are right about the rain. When it rains, at night I sleep sooo well. I love writing when it's raining outside. But, then, the sun is finally out in Connecticut and all my doors are open. The dogs are sleeping on the thresholds with their noses sticking out.

Liz Lipperman said...

what fun! Here are my answers:

cats or dogs - dogs

beer or wine -neither. Margaritas

pepsi or coke - diet pepsi caffeine free

Alaska or Hawaii - Hawaii (I've been to both and they both rock, but I love the heat)Ditto on this answer.

black or white - black and turquoise

italian or mexican - hard choice. Can I say both?

beach or rock climbing - beach with a good book

sunshine or rain - sunshine
car or bicycle - airplanes!!

hot weather or cold weather hot weather (I would rather sweat then freeze any day)Ditto.

Katt said...

Root beer!
Early bird
No extremes, cool or warm are best
mexican, hold the beans

Tiffinie Helmer said...

I loved reading everyone's answers!
Here are mine.

Dog and cat - Both, but as I’m into no responsibility, cats win.
Beer or wine - Don’t drink but if I were sitting next to Liz, her margarita might disappear.
Pepsi or coke - Green Tea Frappuccino!
Early bird or night owl – Night owl. I have no desire to catch worms.
Alaska or Hawaii - Alaska, commercial fisherman here.
Black or white - Blue
Italian or Mexican - Chinese.
Beach or rock climbing – Beach, love water sports and sun worshiping.
Sunshine or rain - Thunderstorms.
Car or bicycle - Convertible! Preferably a fast one.
Hot or cold weather - I’d rather bundle up and watch snow fall than swelter in the heat. I’m thinking Arizona heat here.
Sugar or carbs – Bread is my weakness, especially a warm loaf of crusty sourdough.

Kari Lee Townsend said...

OMG Lindsay you really do crack me up!

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Krispy Kremes....Anita, you are a girl after my own heart!

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Rochelle I love to write to the rain, too. Must be a mystery thing :-)

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Hee hee I love Margaritas too, Liz, I just can't drink as many of them as wine :-) Bring on Crimebake, though, and I'll give it a shot!

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Katt...Mexican, hold the beans! Now that's funny right there!

Kari Lee Townsend said...

You're a rebel, Tiffinie! And how'd I know you were going to answer Alaska :-) I loved it when I went on my 15th wedding anniversary. I think we need to go back and have you show us around next time.

Tiffinie Helmer said...

Kari, I'd show you the "real" Alaska as long as you signed a non-liability form. :)

Lindsay said...

Guess the Crime Bake will definitely be interesting this year. Seances. Tea leaf readings. Skrying. Kari drinking margaritas. Cassy forgetting her iPhone charger and borrowing mine. Oh, and Cassy being presented with cans of Campbells Tomato Bisque soup. Me wearing what every color clothes I want. Watch out. I've been told I look good in puce and pink, brings out the color in my eyes.
And last but not least-certain ladies dancing on tables.

Kari Lee Townsend said...

You're on, Tiffinie :-))
