Smash, the Parody, and Eleven Questions

If you watch the NBC series Smash, or even if you don’t, go here and read the parody. Created by Gil Varod, the Broadway Abridged version is oh-so-much funnier than the series. I laughed until I cried.

My friend MJ Fredrick, author of  Bluestone Song, available through Amazon, tagged me this morning with these eleven questions:

1. What movie do you watch when it’s on TV, even if you own the DVD?

Anything Harry Potter–even though we own the entire series on DVD. Cherry is a Potter-o-phile to the infinite power.

2. Coke or Pepsi?

Coke. All the caffeine. All the high fructose corn syrup. If there’s a 12 step program, I’m a candidate.

3. Your ideal day off–all to yourself. Go.

All alone. All day. In my house. Alone. Did I say that already? WRITING. I talk to myself, wander around the house, sit down at the desk, putter in the yard. I’m a work at home mom. A minimalist. I slog out the words. I don’t like interruptions.

4. Your favorite invention in the past ten years.

Wow, that’s hard. I love my iPod Shuffle. It’s the size of a postage stamp. While I’m doing all that work–alone–I belt out Adele’s Rolling In the Deep. But I love my MacBook. It’s a window to the rest of the world.

5. What US landmark would you most love to see? 

I’ve traveled all over the continental U.S. so, Pearl Harbor.

6. Jewelry, or shoes?

Shoes. I really like finding expensive shoes at Goodwill. Not long ago, I scored vintage Cole-Haan tassel loafers for $6.00.

7. If you could have any car, money no object, what would it be?

This is so lame because money is no object, but I’d buy a Jeep Wrangler. We used to own one. When the second kid came along, we traded for the mini van. Bacon has never forgiven me.

8. What’s your favorite flower?

I love antique roses. They smell like heaven.

9. What room in your house would you love to have renovated?

The master bath. Beelzebub lives in my shower.

10. Summer or winter?

Summer. I’m a Texan.

11. What book are you reading now?

Just finished Wendy and the Lost Boys: the Uncommon Life of Wendy Wasserstein. Read my review here. I’m looking for a new read. Any suggestions?

I’m supposed to tag some other people, but I don’t have a steady readership yet, so anyone out there–TAG, YOUR IT! Feel at home to answer in the comments or leave a link to the answers on your own blog. I promise to visit.
