Weekend Wonder: Poekitten

General Questions…

Name: Poekitten
Penname:  Poekitten :)
A sentence or two about yourself:  I’m a Milspouse that was born & bred in New England and has moved to the Pacific Northwest.
A sentence or two on what your blog is about:  My blog is about life in general…what I’m reading, making, cooking, where we’re going, and the projects we’re doing on our new house…basically how we’re trying to stay out of trouble.

Book Lover Questions…

What is your favorite book and why?  This is a really hard question…only one?  Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
Other favorites?  The Harry Potter Series, The Hunger Games Trilogy, The Tudor “series” by Philippa Gregory, Any book by Lori Wick
What’s your favorite genre to read?  I prefer historical fiction.  I do not like horror of any kind!
Where do you like to read?  I don’t know that I have a favorite place…some place comfy with something yummy to drink.
Do you prefer paper books or ebooks?  I like both.  I love reading an actual book but I love the convenience of my Kindle.
Do you prefer to buy or borrow books?  Both!  I love bookstores, from the big box stores to a independently owned ones to the secondhand ones.  But if I can borrow the book and save money for other books, that works for me too!
Do you stop reading when you are tired or when you hit chapter breaks?  Often when I hit a new chapter…
When you finish a book do you usually keep it, throw it away, sell it, or give it away?  It depends on the book.  If I really like it, I’ll keep it since I’ll most likely reread it.  I don’t throw away books so if I didn’t like it or won’t reread it, I’ll give it away, either to friends or Goodwill.
What helps you decide on a book? (Book reviews, suggested by friend, by browsing the shelves, etc.)  The title, the author, the cover, the teaser, recommendations from friends.
Do you prefer to read a book that stands on its own or is a part of a series?  Both. 

So You Want to be a Writer questions…

A few sentences about your writing: What do you write (blog entries, novels, poetry, etc)? Why do you write?  I write a blog.  I don’t write anything else and I have no desire to write a novel.  I don’t write poetry either….I had to take Creative Writing in college and that was a big FAIL.  The only C I’ve ever gotten EVER.  10 years later and I’m still upset about it!
Did you always know that you wanted to write?  Nope!  I started my blog so I could keep my family & friends on the East Coast updated on what and how we are doing.  I never expected to enjoy it so much!

Favorite Questions…

What’s your favorite food?  My favorite food is pizza followed by my husband’s stuffed pork chops.  Delicious!
Favorite color? My favorite color is red.  Brown is my favorite accent color.
Favorite song?  Don’t have one…I like all kinds of music.
Favorite movie?  I’m not a huge movie person…that would be my husband!  I really like Clue.
Favorite TV show?  Absolute favorite of all time would have to be The West Wing.  I own all 7 season and watch them in order 2-3 times a year.  I also like shows like Criminal Minds, Law and Order, and Bones.

Random Questions…

If you developed a superpower what would it be and why?  I’d like to be invisible. 
What did you want to be when you were little?  When I was little I wanted to be a doctor…a pediatric oncologist to be exact.  This probably stemmed from the fact that my dad was diagnosed with cancer 3 different times over the course of my childhood.
What is the answer to life?  I believe the answer to life is Jesus…or rather a relationship with him.

  7. a woman's right to shoes...I am so happy you enjoy them.

    Matt...I agree. I'm hungry.

    a woman's right to shoes (again)...Thank you!

    JJ...I think so too. It's been fun.

  8. Loved the interview, but I'm afraid Poekitten's food blog and I aren't going to get along, as I don't do the pork thing and can't dig pork chops or pepperoni pizza. I loved 'Julie & Julia,' though, so I'm totally in favor of food blogging, at least theoretically.
