My 3 questions to answer:
1. What are some of the things you like to do that make you happy (besides writing)? Getting out in the sunshine, swimming, walking, bike riding, horse riding, reading, and coffee, shopping, summer holidays, and spending time with family.
2. Are you a fan of Weird Al’s “Word Crimes”? To be honest, I had never heard of Weird Al’s Word Crimes before, but just watch a video of it and thought it was pretty cool. So perhaps a fan in the making?
3. Are you a Sun Goddess/God or do you pal around with the Abominable Snowman? Defiantly a sun goddess! I love summer! Which is great because I live on the Gold Coast, in Australia. It’s pretty much warm all year round!
