Wodehousian Medicine (aka The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award)

A few weeks back Emily Ann Putzke of Taking Dictation tagged me with The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. It has taken me far too long to put this together but here it is.

1. Post a paragraph or a stanza of your latest writing project. (I guess that wasn't really a question ... will you please post a paragraph or stanza?) My newest writing project is currently in the outlining stage of things and so I don't really have a nice juicy paragraph for you. I'll give you one from Lee Ames instead.
 Colin snatched a croissant off the a la carte tier of serving plates. “I am not scheduled to fly until tomorrow night. So, I thought I would hop on the train and spend today and tomorrow morning with my favorite people. Ropery Street is as dull as tombs when you are alone. There is no one to hear me play Minnie the Moocher.” He winked at Gilbert who giggled.

2. Do you prefer writing with pens or pencils? Probably pens, although I do like to pull out my mechanical pencils every now and again.

3. What is one blog/blogger that inspires you to write? Please share why and provide a link! I am going to have to go with Elisabeth Grace Foley of The Second Sentence. I have been following The Second Sentence since its first day and her previous blog before that. It is because of her I discovered some of my favorite movies and books. By the way, she writes wonderful books herself. You should go check them out. I wrote a review for one of them here.

4. Are you scared of spiders or do you think they are fun pets? I do not like spiders. The tiny ones don't scare me too much, but make them big and hairy... *shudders*

5. Would you prefer to own a dog or a cat better (if any)? A dog. Cats and I don't get along very well. Okay, okay, I'm terrified of them. I am definitely more of a dog person.

6. Do you know any languages besides English and are there any other languages you would like to learn? No, I don't. I took Latin during high school but I am not proficient in it enough to say I "know" Latin. I would like to learn French and German, though.

7. Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Introvert. I like being by myself, but when I need to be refueled I go hunt out people.

8. What’s your favorite part about today so far? Seeing the beautiful French scenery while watching the Tour de France and finishing The Code of the Woosters by P.G. Wodehouse. If you need cheering or are ill and need a good read you should definitely pick it up. Nothing like a good dose of Wodehousian medicine to put a smile on your face.

9. What's one place and time in history that you'd love to travel back to? New York City in the 1950s. I would go see Judy Holliday in Bells Are Ringing on Broadway.

10. Which do you like better: Tea, Coffee, or Hot Chocolate? Of all the horrible questions to ask! How will I decide? I like tea, but I also really like my coffee with chocolate almond milk and there is nothing quite like a cup of hot chocolate during the cold days of winter. I'll choose coffee because that is what I have been drinking the most of lately.


I know I have been very absent this month but I hope to remedy that next week during the Legends of Western Cinema Blog Week hosted by Emma of A Lantern in Her Hand and Olivia of Meanwhile, In Rivendell. Be warned, I have a feeling my western loving heart is going to show itself in unrestrained ways.


  1. I'm incredibly flattered! So sweet of you to give me such a wonderful shout-out. And you're doing the Western week too! I can't wait to read what you come up with.

  2. Oooh, thanks for you little mention of our Western Week!!! I'm excited to see your western loving heart show itself in unrestrained ways. :-)


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I really do appreciate it. I do have a few requests or rules: no profanity (let's keep things PG, people), no spam, and please keep your words kind. "If you can't say something nice, do not say anything at all." — Thumper in Bambi (1942)

If you do disagree with what I say, say it kindly and civilly. I will remove any comments that do not comply with any of these rules.
