Welcome to Wednesday, folks. Rob Ford is still raging, new comic book are on the shelves, and people are still scratching their heads raw pondering the question, “How can the government let The Biebs roam the world free, terrorizing an unsuspecting populace? What am I paying taxes for?”
To sum up, the world is still spinning, and with each revolution comes the opportunity to reinvent oneself. Or at the very least, evolve.
And so, in the spirit of evolution, here is a brand-spanking-new blog feature…
5×5 With The Hook
The premise I simple; The world is a hard place to live in these days, so I’m going to do my part to lighten the mood. I’ve cast a wide net and some cool folks have found themselves caught up in my particular brand of madness. I’ve asked the
hard-hitting, deep, whimsical, offbeat questions and they’ve answered.
My first victim?
She’s the driving force behind her own patch of the blogosphere, According to Jewels.
Her genius helps make The Indie Chicks both fearless and definable. In short, she’s long on creativity, sass and a boundless sense of humor. Now that you’ve been acquainted, let’s begin, shall we?
Do you like to wear hats?
This is a trick question. I want to love to wear hats. I think they’re great but unfortunately my giant dome and the fact that my hair is so thick and curly makes them fit horribly on my head. I’ve found one that works for me and yes, I love wearing it.
You’ve accomplished quite a bit in your writing career so far, what’s the dream goal? The brass ring?
Firstly, thank you for the accolades. I still have a lot of writing goals to accomplish. Every time I conquer an old one I add at least 2 more to the list. Right now my goal it to be published in a print publication, which is coming true with the special edition print version of The Indie Chicks magazine. Of course once I had that in the bag I became determined to get published in magazines I don’t own. I also want to be a novelist. I have always wanted to write novels for adults as well as young adult science fiction/fantasy series. Once I have those under my belt it will be getting on the New York Time’s Best Sellers List, Book Club circuits, doing book signing tours, selling the movie rights to my novels, and making a cameo in a film based on my novel. So you see, once I hit a goal I make a LOT more. Without a dream, a goal, and a game plan I feel lost. I’m nothing if not driven.
Your favorite superhero movie?
I am pretty sure any love you had for me will be lost when you realize I’m not into superhero movies. Unless Jennifer Connelly in The Labyrinth is a superhero for saving her baby 1/2 brother from David Bowie, aka the Goblin King. In that case, definitely her.
Chick flicks: Fun and inspiring to watch or a blight upon humanity?
I’m the consummate Indie Chick, totally badass and a hardcore go getter, and I still love a chick flick. Here’s the thing, it’s not the chick flick that’s the problem, it’s the chicks out there who mistake it for reality. There is nothing logical, real, or remotely worthy of modeling your love life after in those movies but they are fun. I can get behind a mindless escape for a bit, a good cry that time of the month watching one, and don’t get me started on the romantic comedy genre.
Justin Bieber: Threat or menace?
Menace. An absolute freaking menace and he needs to be stopped. I can’t publicly admit that I’d pay money to put out a hit on him…but I will say the thought has crossed my mind.
Told you she was cool.
That about wraps it up for this inaugural edition of 5×5, boys and girls. I want to thank Jewels for being so generous with her time and let’s face it, Jennifer Connelly is definitely a superhero if an Indie Chick says so.
I’ll be making the rounds searching for more victims soon, folks, so watch your virtual mailbox. Send me to the spam box and I’ll send The Goblin King after you….
Be well, my friends.
