Stealing this one from Annie: Why/how did you choose the name of your blog?
The name comes from “The Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe. He’s one of my favorite writers and that story is one of my favorite works. It’s dark and twisted, kinda like me. Here’s the line from the story:
Now this is the point. You fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. But you should have seen me. You should have seen how wisely I proceeded –with what caution –with what foresight –with what dissimulation I went to work! I was never kinder to the old man than during the whole week before I killed him.
I’ve had many blogs over the years but this is a name I plan on keeping. Don’t worry though, I don’t have any hearts under my floorboards!
What is your go-to stress release?
I would probably say reading or music. Actually, anything that allows “me” time. Maybe it’s just staying in my room for a bit. Maybe it’s reading a book outside. It can even be blaring music while driving home. I don’t have one sure fire thing. I think it all depends on the stress and situation.
What inspires you?
This is a tough question. I guess everything does? I have the typical inspirations like family but my friends inspire me as well. Sometimes a random post on the internet inspires me, or a line in a movie. The world is filled with inspiration. You just have to be open to seeing it.
What is your all-time favorite TV show?
This is the most loaded question ever. I have to pick just one? What’s sad is a lot of my favorite shows started off strong, but then faded or ended horribly. “Dexter” will always be one of my favorites based on the earlier episodes. The last few seasons were a bit of a disappointment. I guess the one show that’s never really let me down (it had a few rough spots but they all do) would be “Psych” which just ended. It was always true to itself and hilarious to watch. A few of my favorite episodes include “Scary Sherrie’s Toast, “Tuesday the 17th,” and “Heeeeere’s Lassie!”
You’re on a deserted island. What do you HAVE to have with you?
Sunscreen! I don’t want to get sunburn! But on a serious note, a way to communicate with my friends and family. It could be an old school flip phone for all I care but I need something to keep in touch. I think that would help from going insane as well!
Now I’m supposed to pick five people and give them some questions to answer. I honestly don’t follow too many blogs (I’ve fallen behind again) but here we go!
And now into the questions!
1. Has your blog helped you through any rough times?
2. What made you start blogging?
3. What was the last movie you saw? Would you recommend it?
4. Do you have any vacations planned?
5. If you came into a million dollars, how would you spend it?
I know, some real hard hitting stuff there! Again, I want to thank Mindy for selecting me! It was a surprise and appreciated!
