"Would You Rather" edition
This week I had the chance to devise our weekly blog content, and I'm in the mood to play. Since getting us all onboard for a rousing evening of Dungeons and Dragons isn't likely, I decided to challenge my friends at Romance Writers Weekly to a game of Would You Rather... with as much or as little explanation as desired.
As an added challenge, I've asked my pals to find photos for each of these to get bonus points. Yea. Points. What's a game without arbitrary rules and keeping score? I'm still not sure of the prize. But it'll be lack-lustre, I promise! ;)
Would you rather - eat haggis or chocolate covered bugs?
HAGGIS! By a kilometre. By a mile. By a landslide! Since I've eaten haggis before, and enjoyed it, this is an easy one for me. But honestly, even if I hadn't eaten this scrumptious Scottish treasure already, one thought of bugs would have me gagging on the floor.
Would you rather - skydive or scuba dive?
SCUBA DIVE! In case my choice of images hasn't made it clear my feelings on both. Look at the nice serene underwater world, and the terror of tripping in some killing device and dancing from a plane at a gazillion feet above the universe.
Would you rather - red headed hotties or blonde haired hunks? (Cause we all know we love brunettes the best!)
TIE! Sorry. I can't choose. When I started doing this, I thought I knew. Red headed. I mean, I thought "red haired hottie" and bam! Kevin McKidd sauntered into the picture. But then I went looking for blonde hunks, and there were so many to choose from. Brad Pitt is my favourite blonde, but all the awesome images of him were crazy or black and white. Then there's Charlie Hunnam (who I think got the Sons of Anarchy look from Brad Pitt, but I digress.) And Ryan Gosling. Oh my. So many blondes to choose from. So it's a tie.
Would you rather - no reviews or all three star reviews?
THREE STARS! A review is a review, as far as I'm concerned. It means someone read something I wrote (yay!), and took the time to tell me, and the world, about it. No reviews leaves me feeling worse. Is it terrible? Is it just okay? Did anyone who bought my book even read it? No. Give me a review anyway. If it's bad, I can learn from it. If it's good, I can learn from it. And if I have a bunch of three star reviews, that tells me I have a lot to work on. And that's the power of reviews!
Would you rather - be stung by one wasp 10 times or 10 bees one time?
10 BEES! I have a hard time believing I even asked this question because I am TERRIFIED of things that sting. Wasps are evil. And bees, well. I'm coming around to bees. My husband wants to get honey bees in the spring and he's made it his mission to educate me on bees. Crap. I think I have to change my answer. Because I know if I bee stings me, it will die. And bees are in trouble. Which means humanity is in trouble.
1 WASP! So damn it all. I have to let that terrible, burning evil Wasp sting me. 10 times. I'm dying a little as I type this. Someone please be standing by to kill that sucker when it's done. And then bring me to the hospital!
And there we have it! The game is complete. Buzz on over to Teresa Keefer to see her answers. I have to admit to enjoying these types of blogs, where we get to know our friends and favourite authors a bit better.
Feel free to play along in the comments and share your choices!
