What is your favorite drink?
Tea! It’s very versatile and has such a large variety of flavors.
Can you think of any books where the characters drink it at least as much as you?
- The Good Daughter – One of the characters in the book goes to so far as to pack her favorite brand of tea when she travels. I haven’t done that because my taste buds aren’t very sophisticated and one earl grey tastes much like another earl grey unless they added something special to it.
- Ancillary Mercy or any of the Imperial Radch trilogy – These guys drink tea all day every day. I think it might be part of the religion, or at least it’s very much a part of their culture. Now if I couldn’t drink tea anymore, I don’t think it would alter my life that drastically, but I do drink it 2-4 cups a day.
- The Iron Druid brews a special Vitali-tea that has kept him young and strong for 2,000 years. Give me some of that! (But not too much because I really don’t want to outlive my husband and kids. The druid isn’t allowed to share it except with other druids so I would apparently have to train for 13 years first. Nevermind, just give me some of the Gunpowder green tea. )
What is your favorite food?
Bratwurst. ‘Nuff said.
Can you think of any books where the characters eat your favorite food?
I can’t. But if you have recently read an interesting book that involves bratwurst… I would love to hear about it.
What is your favorite dessert?
Chili’s Chocolate Molten Cake. My second favorite is any form of giant chocolate chip cookie covered in vanilla ice-cream. (Dear Chili’s: I’m super sad that the only Chili’s in Seattle was in the airport, and I think that closed down last year. It’s been 4 years of not enough cake.)
Would you rather have a life-time supply of dessert or a life-time supply of books?
Man I’m coming up with some silly questions. Books, of course!!
