Tag! You're It!

One of the really great things about blogging within the literary community, is that everyone once in awhile you get to be involved in something totally silly and random, and it takes your right back to your childhood. Or as I like to call it, the good ole' days. The days when things were fun and silly, and I didn't have to clean up after anyone but myself. AWWWWWWWW(sigh), the good ole' days!

Anywho. This week we get to play a friendly game of tag on our blogs. So if you're reading this, consider yourself tagged. You're it!

1.) If you could have a superpower, what would you have? Why? That's a no brainer for me, I'd choose to have the power of invisibility. If you're super strong and you can't see me, I beat you. If you can fly but you can't see me, I beat you. And if you have x-ray but you can't see me, that power's useless. Not to mention, invisibility is just awesome. I could send in my manuscripts, and then eavesdrop as the lit agents and pubs read them. How awesome would that be?

2.) Who is your style icon? Me. Honestly, I don't even think much about what I wear before I wear it. As long as it's comfortable and looks somewhat professional,I wear it to work. And as for the rest of the hours of the day, I'm in my pajamas. The moment I walk in the door, I throw those pjs on. Pajamas are like a great big hug for your entire body. And don't even get me started on comfy slippers.

3.) What is your favorite quote? My new favorite quote is from the new Wallstreet movie. " If you stop lying about me, I'll stop telling the truth about you." In the words of pretty much anyone from that 70's show, "Burn!"

4.) What is the best compliment you've ever received? One of my students just made me a poster that says "School Rocks and So does Mrs. Stanford!" It's huge, too. I have it hanging on my classroom door. All the other teachers are so jealous of my awesome poster.

5.) What playlist/cd is on your iPod/cd player right now? I have varied taste. You will find songs from The Sound of Music, John Denver, Judy Garland, Flo-rida, Rianna, The Tings Tings, and Sia. I love any song that has great lyrics.

6.) Are you a night owl or a morning person?

Night Owl. Nuff said.

7.) Do you prefer dogs or cats?

Dogs, ofcourse, man's/woman's best friend.

8.) What is the meaning behind your blog name?

It's pretty self explanatory. I'm a girl who's unpublished. I thought it seemed edgier, though, to add the comma like in 'Girl, Interrupted'.

So, that's it! Those are the eight questions you'll use if you so choose to participate in this incredibly random little tag!

Until next time, write on!

  1. Hello Jessica. Yeah, I knew that, you had to be a Girl, Interrupted fan to give yourself your blog name. Love it. Only you won't be unpublished for long, so what are you going to call yourself then?? Lady, Published?

    Enough of that. Loved your response to the tag. I came across as I've joined in the crusade, too late to enter the first challenge, but I've been reading/voting.

    I have followed you here and on twitter. Hope you'll pop over to meet me and do the same.
