Now, onto my post of the day . . .

    I had the pleasure of interviewing Adrian from
 Maniacal Mind.  She's AWESOME and wonderful.  If you don't know her, please visit her blog--you'll love it!
The Interview

What is your favorite thing about Christmas?
    Decorating! I have 3 Christmas trees (all pink) and I love putting up the trees and listening to Christmas music.  

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
    I wanted to be a pediatrician until I turned 7 and learned that I'm afraid of vomit (one of my 25 fears) and children like to vomit.  Then I wanted to be a lawyer, then I wanted to be a puppeteer like Jim Henson, then I wanted to  marry a rich man, then I wanted to be a movie director.  Now I think I want to be a college professor.

Do you have a favorite fruit?  Why is it your favorite?
    I do not have a favorite fruit because I HATE FRUIT! Fruit is also on my 25 fears.  It smells funny, it all has a weird slimy texture, and it is awkward to eat.  Just typing this gives me the heebie jeebies!!! 
    If I did eat fruit, I'd probably like Granny Smith Apples.  

If you could be any superhero, who would you be?
    I used to want to be HeMan, only because I thought Castle Dungeon would be a COOL place to live :-)

If you could marry ANY famous movie star, who would you pick?
    Jay Kay from Jamiroquai.  We'd be the odd couple, but he's been my fantasy man for 15 years!! 

What's the most important thing you've learned in life?
    That what I thought was the most important thing, really wasn't.  Life is ever changing as is the earth.  Open your heart to accepting that what you think is important will change.....often.   

Do you have any advice for other bloggers?
   Yes, my advice is when they hear solid advice, forward it to:

Turkey or mashed potatoes and gravy?
    Mashed potatoes and gravy with a tiny piece of turkey hidden under neath! It's like a happy little surprise :-)  

Are elves underrated?  Should Santa really be getting all the credit?

    Elves deserve WAY MORE credit than they get.
    Lets face the facts; they work long hours with little pay, they make help make Christmas possible for millions of deserving boys and girls, and the big fat man gets all of the credit!!! What kind of mess is that??
    I'd strike for better wedges if I were an elf. I'm sure they are union workers, but still!  Not to mention Santa may be a hard boss to work for!   

What are you hoping to get for Christmas?
    Hummm.....I want to much for Christmas.  Lets see:
   Continued health for my family. 
   I want my friends who are unemployed to get jobs.
   A new convertible Beatle.
   Some TV boxsets (I love classic television shows)

Tell us about yourself:
    I think my blog sums it up best!
Maniacal Mind

Thanks for joining us!  That was so fun.


  1. Pat likes talking in the third person too. Drazin comes along, so Drazin can have Drazin's say as well...haha

    Great interview too. Pink christmas trees I never knew, 25 fears, Monk had more. Sorry Maniacal Mind, you're still beat..hahaha

  2. That WAS fun! And thanks for the (almost) giveaways. I think Adrian sound like a hoot! I'll go visit her now... :-)

  3. Yay! I'm getting the ebook today! I must hurry and share this with everyone...:)

  4. Fun interview with Adrian.

    Fear of fruit? Hmm, that sounds like a viable target for neat practical jokes if she had a brother like yours Elisa.

  5. Afraid of fruit?! LOL But the way should put it...it kind of does sound scary. hahaha

  6. Three pink trees! My daughter would love to live in your house. I'm so behind I haven't even set up our boring green tree yet.

    As for the $0.99 sale, bring it on! I'm fb and tweeting that for sure!

  7. I started reading your book last night (the first e-book I've ever read (apart from the first chapter of The Doctor's Lady the other day) and it is fantastic. I can't wait to finish it tonight and I love how the screen is not as bright as I imagined, it's really nice to read while you're stuck trying to get your kids to sleep. I can't wait to finish and review it everywhere for you.

    And I love Jay Kay, been to see him in UK when I was at Uni (way back) Jamiroquai is awesome!

  8. Dear Elisa,
    What a wonderful gift you are giving us--a truly BIG discount on the e-book. I don't have a Kindle or e-book reader, but when I do get one--next year--yours is one of the first books I'll download. (No matter what the price.)


  9. Fantastic interview! I love seeing the way other writers go about their writing. And 99 cents? My you are generous :)

  10. I have a friend who takes an epiphany every day in the springtime. It's a little pill her doctor prescribed for her hay fever. Oh, wait--that's ephedrine. Never mind.

    I hope the fat man in the red suit brings your kids lots of toys (made by his overworked elves) this Christmas!

  11. Love the interview with Adrian. She sounds like a real hoot. :-) Also love the idea of a pink Christmas tree. I think it would be awesome if it were placed in my favorite part of our home and customized with everything girly, such as high heel ornaments, Victoria Secret gift cards (to me!), angels, lipstick ornaments, diamonds and lace,...ya know...stuff like that. I'll have to keep that in mind for later on when we have a house big enough to include my own personalized pink tree in it somewhere. :-)


  12. I can so relate to the fruit thing! :)

  13. Great post! I am going to check out her blog right now!

  14. I am getting the Fire from my Mom for Christmas, and the first book I download will be yours. Promise. :)

    Actually, I can't wait. I'm surprized I haven't jumped the gun already.

  15. I was so excited to see that your book was on sale for eReaders! I absolutely LOVE my eReader, and I just bought my copy! YAY! So happy that your book is turning into such a success! Wishing you continued success!

    Smiles, Jenn
