1. Tea or coffee?
Tea forever!

2. What is your station in life?

Vampire Queen

3. Is space the final frontier?
No, it is the Undiscovered Country.
4. Books with or without pictures?
5. Define: Steampunk, in five action words?
BBC drama meets Hot Topic.
6. Why can’t 3+3 just equal 33?
Because that would throw off the state of the universe.
7. You must play mother and pour the tea but you are gloveless whatever will you do?
Trick question. A lady never sits down to eat with her gloves on!
8. Candy cane or fancy stick?
Fancy stick!

9. What compels you to write? (answer must use words from your answers from Q3, 6, and 7)
A state of insanity mixed with fear of it. You know… it.10. Please ask me a question.
Vanilla or chocolate ice-cream on a sugar or plain cone? (No deviations! You must chose only from the options provided. Ice cream is high quality. Dietary restrictive substitutions are available.)
Oh no! You can’t make me. I, well I, um…I hate ice-cream. It’s so bland, if it was a colour it’d be magnolia. But there is something soothing and almost smothering about both ice-cream and magnolia that it can restore one. So, if pressed and hot and bothered – I’d chose chocolate ice-cream on a pain cone.
Thank you, Gail.
