Muse/Character Blog Hop: The Faux Fountain Pen Blog-aversary Party!
+Sarah Foster is having a party today. She invited me and said I could bring a friend, so I'm bringing Patricia O'Neill, a main character in Going Through the Change: A Menopausal Superhero Novel. I don't get out much, so forgive me any social faux pas, please.
1. Who is your muse (or character)? Tell us a little bit about him/her and why you brought them.
She says I need to get out more, too. Selling books is not a game for introverts, after all. (Sigh) She's probably right.
2. What are you guys wearing? Dressing up or keeping it casual?
Patricia is rocking a new Dolce&Gabbana suit. She was really annoyed when that incident at the coffee shop last month destroyed her favorite Armani jacket, but was thrilled to find this suit to replace it. She really likes how slim fitting pants are coming back in. They let her show off her hours in the gym. She's in amazing shape for a woman of any age. (Don't tell anyone, but she's almost sixty!)
Me? Well I was just going to wear my usual sarcastic teeshirt, jeans, and Converse, but Patricia insisted on dressing me up. So, I've got this sundress. It was a compromise. She wanted me to wear a power-suit like her, but I convinced her that they just aren't the same on short-ish, round-ish women like me. I'd be fine in the dress if it weren't for the heels. I'm trying not to move around too much. I already fell twice since we got here, and I haven't even had a drink yet. I miss my Converse.
3. It's a potluck! Did you bring something yummy?
Patricia doesn't cook, but she picked up a nice bottle of wine. She said you should let it breathe a little while before serving it.
4. Open bar! What are you both drinking (booze or otherwise)?
Patricia got stuck on martinis in her boardroom days. You'd better let her just make it herself. She's particular. Do you have any hard cider? I never developed a taste for beer, and I'm a total lightweight when it comes to cocktails.
5. Wallflowers or social butterflies?
I'm a wallflower by nature, but that's part of why I brought Patricia. She really knows how to work a room and she promised to help me network and not look like such a dork.
6. What song(s) will you and your muse sing for karaoke?
I love to sing! Patricia and I were singing a mean version of I Will Survive in the car on the way over. I'll see if I can talk her into performing with me for you all.
7. What's your favorite party game?
Have you ever played JS Joust? It's a lot of fun, and always gets me giggling.
What's that, Patricia?
Oh yeah…the shoes. I'd totally fall on my face. Let's see…are we too old for charades? Or never-have-I-ever? Truth or dare? Let's go for it!
8. Which one of you is more likely to end up dancing on a table top?
Oh dear Lord, I hope neither of us! This drink isn't that strong is it?
9. Has your muse been a good date and would you ever hang out with them again?
I'd hang out with Patricia anytime (I'm almost done with the sequel and she's amazing in it!), but I think she found me a little boring. Still, if she invites me, you know I'll be there! Thanks for having us. It's good to get out and it can be hard to find a party that lets you bring your imaginary friends.
