Tagged by Bethany

So, this is my first tag, hope I didn't mess it up.

Do you like to write? Y-E-S

Favorite books? The Bible, obviously, but after that comes Tolkien's books, anything by Ted Dekker or Frank Peretti, most of R.A. Salvador's books, and nearly all of Garth Nix's books as well.

Do you compose music/write songs? Only a little, mostly, I play traditional Irish tunes. I do combine them to create sets however, does that count?

Do you like poetry? Meh, only Shakespeare

Love someone so much who made you cry? Aye

Broken a bone? Nope, I think I have strong bones, cause I once fell out of our barn loft (20+ feet) onto cement and was completely fine, didn't even roll properly

Been in a police car? Oh yeah! I have SHOT a police car. Long story, but the gist of it is, my Dad used to own a paintball arena, and the police came there to train (proud to say I got to yell "Allah Akbar!" and whoop their butts) and one day the door they entered for for the simulation got left open and I hit a squad car parked outside.

Been on a boat? Aye, ferries, canoes, pontoon boats, hopefully a sailboat soon.

Fallen asleep in school? If you cound dozing off while writing, yes.

Did you sing today? Not yet, but I plan to finish memorizing Hey Johnnie Cope later today.

KFC, Popeyes or Church's? KFC

Chick-fil-a or What-a-burger? the author came from another part of the country I think ;) (I wanted to remove this one, but refrained because I was afraid of being struck by lightning for messing up the tag)

Starbucks or McCafe? Starbucks....Hate anything afiliated with McDonalds

What's your favorite time of year? Fall/Winter, I seem to handle cold better than heat, although I like the critters that come with summer.

Do you ever talk to yourself? What? I never talk to myself do I? "Certainly not, that would be silly!"

Do you have a favorite treat you like to buy on occasion? The question is, is there a treat I do not buy on occasion. Top O 'th list is Jerky, (Venison) salted pork, lemonheads, sassafras boiled sweets, dark chocolate peppermint bark, buckeye balls, and raggedy robins.

Do you believe the Bible is the literal Word of God and is infallible? YES

What's your favorite sport? Uh, traditional or non-traditional? I like playing softball with friends every now and then, but I really prefer swordfighting, archery and hunting. Capture the Flag is fun too.

Are you a people person? Meh, people are overrated

Who are you going to tag and why? Gracie, because she reads my blog more than anyone
Death the Criftonite, because I wish to know what he fears (aside from bagpipes and me)
Kendra, because she is an interesting person.
