About Me featuring Shannon M.

Our next wonderful DIK lady is Shannon!

Shannon lives in Chicago where, when she's not busy with teacher stuff (haha), she spends way too much time reading and thinking about cooking. She says she doesn't actually do much real cooking these days, but boy does she think about it! Now that summer vacation has begun she'll start doing more cooking, and TONS more reading. Shannon also believes that should Dwayne Johnson even meet her he would agree that she is perfect and swoop her up in those amazing arms of his. (of course he would...just look at them!)

Favorite Reading Position
snuggled up criss-cross legs on my big purple arm chair with the pup on one side and the cat on my legs

Best love song
I Want to Grow Old With You by Adam Sandler (The Wedding Singer)

If you could be in one book/series/world which would you pick
For the utter manliness, the BDB world. For the cool things I could do, the Harry Potter world.

Author everyone loves but you don't
Laurell K. Hamilton

How old is your inside voice
13 years old, and I swear it is male. I still laugh at dumb jokes.

Favorite sex song
Closer by NIN

What heroine would you like to be
Mercedes Thompson

Boxers, Briefs, boxer briefs, kilt (I say we add commando)
boxers. It's a classic look.

What heroine is most like you
Jane Gregg from "See Jane Date" (While more of a "Chick Lit" novel than romance, I could completely identify with Jane when I read it: late 20's, single, great supportive friends, living in a big city, going on a string of bad dates, determinedly optimistic. Now I feel as though I am Jane a few years older.)

What hero would you like to be your significant other
Make him straight, and I want Jules Cassidy.

If you were stuck on a desert island what 3 things would you bring
books, sunscreen, and chocolate

Favorite drink to bring to the DIK party
Hazelnut Kahlua and cream

*gapes at Shannon*
Ahem.

I have TONs of cookbook, but I cannot cook worth...anything. Horray to summer vacations!

Sarah said...

NIN and Mercedes Thompson, excellent!

Ana said...

Gosh, we are such dorks. I chose to be in the Harry Potter world too. LOL.

Abd I love to cook. We should start exchanging recipes.

I'm with you with the Hamilton wonder? WHy does everyone think she kicks ass? I disliked even the early AB's.

I don't understand.....

Shannon said...

little alys- Come on, admit it! Jules is wonderful. His only flaw is that he would not find me attractive (lack of penis and all that). He's hot, sweet, passionate, super smart, brave, fashionable, funny, loyal... the list keeps going. :)

Ana- I do have a bunch of recipes on my other blog. They are all gluten free, though. We just made the most amazing turkey burgers last night with shredded zuccini and carrots. Yum!

Naida- Thatnks! There is something so sweet about that song. Makes me sigh every time I hear it.

Tracy said...

Ok - I love that Adam Sandler song...in a dorky 80's kind of way! :)

I love looking in cookbooks...I just bake instead of cook.

Shannon said...

Cooking or baking, I love it all. I currently have a Blueberry Cardamom Coffeecake in the oven. We shall see hoe it turns out. Gluten free baking is always a bit hit or miss.

LesleyW said...

Is anyone keeping track of how many votes Mercy Thompson gets as heroine we would most like to be. She seems to be a popular choice.

LOL - three guesses who I picked.

Sarai said...

I love to cook too! But lack the motivation *g*
Thats it I'm going to youtube to check out NIN

Katie(babs) said...

Why Shannon we have the same sexin music in common. :D

Shannon said...

Katie- I'm starting to think that you and I are actually twins seperated at birth. OK sure, our bithdays are a month apart, but you know... it could have been a really long labor.

MaryKate said...

Niiice! Shannon, I would never have thought of Jules. Of course, I haven't read her last two, since I won't pay HC prices for her.

Also, I love the Mercy Thompson as a choice too! Adam Hauptman is one of my favorite heroes. As you know....;oD

Katie Reus said...

(Sorry I'm late commenting, I've been out of town.)

Aww, I love that song from The Wedding Singer!!

Carolyn Jean said...

Great answers! Mercedes Thompson is a good pick, too.

Ciara said...

Tisk. First Adam, and now Mercy. Seriously. BACK OFF LADY! Mercy is MINE. Don't make me come back to Chicago to steal her back!

Christine said...

Mercedes Thompson is an awesome pick! I think I may have sent in my answers to this poll before I read Moon Called. I may have to resubmit...

Samantha Kane said...

I am so behind here. Sorry! But I love Adam Sandler. Love. Him. We need to do a blog on funny guys we think are sexy. Hmm. . .
