Friday Fresh!

I finished up a first round of revisions this week on my next book, The ABC's of Kissing Boys.

As the title suggests, each of the 26 chapters offers an
alphabetical kissing tip, so when I logged onto MySpace the other
day and saw an ABC's Meme, I decided it might be fun to play with it--here.

I'd edited the questions down to a YA FRESH specific anagram, and hope you'll play, too:

Y is for yummy food you ate today?

cake with butter cream frosting

A is for age?
Uh, over 30

F is for favorite TV show at the moment?

R is for biggest regret?
that I don't stop eating when I'm full

E is for essential item you use everyday?
my car

S is for status?

H is for home town?
Well...I was born in a suburb of Boston, spent several
years in Los Angeles, and then in Westchester County, New York. So, you pick! :)

Who else wants to play? Answer all YA FRESH questions or just the ones of your choice!

Kelly, I've never heard of Moonlight. Would you tell us a little about it?

Erica, your DH is a chef??? Lucky you!

Erin, I LOVE homemade meatballs.

Janie, I never knew you longed for more kids...see, you learn something from these things!

Erica Orloff said...

That's the only thing that saves my children from starvation. I don't cook. At. All.

Erica, you are talking to a kindred spirit. I cook, but only because I have to. I'm soooo much happier at a screen than a stove.
