catching up & a new interview question

I've had a lot going on lately and the blog's been a tad dormant the past couple weeks. So sorry for that! I miss reading and responding to comments and I'm eager to get back to it.

So I want to kick this off with a new question! I loved the responses to the 'Title Your Life' post and can't wait to see what you come up with for this one:

If you were a character in a book, would you rather be a memorable bad girl/boy, or an unremarkable good girl/boy?

I've thought on this one ever since I posed it during the blogger interview I hosted for BBAW. For some reason, I keep thinking of whether I would rather be Sookie or Pam from the Sookie Stackhouse Series. Hmm... Bill Compton is a great bonus to being Sookie, but Pam has such great one liners, a cool exterior, AND is part owner of Fangtasia (which is just an awesome name). I might be leaning toward Pam here. I guess it's memorable bad girl for me after all! ;-P

And what about you?

Title your life

Recently, I conducted an interview with a book blogger as part of BBAW. That interview is here.

I worked really hard to come up with interesting, fun questions for it and was pretty happy with the questions I posed. In fact, I liked them so much, I would love to hear what all of you have to say in response to them. So I will be working on a series where I 'interview' you!

First up:
If you were writing a book about your life, what would the title be?

This is tough for me. I come up with titles for things all the time! I come up with chapter titles for memorable encounters, titles for groups of short stories, and even captions for pictures.

There are so many stories that represent a variety of different points in my life. But the one that I keep coming back to is a book I would like to title: I Was a 25-Year-Old Sorority Girl.

And what would yours be?
