A Little Bit of Random

Photograph by Julia King 2009 (Cinque Terre)
Gina Denny recently beta'd my WIP. I'd like to thank her lots and lots for her amazing suggestions. Kristin Lynn Thetford did as well. She's the grammar girl of all grammar girls. Loved having her help in that area. Thank you girls!
I'll admit I'm stealing this blog idea from one of Gina's blog posts. I'm going to fill in the following blanks, so you can get to know me a bit better.

I am ... not a morning person. If I could, I'd sleep in until 10:30AM every day. Uh... or longer.

I can't stand ... ticking clocks or any repetitive noises. *cringe*

My idea of relaxation would be ... laying out on a beach (more specifically, a beach on the Cinque Terre on the Italian Riviera) reading a book and catching some rays. *sigh*

If I had an extra $50, I would ...  buy a couple books or a couple shirts. Maybe buy something good to eat. There are so many options. Maybe you can decide for me. :)

A recipe I'm dying to try is ... I don't really cook much and if I do, it's just throwing stuff together to see if it tastes good. But, the recipe I love to make is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies. Numms. But I can't make them right now because I'm still going strong with my no sweets diet. Woot!

Well, now it's your turn to fill in these blanks, so I can get to know you better. Comment away, folks!

Writing. Jewels.


  1. I used to be a real lie-in person, but since living with children I just can't do it any more! Sigh. I even get a sore back if I ever have the chance to lie in now. Just this week, I started getting up at 4am to write because I might be getting a day job soon and I don't like doing it last thing at night... you get perfect quiet anyway!!

    1. I wish I could wake up early to write. Early morning hours are definitely peaceful. Good for you, Nick! I don't have kids yet. I can see how kids will change my sleeping in habits. A lot!

  2. Oo, I'll play! :)

    I am... not a morning person, either.

    I can't stand... hypocrisy.

    My idea of relaxation would be... reading during a thunderstorm.

    If I had an extra $50, I would... save it for my next student loan payment. Sad, but true.

    A recipe I'm dying to try is... Ranch House Crock Pot Pork Chops. What can I say? Thank you, Pinterest! *Grins*

    1. I love the sound of thunder. Ahhhh! I should put that extra $50 to student loans, too. Ugh! I hate them.

      Have a great day!

  3. I love sleeping in too. And your pumpkin chocolate chip cookies sound amazing! I love pumpkin in anything. Share the recipe! :)

    1. You're my kind of person. Lover of pumpkin! I actually have a blog post with the recipe on it.


      I love those cookies. The trick is to add butterscotch chips. Mmmmm!

  4. I am so happy that my grammar critique helped, Julia! You are amazingly sweet to mention me in your post. :) I loved getting the chance to beta read your WIP for you!

    This is a fun post. I loved learning a little more about you. And I am totally with you on that whole I-am-not-a-morning-person thing. I would much rather stay up late than get up early. :D

    Also, pumpkin and chocolate is an irresistible combination. YUM!
