By now you know the deal. It’s Friday, which means I’m renting out this space to other writers who you should stalk so that I don’t look creepy doing it alone. Today we have someone I consider to be “Twitter Elite.”
What do I mean?
I mean she has more than 11,000 followers on Twitter. Yes, 11,000. I don’t have 11,000 of anything, other than possibly blog post drafts I’ve deleted or brilliant ideas that go down the shower drain the second I turn off the water.
Anyway, that number is impressive and well-deserved. Here’s Kate!
Name: Kate Hall
Blog: Can I Get Another Bottle of Whine?
Where, what and why do you write?
I write (mostly) humor in the form of blog posts, tweets and memes. I guess I write to make people laugh and to keep myself sane. It’s probably healthier to say, “I’m going to blog or tweet about this,” than to get mad about. Although typically I still get mad, but it still makes for a good post/tweet. I try to write posts that are honest and funny that people can connect with. I just ended that sentence with a preposition, but I don’t know how to fix it.
Anyway, I write wherever I can find a place to sit with a notepad. It’s pretty random – in bed, at Barnes & Noble, at the park, in the car, etc. – occasionally at the computer.
First thing you think of when you wake up in the morning.
I wonder if I have any Twitter or Facebook notifications on my phone?
What’s the one “issue” or frustration annoying you the most right now?
Where to eat out for dinner. That was an issue the night I first answered this question, but not anymore. We ate Mexican food and had big margaritas. I forgot about that issue.
Three websites you visit every day.
Twitter, Facebook, my weather app on my phone. Does that count as a website?
What’s an unusual talent and/or accomplishment you could never put on a resume?
Blowing bubbles off my tongue and juggling. I’ve vlogged myself doing both.
Favorite place to be?
Outside on a warm beach, sitting under a canopy of palm trees swaying in a soft breeze while I listen to the waves roll off the ocean and sip frozen raspberry margaritas. There, or in bed watching Netflix.
If you could rule the land for one day, what laws would you create and enforce?
Everybody should watch Netflix. It’s made my life calmer and more pleasant. I’m a happier person thanks to Netflix. It’s how I escape. Escapism is pretty awesome.
What TV show would you want to appear on?
That Wipeout show where the contestants run through the obstacle courses. That show makes me laugh out loud. I’d love to try it. I’d suck at it, but it would be fun.
Best and worst things I could find in your refrigerator right now?
Best: Strawberry margarita in a bottle.
Worst: Tomatoes that were overripe and were being attacked by fruit flies, so I put them in the fridge while I was gone over the weekend and now they’re even more disgusting and I should have just thrown them in the trash, but they were from my garden and I didn’t want to throw away something I grew because things I grow are like my “precious”…ya know?
What question do you wish I had asked you and what would be your reply?
You could ask: Do you have anything new you’re working on? Why yes, I do, Abby, thank you for asking.
I’m revamping my blogs so that I will have a landing page for everything I write/do. It will link to my three blogs: My humor blog (CanIGetAnotherBottleofWhine.com), my gardening with humor blog (currently at katewhinehall.wordpress.com, soon to be ITrytoGrowStuff.com), and a blog devoted to Twitter (soon to be BottleofTweets.com). All humor blogs, but with different foci. Is foci a word? I’m hoping to have this set up in the next week or so.
Your turn to play along. Since she’s the Twitter queen and Twitter is all about brevity, sum up your week in six words or less.
