Teaser Tuesday (6/29/2010)

Spread the word

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

# Grab your current read.

# Let the book fall open to a random page.

# Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

# You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given! # Please avoid spoilers!

My Two Teasers:

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

“Dear God,” she prayed, “let me be something every minute of every hour of my life. Let me be gay; let me be sad.”

Can I just take a moment to say how much I adore this book? I’m taking that moment…

I was tagged by Jen from Devourer of Books for this fun little “getting to know you” meme.

What is your favorite word?

For a while I used to subscribe to Dictionary.com’s word of the day, and they would always send me words that I could never find a way to easily slip into daily use, so most of those words fell into my favorites category, mostly because they are outdated and fun to say.

Brobdiganean is the number one favorite. It means “huge”

Lackadaisical is second runner up.

What is your least favorite word?

I’m not fond of swear words. I don’t use them, and I think that more creative words can be used in their place.

What turns you on (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?

Being outdoors, whether its a park, hiking in the woods, or being lazy at the beach. Also snuggling up on the couch with a glass of wine with the boyfriend.

What turns you off (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?

Selfishness, greed. Parents misusing their children’s library cards…

What sound or noise do you love?

My guinea pig wheeking for food. My guinea pig eating food (she chews really loudly, its really cute).

What sound or noise do you hate?

Dogs barking, it always makes me jumpy. I hate car horns, when used inappropriately. I hate it when the latex balloon pops.

What is your favorite curse word?

I use damn a lot. But my friends debate if that is considered a swear word or not.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

I would like to be a professional baker. Open up my own bakery/reading room.

What profession would you not like to do?

Anything involving customer service in a retail store.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

Your dad is right over there. Go say hi.  —–>

Now it is your turn!
