One of my writer friends, Janelle, suggested on her blog that we let one of our characters answer the following Meme questions. This should allow us to see how well we really know him, and lets us get a better feel for his thoughts, his voice, etc... so I'm up to the challenge.

From my wip ms The Pole Gallery

WHO ARE YOU? (A Character Meme -- By Splat)

1.) What are your nicknames?
Splat, I know, it doesn’t fit me at all, but I didn’t give it to me.

2.) What game show and/or reality show would you like to be on?
I’m not the game show type cause you never really know what’s going on

3.) What was the first movie you bought on VHS or DVD?
I never bought one but I’d like to get a copy of Underdog

4.) What is your favorite scent?
Peanut butter and jelly

5.) If you had a million dollars that you could only spend on yourself, what would you do with it?
I’d buy Char something and buy Mr. Rival a plane ticket…

6.) What one place have you visited that you can’t forget, and want to go back to?
I’ve never left Newhillville, but the IGA sells donuts on Sundays.

7.) Do you trust easily?
Yes. Everyone in Newhillville follow the rules

8.) Do you generally think before you act, or act before you think?
Everyone thinks before they act. I think before I act. Even if Mr. Rival doesn’t think so

9.) Is there anything that has made you unhappy these days?
Mr. Rival!!

10.) Do you have a good body image?
I’m sort of skinny

11.) What is your favorite fruit?.
Bananas, but I bet that is everyone’s, except Ms Morehead, she probably only eats apples

12.) What websites do you visit daily?
We are probably the only family in Newhillville that doesn’t own a computer. My dad says it will melt our brains

13.) What have you been seriously addicted to lately?
Mostly, I do the same thing every day so I never really get addicted to it, though I do like to try to stump Char by asking her to guess the capitals of states

14.) What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
Someone who wrote me

15.) What’s the last song that got stuck in your head?
That country song about riding the horse, I don’t really know the words that well

16.) What’s your favorite item of clothing?
I just wear whatever is in my drawer and that is mostly jeans and t-shirts. I don’t own anything special

17.) Do you think Rice Krispies are yummy?
I don’t think they sell rice Krispies in Newhillville. I think because they might be rambunctious.

18.) What would you do if you saw $100 lying on the ground?
Take it into the IGA and give it to the manager.

19.) What items could you not go without during the day?
My shoes so my feet don’t get tired

20.) What should you be doing right now?
Well Ms Morehead would like it if I read, my dad wants me to learn to mow the lawn, but I really should be trying to figure out how to get everyone out of trouble.

Love it, Ian! I can see Splat through his answers! Not sure I'd want to live in his little town, though. Sounds like, unless this kid is an absolute lyer -- which he may be :) -- "everyone follows the rules."
V e e e ry Interesting!
