What did you have for breakfast today?
I do best when I have a big hit of protein in the morning and my biggest go-to breakfast is eggs. This morning, I wilted a bunch of spinach in coconut oil then added an egg scrambled with an additional egg white. It’s not really an omelet, not even a scramble…more like a mangle. It’s not pretty but it’s tasty.
Go-to karaoke song?
Ha! I don’t have the best voice, but I’m not proud. My singing voice is a little low so I’ve been known to plumb some southern rock greats, like The Allman Brothers’ “Ramblin’ Man” or “Amie” by Pure Prairie League. The last time I sang karaoke was with my good friend and fellow author Jami Alden (whose voice is about a zillion times better than mine) and we did a rendition of “You’re the One That I Want” from the Grease soundtrack. I sang John Travolta’s part. It was…uh…something to behold.
Favorite snack food?
It depends on where I am. My favorite snack food for road trips is definitely a bag of Doritos (the classic red bag, natch). And don’t get me started on Double-Stuf Oreos. But if it’s a work day, I have to snack on protein-rich things or I collapse instantly into a nap so most days I’ll just have a fistful of cashews or some peanut butter on celery.
Guilty pleasure TV show?
Let’s get one thing straight: I feel no guilt about my TV! It’s all for work, right? All in the name of storytelling, right?! My family would say the thing that should cause me the most guilt is my Vampire Diaries obsession. But I say, far from being a guilty pleasure, The Vampire Diaries is actually a study in brilliant, deep plotting. And I’m actually not even close to kidding.
Song that will get people dancing at my wedding reception?
“Get Lucky” by Daft Punk—NO QUESTION. Such an awesome song! (And, by the way, you are lucky…the big song when I got married was “Macarena.”)
Thanks again for having me today! I hope people enjoy the latest installment in Drew’s story.
Thanks again to Veronica for stopping by! And hey, if you have wedding reception song suggestions, I’ll take ‘em in the comments!
