Writer's Block: Historian's Choice

If you could live in any era of history, which one would you choose?
Actually while I do enjoy writing about the past and researching it, I wouldnt want to live in any other era. So spoiled am I that I wouldnt be able to handle the past. People were so much more responsible, and girls were so badly treated. 

All in all, I love reading about it, I love researching it, and I love roleplaying in every other time zone.

Writer's Block: Supermarket Grabfest

You have three minutes to grab everything you can from a supermarket. Which items do you go for?
Oh this is an interesting question! I like it because one of my favorite topics is food. (of course) Its really obvious to people that I would head straight for snacks. But thats not the case, I love fruit. Deceiving as it may seem, I love picking out fruits especially. Its a natural talent of mine hah ha. I dont want to seem obsessive by going into detail, but by the time those 3 minutes were over  I think hat my basket would be full of mangoes, raspberries, and some avacadoes. Mer I love avacodoes so dont give me grief on it. 

Just a little Chat sequence from March 23.
