The Book Tart Quickie


1. Can you juggle?
No, but I can touch my tongue to my nose

my mum can do that too!

2. Have you ever been to Legoland?

Kind of! This summer we hit the LegoLand Discovery Center in Kansas City while we were visiting family. The Discovery Centers aren’t quite as big as the full LegoLand but we did get to ride some rides and make our own mini-figs.

Jealous! I LOVE rides AND legos.

3. What’s the last thing you took a picture of?

My nails! bebe and I did a mommy-daughter manicure last week and I took some pics


4. What type of music do you like?

depends on my mood…lately it’s all country all the time, but if you looked at my iPod you’d find pop, 80s, oldies, country, contemporary christian and a LOT of Christmas music!

I adore holiday music too.

5. What’s your favorite clean word?

Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious. Because who can’t be upset when saying that word??

even though the sound

of it is something quite atrocious!

if you say it loud enough… 😀

6. What was the last film you saw?

RadioMan and I saw Sex Tape a few weeks ago – so funny!


7. What’s the most unusual conversation you’ve ever had?

I’m a writer with writer friends so my conversations do get…weird. But the oddest recent conversation I had was with bebe and it centered around the real-ness of fairies, good witches and magicians.


8. Have you got green fingers?

No. I try with my container gardens but my plants are lucky to last the summer…

Me too! *fist bump*

Non green thumbs unite! 😛

9. Have you ever licked a battery?

Ha! I have! Over the summer the battery in my iPad keyboard seemed to be running down constantly so when I couldn’t get the thing to turn on after just switching, I licked the battery. It was dead.


10.  (OOPS!) ummmm I meant to leave out 10…. it’s disappearance IS the question. 😀


 Me: *Snork* You are a darling dear for playing with me! Even though I spaced and forgot to give you a quickie tenth question. *head/desk* It was on purpose. 😛

Thank you for indulging my curiosity and for hanging out with me here in Tartlandia! I would adore having you back for a longer visit for your next book… or just cause! 😉


Kristina: Thanks so much for having me over, Kat! I’d love to come back – you’re so much fun!!


*smishes* Kat

  1. thanks for sharing! Congrats to Kristina on the new release!!! Thanks for sharing! Ummm… the last pic I took was of my dog’s bee sting 🙁

  2. Most unusual conversation lately. I was in a Chinese bar lounge and had to run to the bathroom and had a woman chasing behind me who had to go. I said you can go first since she looked like she was going to pee her pants. She talked to me came out with her pants still down so I could use bathroom. Talked to me the whole time (talk about pressure), the toilet flushing was not good but she offered to help which I handled and mentioned I had the same problem at a CFB the day before. Then I got a visual performance of how to stuff a flask in my bra…twice as she followed me to my table and showed my friends too. Very interesting and memorable.
