DAY 19. – A favourite author
I swear I was going to do this post yesterday but out of nowhere my mom decided that she had to make a dessert that involved warming cherries in red wine and then flambéing them with some other 40% liquor. After that, I was kinda tipsy and I thought that it wouldn’t be the best thing if I would keep writing because it would either turn out really bad or really inappropriate.
While on the subject, those who know me know that I rarely drink and never have been really drunk. And, to be honest, I don’t see why people would want to get absolutely hammered. I just can’t get past that tipsy stage when you’re just feeling dizzy and light headed. As soon as that hits I just want it to go away. I guess I’m also too practical to allow myself to be drunk. I’m always concerned with getting home and being safe and I’d not want my judgement to be clouded. Other than that, I don’t like the taste of alcohol. I rather have something to drink that I can take a few good swallows of instead of having to sip. No.. no drunkenness for me.
Anyway.. back to why we are here. I’m supposed to name my favourite author. That’s impossible. I mean, there are so many awesome books and writers, I can’t possibly choose one. Those who read my blog somewhat regularly will not be surprised by this list as I talk about them all the time. =P But these are my favourite authors:
1. J.K. Rowling
2. Stephen King
3. Jodi Picoult
4. Jim Butcher
Yea, that’s about it. Those are the big 4. These four writers have pretty much everything that I need in the world. Apart from air and sustenance. Yea, you got your Teen angsty magic school with awesome adventures with wands. Then, there’s the ultimate mater of Horror. Next there is the one who writes about important social issues that appeal to me as a pedagogue and finally there’s the awesome fantasy/mystery writer who created Harry Dresden who saves the world at least twice a year. Need I say more?
