Bits 'n Pieces - Elizabeth Scott

Elizabeth Scott is the author of Bloom, Perfect You, Stealing Heaven, and Living Dead Girl, which was released yesterday! You can explore Elizabeth's website by clicking here. Her newest book Something, Maybe is set to be released in March, 2009.  You can find my review of Stealing Heaven here, and Perfect You here.  Elizabeth is a wonderful author and she provided some awesome answers to my questions. Enjoy!

This or that: 
Rain or shine?
iPod or mp3 player? 
Movies or TV? 
City or country?
Mountains or beaches? 
Dots or stripes?
frogs. (I once knew a lady who had a pair of frog print pants. They were fascinating -- and also kind of terrifying)
Dogs or cats? 
Cooking or eating out? 
Coffee or tea? 
Books or magazines? 

ah ha ha! Like I can pick just one.
Book store- 
whatever one I happen to be in at the time.
just one? you're killing me here!
Music artist- 
I tend to like individual songs more than anything else
ohnotheydidnt (you may be above celebrity gossip. I am not!)
on a writer's salary? Target.
Coffee chain- 
whatever serves water
Guilty pleasure- 
anything that doesn't put an e on the end to make itself look quainte

Have you ever:
Lived abroad? 
Gotten a tattoo? 
nope. Why? Have you ever seen a saggy tattoo? I have. My eyes STILL burn.
Stayed up for the midnight release of a movie or book? 
Disliked your job? 
Cried during a movie?
Sang karaoke? 

If you were on a desert island, what 5 things would you bring with
books, my husband, my dog, food, and water. Oh, and sunscreen,
so there would be at least a brief window of time where I didn't
look like a lobster.
What’s on the list of things you have to do during your life? 
own a car that isn't a stick shift (it doesn't sound like a big deal but
so far, this one thing has eluded me for about twenty years. (!))
If you could have one super power what would it be? 
putting more hours in the day
What’s your perfect music playlist? 
anything that makes me want to sing
What’s the one food you could eat day after day and not get sick of? 
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
What moment in history do you wish you could’ve experienced? 
I'd like to have seen one of Marlowe's plays performed during his lifetime.
What does your dream library look like? 
Sadly, my house
When you walk into a bookstore, where do you head first? 
YA! And then new releases.
If everyone had to read one book, what would you have it be?
Possession by A. S. Byatt
