A Meme to Take You Away
Or…The Dragon invites you to an imaginary place…

To participate in a meme, you merely answer the questions on your own blog, (and go ahead and post a comment here stating that you've done so!) and tag five to 10 blog owners that you'd like to have play along with us. The idea is to get lots of folks connected and "playing along" to increase our awareness of each other (and to have fun). When you post your answers on your blog, be sure to list the blogs that have participated so far so we increase our presence in the blogosphere.

In honor of spring break and all things travel-oriented, here we go!

Getting Away With It
1) If you could live for a month in one world or time period from a novel you've read, which would you choose? (Sandy's answer: the time in Stand on Zanzabar - because it was just all over the place, yet far enough in the future to prove mankind had made it)
2) If you could be one character from a comic book or fiction series, who would it be? (Sandy's answer: the adult Jane Eyre)
3) Where (in the real world) is your dream vacation spot? (Sandy's answer: Marathon in the Keys)
4) Name a celebrity or TV personality whom you would like to have lunch with. (Sandy's answer: Jeff Goldblum - because I think he'd have me laughing so hard I couldn't actually eat lunch...OR! Wait! Either Jeff Goldblum or Robin Williams. Holy cow. Can I have lunch with both of them? At the same time? I would probably collapse and die...)

It's not a long list of questions, but it makes you stop and think a bit, doesn't it? Spring break isn't really supposed to be for deep thinking, I know, but we're writers here, and we think at different depths at different times. (I'm just grasping here.)

If you're not on the meme list of participants above but you want to get in on the game, that's cool. You can certainly do so. Just copy the list of questions and list of participating blogs into a post on your blog, type in your answers, and type in the list of folks you're inviting to participate. Let me know that you've joined in the game in the comment field here so I can check out your blog and add you to the scene.

Have fun getting away with us…

That is fabulous! See, a travel writer knows how to get away! This one was fun, wasn't it?

Just to let you know, I was tagged by Tina and had no idea what a meme was. But, I looked it up and gave it a shot. Now I'm curious as to how Nigel will answer those questions for Sandy.
