Culture Vulture Express has got a second Real Neat Blog Award from Mark at markanthonysblog. Thanks so much Mark. 🙂

 

 

Answers

 

1. Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hanks?

Both great actors but I have a bit of a crush on Benedict so I’m going to say him! 🙂

 

2. If you could go back in time, where would you go?

The 60s because it was a time of so much social change beginning and I love the music and the clothes.

 

3. Hot or cold weather?

Cold weather, not freezing but cooler weather. I’m Irish, I’m not used to the sun! 🙂

 

4. Things that remind you of your childhood?

Furbies, tamagotchis, Pokemon, Rugrats, troll dolls, Toy Story, Tellytubbies, Cindy doll, Barbie, Polly Pocket.

 

5. What show are you currently watching?

I’m catching up on the Rupaul’s Drag Race seasons gradually. I hadn’t watched the show and then I started watching season 6 because I became a fan of Courtney Act in Celebrity Big Brother in the UK and I got hooked and now I’m going through the seasons.

 

6. Favourite blogger(s)? and why.

Everyone’s blog that I follow because you’re all amazing! 🙂

 

7. What subjects are your most and least favourite?

Well when I was at school my favourite was English because I always loved reading and writing. My least favourite was Maths. I was never any good at them and a close second for least would have been PE. I quite liked hockey and tennis but the rest especially the fitness tests, no.

 

Feel free to use the same questions and comment below if you would like to be a nominee and take part. 🙂

This is Cohen Makovsky and he’s the main character of my Adult Science-Fiction novel Silhouette. He had his own Beautiful People, but I need to get to know him even more. XD Let me tell you a bit about him.”

PART I (10-minute read)

Value in the Balance (from Rock Creek) by Charli Mills

“Property values go up the more improvements we make.” Cobb replaced his years of responsibility as a sheriff with a drive to improve every inch of Rock Creek Station.

Sarah unpacked the latest freight of sundries from St. Louis While Cobb sawed planks for the new schoolhouse. The wood gleamed gold like the barn, toll booth, toll bridge, post office, eastside station and horse stables. The store Sarah operated had gray wood, showing its age. Sarah calculated Cobbs improvements and noted that it added up to more debt that income.

And then things got really hairy. Tristan, a highly trained shock marine, wakes up after the trip to find that nothing works: not his equipment, not his ship, not even his body… He joins the race against time to bring their equipment back up to fighting trim and begin to understand what has happened to them and to unravel the layers of confusion and betrayal. But the enemy waiting for them doesn’t care about any of that. They just want to destroy the human incursion as quickly as possible.”

Speed Dating Linesby Luccia Gray

“You’re a writer?”

She nodded, expecting him to make an excuse and move away; instead he asked, “Could you write me an original pick up line?”

“I’m not helping you lie.”

“Are you kidding?” He said waving his arm around the crowded venue. “Everyone’s expecting me…
