Answer for question 4398.

Which book in the Lord of the Rings saga is your favorite? Which character do you find most enjoyable, and why? If you've never read the books, do you plan to do so or do they just not interest you?
My favourite book of the LotR Saga is more a combination of two books. I like the parts of the Two Towers and Return of the King that center on the adventures of Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli (and later Pepin and Merry). When I re-read LotR I tend to just skip the bits with only Frodo and Samwise, I find all the "Angst" not to my taste. And I have never read the Hobbit, and hearing/seeing what the story is about with all those movies, I do not think I will ever read it. Maybe it is a bit "weak" of me, but I like a happy(ish) ending.

Writer's Block: Just Say No!

What bad habit have you broken?
Eight years ago I stopped smoking, after a habit of heavy smoking for twenty years. I can't say I haven't been tempted now and then to start again, but so far I am still a non-smoker! (Yay me!)

Writer's Block: The happiest movies on earth

"The Emperor's new Groove" a.k.a (in Dutch) "Keizer Cusco" 
It has an absolute magnificent storyline and text, both in the original English as wel as in the Dutch translation. Add to this the usual perfect Disney-animation and you get what I think is the best Disney movie ever.

What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? Was it any good?

Froglegs. They tasted like chicken, nothing special. I liked the snails better. But that was more because of the garlic-butter sauce. The snails themselves had no special taste at all.

What was the first video or computer game you ever played? Did you love it or hate it, and why?

Pong on a console. I loved it. It was simple, didn't need much hand-eye coordination, and you could play it solo or with two people. I would love to be able to play again (with a "stick" , no keyboard/mouse control please!)

Writer's Block: The start of something wonderful

What is your favorite opening line of a book, and why?

"The man who was not Terrence O'Grady had come quietly."

Agent of Change by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller.  (rolanni  + kinzel )

It is a simple start that becomes very not-simple very quickly, and in it's simplicity already promises a lot of complications (the man who was NOT Terrence O'Grady......)

So many books

Writer's Block: Time after time

If you fall in love with a book or movie, do you tend to watch/read it again and again? If so, what's your upper limit on repeats?

Movies I might watch more than one time, but not very often. But with books my reaction is: Upper Limit?? What Upper Limit!? Books I like/love I keep on reading again and again. That is the beauty of books. You make your own film, inside your head, with the most perfect "actors"  and the most perfect "scenery" your fantasy can make up. And you can repeat that over and over and adapt your characters and such as your fantasy evolves.
