That's Right --- Cassie's HERE!

That's right - I've have all sorts of fame and Mt. Dew drinkin', chest bumpin', awesomeness here today!

I know a lot of you know Cassie, but how much do you really know her? Hmmm?  I'll tell you what, I have been hooked on her blog since the day I found it. I don't know of anyone who can compare to her. She is so freakin' funny - I am constantly rolling and running for the potty after reading her stuff. (Yes, I said running for the potty - I don't want to pee my pants laughing!)

So - if you think you can handle it, or you at least have your depends on, or a potty close by... be sure to hop over and check it out. Cassie Mae ~ Reading, Writing & Lovin' It!

Anyway... are you ready to see what she has to say for her interview? I thought so! Lets get right to some answers!

First off, Leigh, you are so supa amazing and I can’t believe you are allowing me on your blog! Your blog is FAMOUS! *blows kisses and pageant waves*

Famous?! I'm so not famous - YOU'RE FAMOUS! That's why its so super epic that you are HERE! *sprinkler dance!* But feel free to call me famous if you please - a like it.

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself in 40 words or less.

Forty words or less? I don’t think I can do that. I’m way too blabby for this question, I’m sure of it. I’ll take a stab at it, but pretty sure I’ll be cut off before I can even say…

*giggles* I'm blabby too! I always got the "Most Talkative" awards. That and "Biggest Flirt." But that's a different story. Ahem...

2. Give us a brief synopsis of your current WIP.

My current one, eh? Well the one I’m working on now is about a kid who falls for the chubby girl in his class, and does whatever he can to prove she’s not as fat as she thinks she is. :)

Awww! Love this idea! My heck - you come up with the best ideas! I can't believe what an amazing writer you are too. (And yes, I've read some of her stuff!) I know - I'm so lucky!

3. I've seen mention of a couple different stories from you. Where are you at with them? Writing, editing, querying etc?

Writing the one I just answered in question number 2. ;) Querying HOW TO DATE A NERD right now. And the others are sadly on the backburner.

HOW TO DATE A NERD! Titles don't get much better than that! Good luck with your querying. So exciting!

4. How long have you been blogging and why did you decide to start?

Oh man, it feels like forever ago! But I wrote my first blog post in August of 2011. I haven’t even had a blogoversary! And I want one so bad! I can’t wait till August, lol.

And I started cuz Mommy said it was a good idea. And Mommy’s a smart woman :)

Yes - Mommy is a smart woman! And we totally started blogging at the same time! Does that make us cool? I think it should!

5. What is your favorite thing about being a writer?

Getting to call myself that. It pretty much rocks when people ask, ‘So, what do you do?’ And I say, ‘I’m a writer. Beat that.’ Haha!

Okay, I'm so proud of you for that! I'm such a wuss when it comes to telling very many "non-writer" people what I do. I'm working on it. You're my inspiration! *uh-oh... now that song is in my head!*

And now... the ever famous, chocolate chip questions. Oh-yeah, they're that good!

Just want to add, I’ve eaten an entire bag of chocolate chips before, lol. Don’t judge, I was in a bad place. I couldn’t buy Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows when it came out on DVD. Yeah, I still don’t have it :(

Must find chocolate now!
That is a seriously good reason for doing so. I would have went for the entire pan of brownies. And ... let me tell you something worse. I bought the movie. Watched it once. My bro borrowed it the next day - watched it. Gave it to little bro to watch. Now... it's lost. If their bodies turn up missing don't look at me!
6. We know you have a Mt. Dew addiction. Is there any possibility I could sway to Coca-Cola?

I LOVE Coke! (The drink, I’m not like doing lines or anything.) But nothing diet. That stuff is not soda. It is brown water posing as soda. Judge me all you want Diet Coke addicts!

See - you just keep building yourself up in my mind! DIET is not soda! It's yuck! Yuckity, yuck, yuck YUCK! And I'm glad to see you like Coke too! Whew.

7. If you could build a vacation home on any planet, which one would it be, and why?

I’d say Alderaan, but Darth Vader blew that sucker to pieces. So I’d have to go with Naboo, in the underwater thingy… but only if Jar Jar Binks has died.

*snickers* Love your choices.

8. You've recently starred as Princess Leia on a spectacular video on FB. How was it playing that part? (I'm totally posting this video.)

Awesome! It was an honor to star with such talented people. Mike (I mean Mark!) has a wicked beard. Leigh, you play an excellent guy. And David is definitely an actor on the rise! 

I know what you mean. It was a pretty epic casting and acting experience.

Personalize funny videos and birthday eCards at JibJab!

9. Do you have any odd or unusual habits we need to know about?

Need to know about? Lol, no. No one needs to know about my habits. But um, I’ve got one.

So, I’ve recently shared on my blog that I’m terrified of getting shot on the toilet, so when I use a public stall, I put my feet up against the door so no one knows I’m in there.

Don't worry - I made it to the bathroom in time! You crack me up!

10. Share your favorite thought or quote.

“Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?”
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”

And another because I couldn’t decide on which one I like better:

“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”

Always a Harry Potter quote. :)

Love these both! Harry Potter gives us some great stuff!
Big THANKS and major cyber chest bumps to my peep, Leigh for allowing me to spew on her blog. Love you girl!!!

Chest bumps back! Oh man, now my boobs hurt! O-well. It was worth it to have you on my blog and there was totally no spewage, just awesome-sauce!

Thank you SO MUCH for spending time over here today Cassie! I have loved every second of it. You're the rockstar of all the blogging world!

So everyone throw out your chest bumps and awesome-sauce comments for Cassie. Show her some love! And also --- don't forget that CASSAFIRE by Alex J. Cavanaugh is out today! Whoot-whoot! Congrats to Alex!

Mark Koopmans said...

An open letter to the cyber-sisters - by their brudda from anudda mudda:

Dear Leigh and Cathy,

Y'all are too funny - by far - and it's been *such* a pleasure getting to know both of you.

Leigh, thanks for hosting Carole, I'm sure it was a hoot doing the interview and getting the answers back.

And Claire, Claire, Claire... I loved your answers for many different reasons (it was nice to see the curtain being pulled back a little :) but I am most happy, 'cos now I have *more* info in which to base my interview with Cleo (to be held prior to the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.

PS... I too logged on for the first time in August 2011 (although first post was 9/11/11) so if you guys don't mind, we could have a Trifecta of a Blogesary, or Blogirthday.

Anyway, Thanks Leigh and Cassie - that interview - it was classy :)

Cassie Mae said...

Miranda: Thanks! I'm super happy Leigh let me invade! (just so my words could be on the blog with that sexy Ryan. Sigh...)

Talli: Leigh is the funny one, I promise! She makes me giggle all the time :)

Kyra: Kay, I totally didn't make that up! It's for real, and becomes quite a talent. Esp. when the door is too far away. So you guessed it, no handi-cap stalls for me.

Micheal: A freakin' triple blogoversary??? I'm so down with that!!! (Aug is also my birthday... just sayin' ;) )

Awesome interview, you two!
