The Muse Party Blogfest!!

Sarah Foster is hosting The Muse Party Blogfest! Bring your Muse, answer some fun questions on your blog, and get the party started!! Check out her blog, The Faux Fountain Pen, for more info and the list of participants. 


Happy Blogiversary, Sarah! Thanks for having a fun blogfest party!
 
1. Who is your muse (or character)? Tell us a little bit about him/her and why you brought them. 

My muse has a name. Nigel Carruthers. (Lovingly borrowed from Billy Connolly) He’s British. Snooty. Arrogant. Fussy. He sounds like Ian McKellan.  When he’s angry. Which is most of the time. When he’s on, he’s really on. Other times, he’s just drinking pints and telling me where to stick it.



2. What are you guys wearing? Dressing up or keeping it casual?

I’m a jeans and T-shirt kind of gal. However Nigel is always properly dressed for any occasion.



3. It's a potluck! Did you bring something yummy?

Always bring something for the host. I’m bringing bunches and bunches of celery. Nigel has brought his own libations. Cause he’s rude.



4. Open bar! What are you both drinking (booze or otherwise)?

I’m going to need coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.



5. Wallflowers or social butterflies?

Funny. This question really puts the two of us in perspective. I’m a wallflower to the extreme. I do like to people watch, but eventually I’ll take out my book and forget about everyone else. Nigel will party all day and all night and all week!  



6. What song(s) will you and your muse sing for karaoke?

I campaigned for Don’t Stop Believin’ from Journey, but Nigel wants to sing Maxwell’s Silver Hammer from The Beatles.


7. What's your favorite party game?

My favorite party game is ‘Let’s watch the clock!’ I hope that doesn’t sound rude, but I’m not good with people. Nigel’s one of those guys that are good at everything, no matter what game you pull out he’s mastered it.



8. Which one of you is more likely to end up dancing on a table top?

This one I can honestly say, neither. Nigel would never embarrass himself, even as inebriated as he gets.


9. Has your muse been a good date and would you ever hang out with them again?

Nigel arrived with me and he’s leaving with someone else. He’s not to be trusted with that accent. But, he has great stories to share. Sometimes he’s so intense he scorches your skin. Sometimes he’s so damaged you just want to hold him until the pain goes away.  Sometimes he’s so funny, you can’t even breathe. So, yeah, I would definitely hang out with him more, given the chance.

  1. Nigel sounds like a fascinating person to hang out with. For some reason, he's bringing mind the director Burke from The Exorcist (which might make sense if you've read the book). Maybe it's the British accent.

    1. The problem with Nigel is that he knows he's fascinating.

  2. *NOTE* Sorry. I had some technical difficulties with Blogger this morning. I had to put up a new post w/o the badge and lost Mr. Cavanaugh's comment. So, I moved it! Cause he rocks and I love his comments!

    Nigel is rude for not bringing a dish and leaving the party with someone else. Although I would like to hear him sing that Beatles song.

    1. Thanks, Heather! This showed up again in my Feedly reader and I wondered what happened.

    2. Crazy-ness happened.
      There is some HTML madness going on with one line and I can't find it and get it off the darn post!

      Thanks for your comments! He does sing pretty well.

  3. NO! NOT CELERY. :D
    Thanks for coming to my party! Honestly, if it was a real one, I'd probably be watching the clock, too!
    Nigel sounds interesting! I wonder who he's leaving with. I hope this thing doesn't lead to a bunch of muse hookups. We'll never get any writing done...

    1. Hahaha that's what I was going to say! I thought we decided over a month ago that celery was not allowed... :)

    2. Muse hookups! It's so going to happen!
      Just like 'WallFly'!

      There will always be celery. It's like the cockroach of vegetables.

  4. Oh, a British muse! I like it!

    I'll eat some celery. Did you bring some ranch dressing or dip to go with it? :)

    1. Yes to the Ranch! It's a must with celery!

    1. Right? You can get me to do a lot of things with that accent.

  6. Do we have ranch or peanut butter to put on the celery? Something to make it tolerable. =P

    1. Ranch is available. PB only if we have raisins to go on top. (Ants on a log) (It's a childhood thing)

  7. Such a vivid, endearing picture you painted of Nigel. I'd like to make his acquaintance and we could have an accent-off, but I think he would be posher than me.

    1. Thank you! I always forget some of my blog friends have accents! It doesn't always translate in your writing until you put in the extra letter 'u'!
      Thanks for coming!

  8. "British muses for the win!" cheers Will Scarlet, hand up for a high five. "Though all my friends are awful and tell me I'm the most basic American out of the lot of us, never mind my legendary English origins. Haters."

    Not sure whether a snooty, arrogant fusspot is gonna do more than leave your high five hanging, but - *shrug* - you can try, bro.

  9. Hmmm . . .who did Nigel leave with? Has anyone seen Patricia? Patricia! He's probably too young for you!

    1. Patricia might be able to show a few things to Nigel. Like how to wear a pantsuit!

  10. Oh boy, Nigel sounds like trouble, and in a good kinda way! I agree with Samantha, bet he left with Patricia! And I can tell you, that accent/voice is killer, but celery? Come on girl! It's a PARTY!!! Lisa @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.com

  11. We Brits make the best muses...and villains apparently ;). Loved meeting Nigel - it's nice to hear a British accent every once in a while ;). Also, I'd team up with you for the karaoke if you needed someone - love that song!!

    1. Not just villains! Everyone from Asgard also speaks with an English accent. :)

      I'll tap you on the shoulder when its time to sing!

  12. Nigel seems a good date, or an excellent working partner. Well balanced.

    Loved the Memorial Day badge too. Awesome.

  13. Great post, Heather. Nigel sounds like an interesting fellow. I'm sure he's a harsh taskmaster too.

    ReplyDelete
  14. J.H.! Yes! He is very harsh and stingy with his help.
