Getting To Know Me

Many thanks to Ish, who brings us wonderful stories in her Musings of a Writer Wanna Be for presenting me with this Award! Hoping to get my award UP on my side panel when my customizer stops getting all snarky…

My first tour a duty is Getting To Know Me:

1.How did you pick your blog’s name?

Several years ago, in a land far away (5 miles, to be exact), a good friend of mine introduced me to a really interesting past time: Letterboxing! This past time has some excellent history to it. But we are Johnny-come-lately folk. We had to choose a name which would be used on the site for this treasure hunting activity. The naming of things, is a favorite game, in itself, so we (Mr. Quantum and I) were happy to sit and brainstorm on the particular handle which would incorporate part of him and part of me. Obviously Quantum belongs to him, and that makes me Hermit. This Hermit is paying homage to the Major Arcana Tarot card from the Gaian Tarot deck. Thus, Quantum Hermit was conceived. When I began blogging, it was easy to shuttle it over for use in my own blog.

2.What is the most delicious food you have ever eaten?

I’m laughing here. Mr. Quantum doesn’t believe that I have a favorite food. He doesn’t believe that I eat food. I’m always scowling at the idea of eating (but it’s really cooking)… So I actually DO have a most delicious food: generally cakes, cookies, but if we’re talking actual entre type food, French Toast! ANYTHING with bread, for the most part.

3.Which is your favorite book?

The Stand by Stephen King

4.What are three things you cannot live without?

I can’t live without Mr. Quantum
I can’t live without having access to Nature
I can’t live without music!

5.Who is your favorite fictional character?

Are we talking books? or any medium (e.g. movies, tv shows?)?
If we’re doing the book specific thing, Nick Andros or Stu Redman (if we’re going with books, wouldn’t you think the favorite character should be from the favorite book?) from The Stand.
Now, if we’re talking favorite fictional character in a tv show or movie, that’s harder.
Pops to mind: Robert Neville (I Am Legend); Ronon Dex (Stargate Atlantis); THEO (Jeremiah); Legolas (LOTR:FOTR); Javier Vachon (Forever Knight); Daryl Dixon, and Michonne (TWD) and the list goes on and on…. Lorilai Gilmore (Gilmore Girls)… The entire cast of Firefly.

6.What is your favorite quote and by who?
“What we have to do is to decide what to do with the time that is given us.” Gandalf, LOTR

7.Describe yourself in three words.

Spiritual. Driven. Neurotic

8.What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Twilight Saga movies (no cracks from the peanut or any other gallery)

9.What single quality do you most appreciate in people?


10.Which was the prompt you liked most in #writing101?

Day Sixteen: Third Time’s the Charm:
Prompt: Imagine you had a job in which you had to sift through forgotten or lost belongings. Describe a day in which you come upon something peculiar, or tell a story about something interesting you find in a pile.

11.What’s your favorite post that you’ve written? (Link, please!)

My favorite post, from my whole blog?

I had to go back and actually see what the prompts from Writing 101 were, so I got to sample each post. I have to say, the prompt above, and the story I wrote, and the memory of that moments really communing with the Green Ones, in the form of tree frogs everywhere, was a happy reading.
Tubby The Tuba Has Nothing On Me would be it, (within the course)

This was great fun!
More to come!
