Monday, 29 June 2009 Trust Me

'Sometimes you can learn more about a person by what they don’t tell you. Sometimes you can learn a lot from the things they just make up. If you are tagged with this Meme, lie to me. Then tag 7 other folks (one for each deadly sin) and hope they can lie.'

All round puppy wrangler and zombie star Samantha Sterner caught me a vicious sideswipe to the head tagging me with this – I wasn’t due to post again until Thursday. Stops me being lazy though, so here goes.

Pride: What is your biggest contribution to the world?

The new James Bond novel – L.R. Bonehill writing as Sebastian Faulks writing as Ian Fleming.

Oh, and religion, that was me too. That’s pretty big, I guess.

Envy: What do your co-workers wish they had which is yours?

All the scripts for the final season of Lost.

Gluttony: What did you eat last night?

Dodo fillet. They make great pets too, by the way. Dodos that is, not just the cooked fillets; that would be too weird.

Lust: What really lights your fire?

Not sure I should post that here – I don’t think anyone would ever talk to me again.

If you really want to know, just send me an e-mail, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Anger: What is the last thing that really pissed you off?

Chewing gum, but I can’t say why.

Greed: Name something you keep from others.

The fact that I know everyone’s secrets – especially yours and, I have to say, I’m shocked. In a good way, though.

Sloth: What's the laziest thing you've ever done?

Left my completed trilogy on the shelf to rot because I can’t be bothered to write a query letter.

So there you have it, and not a word of a lie.

Rebecca, Michael, Benjamin, consider yourself well and truly tagged. If you want to, that is.

Remember though, the fate of the world rests on your decision. No pressure…

I think I've actually commited your sloth for real. :( Oh, and please send me the scripts for Lost, I can't stand the waiting.

hey i've never been called a zombie star before! i like it

i can just see someone keeping a fillet as a pet. "come" they say, and the fillet would just lay there, glazed and delicious.

Thanks for the tag. Loved your latest Bond novel btw ;)

I've played along.

Love your answers, LRB. You're a gifted liar.

As much as I'd love to do this, it will have to wait till I've finished the current novel. I'm on a blog hiatus till then.

Cate – Much as I’d like to pass the scripts on, Jacob has warned me not to.

Samantha – Once you write that set of living dead board books for toddlers, you’ll be an even bigger zombie star.

Benjamin – It’s a bit different to my usual work, so glad you liked it. Spread the word.

Michael – Very sensible and hope it all goes well.
