1. How did you name your pets?
Normally I name them what I think they fit. I tend to favourite my favourite character's names. Salem was just a certain - before I'd even got him I knew his name would be Salem. My hamster, Jasper, was named after my favourite Twilight character.

2. Poirot or Miss Marpel?
Neither. I'm more of a Jessica Fletcher girl myself.

3. Do you have a FB account too?
Unfortunately.

4. Books - hardcover or paperback
Paperback. There's just something more comfortable about paperbacks. However, I do like small hardcovers, like the [A] Series of Unfortunate Events books.

5. Mobile(cell phone): Windows/Android or Apple?
Although I'm on an android right now, I do admit that I prefer Apple. I think I'm just too used to iPhones.

1. How did you name your pets?
Growing up, my parents used gangster names. My last dog with them was a Christmas gift- a chow St.Bernard mix called Mugsy. As adults, my family angles heavily towards geekdom. Our eldest kitty never really chose a name- we thought about Aunt Opelia who is one of Morwen's cats from The Enchanted Forest Chronicles, but ultimately she became simply MissKitty. Flummery is an expletive used by Rex Stout's character, Nero Wolfe, meaning "nonsense". Gadgetzan is a place in World of Warcraft. And Schmendrick was from Peter S. Beagle's The Last Unicorn.

2. Poirot or Miss Marpel?
I take a very hard line on this! Poirot, all the way, and if in film-age version, please, please be David Suchet!

3. Do you have a FB account too?
I do... largely because I have children, well, nearly grown now. I began a FB page to keep up with them, and their friends. The now-adults that grew up with me as a second mom use FB to keep in touch with me.

4. Books - hardcover or paperback
Loaded question, that. Books are the one thing I collect. And, man, do I collect. Paperbacks are good if I am getting to know an author's work, or if I don't think I'll be rereading a lot. If it is an author I adore, I want a hardcover collection.

5. Mobile(cell phone): Windows/Android or Apple?
Uh... none of the above. I have a cheesy, cheapy, $24/mo little "candy bar" phone that allows me to have unlimited texting/calling, and takes cheesy badly lit photos. Heh. (but it allows me to spend the savings on books!) ;)

David Suchet IS Poirot. I am right there with you that!

Those are great pet names. :D

FB is good for that, I just wish there wasn't so much bad stuff mix it. I don't think it's FB's fault, rather people taking advantage of it.

I am much more passionate about books than I am my phone, which is just a phone at the end of the day.

Great answers!
