Would You Rather... with Hilary Grossman

Chips, chocolate or cheese? 

Cheese, please!  Especially the spicy kind...

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw? 

Carrie Bradshaw!  What I would do for an hour in her closet....Especially her shoe closet!

Wine, beer or vodka? 

Wine! It is essential for survival :) I actually detest beer. I think I can count on one hand the number of beers I’ve had in my life.

Camping or spa vacation?

After surviving Hurricane Sandy and the aftermath I learned I would make a very good camper. However, camping by choice?  No way!  I am not a spa fan either though. I only had one massage in my life and it was done by a depressed masseuse.  It took me days to recover from the stories she told me....

Water or Mountains?

Water!  I am a total beach bum!

Zombies or Vampires?

Vampires... There is something sexy about them.

Dogs or Cats?

I used to be team dog all the way, but now I am more of a cat girl.... About a year ago I adopted a kitten, Lucy. I swear she is the feline version of me!

Coke or Pepsi?

Diet Coke.  I never drink regular soda. I hate to waste the calories on it. I would rather save them for wine.  After all, see #3 - Wine is essential for life!

Coffee or tea?

Coffee!  I mainline it every morning and end up drinking at least half a pot.  But I am a coffee snob. I grind my own beans every morning.

Dine out or take away?

Dine out.  I really don’t like to take away, unless it is sushi.  But I really enjoy cooking.

High heels, sneakers or flip flops

High heels. I love the way they make me feel!

Physical book or ebook?

Ebook! I do most of my reading on the run. I love the convenience of an ebook!  I also love that you never have to worry about not having a book with you. You can just download another.

Paperback or Hardcover?


Pen or Pencil?

Depends on my mood.... But just for the doodle-ability. If you sit me down with a piece of paper and a pen or pencil I can’t help but draw.  I find sitting still very difficult. Doodling helps me focus. You should see my notebooks at work.  I have elaborate drawings with some notes scattered in.

Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad

I hate to admit I haven’t watched any of them. I really don’t watch much TV - although I do love to fall asleep to Criminal Mind reruns.

Drama or Comedy?

Comedy.  Laughter is the best medicine!  But although I lean towards Rom Com’s give me a good mafia flick any day.... 

Twilight or Hunger Games? 

I am ducking my head in shame (again). I haven’t read or watched either.

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick? 

Chapstick.  I look funny with lip color...

Facebook or Twitter

It took me a while to fall in love with it, but now I love Twitter!  I adore how you can really search for stuff. I have learned a lot on twitter... 

Plot your entire novel or fly by the seat of your pants? 

Totally by the seat of my pants (and in the shower). I get my best ideas there!

Hilary had gotten used to dating the commitment-phobic Marc, thirteen years her senior. They had a great relationship--why rush into things? She saw no need to pressure him for marriage, believing that when the time was right, he would propose. But after they had been together for four years, their friends decided to take matters into their own hands, pushing Marc to propose and making Hilary realize how much she really did want to marry the man that she loved. Unfortunately, Marc still wasn't ready--and their friends' meddling in the form of a faux engagement party led to a disastrous New Year's Eve that brought their relationship to an inevitable turning point.
