Blog Tour: Between Character Interview

Today, for the blog tour over at The Teen {Book} Scene, I got to interview Lindsay, the MC of Between! She's super fun, and I promise this post to be filled with yummy guys (that will melt you if the summer heat didn't). ;)

1. Hey, Lindsey! Thanks for joining us today. To begin, why don't you do a brief introduction about yourself?

Thanks! Well, let's see. I'm Lindsey Waters. *waves* I'm eighteen and just started college. I room with two girls (Jen and Steph) in a triple dorm room, which is majorly bizarre for me, since I'm an only child and have always had my own room. I guess it's a good thing my parents didn't have more kids, though since they got divorced last year. Actually, I don't want to talk about that. *growls*

I love to sing and am taking French classes in school. I've always wanted to travel and maybe even sing in a band someday. That would be awesome! Of course, that was all before the big accident...

2. So, was dying everything you expected it to be?

No way! I don't know what I expected exactly, but I never thought I'd wake up in a beautiful meadow and meet the most gorgeous guy. That's just crazy, right? But that's exactly what happened, I swear it. The accident was over so fast and dying itself didn't hurt at all. And then the realm in between heaven and earth was so amazing—to be able to relive memories or just think of something and have it materialize—I just wanted to stay there forever. Well actually, it was mostly Aiden I wanted to keep forever. :) He's yummy.


3. If you could rewind time to any point in your life, what would you choose to change or have a chance to do?
At the first school dance when I started college, I drank too much of the spiked punch and I let Ravi kiss me. He was so sweet that I couldn't stop myself. Still, I ended up hurting him and I hate that. I think I'd go back to just being his good friend if I could do it over again. :( 

4. It seems like you have a thing for exotic men, first Ravi then Aiden. Looking at cultures outside America, where can we find the world's sexiest accent and ethnic apparel (pictures appreciated ;))?

Yeah, I have a thing for accents. *grin*

Indian boys with beautiful cocoa eyes just melt me. English gents are so dapper and sophisticated (hello, Jude Law anyone??) But Aiden, oh geez, the way he said my name with the rolling "r" in Waters, I was a goner from that moment on. There's a reason why "Scot" and Hot" rhyme! Sorry I don't have a pic of him to share at the mo, but here are some of my faves.

5. If you could make whatever flavor ice cream you wanted, what would it be? What would you name your flavor?

I love the cereal Golden Grahams. They're crunchy and sweet, sorta honey and cinnamon and a little I-don't-know-what-else. An ice cream with Golden Grahams mixed into a cinnamon base—bliss! We could call it Yummo-Grahams or Golden Goodness. What do you think?

6. Which would you rather have for a pet:
- ostrich or kangaroo
- T-rex or pterodactyl 
napkin or bottle cap

- Kangaroo, definitely. Ostriches have creepy eyes and weird me out bigtime. Besides, the little kangaroo babies are so cute!
- I'm going with pterodactyl. The T-Rex would just want to eat me anyway. Maybe I could train my pterodactyl so it would let me ride it and we could go flying together!
- I have a drink napkin from a party that says "Cocktail napkin seeking tall, cold beverage for a short-term relationship." Cracks me up.

7. When you think of your love Aiden, what song do you think of? Is there a memory that accompanies that song? :)

L.O.V.E. by Natalie Cole. I had that playing one day while I was making breakfast. He came up behind me and danced with me. I can still feel the warmth of his chest, pressed against my back as we swayed together to the music. *swoon*

8. Let's hear your parting words of wisdom:

Live every day as if it were your last. I know that is so cliché and you can't really (or else no one would ever take out the garbage), but just don't waste your life thinking that "someday" you'll get around to doing that thing you've always wanted. Do it now. Make plans to travel. Sing in a band. Kiss a cute boy (Indian, English or Scottish- or heck, all three!). Live out your dreams today because tomorrow may bring something you never expected!  


Thanks, Lindsay! You know what they say about dreams: Reach for the moon and, if you fall, you'll fall among the stars. <3
