Welcome Mogger

I'd like to welcome a very special guest and hope everyone who stops by does the same. I actually had to tackle this guy, hog tie and gag him, threaten him with a fate worse than celibacy to make him talk. Jeeze, what's a woman have to do to get a reader to say boo?

Well, it worked and I'm thrilled to have Moggers here today. An old friend, very light on the old and incredibly deep with the friend part there who's also a reader. He's a special man who I'm sure Mrs Moggers appreciates to the fullest. Now, without any more blunderings, babblings or commentary from yours truly, here's Mog:

1. When did you begin reading romance and / or erotica
I can’t remember NOT reading it, so I guess it’s a pretty long time

2. What is your favorite genre?
M/F straight. Though, like most (probably all) men, the thought of two girls making love is – er –interesting…I prefer modern day in some exotic location, but again, just to be different, I’d love to write a series of imaginary letters from a soldier to his girl set in WW1. The contrast between the misery of the trenches and the delights of being with his girl could be very powerful. It would take a much better writer than me to write that though.

3. Besides reading, do you have any hobbies?
I/ We love to travel. We’re not backpackers, more tourists but we do our best to get around, and I write up our experiences  in the form of a journal when we get home again.

Small tool woodworking (no wisecracks please) I’m currently making some wooden toys for my grandson.

Cooking: I’m no chef, but I enjoy cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Mrs. Mogger just raises her eyes heavenwards and gets ready to wash up. I recently acquired a breadmaker, and as I’m writing the house smells of freshly baked bread – is there anything nicer?

4. If you could be in a romance book what would the title be?
Not a clue! How about “Loving with Floured hands”? or possibly “A Feast of Fun in the Bedroom. As you can see, imagination is not my strong point. Book titles must be a nightmare LOL

5. Have you ever met an author? If so, who?   
Only one – you, and the four of us (that’s us two and our spouses) had a pretty wonderful day and a bit together. Take care – we may come back one day!

6. What clothing makes you feel sexy?
What my clothing or someone else's? My clothing: I don’t know about sexy, but I like to look as good as I can if I’m going somewhere special .Normally I’m not one for ties but I have been known to look out the old Dinner Suit, most times though I’m pretty casual. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m a bit old for jeans and I actually prefer to wear trousers. I still have several pairs of jeans though.  

On others: I like to see a good looking woman in nicely tailored clothing, elegant length skirts and nice shoes. That’s everyday wear, if we’re talking lust, then latex, spandex and black hold ups can work wonders…. Actually black hold ups with lacy tops are – never mind LOL

7. Has a book or story ever given you ideas for a romantic evening with your lover?
Of course, isn’t that the idea?

8. Do you have a favorite author? Or two?
I’m probably too biased to answer that meaningfully I only “know” yourself and one other author, Jenna Byrnes, two if I include D Musgrave, so this is a tricky question for me. Of those three, I’m not prepared to say which I enjoy most. You’re all very good!

9. What’s your favorite comfort food?
I love plain old fry-ups. Sausage egg and chips, bacon & egg, Nothing like it – the original heart attack on a plate. If we’re going out I love a red hot curry with a beer.

10. If you had one wish, would you give away? Why or why not and to whom would you give it?
I would wish that you and Ron could visit us for a good length of time. Why? Because we only touched on our friendship, but it was pretty amazing and we have quite a lot to show you two when you finally cross the pond. Oh, and I’d like to see Tony Blair on a spit over a roasting fire! Can I turn the handle? – slowly! Why? For taking this country to war over none existent WMD, for the misery caused to the  families of our young men and women who paid the ultimate price for his adventure – and for making millions on the lecture tour and from his book sales. He wouldn’t recognize a principle if it bit him on the arse! That’s two wishes – so sue me!

11. Are you a dreamer? Why yes or no?
Bearing in mind the last answer, what do you think?

12. If you could invite any famous person, dead or alive, for dinner, who would it be and what would you eat?
Gosh, that’s a toughie! I think it would be Mark Twain. I’d love to engage with his wit and possibly remember some of his wonderful quotes. If the person was female, it would be Princess Di. She was such a deeply melancholy person (in my opinion) I would have loved to just talk to her. As I’ll eat pretty well anything, I’d leave the menu to them

13. If you could choose one vice, what would it be?
I have enough already – any more - would be embarrassing

14. Are you in love? Have you ever been?
Yes to both – for many years. Not unlike yourself buddy

15. One pillow or two?
Two – at least it’s two until She-Who-Must - Be –Obeyed pinches the second one. She’s gonna kill me for this!

16. Winter or Summer and why?
Summer, because I just love to be warm and not to wear coats and stuff, but every season has its own beauty. I love the colour of Autumn, the crisp cold Winter mornings, and the awakening of Spring. It’s very hard to choose. I’ve opted for summer, because Mrs. Mogger and I try to get away somewhere warm in Feb for our anniversary. By that time we’re fed of being cold, and want some sun on our backs

Hi Mog,

A very special thank you for allowing me to post this. You've been an extraordinary friend and I'm sure a pain in the butt, which I plan to continue for the foreseeable future.

Thank you

Great interview. I'm sure she-who-must-be-obeyed wouldn't have stood for the celibacy for long. Glad you opted for the interview.

D. Musgrave said...

What a great interview! I loved it, Mog.

thanks for the comments. It was an enjoyable time spent thinking of the answers. They're all true BYW - especially the one about hold ups...LOL

Hi Mog. Nice to learn a little more about you. Mrs. Mog is one lucky lady, as I'm sure she knows.
