Harvey's tête-à-tête with Mary Kaley

If you're ever on Twitter and you follow a bunch of us crazy writers who call ourselves the #goatposse, you're probably nodding your head by now and thinking, "Ah, yes. Those nut jobs are at it again." :)

This is Harvey. He'll be asking the questions around here.

Well, we are proud to say we managed to rope reel pressure convince a totally respectable and upstanding writer friend to join our silliness and do the EVIL Panty Meme (originated by the nefariously clever Michelle Simkins) in exchange for the #goatposse badge/blog bling and LOTS of goatly love. <3

So let's give a warm applause to our new member: Mary Baader Kaley of Not An Editor. By the way, you guys should totally check out her blog and follow her for critiquing tips and excellent interviews with authors.

Harvey volunteered to hunt down Mary and force feed her rutabaga if she refuses to answer the meme questions. Let's see what Harvey's got for us.

Me: (taps on ear piece) Are we on? Hello? Harvey, can you hear me?

Harvey: Baaaa!

Me: Were you able to do the interview?

Harvey: Baaaa!

Me: Oh good. Alright, then. Take it away, Harvey m'boy!

What do you call your panties/underwear/undergarments? Do you have any commonly used nicknames for them?

I’d have to go with underwear, plain and simple. Somewhat boring, but the odd thing is? I don’t recall anyone of my friends or family members calling them anything different (must be a Midwestern thing). Except Grandpa, who on occasion could be heard referring to his skivvies.

Come to think of it, though, I do have to remind myself (every so often) that I wear Big Girl Panties, and can therefore do anything I put my mind to. Like writing a WiP. Thank heavens for big girl panties.

Have you ever had that supposedly common dream of being in a crowded place in only your underwear?

No. It’s always a dream about being stark nekkid. But I get those bizzaro wardrobe malfuntion elements, like I look down and I have nothing on, I panic and try to hide, and then I look down again, and voila! I have clothes. Ugly ones. But still—whew! Not naked. Until the next time I look down.

What is the worst thing you can think of to make panties out of?

Porcupine quills.

If you were a pair of panties, what color would you be, and WHY?

Skin colored. Because  then? If I have the naked nightmare, I can change the butt-nakedness into skin-colored skivvies. Sigh. I feel better already.

Have you ever thrown your panties/underwear at a rock star or other celebrity? If so, which one(s)? If not, which one(s) WOULD you throw your panties/underwear at, given the opportunity?

Haven’t, and don’t know if I would. However, if it were a full moon and someone forced me to do it, I might consider Alcide from HBO’s True Blood. Because I’d be his werewolf bride, and werewolves do not need skivvies. Word. 

You’re out of clean panties. What do you do?

Wear my husband’s boxers. But I would NOT scratch my…self.

If you could have any message printed on your panties, what would it be?



How many bloggers does it take to put panties on a goat?

Duh. One. I’d just explain to the goat that they’d stop having the nekkid in public nightmares if they put on panties.

Tag Four People and tell them why you are being so cruel to them.

Jeepers schmeepers. I’m so unskilled at the whole peer pressure thing. Hmm. Only if they want to—yanno—b e cool, like the rest of us in the goat posse. (How’s that?)

1.       Sophia Martin, because she was supposed to send me her WiP a while back and I’m still waiting. Ho. And hum.
2.       KD Sarge, because she knew the title to a charming children’s book that I couldn’t quite remember.
3.       Mary Frame because I have no idea how she got out of this one but still has the goat posse thing on her blog. #momlovesherbetter
4.   Jen Bennett because she's a new #goatposse member too.

5. Kellie M., since one of the #goatposse people told me to tag her. So Kellie, yeah, you're tagged. Don't shoot me, I'm only the messenger.   

I’m no good at math. Sigh.

Me: Thank you, Mary! Now you won't have to eat the rutabaga, thank goodness, since Harvey already ate it. Bad goat, Harvey, bad goat...


J. A. Bennett said...

hahaha. I already have it ready to go for tomorrow. Thanks for the lovely tag :)

Riley Redgate said...

XDDDD Oh, the #evilpantymeme continues... Harvey is a sneaky little goat, isn't he?

WELCOME ABOARD. Sheesh, it's like a hazing ritual!

Marybk said...

You're welcome, JA Bennett! You're such a prepared little goat.

Javid Suleymanli said...

OMG you made me laugh out loud! lol. Before reading the post, I just saw the first photo and lost control :D

A.M.Supinger said...

Alcide is the hottest of the hot! Forget those vamps :P Awesome job!

Small Town Shelly Brown said...

I loved the nekkid goat part and that awesome picture to go with it!

Ashley Nixon said...

ahahaha. This was SO entertaining!!

Bethany C. said...

Brilliant execution of the evilpantymeme. Bonus points for including the delicious Alcide. I'd howl at the moon for a run with him.

J. Lea Lopez said...

Love love love! The porcupine costume is adorable. And I laughed out loud at some of your answers, like not scratching your.... self. Hahaha.

Lydia K said...

Porcupine quills! I'm right with you, sister.

That smiling goat is creepy. It kind of freaks me out, so it's bit like a shot of espresso when I see it on Twitter. LOL!

Marybk said...

*BLUSH times infinity*
Thanks, everyone for stopping by, and thanks to Cherie for this great interview.

The pictures are all the doing of the beautiful and talented Cherie. Or, Harvey (I'm not actually clear on that).

Suzanne Payne said...

OMG..we're kindred goat spirits if your diggin' on Alcide. *sigh* Loved this! Welcome aboard the madness that is the #goatposse. We're a great bunch to lock horns with..lol ;)

Marewolf said...

Awesome!! Uh, did I not already do the evil panty meme? Hmmm...I've had so many meme's I'm not sure which ones I've done! Thanks Mary me dear for the tag, your answers are exceedingly brilliant (of course) :)

Jenny Phresh said...

YOU HAVE NOW JOINED THE DARK SIDE. I mean...that was great! Thanks for participating. My favorite question of this evil meme is the one that results in answers like "porcupine quills. Ai-yi-yi!

Jessie Humphries said...

I may be new to the blogosphere....but that was some seriously hilarious random fun.

Anonymous said...

Oh Alcide, be still my heart. Okay, it's not my heart that fancies him. Panties, indeed. PHEW!

This was fantastic! And how DID Marewulf escape? Good job roping her into the madness!

#goatposse forever!

julie fedderson said...

What awesome responses! I always wondered what the heck goatposse was--you all sound like a riot.

Anonymous said...

LOL! You PossePeeps are a stitch and it seems like your newly inducted will fit right in!

Thanks for the morning laugh.

Anita Grace Howard said...

Hah! This ROCKED! And how in the world did it escape my attention that Mare still hadn't done the panty meme?? Hmm. So glad she finally got tagged.

Mary, you made the goats proud! And LOL. Porcupine quills .... YEOWCH!

Carissa Elg said...

OMG! This is hilarious! I think I just spit coffee out my nose!

A. Lynden Rolland said...

Hilarious! I'm not answering these questions next- too tough of an act to follow! Well done, Mary! #longlivethegoatposse

Caitlin Vincent said...

Oh my goodness! I laughed so hard I think I died a little.
