Happy Birthday Travis!!!! I’m so excited that we get to spend some time with him on such a big day, ’cause guess what!? Yep! He’s here right now and we’re going to get to know him just a little bit better today, before REALLY getting to know him, tomorrow with his POV in Walking Disaster. Just you wait. Travis’s POV rocked my world, and I can’t wait to post my gush-fest over how much I loved his book.
In the meantime… a little “Happy Birthday Travis video!!”
Now… let’s go interview him!
*tries not to stare directly at him for too long… swooning into an actual faint might not be considered professional. AND, Maryse!! Do. Not. Squee!!!*
Happy birthday, Travis!! 😀 I don’t want to keep you too long… *that’s not true at all. I want to lock him in here forever* … as I’m sure you’ve got a big day today, but I just wanna know a few fun things!
Travis: Thank you!
Maryse: Do you remember what you were thinking when you saw Abby for the first time?
Travis: Yeah, that she looked ridiculous. She was covered in blood from hair to hips, and her eyes were as big as saucers. The second she looked up and her eyes met mine, though. Man. It changed everything.
Maryse: Wow. What a lucky girl. Er… ummm…. Oh I know! Describe yourself in 3 words
Travis: Bad ass. Oh wait, that’s just two. Real bad ass.
Maryse: Hehe. Yeahhhhhh… Yes. You. Are. *grins* Okay. Describe Abby in 3 words
Travis: No one can describe Abby in just three words. She’s everything.
Travis: It was big, and shiny, and expensive. A soft square, and cushion cut, because no way was I putting a round diamond on Abby Abernathy. I don’t know, it just looked like it belonged on her finger.
Maryse: I bet it’s gorgeous. *like you* Do you still have your bike? Does Abby still ride on the back of it?
Travis: Hell yes, I have it. Every time the sun is shining, I’m on it, and Abby’s with me.
Maryse: *Ahhhh being on the back of Travis’s bike… Imagine?* *sigh* Erm… *stares blankly at her paper* Oh! Here’s one! What lessons have you learned after everything you’ve went through together?
Travis: That even people who have no business being together, or with anyone, can have a happy ending. That if it’s the real thing, love can change someone, and the right woman can make you want to be a better man.
Maryse: Yes!! You guys are so awesome together. So in love. Is there anything that you’ve never told Abby but would like to tell her now?
Travis: That she saved me.
Maryse: *stares longingly*
Travis: [smirk] …
Maryse: *blink blink*
Travis: *looks around uncomfortably* … [snaps fingers]
Maryse: *blush* Sorry. Lost my train of thought after that one.
Maryse: *clears throat* There was an enormous amount of pain for you and your brothers (and your father) after the tragic loss of your mother. And then, things started coming together. Happiest childhood memory?
Travis: Saturday morning cartoons with my brothers. Playing outside. That time me and the twins made fart noises behind the couch the first time Thomas brought a girl home.
Maryse: Ahhh yes. Typical boy behavior. I hope you guys outgrew that. 😉 What would you have been, if not what you are now?
Travis: A used car salesman. [laughs]. I don’t know. A firefighter, maybe?
Maryse.: Yep. A hot firefighter. I can see that. Er.. I’m sorry, did I just say that out loud?
Maryse: *grins* Do you miss being a fighter?
Travis: Some days yes. Some days no. The money was better, that’s for sure.
Maryse: Favorite food?
Travis: My Cajun Chicken Pasta, of course.
Maryse: *stomach growls loudly* It sounds delicious! Favorite guilty pleasure that nobody knows about you?
Travis: Tabloids. What is Brangelina doing? I gotta know!
Maryse: Wow! I never woulda thought. Okay, so… Let’s have a tequila shot together! *I could use one right about now… phew* Happy Birthday Travis!!!
Travis: I’d be honored. *holds up two shot glasses* You are my first blogger girlfriend, Maryse.
Maryse: *takes a shot glass* Awwww Travis, I bet you say that to all the bloggers! *grumbles under my breath* I hope I’m your only blogger girlfriend *grumble grumble*
*cheek smooch!!* You’ll always be my favorite, Travis!!
Maryse: Okay, tequila shot time! 😀
