Thursday Thirteen #56 — Trevor? Bored?


It’s been a hectic Wednesday in Chez Susan. That has me longing for some quiet, unassigned moments. Trevor thought he’d pipe up and share some suggestions with me.

Thirteen Ways in Which Trevor Whiles Away the Time

Thanks to Casa Sosegad for the awesome header!

1. in strip joints like Moon Shadows

2. reading catalogs from Lyric‘s competitors and deciding what to bug her into ordering for him

3. practicing with Daniel. It’s easier without Mitchell‘s fancy-assed rhythms and attitude.

4. getting stoned, usually with Eric. It’s one of the few times they get along.

5. picking his nose — or so he says, but the pasttime is probably more along the lines of irritating others.

6. tinkering with his Vincent.

7. picking on Mitchell.

8. eating: at Harry’s Hoagies, Roach’s, or conning Val or Sonya Voss into cooking for him.

9. checking out girls and picking them up and bring them to … their homes (for quicker getaways)

10. dreaming of how big ShapeShifter will be

11. crusing town on his Vincent, looking for trouble.

12. Check out the competition playing around town

13. When all else fails, take a nap.

Get the Thursday Thirteen code here!

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Uhh, I think I’ll only take him up on that last one, although heaven knows I’m itching to hear some live music.

As always, to learn more about a character, click on their name when it’s orange and you’ll be zipped to a cool bio page with links to other outtakes. Or scroll on down for this week’s offerings: Beached Whales and Letter G. Happy reading and may all our days quiet down a bit.

    The only way to get lost, darling, is lost in the archives as you catch up! I highly recommend it!

    I don’t think I’d ever get lost.. unless I get knocked in the head… and put somewhere.. 🙁 Tragic, I know… but most of the time, I always seem to have an internal compass which points to the right way 🙂

    Remind Trevor that he can pick his friends, he can pick his nose, but that he shouldn’t pick his friend’s nose…

    Nice to learn more about this character. Great stuff.

    Hanging at the strip joint sounds like a good way for Trev to while away his time. I like his choices at #s 8, 9, and 13 also.

  38. Denise Patrick

    November 29, 2007 3:10 pm

  39. Xakara

    November 29, 2007 3:46 pm

    Mmm…naps. They don’t actually work for me since it takes too long for me to fall asleep that it no longer qualifies as a nap. But the cuddle time is good enough to make up for the sleep. :)BR/BR/~X (The originator of the Cuddle Party *wink)

    This TT made me laugh. Trevor certainly knows how to entertain himself. Picking his nose . . . and hanging out at strip bars . . . and my favourite: dreaming how big Shapeshifter will be.

  44. Natalie

    November 29, 2007 7:41 pm

    I’m so confused, I don’t even know what to say. I think I’ll take the advice of #13 and take a nap! LOL!BR/BR/Come visit my A HREF=”” REL=”nofollow”Thursday Thirteen/A if you get a chance. 🙂

    I’m new to your blog, from Frigga and TT today, so I have no idea who Trevor is, but my first thought was he’s either a guy you know, or a cat. Or it could be he’s the type of guy they call a Tomcat. I’ll have to read more to delve into your blog world. 🙂

  46. spyscribbler

    November 29, 2007 9:42 pm

    You know, he must have star power. I don’t know how or why it happened, but somewhere along the road I seem to have developed a whisper of a crush on Trevor. 🙂

    When all else fails, take a nap. BR/BR/This is a mantra I could live by too!BR/BR/Stop by my Coulda Woulda Shoulda NaBloPoMo edition and vote for my next entry. BR/BR/Happy TT!

    Thanks for the TT holla!BR/BR/BTW, yours was one of the ones I clicked when I went looking at other people’s TT’s. I’m starting to realize just how tired I was when I was reading them, LOL! BR/BR/I LOVE your TT this week. What a GREAT way to work with a character’s identity! I’ll definitely have to think about using it as a technique at least in my notebooks, because I can see how it can really help you explore the mind of your characters!!! :-)BR/BR/Thanks again for the holla!
