11 Random Facts about CP Bialois

  • I’m a dog lover, but 13 years ago I was introduced to two girls that stole my heart making me a cat lover.
  • I love to sit in a dark room and listen to music to relax and let my inner child play.
  • I’m a chocoholic. Anything with chocolate (preferably Hersheys) will not survive long around me.
  • I’m a shy, introverted person unless I have something to say. Good luck in getting me to shut up when I get going. 🙂
  • Sleeping is my favorite hobby and I don’t indulge as much as I think I should,
  • I’m a huge Captain America fan and comic geek.
  • I’m a history nerd and would live off the History channel if I was allowed to.
  • I once cut my dad’s hair on a whim. Believe me, I never did that again. 😛
  • I’m a softie at heart, but one usually needs to get through my surface BS to find the real me.
  • I’m extremely loyal to friends, but if we’re being chased by zombies I will so trip you… maybe.

Questions from Roz

  1. How old were you when you first fell in love? Taking away Daisy Duke as I was too young to understand what love means, I was nineteen and working at Burger King. We were together for nearly a year before going our separate ways.
  2. Who is the most influential person in your life today? I have to say my dad. We’re so much alike that we can’t spend more than five minutes in the same room without fighting and that made it difficult to relate to him as I grew up. As time goes on, I’ve learned to appreciate what he did for me without expecting a thank you. A day doesn’t go by that I don’t impart some piece of wisdom he taught me onto something in my life.
  3. What do you regret the most in your life? My biggest regret is not being a better son and making my parents lives a little better and easier.
  4. What’s the best thing about living where you live? Knowing it’s going to be sunny and warm every morning when I wake up. Add to that I don’t have to shovel snow anymore and I’m pretty content.
  5. What are you most proud of in your life? Without a doubt it’s becoming a writer. It wasn’t something I ever sought out to accomplish until a couple of years ago but I can’t think of anything I’d rather be doing.
  6. What is the best gift you ever received? Oh boy, this is going to date me somewhat. lol It’s a two-fold answer so bear with me. When I was a kid, my dad liked to take me to the movies and the newstand to get comics. For my fourth birthday my parents bought me a bunch of Star Wars toys. They were the coolest things I ever saw and I played with them for months afterwards. When summer came around, my dad told me there was a sci-fi movie at the local theater and asked if I wanted to go. Of course I said yes, and I saw the original Star Wars movie for the first time. It brought the toys to life like never before and I couldn’t wait to recreate what I saw on the big screen.
  7.  When you spend money on yourself, what do you indulge in the most? That’s easy, books and dvds. lol I’ve had to curb that over the last few years as our house is kinda small and we ran out of places to put them. 🙂
  8. Would you rather read a classic novel or see the movie? That’s a tough one. Honestly, I’d have to stick with the book as they’re filled with more imagery you can absorb faster than a movie. Still, I wouldn’t turn down a chance to watch Treasure Island or Old Yeller. 🙂
  9. Has a major occurrence recently changed your life? Getting married. We’re closing in on our two year anniversary since my wife decided to keep me around on a more permanent basis.
  10.  If yes, was it good or bad? If no, what major occurrence would you like to experience? I’ll have to go with it being good or the wife will kill me. lol j/k.
  11. Do you donate to any charity, and if so, which one(s)? We donate old clothes and canned goods to the Vietnam Veterans.

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.

    I love spending money on books too, especially notebooks. My family doesn’t understand, especially my younger brother. He thinks it’s a waste of money, but oh well, he doesn’t get the life of a writer LOL.

    Keep smiling,
    Yawatta

      Oh yeah my wife’s the same way. Whenever we go anywhere they sell books or 5 subject notebooks I hear, “We can’t afford it and we don’t have room.” It was due to that argument I managed to convince her I needed a kindle. lol
