Here are the questions for Week One:
1. We meet some of Charley's ghostly "buddies," do you believe you have ever had a ghostly encounter?
2. Charley named her jeep Misery. Have you ever named your vehicles? What did you name them?
3. Charley says her name "...brooks no opposition. It takes shit from no one." What do you think your name says about you to strangers? Is there a different name that you think would suit you better?
4. Charley says her best friend Cookie is "like Kramer from Seinfeld, only not so nervous, like Kramer might have been on Prozac." Give us your best description of your best friend. How would they would describe you?
5. Garrett is reluctant to believe in Charley's abilities, how would you react if a friend divulged to you that they can see and speak with the dead?
Also for fans of Darynda Jones (if you are not, you should be, she is awesome!) you can join her new street team and be a Grimlet! For all the details click here.
