So after being put forward for a bit of blog interaction via the Neat blogger award I actually had a lot more fun to complete this than expected and I think I have surprised myself even…so thank you Muskan for the nomination – Check out her pretty awesome blog HERE
My answers to the questions:
1) Your favourite book and why?
I have an awful lot of ‘favourite books’ however one of them has to be
The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson.
I think I should admit to judging this book at first by its pages and decided I had to have it on the basis that not only did it’s cover rock but it also had black page edges which just kind of sealed the deal for my younger inner Goth.
Though if you actually read this book you will find out that it isn’t just all for show, the outside appearance is actually a good visual for the story, and the story itself is pretty amazing, I would not say that I am usually a ‘romance’ reader but this book had me hooked on believing in love again without actually being pinned as a romance story.
It’s exciting, surprising and addictive, and my copy is extremely dog eared now..but I might just have to dig it out once again.
2) If you could have dinner with anyone in the world right now, who would it be?
I know this is where I’m supposed to put in some inspirational writer or something …but c’mon it will obviously be Johnny Depp .. because Johnny Depp!
3) One song you like?
Only one? — Balance beam by Blue October then – All of their songs are just so poetic
4) Pet peeve(s) of yours?
People who cast judgements on what other people are doing when it does not concern them. The way I see it is everyone should be free to do as they wish so long as it doesn’t impact negatively on others
5) Three words to describe you?
Annoying, opinionated, honest
6) One thing you can’t live without?
Water! .. and not only in a literal way. I love baths, rain, the sea, lakes .. it’s just so relaxing.
7) Favourite piece of clothing you own?
A long black velvet skirt that I have had way too long and has a small hole that I remember is there every so often…but it’s so comfy that I can’t throw it out
8) Your favourite movie and why?
Hmm – One of my very favourites would be – What Dreams May Come
It’s just such a great film dealing with tragedy and love rolled into one . It also has Robin Williams starring which helps make it great.
9) What would you be if, you could have been anything? (As a profession).
I kind of have to say author here don’t I .. though I do think being the person that operates the bulldozers would also be quite a therapeutic job
10) Your favourite superhero.
There was a fair bit of deliberation over this since it would depend which version we are talking about. I mean the comics are different to the films and the films are different to the TV shows, and then you have the artists and actors causing issue and so on and so on.
So for arguments sake I am going to opt for Wonder woman since she pretty much kicks ass which ever version and I spent a fair bit of my childhood running around with tinfoil cuffs trying to swing a lasso made of strawberry laces.
