Helllllo readers, it’s one of those day where I’m a little booked-out and I wanted to do something completely different and I stumbled across the 25 questions nobody asks tag and thought it sounded like a little bit of fun. Enjoy.
Do you sleep with your closet doors closed or open?
Why would you sleep with the doors open? (Unless there’s too much stuff to shut them – maybee then) I definitely sleep with the closet doors shut to keep the monsters in.
Do you take shampoo and conditioner bottles from hotels?
Yes, I’m a terrible person.
Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
Normally the sheets are falling off everywhere, I’m a terribly restless person.
Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
No, but I did witness one of my intoxicated friends pick up a sold house sign and dance with it before falling over with it. Those were the days.
Do you like to use post-it notes?
Not really, I prefer lists or big sheets of paper with lots of ideas. Post-it notes just get lost or stuck to one of your limbs. Sexy.
Do you cut out coupons but never use them?
I never cut out coupons but I think maybe I should – I just don’t really have/make time for it.
Would you rather be attacked by a bear or a swarm of bees?
I think bees, I’m not sure whether I would survive a bear attack really.
Do you have any freckles?
Yesssss all over the bridge of my nose and my cheeks!
Do you always smile for pictures?
DUCK FACE. Nah, I often do a couple of funny faces or a cheeky teeth smile.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
I think bad emailing practice; think how you would feel if you opened that email and it was horrible. I don’t like rude people very much.
Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
Allllllll the time, but I always lose count so there’s no point. Maybe it’s relaxing?
Have you ever peed in the woods?
Have you ever pooped in the woods?
Three letters: DOE
Do you ever dance when there is no music playing?
Yees, who doesn’t do a cheeky celebration dance once in a while? #holla
Do you ever chew on your pens and pencils?
Yep, and last week I saw someone chew on a pen I had chewed. I need to stop that, tis gross.
How many people have you slept with this week?
Well I always sleep in bed with Eeyore, so I guess one?
What size is your bed?
Doubleeee bed, although when T sleeps in it it might as well be half a single. Bloody starfishing.
What is your song of the week?
Kind of really loving Down Town by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
Is it ok for guys to wear pink?
It mean if it brings out the colour in their eyes then of course.. anyone can wear whichever colour they wish.
Do you still watch cartoons?
C’mon, Disney films, everyone watches them and if they don’t then they should. Stat.
What’s your least favourite movie?
Anything realllllllly scary!
Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had some?
I would buy things with it…sorrrrrrrrry
What do you drink with dinner?
Alllll of the wine.
What do you dip a chicken nugget in?
Barbecue sauce m8.
What is your favourite food?
MASHED POTATO. With tiny sausages if possible.
There you go: 25 questions nobody asks probably for good reason but just a little bit of fun. I now tag..
Bronagh at Bronagh’s Beauty and Books
It’s Friddddaaay *cheers* which means not only is it the weekend, but I have another book tag for you which is always a brilliant way to round off the week. I’ve been nominated for quite a few bookish awards in the past weeks but due to my utter adoration of the GBBO, I thought that the Pastry Book Tag was a little fitting for today’s posting. This tag was devised by Áine at ‘writing on a vintage typewriter’ which you should get have a wander through because it’s a lovely little blog. But first, pour yourself a cup of tea, grab a hob-nob and settle down for some bookish/cakey answers.
Croissant: Name a popular book or series that everyone (including you) loves.
The Harry Potter series by J K Rowling
It has to be really doesn’t it?
Macaron: Name a book that was hard to get through but worth it at the end.
Odd choice for this one but,
The Summer of Secrets by Sarah Jasmon
When writing books that move between time periods, they need to be spelled out to the reader so we don’t end up wondering where they are. This book did that and it took me a chapter or two to work out where I was. Although I found this book difficult to connect to I was glad to finish this.
Vol-au-vent: Name a book that you thought would be amazing but fell flat
Rachel’s Holiday by Marian Keyes
So I didn’t think this book would be amazing but I thought it would be an enjoyable and easy read. Turned out to be pretty horrible and tiresome.
Pain au chocolat: Name a book that you thought would be one thing but turned out to be something else.
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.
Although I didn’t know what to expect when reading this, what I did read wasn’t what I was expecting. Saying that, this was a book I really enjoyed and found intriguing to read. I recommended this to T to read and he thought it was something very different from what he tends to read. Thumbs up all round I would say.
Profiterole: Name a book or series that doesn’t get enough attention.
Pearshaped and Leftovers by Stella Newman
I adored both of these books and am yet to read the newest (but I’m sure I’ll really enjoy reading it.) I just don’t see these books darting around the ‘bloggersphere’ all too often and they are brilliant comforting, homey reads.
Croquembouche: Name a book or series that’s extremely complex.
Wolfhall by Hilary Mantel
I really struggled with this book and it was such a disappointment. I always think if a book needs a character list at the beginning you’ve got a pinch too many. I read a good chunk of this book but gave up before I got half way. I need to try again because I thought her book ‘An experiment in Love’ was brilliant.
Napoleon: Name a movie or TV show based off a book that you liked better than the book itself.
This one is so difficult but I pick
50 Shades of Grey by E L James
Both were pretty awful but this trumped the book by a mile.
Empanada: Name a book that was bittersweet.
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
This book was so sad but the tale was wonderfully and honestly told and the ending is just bittersweet through and through.
Kolompeh: Name a book or series that takes place somewhere other than your home country:
Madrid Metro by Abigail Kloss-Aycardi
This book is quite obviously set in Spain. It’s a short and sweet read which you can see my review of here.
Pate a Choux: Name one food from a book or series that you would like to try.
I think a foaming tankard of Butterbeer would do me nicely. TYVM.
I thought this tag was really special; no wishy-washy questions it’s a change from writing ten facts about yourself. There’s not that much to know about me. Brilliant tag, I now pass the cake onto Nicole at Sorry I’m Booked to complete said tag. *Cheers*
It’s a thunderous afternoon; the rain is drizzling and you can hear the long droning rumble of thunder. With your hair dripping of rain water you throw yourself into the nearest coffee shop. Warm and inviting, you huddle over to the counter, and smile at the Barista. With a comforting grin he asks your order and gestures to the slanted bookcase on the other side of the shop. You stumble over, coffee in hand, grab a book and settle into the warm corner seat at the back of the darkened shop….
So question; what do you order? and what book do you choose to read? (No limitations!)
