I got nominated by Natasha from Oblio and Arrow for the Liebster Award, thank you
@Natasha I love the movie Lost Boys too! Although I didn’t watch it at Christmas time
The idea of the Liebster Award is to introduce newer blogs (with less than 200 Bloglovin Followers) to a wider audience, and give the bloggers a chance to share something about themselves.
These are the questions that Natasha asked:
1) If you could swap lives with someone for just one day, who would it be?
A. I’d like to be a handsome man for one day.
B. Being able to surf would be nice!
C. I’d totally want to try peeing while standing up.
2) What’s the best present you have ever received?
Metin funded our trip to Berlin, that was pretty nice! We even got to see a Giant Panda in the Berlin Zoo.
3) Do you think any kind of afterlife exists?
No I don’t. But I do believe that the person who dies (temporarely) leaves some energy behind. The day after my grandfather passed away our TV was turned off while we where watching, and both my grandmother and aunt had a figurine that suddenly moved. He was always acting like some sort of clown/magician, so it was very typical ^_^
My grandfather as volunteer firefighter
4) What is your pet hate?
That would be spiders, although I realize that they don’t classify as pets ;) Also I have problems with caged animals that hardly get out. I once adopted a Vlaamse Reus -a giant bunny- that the owner originally wanted to turn into a Christmas meal :( Buffy was adorable, but I found it hard that she lived in a relatively small cage, so I ended up adopting her out to a woman who’s rabbits lived freely in her backyard.
5) If you could save just one animal species, what would it be?
Cats, because they are awesome, but unfortunately they are totally aware of this fact.
PRRRR, stroke me a little more my servants
6) What is the most regrettable item of clothing you’ve ever owned?
(Bonus points for a photo!)
A long knitted scarf. Usually I wear skirts, but this one particular day I went to a client and decided to wear jeans. The business appointment went well and I was merrily making my (long) way home, when -almost home- a boy stopped me. He told me that my scarf disappeared between my legs and it looked like I had a tail
*no photo, but just imagine an unintended furry-like person*
7) If you had one wish, what would it be?
I would wish that no-one would have a disease anymore and die at a respectable age.
To me it would be great if I could kiss the migraines and unhealthy skin goodbye.
8) What year would you travel to if Doc Brown offered you a ride in the DeLorean?
I’d ask Doc Brown to take me to 1972. I would purchase a house, tons of Kenner Blythes, keep one NRFB and sell the others for a lot of money. And if possible I would have a look at my parents at the time.
9) What’s the nicest thing you’ve ever done?
Probably singing on stage. At the time it felt like the worst thing to do, being so out of my comfort-zone. Also it took me some wine, but in the end I was glad I did it.
10) A radioactive spider has bitten you: what super power would you hope to contract?
I would like laser eyes.
11) Who is the weirdest celebrity you’ve ever fancied?
Though question, I don’t think that I ever fancied someone really weird. But I did fancy Koen Wauters (a Belgian singer) when I was younger.
There’s so much wrong with this picture, I don’t even know where to start… A year later I finally got decent wallpaper in my room and the poster was taken down by my (male) friends, haha. As you can see I had no sense of fashion whatsoever at the time.
11 random facts about me
- I like to sing aloud, especially under the shower.
- I’ve been a singer in three bands, none of them lasted very long ;)
- No print design goes unnoticed without me trying to guess the font type.
- I’ve got a big pink Alpacasso plush in my bedroom
- I graduated as school teacher, not as webdesigner.
- IMHO hoarding books on the iPad also classifies as a hobby.
- It’s so hard to get out of bath that sometimes I’ll lay in it for up to two hours (O_o).
- Cleaning actually soothes me, but sometimes I don’t clean the toilet bowl downstairs for weeks (sorry visitors).
- When someone bumps into to me I (unconsciously) give them a funny look. It probably looks very scary, because even gigantic guys will apologize.
- At the dentist I lie about the frequency with which I floss my teeth.
- I’m scared of heights and always have to walk on the right when going downstairs. So when Metin suggested to walk up the Eiffel-tower, it wasn’t a very romantic situation to me.
