Happy Friday, everyone, and welcome to a new round of random facts about the blogger. Why? Because, apparently and according to a Days of the Year website I often check for inspiration (and, well, the constant need to know useless things), today was Trivia Day! The point? To get to know each other just that little bit better along the way. And - ok, yes- I love fun Q&A’s. Can’t help it. Ready? Let’s go!
What was your favourite toy growing up?
This is going to sound silly and simple, but the toy I remember playing with the most was a box of wooden playing blocks. What’s more, I remember actually liking having to clean it up after playtime, because they would only fit back into the box when you neatly arranged all the shapes correctly. I’m guessing this is where the tiny perfectionist in me first showed her face.
If you could time travel, where would you go?
Either the roaring twenties or the late seventies/early eighties to catch a The Clash gig.
What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?
Oh, I’m going to be boring here and say moving out of my parents house and renting my own place? Although I actually didn’t think it was scary at the time, because I’d saved quite a nice sum. Now, after two years of living alone and paying the bills solo, however… Oh, dear. Haha!
You’ve had a bad day. What do you do to make yourself feel better?
Bad day as in emotionally? Try to talk about it with someone, listen to inspiring podcasts and sometimes I actually like music- or film-triggered good cries whenever I feel bad. Somehow that helps, no idea why.
Bad day as in physically tiring? Pamper night! An extra long shower with some music in the background, facial masks, candles, either a feel-good film or old-school favourite, and a glass of red wine within reach wherever I go. In other words? Nothing. I do nothing.
What are you listening to right now?
A playlist I put together featuring all my favourite music from Stranger Things. Bitchin’.
Which film sequel would you most like to erase from existence?
From the top of my head? The third X-Men film. Killing an iconic mutant (Cyclops) off-screen, I mean really? How dare you.
If you could shop for free, where would it be?
The local garden center (give me ALL the plants) or Lush.
Who is the kindest person you know?
That would be my mother. Without question.
If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be?
Carrie Fisher or Patti Smith.
It’s the New Year! What would be harder for you to give up; coffee or alcohol?
Oh, dear… I’m afraid it’s alcohol, because I could definitely swap my daily coffee for tea instead. That occasional glass of wine in the evening, however… Keeping that, thanks very much.
That’s it! Ten questions out of a whole bunch I found today. Now, I’d love it if you’d give it a go, of course. Pick out one (or two, three,… all of them) favourite question(s) and share your own answer on here! Have a fun or interesting question you would like to ask me yourself? Send it through, as well! ! I’ll either answer it in the comments, OR add it to the bunch and who knows it’ll be featured in the next random trivia post. ;)
Lots of love & have a great weekend!
