That devilish Norrie, who hides under her blankie, a lot, has nominated me to be grilled, so be warned, you could be so bored you fall asleep mid-sentence …
#1 Do you believe in ghosts?
I know what you’re thinking, no one in their right mind who studied science at Uni could possibly believe in ghosts, well, you’d be wrong. I do believe … eh, sort of. There was a ‘presence’ in our family home (no matter where we lived) that my Dad referred to ‘It’ as Fred—yes, the ghost was named. My mother claimed it was one of her great aunts. Whoever it was, things happened. Unexplainable things.
#2 Have you ever sneaked out of the house to go to a party in your wild teen years?
Oh dear, I am soooo boring when it comes to my rebellious teen years. I left home at 17, so in answer to that one, eh, no.
#3 What’s your take on flowery food? (Lavender biscuits, wild flowers in salads, and so on). Yey or nay?
Where’s the bacon?
#4 What’s a book that you thought was kind of trashy but you still enjoyed?
Trashy? Oh, as in something like The Carpetbaggers by Harold Robbins? I think that might have been trashy, but read it anyway.
#5 Imagine it’s time for a cookie. Do you dip it in milk, sip coffee with it, or munch on it in its dry glory?
Hmm, let’s get scientific here, each cookie (biscuit) should be properly eaten in the correct manner ascribed to the type of biscuit being munched on. Rich Tea must definitely be ‘dunked’ in tea, Earl Grey, hot. A McVitie’s chocolate digestive should be nibbled with a good cup of arabica coffee, Nescafe instant will do. And the only biscuit that shall be eaten without a drink must certainly be a shortbread, you know, because of all that glorious buttery goodness. Right?
#6 Would you say you are a morning person?
That would be a yes, I prefer to get up early, and go to be bed early.
#7 Winter sports. Yey or nay?
I live in a city that enjoys (?) six (6) months of winter weather, what do you think? If you don’t play hockey, snowshoe, ski, skate, toboggan, horse sleigh, or visit the Quebec Carnival, you’ll spend six months inside your apartment going stir-crazy.
#8 Has it ever happened that you liked a film or series adaptation of a book? If so, which book was it?
I liked the movie versions of the Divergent series of books, as I love the visuals. So yeah.
#9 Do you find house chores (cleaning, dish-washing, etc.) relaxing, or necessary evil?
If I could truly get away with it, I would hire a service to come in and do it all for me. But, as it is, I do my own, and blast the music … LOUD!
#10 Do you chill in your pjs all day when you don’t need to leave the house?
Hey, have you been spying on me? How did you know I live in my specially bought pjs?
#11 What was the last book that knocked your socks off?
Oh, easy, that has to be THE KINGDOM OF COPPER by S.A. Chakraborty. Not only did it blow my socks off, I’ve yet to find them since! Ha! Ha!
