11 Questions About Me Answered

12 Hours to Bedtime (great blog by the way) tagged me, and asked me these 11 questions:


1.Which James Bond would you rush off into the sunset with?
2.If you had to eat the same meal for dinner for a whole month, what would you eat?
3.Which Olympic event (Summer or Winter) would you compete in?
4.What is the most fascinating city or country you have ever visited?
5.Name one piece of advice you will give your child when they start dating.
6.Have you ever had your fortune told or your palm read? If so, did they get your future right?
7.What was the last dream you remember having?
8.What is your least favourite household chore?
9.For you Twilight fans out there: Team Edward or Team Jacob?
10.Are you still in touch with your childhood friends?
11.Do you take a hot water bottle to bed at night?

So here are my answers to them:

1.Which James Bond would you rush off into the sunset with?
Sean Connery obviously.  

Although I would request that he looks like THIS:
Legendary: Sena played suave British agent James Bond for almost a decade, and appeared in seven hit films<br>

And NOT like THIS!!!

Although of course I would not mind if he looked like this:


Anyhow, it is immaterial as it is ALL about the accent so perhaps he could just phone me!

2.If you had to eat the same meal for dinner for a whole month, what would you eat?
Salad, that is the only thing I could tolerate having THAT much of.  It would have to be a wholesome one obviously, with potato salad, lots of good green leaves and some tasty dressing, and salad cream and boiled eggs and........ the list goes on...
3.Which Olympic event (Summer or Winter) would you compete in?
Definitely 100% Summer.  I am to be found next to an open fire when it is cold, if and when I can find one!
4.What is the most fascinating city or country you have ever visited?
Tokyo/Japan all the way.  I found my SPIRIT in the budhist museum in Ueno Park there (literally got tears in my eyes with each budha statue I looked at), I felt my soul in all of the Temples I visited, and I even went to Disney Land - I have never met anyone who knew that that part of the world even has one - well I personally have not been to the nearer ones and I wasn't going to miss the opportunity to go when I was in the same city. Japan is also where I got my first digital camera, but sadly none of the photos are on THIS computer.  They have their version of Tottenham Court Road LOL! It's called Akihabara!  I got THE first model of Sony Cybershot there (in 2004) and now I am on my 3rd, with all 3 being Sony Cybershots.  Yes I am loyal.  That's just me! Been with the same fella for 25 years too!
5.Name one piece of advice you will give your child when they start dating.
Ditch the bitch!
6.Have you ever had your fortune told or your palm read? If so, did they get your future right?
Of course.  This is a natural and frequent thing for me personally to do.  Fortune was done via an astrological reading, which predicted when Aaron would be born, which is why I was not worried about infertility.  A hand reading last year predicted something that has just started to happen in recent weeks since November.  I can't say more at this point.
7.What was the last dream you remember having?
I had a very detailed one last night.  I remember waking at 7 a.m. and going back to sleep till 8 a.m. so I could finish it, thus making us late for nursery - only trouble is I cannot remember any of it now.
8.What is your least favourite household chore?
All of them.  Actually it was hoovering.  ALWAYS hoovering.  I would literally do it once a month.  Now, I find it so easy to nip around with my portable Dyson DC59 I now hoover about 3 times a day.  I can even do the stairs, which with a big upright previously was always Daddy's job.  Life changing. I mentioned it in my last #LiskaLoves blog post.
9.For you Twilight fans out there: Team Edward or Team Jacob?
Definitely Edward.  I was a massive Twilight fan and read all of the books, watched all of the movies.  I also got my Mum to read them and she loved them.
10.Are you still in touch with your childhood friends?
Sadly only one or two, which I regret an awful lot.  You have given me the nudge I needed by asking me this question.  I want to pin down my best friend Raquel, from secondary school.
11.Do you take a hot water bottle to bed at night?
Of course not! Does ANYBODY still do that??????????????????

So what do you think? Do you know me a little more now? ;-)

  12. Aw, poor Sean - he looks so sweet in those DM pics! I'm with you on the salad, totally. And I too HATE hoovering. With a PASSION!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Love your advice in number 5! I have to disagree on JB though, for me it is the gorgeous Mr Craig all the way, though if he had Sean Connery's voice I might just explode with lust!
