What were you like as a kid?

I was more of a loner as a kid. I didn’t understand how social interaction worked. Either was too quiet and shy or I was too controlling, trying to be whomever I thought I ought to be.

I spent most of my time playing alone. And yet, I wanted to be part of a group, wanted friends even when I didn’t understand how to interact with more than one person at a time.

I don’t remember much of my early childhood directly, more from pictures and stories I was told. The main thing I remember was being happy playing alone.

Playing with my imaginary friends, some of whom are still with me today, still telling me their stories.

What are some things on your bucket list?

Funny how this idea of a bucket list has swept the world over the last few years. I never once thought of making a list of things I wanted to do before I die. I had a vague idea in my head, of course, but nothing definite. Now I seem to have an endless list.

Skydiving

Riding a horse on the beach

Living, or at least sleeping in, a tree-house

Ride in a hot-air balloon

Watch baby sea turtles go into the sea

Visit Scotland and Ireland

Live in England for 3 years

Live at the beach for half the year

Go to New Zealand and see the hobbit houses.

Sleep in a haunted house

Go dog sledding

Watch the Northern Lights from a glass igloo

Swim with dolphins

Experience zero gravity

And  on and on……

Anybody want to join me for an adventure?

What are five weird things you like?

It depends on how one defines weird. The dictionary says:

Definition of Weird 

Of strange or extraordinary character ODDFANTASTIC

Of, relating to, or caused by witchcraft or the supernatural MAGICAL

Concerned with or controlling fate or destiny : SOOTHSAYER

I’d add to that:

Little known, appreciated or misunderstood activities or interests. Nerdy.

I imagine most – normal – people would think Cosplay, D&D, and Renaissance Fairs are rather weird. Thus defined, I would say my ‘weird’ interests are:

  1. Role-playing – D&D, Vampires, Star Wars, Firefly, Phantom of the Opera and a bunch more.
  2.  Interest in magic and the supernatural as non-fiction, not fiction.
  3. Collecting and playing with model horses (Shhhhh – don’t tell anybody, but I name them, pedigree them and show them.)
  4. Fantasy fiction, both reading and writing – though this is not so weird anymore.
  5. Fascination with oddities, bother human and otherwise, living in the world.

I am sure my family and friends could name several more!

What weird things do you like?

What three things are you grateful for today?

Today I am thankful for my health, my home (to keep me out of endless days of rain), and my puppy, Evie. Short and sweet today:)

If you could switch lives with anybody, who would you choose?

Pete in The Three Investigator books or Charlie on My Side of the Mountain or Gansy in The Raven Boys.

Pete because he was always the character I associate with and liked the most. He was the muscles of the group, dense sometimes, but his bravery made up for all his short-coming. It may also be because I want a hidden hide-out/headquarters and to solve mysteries, too.

I loved My Side of the Mountain because of Charlie’s courage in setting off on his own, determined to live his life his way. I never had that courage as a child, or even a young adult. Probably not until my late 30s or early 40s. I envied him his freedom, his ability to live off the land and survive. Everything goes right in fiction most of the time, but that didn’t stop me from what his life in the real world.

I think, my first choice would be Gansy. If you haven’t read The Raven Boys, you should. Gansy is the type of character who imprinted himself on my soul and I still think about him often, his quest and his failures and successes. His journey.

Maybe, I’ve always a similar journey.

13 "Would You Rather..." Questions That Are Almost Impossible To Answer

Image from Pinterest.

  1. The year or the way I die? This is a hard question for me because, above all else, I don’t want to remain when my body and mind fail. I would say year so I could like to sometime like 3000, but if I had to live those years impaired, I’m not interested. But do I want to choose the way I die? Perhaps, I better choose this one. I would like to die in full mind and healthy body, peacefully in my sleep.
  2. Stadium or University named after you? Neither. I am not much for the dubious honor of having something named after me. Maybe just a horse or a favorite nature trail if I had to choose something.
  3. Free Apple products for free Wifi? I’m not much into brands, so I would have to choose the free Wifi.
  4. Fulfill your biggest wish or resolve your biggest regret? Biggest wish, of  course! Now what would that be? I think my biggest wish at this time of my life is to have the financial resources to live bill-free and doing whatever I wish.
  5. Private island or private jet? Island, definitely.
  6. Read minds or travel at light-speed? I would not want to read minds so it would have to be travelling at light-speed. Then I could visit my distant friends and places quickly. And I wouldn’t need the private jet!
  7. Million dollars in Amazon GCs or 100,00 dollars? I’d like to say the GC, because you can buy just about anything you need or want at Amazon, but cash in hand is always nice. I’m stuck on this question.
  8. Best friends with favorite celebrity or date crush for 2 years? For this, I would need to know who I would want to be friends with or who my crush might be. And does the two years end in breaking up, marriage, living together? So, let’s think. I don’t really have a celebrity crush, so who would I want to be friends with? Nathan Fillion maybe, or Valarie Berntinelli. Valarie, definately.
  9. Free gas for 25 years or your dream car? Free gas definitely. I have my island, remember, so I don’t really need a car.
  10. Ninja or Pirate? It would depend on whether I was living in my time as one or the other or in their time. In my time, a ninja because I’d rather be silent and unseen than drunk and loud!
  11. Continue with your life or restart your life? What a question! If I re-started my life with what I know now…. I could make so many changes. Take more risks. Live more life. But if I couldn’t know what I know, I wouldn’t want to change.
  12. Fame and wealth or Harry Potter? Fame and wealth. Well, not fame so much, but the wealth to live my life as I choose.
  13. Read minds or see the future? As said before, I don’t want to read minds so I guess it would be see the future, not that seeing the future thrills me much more. If I could the power on and off, either would be okay, but if I couldn’t control either I don’t want either.

Fun questions. Enjoy!!!
