A liebster is a thing where people basically ask me questions about myself, then I have to pick more people to ask questions too. I got liebstered twice so feel it's probably time to respond. My first nomination came from Leoarna at http://notdifferentbutinteresting.wordpress.com/ . She asked me these things:
1. You’re a blogger. That much is self-evident. But why do you blog? And, in the time you’ve been blogging, have your reasons for doing it changed?
I started blogging to keep track of the funny things the Boy did. Now I have a Bear too. He's also hilarious. My blog amuses me, and records little things I'd otherwise forget. It's a bonus that other people like it too.
2. What story does your family always tell about you?
When I was a child I didn't really eat. Well, not in a conventional manner. I used to store unwanted food in my cheeks like a hamster to dispose of later.
3. Social media; ‘in’, or ‘out’, and why?
Neither really. I'd like to be in, well, maybe dip a toe in. I wouldn't, for example, use real names etc on my blog or post nudie pictures of my boys on facebook. I'm also very easily confused by twitter/blog websites/life.
4. Which television or radio show would you like to go to the recording of, and why?
Dexter. Because it's my latest tv obsession. I wish there was a deeper, more thoughtful reason, but there isn't.
5. Leonardo da Vinci said, ‘Where there is shouting there is no true knowledge.’ What are you truly knowledgeable about, that, perhaps, you just don’t talk about that much?
I like to pretend I'm knowledgeable about medical stuff. I'm not. I've just been injured a lot.
My next set of questions are from the lovely, ginger Ruth over at http://ruthpovey.com/liebster
1.If you could meet you, but ten years younger, what advice would you give yourself?
That it will all be ok.
2.It’s been a rough day – do you need company, or time alone?
Company, but silent non-talking company.
3.A book that changed you?
The exorcist. Has freaked me out for life.
4.Any recent embarrassing moments?
Many. Most involving the Boy and his big mouth. At the doctors recently for example, a man got called in to see the doctor.
Boy 'Mummy, that man seeing the doctor?'
Me 'Yes Boy'
Boy 'Has he got a sore willy?'
Me 'Erm...I don't think so.'
Boy 'Ah, ok, ok, a sore bottom?'
Me 'Yes, why not....'
5.What does a typical Saturday look like for you?
Vacuuming, Beast walking, Tesco going, food cooking. Although yesterday I got tattooed. Nice break from routine and all that.
6.Favourite place to be, outside of the house?
At the park, letting the Beast and the Boy run wild and free.
7. How do you choose what to write about?
As I said before, I write about things that amuse me. Little things, that otherwise I'd forget.
8. Who inspires you?
The Husband, The Boy, The Bear...not so much the Beast...
9.What sort of music comes out of your speakers?
All kinds of random crap, from Christian worship music, to the Rolling Stones, to the top 20 (Dirty stinking base)
10.How do you feel about roller coasters?
I like them. A lot. And am counting the centimeters til Boy is big enough to join me on them.
11.Socks. Sensible or robots?
Matching is a good start. I also like ones with reindeer on. Unfortunately they're only acceptable at Christmas.
Random facts about myself...
1.I am a vegetarian.
2.I'm currently crocheting a blanket the size of a small planet.
3.I haven't had unpainted toe nails in a number of years.
4.I have a real life degree in Creative Writing. Sadly, this isn't used for anything productive.
5.I occasionally fart and blame the Beast.
Here are my questions...
1. Do you like pancakes?
2. What are your thoughts on horse burgers?
3. If you could own any animal in all the land what would it be?
4. Crafting. Yes or no. If yes, what?
5. Most hated childrens tv program.
