A few weeks ago, my good friend Sarah tagged me for the Blue Sky Tag, so I thought I’d slip this little post in here today for your enjoyment. Consider it a little ‘get to know me better’ sort of thing.
These questions are totally random (and some of them had me groaning over them for a long time before they were answered) but I hope you enjoy them anyway. See how many of these answers you can guess before reading them. 😉
Thanks again, Sarah, and let’s dive right in!
1. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
I like to think that I already have a superpower—the ability to craft stories. 😛 As a friend said last week when we were talking:
“Not all superheroes wear capes. Some just write incredibly fast.”
Aside from that…can I take the superpower to not have to sleep? (I say, as I stay up late writing this blog post. *cough*)
2. What sorts of things make you laugh?
All sorts of things make me laugh. I’m a very laugh-ish person. Accents, jokes, talking with friends. All of those can leave me in anything between giggles and laughing so hard I’m crying.
A few things that make me laugh:
– Hanging out with friends.
– Everyone around me being smiling and happy.
– Funny stories.
– Me making a fool of myself.
3. If you had to live in a time period different than the present, which would you choose and where?
To be honest, the future doesn’t look like it’s getting any better, so I’d probably go into the past somewhere. All times have their struggles and downsides, but still. Maybe I’ll take just after world war two. That doesn’t sound too bad.
4. What’s your favourite instrument?
I’m going to narrow it down to the instruments I play, because that makes this question a little easier. Flute is nice, however it involves cleaning every single time after I play it. Violin is cool, but can also have problems with strings playing up. Ukulele is an endlessly happy instrument, which is also cool. Guitar is easy because I can just pick it up and play it whenever I want to. Piano can be fun, but I need to actually get back to teaching myself more of it, because otherwise I only have a limited amount of things I can play.
From all that indecisive list…I’ll pick violin probably.
5. How would you react if somebody replied with “K”?
6. If you were stuck on a deserted island and you could only bring one thing, what would it be, and why?
An amphibian plane.
That would have the manual in the cockpit so I could touch up on my flying skills, and plenty of fuel, and radio connection so I could message someone if I crashlanded in the middle of nowhere or something.
Obviously a WWI biplane would be cooler, but an amphibian is more practical.
Honestly, I think I just do these tags so you can all see how geeky I am. 😛 (Well…to be honest, I kind of do, because I do them to share a bit about myself and I am geeky and dorky.)
7. If you had to choose between being a ninja or a superhero, which one would you pick?
(Totally stealing MEM’s question, I know, but it was far too good not to pass on!)
Coming from someone who has just written a novel with superheroes and a ninja…
How dare you ask me this question. xD
Hmm, I’ll take superhero. Because if you’re a superhero then you can also be a ninja, but if you’re a ninja you don’t get the choice of being a superhero as well. I’ll be the friendly neighbourhood Pizza Ninja. 😛
8. If you could have dinner with any 3 people (dead or alive), who would they be?
Ooh dear me. If I could have dinner with any 300 people I would choose all my lovely, wonderful readers and friends because you’re all so amazing and I want to hang out with you. Narrowing it down to 3 is much harder though. I’m going to pick alive people because a) that is actually doable b) it’s easier to pick then. 😛
Nadine Brandes is one…and how about Katie Grace…and for a third…Hope Ann.
Phew. There. Picked three people. Now all the people that I didn’t pick are clamouring through my brain. Help. I just want to have dinner with all of you.
9. Is there a hobby/skill that you’ve always wanted to try but never did?
Hang gliding. I don’t know if that counts as a hobby or skill, but agh. It would be so cool to do it. Just the idea of soaring above the world and experiencing God’s creation in a new and different way. Just thinking about it makes me excited.
10. What’s the worst (or best, depending how you look at it) pun you can think of?
I think my favourite pun to date is the pun I told in my dream. Because it proves that I can be humorous and asleep at the same time, and that amuses me endlessly. It went like this…
Me: *standing in a cemetery*
Me: *leans over toward the person standing next to me*
Me: This situation is graver than I realised.
My subconscious self was groaning and cracking up with laughter at the same time. When I woke up the next morning, that was all that I could remember about my dream and I kept snickering every time I thought of it.
11. Think of a person. What song do you associate with them?
My friend Sarah—the lovely person who tagged me for this in the first place—was the first to spring to mind. As for a song…most probably ‘To The Dreamers‘ by For King and Country. The first time I heard that song, I thought of Sarah, even though I wasn’t entirely sure why.
To the dreamers
Hanging onto hope by a thread
To the soulful
Heart open hopeful
Keep on charging ahead
That brings us to the end of the tag! I’m not going to officially tag anyone, but you know I love to hear about you. Enough of me, I want to know your answers now. If you want to do this tag, please go ahead! (and drop a link to your post in the comments so I can read it 😉 )
What song do you associate with a specific person? What sort of things make you laugh? Tell me all about yourself!
