I have been tagged by the wonderful katiescottage and have faithfully filled out her questions:
1.) Do you enjoy horseback riding?
Yes. I love it. I used to have riding lessons. But then I fell ill, stayed in bed, got out of bed, had a lesson in the rain, got yelled at in the rain and had a horse that wanted to throw me.
It was a bad day.
2.) Do you prefer Charlotte Bronte or Jane Austen?
Oh crumbs. Do you want to know a secret? Lean in. A little closer. *whispers something inaudible*. And that’s why it will be Charlotte Bronte every time.
3.) Are you right-handed or left-handed?
4.) What is your favorite sport?
I enjoy watching skeleton racing, ice skating and that sort of thing. Oh, and rugby (in small quantities – too much of a good thing can be bad for your mental health).
5.) What is the most unusual thing you have ever done?
Tapped a burglar on the shoulder in the dead of night and called him Mum. It made sense at the time!
6.) Do you prefer the mountains or the seaside?
Can I have both? Please? Though truthfully, I think I would have to choose mountains. There is something timeless and majestic about them.
7.) How tall are you?
I’m practically the shortest in my family.
8.) Do you prefer cats or dogs?
Can I have both? Because I love both. One day I shall own a cat. It shall be called Archibald and it shall be my Archibald. (Too much?)
9.) Can you sing?
By golly I can, and do. Whether I can sing well is another matter.
10.) Do you prefer classic Sherlock Holmes or the contemporary Sherlock?
I like the clever way they’ve adapted everything in BBC Sherlock, but you can’t really beat Basil Rathbone. Not really. (Though I can’t say I’m a complete authority on the matter, I’m more of a Poirot/Marple fan).
Now, I believe I am supposed to nominate ten other bloggers to answer ten more questions. I am choosing to forgo this (breakz rulez) and nominate anyone who reads this post and has a blog. (But if you don’t have a blog, please do shoot them over to me by email, I’m always interested in
stalking getting to know the patient folk who do me the honour of reading this blog).
And the next ten questions for you to answer? Here they be:
Do you like hedgehogs? // Have you ever accidentally tripped over your own leg? // If you could suddenly pick up a musical instrument and make your hearers weep from the vast emotion you summon, what would it be? // Cold or hot, which extreme weather would you rather suffer in? // Tea or coffee? // Roses or carnations? // Would you rather be chased by a hungry lion or a mad bull? // Do you have any scars? // E-book or paperback? // Favourite or favorite?
Have a marvelous weekend!
