In the meantime, though, here are 50 questions that I’ve been recently asked by a young admirer, a bit silly, but couldn’t we all do with a bit more silliness?
1.) Apple juice or orange juice? — Orange, definitely.
2.) Are you a morning or night person? — Morning, though others may disagree.
3.) Which do you prefer, sweet or salty foods? — It depends on how I am feeling. But I have a sweet tooth.
4.) Are you a collector of anything? — Books
5.) If you could have any superpower, what would it be? — Always thought having a Lasso of Truth would be really cool and useful.
6.) What is usually your first thought when you wake up? — I’m still alive!
7.) What do you usually think about right before falling asleep? — Depends on the day I’ve had.
8.) What’s your favourite colour? — Yellow!
9.) Do you believe in extra-terrestrials or life on other planets? — Yes.
10.) Do you believe in ghosts? — Of course. The ghosts of our past come to haunt us on occasion. But yes, I do think there is a possibility that ghosts do exist.
11.) Ever been addicted to a video/computer game? Which one(s)? — Nope.
12.) Have any bad habits? — Yes, but I’m not telling. 😉
13.) Which bad habits, if any, drive you crazy? — Oh come now, if I didn’t answer the last, do you really think I’ll answer this one?
14.) List 1 thing you wish you could change about yourself: — My shyness. No really.
15.) Any tattoos or piercings? — Ears pierced and a discreet tattoo.
16.) What personality traits do you look for in a partner? — Ah, now here’s a question I’ll happily answer. A good partner should always be honest with him/herself, as well as their date; have unwavering morals and ethics, but still retain a good sense of humor; have confidence, but not be arrogant or narcissistic; intelligence is a must, but again, the arrogant need not apply. That’ll get you started.
17.) Do you see yourself getting married in the next 5 years? — No.
18.) Are you mostly a clean or messy person? — Depends on the day.
19.) Do you have a religion? — No, but I am spiritual and have my own personal beliefs.
20.) If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?— Where wouldn’t I go?
21.) Name 1 thing you miss about being a kid: — My father.
22.) Name 1 thing you love about being an adult: — Freedom.
23.) What’s your favourite song of the moment? — Never on a Sunday by Connie Francis because it reminds me of my mother and her relationship with my father.
24.) What’s your favourite song of all time? — Get Down Tonight by KC and the Sunshine Band
25.) What’s your favourite thing to do on a Saturday night? — Oh now I am definitely not going to answer this one. If you really want to know, you’ll just have to read my blog!
26.) What would be your dream job? — Either a philanthropist or a sex therapist.
27.) Ever wish you were born the opposite sex? If so, why? — Yes, have you? Sexism is still prevalent, as I’m sure both sexes can attest to this.
28.) Name 1 thing not many people know about you: — I used to be a boy. No, kidding! Really, only kidding.
29.) Do you believe in the afterlife? — Yes.
30.) Thing you cannot leave the house without? — My keys.
31.) Favourite flower? — As life is a garden, I love them all, even the weeds.
32.) Heels or flats? — Heels.
33.) Do you get good grades? — Oh yes. Education is extremely important.
34.) Do you like swimming? — Yes.
35.) Do you eat fries with a fork? — Sometimes.
36.) Do you want to get married later on in life? — I’m not opposed to it, but I believe that love doesn’t need a contract.
37.) Do you bite your nails? — I used to, but not anymore.
38.) Do you drink coffee? — My mother was from Seattle and when I was just a baby, she bottled fed me coffee laced with a little milk and sugar. And so this began my lifelong love affair of coffee.
39.) What memory would call up your personal Patronus spell? (in other words, what memory is your happiest or sweetest?): — There are far too many to choose from!
40.) If I Ruled the World … — There would be accountability for people’s actions.
41.) If you could have been born and grown up somewhere else, where would that have been? — Greece? Italy? The UK?
42.) If you could do one thing or grant one wish for someone else, what would it be? — Oh, that’s a tough question. Heal a broken heart, heal an illness, pay all their bills and set them up financially…that sort of thing, I guess.
43.) What is the best pickup line you’ve heard? Oh boy, there are a few of them, but it’s a tie between: How much does a polar bear weigh? Enough to break the ice and I’ve got the body of a Chippendale dancer….he’s buried under my patio at home.
44.) What fictional character do you most identify with and why? — Oh my, that is a toughie. I’ll get back to you on this…
45.) True or false: pineapple on pizza is wrong. — False.
46.) Favourite book? — Again, there are far too many to choose from, but I have to say, Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Cruise and Bob Mayer is one that I’ve read more than once and it never fails to make me laugh.
47.) If you had the choice to live in any fictional world, as in transposed into a book/movie, which one would it be? …I have no clue. I’ve read so many books and for the most part, all were really good, but I truly enjoy living the life I lead.
48.) Movie adaptations of books – heinous, evil and always disappointing or perfectly acceptable? — Perfectly acceptable, but the book is always better.
49.) What is your biggest fear? —Rats!
50.) What is your philosophy/motto in life? — Try to find at least three positives in any negative and when all else fails, remember that you’re still alive and that definitely beats the alternative. I know deep, right?
Thank you for sending this to me, it was quite fun! I’ll happily answer most questions and the one’s I won’t answer are usually because you have to be over 18 to hear the answer, so please keep the questions coming.
