5 questions B had and I answered. Not well though.

Since the hangover from this Saturday seems to be alive and well, and not going anywhere, instead of bringing you a fabulous feature on a lovely club stuck in a time warp of a serious kind, located not far from my front door, I'll answer some questions. The dancing story will have to wait until its lingering effects fade away...

B of Cuttings on a blog answered 5 questions posed to her and now I'll answer the ones she asked me. See. It's a game.

1. If you knew you had to live in one (only one!) country for the rest of your life, what would it be? 

Agh. This is a tough one. Let me tell you about a nightmare of mine. It, in all its simplicity, is being able to draw a straight line between the now and the day I die. Staying in one place, and knowing what the future brings, literally give me shivers (not the good kind). So I can't pick one country. I'll have to pick the 'keep on moving from one place to the next every time ants manifest in my pants' (also not the good kind. Ants, not the pants. Pants are good.), or the always present option G. I like the option G.

2. What's the best thing about blogging?

Bleeps, aka blogging peeps. Love them you.

3. You are writing a novel. What is it about?

I like how you say "are writing" when I haven't even opened the file in a month (maybe it'll get tired and write itself?). However, when I was working on it last time it seemed to be about a bunch of people more or less dissatisfied with their lives, a hammer from a hardware store, and points of view and perceptions. It's not funny. Not in the least. I have one funny one in Finnish I've been going at for years, but to finish that one, I need my brother to be 14 again. Fart-jokes always did make me laugh.   

4. What is your superpower?

Only one? I'm done with being modest (Ha!) so I'll just give you my top five:

  • I roll up a carpet like nobody's business.
  • I can ignore an impending deadline, until the very second it is no longer humanely (hahahahahaha, mean humanly, hahahahaha) possible to meet it.
  • I can ignore and avoid things I don't want to do like a regular superhero. Sometimes I'll even fly away.
  • Apparently I can do a mean lambada, even though I don't think I actually could back when it was cool to be able to. Still, now that I'll actually have to get my hip x-rayed for a fracture because of the dance, I think this qualifies as a superhero-ish deed. And, if it turns out nothing's broken, well, that just speaks volumes about the self-healing power of my body of steel wine-derived flab.
  • I can make any bed in the blink of an eye. Mine or not. I detest an unmade bed. 

5. Blogging, twitter, or golf. If you had to give up one, what would it be?

To audible gasps, I would have to say twitter. Clearly there is no chance I would ever say blogging, since that would mark my demise in the form of going up in wine fumes of some sort. And all I have to say about golf is that I really like hitting things the ball, and i think I just might be kinda good at it sometime in the future. (Obviously I'm never giving up twitter either. I'm just saying.) I think I'll give up exercise and getting up early to exercise. Yup. that's it.

Leave me a comment if you would like to play, and I'll send you your extremely well thought out five questions.


iasa said...

When you are rolling up these carpets, is that because you've been practicing your golf swing indoors and you must quickly move the body?

rxBambi said...

I still want to play. And I want to read your books. Maybe not the one in finnish unless it has pictures. I have a husband and nephews so having a few good fart jokes in my arsenal would be good :)

iasa said...

Oh yeah, I wanna play too!

Vancouver's Enviro Girl said...

You are STILL hungover? Wow, that must have been some hell of a party!

spudballoo said...

Oh no, two day hangovers...that's mean. haven't had one of those for while.

Loving your superpowers. I'm gonna get me some of them.

Yeah, I could live without twitter. I'm getting too many virtual selves. One of them is going to have to go. prolly FB I think?

I'd love to play along! Ta for all the comments on my blog - help me - i'm being dense re not commenting from email, I didn't understand. Durrrrr. H.E.L.P!

Just Jules said...

this is all so fun. I love these kind of posts (unless of course they were everyday in which I would tire of them) so - yeah... good read

kristine said...

i am so with you on the 'where would you live..." question. the thought of staying in one place forever literally makes me feel a little nauseous. I do envy people who can do that though.

(I had to google 'nauseous' to check how it is spelled. aparently it is right. it looks so wrong though).

rxBambi said...

ooops, I forgot I asked VEG to include me so I answered her Qs. BUT I'd love to know what you were wondering about me, so if you feel like it, ask away!

Lorac said...

I want to play! (Vitamin B for a hangover)

Extranjera said...

Iasa - That could be one of the potential reasons. Purely in theory though. Am not admitting anything. I sent you your questions to your mail.

VEG - I'm not sure if it is one or several different ones...

Spudballoo - Qs:

1. How has the transition from a flicking gal to a bloggin' babe been? How are you settling in?

2. The costumes...?

3. What do you think Mr. Spud thinks about this whole blogging deelio?

4. Name 3 things you can't live without and why? (Family and such excluded)

5. What is the story behind your 'name'?

Jules - Ta. Did you want to play? If so get back to me...

Kristine - I know. Horrifying, right? Did you want to play?

rxBambi - Will get back to you on that...

Lorac - Qs:

1. How do you feel about where you live now and is there anywhere else in the world you would rather live?

2. You are rather new to this blogging. How did you get started? And what do you wish to accomplish in this world?

3. Name three things you can't live without and why? (again, family and such not included)

4. One person you would like to meet, but can't because they're either dead or protected by several men in dark glasses, and why?

5. So what will it be? Career-wise?

Polly said...

giving up exercising and getting up early is my life's goal at the moment as well. and I know how you feel about hitting the ball (things), it can be very satisfying once you manage to hit it.

can I still play?

M.J. said...

"Bleeps," "Tweeple"...I like that new words are invented daily thanks to the internet. :)

Fidgeting Gidget said...

Ok, I'm a day or so behind since I was gone, but I want to play, too!

Optimistic Pessimist said...

I'm a bit offended at the mere mention of having to giving up blogger or twitter.

Extranjera said...

Polly - sent you your questions.

M.J. - Only leaves you to wonder whether the language is gaining or losing because of it... ;o)

Gidge - Your Qs:

1. Three items you could never live without?

2. Steal a really big shovel and burrow a hole to China or hijack a rocket and head for Mars?

3. What made you start blogging?

4. Name a tv-show you would love to be on. Which character and why?

5. Grouper's current position on the whole blogging deal?

Opie - Still not in love with Twitter, although can totally feel the potential... But Blogger? NEVER!

Optimistic Pessimist said...

Ok I didn't think I wanted to play...but now I do. Is it to late to get questions????

WV: fists

Always weird when it's an actual word.

B said...

Yay for playing! I was really hoping you picked up a country! But I feel the same about knowing where you're going to be, etc. so I'll let it go.
Absolutely love your superpowers!

K13 said...

Oh....I'd like to play along!!

Extranjera said...

Opie - Sen you your questions to your gmail.

B - I could never pick just one country. That would just be impossible (and I might implode)... Thanks again!

K13 - I'll send you the questions a little later to your mail.
