I just got my first award, yay! Thank you, SJ O’Hart! :) I’m SO pleased!
Here is the award:
And the blogger who awarded it to me is the above-mentioned SJ O’Hart who has an awesome blog about writing – check it out here: http://sjohart.wordpress.com/
Here are the questions for me to answer:
What is your favourite word?
I have three favourite words, all of them in Polish. “Pasiasty” – striped, “ciapy” – slippers and “wypasiony” – “fancy”.
What did you want to be when you were little?
Children’s book writer.
Are you, or have you ever been, able to do a full handstand?
Yes, when I was around 5 or 6 years old.
If you could be any ‘baddie’ from history or literature, who would you be and why?
Probably Becky Sharp from “Vanity Fair”. I’ve always had a weakness for her. Her self-confidence and cunningness is so amazing.
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve eaten?
Do dry spaghetti, raw dough or pollen count?
If you won the lottery what’s the first thing you’d buy?
I’d give some money to the cat charities. And then I’d buy myself an evening dress :)
Do you have any weird favourite ‘things’, like favourite shoelaces, favourite spoon, etc?
I have a favourite mop. I call her Isabella. I even plan to write a post about her ;)
Have you ever been to a ballet – or, better yet, have you ever danced in a ballet?
I’ve been to a ballet several times but never danced :)
If you could own anything that you’ve read about in a book (like your own personal dragon, or The One Ring), what would it be?
A genie bottle, to make my 3 wishes come true.
Happiness is – ?
loving and being loved.
And well, I couldn’t resist answering some more questions from Kate Curtis. Sorry :)
What is your favourite scent/smell (excluding branded perfumes)?
Vanilla, coffee, skin of the people I love, my cat’s fur, the rain and many others.
If you could invite anyone (real or fictional, past or present) to dinner, who would it be and why?
How about some Egyptian pharaoh? I’m just really curious how they built all those pyramids and what they did in their free time.
Name a book you never finished reading.
I have dozens of those :) For example, “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon.
What is your favourite colour and has it always been the same?
Pink. Before pink I liked red. Now I’m torn between pink and pistachio green.
Do you collect anything?
Name three things you can see from where you are sitting.
My mobile phone, my cup of tea, my handbag.
Would space exploration interest you if the opportunity arose?
No – I have claustrophobia.
What is your favourite kitchen appliance?
An electric chopper! I cannot imagine my life without it :)
Name up to five films you have loved.
Uptown Girls, Loves Me Loves Me Not, If Only, Wedding Date, Enchanted
What is your favourite saying?
So, so many. But I really like this: Everything will be alright in the end. If it’s not alright, it’s not the end.
