Ramblings of a Misguided Squirrel

~Musings on Life from a Squirrel and her resident Umpa Lumpa~

I got tagged! (I was here all along, but in-vis-i-ble …….)

on January 31, 2014

*slides in awkwardly* hey … guys …

Shh let’s just pretend I never vanished okay? Okay good.

Hello! Hello my friends and bloggers and assorted random internet people!

I got tagged!

George has kindly awarded me the Liebster Award so thanks George!

*announcer’s cough*

Here be the rules!

The recipitant of this award must:

1.  Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.
2.  Answer the 10 questions given to you by the nominee before you.
3.  Nominate 10 of your favourite blogs with fewer than 200 followers and notify them of their nomination.
4.  Come up with 10 questions for your nominees to answer.

Well, it seems I have a to-do list.

Let’s see … George’s questions …

1. Who is your favourite fictional character?

Hmmm … goddammit always with the difficult ones! Right let’s see …… Nope, can’t do it. THERE ARE TOO MANY! Like there’s the book-list of favourite characters and then there’s the film-list of favourite characters and don’t even ASK about the tv-list! And then you’ve got the books that were made into films or TV shows and just what. So no. Thanks George, but I’ll be weaselling  out of this question.

2. Have you ever been in a relationship?

Yes. There were two. We don’t talk about it.

3. What is your favourite food?

I have decided I am officially bad at questions that involve favourites! I want to say fish-fingers and custard and I also want to say chocolate and macaroni cheese and spaghetti and creme caramel and pork-and-apple pie and jammy dodgers and do drinks count? and chicken burgers and apples and fajitas and pitta bread and picnics and digestive biscuits and this soup that my granddad made once and ! That’s basically just off the top of my head and I have made myself hungry now. So that was clever. Does that answer your question?

4. Who are you most like from harry potter?

Ooooh! I know! I will take a quiz! (I always screw up these quizes by guessing which answers will get which character and answering accordingly as oppossed to actually … you know … answering them.)

I kept confusing the quiz by answering for effectively a different person on every question 😀

So this is probably not very accurate ……

The results are in!

I am most like *drum roll please* ……..

you are harry

Oy! I’ll have you know that I do very well in school! And I doubt ‘grounded’ is how most people would describe me ….. Thoughts?

5. What is your favourite film?

Dammit George (I’m a doctor not a missile engineer!)! We talked about the favourites questions! (well, I typed and you might have read …..)

Anyway! I don’t have one, there is simply far too much amazing filmography in the world to choose! Instead, I will tell you the last film I watched. The last film I watched was …… The Emporer’s New Groove (don’t judge me. It is the story of what would happen if Tony Stark got turned into a llama. I was ill. I can watch whatever I want when I’m ill.)

6. Have you ever read Lord of the Rings?

Have I ever read Lord of the Rings. Is that even a question? OF COURSE I’ve read Lord of the Rings, it is one of my all-time favourite book/film trilogies! That reminds me … I should read them again …

7. Have you ever read night circus? (if no READ IT NOW)

NO! But okay I’m going I’m going …….

8. Where would you most like to go?

Right now? I don’t know I am recovering from illness. But on a normal day? Probably back-packing around Europe. I do love Europe. I don’t know why, it’s just like … it’s so close but so different at the same time and there are so many different parts of it and it ranges from the freezing cold Arctic Circle ness to the sun-burn-in-three-seconds-flat (damn my pale skin) ness of the Mediterranean and I don’t know I just love it. But I’d also like to take the Trans-Siberian Express across Russia and down to Malaysia and Singapore and visit Australia and work in AMerica for a while and see Peru and Africa and Kenya and Madagascar and wow, I am never going to get enough money to do all that. Well, a girl can dream 😀

9. What colour is your blogging tool? (laptop/phone/ipod etc)

Well right now I am blogging on the laptop I stole from my sister’s room (Which by the way is slow as hell and keeps MALFUNCTIONING AND CLOSING ALL MY TABS and if any of you tell her about this I WILL KILL YOU) because I got my laptop confiscated (and yes stealing this one required a little breaking-and-entering into the locked thing my sister keeps most of her useful stuff in – so inconsiderate – but the lock is rubbish and who needs the key when you’ve got a pair of 3D-glasses that work just as well?) and my sister’s laptop is kinda black and grey, but MY laptop, which is way better anyway, is red, which happens to be my favourite colour (that’s one favourites question I can answer). Wow, hella long sentence and much overuse of brackets there. Oops.

10. Why did you start a blog?

Why did I start a blog …. *flashbacks*

Let’s just say I had vaguely attempted blogging a few times over the years before, which usually resulted in one post (if that) before I gave up, but Elly and Taby got WordPress and demanded asked me to join it, so I did and here we are.

 

Well, those were the questions! And now for the nomminations!

And the nominees are ….:

Taby (but not Elly because she is a poo-face with far too many followers for her own ego, and also too many for this award (love you really ;)))

Hannah (what can I say? IRL friends always get nomminations because they would beat me up if they didn’t :D)

George (because I am totally allowed to nominate back okay? okay? DOBBY IS A FREE ELF!)

Lilith (one of my blogging buddys who I haven’t talked to in a while (which might have something to do with how I vanished from the blog-o-sphere …. shh!) and who has an awesome blog!)

LittleMissNerdyBookworm (who has an incredibly awesome and nerdy blog and who I feel like I have followed forever)

FloodedRoses (who has left the blog-o-sphere for now because she is too popular and has decided to set up a new blog and start from scratch again so good luck!)

The Mostly Confused Teenager (because their about page made me laugh)

 Mia (because she always makes me laugh and feel better about myself)

Attempting Reality (kind of inspiring and funny and basically where most of my book recommendations come from as well as George)

GirlWithTheSilverLocket (one of my follow forever and evers and one of the first bloggers I actually talked to instead of reading, liking and hiding :D)

 

Whew! So that’s ten!

And now the questions you lucky luck victims nominees must answer on pain of pain! dun dun duuuun! (Self-high five for Princess Bride reference):

  1. Have you seen the Princess Bride (and do you get that reference? You get let off if you used a SPN gif to answer this. You rock.) and if not GO! Now!
  2. Why the hell do you people read my blog? It is literally just me sitting at a (stolen) laptop in my pajamas typing words as they come into my head? (Am I allowed that as a question? Yes no yes no too bad it’s a question)
  3. What is the thing that annoys you most about blogging?
  4. What do you like most about blogging?
  5. Your family. Tell me about them. *creepy stalker face* NO.
  6. What. Is your favourite. Colour. (Another self-five for the Monty Python reference that only works if you read it in the accent. Which reminds me …)
  7. Monty Python. Yay, nay, or what-the-hell-are-you-talking-about?
  8. Cooking! Do you cook or bake or whatever, do you like cooking and how much cooking do you do per week?
  9. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and how do you take it?
  10. Word Association! Potato.

Enjoy my friends!

 

And in other news …….

Illegal watching of the latest Supernatural episodes is going well, I am ill and off school (well, I was ill, off school and throwing up yesterday, and today I feel fine but apparently my mother thinks I should stay home because she turned all my alarms off and didn’t bother to wake me. And by fine I mean better. Not completely fine, but better.), and am addicted to the Welcome to Night Vale pdcast (I don’t think I told you all about that) which reached a height of actually running around the house screeching with my headphones in at the 1 year anniversary episode.

Sherlock is back on hiatus which featured my re-writing the whole of Simon and Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence to start with ‘hello hiatus my old friend’. Shut up. I was bored and emotional.

PEOPLE KEEP READING MY BLOG WHEN I FORGET TO POST AND I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS HAPPENS!.

You all have official permission to spam my comments with increasingly hostile threats and demands if I vanish again.

I did a bet with two of my friends featuring me having a different hairstyle every day for a week and one of them dying her hair green. It. Was. Toture.

I don’t know if I told you, but I got the Supernatural seasons 1-8 boxset for christmas and THE GAG REELS!! Also the Ghostfacers web series that is possibly creepier than actual Supernatural. Three guesses for what I did yesterday!

WordPress is telling me that someone googled ‘how to tell someone they are a fat lazy bitch nicely’ and got to my blog. We draw no conclusions.

 

Well, school is hectic as always, life is increasingly complicated and 2 of my favourite TV shows are on hiatus while 1 of them is only on telly in America.

Oh, and I keep majorly weirding my friends out by quoting and/or referncing Night Vale. They don’t understand. They tend to freak out. It’s a common problem.

Well, I should get back to being ill and maybe marathoning LOTR …..

 

Friends, bloggers, countrymen,

I hope you are all in good health,

and bid you,

Adieu.

 

DFTBA,

Beth
