Hehehehehehehehe. That is sound of my girlish giggling because I have been nominated for a book blog award.
Picture girlish giggling with a little skip and a jump and you may be getting there with how pleased this has made me!
I’ve been nominated by Marina @Books of Magic which is particularly awesome as I enjoy all her blog posts and comments and pretty much jot down any book recommendations like it’s holy text.

- Nominate up to 15 bloggers that you admire and inform the nominees
Ok, so here is where you find out that I am the most boring person alive.
Actually, temporary pause.
This is me…
I am currently *mumbles* 33 and still enjoy riding carousals. That number is just going to get higher but the love of carousals will never go away.
My name is Geraldine which is a name not many people under the age of 70 have but I go by Gerry because I am not yet 70.
There we go, we are officially introduced. That’s factual information for free!
I have a witches mark – i.e. an unusual birthmark.
It’s on the left side of my body on my rib-cage and isn’t exactly visible for public viewing but if it was I wouldn’t mind because it doesn’t bother me at all.
I always jokingly refer to it as my ‘witches mark’ because I think it would have been the evidence that would have resulted in my conviction of witchcraft in Ye Olde Days.
I’m not helping Ye Olde Days Gerry out here.
This is my little black cat called Willow. I love her. She is awesome.
Sadly, I don’t have any brooms and cannot perform any magic. The cat always looks like she’s about to though.
I’m borderline obsessed with Lush bath bombs. Obsessed.
I’ve made it a mini-mission (not a life goal ok, even I’m not that sad… or am I?) to have a bath using every single Lush bath bomb made. But not like, at the same time or anything because THAT would be ridiculous. Hahaha. Hmm…
No Gerry. No.
This is not my *actual* phone but this is my phone. As in, I still have a Samsung slide phone from circa. 2006.
That’s ok, I’ll wait while you pick your jaw up from the floor. If the apocalypse occurs then the cockroaches will be able to make calls on my phone because nothing is killing this thing. And you know what? I’ll cry the day it goes because I’ll have to get a smartphone like everyone else and be all modern and stuff. Sniff.
If I ever wrote a book that everyone loved and then received a phone call that said Guillermo del Toro wanted to make a movie about it I would say, ‘dear god yes, just go for it. It’s yours. Make whatever changes you want. Do what you need.’
I love his movies. Shape of Water was beautiful, Crimson Peak was visually stunning, Blade 2 creeped me the hell out, Hellboy was great fun and Pan’s Labyrinth made me cry. Well, the bits I could watch. *shudder* The Pale Man *shudder*
Fan fact (for free): I follow my best friend around with my hands over my eyes Pale Man style sometimes because we saw the movie together. She is still scared.
Everyone should have a song that they just whack on to make themselves feel better. My go to song is ‘Float On’ by Modest Mouse.
Whenever I play it I have to move my body around in what some members of the human race would call ‘dancing.’ Others really wouldn’t call it that at all.
It’s hardly a fact as I mentioned it in my ‘About Me’ section but I cannot state enough how much I love tea.
Yes, I’m going to answer the question no one has asked. I have drunk tea while in the bath with an awesome Lush bath bomb and yes, my cat meows and scratches pathetically to come in.
This is where I’m going to be a dirty cop-out.
I’m still pretty new to all this and just getting to know people so don’t think I know enough people to nominate (and I’ve had a sneaky peak and the people I would have nominated have already been nominated or nominated me)!
So, I’m going to open this up to anyone who fancies it and would love for you to share your facts with me!
I’m as open as a book. Boom boom.
I’ll go now.
