Bookish: Game On – You Name It Tag

What you have to understand is this…

I distract myself and others. Emphasis on distracting myself.

My first ever school report card says exactly that; ‘distracts self and others.’ It’s hilarious that after 25 or so years the same behavioural traits apply. I guess there’s no conditioning me out of that one.

What I am currently doing is distracting myself from doing tags that I’ve been tagged in by doing tags that I haven’t been tagged in because that’s exactly the nonsense that I like to do.

I stole this one from Sara @ The Bibliophagist so please check out her answers here. Someone wanted Sara to do this tag. Me? I’m just foisting this on you.

Rules

  • Thank the nominator.
  • Answer 16 of the 19 questions.
  • Replace the 3 that you didn’t answer.
  • Q20 and Q14 must always remain intact.

Here we go!

Q1

I am currently reading Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. I am struggling. I am so sad that I am struggling with it because Tomi Adeyemi is a ball of delight presented to this planet in the shape of a person.

Q2

Give me bread or give me death.

Wow. That was dramatic and over the top.

Toast, I like toast.

Q3

Something that means I get them when they are very very very far away like a gun because I am in no way going to be in control of my mental faculties if they get that close to me. I have poor hand-eye coordination though so I’m pretty much zombie chow anyway.

Q4

Comedy. I am a wuss!

Q5

Neither? I can’t stand mud and who knows what lurks in the deep dark depth of any body of water. *shudders*

Q6

Skipping! That’s not a sweet that’s what I’m doing. This is #1 question skipped.

Q7

I’m a bundle of nerves so the library for sure, unless I know exactly where the party is held, who is going and whether someone will come with me!

Q8

I lurve a cheeky prosecco!

Q9

Skipping! #2

Q10

Probably to the Wild West. I’d like to experience that time and place but only for a day or two before I’m killed by outlaws or a snake or dysentery.

Q11

Obnoxious? Shy? Definitely bookish. I don’t think much has changed in all honesty!

Q12

Skipping! That makes #3.

Q13

“One of the things that happens when you get older is that you discover lots of new ways to hurt yourself.”

The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson

Q14

6, 9, 12

Q15

Oooh this is hard. So I know this says who would you *want* to portray yourself etc. but I Googled actors/ actresses with some descriptors of my family to see who would come up and went with the first recognisable image. So for instance for my Dad I Googled, ‘Irish actor with moustache aged sixty’ and got…

pierce brosnan

Pierce Brosnan!

For my Mum I Googled ‘brown haired British actress from London aged fifty’ and got…

Liz Hurley

Blimey! Liz Hurley!

For yours truly I Googled ‘short brown haired British actress in thirties’ and got…

emily blunt

Emily Blunt. I am more than happy with that!

Then for my brothers I Googled ‘young brown haired British actor’ and ‘young light brown haired British actor with tattoos’

I got Colin Morgan and Tom Hardy. Ha! Double ha!

None of us look anything like these people I need you to realise but I would definitely watch a movie with that lot in!

Q16

Do I have an endless electric and wi-fi supply? Can we take that as given? Excellent!

  1. Kindle
  2. My laptop
  3. Bottomless margharita – somehow

Q17

At the risk of sounding incredibly new-agey I don’t have a place as peace is something I have finally managed to bottle up and bring with me. Yeuch. Sorry. But it’s a refection on how I feel!

Q18

This universe Gerry is jealous of alternative universe best selling author Gerry.

Q19

Tell you what. These are the last three I downloaded…

Falling – Haim

In Your Eyes – Peter Gabriel (Deadpool 2’s fault)

Flames – David Guetta and Sia

Q20

Marina @ Books of Magic

Kara @ Bernard’s Book Blog

Bibi @ Bibi’s Book Blog

And of course anyone else who wants to do it!

 

The questions are as above but I need to give three questions to replace the 3 I didn’t answer so here are a new 6, 9 and 12!

6. What is the last book that made you cry and why?

9. If you could choose one animal to shape-shift into what would it be?

12. You’ve been granted 24 hours to have a psychic ability of your choosing (consequence free), what ability would you have and what would you do with it?

  1. “At the risk of sounding incredibly new-agey I don’t have a place as peace is something I have finally managed to bottle up and bring with me. Yeuch. Sorry. But it’s a refection on how I feel!” Aww, I find that so sweet. ❤ As always, terrific answers! I like your choices of what to bring on an island (bottomless margherita lol) and same…give me toast or give me toast. 😉

  2. Please steal all my tags, your answers are always amazing! 💕

    I love the cast of your movie! I would definitely watch it! And the Wild West! That would be a lot of fun but I would probably also immediately be killed by outlaws, a snake, or dysentery.

    1. You do the best tags so I think I will always steal 😛

      Rest assured, none of my family (including me) look anything like the above…. actually the brother that I picked Colin Morgan for actually does look a bit like Colin Morgan….

    1. If we looked like that in real life we would make such an awesome looking family. But I’ve got to confess, I’m glad we don’t look like that as I think it would be weird having a mum looking like Liz Hurley! I wish I looked like Emily Blunt though…
