To be honest, I couldn’t come up with eleven things. If an excuse really is needed, just think of this as an attempt to leave some mystery in our relationship. 😉
I LOVE “ugly shoes”. I once bought a pair because they looked like they could have been Forest Gump’s second pair of shoes (a classic 1950s orthopaedic shoe design). The first time I wore them to work, one of the teenager’s came running up to me and said, “Oh Miss, what happened to you?” – whilst his eyes remained riveted to my feet. He was astounded to discover that I had consciously (and happily) handed over money for them.
11 questions willeke73 asked me
- What does blogging mean to you?
It has provided a new way of “sticking and colouring”.
- Does everyone you know love the idea of you putting your words out there in the blogging world?
I didn’t ask. Didn’t think to.
- If you could be published, would you write things you do not stand behind?
Hell no! My words share something about myself: I can’t take responsibility for what they say if I don’t believe in them to start with.
- If you could return or go to college, would you pick the same subjects you initially studied?
Having recently completed a Masters degree, I’m really not in the mood for doing any formal studies for a while – at least until I’ve forgotten how much it hurt.
- What do books mean to you?
Books are how I seduce my imagination.
- Did blogging change your mind set about life, i.e. do you look at yourself the same way you did before starting a blog?
Not really. Blogging has been a fun and interesting learning experience, but my mind is still as much a freak as it’s always been. She’s a very special entity and I love her for it.
- Who is your favourite author and why?
I love words and storytelling too much to limit myself to just one. Regular reads include Terry Pratchett (for humour, great character development and astounding people watching observations); Lee Child (for who-dunnits I usually can’t figure out and because Reacher is a character who keeps my interest); Christopher Brookmyre (for delightful titles and the fact that he writes like a friend telling tales of their high jinx); and Iain M. Banks (for morality tales told through sci-fi). Oh, and church posters (because they can be surprising and funny).
- Did life turn out the way you thought it would?
Now where would the fun be in that? I just kinda set out to see what life had in store; and what I can say in all honesty is that regardless of the good, bad or indifferent events, it has been one wild and marvellous ride.
- Aside from blogging, what other interests do you have?
Funny, but I have never considered blogging as one of my interests. Things that bring me joy include music, the written word, travel, Anime, polar bears, people and “sticking and colouring”.
- Do you want to be inspirational or be inspired yourself?
Neither. When meeting people, I am just interested in spending time: discovering what we generate between us is the best part of the experience.
- Fun fact: just tell us a funny story or fact to end this long blog post to keep a positive imprint of your words on our brains.
I am fascinated by the human form in all its manifestations. It is miraculous beyond words and I can’t get over just how treacherously beautiful the body and its components can be.
Now that you know a little about me, why not have a nosey around and stop where the mood takes you? The contents page can be found on
