Anything but Books Tag

I saw this tag on Kiersten @ Once Upon a Spine’s blog and it looked like a lot of fun so I decided to give it a go. Check out Kiersten’s blog if you are not following her already. Her answers are pretty cool.

NAME A CARTOON THAT YOU LOVE 

Adventure Time! I usually don’t watch western cartoons and I can be fussy about animation quality but for some reason I make an exception for this show. Honestly, I only started watching it because small children kept calling me Marceline. I had to be in on the joke.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SONG RIGHT NOW?

Right now it is probably Release the Bats by The Birthday Party or Common People by Pulp. I mostly listen to 80s music.

WHAT COULD YOU DO FOR HOURS THAT ISN’T READING?

Antiquing and thrifting. I have a passion for history and vintage fashion so naturally this leads to me spending entire days hunting through vintage clothing shops and antique shops for things to beautify both myself and my home with. I am also on a constant hunt for old band t-shirts.

WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU LOVE TO DO THAT YOUR FOLLOWERS WOULD BE SURPRISED BY? 

I cook. A lot. I am a bit of a foodie and when I am not having food adventures in restaurants I am cooking the dishes I cannot find in restaurants so I can try them.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE, UNNECESSARILY SPECIFIC THING TO LEARN ABOUT? 

19th century history, specifically the Victorian underworld, crime and medical practices. And Queen Victoria’s pet Pomeranians.

WHAT IS SOMETHING UNUSUAL YOU KNOW HOW TO DO? 

I know how to remove all of the gory parts off a skull. …I am friends with a lot of taxidermists, and used to work in a morgue, you pick things up.

NAME SOMETHING THAT YOU’VE MADE IN THE LAST YEAR. 

Does my house count? I bought a house recently so all of my DIY energy has been going into that. My bedroom is my favourite room so far.

WHAT IS YOUR MOST RECENT PERSONAL PROJECT? 

Right now I am currently building my own library. I want it to have a Victorian or steampunk theme so it is taking a lot of time and a lot of money. I will share photos when it is done, I promise.

TELL US  SOMETHING THAT YOU THINK OF OFTEN. 

My D&D character. I have only started playing and when I get bored at work I tweak or add things to his backstory in my head. I could probably write a book about this guy by now.

TELL US SOMETHING THAT’S YOUR FAVORITE, BUT MAKE IT ODDLY SPECIFIC. 

Red food. It is weird but if something is red I will be convinced that it will taste nicer than any other food of a different colour.

…Maybe the children are right, I am Marceline…

I tag anyone who wants to do this tag. Let me know if you do because I want to read them all.

  1. Your skill in removing gross things from skulls is…intriguing 😛

    I can’t wait to hear more about your Victorian/steampunk library. That sounds amazing!
