I love getting tagged. It like the virtual, physical affection of the blogging world. That's a nice way to think of it, isn't it? I'm jolly proud of myself for thinking it up. Anyway. My dearest friend Emma from 'A Lantern in her Hand' has tagged me with... let's see, with the Sisterhood Award. Nice, huh? So, thank you, Emma Jane!
#1 Do you like county fairs?
I've never been to one. Is that shocking? Is it? Is it? I have no idea. We don't have them here in Belgium. It sounds absolutely charming though - an image of the beautiful candy-like fair from State Fair comes into my mind, and I want to go to one now. But I had a dream last night that I went to a fair, so I suppose it counts. Yes, I do like country fairs then. :-D
#2 Were you ever in some sort of club as a kid?
Club. Club. Mmm. Not as far as I can remember. I read the Little House on the Prairie books instead, over and over and over and over again. And watched the 'Heidi' version with Jane Seymour. That's better than clubs, you know.
#3 What's one of the first movies you remember seeing?
That's a fun question! Um, it probably was Heidi. The version with Jane Seymour. As a young child I didn't watch movies that much at all, but I can vividly remember re-watching Heidi a lot. I LOVED it. Sometimes I was super scared of the Grandfather, though, but I loved it. I wanted to be Heidi - I wanted to wear her floral print dresses and stroke little goats.
#4 Which would you rather do: hop in your old pickup truck and go for an unexpected adventure, or sit on the back porch with a good novel on a warm summer evening?
No need to answer this question as far as Emma is concerned, I'm sure! She knows it. Why, the LATTER one of COURSE! I mean, what kind of person prefers driving to who knows where to reading a good novel in the yellow-ness of the beautiful noon?!!! Not me.
#5 Do you enjoy live concerts?
I'm not really one for concerts - they tend to bore me to death. The fact that I'm still alive probably means I haven't been to that many. Seriously though, I don't suppose I've been to that many good ones.
#6 Which do you read more of: historical fiction or contemporary fiction?
Historical, DEFINITELY. I read sooooo *spreads arms wide* much historical and only so *shows one centimetre gap between hands* contemporary. I have read a few contemporary books quite recently, though, but I'm definitely a historical-fiction-girl. You might've guessed.
#7 Do you like country music?
Yes, but it's not my favourite. I prefer vintage 40's music.
#8 If you could play any role in a musical, who would you chose?
Eliza Doolittle. I have to say, I'm getting rather good at the Cockney, and I just love her role. I'm currently watching the absobloomelutely lovely 'My Fair Lady' with my siblings, and I'm LOVING LOVING LOVING it. It's just so much fun.
#9 Do you ever put your feet up on the dashboard when riding in a car?
Oh yes. But never longer than three seconds. Because it's distracting for the driver, apparently. And unladylike. (And it's called dashboard, is it? Thank you for telling me.)
#10 Can you tell us a funny story of something that happened to you in the last week/month/ever?
Of course I can. Why would you assume I couldn't? Yes, I can.
I'm so very cheeky today.
