Ask Me Anything!

I normally (the 'norm' being twice) do a big Ask Me Anything in the summer, and I sort of did one this year, on Emma + me being together in zee flesh. 90% (well slight exaggeration there) of those questions were, 'How late did you stay up', 'what movies did you watch together' and 'when is Emma coming to visit Naomi?!' and they were fun questions. I will always have good memories of us two answering them behind the woodstack in Emma's garden. Which is also where I read A Northern Light which I kinda want to reread.


I am doing another Ask Me Anything session. (You'd have never guessed by know.)

Ask me all zee questions, and I'll answer them all (maybe not all how you expect me to answer them; it all depends on whether or not I'm in a satirical mood or not when I answer them.) Ask me deep questions, nosy questions (can't promise detailed answers, but asking won't hurt), random questions with no purpose or reason whatsoever (I love those) and just, questions you've secretly been wanting to ask me for eons and eons. I know you've got them. (Ha.) (You're probably racking your brain right now, wearily thinking up some questions to make me feel loved. ;-P)

Comment them now. Onetwothreego.

And thanks. <3 :-)

    Oh and I just wanted to say, I've been admiring your layout again. It's so clean and crisp and pretty. And I love the color green you chose for your post title. :)

    ~Miss March

      Awww, thank you. You're the beeest.

  18. - Would you rather be best friends with Laura Ingalls or Mary Ingalls?
    - Do you (like me) wonder why Carrie never has a decent line in that whole show (I'm still talking the Ingalls family.)
    - Have you or have you not ever read the Complete Stories of Beatrix Potter?
    - If you could only save one character on Downton Abbey, but that character then had to do something terrible to a person on Downton Abbey whom they love, even though it went against all their principles (or perhaps didn't, depending on the character), would you save this person, and what would happen if you did? (Ha! That's a question and a half! You asked!!)
    - Do you ever count the stars?
    - When were you last outside in the rain?
    What is the favorite thing you did for school last year (I'm talking whatever you studied or if you went somewhere, or if you aced a test. Anything.)

    - What book have you been meaning and meaning to read but haven't read yet, and why not?
    - What's the last movie you watched?
    - Have you seen Mercy Street yet?

    I have more, but I am becoming long-winded.

    Oh! Favorite ever scene from Downton Abbey? But it cannot have Matthew Crawley in it. Or Tom. Or Mary. :)

    What if Charles Dickens had written Pride & Prejudice. Would you still read it?

    Je m'en vais.

  19. I came up with a few random, silly questions for you :-)

    What supernatural ability would you like to have?

    Which period drama would you live in if you could?

    Do you prefer tropical getaways or mountain escapes?

    What's the craziest thing you've ever done?

    In one word, how would you describe yourself?

    That's all I have now. I may be back later if I think of anything else.

  20. Hello! first question: can anonymous readers join in?! I have been an almost-silent reader of your blog for over a year. These are my questions!

    If Naomi Sarah couldn’t be your name, what would you choose?

    How big is your room?

    What is the view from your bedroom window?

    Have you ever watched The Bishops Wife (1947 version)?

    I think you have written somewhere that you speak two languages (obviously English and is it Dutch?) – were you brought up bilingual or did you learn one first? And does one come more naturally to you – which language do you usually think/dream in?

    Does Belgium have any sort of bonfire/fireworks night like England ? If so, did you celebrate it?

    I love your new(ish) blog-look by the way!

  21. OHMYGAWSH!!! You already have 21 comments chocked full of questions! 0-o

    Well, here are some more to add to your portfolio. ;)

    1.) Black or Pink?
    2.) Favorite YouTuber?
    3.) Favorite Dessert?
    4.) Name a book that you hated with a passion and wanted to burn to a crisp and throw across the room, once you finished reading it?
    5.) What is your favorite color to pain your nails?


  22. Gah, all these questions are so good!

    Okay, so I've finally thought of a few that I'm curious about.

    --What is your favorite vegetable, and your favorite fruit?
    --If you had to live inside the world of a book for the rest of your life, which book would you choose to live in?
    --What is your favorite time of day?
    --Favorite season? (if that hasn't been asked already.)

    And I second the questions for favorite tea, and book that you've been meaning to read for forever but haven't, and why, because I relate so thoroughly to that one. :)

  23. Okay, I know you already have a post answering all these questions(WHICH ARE INSANELY GOOD, AND NO, I HAVEN'T READ IT YET, WHICH IS BUGGING ME, BECAUSE I'M TECHNICALLY SUPPOSED TO BE STUDYING, BUT YEAH)but I have one...
    What is your opinion of the events going on in the United States? Most specifically, the election of Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. Have you been interested at all in the election, do you care at all, do you find it amusing to watch over the oceans, or are you genuinely concerned over it? I'd really like to know what people of other nationalities think about our American affairs. :)
    Sorry for the long comment if you have no inclination at all to answer these questions.

    1. Haha, The Dreaded Question! ;-) I'll answer this in the comments. ;-)

      What is your opinion of the events going on in the United States?
      Have you been interested at all in the election, do you care at all, do you find it amusing to watch over the oceans, or are you genuinely concerned over it?

      Yes, I have followed the election closely - it's all over the news in Belgium too. On the headlines of BBC, and all that. I'll definitely admit there are times when I found it amusing, but as it neared the end I did find myself genuinely concerned. Most of the time though: I was just sick of seeing it on the news, got to be honest. :-P
      I think both candidates are equally concern-worthy (in very different ways) and honestly wouldn't have known which one to vote for. I have friends who are very anti-Clinton and voted for Trump, and I have friends who are soooo the opposite. I see and understand both sides and I fully realise this whole election season is a bit of a mess!
      However - I don't like how so many people are freaking out. I UNDERSTAND WHY. But still: GOD IS KING AND HE RULES AND THAT IS THAT. :-)


Spam comments are lame. I got SO many of them I had to disable Anonymous comments. (Sorry nice Anonymites)

Anyway. Other comments = I LOVE YOU. :-)
