The 25 Question Tag

Thank you to Sheree at a View From The Back for her questions and answers post yesterday about the 25 Question Tag challenge. She encouraged people to join in. Check out her awesome blog! This 25 Question Tag was created by Creabealounge.

Questions and answers

What are you wearing?: A onesie (yep I’m comfy!)

How tall are you?: 5’81/2” ( 178cm)

What’s your favourite TV show?: Murder She Wrote (my bestie told me I was born an old soul!)

Who are your favourite singers?: Prince, Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries)

Your favourite song? This is a very tough one. I have ones that stand out at certain moments in time. This could be a blog post on its own!

Someone you miss? My uncle, cousin and two of my friends have all passed within the last year.

Zodiac sign? Leo

What’s your favourite fictional character? Hercule Poirot and Scarlet Witch

Your favourite actors? Viola Davis, Mads Mikkelsen

Favourite colour? Red

Where do you go when you’re sad?

I don’t get sad too often but when I do I watch Scooby Doo. Anything that has been around In different incarnations forever and can still make me smile, will always be a go-to! So, I guess I go to my happy place! For anyone that’s interested in a slightly darker version of the cartoon mystery: Mystery Incorporated (2010-2013) was my favourite version!

How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?

Now? 10-15 minutes. Pre-Covid it was 20 minutes max (a few minutes extra time to slap on some makeup and better comb my hair!)

The reason you started a blog?

I love to write and it gives me an outlet to write about topics I’m passionate about. I never imagined that the blogging community would be so amazing when I started!

Fears? Flying

Last thing that made you cry? My friend’s death earlier this month

Last (comic) book you read? Spiderman series

What’s your favourite season? Summer (my birthday season!)

What’s your favourite Christmas song? Little Drummer Boy

What’s your favourite food? Guyanese dhal and curry…Polish cabbage rolls are a close second

Place you want to visit? Ireland

Last place you were? London, England

What instruments do you play? Does a tambourine count? I think  I can play one 😊

Last sport-related activity you did? Bowling (yes I totally count it as sports-related) but it was before Covid

Last song you sang? Bodak Yellow by Cardi B. My voice is absolutely terrible, but I sing or rap anything on my playlist! (which really should be a question! What’s on your playlist?)

Thank you again Sheree for the blog post inspiration. If you haven’t seen her fabulous blog yet, please check it out, View From The Back! Feel free to continue the questions and answers challenge in a post on your blog, or leave some answers in the comments below!

Also, since I kind of did ask…what’s on your playlist?

Mine is a mix of reggae, soca, hip hop, 90s house and alternative, and 80s UK pop! Dolly Parton too because her voice is a treasure!
