Cymre and Kamalia nominated me for the Real Neat Blog Award.

Thank you! real-neat-blog-award

The rules are:

  • Thank and link the person who nominated you
  • Answer the seven questions your nominator has provided
  • Nominate 7 other bloggers and create 7 questions for them

 

Cymre’s questions

  1. How would you pass the time during a blackout?
    I would probably read a book.
  2. If you could be any superhero for a day, who would you be and why?
    I would be Wonder Woman because she’s an amazing character, strong and with many useful abilities
  3. What is one thing you love collecting or loved collecting as a child/adult?
    I used to collect many things as a child, but my favorite thing was joker cards because I got inspired by one of my favorite books The Solitaire Mystery by Norwegian author Jostein Gaarder.
  4. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
    Australia because I could visit my relatives, half sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins that I’ve never met before. I want summer, sun and beaches, and there are so many places and things I would like to see and explore.
  5. If you could only take one item to a deserted island, what would it be?
    Can I bring a boat so I can get home again?
  6. Who is your main and why do you love playing her/him?
    My main is Syrco, a balance druid, but I play my alt, a resto shaman, as much as if not more than my main. They have been my favorite characters since Wrath of the Lich King. I like balance druid because I can look like a big fat owl and go crazy with laser beams. Resto shaman is fun because I can heal big groups at a time and I like how chain heal jumps around.
  7. Favourite phone app?
    The app I use the most is Pokemon GO. I play when I walk to or from the bus, when I’m waiting for something or maybe I decide to go for a walk just to play.

 

Kamalia’s questions

  1. What locations in WoW have the best background music?
    I don’t remember all the exact locations, but some of my favorite music is Night Elves, Invincible, Arthas My Son, The Whispering Forest and all the music in Ulduar.
  2. Are there any ways in which WoW (or other games) has influenced or inspired things you do in your pay-the-bills career?
    No, I don’t think so, nothing comes to mind.
  3. Which calculator format do you prefer — TI (enter numbers and operations as you would write them on paper) or HP (reverse Polish)?
    I have no idea what that means, I hate math.
  4. What was the most memorable book that you read/movie that you watched last year? What made it so memorable?
    Book: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child because I love the Harry Potter books and I always wished for another book from the Harry Potter universe. The book took me back to the wizarding world and Hogwarts. It was an amazing journey.
  5. If you could take six months off from your current job and go back to college for a semester and study anything you wanted, what class(es) would you take?
    I never went to college because I still have left to finish some classes from high school. My plan is to go to college or university but I’m not sure what I want to study.
  6. Give me a recipe for something that you like to make for dinner when you don’t have much time or energy for cooking.
    One of my favorite things to make is actually pretty quick.
    Fry minced chicken, add taco seasoning. Cut tomatoes and cucumber. Heat frozen pita breads. Roughly mash one avocado, add lime juice, some salt and pepper. Spread sour cream and avocado in the pita bread, then add chicken, tomatoes and cucumber, more avocado and sour cream on top.
  7. My current favorite chocolate bar is Chocolove’s “Holiday” bar, which is 55% cacao chocolate with pecans, currants, dried cherries, walnuts, hazelnuts, candied orange peel, and candied ginger — every square is a different delight! What’s your favorite sweet treat of the moment?
    I could eat a giant Toblerone every day, it’s so good! Luckily they don’t sell the big ones here and the small ones are so expensive, so I don’t eat them very often.

I haven’t been very active on my blog or read many blogs lately. Many bloggers I followed have either stopped writing or already been nominated, so I’m only going to nominate Class and Cidien.

But if you read this and haven’t been nominated, then feel free to answer my questions and let me know so I can read it.

My questions

  1. Do you have a blog post you are particularly proud of?
  2. Which WoW companion do you wish was your real pet?
  3. What makes you laugh?
  4. You’re going to BlizzCon, what panels are you most excited to see?
  5. Which WoW character would you like to cosplay?
  6. Your favorite holiday destination?
  7. Which game was your favorite as a child?

5 Fandom: Your 5 Most Binge Worthy Shows

5fandomfriday

This friday it’s all about the most binge worthy shows. It’s hard to pick only five cause there are so many shows I could watch for hours and hours, season after season. But these have to be my top five.

Game of Thrones

GameofThrones

I think I started watching Game of Thrones when season 2 was about to start. I had never heard about it before but I had friends who told me it was great so I sat down and watched the whole first season and I was hooked. Been watching it since then and I’ve read the books.

The Walking Dead

Started watching The Walking Dead when it premiered. I’m very interested in apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic movies so I was very excited to see how this show would play out and I wasn’t disappointed. Been watching since.

Grimm

Grimm

I don’t remember when I started watching Grimm but I think the first season might have been out or at least some episodes. I admit I was a bit unsure about it at first but it got more and more interesting as I watched and the story progressed. The last season has been amazing.

Breaking Bad

Breaking-Bad

Everyone had great things to say about this show so I had very high expectations when I started watching. It was hard to take a break from the show when I knew the whole show was completed and everything I had to do was just watch it. It was so thrilling and exciting.

Sherlock

Sherlock

It’s been a while since I watched this show now, but I’ve watched everything so far and I can’t wait for the next season to start.

 

Other shows worth to mention:

  • Elementary
  • The Blacklist
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • True Detective
  • Fargo
  • Dexter
