Q & A Meme # 3


Saturday morning - the sun is shining, but has yet to warm up!  Mum and Dad were muttering about gardenning yesterday, but as mum is still in bed, I'm using that as my excuse to get the questions jaded_jamie  gave me stared ... and maybe even finished!

Here are the 5 questions ...

1: You have two wishes. [no wishing for more wishes, no bringing back from the dead, no making people fall in love with you] What are your wishes?

2: What makes you feel the happiest?

3: What is second favourite book of all time and why is it only second favourite?

4: What is the most significant event in your entire life?

5: If you could make any fictional character, be real and fall madly in love with you, for the rest of your life, who is not blond or a vampire or played by James Marsters LOL, who would it be and why?

So, maybe now you know why I groaned when I read them ... and said my brain was aching!  Still, I've always thought it's good to be challenged ... so I shall answer them, as they were asked, and not cheat and ask for a different set!


1: You have two wishes. [no wishing for more wishes, no bringing back from the dead, no making people fall in love with you] What are your wishes?

I suppose I could say the classic - Happiness for friends & family, as number 1 and World peace for number 2.  I could wish that I had a job, new home, whatever to be more settled ...

However I also think Jamie wanted me to be more specific -

a)  My first would be that Mum and Dad both regain their full mental and physical (for their age) strength ... I see them getting very forgettful, Mum's eyesight and hearing is poor, Dad just falls asleep all the time.  Yes, I know they are in their 80s, but I wsih that they could enjoy themselves more.

b)  I wish that I could get inspiration when it comes to present buying ... whether it's from a Charity Shop or a Posh Shop ... no worries ... I just wish I could think what to buy friends and family (and maybe wish I had the money to do it!)

2: What makes you feel the happiest?

Seeing family and friends happy ... seeing James in "Tigger" mood .... visiting new places - cities, stately homes, museums .... seeing James ....

3: What is second favourite book of all time and why is it only second favourite?

I presume you mean the 3rd book Jamie ... as I do love The Bible.

First book is The Anne of Green Gable series ... yep, can't separate them.

So, the second book is an Edwardian Book called "Following of the Star" ... and is about a rich lady who goes to Church on Christmas Eve and has her heart touched by a visiting missionary ... she donates money to his cause, and he goes back to Africa ... they write to each other ...

The book is in 3 parts - Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh ... Gold where she gives her heart to God and her money to the missionary, Frankincense is where you see their friendship develope over the time and the work they both do for the Church ... with Myrrh being the realisation that she wants to see him again ... only to hear froma  colleague he has contracted malaria.

It's a great book that I have read often, but I suppose Anne wins as you get to see her as a teen to her children being teens.

They are both of the girl who didn't fit in, finding love in unexpected places!

4: What is the most significant event in your entire life?

Becoming a Christian!  My faith is who I am, what I am ... and my stregth and support at all times.  I can honestly say that without God in my life I don't know what I would do ... He is always there.

On a secular basis (see Jamie, I'm being a good girl ... or maybe just putting off answerring the last question!) ... going to college would be my answer.  I learnt that I'm OK, for the first time in my life.  Yes, I knew family thought I was OK - but they "have" to ... going to colege I had friends, people to speak to at lunchtime ... people to phone over hollidays, it was a great time for me. 

It made leaving hard - and I know that I can 101% relate to Hawkeye in the last episode of M*A*S*H

5: If you could make any fictional character, be real and fall madly in love with you, for the rest of your life, who is not blond or a vampire or played by James Marsters LOL, who would it be and why?

Told yoyu Jamie is a meanie!

My answer would be ... am I allowed Harry Dresden?  But think he would be out, as James reads him!

So ... I suppose, Mr Darcy ... smart, clever, (rich) ... and proud!  But when he fell in love he wanted to break down those boundaries.  He fought for his family .... saving his sister, then saving his "love's" sister.  And, although I love James in casual clothes, he does look great in a suit ... so with Mr Darcy you would certainly get that formality. 

But, still think Spike is a better option!


Well, Mum has just got up - so I had better get the gardenning started.

Hope that you all have a good weekend.
