Sadje’s Questions:

  1. Where does blogging fits in your daily life?
  2. Have you ever tried to do;
    • a) Paragliding?
    • b) Horse riding?
    • c) Deep-sea diving?
  3. Do you celebrate your birthday?
  4. If you have free time at hand, would you go for a walk or a long drive?
  5. Your best friend calls in the middle of the night and asks you to meet them at a deserted place, will you go? BTW, this friend has known to pull pranks!

My Answers:

  1. Since starting my full-time job in May I have struggled to keep my blog going. I don’t blog as much as I used to, but I still manage to maintain a presence on the blogosphere and write some short stories and poems. I think if something means a lot to you, you will fit it in somehow, but you have to be realistic, there are only so many hours in the day.
  2. No, No and No. I have done some snorkelling in the past but I would rather go for a walk in the park or a trip to a museum than any of these activities.
  3. Yes and No. I usually celebrate my birthday on the closest Saturday to my actual birthday, but I don’t do anything big, like have a huge party. An afternoon tea or a trip to see a show, that would be enough.
  4. I’d go for a walk, or do some more blogging, or maybe go for a long drive in order to find a suitable place to go for a walk.
  5. I would ask a lot of clarification questions of my friend, before taking the plunge and go to meet them. I rarely go out in the middle of the night and I’d need a very good reason for it. Being my Best friend, they would know that.


Questions for my nominees:

  1. When were you last surprised, what happened?
  2. If you were to put together a time capsule that encapsulated your life right now, what three things would you put in it?
  3. If you could drive in any direction, what direction would you drive in?
  4. If you could choose a new name for yourself, what name would you choose?
  5. Would you prefer to live in a world where alcohol was free or where politicians were honest?
  6. What song would you play at a party in order to encourage people to leave?
  7. Who was a really good role model for you when you were a child?


So those are the questions. I’d like to nominate:
