What is your favourite season of the year, and why?
Quite often, people say that you make a decision about a person based on the first 60 seconds of meeting them. So, my question for today is: What is it about a person that you notice when firstly meeting them that makes you either interested or disinterested in being around that person?
My answer: If the other person is interested in the meeting. That would be a determining factor. If that person is noticeably only interested in themselves, or bored/annoyed by my presence, then I want away very quickly.
What’s your answer?
What is the worst gift you’ve ever received?
My answer: An empty box!
If you could chose any super power to have, what would it be and why?
I’m on a diet. A quite strict diet. Which makes me fantasize about all the rubbish food I cannot eat. So my question for today is: What is your favourite rubbish food?
Mine? Well, I do love nacho nite! But in this case, I have to say cake batter! I cannot bake a cake, but I will eat an entire bowl of batter! Gross, huh?
What is your favourite rubbish food?
I read an interesting blog post about 1 week ago (which, of course, I am unable to find so I can link to it now…) which was talking about the insecurity that particular blogger had. ‘Will you like this?’ ‘ Do I suck?’ ‘ Will anyone read this?’ and I had to comment. I comment that, well, we all suck! Hah. That I think that our real-ness is what makes blogs so popular. When we are reading a blog vs. any kind of marketing material, we all feel a bit at ease because we know (in most cases) that there is a real person behind it. A real person with real emotions, experiences, needs… Not a team of marketing professionals that are blending together the ideal persona for their particular branding needs.
This blog post, really made me think. There are basic needs that every one of us has. We all need to be loved. We all need to survive. We all need to feel like our lives are worthwhile. And I think that we, as publishers, all need to feel appreciated for putting ourselves out there!
So my question for today is: Do you have these same needs and insecurities?
I know I do!
Hello there 🙂
Today, I want to ask you about posting some of my series’ a bit more often. I have noticed that my ‘Quirky Quotes‘, ‘Random Factoids‘ and ‘Getting to Know You‘ series’ have actually had a much better response than I ever imagined they would. I have tons of fun with these also, so I have been going back-and-forth on the idea of doing them weekly, as opposed to monthly as I do now.
I originally opted to post these monthly because 1) I never imagined anyone other than myself would have so much fun with it and…2) I was only posting 2-3 times weekly. I am now posting more often so it would not be difficult at all to include these on a more frequent basis as well.
You are the ones reading my blog, so I leave this question in your very capable hands. Would you like to see more of these, or prefer I keep it the way it is now?
What do you think?
Last evening, I found myself engaged in a debate. And the debate was this: Do dogs feel love or do they rather feel a sense of security and loyalty which we mistake as love?
Personally, I would like to think that dogs do have a sense of love and attachment. However, there were really good arguments made for both sides of this. I would really like to know what you think!
What do you think: Love or loyalty?

Would rather win 50,000 or let your best friend win 500,000?
My answer: Hmm…tricky. I think I’d let my BFF win 500,000!
What about you? Why?
Would you rather have the ability to reverse one decision you made every day, or stop time for 10 seconds every day?
Oooohhh…this is going to be a good one 🙂
My answer: Stop time
Greetings all 🙂
I was thinking about my blog-family on this grey cloudy day and I thought I would just pop in and ask you how is everyone doing today?
Monday, Monday, Monday…

My answer: Uuummm…both?
What are your thoughts?
What would you consider to be your 3 biggest weaknesses?

Hello everyone 🙂
Happy Sunday! Well, maybe not for everyone…you know what ‘they’ say: Going to sleep on Sunday, results in Monday. Anywhoo…
I read a great post by Ali at the Mindful Gardener. In the post, the possibility of starting a new theme on WP is discussed. That theme being ‘Soulful Sunday’. Now, don’t cringe. This has nothing to do with religion. (Trust me, I get it. I was scratching my head too before I read the post.) No. This is about posting a photo and telling about something that kind of makes you all warm and fuzzy inside that relates to it. (Please, correct me if I am mistaken here.) However, due to the ease of misunderstanding – I’m switching up to ‘Significant Sunday’.
I, personally, think it’s a grande idea! I mean…why not. As bloggers, we discuss products, health, travel, love, gardening and all manner of technical things. But we never quite manage to make ourselves the tiniest bit vulnerable, do we?
So here we are; Let’s get personal.
This is my nostalgia for the week. I know, it seems like I’m about to do a promo. I assure you, it is nothing of the sort. The reason this makes me nostalgic is purely because of thoughtfulness and a seemingly new tradition of sorts. You see, every December for the past 3 years, no matter where in the world I am at the moment, my mother sends me a Body Shop Advent Calendar. It has come to my home, my office, and at one point when I was unable to be pinpointed exactly, a local pickup.
Ever year she waits for them to be released. And ever year I get a different one. And every year, I do not have to go out and buy myself nice smelling items for a good long while!
The fact that she thinks of me so diligently (and also that she manages to find a way to get these to me) just warms my heart.
Family is so IMPORTANT! We must take the time to appreciate every bit of thoughtfulness. Our schedules are never too busy for that!
What’s your Significant Sunday?
When you were in school, did you ever cheat on a test?
Oh please, share your methods…I can’t wait to hear these stories!
My answer: Tried and failed. Those were the days when your only option was an arm full of ink written information. Oh how stupid we were to think nobody noticed!
Is it better to beg forgiveness or ask permission?
My answer: Permission. Although, I have had my moments of just doing what I wanted and asking forgiveness later.
What about you?
Do you think of yourself as being naughty, or nice?
Santa is watching… 😉
My answer: Honestly? I’m accused of being naughty so often, I might as well go with it.
What about you? Gifts or coal under the tree?
If you could choose one superpower, what would it be and why?
My answer: Invisibility! I actually wrote a post about it – forever ago. It can be read here.
Of all your pet peeves, which is the strangest?
My answer: (Oh, I am so embarrassed to say this) When people clip their fingernails in any other common room except the toilet. I don’t really know why, but it just grosses me out completely.
If you inherited or won 1 million (in whatever your country’s currency is), what would you do with it?
My answer: Pay off and fix-up my place! Upgrade to a newer auto, take a small holiday, invest a bit for the kids in the family – then save the rest in an interest bearing account (if there is any).
How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
This is a tough one…
My answer: Dedicated, Quirky, Friendly
We all blog for different reasons. What made you take the step to start blogging? Why do you blog?
My answer: Everyone kept telling me I should write a book about my life’s adventures. I thought to myself, why do that when I can share them in real time? Plus, I always google reviews on products I’m about to purchase, which is frustrating because so many are top 12 lists or really don’t say anything about the users actual experience. So, I thought it time-worthy to share my experiences in hopes of helping another frustrated consumer like myself.
If you could eat one meal, every day, for the rest of your life, what would it be?
My answer: Lobster and cheese fondue with champagne and chocolate fondue for dessert!
If you could read minds, whose would you want to read?
This one will be lots of fun, can’t wait to ‘hear’ your thoughts!
My answer: My fiance’s – then I could stop asking him ‘Whatcha thinking?’ all the time. (Although this would most likely be a horrible idea)
Is it just me, or has anyone else gotten a front row seat to witness an otherwise almost normal functioning ex’s degrading mental health after the engagement was announced? If so, please share your story. Seriously!
