Band of Bloggers - Vol. 20/August 2017

Band of Bloggers Photo Pop quiz, hotshot: How well do you know your favourite Band of Bloggerette? Sure, we're all reasonably up to date on each other's interests, hobbies and the pretty, glittery things that make our hearts go pitter pat, but when it comes to the vitally important markers of a person's character - favourite band, desert island scent, fight stance in the zombie apocalypse - how well do we truly know our virtual neighbours? :) Let's delve into 10 deeply random questions and find out, shall we?

 Shit, the questions have started already. Uh... I'M READY?!?!

1. No really, zombie apocalypse survival strategy: Fight or flight?
Probably flight. I have no life experience to truly show me how I would react in a life or death situation, so I won't be bold enough to assume I would suddenly grow a pair and find the ability to fight.

2. You've been a bad, bad kitty and you have just one final meal coming your way. What's on your plate?
Spicy Chicken Alfredo. Don't bother making it, just bring me the ingredients. I'll make it myself.
3. Aside from wax (or nail polish, or crafting supplies, or beauty products) what item do you have major multiples of?
Stickers. It's gotten even worse with my newfound planner obsession... and the purchase of the printer... and the purchase of sticker paper... and other various sticker making supplies...

4. You've just won the lottery. Before best friends you didn't even know you had begin to show up on your doorstep, what's the first thing you buy without even thinking twice?
My freedom. What a weird way to phrase it. The actual thread of my thoughts while answering that question was "my freedom; pay off all our debt."

5. Biggest celebrity crush? This can be anybody - an actress, a musician, a fictional character from a favourite movie, book or television show, or maybe even an historical figure.
I can't say I really have one. No specific person comes to mind and I don't watch enough TV nowadays to consistently see a person I'll think is cute. I'll go with Chris Evans, I guess?

6. Flats or heels? Or are you running barefoot through life like some sort of hippie?
I absolutely love heels, but I can never wear them with Michael. I'm a little taller than him, so wearing heels makes the height difference much more noticeable and throws off our equilibrium for holding hands, dancing, etc. So in my head I'm a heel kind of girl, but in the real world I wear flats.

7. Whether it was created through a customs order or simple pick-and-mix blending at home, what's the greatest scent blend you've ever stumbled upon?
 Solstice Scents Snowshoe Pass and White Fox. I talked about it in this and it's still a blend I crave in the hotter Summer months.
8. It's snack time! Are you reaching for the sweet or the salty?
Based off my normal eating habits, salty. I get my sweet fix from my coffee.

9. What's a personal style moment you'd never care to re-live?
It wasn't by choice, but I had a really short haircut in 7th grade that made it look like I had an afro going on. The teasing (read: bullying) that arose from my hair was unpleasant, to say the least.

10. You are going to live in a biodome beneath the sea for the next three years and have been allotted space for just ONE book (tiny dome!) What cherished book will keep you entertained for the next 1095 days?
Does a multi-volume mass book count? If so, I choose the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

  1. Hi Liz, happy to see you:)
    Spicy Chicken Alfredo sounds excellent and I love the thought of making my own last meal, like, lemme get the herbs from my garden, I'll be right back!
    Your lottery answer was very well phrased. We don't carry debt, but the freedom from bills and budgeting, the freedom to splurge occasionally without thought or regret would be the ultimate way to live.
    It looks like unfortunate hairdos plagued most of us, mine were 6th and 8th grade mishaps. Sorry to hear about the bullying, if kids knew they caused wounds whose scars we carried into adulthood I'd like to think they'd draw less blood. Oh, I know what you mean about heels and dancing, we just started ballroom lessons and my husband is 5-6 inches taller, but I suck in heels. Gonna have to try to minimize the height disparity and wear a pair, though it's much easier to dance with our instructor who is my eye level.

  2. Gosh, I sure would like to buy my freedom too.

    It's tough to be a heels girl in a flats kind of life, lol. I have the same issue with a vertically challenged hubby.

    I love The Chronicles Of Narnia; excellent choice!

  3. LIZ!!!! So glad to see you again!

    Stickers are freakin' addictive. I have to ignore the sticker aisle, or I tend to want them all. I haven't even looked at my own collection for almost a year now because I love them all but just don't know what I'll ever use them for. lol


  4. Stickers! Stickers are kind of the best - just a fun little treat. I found this vendor on Etsy that deals in vintage stickers from the '80s (oof, is that what I am now, somebody that can be called "vintage"?) - some of them are quite expensive ($8 US for a single Garfield scratch 'n' sniff of Garfield toting a giant chicken on his back? Actually, now that I write it out like that, I think I might really need that sticker!)

    And a multi-volume mass book totally counts! Compendium it up. :)

  5. Liz!!! <3

    I had a package sent to me a day ago that had the cutest stickers on the items inside and I thought of you. It made me want to go sticker shopping. I got a new job and will need a better teacher planner this year so I am already looking at different ones online. I feel the rabbit hole opening up! LOL! And I had to laugh at you cooking your own Spicy Chicken Alfredo. Love it. I need to go back and see if this was one you shared the recipe for.

    I hope you can buy your freedom one day.
