Rule 1: always post the rules

Rule 2: always answer the questions the person who tagged you asked and write your questions

Rule 3: tag 11 people

Rule 4: actually tell them you tagged them

1) If you suddenly acquired a huge amount of money what would you spend it on?

I would probably buy a car and put some money aside for future car insurance (what a boring and practical answer).

2) Do you believe in ghosts? why?

The closer it gets to Halloween the less I believe, simply because they become very commercialised. However, I do believe in some sort of spirit of the afterlife.

3) Have you ever managed to keep a diary?

Yes! When I was younger I’d write about my day on scraps of paper and most of these have been lost over the years. However, since the 20th December 2012 I have kept a diary everyday with only a few exceptions (i.e. on residentials etc. when I haven’t wanted to bring it with me) when I have summarised the missed days.

4) Do you have any nicknames? If so what?

im-not-normal-at-all calls me ‘Bookworm’ and I used to get called ‘Tony’ by my friends in year eleven.

5) What’s the one thing you want to do in life before you die?

6) Do you have any favourite quotes?

I have so many! Pretty much anything by John Green, especially

"nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.”

Which I use at least once a week.

At the moment I also have a bank of favourite quotes/poems from World War One related literature, including:

"They surpassed us only in phrases and cleverness" -which is a German soldiers description of a German officer from Erich Maria Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western Front.

A. ‘I was a “have”.’ B. ‘I was a “have-not”.’
(Together). ‘What hast thou given which I gave not?’” - which is Rudyard Kipling’s Equality of Sacrifice, one of his many epitaphs of the war. You know who Rudyard Kipling is, right? The guy who wrote The Jungle Book and who lost his son in the First World War after fighting to put him there?

7) Favourite telly show and Otp?

Ahh, I’ve stopped watching a lot of TV. I quite like Queer of Folk at the moment, which is a programme I never expected to like, and my OTP from that is Michael and Ben.

8) If you could travel to anywhere in the world and stay there for 2 weeks where would you go?

Somewhere in France. I mean, I’m going to France later this year for a week but I’d really like to just go on my own somewhere non-English speaking so I’d be forced to speak the language.

9) What’s your best achievement?

I think it’s probably my GCSEs at the moment. There are lots of things I’m proud of, but my results would be the best “achievement”.

10) What’s the last book that you read? Would you read it again?

The last book I read was All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque, which I borrowed from my English Literature teacher but I’m definitely going to buy my own copy in the future and re-reading it when I’m not focused on how I could use it for my exam.

My Questions:

  1. If you had a snail that could magically grant wishes, what would you name it? 
  2. If you had the choice to live with a gorilla who knows sign language or a dog who sings lullabies, which do you choose? 
  3. What would a Utopian society be to you?
  4. Would you rather be a dog or cat? Why?
  5. If you could ask one person (alive or dead) three questions who would you ask and what would the questions be?
  6. What’s the earliest thing you can remember?
  7. Would you like to be someone of the opposite sex for the week, just to see what it’s like?
  8. What would you do to your worst enemy if you had the chance to do anything you wanted? 
  9. Is there anybody in your life that you miss at the moment?
  10. Have you ever caved in to peer pressure?  If so, what was it and how would you have changed it if you could go back in time?

will you marry me = a marriage proposal
will, you, Mary, me = a foursome proposal

Will you, Mary me = Cavewoman Mary helps Will recover from his Amnesia

Will, you marry me. = Will’s time-traveling partner

And people keep trying to tell me that punctuation isn’t important
