Thanks @saranintai for tagging me! I didn’t want to clog up the main discworld99 blog with personal stuff but I’m happy to answer your questions.
RULES: Always post the rules. Answer the questions asked, then
write 11 new ones. Tag 11 people to answer your questions, as well as
the person who tagged you.
1: What is a hobby or passion you have that your Tumblr friends might not expect?
Martial arts I guess? I do aikido & iaido and I used to do taiji.
2: What would your autobiography be titled?
“Thank God It’s Not [insert my real name here]”, because my neighbor once said that when she opened her door to someone who wasn’t me and didn’t know I was in hearing range. I honestly have no idea why she said that but it cemented my status as a true iconic duck, so, thanks ugly neighbor. :)
3: What would your death row last meal be?
Honestly the fear of death would suck out any enjoyment from my last meal. So idk. Let’s say vegetarian pozole rojo, fresh mangoes, & chocolate lava cake.
4: Who is your favorite fictional character? Why?
Tie between Scott McCall from Teen Wolf and Cordelia Chase from BtVS/Angel.
5: Who was your first fictional crush?
Idk what this means, what counts as a fictional crush?
6: Everyone has at least one opinion about something absolutely pointless that they would DIE defending. For example, mine is that the wavy side of the bobby pin is supposed to face up and I will fight you if you say otherwise. What is your pointless yet passionate opinion?
Avocados are bad and y’all should feel bad if u defend those worthless husks of sickly green.
7: What is something everyone else seems to love but you find overrated?
SEE ABOVE. Fuck avocados.
8: What is your most irrational fear? Why are you afraid of it?
Bitch I have OCD my entire life is irrational fears.
9: What is your absolute favorite thing about yourself?
When I come up with The Really Good Jokes. I love that feeling.
10: If you could become amazing at something overnight, what would you choose?
I would choose to become amazing at being rich and having my dream job. Also at drawing.
11: What book do you believe should be mandatory reading for the universe? Why?
Hmm idk that’s hard because I feel like different books are useful for different people at different stages of their lives/the universe! I guess I would say Nation by Terry Pratchett because it’s an Important Book and I like it a lot and I wish more people read it. But tbh it’s still probably not for everyone and there’s a lot of other books I could say here and again I don’t really think you can classify any book as mandatory for the Entire Universe.
OK, my questions:
1: How do you pronounce ‘apricot’?
2: If you could create a new reality TV competition, what would it be?
3: Favorite drink?
4: In the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare, the three witches, the weird sisters, are often blamed for planting
the seed of treachery in Macbeth’s mind – yet the root of the word
“wyrd” goes back to the Anglo-Saxon word for “fate”. Does thinking
something is fated make it happen? How much personal agency do we have
against fate? MLA format.
5: If you could seize control of one TV show, currently airing or not, and redo it from a certain point onwards, which show would it be and how would you change it?
6: What’s one thing you would change about Tumblr? (The interface itself, not the people.)
8: Most underrated meme?
9: Most overrated meme?
10: Prove that the photoelectric effect cannot occur with a completely free electron, i.e. one not bound to an atom.
