Rule two: answer the questions the person who tagged you asked and write 11 new ones
Rule three: tag 11 people and link them to the post
Rule four: actually tell them you tagged them
I shall tag lyssasoulless, vefalasiel, and anyone else that wants to do this.
I was tagged by Dragonsquill, here’s my answers to her questions:
What’s your favorite hot beverage? Homemade mint and ginger tea is my favourite, but lately my dirty secret has been plunger coffee with a spoonful of Nutella stirred in: Home-made hazelnut mocha. Disgusting, but so good.
What’s your best theater-going movie experience? Seeing Lord of the Rings when it first came out (the first film). People were so proud and impressed they applauded when the film finished. It would have been seeing the NTlive Corialanus, but I forgot to check the running time and had to leave before the end to pick my son up from school. Sigh.
If you could interview one fictional character, who would it be? the discworld’s Nanny Ogg. I get the feeling that would be an education.
If you were a were-person, what kind of animal would you transform into? I’d like to say something kick-ass, like a panther, but honestly it’d probably be something like a fantail, or a rabbit.
What’s the most overrated book you’ve ever read? 50 Shades of Grey. Quite a few of the ladies at my work were reading it and raving about it, so I thought I’d judge it on its own merits, and honestly…I’ve read so much gay incestuous dwarf porn that’s so much better. The characterisations were insufferable, and there were so many abusive relationship issues, I just couldn’t excuse it. And honestly, if you’re tackling subjects like anal fisting, would it kill you to say “cunt” instead of “my…down there” for the 18th time this chapter?
What’s your favorite animated film? Ghost in the Shell. I’ve also got a soft spot for Miyasaki.
If you could teach a class in anything, what would be in? Sex-ed. Seriously, I’d kill that class. I’d educate everyone that no, girls don’t pee out the vagina; no, your first time isn’t supposed to hurt; consent guidelines; gender and intersex issues; the importance of protection and lube. I want to teach this class.
What’s your favorite flower? Peonies.
Invisibility or teleportation? Teleportation. I’d save so much money on petrol.
If you had to pick one color to wear for the rest of your life, what would it be? Blue. I look good in just about every shade, and jeans would be easy to find. Green or black are close seconds.
Which fantasy creature do you want for a pet? Khoshekh from Welcome to Nightvale. I love cats, a levitating one would be right up my alley.
My 11 questions are the same as the above, but you can substitute any of the following:
Describe your ideal date?
Do you have any siblings?
If you could commit any crime once without any bad consequences, what would it be?
Name: Dominique ) Nickname: Meke (pronounced Mee-Kee), Dom, Liquid Pete (my husband and call each other all sorts of two-word phrases. Completely random ones. Haberdashery Shrimp is another common one.) Birthday: Feb 6th Gender: Female Sexual orientation: Bisexual Height: 5’4.5” Favourite colors: Blue, silver, pink for flowers but not much else. Time and date it is here: November 17th, 4.48pm Average hours of sleep a night: Usually around 6 - not quite enough. Lucky number: 6 Last thing I googled was: Howick Little Theatre Studio Most used phrase(s): Fuck, Put that down, Do I have to?, Turn that down please. First word(s) that come to mind: Expensive plates. Last thing I said to a family member: I don’t need to see your bum, thank you. My son is in that stage that boys go through between the ages of 4-97 where bums are the height of hilarity. One place that makes me happy: The beach. No beach in particular, although we’ve got lots of lovely ones near our home. Just up a pohutukawa tree, looking out over the ocean is the best thing. How many blankets I sleep under: 1 sheet, 1 blanket and a duvet. Depending on how hot it is, it can vary between just a sheet, and all the above plus pj’s and another blanket. Favourite fictional character: Anathema Device, Nanny Ogg, Magrat, Vimes, Lady Sybil, Vetinari, Angua, Carrot (all from Pratchett’s Discworld series, except for Anathema Device who’s from Pratchett and Gaiman’s Good Omens) Favourite food: Salad sandwiches, hot chips, mint icecream. Dream holiday: Several months in Ireland, Croatia and France would be sweet, or road-tripping around NZ. Dream wedding: Our wedding was pretty awesome, we had it in my mum’s backyard. We made all the food ourselves the day before, got married in the afternoon, had dinner with family, then all the “adults” left and our friends (mostly siblings) dragged all the cushions and blankets in the house outside and we got drunk on the deck. I’d love to do a vow renewal in Singapore in a few years. Lace knee-length dress, orchids, cocktails. Dream job: Performer. I’d love to get paid to act, sing, dance etc. I’m applying for a job (office work but hey) for a local theatre which is a step in the right direction. I hope I get it.
Now I have to tag folks!!
