Tag, you're it!

Hey there, happy 29th February! Did you know that traditionally, girls can propose to guys on this day? ^^

Anyway, a few weeks ago, I got tagged by the lovely Harley, and since I'm such a slow coach, I've only just caught up with the game!

Song of the day: Rival by Mintjam (I do believe this is the first Japanese song I've posted on here!)

So, here's how you play:
♥ Put the rules of this Tag on your blog.
♥ Everyone tagged should tell 4 things about themselves, answer the 4 questions asked by the person who tagged you, tag 4 other people and ask them 4 different questions.
♥ Let the people whom you tagged know you've done so.
♥ Don't tag anyone who's been tagged before.
♥ Really do tag 4 others, and don't go all "if you want to, take this tag".


OK, here we go! Firstly, four pieces of information about myself...

1.) I like to knit things. I learned this ancient craft for kicks back when I was a kid, forgot about it for over fifteen years and picked it up again last October. Let me tell you now that if you come out of the closet to me as a knitter, then I will forever consider you cool.

See the little belt on Snowy? That's the first thing I ever knitted!
But it was supposed to be a scarf.
Oh well.

A Christmas present I made for a friend! ^^

A work in progress...

2.) The state of my dorm room is a measure of my sanity. When people are in my room, I will automatically start to tidy it.

Right now this room suggests an intermediate state of mind, in which I am clawing my way back to a state of normality i.e. nothing is going wrong with my lab project right now fingers-crossed-don't-jinx-this!

3.) A recent medical test has concluded that I am allergic to cinnamic alcohol.

This is a chemical that is found in perfumes and perfumed cosmetic products. If you have any product that smells of cinnamon, daffodil, hyacinth or jasmine, then chances are, it will contain cinnamic alcohol and I will break out into a rash if I stand next to you after a very very long period of time.

Yum yum.

4.) I can spin pens:

But not like that though.

I only know the basic tricks ~ thumbaround, reverse thumbaround, sonic, and the charge...all of which I learned last year instead of studying.

Being able to spin pens makes you look like you know what you are doing when you are sitting in the exam hall.


Now for Harley's questions:

What would you like your last meal to be? You can have as many courses as you like.

Uhm, this is a bit of a toughie. I'm pretty terrified of death, and live in the delusion that one day my consciousness will be able to be downloaded into a badass clone of myself. And then I could eat and eat and eat and download my consciousness into another clone to eat more, and do other things in between, so this meal would in fact be never-ending. Yeah.

If you could travel back in time, what time would you visit?

I'd travel to the future and nab myself a piece of machinery that would enable me to fly. Although if I could only go back in time, then I think I'd like to visit Ancient Egypt and convince them to make a statue of me that is bigger and better than the Sphinx. Or to when I'm a child and warn my younger self about my mistakes. Of course that'd probably result in some kind of paradox wherein I destroy my present self by changing the past, but who knows? Maybe the new me will have succeeded in world domination and then it would be all worth it? But then it wouldn't be cool if the me me wasn't around to see it...

If you could make one book/movie character real, and bring them into your life, who would it be?

Artemis Fowl. Because the world needs more teenage criminal masterminds. Because he is Irish and because he believes in fairies.

What keeps you awake at night?

The fear that if I fall asleep, I may dream of disproportionately large fish.

Like the ones you can see here, only bigger, and not as colourful:


OK, I'm done! Now, who to tag...*squints*...eeny meeny miny mo...I choose you, Pikachu! Only kidding, I tag: Kimmy, Junjun, TGTBATB and Michy!

Questions I have for you aaaaaaaaaaaare:

1.) What would your dream house look like?
2.) If you could have any magical power in the world, what would it be?
3.) What makes you embarrassed?
4.) If you were given a coconut right now, how would you open it?

Go forth, spread the tag, and everyone else, I'd love to see your answers in the comments! :D

    1. Patience my dear, and someone to keep reminding you of what you do wrong.
