Anything But Books Tag created by Katie @ReadOrRot

Fun Post Time

I’ve been reading some great posts for this book tag and thought it about time I joined in.

Name your favourite cartoon

Garfield! (anyone now humming the theme tune? I know I am!)

One of my favourites is a Thanksgiving episode. Garfield has got himself stuck at a butchers in place of a turkey. An old lady comes in and says to the butcher, ‘Can I have one without fur, please?’

Name a song which is your current favourite

I recently heard Footloose again and am now determined to learn all the lyrics so I can genuinely sing it and not mumble the bits I don’t know.

What could you do for hours that isn’t reading?

Really, really tough as I LOVE reading. BUT, I also enjoy walking out in nature, especially in Spring and Summer. At home I tramp along the local canal and investigate the countryside.

What do you love to do that your followers would be surprised about?

I do like to dance. Whilst looking up the lyrics for Footloose (see above) I found video clips of Flash Mob dancing. Brilliant! You must watch this.

What is your favourite, unnecessarily specific thing to learn about?

Geneology – I take great delight in researching the family tree and finding out about our ancestors.

What is something unusual that you know how to do?

I know how to do a Tsukahara Vault (I’m busy right now, so here’s a clip of someone else!)

Name something you made in the last year

I made a cake and actually followed the recipe! It’s a standard joke in our house that I throw together ingredients and cook almost everything at 180c for 30 minutes.

What is your most recent none-book personal project?

My year long challenge to do ONE good deed a day for a whole year. I loved it so much I did it for two years. I took it on after reading a book! A Year of Doing Good by Judith O’Reilly. Shh! Pretend I didn’t mention a book!

Tell us something you think about often

I often think about my friends and how I can help them.

Tell us something that’s your favourite, but make it oddly specific.

I’ve always been drawn to a cosy ‘me-cave’ I would love a bed with curtains. Years ago I remember seeing one (similar to the picture below) in a French museum farmhouse and I wanted to climb right in. They make me feel safe.
