A Game of Tag

I have been tagged by Kizzylee to play a game of tag. This is basically a series of questions for me to answer so that people can learn things about me and also I can tag other bloggers to learn about them. Like the awards that are shared between bloggers it’s a great way of feeling part of the wordpress community and attracting new readers to your blog and above all else it’s great fun and a good way to break my day up.

The Rules

  • Post rules
  • Answer the questions set for you in their post
  • Then it’s your turn to “tag” 11 people with a link to your post
  • Let them know they’ve been tagged
  • Create 11 new questions or use the same ones to ask the people you’ve tagged.
  • Link back to the person who tagged you

My Answers as follows

what do you think makes a good blog?

For me honesty is the biggest thing that appeals to me. I like blogs with humour, I tend to specialise in the type of humour that puts me down but that’s just my way.  A very competent (read incredible) blogger called Timethief gave me some important advice which was an eyeopener especially as she took the time to visit my blog for a start

“You are doing well. Authenticity is the character trait of being genuine, honest with oneself as well as others. Your writing is authentic and you are developing your writer’s voice. To thine oneself be true.”

Makes a lot of sense doesn’t it?

One also important thing – PARAGRAPHS! please it makes it easier for the reader!

can you describe one moment in your life that was fabulous?

Easy this one. The moment when Sheryl arrived at the registry office and stood by my side ready to be married. We were both shaking so much we held onto each other with a mixture of pure love, excitement and nerves. The first moment I see her in her dress, biting her lip with nerves was a moment that will never leave me!

would you describe your favourite holiday?

My dream holiday would be to New York visiting all the famous mafia haunts. I am big mafia buff so seeing the old social clubs, locations of infamous hits even the house in Apalachin would be a dream for me! I would love to have my picture taken under a sign for Mulberry Street and Little Italy. After that strolling through central park with Sheryl by my side, taking in the sights like Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. My mouth is dribbling at the thought, and yet it will never happen 😦

what is your fave time of year ? and why?

I love the winter a lot more than summer. I cannot stand the heat (which is why I am never in the kitchen hehehe) My flat is always hotter than outside come summertime and for me it is a lot easier to get warmer than it is to get cooler! Rainy days are my favourite!

what is the one piece of advice you would give to your teenage self?

Easy one this. Stay in school and revise for the love of god revise! Hindsight is a wonderful thing isn’t it! I will always regret wasting my intelligence!

what ambitions did you have as a child?

Professional footballer and nothing else mattered.

if you could go back and do it all again would you change anything?

Some aspects yes but I try to live by the “things happen for a reason” ideal. I may have done things differently but if I had would I now have a beautiful wife and wonderful (if slightly annoying) kids? Depression aside I have the things I need and doing things differently may have altered that.

what was your  fave toy as a child?

Not sure it can classed as a toy as such but for me it was a football. Playing over the park with my twin brother for hours in all weathers was all I enjoyed! No playstation or x-box this wonderful thing called the “outside” was where I spent my childhood!

what celebrity do you have a crush on?

My first crush was Susannah Hoff from the Bangles! wow those eyes!

Today its Mila Kunis, another woman with stunning eyes.

Sooooooooooo dreamy………..

what was your last dream and could you find a meaning for it ? ( keep it family friendly though folks :) )

I rarely remember my dreams but the most vivid one I have had recently was when I had to rescue Sheryl from some form of game show. Think “running man” type of game show not deal or no deal. I had to fight people, go through obstacles find my way through mazes it was just bizarre!

what is your film  and why?

My film would be the Godfather. I am Michael Corleone starting out as a man trying to find his own way in life but drawn back into a situation and life that he thought was never for him. Yet all along he was the right man for the role of family protector and his “at all costs” attitude to protect his family resonates with me. I also have the same mannerisms in terms of the rational thought with the sudden explosive temper! Like Michael I am a shouter LOL

And now my turn to tag 11 people, to be honest I would much rather everyone who follows me (all 53 of you!) answered these questions from Kizzylee. I am keen to learn more about all of you. So please have a go and forgive my cheating!

Have a great day people I know I will!!!

 

UPDATED 24/07/12

So seeing as not one single person has played I am going to tag some bloggers who I would like to answer this and see if peer pressure works on them 🙂

  1. Always loved the game of tag and hide and seek. Think I’ll hide from this game though. Never did like answering questions about myself like this, brings out my dark side and we don’t need that! Kudos to those who love it (you know who you are) and do it so well.
    I will answer one question.

    what is your fave time of year ? and why?

    “I love the winter a lot more than summer. I cannot stand the heat (which is why I am never in the kitchen hehehe) My flat is always hotter than outside come summertime and for me it is a lot easier to get warmer than it is to get cooler! Rainy days are my favourite!I”

    I couldn’t have said it better! 🙂
