Band of Bloggers: Vol. 20 / August 2017

Pop quiz, hotshot: How well do you know your favourite Band of Bloggerette? Sure, we're all reasonably up to date on each other's interests, hobbies and the pretty, glittery things that make our hearts go pitter pat, but when it comes to the vitally important markers of a person's character - favourite band, desert island scent, fight stance in the zombie apocalypse - how well do we truly know our virtual neighbours? :) Let's delve into 10 deeply random questions and find out, shall we?

1. No really, zombie apocalypse survival strategy: Fight or flight?
Flight, but I ain't makin' it far. I am definitely the fat kid who gets bitten and devoured first.

2. You've been a bad, bad kitty and you have just one final meal coming your way. What's on your plate?
Chicken fried steak with seasoned fries from Mama Kat's. Gravy on the side, obvs. I'm watching my figure before I meet my maker. ;)

3. Aside from wax (or nail polish, or crafting supplies, or beauty products) what item do you have major multiples of?
MOVIES! We have over 800 DVDs and Blu-rays in our collection!

4. You've just won the lottery. Before best friends you didn't even know you had begin to show up on your doorstep, what's the first thing you buy without even thinking twice?
A brand new bed, the kind that allows you to adjust your firmness, king size, brand new bed frame, new plush sheets, new fluffy pillows, and n a partridge in a pear tree.

5. Biggest celebrity crush? This can be anybody - an actress, a musician, a fictional character from a favourite movie, book or television show, or maybe even an historical figure.
It was Alan Rickman, may he rest in peace. Now that he has passed on, it's probably Michael Shannon. No judging!

6. Flats or heels? Or are you running barefoot through life like some sort of hippie?
F-L-A-T-S. I cannot do heels.

7. Whether it was created through a customs order or simple pick-and-mix blending at home, what's the greatest scent blend you've ever stumbled upon?
Pink peppermint all the things.
Wildberry mousse vanilla bean noel from Candles from the Keeping Room.
Vanilla bean noel, sweet lavender, peppermint from Rosegirls.
Watermelon, cotton candy, melon.

8. It's snack time! Are you reaching for the sweet or the salty?
Usually salty.

9. What's a personal style moment you'd never care to re-live?
My fourth-grade frizz-fro. My mom spent hours braiding my hair into individual little strands, and it looked so cool, but my hair in my fourth-grade photo looks like someone put me in a dryer, LOL.

10. You are going to live in a biodome beneath the sea for the next three years and have been allotted space for just ONE book (tiny dome!) What cherished book will keep you entertained for the next 1095 days?
1001 Movies to See Before You Die, because if I'm stuck at sea and don't have movies, at least I can read about the ones I haven't seen!

  1. LOL about the zombies! I'm 'flight' with you but if you read my answer you see we'll be okay because original (and proper) zombies are slow and stupid. We'll survive, Lauren! Well, at least until we have to start scrounging for food and eating roadkill....


    1. Ha! Super fast zombies are overrated, so as long as they are the proper slow ones, we will be alright! Let's just go to a pub like they did in "Shaun of the Dead"! :)

  2. I'm dying to see your movie collection, and explore it actually, see your prized films, special collector's editions, that sort. My dad has tons of dvds and some blu-rays, he's a huge movie buff yet his habits changed when he got the Amazon fire stick and now streams rather than collects. Probably better for his bank acct.
    And RIP dear Alan Rickman, one of the sexiest voices in the biz. I'm determined to make it through his filmography, even Galaxy Quest! No comment on Michael Shannon, watching him doesn't make me feel uneasy at all, nope, perfectly reasonable choice;)

  3. Impressive movie collection!

    Also, that bed sounds amazing; I need it in my life!

  4. Oh, that final meal sounds good - I'm down with that. Anything with cream gravy is actually okay in my books. You could pour it over cardboard and I'd probably eat it.

    So this is frightening, but I (we) somehow have more DVDs than you. And I don't even have a blog as an excuse - we just bought a freakin' ton of DVDs back before we started streaming things. These days we mainly only purchase the 3D animated movies that come out or the big blockbustery releases, but at last count? *Big gulp* - about 1,300. Hmm, sod the dresses I talked about - perhaps my answer should have been DVDs?!

    Michael Shannon is delicious - sexy voice, funny, well spoken. Ain't nothing wrong there.

  5. Ah yes. Fourth grade was my bad hair year too. What is up with that?! You make me wanna eat at Mama Katz. I think I need to come to Cali. And really, is there anything better than a brand new bed?! I love that you included all the trappings too.

    Alan Rickman. I can agree with that one for sure. Dang I miss him. I even teared up hearing his voice again in the latest Alice movie. :-(
