20(ish) Questions

pile of question marks

I’ve decided to take a bit of a break from blog awards, but when I’m nominated for awards I’ll answer the questions posed to me in this 20(ish) questions format, along with assorted other question tags and the like.  Feel free to join in the fun with your own answers to any or all of the questions 🙂


Questions from Ida at Around the ward in 80 days:

  1. Has blogging been as you imagined it to be?  It has truly been all that and a bag of chips! (salt and vinegar, please)
  2. What’s your dream collaboration?  Ida mentioned a vibrator company, and I think I’ll have to second that idea
  3. Would you ever do other formats besides writing, such as youtube or podcasts?  I write much more intelligently and coherently than I speak.  When I’m being recorded I turn into a bumbling idiot, so I try to avoid that as much as possible.
  4. Talk us through your process of writing a post.  Sometimes it just flows and 5 minutes later I’m done, and sometimes I’ll work on something in dribs and drabs over the space of a few weeks.  First step in my process is the idea, second step is the title, third step is the image to go with the post, and then I bumble along from there.
  5. Do you get writer’s block?  Yes, although often it’s less of a specific writer’s block and more my brain deciding to take an extended road trip out to stupid-ville.  Sometimes it’s an overnight trip, and other times its a more extended say.
  6. What’s worse, a writer’s block or a cock block? (You can change this one into ‘what’s your favourite colour?’)  I myself seem to be a walking, talking, one-woman cock blocking machine, so I’m pretty used to that, and therefore I’d say writer’s block.
  7. Pitch your blog to me with one sentence.  Mental health, guinea pigs, yaks, and yurts – what more could one ask for?


Questions from A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip‘s Friday Funday Challenge: Ok, so I’m not actually doing the challenge, but I did want to join in the fun and answer a few of the rather morbidly themed questions.

  • If you were facing the death penalty what would be your last meal choice??  A big ole bucket of chicken from KFC.
  • Have you ever had your tarot read?  By a friend who was quirky, to say it politely (although leaning more towards the nutty end of the spectrum). I would have more faith in a reading from my guinea pigs.
  • Would you sleep inside a coffin underground for a night?  No, no, a million times no.  The most claustrophobic space I’ve ever been in was the Cu Chi tunnels used by the Viet Cong in the Vietnam war.  The panic was not a pleasant experience, to say the least.
  • What is your best detective series?  Nancy Drew, hands down.
  • Are you afraid of clowns?  Only the clown from Stephen King’s It.  That thing scared the bejeezus out of me.
  • Of all the ways a person could commit murder which do you think is the worst? Why?  Well, they wouldn’t have called it murder, but the old British punishment of drawing and quartering gives me the heebie-jeebies.
  • If you were a detective investigating a murder what would your first steps be at the scene of a brutal death?  I’d call Starsky and Hutch, and when they came in to check out the scene I’d go out and “borrow” their car for a joyride.
  • Hanging, Injection, guilotine or firing squad what would you prefer?  Injection all the way.
  • What time of the day is the best time to commit a murder?  Between 3 and 4 am.  The night owls have gone to bed, and the early birds like me are sitting at home drinking tea.
  • Do you look guilty?  Not necessarily, but the guinea pigs do.
  • Uh oh, you have witnessed a murder, and you think the killer may have seen you but you are not sure, what would you do?  I would move to Kyrgyzstan and live in a yurt in the mountains, with a herd of yaks as a protection detail.
  • You are a suspect in a murder enquiry that you ‘know about’, what is your alibi to throw them off your scent?  I don’t operate well under pressure, so I’d probably totally lose it and give a false confession.
  • Whilst gardening the body of a neigbour is discovered in your back yard that everyone knows you had a feud with, what are you going to do to prove your innocence or?  Who says I’m innocent?


Come on, you know you want to answer a few – that’s what the comments section is for!
