100 questions tag (in which I only answer 50 because I’m lazy)

on April 16, 2016

Happy Saturday everyone! Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend so far. I love a Saturday, so I’ve decided to celebrate with an impromptu tag. I saw this one on Lizzie’s blog – Accio Padfoot – and thought it looked fun. You can check out her answers here, and you should also go follow her blog because it’s awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

There are technically 100 questions in this tag, but I’ve chosen 50, because after I’d written out my answers to all 100 the word count was intimidatingly gargantuan.

Before I get started, I just want to share some news which had me squealing and happy-dancing this week… I just reached 500 followers on my blog!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

500

I am so happy, so thank you to every single person who takes the time to read my rabid-fangirl book ramblings (and fangirl with me!) I am so grateful for all of the amazing people I’ve met through joining the book-blogging community! โค


1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?

Closed. Iโ€™m paranoid spidersโ€™ll crawl in there and give me a nasty surprise when I put my skinny jeans on, if you catch my drift?

2. Do you take the shampoo or conditioner bottles from hotels?

Nope. Iโ€™m allergic to most products and can only use sensitive-skin stuff. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

3. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?

In, because Iโ€™m paranoid spidersโ€™ll crawl in there and give me a nasty surprise when I wake up in the morning. Are you noticing a pattern here?

4. Have you ever stolen a street sign before?

Not that Iโ€™m aware of…

5. Would you rather be attacked by big bears or bees?

Bears, Iโ€™m terrified of insects (see spider paranoia above).

6. Do you always smile for pictures?

Yeah, but in a Chandler Bing kind of a way…

7. What is your biggest pet peeve?

Eating noises. They make me die inside.

8. Do you ever count your steps when you walk?

No, because Iโ€™m usually thinking about something else, for example how tired I am, where the nearest place I can rest my weary head is, the book Iโ€™m reading, or bacon.

9. Have you ever peed in the woods?

I went drunken camping as a teenager. Of course.

10. What about pooped in the woods?

No, although I once had a really weird dream that I pooed in the road at Cannes Film Festival and Robert Pattinson caught me doing it. Make of that what you will.

11. Do you ever dance when there is no music playing?

No, but I desk dance whilst listening to my iPod at work always.

12. Do you chew your pens and pencils?

Yeah.

13. What size is your bed?

Single, but itโ€™s really more like half a single because I own more cuddly animals than is appropriate for a 25 year old human.

14. What is your song of the week?

Pillowtalk by Zayn Malik. Yeah, Iโ€™m one of those people who cried when Zayn left One Direction. But I am kinda digging his new album.

15. Is it okay for guys to wear pink?

Of course. Itโ€™s okay for anyone to wear anything they want.

16. Do you still watch cartoons?

Yeah. I really prefer childrenโ€™s movies to adult movies, tbh.

17. Whatโ€™s your least favourite movie?

I hate to say it, but it has to be that awful adaptation of City of Bones. I cringed so hard all the way through it, and I was so disappointed as it’s one of my favourite books. Shadhowhunters is a million times better โค

18. Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had any?

Probably somewhere really obvious. Iโ€™m the worst liar. Donโ€™t ever hire me to be a drug mule, because Iโ€™ll Piper Chapman you for sure.

19. What do you dip a chicken nugget in?

MAYO. ALL THE MAYO.

20. What is your favourite food?

Gravy.

21. What movies could you watch over and over again and still love?

The Sound of Music and Bridget Jones’s Diary.

22. Last person you kissed/kissed you?

My boyfriend. โค

(This was the only normal facial expression from him in this series of photos. I wanted to take selfies and he insisted on messing up all of them by pulling weird faces haha.)

23. Would you ever strip or pose naked in a magazine?

24. When was the last time you wrote a letter on paper?

Honestly can’t remember… Iโ€™m mainly about Whatsapp. But I am *that* person who is abysmal at replying in group chat.

25. Favourite kind of sandwich?

BACON.

26. Best thing to eat for breakfast?

Marmite on toast.

27. Are you lazy?

Extremely.

28. How many languages can you speak?

I can only speak English, and a tiny bit of French (although I really only know how to ask where the nearest supermarket is, and the last time I was in Paris I asked it of an English-speaking person IN FRONT OF the nearest supermarketโ€ฆ)

29. Do you have any magazine subscriptions?

No. I used to buy this UK celebrity gossip magazine every week, but then I realised all they do is attack women in a written format. Also I did work experience there, and I accidentally lost the editor in chiefโ€™s movie premiere tickets, and got ink on a dress that was supposed to be used for a photoshoot, so I sort of cringe every time I think about it really.

30. Do you watch any soap operas?

I watch Hollyoaks (a UK soap) and have done since I was about 14. I also once had a job interview to write for the show, but I may have ever-so-slightly accidentally fangirled over the set and brief glimpses of the cast. I did not get the job…

[Sidenote: wow, reading those last 2 answers back, my life sounds like one of those romcoms with the stereotypical *ditzy girl* that keeps messing everything up haha…]

31. Are you afraid of heights?

Nah.

DCIM100MEDIA

32. Last time you got a portrait taken by a photographer?

Maybe at school? I hate having my photo taken, unless I’m in control of the camera and can make sure my face doesn’t look weird.

33. Do you think musicals are cheesy?

Yes and thatโ€™s why I love them.

34. Is Christmas stressful?

Yes. All those relatives crowded into one room arguing about politics, when all you want to do is crawl into bed and read Harry Potter… Gotta love Christmas though โค

35. Occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid?

Haha umm… Iโ€™ll let this excerpt from my year 7 diary do the talking:

year7diary

36. Do you believe in ghosts?

Sometimes.

37. Ever had a deja-vu feeling?

All the time.

38. Take a vitamin daily?

Nah, I eat vegetables.

39. Wear slippers?

IMG_0420

40. Wear a bath robe?

Only when at a spa (that makes it sound like thatโ€™s a regular occurrenceโ€ฆ ha!)

41. What do you wear to bed?

A nightie. Iโ€™m a bit of a Grandma.

42. First concert?

I went to see S Club 7 when I was 10 years old. For non-Brits:

43. Nike or Adidas?

I’m just not sporty in the slightest.

44. Hot tea or cold tea?

Hot tea, but I do love peach iced tea in the summer.

45. Tea or coffee?

Tea. I hate the smell and taste of coffee, although I will drink it if it contains pumpkin spice or gingerbread syrup.

46. Sugar or snickerdoodles?

What’s a snickerdoodle?! I’m guessing I can eat it? ๐Ÿ˜›

47. Are you patient?

HAHAHAHA.

48. Can you knit or crochet?

No. I used to be able to knit and I made a big fluffy pom pom thing when I was about 10, but I forget how.

49. Do you cry and throw a fit until you get your own way?

HAHAHAHA.

50. Whatโ€™s your favourite colour?

Turquoise.

  1. I keep my closet doors closed too because I am super paranoid! My favourite color is mint green! I definitely prefer Tea and to be killed by bears!

    • mudandstars says:

      Haha, I’m glad I’m not the only one who is paranoid about this!! And definitely death by bear over death by bee – I’m just envisioning something like the tracker jackers in The Hunger Games, which would pretty much be my worst nightmare!

  2. Congrats on 500 followers!!

  3. 1.) congrats on 500 followers! That is crazy amazing!!!! My goal this month is to reach 100, so I bow before greatness!
    2) spiders are freaky bastards
    3) snicker doodles are sugar cookies with cinnamon and sugar on top
    4) I threw up a little in my mouth when you said you use mayo for dip

    • mudandstars says:

      Thanks so much!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I was really excited when I got the notification! And your blog is awesome, so I have no doubt you will reach it very soon ๐Ÿ™‚ Spiders are indeed freaky bastards. When it gets to September/early Autumn and spider season starts, I start getting really paranoid and jumping every time I feel something, thinking one has landed on me. Ooh snickerdoodles definitely sound like my kinda thing. And hahaha, not a mayo fan? But it’s sooo good, especially with fries. ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. CONGRATULATIONS!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I really loved reading this, and I love your slippers SO much ๐Ÿ˜›

  5. Congrats on 500 followers!! Thatโ€™s an incredible accomplishment!

  6. Congrats, 500 followers is a-mazing. ๐Ÿ™‚ Laughed so much at some of your answers – especially your old diary one! Looking back on old status updates and the like is the best/worst!

    • mudandstars says:

      Ahh thanks!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Haha, glad you enjoyed the diary entry. Best and the worst definitely sums it up… And when I was trying to find that status, I ended up finding all my embarrassing drunk statuses from uni too. I still have the actual diary in my drawer somewhere; it’s the most hilariously cringey thing. Did you ever keep a diary?

  7. Congratulations on 500 followers! You really deserve all of them!
    I’m trying to think who would steal a street sign….

  8. Congrats on getting 500 followers!๐Ÿ˜Š Oh I share the spider paranoia all the way! But i find it so hard to keep them away ๐Ÿ˜‘

    • mudandstars says:

      Ahh thank you!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Ooh, glad I’m not the only one, although not glad for you as having a phobia of spiders is no fun at all. And I know what you mean, it’s like they know we’re afraid of them so they think it’s funny to come into our houses and make the situation worse… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      • Agree! It’s so annoying when people who don’t mind spiders have homes that are free of them and people like us have to homes that are perfect for the spiders and they sit staring at us from the walls, ceilings and cracks ๐Ÿ˜

      • mudandstars says:

        So true!! It’s extremely unfair. I remember somebody told me once that spiders don’t like conkers, and if you put them around your room it keeps them away. But I can confirm it definitely does not work haha ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      • Oh ouch! ๐Ÿ˜• that’s so scary!

  9. booksnbrainsblog says:

    Congrats on 500! And Bridget Jones is a classic…love it so much!!

  10. Ahh, congrats on 500 followers that’s so awesome!!! Also I totally relate to you only doing 50 questions because of laziness ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    And I am beyond jealous that you saw S Club 7, haha. I was obsessed with them when I was a kid (and still enjoy their music now). I watched the TV Shows and even had all the dolls and collected this magazine about them lmao.

    • mudandstars says:

      Ahh thanks so much!! ๐Ÿ˜€ And 10 year old me would have been very jealous of your S Club 7 dolls. I used to love Miami 7 too! And definitely still love a bit of S Club โค They did a reunion tour last year and me and my friend went for the nostalgia- it was kind of amazing haha ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. cute minions slippers ๐Ÿ˜€

  12. hahah I like how many times you just answered by laughing!!

  13. lunireads says:

    Congrats on 500 followers! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. Annelise Lestrange says:

    THIS POST WAS JUST BRILLIANT! I laughed so hard that I can’t breathe while I type! I can’t get enough of your awesomeness, Jess!! โค (also, as I type this, I'm wearing Goofy's slippers because winter is presenting itself in the middle of Autumn lol)

    • mudandstars says:

      Hahah wow, I’m glad it made you laugh that much!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Jealous of your Goofy slippers!! But not jealous of the winter – we finally have some sunshine here and I’m making the most of it for once โค

      • Annelise Lestrange says:

        Check your Twitter messages later, haha! And I’m not jealous of your summer because I’m haveing a cold day with a lovely sun shinning on the sky LOL I told you the sun is never turned off in Brazil lol
