Marched So Fast

It’s still March right? Am I too late to answer the 12 Bloggerz questionnaire? This is a monthly feature being published by Rory from A Guy Called Bloke.

Okay …

Well you have come First in a Travel Competition you took part in and your prize is 1 Week Holiday in Medieval France [not pretend, virtual or fantasy but real time as in travel back through time]. I know, how lucky!

What five items ONLY will you take with you on your week away in Medieval France?

  • A digital camera
  • A box of SPAM
  • Since time travel is possible, it’s likely that an antidote for all allergies and anaphylaxes are available too, I’d take that with me
  • I’d take my Macbook with me — loaded with with music from Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Pharrell, Gwen Stefani, Lenny Kravitz, BTS, Gin Blossoms, Radiohead, and Nirvana and downloaded videos of Pretty Little Liars & Gossip Girl – I mean, in case I meet some super girly friends over there
  • I’ll take a bunch of power banks with me

What is the messiest meal you have ever eaten and why was it so?

I don’t really eat anything messy as I don’t like messy food or a messy plate but there’s this one time when my aunt brought me a full plate from the buffet at that one wedding we attended. She’s assigned herself to personally choose the dishes for me in front of everyone (so I really have to eat that hefty meal), oh migosh, that’s Vegas Vacation level of a mess.

There is a Flesh Eating Zombie apocalypse raging across the lands – which 5 Bloggers would you sign up to your cause to help you fight your way to victory and why them, what will they bring to the fight?

Only 5? Hmm… Let’s suppose Rory is already included by default:

  • I’d take Mr Bump because he will have practical solutions to the world’s problems + all those poems he’d bring in, I am sure we’d need some morbid fun during those times
  • I’d also have Sean because he’s the innovator among us plus, he’d bring in some good music
  • We need Markus and Micah to bring in wellness and with Micah’s gastronomical ingenuity, perhaps we’d survive longer
  • I’d have Aysa because she’d make it sassy, smart, and fun
  • And of course, I’d take Cindy. Calmness, beauty and spirit all rolled-in.

If you had to trade places with a celebrity for a day who would you pick and why?

With Lisa Bonet. You guess why.

Can you list five really funny comedians [any period of time]?

  • Vince Vaughn
  • Jack Black
  • Adam Sandler
  • Will Ferrell
  • Ricky Gervais

In a world of continued disposability what six items do you consider basic staples for each wardrobe irrelevant to the year? [as in these pieces never age]

  • Plain white shirt
  • A pair of jeans
  • A pair of black tights
  • Tank top
  • Scarf
  • Jacket

Property aside, what is the most expensive thing you have ever bought for yourself?

I bought a set of diamond jewelry from my first paycheck (from my first decent paying job).

When you are feeling down, what can you do or eat, drink … whichever to boost your mood?

When I am feeling down, no food was ever able to cheer me up and I don’t think drinking would boost my mood either since it will just get me drunk.

When are you at your happiest and what are you doing to make that happen for you?

I am happiest when I am not under any pressure. I am trying to resolve everything through prayers and action. I am proactive but I know that there are so many things that are beyond my capacity so I’d need divine support.

Do you believe ‘you are what you wear’ as in clothing defines your personality?’

No, because dressing up is like acting, you can be whatever you want to be at any given time depending on what you choose to wear so it’s not quite a reliable way to define one’s personality. It can however hint one’s mood.

What’s the best advice you can give anyone in your opinion?

Matthew 6:33

Despite your good intentions – it is a universal fact that not everyone you meet and or know will like you – are you okay with that or does it bother you to the point you want to know why?

It used to bother me but then I’ve come to terms that I am not really a super likable person anyway so it’s kind of expected to be disliked by some. I’ve accepted that.

Although when people dislike me to the extent of doing me harm, like gossiping about me, spreading nasty stuff, or just by being mean to me (like bordering hatred feels), I’d want to know what I did to deserve such treatment because perhaps I need to apologize or change, I can get oblivious at times… it all depends on the level of dislike.

  2. What a fun post, Janis. I am happy to see you back in order after recovering. The box of Spam made me laugh. Why Spam of all things? And that is quite the team you have put together, well-balanced, too! But your wardrobe is even better, high five!

    1. SPAM? Because I don’t know what they have in Medieval France, I don’t want to end up starving. Hehe… the wardrobe is pretty much all I use in reality 😀 And yes, we’ve completely recovered. My niece though forgot about me and cried like crazy when she saw me @ mom’s house 😀

  3. Thank you for including me in your Flesh Eating Zombie apocalypse survival group. It’s an awesome group and I think we would ace surviving the apocalypse 😂 SPAM will survive anywhere and for any period of time 🤣 I think you would fit into medieval France just fine. One day if you ever get the chance track down the Doctor Whoo episode: The Girl in the Fireplace – its perhaps my favourite episode and deals with France back then:

    My (our) favourite Zombie show was Z Nation – we all loved the quirkiness.


    1. I honestly have no clue about Z Nation – I see it all the time but never attempted to watch it perhaps because I haven’t finished The Walking Dead yet. My husband vowed not to continue S8 so I kind of put it on hold to see if he’d change his mind. He was turned off by the many differences bet. comics & the show.. I am still taking my time before I continue 🙂

      So I will avoid reading anything further on Z Nation because I may watch it 😀

      I’d also check that Dr. Who episode. I wonder….

      I hope to survive in both the medieval times and the dystopian world… who knows?! Anything can happen… 😀 😀 😀
