Friday With A Tag.

Last week I was tagged by the lovely Tereza. I always except a tag challenge and anyone feeling up to it as well, be my guests.;)

The rules are:
1. Respond and rework:
Answer the questions on your blog.
Replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention.
Add a question of your own.
2. Tag eight other people. (Optional)

I have seen this tag before in a bit different format, where pictures, quotes and poems had to be listed as well. However, this one seems to be a more simple version, which fits me splendidly.

Here are my answers;)

1) What is (are) your current obsession(s)?
I am not obsessed with things that easily, but I would guess blogging.

2) What do you see outside your window?
The hedge around my terrace, a few birch trees, a farm in the background and lots of blue sky.

3) Do you nap a lot?
No, I don't. I only like to sleep at night, when in my bed. Why waste days away on sleeping? If I ever nap it is because I have not slept the night before or I am not feeling well.

4) Who was the last person you hugged?
Yesterday I hugged a friend when congratulating her on her birthday.
And Batcat, of course he is not a person though.;)

5) Which animal would you be?
I am a sheep in Chinese Astrology. By choice I would love to be a wild horse.

6) What’s for dinner?
Pasta alla Carbonara.

7) What was the last thing you bought?
Weekly groceries. How exciting.;)
If more personal item, then it was a pair of large, golden earrings.

8) What are you listening to right now?
Urban Gypsy by Marc Antoine.

9) What is your favourite weather?
Hot and humid day full of sunshine and sound of the cicadas.

10) What’s on your bedside table?
A framed photograph, a little angel, a lamp, a few books, my phone, a clock-radio and a glass of water.

11) Say something to the person/s who tagged you.
Dear Tereza, you have a lovely blog and I am so impressed by your English and your sense of style. Thank you for tagging me.;))

12) If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be?
Right here where it is now.

13) Where are you typing from right now?
My living room.

14) A book you're currently reading?
"A German Requiem", the third book in a compilation called "Berlin Noir" by Philip Kerr (read for me by the Irishman every evening).

15) What (Who) would you like to have in your arms right now?
Risking to state the absolute obvious; a tall, strong, handsome man that lives in Ireland.

16) What is your favourite tea flavour?
I don´t drink tea. Only when I have the flu; in that case I opt for chamomile.

17) If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Ireland.

18) What did you want to become as a child?
An archeologist, a vet, an artist, a farmer.

19) If you could meet anyone famous in the world, from the past or the present, who would it be?
Leonardo da Vinci.

20) What is your plan for tomorrow?
Considering it is Saturday, I do not have to go to the lab. Therefore I will be getting up late, doing household chores, perhaps some gardening and relaxing, maybe for the first time this season outside in the sun, with a good book or a magazine.

21) What color do you find yourself wearing more often than not?
Any shades of blue.

22) What is your favorite day of the week?
Friday.

I may just tag myself and do something similar. You are so interesting...I hope to meet you someday for a drink or two.
Maybe in Ireland.

Gal Friday said...

This was a delight to read and I learned some things about you(don't drink tea, aye?).
I would answer question no. 3 exactly as you did. I always think why would someone want to waste the day by sleeping, and also only nap if I'm ill.
I may have to try this one soon, myself...
Enjoy that Pasta alla Carbonara and your weekend!

I stay up too late at night because I hate to waste so much of my at home time in bed...but this necessitates daytime naps. I take a 10 or 15 minute nap during lunch on days when I'm really tired.

It is easy to get obsessed with blogging isn't it?

I am a horse...but not a very wild one!

Diane said...

Great tag, my friend... I like learning new things about you (though I knew quite a few of the things mentioned, I'm pleased to say :).

Ryan picked DaVinci, too... great minds!! ;)

Betsy said...

I love to wear blue, too!

Enjoy tomorrow...sleeping late and puttering around outside...sounds lovely!

Keera Ann Fox said...

I tagged myself! Go read! :-D

I love when other bloggers get tagged with fun questions to answer; it lets me learn so much more about them! :]

The way you intertwined red and Christmas made me smile. and it is so true, red should and can be worn year round, why not being in a little Christmas cheer year round? ;]

Glad you liked the smiles.. heehee.

Happy TGIF! xx

Tea is my favourite drink since I don't remember when. However I like to drink it cold especially after being left for a night to ferment. Blue is my favourite colour too. Blogging? Ya, I can't leave the house without it.

=Julie,
please be my guest! Looking forward reading your answers.;)) And the meeting in Ireland sounds great.;))

=Tina,
no, no tea for me.:P Coffee is my preferred beverage.;))
Yes, I do not like-or need to-nap, as it makes it impossible to sleep later in the night.
Glad you enjoyed reading this and I so look forward to read your answers.;)) Hope you are having a great weekend too my dear friend;))

=steviewren,
in a way I admire the fact that you can nap for such a short time I think it takes me some time to fall asleep and if I only had 15 minutes I would be all stressed about not having enough time.;)
Ah, I envy you being a horse. That is so much better than a sheep.;))
Hope your weekend is lovely!;)

=Diane,
thank you for your kind comments, glad you are not bored silly yet by reading all this stuff about me.;))
Ah, I think Ryan and me would get along so well.;) I hope I will get to meet that smart daughter of yours one day.;))

=Betsy,
glad you too like the colour of the sky.;)) Blue is such a serene colour I think.;)
Yes, it is Saturday as I write this and I got to sleep in and am now soaking up the warm sunshine.
Hoe your weekend is great as well.;))

=Keera,
you did so well with the tag; thank you for playing along! Hope you are having a great weekend.;))

=Erika,
I am happy you liked reading all this somewhat boring facts about me.;)
I am always so happy that you find the time to visit me.:)
Hope your weekend is great as well.;)
Keep smiling!!

=Mahmud,
I think tea, like coffee, is an acquired taste.;) I guess I just acquired the coffee taste better.;))
Yes, blogging is a bit addictive, I have to admit.;))
Hope your weekend is going well.;))

=sallymandy,
thank you so much for your kind words; I am happy you found this interesting.;) And it warms my heart to know you find my blog calming and serene.;)I like to think that that I lead a life that is not easy and free of obstacles, but nevertheless full of joy, love, natural beauty and simple pleasures. And I am hoping my blog is a reflection of that.;)
I am always so very happy when you stop by.;)) Hope the weekend is treating you well.;))

Hey, I enjoyed reading your answers :) we have a few things in common- like not drinking a tea, the archeologist thing ( I was digging into ground all the time, hehe). And I admire Leonardo da Vinci he was so interesting and versatile person.

Měj se hezky, Tereza :)
