Going off topic: Old school blogging meme

July 22, 2013

I’ve been tagged! Okay, I don’t go off topic on this blog very much — I typically stick to the kissing and charity themes — but my bloggy buddy Stevie tagged me, so I’m making a special exception.

Meme time! This is for an Old School Blogging linkup hosted by Alison and Elaine. (Remember, blame Stevie.)

Five Things I Have a Passion For:

  • Dream chasing
  • Fairy tales
  • Anime (from popular to obscure, I have to keep a spreadsheet of all the shows I’ve watched)
  • Words/literature
  • Steampunk

Five Things I Would Like to Do before I Die:
Hold on, lemme just check my bucket list….which has 100 items on it because, darn it, it’s okay to want stuff.

  • Raise $10k to fight cancer. There, I said it. I dream of getting the Kiss Chronicles Razoo page to $10k raised toward the cure.
  • Create a web comic (probably partnering with an artist)
  • Visit Australia
  • Learn to play chess
  • Paint a wall full of doodles (or an entire room, perhaps?)

Five Things I Say a Lot:

  • “Oh my gosh!”
  • “Frickity.”
  • “Stop it, cat.”
  • “Where did I put that? I had it a second ago.”
  • “Pumpernickel, away!” Oh, wait, no, I never say that.

Five Books and/or Magazines I Have Read Lately:

Wow, talk about a hodgepodge.

Five Favorite Movies:

  • The Princess Bride
  • Princess Mononoke
  • The Adventures of Baron Von Munchausen
  • The Avengers
  • The Labyrinth

My above choices are based strongly on rewatchability.

Five People I Invite to Do This Meme:

I’m a bad sport. Here’s what I say: If you’re a blogger and this interests you, do eeet! If you’re a blogger and it doesn’t interest you, don’t do eeet, and link me to some other post about yourself so I can get to know you. (But, you know, it’d be really cool if Melissa my Favorite Alien and Karen the Fairy Queen and Elaine the Derby Girl did it.)

    Blame ME! Haha. Virginia, how did you get to be so cool?! I love the Labyrinth. I kind of have a crush on David Bowie in that movie.

    I doodle all the time – the other day in a staff meeting one of the guys I work with asked if over the past 14 years I have saved my doodles as they could cover a room!
