Reader Request August 31st and A Couple Awards

Hey everyone!

Jim Carrey Ace Ventura GIF - JimCarrey AceVentura Driving GIFs

A few days back I did a post announcing that I was doing a Reader Request. Well, today is the day that I answer the questions you all gave me.

How many siblings do you have??

Thirteen! 7 full siblings, 5 half-siblings and a friend whom is like a sister.

Which sibling are you in numbers??

I’m third out of my full siblings. If I count my full siblings, half-siblings and my friend, I am ninth.

Do you like ketchup or mayo????

Um…what’s mayo? And what’s ketchup? Is one of them the American equivalent of tomato sauce or something?

What is your future dream?

I’ve got some ideas.

Fav candy?

Since it’s candy and not chocolate, I’d have to say a lollipop or something?

What are you wearing right now?

I had gotten one of my brothers to take a couple photos of me in an outfit I was in earlier when I started typing up this post, but due to some stuff that came up, I wasn’t able to actually upload the photos until now and right now I’ve changed out of that outfit and into my pyjamas, so I can’t show the photos. As of right now, I am wearing a blue pyjama t-shirt with a picture of minnie mouse on it that says what’s not to love? and am wearing some brownish pyjama trousers that have some white intricate flowery patterns on them.

Are you extremely active?

I don’t know about extremely active, but I am an active person.

Is music a huge part of your life?


Monarchist or Republican?

Hmm, good question. There are pros and cons to each side. There are stuff about a Monarchy that appeal to me but there are stuff about a republic that appeal to me as well. But having grown up in a country that has a Monarchy, I’m somewhat more inclined to a Monarchy, particularly because while my country, which is a Monarchy, certainly has had it’s bits of instability with some stuff government wise, it’s ultimately more stable than say America’s politics, which is not a Monarchy.

So, basically, I think I’m more a Monarchist, but I am open to the idea of a Republic, though that depends on how it’s handled and stuff like that…if my answer makes any sense whatsoever.

What’s the best joke you’ve ever heard?

Not sure, I’ve heard a few really good ones recently and am not sure which one is the best.

What was your favourite age growing up?

Um, my teen years.

Was the last book you read?

My school books.

Camping or Glamping?

So, I had to look up what the hell “glamping” meant, lol!

And I prefer just camping.

Do you have any pet peeves?

Yes – the one that is safest to show on here is when a movie character doesn’t get his or hers so richly deserved butt kicking.

What’s one thing that can make your day instantly better?

There are a few things, but they don’t always make my day INSTANTLY better depending on how bad the day is, but they usually work, or at least help me start getting better.

Which meal is your favourite: breakfast, lunch, or dinner?

All three.


Cause all three meals involve FOOD!!!

Were you close with your family growing up?

Somewhat, yeah.

Do you ever wish you were raised differently?

Some aspects of how I was raised, yes, I damn well wish were different.

Who in your family would you describe as a “character”?

Edward, my three year old brother. A definite character.

So I saw this Liebster award that was left an open nomination and the questions were interesting (and some were outright hilarious for me), so I decided to do it!

  2. Thanks for the nomination Rachel! Why did you nominate me? Was it:
    1. Out of desperation because you couldn’t figure out who to nominate?
    2. Because you like my writing?
    3. You wanted me to follow you?
    4. Some other reason?

    1. You’re welcome!
      LOOOOLLLL!!! Don’t remember what post it was, but I was reading someone else’s post and you and the person who posted whatever post it was got into a debate on something the poster had said in the post and I loved your comments, so wanted to nominate you *shrugs* At least, I think it was you, anyway.

  3. I want to know who that friend is that’s also like a sibling.
    Please tell me you actually know what mayo and ketchup is!
    I’m dying to hear that mysterious future dream.
    Hoovers are super cool!
    Girl, each your veggies!

    Good job on all of the awards and answers!

    1. Jay? Remember?
      Uh, no, I don’t. Over in Australia we have tomato sauce, barbecue sauce and stuff, but I don’t remember ketchup and mayo.
      Noooo, you’re not hearing it!
      I’m sure they are.
      *rolls eyes* I do…grudgingly.

      1. Oh my word. I can’t believe you assumed that! I would never say something so mean.
        I was trying to say that she’s old enough to be your mom, but you pick her as a legit, real sibling!? She could even be your grandmother.🤔🤣 I think Jay is great, nice, and awesome, so don’t say I said something that I didn’t say.

      2. Well, why didn’t you say that then instead of leaving me guessing? LOL! But, I have some half-siblings who are YEARS older than me and are old enough to be my grandparents or parents, so there’s nothing odd about me picking Jay for a sibling, 🤣 I think Jay’s awesome too.

  4. Both of you girls get off to your rooms! Miss Lydia!!!! I am absolutely no where near being too old. Stop aging me. Despite nearly being the decrepit age of 50 (2 more years) I swear that I am still in my 20’s. I am smarter. I have aged well. A bit more of an adult than I was before. But also sillier. Happier and I have a wonderful family that I am creating with my blogging world and I love it. Connecting with people like yourselves and interacting like silly geese……it is a saying.
    Lydia you do need to stop taking things so literal.
    Also I am weird as hell. Like weird weird. Totally. There is no offense what so ever being called weird. Now nice. Call me nice and I will take exception to that. (LOL on laptop can’t insert emoji as I do not know how)
    My silly girls. Miss chatting with you.
    Mwah and hugs.

    1. To paste an emoji on a windows laptop, simply push Win+period (the windows button is generally on the left hand side of the keyboard and (I am not sure how techy you are, but) it looks like a window pane with a plus sign in the middle sometimes surrounded by a circle.


  5. I seriously read that with horror all over my face and my hand over my mouth!!😲
    Dang!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so speechless!!!
    First of all, I never said you were old. Secondly, let’s hope this gets clearedup in the next few hours, or I’ll have to wait 4 years to find out what happened.

  6. Ay congrats on the awards!! (and also that opening gif you used was perfect haha) I’m the oldest of five kids so yeah, I’m pretty far from being an only child, too! 😉 and there’s no way I could make just one music playlist. It changes every single day! I can’t keep up with my own playlists lol

    1. Thank you! (Lol, thank you!) Haha, awesome! Don’t remember if I mentioned how many siblings I have in this post, but I am the third child out of 8…with just my full siblings 😉 Oh, agreed, my music tastes are always changing as I am always finding new songs I like.
