Friday’s Game of Questions. Tag. I’m It.

Tiffany A White tagged me in this fun game of Eleven Random Questions.                        Here are the Rules                                                                                                                  1.Answer the questions set by the tagger.  In my case, this would be Tiffany.
2.Create eleven new questions to ask eleven new participants (I’m asking 12 people just because I feel like it :)).
3.Share links to those eleven (12 for me) people in your blog and let them know you’ve tagged them

Do you prefer coffee or tea in the mornings?                                                          Barry’s tea, a delicious Irish brand every morning and throughout the day.  I’m not a coffee drinker. Closest I ever come to the stuff is the odd Bailey’s coffee for dessert if I’m going out for dinner.

What book have you read over and over again?                                                           L.J. Smith’s The Forbidden Game trilogy.  It’s a mix of fantasy, paranormal and romance and it’s both scary and fun, my favourite combination.

What’s your favourite outdoor activity?                                                                      Does people-watching while sitting on a patio outside a pub count?

I’m second to the left

Do you cook and/or bake straight from the recipe, or do you get creative and throw things together in the kitchen?                                                                                  I just throw random ingredients into the pot and if in doubt add a lot of spices.

Where is your favourite place to visit in the United States?                                      I haven’t visited New Orleans but it’s the one city in the entire US I am dying to get to, hopefully within the next 12 months. I’m going to Las Vegas next year for a friend’s 30th so I’m going to do my best to fly to Anne Rice land while I’m over.

Which animals must you see when visiting a zoo?                                                     The monkeys.  They make me laugh.

What’s your favourite television show airing today?                                                The Vampire Diaries. Vampires, witches, magic and mayhem, and pretty men. Enough said.

What’s your favourite television show of all time?                                                       Buffy.  In case it’s not already clear, I love anything to do with vampires.

What’s your favourite movie of all time?                                                                     Can’t pick just one. The Goonies, Stand by Me, Reality Bites, Dirty Dancing, Hocus Pocus and The Last of the Mohicans would be high up on the list.

What do you like to snack on when at the movie theater?                                       Hot nuts. See picture just to be clear 🙂

Who is your current Hollywood or otherwise famous crush?                                  Daniel Gillies who plays Elijah in The Vampire Diaries and Mark Foster from the band Foster the People of “Pumped Up Kicks” fame.

The lovely Daniel Gillies

                                                                                                  Now for my victims (I’ve picked 12, not 11).  Some of you have probably been tagged already so feel free to ignore.

Becky from Blogs-Of-A-Bookaholic                                                                                          Grace Mernagh                                                                                                                                   Kim from Kim the Fan Girl                                                                                                               Laura Cotter                                                                                                                            Michelle Cornwell-Jordan                                                                                                            Lori Oster                                                                                                                                    Lauralynn Elliott                                                                                                                            Cambria Hebert                                                                                                                           Shannon Yvonne Moreau                                                                                                           Silvia Paoletta                                                                                                                                Melissa Craig                                                                                                                               Dalya Moon

      How can you hate concerts though?

      • Dalya Moon says:

        I should say … I enjoy the first half hour or so of a concert, and then, if it’s crowded and loud, I feel overwhelmed and want to go home. 🙂 It’s not that I’m a curmudgeon (not yet!), but I may be oversensitive and stressed by the noise and crowds.

      • Emma says:

        Yeah the crowds can suck sometimes but I just love the excitement of seeing a band or singer you love live. Going to see Bruce Springsteen this summer and cannot wait!

  8. beckyday6 says:

    Ok so here we go:
    Where is your Favourite Place in the Entire World? There are some rocks near where I live, and one in perticular is really high and I love to climb up it because it has this perfect seat shaped dent on top of it. It has a fantastic view and I love reading up there, with all the birds singing etc 🙂

    Who is Your Favourite Author? Coh! That’s practically impossible so I’ll just name a couple that are up there: Trudi Canavan, J.K. Rowling, Cate Tiernan, Suzanne Collins, Emily Bronte, J.R.R Tokien, Kelley Armstrong. Ok, maybe that was a few too many….it’s an impossible question though! 😛

    🙂

    • Emma says:

      I had heard that song years ago, great to listen to it again so thanks.
      I love your favourite place. I don’t really have a sanctuary like that and I’d love to have one and go there with my ipod and just chill out or get inspired.
      Cheers to Buffy! Best show ever.
      What do you think of Clay from Kelley Armstrong’s books Bitten and Stolen? He’s my favourite werewolf 🙂
      Thanks for playing Becky.

      • beckyday6 says:

        So far I’ve only read Bitten from her Otherworld series, but I do have the next five-ish books on my shelf to read 😛 I I loved Clay in Bitten, verrrry hot. I also loved Derek from Darkest Powers too. Nom! 🙂 I’m not usually a fan of werewolf tales by Kelley makes them kick ass!

  9. All Grown Up:)
    Hey, Emma, thought I would suggest a favorite Adult genre author I do really enjoy. It’s Paranormal Romance…She writes about the Carpathians(similar to Vampires:)…Dark Series… Anyway, have you heard of Christine Feehan? If not, try her she is awesome!
    website:http://www.christinefeehan.com/dark_series/index.php
    and favorite grown up show…(I love the Vampire Diares, yes…) but the adult version is True Blood…http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0844441/

    If you heard of this, then great:) and so, I just wanted to put in my all grown of likes as well!

    • Emma says:

      Hi Michelle.
      Thanks for the author recommendation. I hadn’t heard her but looked up the books now and they seem right up my alley so cheers.
      As for True Blood, I got hooked on this show four years ago. I didn’t think the last series was great but I’m looking forward to seeing what Sookie and friends are up to in season 5 which should be really soon.
      Thanks for these Grown Up ideas 🙂

  10. Silvia says:

    Ok Emma, you won, I got the message, “read The Forbidden Game trilogy”! Now, I can’t guarantee I’m going to do it soon but I will, promise! 🙂

    It’s not because I’m lazy but very busy that I’m going to answer your questions here:

    1. Where is your Favourite Place in the Entire World?
    Movie Theatre (I have a degree in cinema, that should sum it up ;))

    2. What Country Do You Most Want to Visit?
    Can I be specific and go with a city? I’ve been wanting to visit Dublin since forever!!!!

    Laurell K. Hamilton

    4. What Song Describes Your Mood Today?
    I’m trying to figure it out…

    5. Do You Judge A Book By Its Cover?
    I shouldn’t, should I? … Seriously, I think it’s inevitable having an opinion at first sight (the eye always wants its part), but I personally always check the blurb the most because you have no idea how many good books are out there even with a cover you don’t like!

    6. What is the Last Movie You Saw?
    The Hunger Games (last month on my birthday)

    7. What Is Your Favourite Food?
    Lasagna!

    8. What is Your Favourite TV Show Of All Time?
    Buffy The Vampire Slayer

    9. What is the First Record You Bought?
    Oh boy, I don’t remember… That’s because I bought it many, LOL

    10. What is the Best Concert You Have Ever Attended?
    Don’t laugh and yes, it’s true, Bruce Springsteen!!

    11. Do You Prefer Blondes or Brunettes?
    I’m a Brunette so… 😉

    Did I pass the test? 😛

  11. Emma says:

    Aw Silvia, you’re very good for playing. Now I feel under pressure for you to like those books 🙂
    What a cool degree. When you decide to go to Dublin let me know, it’s only a 3 hour train journey away from me. Woo hoo, Buffy is doing very well in this game. Can’t believe about Bruce!! I’m so jealous. And I too judge a book by its cover 🙂
    Thanks for answering Silvia. This is a great way to get to know other bloggers.

  13. Lori Oster says:

    I’m late to the party, can I still play?!

    Where is your Favourite Place in the Entire World? Dingle, Ireland. I went there in 2010 and immediately felt like I was home. And they have Guinness ice cream–hello?!

    What Country Do You Most Want to Visit? Ooh, this is tough because I want to go EVERYWHERE! I’m planning a trip to Spain for the end of this month, so I’ll say that. Espana, baby!

    Who is Your Favourite Author? Duh! Emma Meade. I also fancy Shel Silverstein quite a bit.

    What Song Describes Your Mood Today? Homeward Bound, Simon & Garfunkel. I’ve been in the office way too long.

    Do You Judge A Book By Its Cover? Hell yes I do! And don’t you forget it, authors! I’ll read a book with a bad cover, but I’m not as likely to buy it and put it on my bookshelves. Take heart!

    What is the Best Concert You Have Ever Attended? Simon & Garfunkel’s Old Friends tour was amazing because their music feels like the soundtrack of my life. Hearing it live was like being reborn.

    Do You Prefer Blondes or Brunettes? Brunettes. Very dark brunettes.

    Thanks for letting me play!!!! Sorry it took me so long, the end of the semester has me buried in final essays and evaluations!

    • Emma says:

      Hi Lori. Guinness ice-cream? Seriously, now I have to go back to Dingle 🙂
      I think lots of us, rightly or wrongly judge a book by its cover.
      I too bought the soundtrack to Wayne’s World many years ago so you’ll hear no judgement from me!
      Good luck with your studies and exams and cheers for playing.
