Today’s post is going to feature: 1) a very special bookworm 2) the many differences between soup and cereal.
And other things too obviously, but these are the HIGHLIGHTS.
So, about that special bookworm we were talking about? YES. I SHALL COME TO THAT. Patience, my olives, PATIENCE! We first need to talk about how I have successfully regained my title as the Queen of Fantasy by unapologetically gobbling up all the fantasy books in sight. OH AND ALSO MY NEW-FOUND OBSESSION WITH GANSEY IS WORTH MENTIONING (but I think I have already screamed about the raven boys here, SO THAT SHALL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL I HAVE ENOUGH SENSE TO WRITE A REVIEW) and O K A Y, I think it’s pretty obvious that my attempts at creating suspense are on the verge of miserable failure and since I have ALSO ran out of things to say (I MEAN WE COULD ALWAYS SCREAM ABOUT THE RAVEN BOYS SOME MORE but you probably do not want that) we shall begin.
Today you are witnessing the unfolding of a magnificent event in history, one that shall be remembered for many years after and shall be talked about for centuries to come. *cue excited gasps from the audience* Today is the first time that Dipped In Ink features a collaboration post, and that too with none other than – RACHEL FROM A BOOKWORM’S PARADISE (aka aforementioned bookworm, if that wasn’t already obvious)! We are going to do the Know your Buddy Tag together because we are cool little olives like that! (AND YES, I AM VERY MUCH EXCITED (i love rachel’s blog) AND HAVE ALREADY SCREAMED MY THROAT HOARSE, but we do not talk about that)
What you see below are all of Rachel’s answers to my questions, while my answers can be found in a post on her blog here. ALL THE FORMALITIES OUT OF THE WAY, WE PROCEED. BUT WITH CAUTION. (because rachel has a tendency of being evil sometimes, I’M JUST WARNING)
What is your favorite blog post of mine and why?
Wait are we starting with the most difficult questions? I do usually believe in getting over with the hard stuff first, but can you promise me that the rest of the questions are going to be easy? Can you? No really, it’s so hard to choose a favourite post because literally all your posts are amazing! But since I’ve to choose one, I’d go with your December tbr post because the urgency to read everything before the year ends was so relatable, and ALL. THE. GRAPHICS.
What would you like to be known for – your name or your Blog name?
I wouldn’t mind either of them because the “being known” part sounds like an attractive notion enough haha. On second thought, if I am getting a choice, why don’t I use it and go for my name instead of my blog’s name because the former is not something that is going to change very soon, or like ever.
If you had to swap niches, which niche would you change to?
It’s pretty close to what I already blog about (books), but I think if I had to change, I could blog about writing? Like maybe post some of my own pieces of poetry and talk about my novel, or about writers in general.
What is the weirdest comment you have ever gotten about your blog?
I do get the occasional spam comments, but nothing “weird” as such. That’s my trademark after all.
Do you think cereal is soup? why or why not?
(I have a sneaking suspicion that the ulterior motive of this question was for me to have an existential crisis but I refuse to do so. Ha. Joke’s on you.)
No cereal is not soup because soup is soup. And cereal is not.
Clearly I have strong (and baseless) opinions regarding this so let’s move on before the situation escalates and we have to call a fire brigade. Or an ambulance. (what can I say, my knuckles can hurt)
If you had a controller that has the power to rewind or fast forward, which one would you press on WordPress?
While I desperately would like to press rewind and lecture past-Rachel on how things should be done, I’m also excited to see where this blog would be a few years from now. So this is tough. (what is not, Rachel? What is not?) You know what, let’s go with fast forward on a whim.
Your blog is chosen to sponsor a charity. If funds were not an issue, which charity or issue would your blog choose to support?
I’m a huge environmentalist so maybe something to do with that. More specifically, it could be something dedicated to animals or protecting forests or something.
If you two were to be buddy characters in a movie, which characters would you be and why?
Mike and Sullivan from Monsters University maybe? (oops were the characters supposed to be human? welp)
Which is the most boring part of posting blog posts for you, or what part of posting a blog are you laziest about doing?
Adding links, pictures and all that (otherwise known as the icing on the cake). I usually leave them for the end, after I’ve written the entire post, but sometimes I feel too lazy and keep putting it off for days.
What are the unwritten rules of your blog?
No negativity (because we have enough of that in the real world), something new and original in every post (you’d be bored otherwise, right?), and obviously not forgetting our dear parentheses (aw there you are).
If you could transform into any animal, what would it be and why?
Make no mistake, I love animals. I run faster than a scared cheetah when a stray dog happens to bark at me, but that’s another matter entirely and we are going to ignore that.
Where was I anyway? Yes, I love animals, but I’d much rather stay human. I have no fondness of being sacrificed for the good of the ecosystem, thank you.
If your blog had a superpower/magical element, what would it be?
How wonderful would it be if my blog could somehow channel my exact thoughts and feelings while reading a book from my brain to the screen? It’d make reviewing so much more efficient.
What reminds you of me?
Well your blog obviously. Other than that, writing, because you’re the first person I ever shared my wip with.
If you were given the power to exchange blogs for a day, which thing will you change or adapt first?
Oh no absolutely nothing. I am extremely jealous of how everything about your website from the design to the content, is so amazing.
What new username would you give to my blog?
I like Anoushka and I’ve currently run out of better names so that’s the way it’s gonna stay.
Do YOU think cereal is soup? Why or why not (I think you’d better have the good sense of saying no if you care even the littlest bit about your life, but HEY the decision is yours) An animal you might like to someday transform into? A SUPERPOWER YOU WISH YOUR BLOG POSESSED?? One of the weirdest comments you’ve ever read?
