Mark’s Questions & My Answers
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
Depends on the day whether it’s getting in to work in my job of almost nine weeks as a secretary or either sitting chatting with my sister or throwing on an Agatha Christie TV adaptation on days off. Either way I usually first light up a cigarette which is not the most healthy way to start the day! 🙂
Your current favorite song?
I have lots of favourite songs from the past. I’m 28 now and I often lately can’t keep up with what’s current. I usually think something’s current enough that is five or six years old! I think the most current song I’m listening to at the moment is Burn Rubber by Aquaria because I’m watching season 10 of Rupaul’s Drag Race and she’s one of my favourites in the show alongside The Vixen. There’s an almost current song I’m listening to as well by Shea Coulee ft. Lila Star and The Vixen called Cocky from 2017.
Crush from a book or movie? Why?
I have tons of crushes! Makes life more fun! A good fantasy is very healthy! But specifically from a book or movie, I’m sure over the years there has been a few but the main one I can think of at the moment is Damon Snow from Olivia Helling’s Damon Snow series. So broodingly dark & handsome and if he was real very sexy I’d imagine! And most importantly a lovely person with a heart of gold!
Tell a secret
I have quite a few teddies especially dog teddies. They are just too cute & hard to resist!
What was the most embarrassing moment that happened to you yesterday?
Something embarrassing nearly always happens when you work in reception and have never worked in an office before but I always get through in the end usually with a smile and some sweetness!
Why do you think you’re an amazing human being?
I’m not amazing but I am a good person. I have good qualities and I think they outweigh my bad qualities by some way. I have compassion for people. I tend to often take peoples’ problems on as my own so I definitely care. I can’t stand prejudice, ignorance and bigotry in all it’s forms. Life is hard enough sometimes without all that shit! I think my heart is basically good. If I can help someone I’m there.
3 things from your bucket list
- Live in Brighton, England
- Get my BA (in literature, writing)
- Get a stamp on my passport first and foremost!
And I’m saving towards these things at the moment.
Look behind you. What did you see first?
I’m at work so the work radio that is currently playing LeAnn Rimes Can’t Fight The Moonlight. I was a kid when the movie that came from Coyote Ugly was out. The years are flying by quicker than I wish them to! 🙂
What motivational message would you tell yourself if you were a different person?
I’d tell myself:
Take each day at a time, not to take heed of the poisonous people out there and you as you is OK.
What are your thoughts about blog designing? Do you find it hard to do it? How do you know if it’s “the one” already?
The design of Culture Vulture Express hasn’t changed since it was launched 5 years ago except possibly minor little changes. I did put a bit work into it at the start and I was pleased with the result but I’m more interested in the content part of the blog so I don’t think too much about it. I feel if I changed it now it wouldn’t feel as much like Culture Vulture Express anymore.
To be honest it’s so long ago that I put up the design I’ve forgotten how to do it but WordPress made it easy at the time! 🙂
