Alex @ Lord of the Trekkies
What is your favorite part of blogging?
I’m not sure. I like connecting with people. I like talking about books. I like having a hobby. I’m not sure I have a favorite part.
Do you like to read? Why?
Yes I like to read.
I have a book blog…It’d be weird if I didn’t.
And I just do.
What is your favorite song?
I can’t pick favorites of ANYTHING. I have lists of favorites – not all times.
I’m currently listening to:
What is your OTP?
Again – I CAN”T pick favorites.
I have an OTP per book/fandom, not in general.
What is your NOTP?
Though the Harry/Hermoine pairing particularly annoys me.
What/Who is your spirit animal?
Well, my patronus is a dolphin.
And I’m a Moose.
Take that as you will.
If you could have one famous author (living or other-wise) to write your biography, who would you choose and why?
*Paniked screaming because I can’t make decisions*
JK Rowling – just so my name would always be used in conjunction with Harry Potter.
Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune?
Jeopardy! I love that show!
And I’ve never seen Wheel of Fortune…
Who is your favorite villain of all time?
Again. Not great with favorites. You need to give me a context. In superhero films? In books? What?
BBC Moriarty is great though.
Do you like Disney?
What is your opinion on Loki? (From The Avengers, Thor, etc.)
MY PRECIOUS CHILD!
Seriously though, his comic redemption arc in Young Avengers/Agent of Asgard is one of my favorites!
Raquel @ Rakiodd Books
Which do you spend more time watching, TV or YouTube videos?
TV probably. But I do watch a lot of Youtube…
What’s something your parents lied to you about when you were a child?
SO MANY THINGS.
Though the best all came from my dad. He told me things like “You’re mother is your stepmother” – I think because Cinderella made me cry. He also told me I was adopted from an alien family (and that I was found in a trash can).
If you could be in any band, what band would it be and what instrument would you play?
Listen. I have absolutely no sense of rhythm/music. And lack the ability to read sheet music on a fundamental level.
I took Guitar as my elective in Sixth grade and it was the worst thing ever. Mind you, being left handed and forced to learn right handed as the school had no left handed guitars probably contributed to that, but still.
I have always wanted to learn the drums though. Though I wouldn’t want to join any of my favorite bands because I’d just mess them up (but can I still meet Brenden Urie?).
What mythical creature would you want as a pet?
A hippogriff. Or alicorn because my sister and little cousin would die.
I’d say a dragon – but it’d probably eat me…
Do you have any weird body skills, what are they?
Okay, get ready.
*Stretches and cracks knuckles*
I am double-jointed, which means I’m the Queen of weird body skills.
I can shift my knee-cap out of place, and bow my leg in the opposite direction than its meant to go, and manually move my kneecap. More so in my left leg, since thats the knee I sprained, popped out of place, popped back in myself, and walked on for a week before going to the doctor about two years ago. If freaks people out.
My shoulder is also weird. I can twist my arm so my elbow is in the front – my dad says it makes my arm look like a chicken wing, and my shoulder is visibly out of the socket (at least partially). I once fell off a stool in class, and my (Biomedical/Anatomy) teacher thought I broke my arm because it was twisted all the way around from how I fell. I stood up, twisted my arm back, and kept doing my work and I think I scared her.
What’s your favorite 90s song? Or early 2000s if you’re too young.
I’m probably technically too young – I was born late 1999, and have a soft spot for more early 2000’s than 90’s music.
But reading this question, a song popped into my head. Not my favorite if I think bout it, but the one that popped into my head:
What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen?
I can’t think of one of the top of my head. Though, I find really terrible movies hilarious.
I will say I hated Plague Town – one of the few movies to ever give me nightmares, and it was terrible. Every character was stupid beyond even horror movie standards and it wasn’t even a good horror movie. Not sure why it freaked me out so much.
Do you have a giggle trigger? Something that always makes you giggle or laugh, a certain word, joke, funny face, etc.
I mean, a lot of things make me laugh. But I’m not aware of a specific “giggle trigger”.
If you ruled a country, what would your country be known for?
100% literacy, great Special Eduction programs, and a functional Healthcare system.
I can dream right?
If you had a time machine, but it could only go from the past and back OR to the future and back to the present, which would you prefer?
Future – it would be cool to see things! But like, REALLY FAR into the future.
Which are you less likely to “survive”, no coffee or no internet?
I have to say no internet, because my GPA would no survive sans google.
Though seriously, I’m non-functional if you try and talk to me without caffeine.
