Blogger Tag: 73 Questions – A Vogue Parody
Where Did This Come From?
Vogue magasine has started this feature where they interview celebrities, influencers and so on. They ask them 73 questions in total, the only one I have seen is on Youtube and it was with the absolutely stunning, Blake Lively. I saw a few bloggers had done this, so I thought why not give it a bash, let my lovely followers get to know more about me and learn more about some of my favourite bloggers in the process.
1. What is your usual Starbucks order?
I will never, ever set foot in Starbucks after the militarygate scandal. My favourite Costa Coffee (love you, Costa!) hot drink would be a Coconut Milk Latte. My favourite cold drink is their Mango Fruit Coolers. An Iced Coconut Milk Latte is to die for.
2. What Does Your Work Station Currently Look Like?
It’s my sofa, my macbook is balancing on a laptop tray, I’ve my phone to the right with a big bottle of water, airpods and mail I still haven’t opened. My dog is snoring beside me as I sweat my tits off in this heat.
3. What is Your Favourite Food?
4. Who is Your Favourite Author?
Patricia Cornwell, James Connelly, James Patterson, Lee Childs, Karin Slaughter and Melanie Murphy. You can’t ask a book nerd that question and expect one answer, that’s insane.
5. What Do You Think of Open Relationships?
Not for me, but you do you, lad.
6. What is Your Favourite Video Game?
Jesus… RPG I’ll say The Sims (all), sports would be Fifa and then Call of Duty (COD). I do love a lot of GTA and Tomb Raider, too, though. I’m a gamer, it’s hard for me to choose just one.
7. What is Your Guilty Pleasure Treat?
Pizza or ice cream. Both make me super ill with my IBS after, but I still do it to myself every time. The best pizza you will ever have comes from Four Star Pizza in Northern Ireland, it’s thin or normal bread, chilli base, chicken, mushrooms, red onions, extra cheese and if I’m feeling fancy a bit of Oregano. Bellissimo!
8. What is Your Favourite Movie?
Depends on the genre, I’ve one for kids, several horror movie favourites, several family, several comedies. Since horror is always my first go to movies I’d probably say Texas Chainsaw Massacre. My most recent favourite horror film is The Curse of La Llorona, it was SO GOOD.
9. Do You Prefer Twitter or Instagram?
Twitter! The eejits on there make my life, but if I need a good laugh I just go on Reddit.
10. Desktop or Laptop?
Depends, if I’m gaming or editing photos from my photography then desktop. If it’s writing of any kind or just watching Youtube/Netflix then the laptop, more specifically my soon to be very dead Macbook. Fuck knows what I’ll do when it dies as my PC is super old, too.
11. What is the Best Advice You Ever Received?
“Never depend on anyone for anything, because you’ll always be let down.”
“Always listen to your gut.”
12. What Project Are You Working on Right Now?
I’m writing a fiction novel which I’m hoping to get published this year. I am also working on a book about my child abuse. It’s sort of like a survival story, and I’m doing it more for me, so that if/when I do die my family understands why.
13. Favourite Colour?
Grey, or black.
14. Did You Get Good Grades in School?
Always got A’s, B’s and C’s. I was and still am a total fucking nerd.

18. What is Your Nationality?
I am mixed ethnicity, but for the purpose of NI, I refer to myself as Northern Irish.
19. What is Your Favourite Kind of Blog Post To Do?
My favourite to write is anything that teaches people something. I love to educate, I don’t know why as I would hate to be a teacher! I suppose I love it so much because I think that if I teach more people about certain things, there will be less oppression and more understanding of the different topics I cover. However, this massively impacts my blog ROI (return of investment) as it makes me less brand-friendly.
20. What Do You Like to Collect?
Souls, mostly. Oh, books and stationery! The number of books and stationery I have is ridiculous.
21. Describe Yourself in Three Words.
Fierce, loyal, compassionate

My alliance on Guns with Glory to remind them about the Underworld Battle tomorrow night at 8 pm.

Lil’ Razor Blades
24. What is on the top of your Wish List Right Now?
To find £1500 to move home, I’m even at the point now I am considering setting up a Go Fund Me as it’s massively impacting my mental health, I mean the suicidal thoughts are back impacting.
25. What House would the Sorting Hat put you in?
Gryffindor! “Yer a wizard, Harry!”
26. How Many Tattoos Do You Have?
Not a single one, my good friend Willy is a tattoo artist and often mentions tattooing me so if I ever did get a tattoo, he’d be doing it. I always wanted to get a full sleeve tattoo with lots of Native American references, wolves, Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) skulls and girls with skull makeup. Go hard or go home, lads.
27. What Are You Grateful for This Year?
My dog, I’d be dead if he wasn’t by my side, not being dramatic. I’d literally be dead.

Halloween? Is that what you’re referring to here? I’m assuming it is, Halloween hands down.
33. What Character Do You Relate To the Most?
Hmm… I honestly don’t know. I can’t think of a character I would relate to, I can think of people I relate to. I suppose Monica from Friends for her OCD cleaning as that’s definitely what I am like and I’m a control freak, too.
34. Do You Like Surprises?
I hate them! I am too much of a control freak to enjoy them. That’s another reason I don’t do well with Christmas, I’m scared if I get a present I may not like that I won’t be able to be poker-faced about it because I’ll be opening it in front of people. That’s why me da just gives me money.
35. What Is The Biggest Surprise You Ever Had?
Finding out I was pregnant as my partner was told we would struggle to conceive due to a medical condition he has. However, I found out when I miscarried so it wasn’t a happy surprise, unfortunately.

My miscarriage last year the day after I lost my granda, I don’t cry at happy surprises.
37. What is the Best Surprise You Have Given to Someone Else?
When I bought my other half an Xbox for his birthday a few years ago. He was so happy he got teary-eyed as he really had no idea and really wanted one.
38. Do You Like Muffins?
Yes, especially Blueberry or Chocolate with Chocolate Chip Muffins.
39. Do You Cook Often?
I love cooking, but I literally cannot be fucked when it’s just me. I don’t cook often, I literally live off sparkling water, chocolate and rice with veg.

Tiramisu with Italian chocolate chip ice cream.

How to Be a Gobshite and Not Get Murdered 101
48. What is the Best Animated Film You Have Ever Seen?
This is such a tough question, the animation is so much different now than it was when I was a kid. My favourite films as a kid were Land Before Time (insert sobbing here), All Dogs Go To Heaven (insert more sobbing here), and Land Before Time (insert sobbing here for Land Before Time II when Artax the horse dies in the Swamp of Sadness. I’m not even kidding, I was HYSTERICAL.

Still waiting on that. Shania Twain’s, “That Don’t Impress Me, Much.” Is now stuck in my head, ffs.

Go somewhere you can talk, and to be honest, you’re asking the wrong person as I’ve been with the same person for 16 years so…
51. What is the Worst Thing to do on a date?
Go to the cinema, if you don’t know them how can you decide whether or not you want to see them, again?
52. Best Pick Up Line?
“Hey sexy, fancy a fuck?” Works for me shrug

63. What Are You Doing Tomorrow?
The same thing we do every day Pinky. Try to take over the world.

Jeez… probably the last Will Ferrell movie I saw. Or, probably Slenderman because it was absolute dog shit.

I’m not a crier, so the last one I can think of that made me cry was PS I Love You.

I’d rap with Dr Dre all day every day. Or, NWA if I could.
68. If Your Life was a Song, What Would it Be Called?
I already have that, it’s Titanium by David Guetta. This was the song that was playing when I flipped my car for a squirrel. I did a blog post on it, you can find it here.
69. What is Your Favourite Animal?
Dogs/Wolves are my first loves, dolphins/sloths VERY close second, and goats. That’s my top three. I cry when people send me photos of sloths, I’m like Kirsten Bell when she got a sloth visit for her birthday and her husband Dax Shepard filmed it.
70. Who is One Person You Would Want to Have Coffee With?
My granda, but he didn’t drink coffee, he was a tea drinker. I miss him every single day. If I have to pick a celebrity then probably Melanie Murphy or Anna Saccone – Joly as I think we’d have a lot in common. I sorta want to have a coffee with E L James, too. Purely, just because I want to ask her did she realise what a red room was before she put it in 50 Shades? Cos, if she did, that’s sick as fuck dude, even for me.
71. Who is Your Favourite Illustrator?
I was gonna say, Rolf Harris, lol NOPE NICOLE. Um, I’m more of a follower of painters, than illustrators. My favourite artist is Bob Ross, he’s a bro.

I’d want to go to Italy and see where my family came from.
73. What is the Best Way to Decompress?
I go to my happy place, Helensbay, or another beach if it’s closer to where I am. There is something about being by the waves, the sea air and silence that calms me. My dream is to own my own home by the Irish Sea, somewhere on the Northern Ireland Coastline.
I’m sure some of my fellow bloggers hate to see these tags coming, but I’m doing it anyway because it’s fun! I have to nominate 12 people, so here goes:
