  1. I can’t believe you actually got to visit Lake Malawi! If I remember rightly it’s one of the biggest and deepest freshwater lakes in the world: it might as well be classified as a sea! But then again Africa is an incredible continent that’s absolutely full of wonders.

    1. it was fun ☺☺
      Thanks a span
      I noticed that in your Get to know me tag , that you are from Malawi, maybe we passed each other in the street once upon a time hahahaha. I been to Lilongwe, Blantyre, Lizulu, The Lake obviously, and Mzuzu at the University. …
      Hello From Zim and a pleasure to meet you too.


  3. Very interesting! I enjoyed getting to know you better. It is funny to see the “Matrix” and “Sound of Music” together on any list! I like both, by the way and I love all of the authors you mentioned although sometimes I find Stephen King a bit wordy. This was a fun post. I may try it myself. Hope you are feeling better soon!

    1. The Sound of Music practically baby sat me, that and Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, obviously I grew up in awe of Julia Andrews ♥♥♥ And from time to time I catch myself singing, “….and these are A few of my favorite things…, ” fun fact in one of my last blog posts Of The Surfer one of the sentences is a tribute to The Sound Of Music

      And The Matrix!! OMG… Another fun fact just last night watched a movie called Keanu only because Keanu Reeves from The Matrix was The ONE hey and that’s an anagram for NEO *dum dum dummmm!!!*(but Keanu Reeves was not in this movie, kitten please! In this movie Keanu is a cat and there is a scene where they spoof Keanu Reeves and The Matrix I rolled on the floor laughing like literally )

      I agree the two movies on one list is a quite a contrast but hey I have quite the eclectic taste lol and so do you hahaha so it’s not weird at all

      Oh my word!!! I Absolutely agree Stephen King is a bit wordy and a lil bit overrated; kinda but not exactly, quite unlike, the Emperor’s New Clothes haha goodluck figuring that out…

      This was a fun post do give it a whirl ^_^

      Thanks ~B

      1. The world is filled with so many things so eclectic is the best way to be! Loved Chitty-Chitty! That’s a song that gets stuck in my head!! We say the theater production last year and it was quite good. I missed Dick VanDyke but otherwise….
        Keanu is one of those actors that people either love or hate. I like him and I think he seems like he would be a fun person to get to know in person. Your cat movie sounds hilarious!!!

  4. It was great getting to know you. I’m glad you are feeling better. I also grew up watching the Sound of Music so much that it built and fortified a special place in my heart.
