  1. I loved reading your post! You definitely are funny! Your answers really made me laugh, especially your answer to the funniest pick up line! 😂 We have a lot in common! I love cheese too! I also really like Mass Effect, Into the Spider verse and Fight Club! I love Daenerys Targaryen too! Did you see what happened to her at the end? 😢 I also love writing in a diary! Do you use pen and paper to write your blog posts sometimes instead of a computer? That would be pretty awesome! Thanks for participating! 😁

    By the way, I love your pictures!

    1. Thank you Charli
      Cheese is life… I thought you loved chocolate hahahaha but there’s no where that says its an exclusive love affair.

      I really love the world building behind Mass Effect, a lot of work went into populating the galaxies and creating races I am sure it wold make for an interesting movie, but nope dont think they could pack that all up into a movie maybe a TV series or a book, I wouldnt be surprised if it were somehow based on a book.

      The Mother Of Dragons was something else a pity she had to go all Mad Queen in the end, but hey they say we become villains of own stories if we remain in the sun too long and then we burn…

      yes I write down some of my blog posts old school like that especially these days when we have 18 hours without electricity because of loadshedding so laptop and phone will run out of power and its back to dark ages for us…

      1. 😂😂 Chocolate is definitely my first love, but cheese is really fighting for my heart too! 😂 Mass Effect would definitely make a great tv series! I probably could have been made off of a book! You make a good point because a lot of movies, shows, and games are! Have you heard of the game The Witcher? That game was, but most fans don’t know! I feel bad for the author! His story is sad!
        Datk ages! Lol. Sometimes old school is the way to go, especially when mistakes can happen and data can get deleted accidentally or lost!


      2. I know the game you speak of yep I knew it came from books but I learnt that after I discovered it had a series coming to Netflix haha!!

      3. 😂 I hear the author gave up rights to the story to the game developers. He never expected the game to be successful! Now he isn’t making any mo way out of it! Sad!

      4. oh no, gaming communities have a way of turning even the most unheard of stories and games into a measure of success… I wouldnt know but I think gaming would make more money for authors than trying to get tv deals unless yo have a sure fire thing … I have a dream of doing a concept for a game one day

      5. I agree! Games can really help promote a lot of books! Some games ideas even get made into movies, although the movies aren’t always very good! 😂 I hope you get to accomplish that dream! 😁 That would be amazing!

        Liked by 1 person

      6. And about The mother of dragons! Lol. The writers of the show believe viewers should have seen that coming! 😂 Fans were still very mad though! You can’t do that to such a beloved character! 😂

  2. Hahaha that wedding dance video has me in stitches. That’s the first time I’ve ever seen you moving you quickly. All the times, I’m fortunate enough to bump into you, you’re ALWAYS super chilled. Felt like I was watching a spiked version of you

  3. Okra is just yuck! Sushi is yummy,just thinking about it…
    I’ll have coffee and a coke with you, because caffeine has captured my heart again. Have you read Having a Coke with you by Frank O’Hara? It’s a beautiful poem, you should.

    Beastmode? What kind of rapper name is that?


    1. agreed Okra is just messy… but someone saw my thoughts on it and they said it can be made pretty looks like I am about to be schooled…
      Caffeine rhymes with cocaine, there’s a reason for that, also there’s an urban legend that the coke in coke-cola comes from the cocaine they used to add to it back in the day, they dont do it anymore though but one never really knows, does the FDA hand test every single coke drink manfactured, I dont think so…

      Havent read that poem will look for it

      Beastmode is when I unleash The Beast when The Beat goes On. I make the tapedeck explode when I go Beastmode like Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde I transform Beaton and The Beast



  4. I took a chance on reading this post and I wasn’t disappointed. I’m not one to read through 73 things but here I am, pleasantly surprised and sh*t!
