Follow Friday/ Book Blogger Hop (13)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee!

This week's question is:

It's circle time. Time for us to open up and share. Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...

Wow, I have so many quirky habits, it's gonna be hard to narrow them down....

1. I love pesto. Yes, pesto that you have in salads and pastas. But I love it in sandwiches and on crackers.

2. I have two props used in two of my favorite war dramas. One is a rubber safety Bayonet used on the set of the Pacific. The other is a rubber hand Grenade actually used on the set of Saving Private Ryan. I intend to get a prop from Band of Brothers (my favorite favorite) next. 

3. I love and enjoy teaching myself Astronomy. I have always been interested in it, but we were NEVER taught anything about space at school, which I think is disgraceful. So I taught myself.

4. I am trying to teach myself to play the Ukulele. But I just don't have the time at the moment. 

5. My favorite film(s) from since I was 8 or 9 is Lord of the Rings. I've watched them hundreds of times over the years. This includes the extended version, and the commentaries and extras. Yet there is one part of the original Return of the King that I haven't seen. It's in the middle of the film and only about 5 seconds long, but I always ALWAYS look away on that part because I have some weird fear about what happens in it. I'm not gonna say what part or what fear it is though, I'll save that for another time. My mum told me not to look on that part when I first saw it (I was like 11 okay), and since then I've still never looked.

"If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?"

I'm pretty sure I've answered something like this before. But Hogwarts obviously. I don't think I need to explain my reasoning. 


  1. I love pesto in sandwiches too! Yum

    I'm already a follower :)


    Feel free to stop by my blog -

  2. I would have pick Hogwarts too if I'm to choose more than one! Thanks for dropping by our blog. New follower. :)

  3. The LOTR movies are awesome! I'm trying to figure out what part that could possibly you have me curious :)

  4. I said Harry Potter, too.

    The fact that you were 8 or 9 when those films came out makes me feel so old, even though I'm only 25. I too am really curious as to what part you look away at.

    Anyway, great answers.

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Great to find other people that like the smell of chlorine and swimming.

    It's great your teaching yourself astronomy, wish I had more time for that sort of thing.

    Harry Potter seems to be a popular answer, I almost chose it but was won over by Eragon.

    Have a great weekend. :D

  6. Hogwarts is a must have. I'd love to visit it, and Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley. I am dying to play a game of Quidditch ;)

    Have a great weekend!

  7. I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

    Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected –

  8. Pesto. I don't think I eat much of it. Now you have me wanting to eat Pesto. What is up with that? Love your quirks :)

  9. Hopping through. I love pesto too! Great in pasta or on pizza.
