Reactionary Tales

Anything But Books Tag

I was tagged in this tag by Patty at MoohnshinesCorner. She has an awesome blog full of book reviews and her life’s experiences. I’ve gotten to know her very well through our love of Darynda Jones. She’s a pretty awesome individual and you should definitely check out and follow her blog.

One: Name a cartoon that you love 

I would have to take it back in time to the Magic School Bus if we’re talking American cartoons but Cowboy Bebop if we’re talking Japanese cartoons. I always loved Magic School Bus. Ms. Frizzle was the best TV science teacher I’ve ever had! Cowboy Bebop is a jazzy, fun-featuring-a corgi anime! Also, Howl’s Moving Castle is a FANTASTIC anime movie. Watch it. You won’t regret it.

Two: What is your favorite song right now? 

What’s trending on my radar is Sia’s newest release. Has a great message and it’s Sia. I love her.

Three: What could you do for hours that isn’t reading?

Sleep. And if I’m not sleeping, I’m binge watching Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime, etc

Four: What is something that you love to do that your followers would be surprised by?

I love buying socks and receiving them as gifts. I couldn’t tell you how many pairs of socks I have and I like wearing them mix matched.

Five: What is your favorite unnecessarily specific thing to learn about?

I like learning about dog and cat breeds. I worked a lot of animal related jobs and it was and still is fun to learn about new breeds especially with so many mixed breeds out there.

Six: What is something unusual that you know how to do?

I know how to bend the tips of my pointer fingers. Not sure how the skill came about but there you have it, haha.

Seven: Name something you made in the last year and show us if you can.

I made pho for the first time by myself yesterday. My best friend showed me how to make it when she was here and I’m very proud. Pho is a thai noodle soup that has a nice, long process. Took 2 and a half hours for the completed product. And yes, they require tupperware bowls cause I don’t have regular bowls big enough for the portion sizes we eat. 😀

Eight: What is your most recent personal project?

I don’t really have one. I want to tackle refinishing my cabinets one day but I need an extended weekend and more motivation to stop reading a book for more than an hour to make that happen.

Nine: Tell us something that you think about often?

Food. I love eating, like all the time. Every time I leave work, I call my husband and ask him what’s for dinner. It might be breakfast for dinner tonight because I really want to attempt making Millionaire’s bacon.

Ten: Give us something that is your favorite.

This is such a vague question. I have a lot of favorites. My favorite color is purple. My favorite dog breed is pit bull. My favorite food is usually of the noodle variety with the addition of sushi and Chinese/Thai food in general. My favorite month is May because my birthday is during that month and april showers bring may flowers. I can go on forever.

Eleven: Say the first thing that pops into your head.

My work day is almost over. What’s for dinner? hahaha

      I used Chinese rice noodles this round but you can use whatever noodles you want really. I can send you the recipe if you want!

    Your answers are cool too for many reasons! Socks? hell yeah, socks are my best friend… my feet are always cold so I usually wear two pairs at a time 😂
    that finger trick? one of my friends has the same superpower and she loves to freak people out with it! 😀
    I love that you love food because food is great and that soup looks delish!

      Same! In dead of summer, 100 degrees and my feet will be freezing. It’s insanity. Food is the only life sustainer I need besides books, hahaha. Your friend and I can be aliens together! Woohoo!
