Sunshine Blogger Award

Comments 11 Standard

Now it’s been some time since I’ve done one of these beautiful posts. I really like them as I think they are a great way of getting to know bloggers and I am always honoured and humbled that I’ve been nominated.

I was nominated by Ashli over on You Me and Benny – which if you don’t follow I highly urge you too. You can expect Movies, Marvel, Witty Banter and Dogs – what more can you ask for.

Also due to great minds thinking alike – Sophie over on The Smurfy Gamers Blog tagged me in this post too – which I had to laugh about because originally this post was going to go out on Friday, but I bumped it for the Hellboy Review and guess who was tagged in my post as a nominee – Yep, that’s right – Sophie. So now I am sat here after mowing the lawn on this sunny Sunday lunch time editing and adding more questions. Whoop.

    • We have a cat which is lovely, but my god she is a pain in the bum sometimes. I can’t wait to get a dog!
  • What’s your favorite place to go in the Summer?
    • The beer garden, nothing better than lounging about with an ice-cold beer, talking for hours and just living in the moment

The Questions – The Smurfy Gamers Blog Version

  • What game are you most looking forward to this year?
    • Well hands down this has to be The Last of Us 2.
  • If you could play a game for the first time again, what game would you choose?
    • Well now I just have The Last of Us in my head – I’d love to play that again. Or the Modern Warfare series, like if you put all 3 into one massive game, that story line is deep.
  • If you could be part of a game series, which series would you chose and what role do you see yourself in?
    • I’d love to be a Cowboy in the Red Dead Redemption series – I’d play a Gunslinger called “Preacher” where I exact revenge on the unjustified and rob from the unworthy.
  • If you could visit any in-game world where would you most like to visit?
    • Probably something like Fallout 3 – just to try out the Wasteland life for a bit

    • I’d love to visit Casablanca
  • What was the last film you watched and would you recommend it?
    • Last night I watched Mission Impossible . . . Rouge Nation – well I think it was that one. I think the newer ones are great fun and would recommend them. Just easy-going films.

  • What is your favourite soundtrack (Game, Film, TV Show)?
    • I go through phases because I love so many. But this minute the best favourite I can think of is . . . Grease!

Five things you might not know about me…

Comments 41 Standard

After being tagged in this by Helen over on “Social Matters and Natters” I spent the longest time wracking my brains wondering what on earth I could share with you, the stuff you might not know. The problem is I am such an open book that I am not sure what you already know and what you don’t.

So while I work that list out, why don’t you go and check Helen’s blog out, she covers a selection of topics, from Marketing and Brands, to life, to the joys of snail mail. Well worth a follow.

Image result for nick miller aging gifI have always felt like I have an old personality in a young body. I am not sure if it’s my morals and outlooks that seems outdated and old now days. Or it’s based on the old movies I used to watch. But I just feel there is a right and wrong way about things and in modern times they could seem very old.

 

 


 

Image result for my biggest fear gifGoing Blind is one of my biggest fears, I am such a visual person, my love of movies, photography and a nice sunset. When I first needed glasses I was struck with a horrific headache and sore eyes that I realised my worst fear is going blind. (Even gaining Daredevil Powers wouldn’t help compensate)

 

 


Image result for hot fuzz red or white gifWhen I am older I would love to own and run a country pub or B&B. I think it’s a real end game job. Somewhere down south, probably Cornwall area – beautiful part of the country down there.

 

 


 

Image result for eurotrip gifDuring my young teen years I was involved in a Cultural Exchange project with a group of Hungarians. I learnt a lot about myself on those trips, met some friends for life and did some unbelievable things. Travelling around the rural countryside of North Hungry also had it’s scary moments.

 


 

Image result for fist with your toes gifI don’t like wearing socks and shoes, any opportunity I get I’ll take them off. I much prefer to be barefoot. There is something free and liberating about it. While also feeling like John McClane if I do it in the office.

 

 


 

Well there we go, that is my list. Did you know any of them things? This post was tough, a really struggled to find interesting but unknown facts about me. I hope you liked it.

I want to see Emma, Matt and Siobhan give this a go. Come on down people. Give everyone mentioned in this a follow, they are all amazing and wonderful people.

Thanks!
