Would You Rather – Christmas Edition

Hi, Hey, Hello!

I’m throwing all caution to the wind now and am just talking about all kinds of festive things.

Today it’s all about would you rather

Would you rather…

 

Not celebrate Christmas next year? Or not celebrate your birthday next year?
I’m turning 25 next year and I kind of don’t care, which I never really do anyway, I mean it’s gonna be a Monday, I hate being the centre of attention and I can eat cake whenever. All this to say that I wouldn’t want to miss out on living my life in tinsel and putting fairy lights over everything and eating all the fooooodddd. Mini sausages wrapped in bacon? Sign me up.

Never receive another gift from anyone ever again? Or be forced to give everyone in your family an inappropriate gift?

Looks like everyone is getting inappropriate gifts.

Grow a permanent Santa beard? Or Grow permanent reindeer antlers?
Basic bitch me up and give me some reindeer antlers. I’ll find a flower crown to really style it out.

Celebrate Christmas every day of the year? Or never celebrate Christmas ever again?
Oh never again. I get annoyed when Christmas effectively starts in October and then by the time it actually comes around I’m kind of ready for it to be done. If it lasted all year I’d just make like The Grinch and go live in a cave.

Get the presents you wanted for Christmas? Or get $100,000 for Christmas?
Show me the money.

Would you rather be married to Santa Clause or Jack Frost?
Santa, I guess? I dunno…

Never listen to Christmas music ever again? Listen to music every day of your life?
Never again. Like I said before, there is only so much I can take. Some of those Christmas songs are very in your face, not to be trifled with all the time.

Would you rather have to sit on Santa’s lap for an hour in a mall? Or find a mouse in your Christmas stocking every year during the 12 days of Christmas?
Mice. Surely if I know it’s there then dealing with it becomes a piece of piss?

Drink a barrel of eggnog? Drink a barrel of ginger beer?
…Neither…

Become an elf? Or become a reindeer?
Elf. Seems like a more manageable work load.

Only listen to soca/reggae version of Christmas songs? Or only listen Japanese version of Christmas songs?
Give me a reggae version of White Christmas… (I could have had any song there, that was apparently just the first one that came to mind).

Would you rather spend Christmas alone? Or with strangers?
Alone.

And that’s yet another Christmas tag done. I’m gonna try and not do another one of these tomorrow, but who knows whether I will actually be successful in that or not. I sure as hell don’t.

Would You Rather – Bookish Edition

Hi, Hey, Hello!

So I came across this post over on Tabby’s blog  when it was posted and filed it away in a part of my brain to go back to it when I eventually got back on my own blog. And as I declared yesterday, that has happened so here it is.

The Would You Rather – Bookish Edition Tag

  1. Read only trilogies or stand alones?  Stand alone, because the idea of only committing to trilogies is such a commitment and sometimes you just don’t want to make that kind of commitment.
  2. Read only male or female authors?  Female.  I’ve always tended to veer towards female authors anyway whether I mean to or not. My top 3 favourite books come from female authors, sometimes their stories are just more interesting and about characters.
  3. Shop at Barnes & Noble or Amazon?  I’ve only been to Barnes and Noble once and that was now over 2 years ago (*sobs*). So my equivalent would be Waterstones and I’ve spent many an hour in one of them. Being surrounded by all the books is my happy place. Can’t get that from Amazon.
  4. All books become movies or t.v. shows? TV shows. More time to get in depth with scripts and stories.
  5. Drop your book in the toilet or watch it fall into a wood chipper?  The toilet. It will dry out and if the toilet’s clean than it’s basically just water. I can deal with a water stained book (just about) but if it falls into a wood chipper (also don’t know that I would ever encounter a wood chipper casually in London) than I’m fucked.
  6. Read only 1 book a year and remember everything or read 100 books a year and remember nothing? If that one book was Infinite Jest then I would do that because just looking at that book and knowing what I know about Foster Wallace’s style exhausts me and I would probably need a whole 365 days to get through and understand it. However if it isn’t that one book, then I’d read 100. Something would stick somewhere somehow.
  7. Read only the 1st page of a book or only the last page of a book? Ummmm, probably last page, because I have a bit of a problem with reading last pages of books. In that I have to physically (mentally) restrain myself from flicking to the end to see what words I’m going to be left with when I close the book.
  8. Get locked in a library or locked in a bookstore?  Bookstore. More specifically Waterstones Piccadilly, because it’s the greatest place ever.
  9. Drop your book in a lake or accidentally set it on fire? Again, water damage is easier to deal with and means the book still exists. Fire is damaging.
  10. Have the end of a book spoiled or never know what happens? Have the ending spoiled. I’m not necessarily all that fussed if it happens in some contexts. But I need to know endings, I don’t like not knowing.
  11. Read a book that is missing the middle chapter or read a book that is missing the first and last chapters?  I’ve read a book with missing chapters before because I borrowed it from the library and apparently people just remove pages from books. It wasn’t that bad, just required some googling to try and fill in the blanks. Beginning and endings are important though and they can’t be messed with.
  12. Have to start every conversation of your life with a quote from a book OR not be able to remember any quotes from any books but be able to speak normally? Look I quote Shakespeare and shit in my everyday life like it’s nothing. Quotes are the blood in my veins I have no issue with starting every conversation of my life with a quote, because with some people it feels like I already do
  13. Never be allowed to read the last chapter of a book but be able to read as many books as you want OR only be allowed to read one book a year, but be allowed to finish it? I like to know what endings are, so even though it pains me I would only read one book a year.

And that’s the tag done. Feel free to give it a go if you want. I’m not formally tagging anyone as technically I wasn’t tagged myself (oops).

Parentheses count: 5. See you tomorrow!
