Anything But Books Tag

This was a fun little tag I got from TheBookHoarder on YouTube. Thought I'd give it a try.

1) Name a cartoon that you love.

Animaniacs. Now and forever this will be my favorite cartoon show. Invader Zim is a lot of fun, but Animaniacs is good for me regardless of my mood.

2) What is your favorite song right now?

Xiger Xiger by Hanggai. I'm very new to this group, so I'm listening to their music until my ears bleed.

3) What could you do for hours that isn't reading?

Video games. They don't even have to be immersive games for me to play them for hours on end. The last one that I played and completed all of the achievements for was Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey. A simple game about using words to defeat enemies. It's actually very cute and very fun. I've linked to it's Steam page in the picture below.

4) What is something you love to do that your followers would be surprised by?

I don't hide the fact that I'm a complete tomboy. Never really understood the appeal of a lot of traditionally girly things. But I LOVE going second-hand store shopping with my Mom. I love getting to spend time with her doing something that, when I was younger, I would complain about every step of the way. Now, though, I can make it up to her and have a good time doing something she really enjoys doing.

5) What is your favorite, unnecessarily specific thing to learn about?

Names, their meanings and origins. I come from a family that believes "you get what you name your kids." Meaning that, what you name your child, has an effect on their personality. So whenever I encounter a name that interests me or I wonder about naming conventions from different cultures, I immediately dive in and learn a lot of, seemingly, trivial information.

6) What is something unusual that you know how to do?

I can write with either hand. My left-handed writing isn't as nice as my right-handed, but it's more legible than my husband's regular handwriting.

7) Name something you made in the last year and show, if you can.

I made some Halloween Cupcakes for my husband's office party. Decorating is my weakest skill in baking so I was happy for the chance to really get creative and try something.

8) What is your most recent personal project?

The most recent thing I made was Irish Carbomb Cupcakes for St. Patrick's Day. Chocolate cupcakes made with Guinness. Filled with a whiskey frosting. Topped with Bailey's chocolate frosting. All made from scratch!

9) Tell us something you think about often, maybe while staring out windows.

Honestly, I think about having super powers. Which ones would I want? What would be the long term side-effects? The societal side-effects? Things like that. I'll admit, my favorite "powers" so far are the smaller ones, like being able to affect things on the sub-atomic level.

10) Give us something that's your favorite, but make it oddly specific.

I have poor circulation so my hands are almost always freezing. My husband doesn't react well when I even just try to hold his hand because I'm so painfully cold. However, when I put my cold hands on his, almost always, warm forehead, he immediately relaxes. I love being able to do this. It warms up my hands and calms him down. And makes him look cuter. ^_^

11) What's the first thing that pops into your head?
