Blogging Extravaganza #1: Interview With Myself

Hey guys! Last week I saw Rachel's post for this challenge and I thought I'd sign up. As you probably noticed, I've been pretty absent lately, since I started my internship. This is because I've been a lazy human, basically. However, since I am a responsible adult *snorts*, I've decided to do something to improve my blogging skills. That and I want to join in, because this sounds lice fun. And because I also love talking and rambling (in case you missed that!). So here we are. The first challenge is to interview yourself. Here we go!

Q: Hello, self! What's your name?
A: Hello! I'm Ruby.

Q: Nice to talk to you, Ruby! What's the last book you read that absolutely loved?
A: Stronger Than Fear by Marc Levy. I loved the fact that after reading that book, I'm not sure if the plot unfolded completely in one character's imagination, because he was in a coma, or if those things actually happened.
Awesome! Errr...Next question!

Q: A bookish pet peeve.
A: What kind of questions are these, self? *long sigh* Dog-eared corners. Why is that even a thing? It shouldn't be done!

Q: Wow, don't be so touchy! You are talking to yourself here! A song you currently have on repeat?
A: Huh, I guess that's true! I See Fire by Ed Sheeran. I actually have Ed Sheeran on repeat in general right now.
Good choice, self!

Q: Latest TV show obsession?
A: Ha! That's a long answer. Second Chance, The 100, Strike Back, Blindspot, Supernatural, How To Get Away With Murder, NCIS, Quantico, Once Upon A Time, Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter, Arrow, The Flash, and these are just a few.

Q: Coffee or tea?
A: Both. It depends a lot on my mood. And how hot it is outside.

Q: Favorite ice cream flavor?
A: Mint chocolate chip. Although coffee ice cream is also really tasty!
Yes it is!

Q: What's the funniest book you've ever read?
A: Probably Can You Keep A Secret by Sophie Kinsella. I still giggle whenever I remember the scene when Emma thinks a drawing of a tree, I think, was actually a drawing of a uterus. Because that was the funniest thing ever!

Q: What's one theme you never thought you'd enjoy watching or reading about?
A: Time travel. The idea of landing somewhere in the past or in the future freaks me out for some reason. Either I know absolutely nothing about the world, or I'm used to certain stuff that I wouldn't have access to in earlier centuries. Can we say toilets and hot water?? And yet, I did enjoy watching Outlander. I haven't finished watching the entire season, because I want to read the book first. But as far as I got (I think episode...3?) I enjoyed it. And Claire is a smart woman, which is probably why I enjoyed it so much. Okay, and Jamie too.

Q: Is it strange having your interview taken?
A: By myself you mean? Yes, because apparently I have no imagination when it comes to asking questions! Although that last question was pretty good, if I may say so!

Q: Well, it was nice talking to...myself.
A: Yes it was. As it says in that Facebook meme (that I can't find right now, for some reason), sometimes you need some expert advice, and who better to give it than yourself?

That's it for the first post of the Blogging Extravaganza. I hope you had fun and I can't wait to read your posts too!


  1. Dog-eared corners are the worst. Someone once returned a book to me with a few pages dog-eared and I was all "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE." It really tested our friendship.
    I'm obsessed with Once Upon A Time, SHIELD, Agent Carter (and Supernatural but I'm not completely caught up anymore). And I'm currently rewatching Outlander purely for the sake of Jamie - I mean, for the sake of making sure my friend gets to experience it too.
    Lovely interview, thanks for sharing!

    1. I don't let other people touch my books unless I know they have perfect book-reading etiquette. Like, I know both my parents are on the same page as me when it comes to marking books in such a horrible way. And my grandmother has perfect reading etiquette. But anyone else needs to prove they can treat a book respectfully, otherwise they don't get their hands on my precious books EVAH! And of course you need to rewatch Outlander for the sake of your friends. You need to be there to watch them fall in love with Jamie :D
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I hate lending my books out to people who dog ear corners! I mean...whyyy do people do that?! Itʻs not like itʻs hard to find a scrap piece of paper to use as a bookmark. But basically, thatʻs why I wonʻt lend books out to anyone.

    1. RIGHT??? You can use a freaking bus ticket as a bookmark, a random paper, ANYTHING other than dog-earing corners. I think they do it because they're either mean or because no one taught them proper book reading etiquette.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Ugh, I HATE dog-eared corners. They ruin the book. RUIN IT. (Though I have to admit, there's something nice about a worn paperback with a cracked spine sometimes.) Mint-chocolate chip is actually one of my least favorite flavors of anything. I mean, yeah, I'll eat it--it's free food. But why we keep mixing mint with chocolate is beyond me. Thanks for joining in!

    1. I adore cracked spines. Especially when I know I did it (because I've read it so many times, the book is probably close to falling apart, but it's a sign of a well-loved book in my mind). I don't know why we mix it together, but to me is the most fantastic taste ever. LOL Next to french fries dipped in chocolate ice cream, but that's another topic.
      Thanks for stopping by and for coming up with this idea!
