The question thing

OK, I'm borrowing this idea from Kaylee, who borrowed it from a couple of her friends, but I can't remember which friends and can't be bothered to go back to her blog to check. All that matters is it looked like fun, so I thought I'd borrow it for my own blog.

Anyway, on this blog post (well, in the comments section of this blog post) you can each ask me any question you like. Be it something you've always wanted to know but didn't know if you should ask, or something that pops in to your head after my invitation to ask me a question. Doesn't matter which. Either way, ask away! :)

Edited to add:
You may ask more than one question, but you may only ask another question after I have answered your previous question. Also, you can only submit questions for as long as this post is visible on the front page of my blog. My blog shows 10 posts at a time, so this means that you have until there are 10 posts more recent than this one to submit questions.

I would like to know what you think of the British Royal family and of Prince Charles in particular. I just saw his face on Architectural Digest magazine which had a bunch of pictures of fancy manors in the UK.

What was the name of the imaginary friend you had as a kid? If you had one that is!

Tori_Z said...

LadyStyx:
OK, will keep an eye out for your question :)

Iggy:
I have to say, I don't really give them much thought. I think they're extremely stuck-up (most of them anyway) and don't see why they're so important to be honest. Prince Charles is OK though. He's one of the few that seems to actually give a damn about people outside his family. An opinion, thankfully shared by at least his eldest son (William). Other than that, I don't really have an opinion on the royal family.

Rachel:
I never really had an imaginary friend that stuck around. Every so often I'd remember that Carl had one and want to "play" too, so I'd claim to have one called "Stephanie" but she wasn't one of those imaginary friends that had to join in with everything and got spoken to like she really existed or anything. It was just a case of "Stephanie's doing this" or "Stephanie's doing that" if you know what I mean.

Intense Guy said...

Can I ask another question?

Oops... that doesn't count... does it?

Ack! That's two questions and I've not asked what I want to ask yet.

Hi Tori - I found this post because I'm curious how other bloggers handle reader Q&A. I didn't like having all my reader conversations buried in comments so I built a widget that turns reader questions and blogger answers into inline posts. I'd love your comments on the idea - please try it out at Askablogr.com and thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have.

Tori_Z said...

Iggy:
Hmm... Well, since it's you, I guess I can let you ask another question. :)

Chris:
It's a good idea, but personally I find the current layout of blogger good enough. I'm sure there will be a fair few people who like your idea better, but for someone like myself who relys on a screen reader program the current blogger layout is easier. Good idea though. :)

LadyStyx said...

*nods* I like Chris's idea...I may have to check it out. Not sure it's right for me either, but it's a great idea for those that have questions in general and not necessarily geared towards the entry at hand. For entry based questions, I really like the one in Kaylee's blog (and my friend Michael's) where the author can answer each reader's comment within or just after their post. Makes it easier reading...but that's just my opinion too ;)

Oh wait...I was supposed to be askin a question... What are the weirdest things you tend to do? You know, the little quirks (that we all have) that make Tori who she is...

Tori_Z said...

LadyStyx:
Yeah, I quite like the way the comments thing on Kaylee's blog works too.

As for your question...

I think everyone who knows me will agree that the main one is my constant chattering. I'll talk for hours on pretty much any topic that jumps in to my head, even if I know nobody's listening to me. You can even have a full conversation with me when I'm sleeping. Only difference is that I remember conversations I've had when awake, but don't even know of the existance of conversations I had when asleep until someone asks about them and tells me about them when I wake up. I am good though, nine times out of ten, if I'm asleep and someone asks if I'm sleeping, I tell them "yes"... Not my fault if they don't believe me. LOL!

And, sometimes I'll come up with some kind of weird question - like "how old is The Loch Ness Monster?" - and bug everyone until I find the answer. I'm sure it annoys people at times, but enquiring minds need to know, and I have to find the answers somewhere, don't I?

I also tend to rely on a cup of tea the way some people rely on a cup of coffee in the mornings, and can function a lot better after a cup of tea than I can if I miss my cup of tea in the morning.

There may be more that I'm not aware of, or that I'm forgetting, but there you have it. Hope that answers your question. If it doesn't, feel free to say so.

LadyStyx said...

I, too, have to have my cuppa tea. It used to be for the caffeine but not so much anymore (I've been on decaf at home for over a year now). It's more for the taste than anything else anymore.
Gotta love the quirks any given person has because they are what makes that person who they are.

theteacher said...

LOL. Yeah, I've heard a lot about Carl's imaginary Megan. And a lot of my class have imaginary friends too! I did for a bit, but it didn't last!

KAYLEE said...

where is your favorite place to eat?

Tori_Z said...

Kaylee:
It depends if you mean dinner or lunch. For lunch (like baguettes) it's a tie between "Subway" and a sandwich place in our local town that's simular to Subway and is called "Crumbs." But, for dinner it's got to be the Chinese resteraunt not too far from us called "The Royal Kitchen"

KAYLEE said...

okay I have one where is your ideal place to go on a vacation?

Tori_Z said...

Kaylee:
Hmm... I never really thought about it before. I don't tend to go on many vacations. I suppose my ideal place to go would be somewhere cold, like Canada or The North Pole, or Lapland, or somewhere like that (preferably in Winter when it will definately be nice and cold). I don't do too well in too much heat for long. Although, I would like to go to Florida (I want to go to Disney Land). And, I'd like to visit Scotland one day, since the furthest North I've been in the UK is my trip up to visit Carl and Rachel in Norwich, where as I've been to several places along the South of the UK.

ChicagoLady said...

What is Kelly's recipe for his sloppy joes?

Is that a valid question, even though it's not a personal question about you?

Tori_Z said...

ChicagoLady:
Yes, that's a valid question. LOL!

He says it's:

Ground beef (or hamburger)
Tomato paste
And a large bun

Brown the ground beef. Once that's done, take the ground beef and put it in a bowl that's lined with paper towel to get rid of most of the greece. Take out the paper towel and throw it away. Then add the tomato paste and mix it well. Season to your taste. Put as much of the ground beef as you want in the bun.
