I Moustache You Some Questions

If you follow me on instagram you probably saw that I’m having a hard time with my reading right now. I’m not worried – talking to some of you it seems like we’re all suffering from the same malady. But being in a reading slump does have some repercussions when you blog about books. So when I saw that Jennine from My Life in Books had tagged me in this little quiz, well it could not have come at a better time! This should buy me some time to get excited about something I read right?


Here’s the deal. I’m going to answer some questions and then if you’re in a similar reading slump and you need to play for time on your blog, then feel free to take it and play too!

Four names people call me other than my real name:
That’s it. I’ve never been cool enough to have more nicknames.

Four jobs I’ve had:
An au pair
Bank teller
A fairy at children’s birthday parties
Paper route

Four movies I would/have watched more than once:
About Time (have you watched this yet? Watch it now. It’s the best. It always makes me smile)
Love Actually
I Love You, Man

Four books I’d recommend:
A Man Called Ove
The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow
All the Light We Cannot See
Night Film

Four places I have lived:
North Vancouver, Canada
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Culemborg, the Netherlands
Burnaby, Canada

Four places I have been:
Vienna, Austria

Four places I’d rather be:
At my in-laws’ log cabin
Wandering the streets of some romantic city
At the library
In my corner of the couch snuggled with my dog, reading

Four things I don’t eat:
Shark fin soup

Four of my favorite foods:
Any kind of pasta

Four TV shows that I watch:
American Horror Story
The Good Wife
Downton Abbey

Four things I am looking forward to this year (2015):
Going on my honeymoon!
Going to Barcelona to watch good friends get married!
Did I mention I’m finally going on my honeymoon! That counts for all the things!

Four things I’m always saying:
“Who’s a good boy?” – to my darling fur baby, Henrik
“What colour should I paint my nails?” – to my husband who could not care less
“F*@% off” – to denote surprise/delight/any other emotion (I have a filthy mouth)
“I hate people.”
If you want to play, I just tagged you.

  1. I did see About Time, but Love Actually is the best!
    I never did read The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow. I’m pretty sure it’s somewhere on my list, though.
    Have fun on your Honeymoon! Is it the same trip as the Barcelona trip, or are they separate?
    It was fun getting to know more about you! I hope you get out of your reading slump soon, though. 🙂

    • But you can really only watch Love Actually at Christmas and About Time can be watched ANY TIME.
      Barcelona and the honeymoon are one in the same. A quick detour on the way to Italy. SO EXCITED.
      I’m reading Unbroken right now which is pretty unbelieveable so I’m hopeful that I’ve kicked it. Otherwise it might be time to break out the big guns: Maeve Binchy.

  2. So much fun to learn more about you! I’m so happy you mentioned About Time because I loved it and was so worried that maybe no one else had seen it because it deserves more recognition.

    • Very rarely. They are just not my thing. I fall very firmly in the sweets category. Cookies, cakes, pastries, chocolate, ice cream? Give me all of them. Chips? I’m good.
      I can’t believe you haven’t bought A Man Called Ove yet. Go get it now.

  3. You are so much more well traveled than I am. I’ve never left the country (I don’t count Canada simply because it wasn’t a culture shock for me. Although I did always wonder as a kid how my American dollar could buy way more than a dollar’s worth of candy in the 80s! Lol). Guess that should be a bucket list item for me.

    • It was kind of cheating – I lived in Amsterdam for 6 months and travelling from there was so easy. I’ve been almost nowhere in the States or even in Canada so….As for the dollar value – don’t get me started. It’s like 82 cents to your dollar right now!
