Miss Lou who challenge me some questions along with some questions is a nice blog I frequently read. If you are the least interested in how the Victorians lived, this blog is a must visit. I can't beleive she is the same age as me, she look like an early 20's age. So here are the questions I had to answer.
1. Describe what subset of goth you are?
When it comes to music I would definitely call myself old school goth. I love the guitar based goth music with a slice of synth, the music I grew up with. Otherwise I listen to gothic metal. When it comes to style I’m quite ambivalent. If I dress up it’s mostly in dark mori kei but I also love trad goth and romantigoth. You could actually say that dark mori has elements of both trad goth and romantigoth.
2. What one makeup item could you not live without?
Black mascara, but I could live just fine without makeup.
3. If you could have only one dessert for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Something with chocolate…dark chokolate. There is an Italian brand of chocolate, very expensive but oh so tasty and one little piece lasts forever.
4. You are trapped on an island with three books - what are they?
Master and Margarita by Michail Bulgakov
Emma by Jane Austen
A survival book, (don't try to fool me...)
5. You have to write the ultimate goth novel - what is it called and what is it about?
I have written a steampunk-gothic novel with adventures, love, science, gadgets and gothic buildings, but I have no name for it yet. Maybe “The last one to be expected"...Give me a good advice here, please!!!
I live mostly in my own mind, there are a few stories circling around in my head.
6. You start a goth band - what is it called? Describe it.
Obscuro creperum (means dark angst or something like that) and would of course play trad goth. We would take ourselves very seriously, ha ha.
7. What is your favourite time of year/weather and why?
I would say winter. The summer season is so hectic in my vegetable garden, lots to sow, weed and harvest. Even if I love that, I’ll have my “vacation” in winter when I cuddle up in the sofa wrapped in a blanket, lighting candles and sipping red wine. And if it’s lots of snow, I can go skiing downhills or crosscountry in the forest. Actually I love every time of the year.
8. What TV show is your guilty pleasure.
Ghost Adventures, ha ha “duuude”. But looking at the paranormal series there are too many that has the goal to fright people. The swedish show; "Det okända" and American "Ghost Hunters" are maybe those who have a more neutral tone.
We have our share of paranormal events in our own house, it's not scary, except when someone litterally loudly coughed behind my back(home alone) or stood by the bed at night.
9. You are invited to a goth meet up and picnic, what food are you bringing?
A bottle of Apotic Red, pierogis and a dark chocolate coffin cake.
10. You must name a black cat an über gothy name - what is it?
Bastet of course, an ancient Egyptian cat goddess. I had a cat once called Lupo wich means wolf, she was absolutely crazypants.
I'm sorry but I don't have much time to think out questions to pass along. We had finally beautiful weather and we have spent time in the garden.
The little boys playing.
The big boy helping me with tidying the path.
The magic show we saw last week was nice. The fire show made it cooler. A few of the magician's tricks got me really confused but the others were nearly ok, it was too easy to follow. If you wan't to see a sample of the show, click the link below.
