Liebster award answers

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 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.

  1. Väldigt intressant läsning, kul att få veta mer om dig!


    Kram, Jenny

  2. Har du skrivit en bok?! Har du försökt får den publicerad? Den låter mycket intressant :)

    1. Jag har flera som jag har kommit ganska långt med men det ligger vilande eftersom fritiden är full med annat. Det är ganska skönt att åka till de där andra världarna och se en annan verklighet. Den där steampunkhistorian funderar jag faktiskt på att göra något vettigt av :)

  3. Thanks for answering the questions and for your compliments. :) I love your band name and your steampunk/gothic idea for a novel. Plus your picnic sounds very yummy.

  4. It is always fun to see people's answers to these! I am interested in hearing more about the Steampunk Gothic novel someday. I am glad the weather is better for you now!

  5. Hehehe, I DO have a black cat named Bastet! Good choice! :-)

    1. It's an excellent name. Almost all cats have a dignity like a god/godess.

  6. Your snow is all gone! We're at that horrible stage where the everything is becoming solid muck. Another few days of above freezing temps and the trucks won't be coming down the driveway anymore. Still lots of snow to melt yet though! I bet it feels good to get back out in your garden. :)

  7. Aw, congrats! ^^ I loved your post, then again, you got some fun questions! I'm terribly bad at giving titles - I also have some sketches and halfly written novels still untitled - , but I sure hope to read your novel one day! ^^

    Bastet and Lupo are cool names, but I seem to tend to give silly names to my pets; you know, caroony names, or odd, oldish human names, that nowever ever uses anymore...I once had a cat called Rodolfo which everyone thinks was inspired by the well known illusionist, but actually, it came from a cheesy latino soap opera my mom used to watch...anyway, I'm ranting again...! -.-
