I don’t usually do these, but I’ll definitely make an exception for this one because there are some good questions. Thanks to my friend Krystal at Essencious for tagging me! However, I didn’t like the rules. So I’m breaking nearly all of them. I hope the internet police won’t come after me.
Q&A With Marjorie
1. What is your favourite gadget?
My favorite gadget is my iPad. There’s nothing better than getting into bed to lay down with a cup of coffee and my iPad. I can’t curl up with my iMac, as productive as it makes me. There’s just something about the iPad that’s so personal and light that it seamlessly becomes part of you. Kind of like a phone vs laptop for many people. I feel that way about my iPad; I need it around and I hate when someone else picks it up to use it. (I hate my phone, by the way, so we have a rocky relationship that equates to anything but seamless.)
2. Cookies or cakes?
Those are both my food weaknesses, and I wouldn’t be able to choose. Actually, my favorite food in the world is cookie cake — the ultimate hybrid. (One which I will be enjoying for my birthday coming up!)
3. How did you get into blogging?
I guess you can say I stumbling upon blogging by accident. I wanted an outlet for my designs, and One Parade was born!
4. If you were given one million USD what would you do with it?
I would buy my parents a house so they could retire, pay my brother and sister through university, buy a house, send some to family members abroad, and then probably donate a good chunk of it. Whatever is left over I would live off of as needed! What a dream, to have no financial worries… Did you know that most people who win the lottery spend their earnings within 5 years? Money can’t buy you class or wisdom!
5. Can you live without the internet for a whole month?
Absolutely. Anyone can, I think they’ve just forgotten! Though honestly this wouldn’t work out well for me, considering I work for a web development company and the internet is part of my job…
6. OSX or Windows?
Pretty soon my computer, tablet, and phone will all be from Apple. So yes, OSX/iOS. I’m a huge fan of the simplicity and cross-integration!
7. Which social group were you/are you in high school?
The lone wolf or drifter. I had friends in all sorts of social groups, but preferred being alone when I could be. I didn’t really like high school.
8. What is your dream job?
I work for a paycheck. I feel that as soon as you put the title of “job” or “work” on something it becomes less appealing. I feel like “dream job” is kind of a juxtaposition in that sense!
9. How many children do you want? Boys or girls?
10. What is your favourite fairy tale?
Beauty and the Beast. My favorite novel renditions are Rose Daughter and Beauty by Robin McKinley, Beauty having the better character interaction and Rose Daughter having the better ending. I highly recommend any fairy tale fan to give them a read!
11. Do you prefer heavy rain or heavy snow?
I’ve never experienced heavy snow, so I couldn’t say I prefer one over the other. I assume both would call for a book and warm cup of coffee, so bring them on!
