Liesbter award and Obituary challenge

Howdy!
It's been a while (again), I know; thing is I have my last exam on tuesday and I barely have the time to breathe, let alone blogging T_T
In the meantime, since I don't have any outfit pictures, I'll answer to the questions of Madame Mari Mortem, who tagged me for the Liebster Award, and I'll do my obituary for the Obituary Challenge (thanks to Dani Death Biscuit for the tag).
I'll write my tags at the end, they're for both the award and the challenge :D!

1. If you could live anywhere and be anything, what and where would it be?
... I'm feeling quite the cliche by telling you this, but: I'd like to be a writer and live in Manhattan. I swear this wasn't inspired by Carrie Bradshaw.

2. Have you seen any kind of "wonder of the world" attraction, and if so which? ( ex. Grand Canyon, Northern Lights, Eiffel Tower, Stonehenge...)
Uhm, yes, I've seen the Grand Canyon and the Eiffel Tower. Funny thing is I have the Colosseum five hours away from home but I haven't seen it yet.

3. You're a chef-- what's today's special?
Ugh, I suck at cooking. But I can make you a delicious pasta with tomato sauce! And a lot of parmesan...!

4. In the past month (not "ever"), what was one limited item you wanted SO badly but ended up not buying and deeply regret that decision?

5. You just won a $500 gift card, where is it for and what will you buy there?
A bookshop, of course. I'd exhaust my aNobii wishlist.

6. How do you resolve a conflict? "Make love not war, man" or "Let's find the happy median" or "DEMS FIGHTN WORDS!!!1!"
Oh no, conflicts are just not for me. The time when I wasted time on getting angry with people has *gone*; I just put a distance between me and that person, always maintaining courtesy.

7. You just won backstage passes-- what show/band are they for?
Well, I'd say the Muse right now because some weeks ago I found out that they're coming in my country on november but there weren't any tickets available.

8. Au naturel or Eau de toilette (no perfume or perfume)? If you chose perfume, what is your favorite scent or scent combo?
No perfume :/ I always forget to put it on... also, I don't like smelling scents all around me.

9. When you die will you be buried or cremated? And during your funeral will your casket be open or closed, and why?
Omg. I've never really thought about that. I guess I don't really care, except that I DON'T want a catholic service. I absolutely don't want a priest to speak at my funeral. As regards the rest, they can do whatever they please with my body, as long as they bury me in my black lace frilly clothes.

10. What's your idea of a romantic or awesome day out?
I'm not really the candlelight dinners&walk on the beach kind of person... I don't know, the best thing I could think of right now is: boyfriend, sofa, blanket, hot chocolate and endless episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer :D.

11. If you could learn an ancient fighting style, from which culture would you pick?
I wouldn't know, I'm not into fighting and I don't know any styles :/ but if I had to fight for some reason, I'd totally go for a good old machine gun :D

Aaaand here are my questions:
1. Who's your favourite artist?
2. What genre do you prefer to read?
3. What is your life's primary goal?
4. What do you think is your biggest skill?
5. Can you play a musical instrument? Which one, and how long have you played it?
6. Who were you in high school: the cheerleader, the jock, the nerd, the goth, all of these things together XD...?
7. How is your perfect outfit? Describe it or just post a picture :)
8. Do you think of yourself as of an introvert or an extrovert person?
9. Which is your favourite cake?
10. If you were a fictional character, who would you be?
11. If you could solve one problem in the world, which one would it be?

And then, the Obituary Challenge! Thanks to Dani Deathbiscuit for tagging me :).

The Rules:




  1.  Link back to whoever tagged you.
  2. Put these rules in your tag

  4. Write a paragraph or two (or more if necessary) in length.
  5. You may tag up to 10 people, and be sure to link them.
  6. Have fun, because creative writing is one of the greatest joys in life!

My Obituary:

"Shannon Rutherford, age 24, died at one p.m. in her house, while trying to cook french fries for her father and her friend: they tried in vain to rescue her from the blaze that had risen from the pan, but unfortunately it was too late. Her body has been taken to the 
Xxxxx Hospital morgue; her mortuary chapel will be open from 10:00 a.m. of thursday, September 6th, until the beginning of the service which is taking place at 11:00 a.m.
She will be buried in her favourite corset, tutu and fishnet stockings, according to her will which she expressed in her very last blog entry. Since she was an exam away from graduation, the rector of the University of Xxx has decided to reward her with a posthumous degree in Linguistic and Cultural Mediation.
She will be remembered for accomplishing absolutely nothing in her life, but having a really good taste in clothing."

Ok: it took me HALF AN HOUR to write this XD.
Btw it actually happened some years ago: the blaze was one and a half meters high, I burnt the whole kitchen and almost got myself killed. Funny thing is that I've never thought about that as of a life-threatening experience; I always tell this at parties.

      A catshelter, that's so sweet <3 I recently found a new-born black kitten on the street and it broke my heart having to leave him there. Had there been a catshelter I wouldn't have had to!
