Tag, You're It

I have been tagged by Sharon, the lovely Goth Gardener, to play a game of Darkling Tag.  I'm not Goth, but I can totally can dig the lifestyle and the wardrobe.  Plus, I love making lists and answering questionnaires.  (Warning:  the photos in this post have nothing to do with the content.)

My fig trees have started producing!  It's going to be a great year.

What is your favorite candle scent?  I love Yankee Candle's 'Clean Cotton'.

Do you have a favorite book?  "The Wizard of Oz".

Are you a tea or coffee person?  Coffee!!

What is your favorite perfume/cologne?  Chanel No. 5

Do you have a celebrity crush?  Nicholas Cage.

If you could change your name to a stereotypical 90s/2000s gothy name, what would it be?  I had to look this one up to see what my choices are.  There is an interesting list on THIS web site.  I chose Luna Wren.  Now that I think of it, this would be a good cat name.

What are your top three tips for surviving hot weather while wearing black?  By hiding in the air conditioning as much as possible.  As a general rule, I do my best to stay out of hot weather.  When it's unavoidable, I try to stay in the shade.

What song makes you happy?  I thought about this one for a while, and I realize that there's not one particular song that I can think of.  I love hard rock and metal mostly, but Motown and 70's Disco is also on my list of favorites.  Pretty much anything that gets me dancing in the car makes me happy.

Are you active in the arts?  I make a LOT of stuff, does that count? 

What is your number one hobby?  Gardening, knitting, and crocheting.  (That's three.  Whatever)

There were enough figs to make a quick batch of jam!

Thought Provokers:

If you could be a supernatural creature, what would it be and why?  A fairy, because they can fly.

What horror monster-based super power would you have?  Time travel.  

Do you feel confident or uncomfortable interacting with other Goths or gothy people (online or in real life)?  People are people, no matter what group they belong to.  I get along with just about everyone.  

Is there something you wish there was more of in your subculture?  I'm not sure that I have a subculture.  I'm a history geek, rose lover, carpenter/remodeler ... so many interests and tendencies.  I follow my own instincts.  

Care to share an embarrassing story related to your "darkliness"?  I don't really get embarrassed.  I usually hear  "You don't look anything like I thought you would" when I meet people for the first time.  I like that.

How are you at DIY?  I can DIY just about anything.  Small crafty projects, or a whole-house renovation ... if I can see it, I can probably do it.  (You already knew this, tho.)

Finished!  (Recipe is HERE.)

Confessional (aka, True or False):

I love watching cheesy romance films.  False.  I don't watch many movies.  My favorite TV time is spent watching programs that teach me something.  "Modern Marvels", "Antiques Roadshow", "Barnwood Builders", etc.  I loved "This Old House" in the early years.

I ALWAYS remember to wash off my makeup at night.  False.  There are many mornings when I wake up looking like a raccoon, with mascara and eye liner smeared all over the place.

I sleep with plushies.  Nope. 

I wear non-black pajamas most nights.  True.  Colorful nightshirts.  The one I'm wearing now is pink. 

I think Andrew Eldrich is overrated.  I don't know who this is.

I don't like vampires.  False.  I love the romantic idea of vampires.  

I don't like clubs.  True.  I had a brief period in my late teens when I went to clubs.  I'd rather spend evenings with friends, with food and beer/wine and conversation.  

I don't enjoy graveyards.  FALSE!!!  A trip to a new city isn't complete for me until I have searched out and explored the cemetery.

Blood makes me queasy.  False.  I'm not squeamish.  This trait comes in really handy in emergencies, or when watching "Bones" on TV.  (My favorite show, BTW.)

I'd sooner faint than pet a spider.  False.  I like spiders.  Jumping Spiders are especially cute and interesting.

I don't like haunted houses.  False.  I live in one ... according to other people   I have never heard or experienced anything here, but others have.

I've never read Dracula.  False.  I love "Dracula".

I think "Bela Lugosi's Dead" is a long and boring song.  I don't know this song.  I'm going to have to look it up and give it a listen.

I'm supposed to tag three people to continue the game, but I'm gonna skip that part.  If you feel inclined, copy the questions and do your own list.  Let me know if you do, because I would love to see your answers.
