>Mental Flossing

>Just so you guys know, I have to alter these questions a little so they make sense. Most normal people aren’t using these as triggers for blog writing, they are answering them in the comments of the site I pinch them from.

1. What was your favorite children’s book as a kid? Any really great books or authors most people haven’t discovered?

The books I remember the most are the classics that my moms bought for me and my brother… amongst them were Heidi, Seven Cousins, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, Beautiful Joe, Black Beauty, Tom Sawyer and a couple of others. I read all of Ronald Dahl, Beverly Cleary and Judy Blume. When I was really young I liked “The Monster at the End of this Book” (it has Grover in it and it is very, very funny). “A Wrinkle in Time” is a fantastic children’s book that I think more people should read, and as an adult one of my favourite books is “The Little Prince”. Oh, I also like the Harry Potter books, but I suppose I really shouldn’t admit to that…

2. Do you have any random questions you’d like to see answered?

Do ducks’ feet get cold when they are swimming in a pond in the winter? If not, why not? And if so, how the freak can they stand it?

3. What’s the farthest you ever walked?

I’m assuming this means in one go. I don’t know. There have been a few times where I’ve walked for hours and hours through cities just touring around.

4. Do you have any favorite sites to find great stories?

Not particularly. I use Google Reader to catch up on all sorts of stories though. I find blogs that catch my eye and keep up with them.

5. What not-yet-released movie are you most excited about?

I’m so behind on movies that I don’t even know what’s coming up. I should probably get myself a TV. I never know what is going on anymore.
