Awesome Questions From A Geeky Gal

I. What are you currently binge-watching?

Real Neat Blog
Thomas Sanders

My binge watch at the moment is on YouTube by one of the sweetest YouTubers of all time Thomas Sanders. He is an adorable talented puppy and I love him.

He is originally from Vine where you might remember him as the StoryTime guy. Now he makes these amazing videos called Sander Sides were he literally talks to different sides of his personality. It is kid-friendly, he has Broadway chops, and he writes all of his own stuff.

Also, my forever binge-watch is Markiplier and Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

II. What quirks do you have?

Oh, man I have so many. You may have noticed that I love colourful lipsticks. I have so many. I feel like if I put on mascara, pencil my brows and add a bold lip then boom! I’m all dressed up. No colour is out of the question for me. Blues, greens, blacks, I love them all! Here are some selfies I love taking with the lipsticks:

Another quirk I have is I also give all my plushies personalities and talk to them on a regular basis. If Le’Boo sits on one I make him apologise (He’s so patient!!!). I’ve even gone to the extent of making my Green Baby Squishy a YouTube Channel… click here.

Finally, I’m pretty sure it’s odd to nest every time I go to bed. Le’Boo finds this absolutely hilarious. I know everyone gets themselves comfortable when they get into bed, but I have a system ok?

III. Have you ever been to a convention?

No, sadly I have not. There aren’t a lot of conventions here on the little island of Ireland, and when there is they tend to be super packed. I’m totally anxious in large crowds, and it’s not like conventions you see in movies. There isn’t much room to walk around and you spend most of your time queueing. However, if I did go I would totally love to cosplay. I love cosplayers so much I even wrote about it in an anthropology essay in college.

IV. What would you rate 10 / 10?

Oh easy so “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” best T.V show ever so 10/10. The feeling of a fresh pair of socks, great sensation 10/10. Dried fried noodles, my favourite junk food 10/10. Reading is the best pastime, so 10/10. Finally, of course, Le’Boo is super handsome, 10/10, nay, 11/10.

V. When did you first realize you were a geek?

I think it was when I was very young. In the most cliche movie sense, people made fun of me because of the things I enjoyed. I loved reading, video games and science fiction.

Star Wars

I would play pretend and I would be told that’s a really childish thing to do. As I got older I just became more ‘geeky’ and instead of worrying about boys, I wanted the next Harry Potter instalment.

For a long time, I thought there was something wrong with me and would only talk about geeky things to my closest friends.

Now I let my geek flag fly!

VI. What kind of art do you enjoy most?

I love comic book art for sure. I have several comic-inspired tattoos. Also cartoon art like Disney, Hannah Barbara, and Cartoon Network.


In regards to more traditional forms, I love tribal art, surrealist art, and Van Gogh is my favourite painter. I got to see some of his art in person in January. We visited the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam and it was absolutely amazing.

My favourite of his is the almond blossom.

  1. My daughter is just like you. She is always saying she is so weird but I tell her she is not that at all, she is fun, creative, beautiful, a giant Star Wars fanatic, imaginative, oh and makes everyone laugh. My son is the same way but a little more serious when it comes to life. They both love their superheros and will wait in long lines for hours to see first showings…now that I do tease them about and also my daughters taste in poodle skirts. One is covered in macaroons and the other has light sabers all over it.Congratulations on the award.
