working on my gender-bent Hamlet
I was tagged by Olivia, the best blogger and friend there is.
I take tea without milk and whenever I can even without sugar- when I drink blended tea I want to taste their real flavour but green tea I can find a bit bitter to drink without sugar.
This is actually a tricky question. My first instinct was to replay 'naturally, I choose the power of flipping through a book and absorbing everything inside of it instantly!'. But then I thought about what an incredible experience reading ‘slowly’ is. I thought about the great pleasure of re-reading a book and finding new details. I thought about the immense joy you feel when you manage to memorise your favourite line or paragraph: it is called ‘learn by heart’ for a reason, I believe. No, I would not choose this power. I would rather be able to apparate/disapparate at will: imagine the amount of ‘slow-reading’ I could do in public places without being disturbed!
I’d travel around all of the UK, discovering all the most interesting historical sites. I’d also take up a nice place on Lake Windermere to relax and write for at least a couple of months.

Mmh, now I dislike Facebook and I don’t use it anymore but I have liked it once, at the very beginning, so I can’t really say I regret it.
Hahahah! Exactly what we did, ma chère Olivia! Talking for hours about books and fandoms, walking throughout the streets of a metropolis appreciating its architecture, and eating good food- because I am great fan of conviviality. Oh, drinking an excellent glass of prosecco would be on the list as well, of course! <3
I am such a rational creature I do not fall in love with actors at all because of the characters they played *SARCASM INTENSIFIES*
Uhm, my toothbrush? Good hygiene is very important to me. My mobile as well, maybe. After all, I have many books on iBooks. Choosing a single one is so difficult because many a material object needs something else to function.
I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS QUESTION ALL MY LIFE.
Expect a separate post soon with an Alternate Universe Hamlet, Princess of Denmark, because Matriarchy reigns.
Rewatching series 2 of Downton makes me want to write a young!Cora and young!Robert fanfiction in which:
a detailed list of things i hate

Right, well, after royalrory and misscrawfords' comments yesterday, I've decided to make this a more frequent thing. :p At least over the summer. Coffee hasn't really kicked in yet though and I feel like a zombie, so I apologize for the lack of thought that's gone in to this. I would have…
