Well hello there! Happy-nearly-Christmas! I have been pretty rubbish this last week about getting on the blog- I blame it on “end of year exhaustion” (a diagnosis I just made up but whatever- it could totally become a thing…)
Anyhoo- cos this is a particularly nostalgic time of year I thought I’d do the Nostalgic Tag, which I was tagged to do (*coughs*) ahem, a long time ago, by the awesome Rosypop! Thank you!
1.) Make sure to thank the person who tagged you and leave a link to their blog
2.)Answer all of the questions, if you don’t know just leave the question.
3.) Remember to copy and paste the lame picture and rules!
4.) Have a good time>:D
5.) Tag as many people as you want! You are never limited.
- What are some of the tv shows you remember watching?
No wonder I was obsessed with witches!
- What were the classic movies?
I remember Fantasia and Bambi being my two favourites (I was weird). Oh and I was obsessed with with movies like Bugsy Malone and Pollyanna!! I also had traditions about when I would rewatch Prince of Egypt (spring) and Hocus Pocus (Halloween) etc!
2b: movies you remember watching?
So my childhood was a weird mix of Disney and also the things my older brothers liked that I secretly watched- like Enemy of the State, Gone in 60 Seconds and Con Air. To this day I have oddly childlike nostalgia for those movies!
- Best memories about being little?
Running around and actually believing if I just wished hard enough I could fly!
- Some of the things you did when you were little?
Running around in the garden making potions out of leaves and singing made up songs. Wrapping myself in my favourite blanket and hiding under the stairs cos the Orcs were coming (that’s totally logical!) Writing myself letters from Hogwarts, posting them and then acting surprised… Yeah, ok, I was strange.
- Some philosophy from your childish “Socrates”. Jk just list some things that you used to think.
I used to think people got married by bumping into each other on the street and saying “hey, let’s get married”- that way it was potluck whether you end up with someone good or not.
- Favorite toys?
Cuddly toys! I was very fickle about it though and had a new favourite every time I got another one!
- Games that you played?
I used to play with my brothers a lot. One of my brothers would tell us all what to do and then we’d do it! Also I learnt how to build epic forts.
- Make up your own question and answer here if u want to lol. – what music reminds you of childhood?
The Beatles, Van Morrison and Buddy Holly! (and no- I wasn’t born in the 60s!)
Wow- I feel like some of my answers to these make me sound about 50 years older than I am… anyone else have strangely old fashioned tastes? And what makes you nostalgic at this time of year? Let me know in the comments!
