Acknowledge the blogger who nominated your blog.
Answer the questions.
Nominate 11 other new bloggers to encourage them.
Ask them 11 questions
Let them know you have nominated them.

Without further delay, I’d like to move on to answering the asked questions.

  1. Who was your best teacher at school and why?

There are quite a few, but I’d say that my best teacher was someone closer to home and not school. My Grandfather, taught me a wide range of subjects all through my school years; made me write in, and translate from, different languages; gave me books to read; told me stories from his favourite novels and movies; and pointed me to path that led me to who I am today.

  1. Which are your three favourite movies?

I love movies, which makes it really difficult for me to limit my answer to just three, but anyway, they are : 1- The Pianist; 2- ‘Before’ series (Before Sunrise; Before Sunset; Before Midnight); and 3- Memoirs of a Geisha

  1. What is your best blog post to date? Please link.

I do love each post dearly, which is why I share them with the world, but if I must choose one, then I’d say “The Son of the Slave”; the link to which is :

  1. Of the 11 questions here, which is the worst for you and why?

Question 10, because it is wearing the cloak of invisibility…

  1. If you had to be one of these three cartoon characters which one would you be and why? Goofy, Pluto, Roger Rabbit?

I guess Goofy because I’d get to hang out with Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.

  1. Do you ever talk to yourself, and if so what do you say?

Haha, I always talk to myself (but not out loud); and just about everything.

  1. Of these three sounds, which one describes you the best and why? Ping, Ting, Bong!

Most times I’m Ping,

yet sometimes I go, Ting,

but watch out for me when I’m Bong!

For I guess I’m a song,

with no one little sound,

but with all the three, called,

Ping, Ting and Bong!

8) Boots or sandals?


  1. Which one of these dwarfs are you? Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Bashful, Sneezy, Dopey, Sleepy – but more importantly WHY?

Sleepy – need I really tell why?

11) What was the answer to question 10?

This : Well, of course I can’t see you through the cloak of invisibility!
