My first vlog. And almost-attempt at Formspring.

It seems like Formspring briefly took over the world in the last couple of weeks, and – as formerly experienced with Twitter, Facebook and more recently, Gchat – I felt like a total new kid on the technology block.  It’s not that I was scared I wouldn’t know how to use it (seriously, SO thankful I have people who will walk and talk me through it without pointing and laughing at me) – I was scared nobody would have anything to say.  I wasn’t scared I’d get awkward questions I wouldn’t want to answer – I was scared I’d be a total Billy No Mates!

So I figured I’d kill one two three birds with one stone, and write one of these posts. You know, where people just ask you whatever they want to know about you in the comments,  and you take a couple of weeks to compose your perfectly witty responses and reveal your secrets to the world.  Except I said three birds.  VLOGGING.  I haven’t spoken to any of you literally before, and I think I’m ready (quote me around this time next week when I’m spouting “broken camera” excuses).  I don’t have a webcam – so I’ll answer them all in a short little 3 minute (little memory card, sorry!) video for you in a few weeks!

So, what do you want to know? I’ll answer anything. Promise. But you get cookies if you keep it nice and don’t ask me to sing. 🙂


  1. I don’t really have anything to ask you that I haven’t already…but….how about this:

    You’re really into your British culture, in an ideal world would you like to live in the UK or do you like having access to it from a distance but living in one of the colonies? 😉

  2. two questions:

    1) What is your dream life? Are you living it now? What would you change?

    2) If you could go back and redo a part of your life, what would it be and how would you change it?


  3. OH. WHAT. A. CUTE. IDEA. I want to Vlog but need topics… and ASKING people? Genius. Can I copy? Except for people would be like hey, we don’t care, we don’t wanna ask you crap.

    Let’s see…

    01. If you visit anywhere in the world, where would you go (pretend you’re rich and or have connections)?

    02. Can you lend ME your accent, as I have none of my own and really want to sound cool?

    Love, Me.

    1. LOL of course you can do it too! And I felt VERY “people aren’t gonna care, they’re not going to wanna ask me crap” when I posted it but I figured it might be fun 🙂 And might help me with my whole “scared to be in front of people” stuff 🙂

  4. Spent the morning tripping around in your blog and by extension your head: a happy, sane place. A tip of my hardhat for the link to Mumford & Sons (a soundtrack to my excursion).
    For what it’s worth, I married on a snowy winter day. There were a lot of problems on the roads and quite a few people were late but we only had the chapel for an hour and so we had to get on with it. Everyone arrived within the hour and the reception followed in the same building but it would have been nice if we could have waited till all were in the door and safely accounted for.
    None the less a good time was had by all.

    1. Oh yes, and as I already said to you, I’m really excited you’re doing this! Maybe I’ll do one of these as well, one day.

  5. I’m seriously so excited about this vlog! I can’t wait to see it and hear your accent! 😉

    I need to do a vlog. But it’s so nerve-wracking!

    Anyway, my question for you is: I know you suffer a lot with anxiety. What’s the biggest area that you struggle with (i.e., confidence in your looks or abilities)?

    And since you asked me the same question: what’s the biggest dream you hope to achieve in your lifetime?

  6. You realise that you (along with Seb) are representing the entirety of Britain in your accents, so if it turns out you sound more Essex than Chelsea I will be very disappointed 😉

    Since your since your first fabulous foray into the formidable (damn ran out of F’s) world of blogging, what have been your biggest surprise, disappointment and thought-inspiring moments?

  7. 1. Does your blog feel like an accurate representation of who you are or are there things about you that don’t translate into this medium?

    2. What’s a big, scary goal you have for yourself?

    3. What’s your favorite dessert!

    So looking forward to the vlog. It’s kind of awkward at first, but gets easier! I was addicted to it right away.

  9. Hi Em! 🙂 (I realize that you’ve alread filmed the vlog, but I’m just nosey.) xoxo

    1) What are you favoritie books? Authors?

    2) Are there any movies that are based on books that you like more than the book?

    3) When is your favorite time to read?

    1. Oh I would’ve loved to address this one in the vlog!!! 😦

      1) Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett and Mervyn Peake are my favourites

      2) I don’t think so. Neil Gaiman’s “Stardust” was an AMAZING movie, but I thoroughly enjoyed the book too… usually I hate the movies!

      3) Probably on a Sunday afternoon, bundled up in bed with the cat 🙂

  10. I’m horribly behind in commenting, but I refuse to believe that you would do an awkward vlog. I’m looking forward to seeing it later in the week.
