Ok, so I feel like I didn't put enough in the "books" category, but my mind always blanks when it comes to stuff like that. XD I also feel like my "random" category was SUPER WEIRD, but meh.

"Tag as many people as you want," eh? That would be both no one and everyone at the same time. I tag no one in particular, but if you've made it this far in the post....WHOOPS! Ya done been tagged. Congrats! ^.^ You'll have a really fun time with it! :D



  1. Aww this is so much fun!! I love Bubbly, such a great song. Also, I really liked Miss Peregrine as well...did you read the second one? I started it but couldn't really get into it...maybe I'll pick it back up this year.

    1. Yep, I read the second one! I really liked it; it felt a little more...intense than the last one? lol idk. Anyway, I'm excited for the last one! :D

  2. Hehe... "Ya done been tagged!" XD

    1. Lol yep! Have you done/will you do this tag?

  3. I commented before. . . but it seems to not be here. So here goes again:

    YES! Anything Sherlock Holmes. Who doesn't like Sherlock Holmes? I mean, you know, besides Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself. . .

    I'm not a huge fan of apples (unless there is also peanut butter around), but hot apple cider is one of the best things ever! It smells amazing, and it tastes like autumn. It's true. Autumn has a taste. *nods vigorously*

    Oo, have you heard the High Kings version of Red is the Rose?

    1. P.S. I tagged you for the Authorly Bucket List! I mean, if you want to, that is. :D

    2. Haha oh yeah! I almost forgot that Doyle got sooo sick of Holmes. XD

      Yeah, same. Apples are ok, and even the cider is "meh" for me, but I really love the smell of it. ^.^

      I don't think I've heard that, no! I'll have to check it out!

      Thanks for the tag!! :D At least half of it should be easy to think up... XD

  4. Owl City and The High Kings are a couple of my favorite bands! And I'm also fond of the word "egregious", and I absolutely love Irish dance! This was an awesome tag!

    1. Aren't they great?? And haha one time I had the phrase "a most egregious error" stuck in my head the whole day for no real reason. X)

      Thanks for dropping by! AND FOR FOLLOWING OMG! :D

  5. Haha this was so fun!! ME LOVE TACOS TOO!!!

    Also, I was VERY happy to see Artemis Fowl on your list:) You just need to finish the series now (just think more happiness is waiting!)


      Lol I know! I want to! I want to get them aaalll for my own. X)

  6. I love so many of your songs, and Eoin Colfer is great, too! Tacos, M&Ms, squirrelly, LOTR? These things make ME happy too! They are the best. Thanks so much for sharing them with us, Rachel! I smiled. :)

    1. Hehe,thanks, I'm glad! And OMG! I just looked at your Happiness Tag and realized, I TOTALLY SHOULD HAVE PUT STAR TREK ON MY LIST, TOO!! XD
