Twelve Questions - Crazy Kiwi Style

One of my friends on Steemit, @katrina-ariel, tagged me in this fabulous introduce-yourself-style challenge that @hobotang created.

Now I have to admit before joining Steemit I used to avoid challenges like this, but since I have done a few others and have found it fun reading posts of others that have done this I decided I would join in

Before I get to my Answers of course since photography is what I share on here, I started with what to me is a nice calming morning shot from Walnut beach one morning as the sun was rising.

#3 now to the Twelve Questions - Dragon Rider Style

  1. What 3 meals would you have before heading to the International Space Station?
    A good and hearty Irish breakfast would have to be first on my list, well the main parts of it for me would be Irish Sausages, Eggs and Baked Beans.
    Having typed that I don't think whoever would be in the shuttle going to the space station with me would be to happy with the after effects of that meal, so being a good team member perhaps I need to rethink that.
    OK then I will start with a good Roast dinner with New Zealand Lamb, I know I am biased but it is the best Lamb these is without a doubt in my mind.
    Second meal would be a Steak and Kidney Pie again from New Zealand dang just typing it out my mouth is watering I miss those pies.
    And the third meal would be strictly speaking a desert and one I haven't had for many years Queen Pudding like my Mum used to make, I am not even sure of the recipe or how she made it, but it was a Bead base, with a layer of Jam and a Meringue topping, sinfully bad for us but so damn nice.

  2. What section of the newspaper/library would you be?
    After thinking of the food in the last question I would have to be in a section for computers looking how to clean a keyboard when you have drooled all over it.
    But if a Newspaper the first section I read is normally the cartoons, then I move onto other sections, in a library I would either head to the photography section

  3. If you were immortal, what age would you choose to stop aging at and why?
    Hmmm thats a tough one, my initial thought would be 32 as thats one of my favorite numbers at an age that's not to young.

  4. What sport would you compete in, if you were in the Olympics?
    Rugby, Although I enjoyed playing other sports when I was younger and enjoy watching most sports, Rugby is still the one I love the most.

  5. If you had to go back in time to live the rest of your life where/when would you go?
    When I was younger and all Gungho I would have said back to the days of the Vikings, being a bit older and more calm and laid back I would probably have to go for the 60's

  6. If time and money were no barrier what would you create?
    World peace

  7. Have you ever completed anything on your bucket list?
    Yes I have been truly fortunate to have had opportunity to cross many off my list including one of the first things on my original bucket list, which I thought was never likely to happen, travel to at least 4 Countries, having been to over 60 I think that's well and truly crossed off.

  8. What would be the most surprising scientific discovery imaginable?
    Hmmmm another one that made me think, I guess great advances in Environmental protections and food provision ensuring plenty of natural food and water for everyone.

  9. Are you a good witch or bad witch?

I guess that would all depend on who you ask I am sure some would say good and some would say bad, what would you say of me.

  1. If you had to teach a class on one thing, what would you teach?
    I have been asked a few times to do classes and photo walks to help people learn a bit more about photogra[phy, but with my day job I just don't have the time, but maybe when I retire I will be able to do that.
  2. Which band / artist – dead or alive would play at your funeral?
    Well I have always thought of the Queen Song Another one bites the dust But perhaps that song may not be in good taste or appropriate to any of my family members who may be there, so I will not say specifically that song, but will say Queen and U2 as the bands I would like.
  3. What book or movie have you read/seen recently you would recommend and why?
    That would all depend on my mood, but the one that comes to mind was recently I watched Paddington 1 and 2 such a cute and sweet movie which also made one chuckle from time to time so thats the one I will go with.

Queen Pudding? I haven't had that in a very long time. Okay, I give. What is the difference between an Irish breakfast and an English breakfast? They sound almost identical to me...

·

Well I guess the main difference is the origin of the sausages and I love the Irish ones

·
·

Special kind of spicing?

·
·
·

The ones I like arent spiced to much I just think I prefer the taste others if used to English may well prefer those

Yay! Great answers. Thanks for playing. :) The "dragon rider style" thing was my own addition, but I'm always looking for more riders to join my crew. I'd come hang out with you in the 60s. Sounds like fun. ;)

Me to its something i have been passionate about and worked for a long time

I like the picture at top of the post. I like your answers but for breakfast I would have smoked salmon and afterwards strawberries and cream. There won't be much fruit and cream in space.
So
1 = Smoked salmon & then strawberries and cream for breakfast. Lunch would be a nice juicy steak and dinner a hot curry. Not because they are all my favorite foods but in space nothing will be like those foods. I will have foods to remember over the months.
2 = Fiction I have spent too many years reading technical stuff
3 = 36 by then I have reached my full potential, fit, strong, educated, good at my job and maximum earning potential. Basically I would know who I am, what I want, and how to get it.
4 = Running - short distance, fast
5 = 80's not the 60's it wasn't as good as they suggest. The music was good in the 60's, not so good in the 80's but life was full of opportunity and positive success potential
6 = World peace would be good but, improving peoples future prospects would be good for now
7 = I have completed a lot of my bucket list. I did things without realizing it was a list but my list made later includes many of the things I have done including traveling to half the world for free. Well it seems like half the world to me but it's not
8 = Replaceable energy without pollution or working people to death to get the raw ingredients. Probably solar panels one foot square (300mm) that produce enough energy to run a home completely all day and store some energy for the nighttime.
9 = I am a bad witch, they have all the fun
10 = I would teach cooking. Not that I cook but I understand how important it is and so few learn nowadays.
11 = It has to be the Beatles, played through the radio from a pirate radio ship
12 = I would always go with James Bond, silly would never happen films, but total escapism with humor thrown in. For a book, its not new in fact its old. By Alistair Maclean HMS Ulysses. Its set in the Arctic and when reading I actually felt cold.

So that's my lot. A little long but everyone says I talk too much. Sorry!

·

not to long at all and very interesting answers
I didnt think of the Beatles but I think that would be a good choice

I’m with you on the 60’s because of the great music. No decade is perfect though and the 60s certainly had aspects I wouldn’t want to see repeated. If I had my way, I’d rather go 30 years into the future, but that’s probably the optimist in me speaking. I’d have to have some pizza before blasting off into space.
