I will survive!

So hello I am here and I am writing another Blog for Magical Monday, which means that I managed to survive! I didn’t even have to use my extra pain medication or anything…Although for safe measure I did put an ice pack on my leg when I got back

What type of pets do you have or want?  Or do you not want pets?

I have to say that I am very lucky to be a fur-aunty to a 3 kilogram chihuahua crossed-Pomeranian and sometimes I feel that she’s the only one who has my whole heart. Which also scares me a whole lot. I lost my Pomeranian a couple of years ago and I was completely devastated. I can’t help it though, she’s just so sweet.

What was or is your favorite cartoon?

I am not sure that I could ever just pick one, but if I really did it would have to be Rogue from X-Men (mainly the 90’s version). I don’t know why but I’ve just related to her, even though our temperate is completely opposite from each other. I just really enjoy her character and the whole “not being able to touch”. I’ve always had issues with touching and hugging etc.

When you’re alone at home, do you wear shoes, socks, slippers, or go barefoot?

I have to wear always wear something on my feet, they just get to cold. Even sometimes during Summer I have to still have socks on. When I’m at home it’s usual socks or my slippers, I find it hard to wear nothing on my feet.

Are you a traveler or a homebody? 

I am definitely a homebody, mainly because though I don’t really have the funds to be a traveller. In my own head I am a traveller,lol.

What are your favourite spices?

It depends what we’re talking about here. I love all sorts of spices in all sorts of different way. I love cinnamon on top of my chai latte, but I also love how certain herbs will make my spaghetti bolognase taste amazing. I am honestly not sure that I could ever choose just one spice.

What object do you always have with you when traveling and why?

Apart from the obvious, the other thing I always travel with is at least one book. No matter what situation I am going into, it’s great to have a book that I can read whenever there might be an “appropriate” moment. The other thing that I do though is always pack an extra pair of underwear, you never know when someone might through you into a lake and ruin your underwear!

What is one thing you love about being an adult?

The freedom, even with or without a car. The ability to be able to go where ever we want whenever we want, there’s no one to answer too. I don’t have to be in a by a certain time, and I can have whoever I want over. By the same token though, sometimes my Mum always knew who was a good person and a bad person for me too be around.

What item, that you don’t have already, would you most like to own?

I have been wanting to get a 80’s Rogue X-men figurine for the longest of times, but they are always either not available any-more or they are way to expensive. Either that or if I’m being all socially responsible I would get the outside entertainment dining set-up for my Mum. I kind of want it too though,lol.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful for my new partner, he is just lovely and I actually feel like he would actually miss me if we broke up. He treats me so well and he hasn’t made me cry once! The week coming up? … It’s my birthday next week so anything that happens to me is going to be great!

Rogue is my girl!

YAY!!! Monday’s are rapidly becoming one of my favourite days of the week and I have to say that it is because of this Monday Magic Blog. It has been great looking through all my books, comics, television shows, music and movies and looking at characters that have made influence over my life. Even finding new characters, my Blog for Australia Day, meant that I spent a lot of that day reading Indigenous stories.

So this week I am talking about one of my favourite “Girls” because I don’t think that I have made even Monday about a girl yet!…Rogue!

I have loved Rogue as far back as I can even remember. I don’t even actually remember when I first saw her. When I met my first boyfriend he use to play Marvel vs Capcom and he was suitably impressed that I knew who she was. I have also recently acquired the 80’s tv series on DVD and have loved re-watching it all. I have always related to Rogue in terms of her being afraid of letting anyone near her or to touch her and I don’t just mean physically. I also relate to the fierce nature she has of protecting people that she cares about.

Origin: Rogue was first featured as a Villain in Avengers Annual #10 in November 1981. She was adopted by Mystique and for many years was brought up in the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. During a fight with Ms Marvel, Rogue accidentally absorbed Ms Marvel’s and Kree’s powers and this made her turn to the X-Men for help as she feared for her sanity. Rogue’s real name is also Anna Marie.

Powers/Ability: The ability to absorb and depending on how long she touches you for, she can take your abilities for a short while or permanently. Rogue, at one time, did lose her abilities after an encounter with Vargas. Over the years Rogue has learnt to control her powers.

Love Interest: Two of the most popular comic characters Rogue and Gambit are well-known as a power couple (and one of my favourites) in the X-Men comics. Their relationship is a very interesting one, especially with Rogue’s inability to physically able to touch or be touched, which proves to be a very large problem in their relationship. Over a long time though (and many other relationship problems) Rogue is able to control her powers to make that less of a problem.
