E.M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt #8

Welcome back to the next Sunday Ramble. For those that are just joining us, the Sunday Ramble Prompt will be based upon a certain topic. I will ask five questions (This week = six questions) about that topic, and you can ramble on however you wish. This post will be scheduled for 5 a.m. PST (California Time) every Sunday.

This week’s topic is “Zombies, Aliens, and Apocalypse…Oh My!“.

Here are the questions:

  1. Choose one person from history you would want on your team in a zombie apocalypse. Why would you choose them?
  2. What is your weapon of choice in that zombie apocalypse?
  3. If Mars was to enter the Earth’s atmosphere safely, and it became able to sustain life, would you choose to live on Earth or to check out Mars?
  4. What do you think they keep at Area 51?
  5. Do you have a favorite show about space or aliens that you enjoy watching?
  6. Bonus Question: Do you like to watch zombie movies or television shows?

Once you have answered all of the questions, be sure to tag it with #EM-SRP and create a pingback to this post.

Here are my answers:

  1. Choose one person from history you would want on your team in a zombie apocalypse. Why would you choose them?

    Amelia Earhart ~ She can fly planes and get me away from the zombies before I kill over and have a heart attack. I am deathly afraid of zombies, along with clowns and creepy porcelain dolls. 😀
  2. What is your weapon of choice in that zombie apocalypse?

    The Ghostbuster’s Proton Wand with the box to trap the SOBs in. However, I would need it modified by Tim the Toolman Taylor to work instantly instead of having to fight them into the trap with the electricity.
  3. If Mars was to enter the Earth’s atmosphere safely, and it became able to sustain life, would you choose to live on Earth or to check out Mars and live there permanently?

    As much as it sounds good to go live somewhere else, I would probably stay here because I don’t want to start over again. I think our planet is being killed by too many people on it, so it would be cool to have a split population. I could only hope all of the jerks head to Mars and leave Earth alone.
  4. What do you think they keep at Area 51?

    Honestly, everything they do not want us to see is at Area 51. I don’t know if that is aliens or dinosaurs. It could be nukes. All I know is that for one place to be so heavily guarded that it has to be something that would change the way we choose to live our lives if we knew those things existed. It’s kind of like the Vatican…except it’s guarded with guns instead of priests.
  5. Do you have a favorite show about space or aliens that you enjoy watching?

    My favorite movie about space is The Core, with Armageddon coming in second place. I will give third place to The Abyss.
  6. Bonus Question: Do you like to watch zombie movies or television shows?

    Heck to the NO! I cannot even watch the original zombie movies without night terrors. There is something really creepy and effed up about an undead person wanting to eat your flesh…eww!

I look forward to seeing your responses!

Last week’s Wrap Up! I enjoyed reading everyone’s book rambles! It was cool to hear how everyone viewed their books and book series. I learned about new books that I want to read and new ways of reading them. Thank you!

E.M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt #7

Welcome back to the next Sunday Ramble. For those that are just joining us, the Sunday Ramble Prompt will be based upon a certain topic. I will ask five questions about that topic, and you can ramble on however you wish. This post will be scheduled for 5 a.m. PST (California Time) every Sunday.

This week’s topic is “Books“.

Here are the questions:

  1. Do you prefer digital, paperback, or hard bound books?
  2. Do you have a library full of books or just your favorite tales?
  3. Harry Potter, Narnia, or Twilight? (You can choose all three or pick and choose.)
  4. Do you like when books are turned into movies? Why or why not?
  5. What is a book that you have read over and over again?

Once you have answered all of the questions, be sure to tag it with #EM-SRP and create a pingback to this post.

Please visit your fellow bloggers to see their rambles. It’s a nice way to get to know them *smiles*

Here are my answers:

  1. Do you prefer digital, paperback, or hard bound books?

    I am not a fan of digital forms of textbooks because I like annotation with little sticky notes. I prefer paperback and hard bound books. In many books, I use Audible. However, eBooks are good too on my tablet and PC, not so much on my phone though.
  2. Do you have a library full of books or just your favorite tales?

    I have a collection of college textbooks and my favorite books. I need more to be honest. I have always wanted to have a full bookcase of good books.
  3. Harry Potter, Narnia, or Twilight? (You can choose all three or pick and choose.)

    Narnia and Twilight…mostly because all of my Harry Potter books got stolen back in the early 2000s. I had a set of the books, whichever ones were released back then.

    With Narnia, I fell in love with it by reading The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.

    Twilight I read all four books front to back in 4 days because we had a huge ice storm in Arkansas. It knocked out the power for 11 days, so there was nothing else to do but read and play games. I fell in love with the saga and how Stephanie Meyer expressed the love between Bella and Edward. When the movies came out, I don’t think they got the vibe right between them. Bella was more sassy, and Edward was more protective in a sweet way in the books. He would never be as abrasive as he was portrayed in the movie.
  4. Do you like when books are turned into movies? Why or why not?

    It depends on the movie and the book. My favorite author is Stephen King, and I think they have done well with turning some of his movies to books.

    I think when books are turned to movies that they lack the emotion and expression that the author puts into the words of the book versus how it transcribes on film. We work hard to make our words visible, but sometimes I think the directors fall short on getting that vibe put into films. They sometimes do not have the expression of the imagination.
  5. What is a book that you have read over and over again?

    Bag of Bones by Stephen King

I look forward to seeing your responses!

xoxo, E.M.


Last week’s Wrap Up! I enjoyed reading everyone’s car rambles, and I got to learn a few different famous cars from your responses. It was great fun! I look forward to Sundays to see what everyone rambles about with me 🙂

E.M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt #6

Welcome back to the next Sunday Ramble. For those that are just joining us, the Sunday Ramble Prompt will be based upon a certain topic. I will ask five questions about that topic, and you can ramble on however you wish. This post will be scheduled for 5 a.m. PST (California Time) every Sunday.

This week’s topic is “Cars and Driving“.

Here are the questions:

  1. We all had a first car. What year, make, and model was your first car?
  2. If you won the lottery, would you buy your dream car and what kind would it be? If you do not care to talk about cars, how would you spend your lottery money?
  3. The Transporter (hauling other people and going from point A to point B), Gone in 60 Seconds (fast!), or Driving Miss Daisy (Slow)? (This would be examples of your driving style.)
  4. Which is your preference to drive on: Interstate, Freeways, or Back Roads?
  5. Pick your favorite famous car on television.

Once you have answered all of the questions, be sure to tag it with #EM-SRP and create a pingback to this post.

Please visit your fellow bloggers to see their rambles. It’s a nice way to get to know them *smiles*

Here are my answers:

  1. We all had a first car. What year, make, and model was your first car?

    My first car was a 1992 Ford Thunderbird Sport with a 5.0. Teal green with a lavender stripe…My mom gave it to me, but it had a head seal leak and eventually I sat and died.
  2. If you won the lottery, would you buy your dream car and what kind would it be? If you do not care to talk about cars, how would you spend your lottery money?

    I would. I want a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat in a new model. My second dream car would be an old 1970 Dodge Super Bee. Both dream cars could be purple, red, black, or grey. I have always loved cars, especially loud ones. I grew up on the back of Harley’s, so it kind of made me a motorhead. I am pretty good at diagnosing them, but I am not as good with fixing them with my own two hands.
  3. The Transporter (hauling other people and going from point A to point B), Gone in 60 Seconds (fast!), or Driving Miss Daisy (Slow)? (This would be examples of your driving style.)

    I am a mixture of all three, but since getting my Charger, I am a Gone in 60 Seconds kind of girl.
  4. Which is your preference to drive on: Interstate, Freeways, or Back Roads?

    Backroads…I get anxiety on the freeways. If the lanes go to three or more lanes of fast traffic, I have major anxiety, which is not safe for anyone. I avoid the freeways.
  5. Pick your favorite famous car on television.

This week’s topic is “pets“.

If you do not have pets or hate animals, you can use your imagination on the questions. *smiles*

Here are the questions:

  1. Do you have any pets? If you do, tell us about them (name, kind of pet, etc.)
  2. What nicknames do you call your pet(s)?
  3. Do your pet(s) like to travel with you in the car?
  4. If you had to imagine, who would your pet(s) be if they were human?
  5. What does your pet(s) do for you?

Once you have answered all of the questions, be sure to tag it with #EM-SRP and create a pingback to this post.

Please visit your fellow bloggers to see their rambles. It’s a nice way to get to know them *smiles*

Here are my answers:

  1. Do you have any pets? If you do, tell us about them (name, kind of pet, etc.)

    The photo above is of me with my two dogs in my old car (Felicia) before I got Delilah (my Dodge Charger). The one closest to me at my shoulder is Marcellus, and the little one in the seat is Niklaus. Niklaus is Marcellus’s father. Klaus is a chihuahua, and Marcel is a mix of mutts lol. His mother, Kami, was a small chihuahua/terrier type dog.
  2. What nicknames do you call your pet(s)?

    Niklaus – I call him Klaus, Klaus Mouse, and Mousy. He was very small when I got him, and my ex called him Klaus Mouse. It stuck, so he’s my Mousy. He gets called another name sometimes too because he has a big personality and can be a real jerk lol.

    Marcellus – I call him Marcel, Celly, Celly Bell, Cel Bell, and My Celly. He’s my emo dog…and I decided since Klaus was a rhyme on his nickname that I would rhyme Celly’s too.
  3. Do your pet(s) like to travel with you in the car?

    Sometimes! When the car is moving, they can tend to get kind of nervous, but once I get going down the road on long trips, they settle down.
  4. If you had to imagine, who would your pet(s) be if they were human?

    Klaus and Marcel were named after the Original Vampires from the show on the CW called The Originals. They were named accordingly and act exactly like their namesakes, so if they were human form, they would definitely be those two vamps. Klaus is a little guy with big attitude, and so was Niklaus Mikaelson. Marcel is an emotional dog that doesn’t take any crap from Klaus, but he is a caring dog. Marcel Gerard on the show was like that too, and Celly would definitely be him as a human.
  5. What does your pet(s) do for you?

    My furbabies are my furry children. They make me feel better when I am sad because they feel it and snuggle with me. I can always count on Marcel to lay on me and let me rub his chest when I feel like crap, and Mousy has to lick me in the face with the worst breath ever…it’s terrible. He’s a very kissy dog.

    They also drive me completely insane because they think they are the size of a rottweiler rather than chihuahuas. We have big dogs surrounding our back yard, and they think they need to attack the fence every single time they smell them. They have really big personalities.

I look forward to seeing your responses!

xoxo, E.M.

E.M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt #4

Welcome back to the next Sunday Ramble. For those that are just joining us, the Sunday Ramble Prompt will be based upon a certain topic. I will ask five questions about that topic, and you can ramble on however you wish.

  1. Glass half full or glass half empty?
  2. Train or airplane?
  3. Sneakers or dress shoes?
  4. See the future or change the past?
  5. Test the waters or dive in the deep end?

Once you have answered all of the questions, be sure to tag it with #EM-SRP and create a pingback to this post.

Please visit your fellow bloggers to see their rambles. It’s a nice way to get to know them *smiles*

Here are my answers:

  1. Glass half full or glass half empty?

    Half full kinda girl…
  2. Train or airplane?

    Train (local travel) – I like the peacefulness of it, especially if I can get a good seat up on the top floor of the double floor trains.

    Airplane (long distance travel) – I love the view of the sun above the clouds and the danger of it.
  3. Sneakers or dress shoes?

    Definitely sneakers! I have quite the collection of shoes and the socks to match them!
  4. See the future or change the past?

    Change the past… I would not want to see my future, but there are things in my past that would improve my quality of life if I could change them without ill effects.
  5. Test the waters or dive in the deep end?

    I’m a test the water person. I cannot dive in without knowing what is below me when I take the dive.

I look forward to seeing your responses!

E.M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt #3

Welcome back to the next Sunday Ramble. For those that are just joining us, the Sunday Ramble Prompt will be based upon a certain topic. I will ask five questions about that topic, and you can ramble on however you wish.

Photo by Karyme Franu00e7a on Pexels.com

This week’s topic is “dreams“.

Here are the questions:

  1. Do you dream when you sleep at night?
  2. Do you wish that dreams were portals to other worlds to explore? Where would the portals go if you wished for them?
  3. If you could talk to anyone in your dreams, who would it be and why?
  4. What is the greatest dream you have ever had? (If you do not dream, share something great that has happened in your life.)
  5. Do you believe that dreams have a purpose?

Once you have answered all of the questions, be sure to tag it with #EM-SRP and create a pingback to this post.

Please visit your fellow bloggers to see their rambles. It’s a nice way to get to know them *smiles*

Here are my answers:

  1. Do you dream when you sleep at night?

    I do! Sometimes I dream vividly, and other times I do not remember my dream. I like to remember the good ones.
  2. Do you wish that dreams were portals to other worlds to explore? Where would the portals go if you wished for them?

    That would be so awesome! So, my answer is yes! I always had a good imagination when I was a child and still to this day, and some of my favorite shows and books made me want to escape my life into portals of new worlds (like Neverending Story and The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe). I think it would be really cool to discover new places in my dreams. I think they would go to worlds like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory or to Oz lol. I would also like to sit on the moon in my dreams.
  3. If you could talk to anyone in your dreams, who would it be and why?

    I would love to talk to Martin Luther King Jr., Sam Cooke, and Malcolm X. They were amazing people that saw a lot of things that would help me in my causes and activism. It would be really cool to have a sit down in my dreams with them.
  4. What is the greatest dream you have ever had? (If you do not dream, share something great that has happened in your life.)

    My greatest dreams are always those that make me not want to wake up until I have finished them. The ones I remember always have to do with love and romance. Then there are the ones that have people in them that you have never met in your life before. I like those because I always wonder who the people are.
  5. Do you believe that dreams have a purpose?

    I think so. My dreams always give me an idea on how life is going. If I am having good dreams, then I am fulfilled in my current situation. When I have bad dreams (that are not triggered by scary things), it makes me pay attention and be aware if I see those things in my real life. I think they can have the purpose of being warnings. You just have to be open to see between the lines and read the signs the dreams give you.

I look forward to seeing your responses!

E.M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt #2

Welcome back to the next Sunday Ramble. For those that are just joining us, the Sunday Ramble Prompt will be based upon a certain topic. I will ask five questions about that topic, and you can ramble on however you wish.

This week’s topic is “favorites“.

Here are the questions:

  1. What is your all time favorite food for any occasion?
  2. What is your favorite season and why?
  3. Where is your favorite hiding spot when you want to not be bothered by anyone or anything? If you do not have a special place, make one up.
  4. Who is your favorite person on the planet?
  5. What is your most favorite personality trait in other people?

Once you have answered all of the questions, be sure to tag it with #EM-SRP and create a pingback to this post.

Please visit your fellow bloggers to see their rambles. It’s a nice way to get to know them *smiles*

Here are my answers:

  1. What is your all time favorite food for any occasion?

    Tacos! I love tacos more than any other food because it’s fast, easy, and yummy!
  2. What is your favorite season and why?

    Spring…it’s not too hot and not too cold. I love the flowers blossoming and trees getting their leaves back. Summer is a good runner up thought due to the love I have for swimming and summer activities.
  3. Where is your favorite hiding spot when you want to not be bothered by anyone or anything? If you do not have a special place, make one up.

    When I want to be alone, I will go to a park or go for a drive, but if I don’t feel like doing those things, I will close the door to my room to get solitude. I will watch shows on TV, write, or play games. I just zone out and have that sacred time.
  4. Who is your favorite person on the planet?

    My grandmother…may she rest in peace. I miss her every single day. She was a great person, and I learned so much from her. Plus, she was always my rescue in my storms.
  5. What is your most favorite personality trait in other people?

    Witty – I like witty people. The ones who always have a cool thing to say to everything are my favorite types of people.

I look forward to seeing your responses!

xoxo, E.M.

E.M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt #1

I decided to start my own weekly prompt for us to ramble about. The Sunday Ramble will be based upon a certain topic. I will ask five questions about that topic, and you can ramble on however you wish.

Would You Rather style typographic typo vector design logotype quiz game logo design logo

This week’s topic is “would you rather...”

Here are the questions:

  1. Would you rather be alone or be in a large group of people?
  2. Would you rather live on the beach or live in the mountains?
  3. Would you rather tell people how you feel or keep your feelings to yourself?
  4. Would you rather be filthy rich or just live comfortably?
  5. Would you rather watch a new movie at home or at the theatre?

Once you have answered all of the questions, be sure to tag it with #EM-SRP and create a pingback to this post.

Please visit your fellow bloggers to see their rambles. It’s a nice way to get to know them *smiles*

Here are my answers:

  1. Would you rather be alone or be in a large group of people?

    Most times, I like spending time alone. Big groups of people make me anxious because of my social anxiety. There are times that I am an absolute hermit.
  2. Would you rather live on the beach or live in the mountains?

    Definitely the beach! I don’t like snow, and I love the ocean.
  3. Would you rather tell people how you feel or keep your feelings to yourself?

    I would rather tell people how I feel, but sometimes it’s easier to keep things to myself. Sometimes my feelings impede on the feelings of others, so I try to be respectful of that.
  4. Would you rather be filthy rich or just live comfortably?

    I would just like to live comfortably. I have been broke most of my life, so it would be nice to just be able to have my own things and get things I want without the poverty aspect.
  5. Would you rather watch a new movie at home or at the theatre?

    I love going to the theatre. It’s something about the smell of popcorn and the big screen that makes a movie much more fun when you first see it.

I look forward to seeing your responses!

xoxo, E.M.
