Tumblr TV Quiz

I was scrolling away through Tumblr, you know, like you do, and I came across this TV quiz, which I thought would be fun to try. The questions are in bold and my answers are in italic. Why not grab some paper and answer the questions yourself? At the same time you can read my answers too, just for inspiration! And if your not sure what one of my 5 shows is then click on it- I've hyper linked the show names to their Wikipedia page.

Pick 5 TV Shows you like before reading the questions.

I couldn't find a titles picture for Way To Go, so I decided to just leave it, hope you don't mind, because it's tough if you do!

1. Who is your favourite character in 2?
Chuck Bass
2. Who is your least favourite character in 1?
3. What’s your favourite episode of 4?
That's quite a tough question! My favourite contestants that have been on the show so far are Philip Schofield, Paddy McGuinness and Rufus Hound. The Wanted Special was also quite a good episode.
4. What is your favourite season of 5?
I've only really just started watching the show, so it has to be the latest series, series 3. At some point though I am determined to catch up on the other series!
5. What’s your favourite relationship in 3?
Rory and Dino
6. Who is your anti-relationship in 2?
Serena and Dan
7. How long have you watched 1?
Since it began, and seeing as it's only on it's first series, not long.
8. How did you become interested in 3?
Lots of my friends watched it and tweeted about how funny it was so I thought I'd go take a look at it, and I'm glad I did because it's excellent!
9. Who is your favorite actor in 4?
Well, there's only really one actor, and that's Leigh Francis, who presents the show as Keith Lemon.
11. Which show have you seen more episodes of 1 or 3?
3, although I only started watching it recently I've managed to watch all of the previous series.
12. If you could be anyone from 4, who would you be?
Holly Willoughby because she always looks stylish!
13. How would you kill off your favourite character in 5?
I don't really have a favourite character  though the main character is Miranda and she'd simply have to die in a really peculiar  funny and unusual way. Of course I hope she doesn't die otherwise there wouldn't really be a show left!
14. Would a 1/3 crossover work
A crossover between Way To Go and Mrs Browns Boys could probably work quite well. Mrs Browne could pay Scott & co to come and kill Grandad, using their McFlurry suicide machine.
15. Pair two characters in 1 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple.
You can't really answer this question, as the cast consists mostly of three men, one of whom is married and the other two of whom are step-brothers, and that would be incest.
16. Overall, which show has the better cast, 3 or 5?

3, Mrs Browns Boys has a bigger cast and 99.9999% of the cast are related in some way or other, so it has to be better!
17. Which has the better theme music, 2 or 4?
2 has the better music most definatley, because it has the voice of Gossip Girl speaking over it.

Well, doing that quiz really got me thinking, I don't know about you! If you want to visit my tumblr than either click on the tumblr logo on the right hand side of the page or click on the word 'Tumblr' which is located on the top of this page.

Kind of Spooky...

Today in history the teacher kept going on about how we are all being watched. Which I found freaky, but, at the same time, quite interesting. 

You have a laptop, right? And a phone? And perhaps a iPod? For all of these technology things you download apps, and you always have to agree to various terms and conditions in order to download them. Do you actually read the terms and conditions? I bet you don't, I certainly don't. Should I read any of the terms and conditions chances are I wouldn't understand many, if any, of them. What  access rights have you given the companies who own these apps? You don't know. On my Android phone it says that my Twitter app has permission to use my location, my personal information including contact data, prevent my phone from sleeping and many more things. The network provider of your phone can look at anything you put on your phone, look at your messages, your calenders, your internet history. And the government can, at any time, ask your phone company for access to your phone, something which I find rather worrying, to say the least. Yes, I have a password on my phone to keep it private, but it's not really private at all. In fact, anything to do with technology is not private. And since almost everything is related to some network, some technology, virtually nothing is private these days. Nothing at all.

Nineteen Eighty Four, a book by George Orwell (who also wrote Animal Farm, which you may study/have studied during your GCSEs's) is all about a world where nothing is private, and where big brother is watching your every move. I'm determined to read this book at some point, probably over the summer after my exams as it seems quite interesting. 

How quickly could they find you?
There's currently a program on channel 4 called Utopia. I'm not 100% sure what its about because I've never watched it. However, there is a Utopia quiz, which, once answered tells you how quickly the government could find you, should they want to. Here's what I got:
Click HERE to take the quiz, and see how long it would take THEM to find YOU.

'I Love You Blair Waldorf, Always Have, Always Will' 'Of Course I Love You Chuck, I've Always Loved You'

Chuck & Blair had such a roller-coaster of a relationship, and their relationship is the main thing I miss now that Gossip Girl is over. Let's remind ourselves of their rocky, perfect, tense, loving relationship with some of their best quotes.

'Just because we can't be together doesn't mean I won't always love you'

'Of course I love you Chuck, I've always loved you'

'Sometimes a queen has to make a choice; a castle with a white knight or a quest with a dark prince'

'It wouldn't be my world without you in it'

'They say it's a broken heart but I hurt in my whole body'

'Life with you could never be boring'

'In the face of true love you don't just give up, even if the object of your affection is begging you too'

'I love you Blair Waldorf, always have, always will'

'All I did was love you. You said you would stand by me through everything'

'You are the lightest thing that ever came into my life'

Get Wavy Hair In 8 Simple Steps!

This simple, easy technique takes about only 5 minutes to do and if I can do it, anyone can!

Just before bed....
1) Brush your hair.
2) Tightly plait your dry hair. I plait mine into four equal braids but you can do as many plaits as you like. The more plaits you do the more wavy your hair will be!
3) Gather all of your plaits together and loosely tie a hair bobble around them just to stop them from annoying you. 
3) Go to sleep.

In the morning....
4) Get up and get completely ready to go out. 
5) Undo your plaits. 
6) Using a soft brush if possible gently brush over the top of your head. Try to avoid brushing over the length part of your hair which was plaited unless you want a more wild, frizzy look.
7) Using your fingers and being as light as possible with your hair create your parting. If you have a fringe then brush and style it.
8) If you want to spritz over your hair with hairspray.

Hope my instructions were understandable!

Infinity Scarf -> 3 Skirts -> 2 Dresses

I was randomly looking through YouTube as you do when I came across this video. It shows how to turn an infinity scarf into a peplum, maxi or mini skirt as well as a normal dress and a dress with a sweetheart neckline. I haven't got an infinity scarf yet, YET, so I've not had chance to test it out quite yet but the very second I have one I will test these skirt/dress ideas out and let you know how I get on!

So as you can see, it really doesn't seem all that complex! And buying one infinity scarf is much, much cheaper than buying three skirts and two dresses. If you have an infinity scarf have a go and be sure to comment below, letting me know how you get on! Of course, if your super-eager to try this out then you can easily make your own infinity scarf buy sewing the ends of a regular scarf together, just be sure to check that the scarf isn't twisted before you begin to sew!
