The July Ask Me is a little bit silly and random. It’s partially a tag post from Mariannelle, with the submitted Ask Me questions replacing the ones I didn’t like.

1. Full name

Bianca Jessica Smith

2. Zodiac sign

*quickly Googles* Sagittarius.

3. 3 fears

Spiders with black, hairy legs, over-sized things , and having to create a third fear.

4. 3 things I love

Winter, oh this is meant to be three. Winter and more winter.

5. Do you have any big trips on the horizon?

Define big? For some, Seattle is a big trip and I’m on Tuesday doing my second trip there in a week.

6. Last song I listened to

Does a podcast theme music count? I’ve been binging Potterless.

7. What’s your favourite way to relax after a stressful day / week?

I may not have enough submitted questions to remove the not as fun ones.
A week ago was a bleurgh week, so I left work on the Friday and sat in Starbucks with a sweet vanilla cold brew (coffee not beer, alcohol isn’t sold in Starbucks this far north), and I finished reading The House of One Thousand Eyes.

8. I haven’t read a book all year, but I read your blog. How does it feel knowing you’re currently my one source of literary sustenance?

I can’t criticize, I have the Blinkist app for non-fiction reading. It summarizes books to 15 minutes of the essentials.

9. What color underwear I’m wearing right now

Who says I’m wearing any? *checks* Black

10. How many tattoos/piercings do I have

With jewelry in them? Two, one in each ear. There are three others though.

11. The reason I started blogging

With Tap Dancing Spiders? Purely for fun and it was 2008. This site was started because TDS turned into business and I wanted to write other things too.

12. How I feel right now

Hot, sleepy, annoyed. Definitely a cold shower before bed tonight. Bleurgh, summer.

13. Something I really really want


14. My current relationship status

Is not linked to my identity so not relevant for here.

15. Meaning behind my URL

Mass consternation also means absolute bewilderment or confusion. It sums up life rather well. I wanted a snippet from a book, and this was from the last business book I had read. I don’t even recall the title.

16. My favourite movie

I’m not sure I have an all-time go-to favorite. Shooting Fish is a geeky romance that I adored. I rewatched it recently, and it’s still gorgeous. Moana is a favorite too.

17. My favourite song

I don’t care that much for music to have a favorite. Warrior Face from the Moana soundtrack (extended, it was dropped from the movie) has brilliant, empowering lyrics.

18. My favourite band

Same as above. Kind of.

19. 3 Things that upset me

People being nasty to other people just to boost their ego or to keep their status quo. Your normal is rarely someone else’s. It’s not bad, just different. Try it.

20. 3 Things that make me happy

Great coffee, people doing amazing things, adventuring.

21. What I find attractive in other people


22. Someone I miss

I’ve moved too often and met too many people, and I’m bound to miss someone, so I refuse to answer.

23. Someone I love

I love my favorite people.

24. My relationship with my parents

Is not a discussion for public consumption.

25. My favourite holiday

I’m internally leaving the Australian/UK spelling in the questions.
Thanksgiving is my favorite. It’s gorgeous with community and togetherness, without the commercialization or religion.

26. My closest blogging friend

I have close friends who blog, but none who would call themselves a blogger.

27. Someone famous I’d date

I tried outsourcing this to the baristas in the cafe where I’m writing this. None of us can think of any.

28. A confession

I don’t like superhero movies. Yeah, I had to “come out” with this. My nerd friends are very accepting of me, even if they don’t understand.

29. 3 Things that annoy me easily

Cupboard doors being left open.

30. My favourite animal

Polar bears. I want a pet one.

31. My pets

I’ve never found a pet that’s totally self-sufficient.

32. One thing I’ve lied about

That everything’s OK. Fake it ’til you make it, right?

33. Something that’s currently worrying me

That’s boring.

34. An embarrassing moment

Must I answer this?

35. Where I work

I work everywhere. It’s the fun of doing digital marketing. All I need is a computer and an internet connection.

36. Something that’s constantly on my mind

I’m not sure there’s one thing.

37. 3 Habits I have

I’m blanking on this. Tracking everything on ToDoist is a habit and a good one at that. To plan the day in my BestSelf journal, and a third would be to not follow through with the plan written in the BestSelf journal. I’m definitely more organized in the morning.

38. My future goals

To cut the number of questions down from 50.

39. Something I fantasise about

If I skipped a few questions but changed the numbers would anyone notice there are fewer than 50?

40. My favourite store

Etsy counts, right?

41. My favourite food

Spaghetti bolognese. It’s probably the only favorite on this page that I can count as all-time.

42. What I did yesterday

Sorted more Lego. I’m liquidating my collection, but when I moved last, all the Lego got thrown together in one box. That makes it sound like someone else did it. No, I was lazy and threw it all in one box. I regret it now.

43. Something I’m talented at

Being a perfectionist who isn’t perfect. My standards are high, and I rarely meet my own standards. It’s more modesty than beating myself up.

44. My idea of the perfect date

Dinner and a good book. Oh, you mean with another person? #ProudIntrovert

45. My celebrity crush

I don’t currently have one. Maybe I need one.

46. My favourite blog

Again, no all-time. I follow many blogs. The Pewter Wolf was the first book blog I followed.

47. Number of kids I want

I can’t give a socially acceptable answer to this and still be honest.

48. Do I smoke/drink

Drinking: a little. Smoking: ewww, yuck.

49. One word that describes me


50. My favourite quote

This is more a current favorite quote: “Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.” Thank you, Dumbledore.
