I Am Inspiring!

Yesterday, nevillegirl presented me with a new blog award I haven’t seen before, the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

So thank you, nevillegirl.

Rules: 

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you. Boom. Done.
  2. Place the award on your site. Boom. Done again.
  3. Share 7 random things about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 blogs. Let them know they’ve been nominated and how to accept the award.

 

Now for seven random things about me……..

  1. My mom has a basket that you put on a step, and part of it goes on one step, and the rest of it goes on a lower step, and I love it because it’s so cool.
  2. I keep meaning to make little ghosts to hang in the big tree for Halloween, but I never got around to doing it.
  3. I wore a great red cape today, and I wanted to make it into my Halloween costume, but I couldn’t think of anything mind-blowing. (Any ideas?)
  4. I had some of that Japanese soda where you open it and there’s a marble inside, but it won’t come out (the marble) and it was HEAVENLY CARBONATED FIZZ.
  5. I’ve been in a Christmassy mood lately.
  6. I will start laughing hysterically when somebody gets a present and they have no idea what it is, and I know exactly what it is. Then the gift recipient tends to get a little freaked out by my maniac-evil-Voldemort-like laughing.
  7. I painted a birdhouse today.

Here are my nominees. I didn’t do fifteen because that’s a lot of people, and a lot of them who I want to nominate have already  been nominated.

Four more nominees! Four is a nice round number…..or is it? Can a number be round?

I Feel Loved Today

Yesterday, I was graced with a blog award, The Fantastic Blog Award, to be exact.

Ta-da!

Anyway, the rules seem to have been lost somewhere in the blogosphere, but from Shonti’s blog, whom I received this lovely award from, you answer the questions, write some questions, and post your nominees.

So, here are the questions from Shonti:

1. If you can be any animal what would it be? I would so be a dolphin.

2. If you were in the ultimate game of hide and seek and you could hide anywhere in the USA where would it be? Why? (and before you ask how the seeker would find you, you would have a tracking device strapped onto you)In the crowds of DisneyWorld. This is because even with a tracking device, those crowds are HUGE. So it would be quite hard to find me. I think it’s unfair to give the seeker a tracker, though. They ought to give the hiders a tracker instead because then they could know where the tracker was. If we did play it that way, though, I would so not want to play if I was the seeker.

3. If you could pick one person to spend the whole day with, who would it be? What would you do? Hmm…………because a lot of the people I know would drive me crazy if I was forced had to spend a day with them. I’ll guess I could say my old teacher, Mrs. Abbott, because instead of driving me crazy, I’d drive her crazy 😀

4. You are being forced to marry a fictional character, who would it be? WHAT?!?!?! Ohhhkayyyyy…I guess . Oh, jeez, I don’t know. Probably someone from Harry Potter, because Peeta’s probably taken already. Probably the same with Gale.

5. What’s your life saying? I do not have a life saying. However, I can make one up on the spot, which is what I intend to do now. It is…. Unicorns and nerdiness are awesome! So be a nerdy unicorn! 😀 😀 😀 😀

Here are my five questions….

  1. What is the name of your bedroom door? Why does it have that name?
  2. What is the most recent WORST book that you read?
  3. Do you enjoy old-fashioned telephones? Why/why not?
  4. If you could only read one book through the whole year, which one would it be?
  5. What is the best part of your blog/your favorite widget?

Now for the nominees.

Allegra at All I Need Is A Keyboard!

Kirsten at Kirsten Writes!

Aaaannnd….

Lily at Lily’s Notes In The Margins!

I seem to have been tagged?

I guess, from Liam, over at This Page Intentionally Left Blank I have been tagged.Apparently this seems like a blog award.

So, here are the rules.

~You must post the rules
~Post eleven facts about yourself on the blog post
~Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
~Tag eleven bloggers, however, you can break the rules and tag fewer people if you want. Make sure you hyperlink their names/blogs.
~Let them know you’ve tagged them!

Eleven facts.. okay, here we go.

  1. I think that if someone should have a tractor it would be red.
  2. When I went to the park today there was a dog poop on the slide.
  3. I want to know why we have to do eleven facts.
  4. sibfjkdbvjdbvdb
  5. That was fun to type.
  6. I play the violin.
  7. I have golden brown hair.
  8. For Easter I got these awesome sock monkey pajamas!
  9. I like the show The Biggest Loser
  10. I also like Dancing with the Stars
  11. And Americas Funniest Home Videos.
  1. Pirates, ninjas, knights, or dragon riders? (Not exclusively Eragon-style or anything like that, but just someone who rides dragons.)Um, ninjas, I guess.
  2. If you could live in any time period (in the past) other than your own, what would it be?The 1960’s! They seem like such a happy decade to live in.
  3. Do you like reading or writing prose or poetry best?Reading. Duh.
  4. Pepsi or Coke?Don’t like either.
  5. Where do most of your ideas (good or bad) for writing come from?Well, obviously they come from my head. But I do get some from random people doing awkward things in public.
  6. What’s your favorite mood? (To be in, or to write about, or anything.)Well, I kinda like to be happy 🙂
  7. Grey or gray? Gray. It seems happier somehow.
  8. What makes you happy? Unicorns, rainbows, and my dog, just to name a few.
  9. If you could have a big red button for anything from ordering pizza to turning on your TV to instant world domination, what would it be for? I don’t know. Probably a servant to go get me a soda or pizza or whatever I wanted. But a million dollars would be nice, too.
  10. Cats, dogs or aardvarks?Aardvarks. COOLIO!!
  11. If you could shorten or lengthen the list of questions and things about yourself for this tagging thing, how many things would you want?Well, I don’t want any facts because I am no good at thinking of those, but I like the eleven question thing. Eleven is a good number.

Okay. My eleven questions.

  • What is the best thing you have heard all day?
  • What has been the scariest thing you have ever done?
  • Why do you like/not like the color lime green?
  • What color is your favorite pair of socks?
  • What part about your blog gets you mad every time you see it?
  • Liam, I hope you don’t mind but I’m using your question. If you could have a big red button that could do anything from ordering pizza to instant world peace, what would it do?
  • What is your favorite song right now?
  • What does your bedroom light look like?
  • If you had to persuade someone to coat themselves in pink mud, what would you say to convince them to do it?
  • If you suddenly were informed you had a dinosaur skeleton worth about 1.2 million in your backyard, what would you do?
  • And finally, if you could have a superpower what would it be?
  • I hereby tag:

  • Dragons, Unicorns and Other Random Things

    And everyone, that I know in my corner of the blogging world, seems to have been tagged, I am only tagging one here. But…. if you haven’t gotten tagged, let me know and I will tag you too, and everyone will be happy!
