I was nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.
Much thanks and appreciation to Adrea from Adrea in Wonderland for nominating me.
I’m not exactly sure what the award means It might just be the equivalent of those trophies for participation that people receive in elementary sports, but you know what? I really don’t care. I was nominated for AN AWARD! So, to feed my endless vanity, I shall comply with nominational procedure by answering a few questions about myself:
1. Your favourite color:
(Whenever I am asked this question, I must resist the urge to start singing, “Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?”)
I love color in general–especially vivid sunsets and rich-hued flowers. But my favorite color depends on categorization:
*Favorite color to decorate with? Gold/Red combinations
*Favorite color to wear? Black (so versatile!)
*Favorite color to rant about? Indigo’s exclusion from the ROYGBV spectrum. (Also, that pink really IS a color and is not just ‘anti-green’)
2. Your favourite animal:
I don’t have a favorite animal. But since cat-lady-hood seems the inevitable conclusion of my book-hoarding, anti-social tendencies, I’ll say cats.
3. Your favourite non-alcoholic drink:
Depends on my mood or the event:At Starbucks: Caramel Apple Spice
At home: Coffee with flavored cream
When in need of mood enhancement: Chai Tea
At a Ren Fair: ice cream float made with cinnamon ice cream and sparkling apple cider
4. Facebook or Twitter:
Facebook is infinitely more useful for stalking purposes. (Not that I stalk people. No. I would NEVER be a social media creeper….)
5. Your favourite pattern:
I don’t actually have a pattern opinion that is strong enough to warrant the status of “favorite”. This is clear fashionista failure on my part.
6. Do you prefer getting or giving presents:
Neither, actually. I am TERRIBLE at picking out presents for other people. So while I enjoy receiving gifts, it leaves me with a sense of guilt that I should do something equally awesome for the other person. That said, I always LOVE opening my mailbox to find something addressed to me inside. (Unless it’s a love letter from my Credit Card Company)
7. Your favourite number:
Why? Go read the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy ^_^
8. Your favourite day of the week:
Thursday. The hopeful anticipation of Friday is always fun. And on Thursday evening, the weekend hasn’t yet arrived, so I haven’t yet found myself at the point of having free time and realizing that I don’t have any grand and glorious plans for filling it ^_-
9. Your favourite flower:
I love flowers in general. But I’ve always been fond of yellow roses tinged with scarlet at the edges of the petal.
10. What is your passion?
If I had a passion, I would probably be out pursuing it instead of writing this blog post ^– (Oh wait…. maybe blogging is my new passion? Well, shucks and gee willikers ^^)
Side note: I wasn’t sure how to spell “gee willikers.” My first attempt was through Siri’s voice recognition.
This is what siri came up with: “G will occurs”. oops ^_^
